Star Wars Fans Actually Agree On One Thing: This Was the Dumbest Moment Of the Entire Series
For a few of you, watching The Rise of Skywalker in theaters in all probability looks like a fuzzy, far-off quarantine dream. Cheering on the dum-dum-dum-dummmmm, welcoming again Rey and the brand new trilogy crew, then questioning precisely what within the hell was happening the remainder of the time.
Particularly, you understand, the MacGuffin that drives the entire rattling film ahead: A Sith dagger, inscribed with the Google Maps instructions to Exegol, the place grampy Palps and his Fans are ready. With out a lot Star Wars information these days, Fans on Reddit (a bunch that has a historical past of fixed divisiveness so long as the franchise itself) have united in roasting one dumb, shining Moment of idiocy in The Rise of Skywalker. It’s when Rey holds up the knife to a close-by mountain vary, realizing that, holy shit, the grooves on the dagger match up juuust proper with the mountain’s peaks and curves.
Eh… sort of. Not likely. When you take a look at the borderline pained-looking, OMGeee faces Rey and her crew are making, you’d suppose that the dagger and the mountains are such an ideal match that the credit have been about to roll. And that’s not likely the case. You’d should match them up from the right distance, on the good angle, certainly, to even discover the vaguest resemblance. In all probability not the most effective use of an historical Sith Artifact—a type of janky items in a jigsaw puzzle that doesn’t actually match anyplace.
Since one Reddit person, DaTruestEva, pointed this out two weeks in the past within the Star Wars subreddit, the submit has almost 78,000 upvotes, with just about unanimously approving feedback. “If that they had executed one thing cooler with the dagger, then nice, But it actually relied upon the loss of life star ruins current within the form of its little tape measure,” reads the highest remark. “The Goonies did this half higher,” reads one other. Certain, Fans have complained about this clunky story machine—together with the unimaginative, lazy writing—earlier than. But with nothing significantly better to do proper now than ruminate on the newest film, Fans appear to have discovered widespread floor on this one, baffling scene.
It’s a bit of shocking that the Sith butter knife is the fan-unifying Moment in The Rise of Skywalker, although. There have been so many different contenders for the dumbest dumb Moment crown! You’ve Rey’s Pressure oopsie, the one that just about incinerated poor Chewy. The entire enterprise about The Rise of Skywalker’s crusty grampy Palpatine not likely being Palpatine, But a Palpatine clone. As one person identified, Palpatine’s voice memo that was broadcast on Fortnite. And an ending that did a disservice to the brand new trilogy’s central feminine hero.
Actually, that is all one giant case for LucasFilm to greenlight the Child Yoda Saga: A nine-movie-long Series, every operating about two hours, composed fully of Child Yoda peeking behind corners and antagonizing the large area folks. I’d give Disney Plus my life’s financial savings for even a 10-minute take a look at that one.
