3. Bargaining ("If they did away with that entire scene and jokes")
4. Depression ("I feel really bad of what I saw in "The Last Jedi"")
5. Acceptance ("Yeah, there were a lot of bad things that were almost deal breakers in "The Last Jedi" but the substantive parts of the film blew my mind, made me re-evaluate the ideas and theories and does move the story in a different direction so it's a new a pure rehash of the Original Trilogy).

I went through "The Five Stages of Grief" with "The Last Jedi" and have accepted the film for what it is, which is it's an awesome film from a certain point of view.
I'm pretty much going through the 5 stages of Star Wars grief that you are talking about going through, very similar to yours. To me there is a lot more good in the film, so I'll accept it as part of the canon and move on to thinking about Episode IX.
