Poe joke at the start of TLJ? The other attempts of comedy in the same movie? Rose Tico´arc in TROS? Finn´s entire arc in the trilogy?

Tell your own.

Good list, but I think Snoke was handled very poorly. Not built up enough in TFA, killed too easily in TLJ, the whole Snoke/Palpatine thing in TROS.

oh yeah i forgot bout how lame was everything in Canto Bight, how lame was fucking phasma and the knights of ren....that scene with Hux doing Hitler jesus so fucking lame.

Both c3po and chewie´s fake deaths were sooooooo embarrassing...they lasted for like 2 seconds.

Maz is the lamest new character i would say...it was so awful even those guys knew it and forgot about it.

You guys are just making long lists of things you didn't like. Most of those aren't truly embarrassing. They're just decisions you wouldn't have made.

TFA: Chewy not hugging Leia.
TLJ: Leia's space walk was up there. But honestly, I don't think we're owed an apology for anything in this movie.
TROS: No one gives a shit that C3PO's gonna die. Finn leads liberated Stormtoopers on a mission to kill more Stormtroopers.

I don't know if its embarrassing but not having the the OT cast have a scene together seems like a mistake to me but I guess the point was to kill the past. Modern franchise building is tearing down the legacy characters to build up the avatars I mean characters that the new stewards of the franchise created. It's not just Star Wars. I can't wait to watch the new LOTR show and see some new character stop Elrond from helping Sauron or some shit.

I picked the most egregious, apology-needed moments from each film in a thread where the average list length is 13 items.

Embarrassing to who, exactly?

Why would the viewer need to be embarrassed about anything in them? Sure, stuff they don’t like, but embarrassed? The viewer didn’t make the movies.

I guess that's up to who's posting.

I put up things that I thought the filmmakers should be embarrassed about, but it could certainly be things that make you embarrassed to be a Star Wars fan.

I wonder how Boyega and Kelly Marie Tran felt about their characters on the third sequel.

I'll go with "embarrassing" as making me kinda cringe while watching the movie

TFA: Starkiller briefing at rebel base. Great...another death star

TLJ: Leia flying in space. War discussion between Rose and Finn on Canto Bight. Kid at end of TLJ

TROS: Palpatine is the main embarrassment, but this whole movie is embarrassing

The main things for me were:

Chewie's "death"
Palpatine
Poe's jokes
another Death Star
introducing interesting characters that went nowhere. Phasma, Knights of Ren, DJ, Zorii Bliss, Snoke (lol awful arc)

And then of course the lack of flow between the movies

Ok, in that context, you kinda make sense. But these are still just lists of things people don’t like about them.

And never be embarrassed about stuff you like. If YOU like it, that’s all that matters. Fuck what other people think.

I personally don’t feel embarassed about liking Star Wars or these movies. I seldom feel embarassed on my own behalf at all.

Still I think it’s fair to say there were embarassing things in these movies. It’s not about simply not liking this or that, but about those things being that bad.
