Added DiffLines:

** Averted when the ''Millennium Falcon'' drops off Rey in the pod, it drops out of hyperspace quite a bit of a ways off the Z-axis relative to the ongoing chase with the Resistance, and it "descends" to the ''Supremacy''.

Added DiffLines:

** When Finn and Rose get thrown into jail on Canto Bight for parking illegally, the police claim that they've violated "Parking Law 27-B-stroke-6". In Creator/TerryGilliam's ''Film/{{Brazil}}'', "27-B-stroke-6" was a government form that was frequently mentioned as a RunningGag.


* TheDreadedDreadnought: The ''Fulminatrix'', a ''Mandator-IV''-class Seige Dreadnought. Poe describes it as a "fleet killer," and considers losing almost his entire fighter complement to destroy it WorthIt. Leia disagrees.

** The ''Supremacy'', a ''Mega''-class Star Dreadnought that measures ''60 kilometers'' from wingtip to wingtip. It takes a lightspeed ramming by the ''Raddus'' to stop this behemoth.


** While TFA showed the stormtroopers as having more individuality and humanity than in the Original Trilogy, victims who didn't choose this life for themselves, the developments with Finn are ignored and they're back to being cannon fodder with poor aim.
** The movie tries to argue against SenselessSacrifice and last stands but still glorifies the sacrifice of Rose Tico's sister at the opening, and Admiral Holdo's lightspeed suicide ramming while Rose tries to sacrifice herself to stop Finn from sacrifing himself to buy the Rebels more time from the First Order's canon.

Added DiffLines:

** Poe is a dashing pilot, but he's a dashing maverick pilot who just sacrificed their entire bomber compliment to destroy what at the time was an unnecessary objective, and he disobeyed orders to do so. For obvious reasons, Holdo does not trust him.

* SacredScripture: Luke keeps the Jedi's ancient texts in a sacred tree on Ahch-To. Yoda mocks their continued importance and [[ShockAndAwe calls down lightning]] to burn down the tree with the texts in it. He even dryly comments that they were hardly page-turners and notes that at the end of the day they're just a "pile of old books." It turns out, though, that Rey had already stolen the books and has them with her at the end of the movie.

* AstralProjection: In what is probably the most impressive Force feat in all the movies, Luke projects himself from ''across the galaxy'' to make amends with Leia and face down the First Order.

* AstralProjection: AstralProjection:
** A recurring component in the movie is a "Force Bond" between Rey and Kylo Ren that allows them to appear before each other and talk despite being in entirely different parts of the galaxy.

In what is probably the most impressive Force feat in all the movies, Luke projects himself from ''across the galaxy'' to the planet Crait while physically remaining in his hovel at the edge of known space to make amends with Leia and face down the First Order.



* MentalSpaceTravel: A recurring component in the movie is a "Force Bond" between Rey and Kylo Ren that allows them to appear before each other and talk despite being in entirely different parts of the galaxy. A similar technique to this is exploited later, when Luke uses AstralProjection to come to the planet Crait while physically remaining in his hovel at the edge of known space.


* BigDamnHeroes: The ''Millennium Falcon'', twice.
** First as a SurpriseVehicle to pick up Finn and Rose on Canto Bight.
** Later, it comes to Rose's aid on Crait when she is tailed by three TIE fighters.

** It should be pointed out that, in languages with more inflection than English, the title is translated as a plural: ''The (multiple) Last Jedi''.



* RealityIsUnrealistic: A lot of people criticized a scene where Leia is sucked out into the vacuum of space, uses the Force to pull herself back inside, and seems to suffer no lasting harm. NASA tests on rapid decompression to vacuum in the 1960s, however, had a ''100% survival'' and ''full recovery'' for up to two minutes of exposure once the subjects were repressurized, and Leia was only out there for about one minute fifty seconds.

** There are quite a few clues that point to Luke not being physically present on Crait. For one, he ignites his ''blue'' lightsaber, but Rey took that with her, and it was broken in her tug-of-war with Kylo. His beard and haircut are noticeably different, and in fact match the earlier flashbacks with Kylo, not the grey beard and longer hair he had on Ahch-To with Rey. He also doesn't leave footprints.

** In the final scene, as the young boy heads out to sweep up, he doesn't pick up the broom from the wall; he opens his hand and it ''floats'' to him, indicating he is Force sensitive.

Added DiffLines:

* EyeOpen: A close-up on Paige as she opens her left eye after falling down the shaft of her bomber.


* {{Flanderization}}: Luke's characterization in ''The Last Jedi'' as mentioned by Rian Johnson in the commentary is based on ''The Empire Strikes Back'' rather than the figure at the end of the OT. [[spoiler:Luke's inaction is explained by Johnson as stemming from Luke feeling that his intervention at Cloud City ultimately hurt his friends, and they would be fine without him, even if eventually that failure led to him freeing Han Solo and destroying the Hutt family ruling in Tatooine. Luke's constant moping and self-pity is him regressing to the whining figure he was during his early training with Yoda, while his attack on Ben Solo is based on him reacting similarly to a vision of Darth Vader at Dagobah. Yoda in his return appearance also lapses back to his Empire era characterization, with his first meeting with Luke having him allude to his "always looking at the horizon" speech]].
