The Last Jedi

As I posted about "The Force Awakens" I might as well quickly post my review of "The Last Jedi". I've seen all of the Star Wars films including the brilliant "Rogue One". I understand loads of fans hate "The Last Jedi" but I didn't hate it, I just didn't like it. I will give my review. SPOILERS
The visuals, special effects, scenic views, are fantastic. I don’t think there was enough of Luke and I wasn’t too keen on the way he was in this, being so grumpy and reclusive like that.
I didn’t like the character Rose as she was too boring and I much preferred her heroic sister who died earlier on. 
I’ve lost interest in Poe in “The Last Jedi” as he was so fired up all of the time, eager to bombs things and shoot at things.
I didn’t like General Hux and they could’ve given him an evil alien look. There were far too many humans in this one and not enough aliens. 
Sorry but I don’t think Kylo Ren is a very good evil bad guy. He’s like a boy having tantrums and is just rebelling against his dad all the time. Even though he killed his dad, which was upsetting. He should never have taken his helmet off. As soon as he removed his helmet in “The Force Awakens” he stopped being scary. It could be because of his face and hair. He just looks like someone you would find in a University and working at MacDonalds to get by. 
Snoke... not sure what to say about this evil one. He died very easily.
Princess Leia now general Leia doesn’t come across as very strong in this. She’s more like a tired mum than a tough princess in charge as she used to be in the earlier Star Wars movies from the 80’s. It doesn’t make sense that she flew back to the spaceship after being blasted out into space. It looked so ridiculous and 1960’s fantasy thing like Mary Poppins. The film made a joke of Leia in this particular film, which is sad really because Princess Leia was once a golden girl and now she’s a laughing stock. It’s also pretty bad taste imho because the actress Carrie Fisher died. 
I still like Finn, BB8, C 3PO, Chewbacca and R2D2. 
I don’t believe that Rey’s parents were nobodies. Anakin Skywalker’s background was basically ordinary too, I’m not saying anything is wrong with a Jedi coming from just poor people and normal citizens but the film had her built up as if she was a goddess, but she’s only mortal. So disappointed that she's just too Jedi without training.
I just love the crystal foxes and when they move, you can hear them shimmer. They were only in this film for a small bit. The sweet horselike fathiers at the casino world are just cool. I love the very cute Porgs but they're something for the kids. There are many other creatures and aliens in the film that are worthy of looking into so I put some links to those at the end of this post. The casino world looked cool but the aliens and people all resembled the way Earthlings dress far too much. But it was amusing to see these aliens wearing tuxedos and cocktail dresses. The scene there with Finn and Rose was all about rescueing the fathiers. 
The fight scenes were anti-climatic and bland.
Overall I rate this film a 4 out of 10.
