What Comes After Star Wars? (Off-Topic)

Luke catching the saber is fine on it's own, but it is so clearly also winking at the audience and saying "Fuck that scene in The Last Jedi."

All they had to do was not give him that stupid line, and it would have been fine, would have actually fit with the themes of The Last Jedi, but JJ spent a lot of this movie trying to "fix" shit that didn't need to be fixed.

I think he mostly did a pretty good job following The Last Jedi and wrapping up the trilogy, but he also definitely got his jabs in, often in the dumbest way possible. It's a shame, because there's actually a really great movie hidden in there.
