Star Wars: The Last Jedi has already become one of the most controversial movies for the Star Wars fandom. Unlike the original trilogy or the prequels, there appears to be no common consensus on the movies quality. I decided to investigate to determine how Oratory feels about the The Last Jedi. All the information below was found by sending a poll to the student of OP, resulting in over 120 submissions.

Firstly, there are some points of interest that affect whether or not one enjoyed the movie. For example, 90% of those who liked The Force Awakens enjoyed The Last Jedi while those who disliked Episode VII generally disliked the film. It was also found that hardcore fans loved the movie more than those who consider themselves casual fan. Overall, The Last Jedi is has a lower approval rating; 64% of student like The Force Awakens while only 52% enjoyed The Last Jedi. However, that still crushed the 23% of those who disliked both movies.

There are some elements of The Last Jedi that seem universally agreed upon. The actions scenes in particular are a favorite with 85% approval rating. The light jump scene with Holdo similarly got 70% despite the plot-holes that may be created from it. However, the most hated scene by far was Leia using The Force to return to the ship alive. Many saw this as an opportunity to kill of Leia as to avoid complications with Carrie Fisher’s death.

The plot twists (which are being ridiculed online) are fairly even at Oratory. Only 55% of students enjoyed Snoke’s death, which is only about a three vote difference between love and hate. Meanwhile, the reveal of Rey’s parents – “nobodies” who sold her for alcohol – was disliked by 66%.

By far, the most hated elements of The Last Jedi nearly all stem from Finn and Rose’s story arc. 56% of people disliked Canto Bight (the casino planet they visited) and another 56% thought that Finn should have died instead of being saved by Rose. An overwhelming 80% hated Rose, with one student even commented that Rose was worse than the infamous Jar Jar Binks.

Despite the mixed feelings for The Last Jedi, people are still excited about Episode IX. Almost 75% of OP students have hopes that the next Star Wars movie will be good. Finally, the most important question of all: Are porgs great or horrible? The answer is (apparently) amazing. 64% of people liked porgs.
