It would have been much more suitable in an Obi-Wan movie. He was actually there and saw it all, saw it all fail. And a movie set all on Tatooine with an Obi-wan adventure could have much more space and time to explore it as well as any redemption he may find or change to the Jedi ways. With Luke it is all rushed and sloppy and how it is told and his conclusions makes no sense.
Watch the film once just to experience it. Watch it again to look for things in the background, scenes that you weren't paying attention to the first time around, this time with the power of hindsight to better understand why things happened. Watch it a third time to refresh your memory and purge misconceptions from your head put there by people bitching about inconsequential details of a work of fiction not meant to be taken seriously. Repeat steps for use in future debates.
Agreed. though I think Obi wan was a better Jedi than Jake Skywalker was.
JJ set up the mess, RJ delivered.
It's important to remember the former. There's a weird general consensus in certain circles that TLJ is bad because it spoiled all the amazingly amazing stuff JJ so deftly set up in Farce Awakens, which of course couldn't be further from the truth.
