Has How It Should Have Ended finally gotten too obvious?

The other day, How It Should Have Ended dropped their newest video, for The Last Jedi. And… I laughed, but I was never surprised.

Maybe it’s just because this movie ended up with so much chatter about it, about all of the different little parts people wished were different. All the perceived plot holes or plot complaints.

Maybe it was because I watched the HISHE review of The Last Jedi.

But basically, this HISHE felt like fanservice. Sure, they frequently have elements that play into fan complaints or fan observations about the film or plot. They have some fun surprises or shortcuts usually though. I love the Lord of the Rings resolved with the eagles, that’s just classic. And Harry Potter resolved with time travel? Perfect.

But this one just served up all of the fan service. And the comments? “It’s the canon Last Jedi!” and “Better than the original!” and such. Because the number one unifying complaint about this movie is that it wasn’t what fans expected, and by extension, not what fans wanted. So now they’ve been fed what they wanted, but for me… it’s falling flat.

Hopefully this is just an oddity of this episode, of this HISHE. That they have some fun, unique surprises ahead to hit us with. The Mary Sue, at least, seems to think that some of the scenes were jabs at the an complaints: maybe so, and that is certainly a reading which allows for them to keep doing their thing moving forward. What do you think?

Wonder Woman HISHE!

Life might be crazy, but there’s always time to take a few minutes for How It Should Have Ended, right? What do you think about this one? I know I liked the end…

Poor Legolas…

Okay, so we thought the How It Should Have Ended for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was pretty great. They had a lot of fun with it, and… well, apparently they had more fun with it even than we thought.

Yeah, that’s stuck in my head now. Enjoy!

Thank you for reminding me how good this movie was, HISHE!

I guess it’s a Guardians of the Galaxy kind of week. But this one has me excited for the movie to come out in a way others things haven’t. Enjoy!

 

Now that Rogue One is out… Rogue One parodies are out!

Oh man, some of these are a little too true… I guffawed at the end, especially. Great Force Awakens clip…

And of course there was the How It Should Have Ended, which as usual found many of the plot points where the movie could have just ended right there. What up, noobs?

We haven’t gotten our hands on the movie yet, but we’re excited to watch it a second time. This is one that in years past I probably would have seen more than once in theaters. It was good, and the parodies aren’t detracting from that for me. But they are making me question a bit… is it quite as good as I remember? Maybe I should go back and listen to our podcast on it to jog my memory!
