A fan edit of Star Wars - The Last Jedi - (2017 movie). It's actually quite good, though its ending is incomplete.

Supergirl is super, and something about the last of the fleet that isn't the last, and shit characters and shit writing.

The earlier movies are mandatory for this. If you thought the earlier movies were shit, then this is the nail in the coffin. Just let the franchise die.

  • Properly titled Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.

This goes back in time to the original finding of the stargate, and stars a character we all know lives and so cannot be in any danger at all ever.

This just comes across like short-episode fan fiction.

A small research vessel is knocked down by a meteor shower, triggering a panicked military response and causing hundreds of civilian casualties.

An endearing and distracting movie. Recommended, even though the dubbing is exaggerated and loud.

An alternate energy generator is invented, and a test pilot goes through as a fail-safe.

It might have been good, but the perspective was awful and it amplified already-poor writing. The secondary perspective of hopping around in time was aggravating.

Young adults go on a vacation on Labor Day weekend, but their neighbor has an abduction story.

Overall a decent enough movie with a weak ending. It could have had a lot more subtlety and explanation woven throughout to create a more complete movie-universe.

Supergirl supers superly.

Oh my god this is trash from every angle. Bad writing, bad acting, bad .. just bad everything everywhere always. It has no high points. Disney can suck a dick.
