Pay closer attention...Holdo didn't communicate her plan because it depended on secrecy (they were trying to deceive the First Order). She didn't communicate to Poe because Poe was supposed to learn to forking listen, follow orders, and not run off half-cocked.
I'm not stupid. I notice the message and I accept that's what Rian Johnson was going for. Its not really a complicated movie at all.
Here's the problem: Commander Holdo is in charge of the ship, and the mutiny against her (and the eventual failure, due to Finn / Rose's mission messing up her plans), is fully a mistake that Commander Holdo makes. Secrecy of the plan could have been kept, but she gave no
indication to any of the characters that she even had an escape plan
. That's why Poe rebelled. If they wanted to show Poe as a gun-ho hothead who screws up with well-made plans, then they should have unambiguously shot the movie better
to indicate that was the case. The movie as shot, is a lesson in Holdo's incompetence, and her inability to communicate plans to her underlings.
Ex: If they shot a spy on the ship, and THEN
Holdo tells the plans (indicating that she had "information superiority" against Poe), that would have been awesome. But as the film stands, there was no spy on the ship. (In fact, the only spy was DJ from Finn / Rose's adventure). There's no reason
to believe that Holdo's words on the ship were somehow being read or listened in on by The First Order. So why the hell is Commander Holdo being secretive about things?
Ex2: If Holdo knew about Poe's mutiny (and Finn and Rose's mission), but "lets it happen anyway" so that Poe can blow off steam, that too
would have been acceptable. If Commander Holdo truly is worthy of being a commander and understanding of her underling's emotions, she would have been able to manage the mission even in the absence of direct control.
Its one thing to have a failure because you're up against a powerful enemy. The failures of TLJ however, were due to internal politicking, idiotic character choices, cowardice on behalf of otherwise heroic characters (ie: Luck Skywalker running away and canonically shutting himself off of the force against the face of unspeakable evil). All of these are fundamentally unfun.
Perhaps its real. I know of real people who have made mistakes akin to TLJ. But I'm not watching a space opera with laser swords and unrealistic physics for that reason. (Lol at "dropping bombs" in space. Does Rian Johnson even know how gravity works?)
