While the film appears to ostensibly pass the test repeatedly, the new, strong female character (Rose) who is shocking because... oh my god... she looks like average woman with a normal build and flaws. That seems great, right? Sure- until she completely contradicts her entire personality by falling for Finn so hard that she actually behaves EXTREMELY SELFISHLY FOR THE BENEFIT OF A MAN who was about to do something very noble (yet stupid) and sacrifice his life to save The Resistance base. Why does she do this? Because she can't bear "losing her new boo". So much disappoint! Meanwhile, after the crash incident, while she kisses him and professes her love just before passing out, in the background that First Order Grond-thing blasts the base's doors open which would appear to doom the last of The Resistance to death, all because of a man. It's an affront at worst and bait and switch at best!

I almost forgot, when Admiral Holds and Princess Leia do speak to each each other, what do they speak about? Poe! FAIL!

This is purely wrong. I did find it interesting that this page is empty. Even though Star Wars the Last Jedi is the biggest feminist propaganda piece in years they couldn't even make their own precious women characters pass this basic test. The only time I can think it could possibly pass it is when Leia and Holdo talk about Holdo sacrficing herself on the ship of the resistance. This however does't even count as the main subject of conversation just before this is talking about Poe (a man) and how great he is.
