That’s one of the most honest and believable moments of the movie.  Out of all the crap dialogue, I never understood why people pick on the one of the only pieces which works.

I agree.  It's a good metaphor for Anakin's desire to leave Tatooine in favor of somewhere far more pleasant.

Most of their scenes together should have included similar dialogue.  It would have been much better than "You're so beautiful"...... "I'm so in love".... "I deeply love you"..... :facepalm:

Had a decent actor delivered those lines it might not be as cringe worthy. But it's horrid.

Just imagine a Top Level actor like Natalie Portman having to say her horrible lines.   It must have given her migraines.

I have all the Star Wars movies on DVD. The buck stops here tough. I'm taking a hard pass on this piece of garbage. Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson ruined the franchise. I literally hope something bad happens to these people..

Well, here's an online petition for you from Change.org:   Disney must fire Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson from Lucasfilm

https://www.change.o...fb-91ed9a87c96c

...we must give a vote of no confidence [nice nod!] in Kathleen Kennedy’s and Rian Johnson’s leadership. They should be removed from Lucasfilm and not be allowed to make another Star Wars movie. They have created a toxic organization that rewards poor job performance and is not open to receiving new ideas. They have also never looked at the success of Rogue One, which is everything a Star Wars film should be.

Episode VIII is nothing more than lazy and poorly written fan fiction, and we cannot have something like this happen again. The fans want good old fashioned story telling with real character development. They want to know and understand the struggles the characters are going through and how they overcame them. They want no political correctness, no underlying political agenda, and no bullshit. George Lucas also needs to come back to Disney as a Creative Consultant. The Disney writers have proven they do not understand how Star Wars works or what it’s about. If Disney does not take heed of what we are saying, then we will hit them where it hurts, which is in their bank account.

VIII is polarizing, but not universally hated. It'll likely be considered the least good of the new movies a decade down the road, but I doubt most will ever place it with I and II.

And for the record I love it. Looking forward to getting this one on blu-ray when I get the chance. IX has a lot to live up to... assuming Solo is good... anyone else think that teaser didn't look as promising as one would've hoped?

Because then it becomes a bit darker a la Rogue One which wasn't what they wanted. But I agree, it would’ve been better following Led’s idea. (I wouldn’t say it’d become top 3 for me though.)

That whole Del Toro sequence was just a waste of valuable movie time. Dumb

Yes, it was worse.  It was blatant pandering to children.  It was a Muppet Show music video.

I will NEVER watch it again.  It's the original version or nothing.
