22. Finn wants to confess something to Rey but never actually does.
There’s a recurring motif in “The Rise of Skywalker” about Finn wanting to tell Rey a major secret he’s been keeping for her. And then we never find out what that secret was because I suppose Finn simply forgot about it.
23. Still no space battles
JJ Abrams’ two films in this trilogy are strangely devoid of any space action, when compared to “The Last Jedi.” We can’t fathom why every spaceship battle in “The Force Awakens” and “The Rise of Skywalker” would be crammed into a planetary atmosphere, but we’re certain it’s strange. “The Rise of Skywalker” in particular has a battle involving the two biggest fleets we’ve seen in any of these movies, but that fight happens in Exegol’s atmosphere rather than space. And there’s a sequence at the beginning of the movie where Poe repeated does hyperspace jumps directly from one planet’s atmosphere to another. Why would a “Star Wars” movie try so hard to avoid outer space?
