‘Anderson Cooper 360’ host Anderson Cooper discusses U.S. politics, international politics, and why he walked out of ‘Star Wars’ after just 45 minutes.
I walked out of a movie once. It was back in 1997 when I went to see Escape From L.A. which was basically part 2 of Escape From New York. I was just so damn bored. It was not nearly as good as the first movie and I just walked out, LOL
It’s rumored he is on cia payroll… Anyone heard of it?
I hated The Last Jedi. Good God, this movie has so many plotholes I’m surprised that Rian Johnson’s mind hasn’t been shot up with a machine gun yet! Johnson, who wrote this piece of garbage AND directed it, can’t create a movie to save his life! The Rose/Finn plotline can be completely removed and adds NOTHING to the movie but filler and making the use of CGI and “cool” looking aliens. Rose herself a new character, is so unlikable that she at times makes Jar Jar look somewhat decent! At the end of the movie, Finn decides to sacrifice himself to save the others when Rose’s stupid ass comes outta nowhere and crashes into him, says something to the extent of “You’re such a hero, Finn. I love you,” kisses him suddenly and passes the fuck out. Okay, we all know that Johnson is trying to FORCE a romance between her and Finn even though everyone knows and wants Finn and Rey to end up together because the attraction and passion was strong in 7 that JJ Abrams directed. But I’m guessing Disney is afraid of some backlash of a black man and white woman dating? I don’t know, but I get that impression. There’s a safecracker whom they meet and some lady named Holdo who is Leia’s successor after she is injured (I’ll get to that in a minute) who dies without having much or any character development that makes these new characters like Holdo, Rose, etc so unmemorable or unlikable and are just seemed to be there for filler, or just carry one plotline of the movie to point A to point B while it switches to the other plotline back and forth, back and forth. So Leia. (sighs) Leia, Leia, this was the final film appearance of Carrie Fisher who died in December 2016 of a heart attack at age 60 and this was one of the main reasons I wanted to see this. I figured they will kill her off in a heroic way that gives justice to her and Leia but what we got was something completely the opposite and cringy as all living fuck! So Kylo Ren, who is Leia’s son and who killed Han, his father in 7 is attacking her ship at one point in the movie, he hesitates on firing on the bridge and doesn’t but another ship does and blows everybody up. Now starts, are you ready? Leia is floating in space, not breathing, obviously very much dead, until all of a sudden, her fingers start moving and she starts to fly off towards the main Resistance ship in a stance/trance that makes her fucking MARY POPPINS/SUPERMAN LEIA! She actually flies to the ship and presses the airlock before fainting, what the fuck? Silence, absolute silence and some laughter too. Another thing that TLJ doesn’t need is humor every 2 minutes in every scene, okay? Star Wars is NOT to be a fancier version or sequel to Spaceballs! There were a little bit of humor here and there in The Force Awakens and it was great to see the original characters back and having fun with us then as well. Not here, it’s not needed. And now to Luke Skywalker, the famous Jedi master who defeated his evil father Darth Vader and brought peace to the galaxy is now is a hermit on an isolated ocean mountain island who acts anything but the Luke Skywalker we’ve known or had known up to this movie. Luke, who decided to open his own Jedi school to teach others to become Jedis themselves is betrayed by Ben Solo aka Kylo Ren some years ago, with his school destroyed and the threat of another evil leader wanting to takeover the galaxy, Luke goes into hiding and decides to let the galaxy fight for itself. I immediately knew that we were in trouble when as soon as we get back to Luke holding the blue lightsaber that Rey just gave him, he just callously tosses it over his shoulder like it’s nothing and walks off. The next thing that disturbed me was when Luke goes up to one of these creatures that live on the island with him and actually right there milks its nipples and drinks the disgusting blue milk, at this point I have no idea what is going on. It turns out as the movie goes on that Luke is a broken man, basically an old, cowardly somewhat drunk impression of a hermit who has lost faith in the Force and the ways of the Jedi. Luke is no longer the happy go lucky guy we came to know and love. He is very hesitant and gives Rey little to no training in the movie except for 2 lessons in 2 days and just like that, (snaps fingers) Rey is a Jedi master! Are you fucking kidding me?! Might as well just start printing out cards with your name saying “I’m a Jedi” and finally everybody is! In the past films, the impression was given that becoming and being called a Jedi was a badge of pride, honor, and the result of hard training and years of hard work. With MARY SUE here, I mean Rey, that impression is immediately trampled on by Rian Johnson as she is now a better Jedi than Luke in just 2 fucking days! Then there are the Porgs… THE PORGS! Ugh, they are basically space penguins with bigger eyes that are only used as comic relief and to me, annoying me when Rose wasn’t around. Some people say that the Porgs are like the Ewoks from TROTJ, but at least the fucking Ewoks DID SOMETHING! These were obviously just created to sell toys to kids. A fucking marketing gimmick. The scene where Chewbacca, (Who serves little to no purpose in this movie) is about to eat one of them and the rest just come out of the woodwork and start giving them the most pathetic, sad eyes I’ve ever seen in a movie which was supposed to make people go “Awwwwww” and some did, but to me it was just another facepalm annoying moments. Onto the Force connection between Rey and Kylo. During several points in the movie, they both telepathically communicate while each other are in different parts of the galaxy and it just comes completely out of