Mainly because 

1. They got screwed over hard after the death star went boom because chunks of it started to rain down them

2. In the defense of the Empire Ewoks are deadly .

Han Solo can fly the Falcon through hyperspace with such accuracy that he can bypass a planetary shield.

But the First Order can’t jump ahead, in open space, of a hundful of ships just outside their weapon range?
Ship class difference

The  millennium falcons a smuggling vessels modified for infiltration (smuggling) and hyper accurate long and short range jumps 

Star destroyers are not designed for short range jumps and instead work with smaller faster ships using them to engage first bog the enemy fleet down then hammer them when in range .

This is proof the First Order like the Empire before i misuses it's ships

 Or... you have a Jedi at the helm and you can drop your Star Destroyer exactly where you want it.

As seen in the final battle over Scarif where one Darth Vader emerges from hyper-space directly into the path of the Rebel ships attempting to flee.

So... a young Ben Solo... Uhm I mean Kylo Wren might have or should have been able to take either the fleet captial ship and force control a hyper jump in front of the Radis... Or he could have taken command of any one of the other myriad Star Destroyers following the fleet command ship and dropped it in front of the Radis.

But... that didn't happen and other stuff went on in the film instead.

Yeah... not interested in IX.

Will save my money for the next Jumanji outing.

Cheers.

1. This assumes Kylo has that ability and again star destroyers can't hyper jump like that 

2. Vader wasn't leaping from one point to he other short range

 True. Kylo might not be strong/skilled enough as a Sith/Jedi...... So then, what about Lord Snoke?
 Also.. given the time depicted as passing in the film.. making two or more jumps to place a vessel in such a position would not seem to be out of the question. *Shrug* Jus' sayin'.

 Also (Relativly) true. Vader's ship is still, however, emerging from Hyper-space exactly where it needs to be to stop the Rebel fleet from hyper-spacing away. That it is possibly Vader's personal ship (With all of the crew traiing and higher level of staff skill that entails) and that Vader is definately in a position to personally control the outcome of that particular jump would also seem to not be in question.

 Do such skills carry over into Last Jedi? *Shrug* Answering either way presents different issues.

 Rewatching and one sees a cargo ship smear itself across the Star Destoyer's bow as it begins to rush forwards. Again, more questions posed when the two films are reveiwed.

Much cheers.

So you finally buried the war axe with Jar Jar Abrams.

Btw Mandalorian is finally first real Star Wars since those first three movies.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

RE: Ep IX
This was probably the worst written film of the new trilogy - the dialogue, the structure of the narrative - it was horrendous. The last 15 minutes were pure cringe.

That being said.... the story ideas in general were good, the humor was good, and all the action was great.

I will probably never rewatch this trilogy lol

RE: Ep IX
I've heard so many people recount how they saw EpIV in the movies back in 77 and rewatched it 5 times. I'm a child of the late 80s/90s, but it's close enough that I can imagine what it must have felt like for them. Whenever I watch IV-VI, I kinda watch them through the eyes of all those people. I have some nostalgic feelings for V and VI in particular, it was the first ones I saw on TV, and I loved the contrast in scenery of space/degoba/tatooine.

I can absolutely tolerate I-III except two things: the abysmal acting and CGI in II, and the fact that III is historically too.close to IV and thus demystifies what in IV is still a mysterious and obscure past/legend. When Obi recounts tales of a time long forgotten, this mystique adds greatly to the atmosphere of the whole original trilogy, and this gets effectively erased by Ep III, otherwise the best prequel.

EpVII was super meh and I lost interest in seeing anything beyond that.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

I haven't had much investment in Star Wars, but this movie was not good.

There were a lot of lazy writing tropes employed, but I was pissed at the way

"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great
