My review of Star Wars The Last Jedi…

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Source</a>

Ok, I waited for two weeks (actually three) after the movie’s release to share my review.

This is the 3rd year in a row that we have gone to a Star Wars franchise movie on Christmas day. Last year we saw Rogue One. This year it was the Last Jedi. I will try to minimize the massive spoilers as it is a very good continuation of the story.

I do however have a couple of nits to pick, the first being the overall first temple of the Jedi. I do understand the concept of having ancient texts as books, but the plausibility of them being the only copies annoys me. The other was the whole concocted escape ruse that was a little over the top,

overall a great movie, one that I highly recommend. I give it a 5 out of 5.

    • I was actually talking to my kids about that. They grew up with the Star Wars Universe, I grew up with the first three movies. It is a very different experience.

  1. I thought the movie was terrible. I have to admit that I was skeptical of Disney taking over the franchise but I thought The Force Awakens and Rogue One were excellent. That only made my disappointment over The Last Jedi worse.

    First of all, the creatures were too cutsie. The bird-like things that Chewbacca befriended were ripoffs of the minions from the Despicable Me movies.

    SPOILER: You knew that Luke would show up in the end even if how he shows up was a bit of a surprise. When he brushes off his shoulder after they fire at him, you knew something was up. Jedi are not invincible.

    A minor point but one I found annoying: When the rebel fighters come out in the final battle, it looks like they are putting something red on the ice. However, nothing happens with it. I thought that maybe the ice was over a body of water and this was going to melt through so and the imperial equipment would fall through, but nothing.

    • All excellent points Gary, I keep telling my sons they are replaying the original three movies set 30 years in the future. I agree that Rogue One was a better movie!

      • i wanted to have fun. life is short. and, i didnt realize that the 3D movie was shown in the VIP theater section. it was the first time i saw a movie in the vip area. reclining chairs that are cushioned and a side table.
