I didn't laugh at any of the somewhat forced comedy in TLJ, but that had nothing to do with my walking away thinking the film was a bit meh for the most part. As said above all the Star Wars films have some cringe comedy moments, (however, Leia asking Han "Should I get out and push?" when the Falcon breaks down again in Empire does always raise a smile), I don't know why some douche on YT feels TLJ should be singled out for its comedy. It's certainly not the worst element by a long stretch.
I laughed at the jokes. The tone was new for the franchise but it I enjoyed its addition. It was a new take.
Like I said I find it baffling. I take no joy in that, I didn't go in thinking "I really hope I don't like things in this" but some of the humour made my skin crawl. The prank call bit was absolutely shocking.

I don't agree what the scenes he used to demonstrate the poor use of comedy but he is correct. I can understand that the comedy might not run your enjoyment of the film but I genuinely find it baffling that anyone argues that it's actually good.
I despise these kind of videos. Despise.
The clickbait titles are what does it for me, plus the fact YT seems to think i give a gooseberry fool so all i see in my feed is "the MURDER of destiny 2", "how comedy KILLED star wars", "the DEATH, RAPE, AND DEFILEMENT OF THE STILL WARM CORPSE OF DESTINY 2", or strawberry floating whatever. All it amounts to is some strawberry floating internet loser telling you "this is why you shouldnt enjoy something you like". strawberry float off. Every star wars movie has lame attempts at humour. Like go watch any of the original movies. Theres some pretty cringeworthy dialogue in all of them. But because theres some in TLJ it warrants an hour long dissection of exactly why some bad humour DESTROYS STAR WARS TO DEATH. I found some of the attempts at comedy fell flat but it didnt MURDER star wars. These strawberry floating cheeto eating strawberry floats. Jesus strawberry float i hate the god damn internet.
I totally agree about these type of videos in general but the jist of what he says is correct.
I'm confused as to how that would've tied into the rest of the series. I guess I need to know more, like what's the backdrop to all this? Are we looking at the Guardians of the Whills as the new Jedi? Hundred Eyes with a lightsaber? What's going on with our old friends from the OT? Stuff like that. Both original trilogies had a clear story progression to them, so this presumably would have linked perfectly with those.
