[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
TLJ begins with The First Order attacking the Resistance’s headquarters on D’Quar. Poe disobeys Leia’s orders and leads an assault on General Hux’s star destroyer while the Resistance command flees into hyperspace. Meanwhile, in Ahch-To, Rey finds Luke and wants him to join the Resistance and train her. He refuses, but Rey is determined to persuade him.

Aboard the Supremacy, Supreme Leader Snoke reprimands Kylo Ren for the destruction of Starkiller Base. The First Order tracks the Resistance through hyperspace and Kylo leads a second attack. Leia is presumed dead alongside the other Resistance commanders, but survives as she reaches out in space as she starts to freeze over using The Force. Finn awakens during the battle and attempts to flee, but is stopped by mechanic Rose Tico. Her sister Paige was a pilot and died in the first assault.

Vice-Admiral Amilyn Holdo takes over the Resistance and reprimands Poe, who doesn’t trust her. The Resistance doesn’t have enough fuel for another hyperspace jump and settles into an abandoned rebel outpost on Crait. Finn and Rose devise a plan to locate the First Order’s hyperspace tracker so they can destroy it. Maz Kanata directs them to the Master Codebreaker for help, who can be found at Canto Bight, but they are arrested for trespassing and befriend a slicer, DJ, who agrees to help them. They escape on stolen horse-like creatures and befriend the stable boy who looks after them.

Rey senses the Force calling her to the cave where Luke keeps the sacred Jedi scrolls. Luke realizes that she is strong with the Force and begrudgingly decides to train her. Rey is connected with Kylo through the Force, and they can communicate telepathically. Rey finds out that Luke attempted to kill Kylo in his sleep when he sensed that Snoke was influencing Kylo. Kylo overpowered Luke and destroyed Luke’s Jedi Academy in a fit of rage.

Rey abandons Luke and leaves to meet Kylo, but he captures her and presents her to Snoke. He reveals that he created their connection in order to manipulate both, but Kylo doesn’t believe it. Snoke is strong with the dark side and orders Kylo to kill Rey, but he instead kills Snoke. Kylo and Rey then fight Snoke’s guards together.

Elsewhere the First Order is preparing an attack on Crait. DJ helps Finn and Rose infiltrate their ship, but betrays them. Finn and Rose are captured and tortured by Phasma. Before they are executed, Holdo kamikazes the Resistance’s ship into the First Order’s ship. Finn escapes and defeats Phasma in combat. She dies in an explosion.

Finn and Rose steal a ship and reunite with the Resistance. Meanwhile, Kylo seizes command of the First Order. Rey had a vision of him returning to the light, while Kylo had a vision of her falling to the dark. He tries to tempt her by revealing that her parents were random junk traders who sold her off, that she is meaningless to everyone but him and that they can rule the galaxy together, but Rey refuses and escapes in the Millennium Falcon with Chewie.

Back in Ahch-To, Luke is visited by the Force ghost of Yoda, who tells him that Rey is their only hope for a better future and Luke should leave the past behind. Yoda causes a lightning strike that destroys the sacred Jedi scrolls.

Kylo forces Hux to accept his leadership and prepares to destroy the Resistance with a massive cannon. Finn steals a ship and attempts to sacrifice himself to destroy it, but Rose knocks his ship off-course and does it instead. Finn pulls her out of the wreckage, she says she loves him, kisses him and then dies/goes into a coma.

Kylo orders another attack on the base when Luke shows up and repels the First Order. Kylo fights Luke, only to realize he’s an astral projection and that the real Luke is back in Ahch-To. It was all a ruse so Rey could evacuate the few surviving Resistance fighters, including Finn, Poe and Leia, into the Millennium Falcon and escape.

In Ahch-To, Luke stumbles outside his hut and dies while watching the sunrise. He vanishes becoming one with the Force. Both Rey and Leia sense that he's gone/died.

Kylo tries to communicate with Rey but she ignores him.

Poe reassures the survivors that there is still hope. Cut to the stable boy in Canto Bight who was told about the ideals of the Resistance by Rose, using the Force to call for his broom. There is a New Hope.

A recent screening did not go well...

Soundtrack fails at 'The Last Jedi' screening and chaos erupts in Burbank theater

When a Burbank theater’s sound system failed during the opening night screening of “The Last Jedi,” outraged fans — some in costume — stormed the theater lobby Thursday, prompting a response by police.

The chaos was captured on video by Lynly Ehrlich, who had taken the day off from work and dressed up as film character Rey (complete with staff) before heading to the 9:45 p.m. showing of the new “Star Wars” film at the AMC Burbank 16 with her husband.

The story is now getting picked up by other media sites

Fans Almost Rioted at One 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Screening

In a video posted to YouTube, you can hear some fan screaming, “Reeeestart it!” and another, “Restart the fucking movie!” When the staff said they couldn’t restart the film, the demand rose to an angry chant, and the staff actually had to call the police to handle the situation.

I really enjoyed the scene near the end of the movie when Gandalf returned and piloted the Enterprise on a one-way mission into the heart of Hogwarts to battle the Xenomorphs only to be saved at the last minute by The Doctor. Fucking epic!

Unlike Zechs, I was sober.

I liked it.

No riot, but the theater is in the same buidling as a Dave & Buster. There was some fire alarm at the D&B and that made the alarm go off in our theater. Then the movie paused (right in the middle of the battle on Crait). Everyone yelled "are you kidding me?!". Luckily for me, I had to pee, so I ran to the toilet and got back before they started it back up again.
