I'm still going to see it in the theater. Maybe not opening weekend, but definitely while it's still in first run. I have seen every single one since the original Star Wars: Episode IV (before it was ret-conned to A New Hope) and I see no reason why to stop now.
I am actually cautiously optimistic that this will be better than Last Jedi. I don't have the same vitriol against that movie that some people do but at the same time I wish that parts of it didn't happen. I would rather watch any of the prequels than SW: TLJ again.
What I find hilarious is that C-3PO actually thinks that any of the other characters consider him as a "friend". What could possibly cause him to think that? More important, why would they?
Let's take a look at this.
First, C-3PO totally abandons his robro-pal R2-D2 in the desolate wastes of Tatooine even though Artoo was carrying the essential, top secret plans to destroy the Death Star. And, lets him run off again! How hard is it to stop an astro-mech droid? When he was supposed to be watching Luke's back completely misses the Tusken Raider with the gaderffii stick sneaking up from behind. He follows that up by nearly botching the translation protocols of a freaking trash compactor and needed R2 to bail him out, once again.
When Threepio isn't taunting Han Solo about the astronomical odds against them then he is cock-blocking Han from Princess Leia or blundering into a room full of Stormtroopers and getting blasted into 9 pieces and then Chewbacca gets stuck lugging his shattered remnants around all the while being berated by Threepio for putting his head on backwards or not connecting the optical receptors correctly. Jeez.
Heck, if he hadn't scurried up the ramp to the Millennium Falcon at the last minute Han would have left him on Hoth.
Is it any wonder they sent him into Jabba's Palace without a single shred of information about the secret plan? Good thing he was too stupid to see through Lando's excellent job masquerading as Tamtel Skreej or he would have totally blown his cover. I guess he was too busy brown nosing his new master out of fear of being fed to the Rancor Beast. Didn't bother lifting a single golden finger to help poor chained up Leia.
Hey, don't think that him getting the teddy bears living on one of the moons of Endor to rise up against the Empire lets him off the hook. Nuh-uh. That was all Luke and Threepio was once again simply a mindless dupe.
Doesn't do much in the prequels except getting built by Darth Vader, having his head transplanted to a battle droid's body and witnessing the birth of Luke and Leia before promptly getting his memory wiped. You see, they didn't trust him with that information. They knew that yellow bellied blabbermouth would spill the beans at the first sign of EV-9D9 and her assistant 8D8.
In Force Awakens he was shown with a red left arm. Nobody seemed to care. C-3PO Cock Blocks Han Again
For the most part C-3PO has been a whiny, Debbie-Downer who just grates on the nerves of everyone around.
I wouldn't be surprised if C-3PO has been a sleeper agent for the Empire this whole time. Built by Darth Vader remember? Then there's the thing with the red eyes in the trailer. Maybe when he says, "Taking one last look at my friends" it's right before he goes all Terminator on them!
Think about it!
