I watched Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker last night. I was quite sad when my brother told me that it's getting horrible reviews before we entered the cinema, although, knowing that people are quite weird creatures, I tried to let it slide. IMO episode 9 tried to fix a lot of uncommon sense that happened in the episode 8, so that's a huge plus for me (then again, looking at the big picture it's a minus, simply because it's obvious they were making movies one by one, not even planning ahead for the next movie). Kylo Ren story turned out to be quite good imo (or at least I expected it to be worse). It also "makes sense" why the girl is strong, but yeah, it still has plenty of loopholes thinking about the logical SW universe. The storyline wasn't messed up, it was a nice adventure with good pacing. After seeing 2/3 of the movie I was thinking like "why is this part getting shat on" and that line stick on me during the entire movie eventually. That ending... IMO that's totally left open and my guess is that it will be reboot in 10-15 years time. I'd bet my ass on that. Shortly, out of the three, this part was the best one for me. Seeing imdb ratting and rotten tomatoes is just stupid as shit
That ending though... imo Ren using the force placed the baby in her stomach. She putting those lightsabers in the sand... I could totally see a kid (their kid ... but imagine that family power in him, my guess is that he would be the dark side) digging up those lightsabers from the sand as the opening scene in the future movie in like 10-15 years.
