Re: I saw it twice when it was new and haven't seen it since.
I wanted to like VIII, but after 3 watches, it got progressively worse each time. Basically I hate it because all of its good ideas are half-assed and wasted over 2.5 hours. And for all people bitch that "Force Awakens" recycles the plot of "A New Hope", no one seems to notice "The Last Jedi" has the same basic set-up as "Empire". Best of all, it's still a masterpiece compared to the mind-numbing "#### you" that is "Rise of Skywalker".