left field and is never explained. It coulda been skipped. Oh and remember when JJ introduced to the Knights of Ren? Kylo’s followers? Yeah, not one word here. Captain Phasma, the silver plated stormtrooper lady who has a beef with Finn the deserter, yeah only has about 2 minutes of screen time before falling into a fiery abyss, presumably dead. Remember when they said she’d have more screen time than in 7? A lie. Phasma just becomes another throwaway character. Snoke, who is Kylo’s master lured Rey to him through Kylo because he knew that Kylo was weak, but doesn’t sense that Kylo turns 2 lightsabers towards him and slices Snoke in half while monologuing/laughing? Snoke is supposed to be all knowing and all powerful but can’t sense 2 moving lightsabers on the sides of him? Come on now! It looks like Kylo and Rey will join forces and he’ll come back to the light side but considering another movie needs to be made after this, that doesn’t happen and Kylo becomes the new leader of the First Order, not Snoke. Eventually Kylo and his crew find the remiances of the Resistance at their first abandoned base on some caveside planet and plans to go in and bomb the place. But before that could happens, mister Lukey boy emerges from the shadows and briefly chats with Leia, who recovers and Holdo dies after crashing the main ship into blah, blah, not important. The only good moment in my opinion was seeing Luke and Leia together for one last time on screen. Anyway, Luke goes out to face Kylo alone. It turns out Luke, the ultimate badass Jedi master is not even there! He’s telepathically holograming himself there while using the Force back on hermit planet. I knew something was off when Luke’s beard was a solid color again, he was wearing better robes like he had when he had his school and that with the artirlly barrage Kylo orders on him, there is nothing under his feet. By the time Kylo discovers that Luke is not there, the others have escaped through the other side of the abandoned base and get away and Finn and Rey meet again! And then Luke just dies in the most boring way possible, just during sunset and falls over and disappears from lack of energy/sleep, bravo Rian, brav fucking o! But then there’s the scene where Rey and Poe meet for the first time and I can just see Johnson trying to start a romance with them, no goddammit, no! You already killed Star Wars with this movie! Oh and you know all those fan theories that Rey is Luke’s daughter or Leia’s or Obi Wan’s granddaughter or something? It turns out that she’s …… wait for it, NOTHING! Rey is not related to anybody important! Her parents were just junkies who sold her into slavery when she was a toddler! This completely makes me care about what happens to Rey in 9, I just don’t care about her now. Seems that some of the things that JJ helped build/set up in 7 were completely ignored or just forgotten/crapped on altogether by Johnson in 8 and it’s kinda depressing! I have no idea how JJ is gonna fix SW’s for 9 and then have it go down again with Rian… I just hope that Rian takes some writing classes because that was the biggest drawback for me. At the end, all are alive of the “heroes except Luke and of course they are gonna kill Leia in 9 probably. After seeing this I must say it makes The Force Awakens look like a masterpiece! Rian Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy need to go, big time! They have obviously shit on the good Star Wars name! All this movie showed that they can push out a movie full of plotholes and lacking character development, slap “STAR WARS” on it and it will make them richer and richer by the second! I mean, this seems like it wasn’t made with love or care or with fan knowledge or anything. Kennedy and Johnson have turned Star Wars into just a cash cow series and of course they aren’t gonna listen to people like us because the next movie will make them money regardless and it sucks major ass. Anyway, I’d give The Last Jedi a 0 if I could! It just makes me feel left empty, confused, and angry. I WON’T be seeing this again!
From the Colberts Nation, we welcome you back 🙂
I love CNN, but their New Years Eve countdown was a bit weak this year.
I wish I’d walked out of Last Jedi
I thoroughly enjoyed Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi. I walked out of a movie only once in memory, that was Ridley Scott’s The Counselor. Maybe I’ll watch it again sometime.
I wish to fuck that Mr. Colbert would stop fucking interrupting his guests!!! He does it to every fucking one of them such that I’m beginning to wonder if he has a superiority complex; thinking that he’s the only one who matters, that it doesn’t matter what the guests say, it’s _his_ show, so he can talk over anyone he wants! I certainly hope not, because I quite like Mr. Colbert and his insightful brand of comedy. I love his monologues and I feel that he’s a worthy successor to the mightily awesome David Letterman. I just wish to fuck that he’d stop talking over his fucking guests!
NIW that he points that out I notice it in this french dude I work with hahaha
Rose should’ve died
You know what? When I can watch the most respected news man in the country and the most respected late night host in the country discuss a contact high we are in an objectively better world than yesterday.
“When we said we wanted you to make ‘The Last Jedi’.. we didn’t mean kill the franchise, Rian.”
I’m so sick of this Cooper…
He’s super hot
He seems pretty chill when he’s not doing the news
‘Mbuh’ is the French ‘Meh’, I guess.
Im completely in love with you anderson cooper
This movie is made for children, the test audiences were 10 year olds. This explains all the plotholes, the kids wouldnt notice or care. This explains all the cutesy creatures, max xmas profit in merch. This explains the childish jokes. THIS EXPLAINS CANTO BIGHT: The sequence is there to introduce the wish fulfillment audience analogues, the slave kids. The kid with unexplained force powers in particular, placed at the very end, would make the kid audience jump with ecstasy. Disney., making your fav Star Wars into Frozen.
