Guys Coco is fucking fantastic. I'm debating whether it or Up is my favorite Pixar movie. It's that good.

I heard Disney finally pulled the horrid 20 minute Frozen short at the beginning (I haven't seen it yet but that was seriously putting me off).

The short was fine, but it shouldn't have been before it if it was that long. It was the kind I could see today's kids watching 20 years later as a Christmas tradition though.

Now that I've had enough time to think about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, this is without a doubt my favorite in the series since Empire. I didn't expect them to go in a lot of directions they did and it feels like a deconstruction, kind of similar to Kotor 2 actually. There's some bad elements, don't get me wrong, the humor felt like it should be in a Marvel movie rather than Star Wars, those bird things are pointless and basically just Minions rip offs to make cash, and there's one scene that's stupid on so many levels (without spoiling too much, it'll remind you of Superman). But those gripes aside, while I need to rewatch them both first, this might even be up there with A New Hope. It's that good IMO.

I'm feeling the same way right now. Some plot holes, weird scenes, and annoying merchandising pushes, but the good definitely outweighs the bad.
spoiler wars revenge of the spoil:
I also loved how they handled the old characters. From what we've seen in Empire and the prequels, this is the most complete version of Yoda IMO.

The Spoiler Strikes Back:
I agree with that. Luke messing up his effort to rebuild the Jedi makes perfect sense when Obi Wan and Yoda gave him so little training. Thought they handled him contemplating killing Kylo well, he had a brief moment of weakness that ended up ruining everything. It's sad we won't see what direction they were gonna go with for Leia though, think that scene with her in space (as stupid as it was) might have been a bit of foreshadowing that they were planning to have her teach Rey to use the Force, just with a different philosophy than the Jedi.

As for how they handled the new characters, I feel Kylo, Poe, and Rey definitely got the better end of things than Finn and Rose. Unlike a lot of people I actually liked how their whole thing was kind of pointless to the plot since it shows how these plans everyone keeps pulling out of their ass and putting everyone in danger aren't always going to work. It was an interesting subversion, but Finn should have had some way for him to contribute more. I wasn't a fan of Rose keeping him from sacrificing himself either even if the reasoning behind it was a good sentiment. Just felt like the wrong place for that, think it would have worked better if she knew they'd be able to fire before he crashed into it. But their diversion in Space Vegas didn't really bother me since thematically it was to set up that it's where they'll begin to train a new generation of Force users.

But the other three were great. I liked Poe's arc and cockiness and was even fine with the purple haired woman not telling the plan him since it kind of gave me a vibe she was trying to keep teaching him like Leia but wasn't a strong leader like her. And when she didn't say anything in the mutiny, I kind of interpreted it as a small part of her wanting him to succeed and only stopping it when she realized he was too late. Kylo's arc was my favorite though, love the idea that he's going to lead The First Order from now on and doesn't care about the Sith. He's clearly too hotheaded to lead so it's a great setup for Episode IX. And love how Rey's parents were just a couple of selfish drunks. She's not someone special because of her birthright, she made herself special like Anakin.

I'm on the other side. I disliked it. I LIKED a lot of the ideas on paper but I hated the execution. Weird editing, bad pacing, some really awkard dialogue, characters making baffling illogical choices, out of place humor. For me, the bad outweighed the good.

See I get that. This is a really divisive movie for a reason and a lot of stuff won't go over well for so many people. I remember quite a few scenes I was fine with or even enjoyed but thought "A lot of people are gonna HATE that"

Yeah, it's a bizarre movie in that the reaction has been like that dress that no one could agree on the color with. It's like we (the collective 'we') watched two different movies.
