This might come as a shock but I'm thinking about putting Palpetine under comic relief now. I'M NOT EVEN JOKING! Because he was absolutely stupid in The Rise of Skywalker. Lets start with the fact that it was so obvious that he was thrown in this movie out of a lack of imagination and unlike the prequels he isn't fun in this movie not to mention the fact that his presence in this film undermines the original trilogy and the previous films in the sequel trilogy. None of his lines are memorable unless he's quoting Revenge of the Sith and he's barely allowed to do anything until his apparently final this time demise. OH but I think he's funniest moment in this movie is when he decides to go IMA FIRIN MY LASER on the resistance and just shoots he's hands with lightning at the sky. It was honestly like something out of a cartoon. Don't get me wrong I thought Ian McDiarmid was doing a good job as always but his dialogue and the way he acts is just so boring. So yeah JJ just ruined him in this movie but lets see your thoughts otherwise.
