    If only we'd gotten that time travel plot with the Palpatine worshipping instead of the movie we actually got.

    A man can dream though. A man can dream.

      JJ Abrams "very good at pacing" didn''t pan out, did it?

          that stupid fucking time travel plot would have unironically been better than what we got

              Sigh...these ideas are all 100x better than what Disney put into this movie!

                    Star Wars is dead to me..... Red Letter Media killed it

                      And somehow the time travel plot would have made more sense....

                        7:17 This was the most accurate prediction about the movie.

                              Damn you for pitching a far superior film about Palpatine's Ewok death cult.

                                They were so innocent. They didnt even predict the 10,000 star destroys coming out of the ground from a mystery red plasma planet universe with snokes bros in an aquarium hidden in a lightning giant statue land with palpy on strings

                                  I can't believe Mike's terrible awful theory had fewer plot holes than the actual movie.

                                    Rey's story arc was with Kylo. They could have fought at the end. Luke's story arc involved The Emporer, and they could have fought at the end. That wouldn't have taken away from Rey. The movie actually takes away from Luke.

                                      Mike's impression of Palpatine is fucking great.

                                        Holy shit did Rich's laugh turn into the Emperor's cackle at 19:24 or is that just a subversion of my expectations

                                          Mike's time theory would've been so much more exciting.

                                            It's sad because the predictions about Luke coming back and beating Palpatine is better than what actually happened

                                              but how would Rey, the most adored and cared-about protagonist in all of cinematic history, not save the day?

                                            so in retrospective, ANY of your theorires turned out to be way too smart for disney. Sorry guys but if you want to think like JJ, you have to be really shitfaced when you do these prediction videos.

                                              I come back to this video for that moment at 7.15
                                              Should be required watching for actors who want to know how to portray that moment when someone realises, and must come to terms, with a great and horrible truth.
                                              The zoom in. The dramatic paper fold. The sheer range of emotions processed and portrayed in those two short lines.

                                                It is amazing that Mike points out all of the things that are back from the past for no reason therefore it must be time travel. But no... it was a force even greater than Time Travel.... Nostalgic Marketing...

                                                    It still BLOWS my mind that there was no plan. How do you spend 4 billion dollars and then just wing it?

                                                      The sad part is the fan base STILL WATCHES! Rise of Skywalker is close to breaking 1 billion world wide after less than a month. Why bother having a plan when you can make billions winging it? Fans still see these things four or five times because "ma childhood!". Disney isn't looking to create art or a lasting legacy, they are looking to recoup that 4 billions as quickly as possible.

                                                      Frankly, I would have much rather seen the time travel idea Mike had.

Mike Stocklasa recommended JJ Abrams in his viral Plinkett videos, which would have caught the attention of Disney executives at Lucas Film, convincing them to hire JJ Abrams for the the Force awakens.

                                                                            We know that Rian Johnson watched Red Letter Media, and very likely saw the subsequent Plinkett material and RLM content about The Force Awakens. Red Letter Media’s criticism of The Force Awakens as a fan-serviced, soft reboot must have influenced Rian Johnson’s decision to subvert expectations. In the Plinkett review of the Last Jedi, Plinkett refers to Rian as his son.

                                                                            Finally with the Rise of Skywalker JJ Abrams attempts to correct the wrongs of Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi by any means necessary or possible. JayBauman’s observation that the Last Jedi disregards all that proceeds it in the previous movie and that the Rise of Skywalker largely does the same highlights the lack of cohesion of the sequel trilogy.

                                                                            I’m sure some people love the Sequel Trilogy and I think those people have a lot to thank Red Letter Media for. Having said that Mike Stocklasa and Red Letter Media had no direct influence over Lucas Film or Disney whatsoever. Disney and Lucas Film made those creative decisions by themselves.

                                                                            • skeletorrobo
