Quotes

[first lines]
Lor San Tekka: This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Poe Dameron: Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka: Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Poe Dameron: Well, she certainly is that.

Casting Couch?
6 October 2019 | by talmadgejassirSee all my reviews

It makes no sense that this film is so bad. This is the return of Star Wars after all, Disney. How can you screw it up so bad? Firstly, the story. What story? They ripped off the old episodes in order to reboot Star Wars for preteens. Secondly, the actors and actresses. Where did they find them? At Sith Agency Supplies? I am not angry that we were stuck with such bad casting. JJ Abrams taking Ridley whatshername off the market does all of us a favor. I am angry that I spent my time and anticipation thinking I will watch Star Wars when I watched Manhater Wars.

Isn't Kathleen Kennedy angry that JJ took her money and rented a couch for himself and Ridley?
