I wouldn't say it was lost, I just didn't feel it was as out front as a kiss would lead you to believe.
But, and this has come up in Discord before, I'm also notoriously bad at reading signals. So there's that.
Sorry @CB there was TONS of sexual chemistry between these two characters. It was particularly rampant in The Last Jedi
CB: I have no idea when women are flirting with me. It has to be super overt.
Also CB: There was no flirting in Star Wars and no reason to kiss.
Hey! I saw it with Tess, and she agreed that the kiss felt out of place. It wasn't just me!
What no one else saw was that force babby that Ben put inside Rey. It wasn't just healing power!
He didn't have to use the force, he kissed her. That's how you get pregnant, right?
I, too, thought the kiss was unnecessary to tell the story. Although from the shout of "GET IT, GIRL!" punctuating the awkward silence from the other side of the theater, I guess it has its fans.
I enjoyed a lot of the aspects of this movie regardless. The focus on Chewbacca and C3PO, and the return of Lando were all heartwarming.
The little cone-headed wheeled robot really didn't make any sense to me. Beyond potential merchandising, can anyone explain what was the point of that thing being added at all? It seems that so much ground needed to be covered by this movie that the robot could have been skipped in favor of more actual plot development.
How dare you slander actual shwaipbot
That bot was one of my favorite parts of the film.
NO, THANK YOU
That bot was Rocky. They plagiarized Rocky and made him a robot.
First of all his name is D-O
Past that he was the link between Rey's parents obduction and the current timeline. We know that Palpatine wanted Rey alive because of him which could be taken as Palpatine using Kylo Ben to get to Rey the whole time.
I always felt the relationship between Rey and Kylo was abusive as hell so the idea of Kylo redemption or romance was inherently a no-go for me.
"ok boomer?" 😂
So as I'm watching this clip, the "OK Boomer?" part comes on and my phone activates, thinking someone said "OK Google" to it.
I thought it was super disappointing.
Zombie palpatine, Rey being related to him, the zombie star destoryer fleet and the star destroyer with a "death star" type weapon..
This is seriously the worst movie of the series....
