All Jedi Who Died So Far Died Needlessly
9 June 2020 | by Latty-the-negroidSee all my reviews

The Jedi who were massacared at the Academy. The Jedi whom the emperor slayed. The Jedi who died in battle or were shot down in the arena. They all did not need to die. After all, doctor Rey here (Bad Robot University Alum. 2015) could have waved her hand, focused, grimaced for 2 second and voila all is good. And no stupid Jedi training needed either. Take that Yoda. Take that Kenobi. Heck take that The Force, Jedi, et cetra.

This film, and its associated trilogy, is so bad that I condemn fans of Disney, Bad Robot. You are exposed as being embarrassing and lowbrow.
