Regardless of whether one currently can play the discs in 4k, that's the version to add to one's library, staying future proof. 4 Stars

Those Star Wars films just keep on comin’! Especially, now with Disney at the wheel.

The nice thing is that Last Jedi, from Rian Johnson, is a quality effort.

One either loves the Star Wars universe, or probably couldn’t care less. I find myself somewhere in the middle. How many ways can one stage a battle in space?

Here we have women in the pilot’s seats, and like anyone in the military is aware, no pilot goes anywhere, especially into battle without proper lip colorings.

That noted, this one does work. It’s a huge affair, that lands beautifully within the series canon.

A major attribute is that The Last Jedi arrives in 4k, from large format data files, and it’s a stunner.

Hopefully, whether via game platforms or with a new 4k player, The Last Jedi will give 4k another uptick in popularity.

Regardless of whether one currently can play the discs in 4k, that’s the version to add to one’s library, staying future proof.

Audio in Dolby Atmos is huge, proscenium filling, and state of the art.

I thought it was pretty good, looking forward to watching in HDR. Luke was a punk though, not sure why they went that route but Disney enjoys screwing things up.

Good film and happy with the new series so far with Disney. I did read somewhere about Mark Hamill not being happy about the script and the way his character was handled in the movie.

That was a quote that was taken out of context by the fans who didn't like the movie as some kind of proof that it was bad and that everyone else should cry about it as much as they continue to do.

I enjoyed the film and will be happy to add it to my collection. I saw it twice in the theater and the second time made me appreciate it more (though I did enjoy it on the first viewing). Yes, there are things I don't like about it, but overall, it's good. I believe it will be appreciated much more as time passes.

Mark Hamill did not like the direction of Luke in TLJ, and said so in an interview. It wasn't a dig at the movie(which he thought was great) just his own idea of where the character should have gone.
Later he apologized for making the statement.

I wish actors would not do this, I'm still hurt by Harrison Ford hating on Han Solo calling him "dumb"....and that was in the OT I mean, it's Han Solo, how can he not be pleased with that character?

Yes, he disagreed with the direction early on but some fans have cherry picked Hamill's "He's not my Luke Skywalker" line from an interview and present it as 'evidence' that the movie is bad while also deliberately not acknowledging the other overwhelmingly positive comments that he has said about the movie. Acting as if #notmyLukeSkywalker is Hamill's final word on the movie is just disingenuous on the part of those people.

I wouldn't call Han dumb either. He's not a genius and he's playing alot of situations by ear but Han's definitely got street smarts.

Yeah, that is sort of sad. Anyone that needs "evidence" to prove to other people that a movie is bad....well I feel bad for them.
Let people make up their own mind what they like, or not.

Just got my Target "your order is ready for pickup" email. Gonna swing by the store on my walk in to work. Then 8 hours of terrible waiting as I have this 4K disc in my possession but won't be able to watch it. This is going to be one of the slowest work days in recent memory...

I used the same method and just got back from Target with my 4K prize that I'll try to watch sometime this week.

Saw this in the theater. The visuals were unbelievably good but some of the film felt a bit rushed. I still think the del Toro character was unnecessary as well as the whole venture to the casino resort. I also wasn't too keen on Skywalker's portrayal. It seemed to stray too far from his character development in the original films. I'm passing on picking up anymore Star Wars films. I'll see them in the theater but that's about it.

There may be another thread for this topic. If there is let me know. I'm looking for a thread which compares the various versions of today's TLJ release. Seems like Best Buy has a metal box. Target has a mini Art of TLJ book and a Porg featurette. Not sure what Amazon has if anything. I'm looking for a version which includes both a Blu Ray and DVD and as many extras (Trailers, Deleted Scenes, Behind the Scenes stuff, gag reel etc)
Don't need 3D or 4K or a Digital Copy. What does the collective recommend as the best option? Thanks! MTFBWY
