Star Wars: The Last Jedi Gets The Honest Trailers Treatment

Contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Maybe we can all finally stop debating whether or not Star Wars: The Last Jedi is brilliant or blasphemous. 

The folks at Screen Junkies have released the Honest Trailers take on Rian Johnson's divisive Star Wars installment, and they typically say what we're all thinking. However, as the video reveals, it's really difficult to find two people who actually agree on this movie. 

"Forget the love letter to the originals that was The Force Awakens," says narrator John Bailey. "Because Episode VIII subverts everything you've come to expect." 

But there are polarized viewpoints about that, even at Honest Trailers. Using the same trick they used in the video for The Force Awakens, Bailey is joined by former narrator Gannon Nickell, who represents the thoroughly disappointed fans who will never get over how Johnson changed the Star Wars mythology for a movie that "spits in the face of everything you once loved." Meanwhile, Bailey takes the stance that The Last Jedi is a "refreshing update to a predictable formula" that opens up the galaxy to endless possibilities.

Still, they both agree on some things: they both loved the battle between Rey (Daisy Ridley), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Snoke's praetorian guards; they both enjoyed the reunion of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Yoda; and they're both pro-Porg. 

But, according to the video, it all basically comes down to this: "Either Rian Johnson doesn't understand the lore, or he made the first Star Wars movie that lives up to the values it preaches instead of endorsing royal bloodlines and reckless aggression." 

It's up to you to decide which side is calling to you the same way Luke's lightsaber, the Jedi texts and "a big, wet hole" call to Rey.
