    So, I'm sure you heard that there's a new Star Wars movie out now. People are very conflicted over it. Some love it, some hate it. Some say that people hate it because their personal fantasy about it didn't come true. Others say that there's not a concrete reason why some people hate it.

    I say they're both wrong. I say that people are hating on it because it was only... Almost A Star Wars Movie. So I want to see what YOU think. What I want you to post is a part of The Last Jedi that you thought made it Almost A Star Wars Movie. How was it not a Star Wars movie to YOU personally?

    Here, let me give you some examples:

    - We Almost got to see a Lightsaber Duel
    Or
    - It was Almost a script Mark Hamill agreed with
    Or
    - Those jokes were Almost funny

    Let's really see if there's concrete evidence why people didn't like it or if it had anything to do with people's personal fantasy or pet theory about what was going to happen. I'll add more as I think of them. And you don't have to use "Almost" if you don't want to. But that makes it more fun.

    There's no real winner here. Especially if you felt disappointed. Go ahead. Let it out.

    Nobody?


    Here's a few more:


    - There was Almost an exciting chase through space
    - Somebody Almost sensed a disturbance in the Force
    - We Almost got dialog that fit the Star Wars universe
    - That Almost looked and moved like Yoda
    - Supreme Leader Snoke Almost foresaw that coming
    - Two people Almost said "May the Force be with you" to each other
    - We Almost heard someone say "I have a bad feeling about this"
    - We Almost found out that Rey's parents were important
    - Those Almost weren't the Droids we were looking for
    - It was Almost the Star Wars Holiday Special
    - Rian Johnson Almost deserves an Academy award
    - Let's hope JJ Abrams doesn't Almost make a Star Wars movie with the next one

    I'm up to 15 and yet... nobody else?

    Movie's been out a week and plenty of us enjoyed it. Are you surprised the masses aren't jumping on board the hate train?


    Lets enjoy the honeymoon a little longer before we start complaining about the burnt toast.

    The movie handily sucked. There aren't any 'almosts' about it.
