“It’s not what you say, it’s the way you say it!” If I had a shiny new pound coin for every time I’d heard that, I’d be a rich, rich man. Trouble is, it’s not exactly accurate is it? Great dialogue transcends both the performance and the film from whence it came and has the ability to infiltrate popular culture and consciousness. From the endlessly quotable to the words you wish you’d said yourself, each week will feature an iconic iteration. So in the words of Reservoir Dogs’ Joe Cabot…”Let’s go to work…”
Nevermind it’s irreverent tone, the ‘killing’ of what’s come before and Benicio Del Toro’s l-l-l-lisp, the most irksome aspect of The Last Jedi is arguably it’s dialogue.
The Star Wars Saga has never been known for its sharp and snappy dialogue, but Episode VIII seems to take it to the outer rim and beyond. So, with this week’s release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Totes Quotes pulls out a few lines that you can type, but you sure as hell can’t say:
Rose, to Finn: “I wish I could put my fist through this whole lousy, beautiful town.”
Hux, to Snoke: “We have them tied on the end of a string.”
Leia, to Poe: “Get your head out of your cockpit.”
Luke, to Rey: “The legacy of The Jedi is failure, hypocrisy, hubris.” Seconds later: “…that mighty Skywalker blood. In my hubris, I thought I could train him, pass on my strengths.”
Poe on Holdo: “It’s on a need-to-know basis…and she doesn’t.”
Finn, to Phasma: “Let’s go, chrome dome!”
Rey, to Kylo: “Murderous snake!”
Rose, to DJ: “You lying snake!”
Snoke, to Rey: “Oh, such spunk!”
