Hey everyone. Did you know that I’ve seen The Last Jedi twice??? You know all those questions you have? Well, I had them too…until I saw it for a second time. For the benefit of those of you with considerably less time on their hands than yours truly I will now answer all of those questions in no particular order.

  1. What was the significance of the old guy with the binoculars on Crait?

 

Oh, you mean General Caluan Ematt? Yeah, he’s a General so he’s a pretty big deal and here you are asking about him. With the loss of Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo due to her immense courage, General Ematt is kind of king shit in the Resistance. I mean, everyone else who didn’t have secret force powers already died when the command bridge of the Raddus got all blown up. And well, Holdo is a complete badass so she’s dead too. General Ematt, the “old guy with the binoculars”? This wasn’t even his first fucking movie. He was in The Force Awakens. He was in the first one! Were you all asking who the fuck Wedge was when you saw Empire Strikes Back? No, you weren’t, because he was in the fucking first one. Pay attention, I have more important questions to answer.

2.  We’re going to find out who Rey’s REAL parents are in Episode IX, right?

I’m pretty sure we found out who they were in Episode VIII. They’re in a pauper’s grave in the Jakku desert! They sold her for drinking money! Rey is a nobody! I guess there exists a remote possibility that Kylo Ren was lying to her but I don’t think so. Her parents were real fucking shitheads, he knows it…she knows it, and he decides to prey on that by suggesting that she is somebody but only to him. Hmmm, seems to fit character-wise and it makes sense from a narrative standpoint…which is why it’s obvious that her parents are really someone else and Kylo really is lying! Who could her parents be, then? All the likely candidates are already dead. Han, Luke, Ackbar, Leia (I don’t even want to think about how they kill her off). I guess it could be Nien Nunb. You’re looking for that “Luke, I am your father” moment where it doesn’t exist. Jesus christ, weren’t you the same people complaining that the The Force Awakens was too similar to the old movies and now here you are two years later clamoring for all of the same beats. Speaking of which…

      1. Ok, but who exactly is Snoke?

He’s some 7 ft tall force wielder in gold slippers that got bisected by Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber (RIP btw, I guess we’ll never know how it ended up in the bowels of Maz Kanata’s castle). Or he’s Darth Plageius. Except that he’s not because no one would give a flying fuck about that reveal. Remember Emperor Palpatine? Remember how we had no clue who he was? Then the prequels came along and we all wished we still had no clue who he was. See what happens when we start asking ridiculous questions? We get ridiculous movies as a reward. Snoke was the leader of the First Order. Kylo Ren killed him and took his place. Then in an ultimate act of bravery, Vice Admiral Holdo piloted a Mon Calamari Cruiser through his flagship at light speed. But he was already dead so I doubt he cared. He was just some old powerful guy that looked like he should be dead and now he is. I hope he takes that Ric Flair robe to whatever hell he’s currently residing in. I can’t believe I just spent this much time talking about Snoke when there are much better characters like Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo to talk about.

      1. Why didn’t Vice-Admiral Amilyn Holdo tell Poe what her plan was?

The question that’s on everyone’s minds. If she had just told him the plan, he would have went along with it, so why didn’t she just tell him? I mean, let’s just ignore the fact that he just sacrificed Cobalt Squadron in its entirety just so he could take down a Dreadnought, right? He was demoted from Commander to Captain. There’s something else too…wait, it’s coming to me. Oh yeah, he’s a fucking sexist piece of shit. The first time he sees Holdo he’s gets all “Her???” like she’s fucking Ann Veal. Yeah, she’s got purple hair and a turtleneck that goes on for days. So what? The leader of the Resistance is a fucking Princess…we should be beyond this crap at this point. You’re part of a resistance against a fascist military junta, you’re supposed to believe in things like gender equality by now! Holdo didn’t have to tell Poe the plan because he hadn’t earned it yet. She didn’t owe it to him. She was an Admiral and he was just a Captain, he should have stayed in his lane. He was really an asshole about the whole thing too, what with the mutiny and all. And after all of that bullshit he put her through, she still forgave him! He tried to mutiny her and she still liked him! She got over having a blaster pointed at her very quickly. Poe should be thankful, fucking ingrate that he is. I don’t know, maybe he learned something about leadership through the whole ordeal but I’m pretty sure he just ended up stealing her speech about how the Resistance will be the spark almost verbatim. You know, he just adds some of his trademark male bravado to make it his own. If fedoras existed in the Star Wars Universe , Poe would be wearing one. It’s ok though, really, some of our heroes can be total fucking assholes like Poe just was. We’ll always have the Amilyn Holdo’s of the galaxy to balance him out.

      1. Fair enough, but why didn’t Luke tell the Resistance he was just trying to buy them time to escape?

Do any of you even watch movies? I’m not even going to dignify this one with a response.

      1. Are Poe and Rey going to become an item?

Jesus christ. They just fucking met. They said hello. There’s one movie left. It’s not happening. Neither is Rey and Finn or Finn and Poe.

      1. You’re probably right but Kylo and Rey are totally going to kiss?

Ok, fine, I’ll bite. Kylo Ren and Rey aren’t just the Force sensitive power couple that we deserve, they’re the one that we need. Before going any further let’s keep in mind that Kylo isn’t entitled to a date with Rey just because he killed the Supreme Leader of the First Order for her. Doing nice things for her isn’t enough! There has to be something deeper, a real connection, ya know? Luckily for them (and us) that their connection is as real as it gets. They can see each other in their minds! That’s literally a real connection! She knows what he looks like without a shirt! Their hands touched! They killed all those red guys together! They are totally going to smooch and we are going to get to enjoy every minute of it. I wonder if using the Force makes you a better kisser? Were those really Ancient Jedi Texts or were they Ancient Jedi Books About Kissing? I can’t wait to find out!

      1. Porgs tho, amirite?

Yassssss, Porgs 4 Life.
