It’s the one big question that lingers from this weekend. What do we make of Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Is is brilliant? Is it a disaster? Is it, somehow, a little bit of both? The Star Wars community can’t stop talking about this—and neither, for the record, can io9. The staffers have been debating this movie all Monday, and I imagine we’re going to keep talking about it for days and weeks to come.


That’s why io9 staff writer Beth Elderkin, managing editor Jill Pantozzi, and Gizmodo social media editor Joe Tonelli have decided to chat about whether the Force is strong or weak with The Last Jedi. Check out the livestream below.

Forget Rey and Kylo or Poe and Holdo. Let’s talk Finn. I think he was really underutilized. which bums me out because John Boyega is amazing. His plot line was kind of weak. And I’m not sure how I feel about the love triangle.

AND here’s a hot take:

John Boyega is better looking than Oscar Isaacs and Adam Driver. Kylo Ren looks weird buff and wears bad pants.
