'The Last Jedi' - Epic, experimental, awesome.

The Force Awakens brought audiences back to Star Wars and what they love. Rogue One put the 'War' back into Star Wars. The Last Jedi brings back the mythic elements and the epic cosmic scale of the long running space opera franchise.

The First Order is winning and the Resistance forces are on the run from the increasingly (and absurdly) gigantic doomsday weapons hot on their trail. Rey, Finn, and Poe all come to their own conclusions to how the war can be won. Rey ventures to bring Luke Skywalker back into the fight; Finn goes on a solo spy mission, and Poe well, he just wants to blow things up. They have to contend with cautious military commanders, the evil machinations of Supreme Leader Snoke, and the vengeful near mad Sith apprentice Kylo Ren.

Compared with J.J. Abrams' directi...

The Last Jedi - Review

"This is not going to go the way you think"

That line right there basically sums it all. When you predicted everything that's going to happen, then suddenly get the carpet pulled underneath at the last minute. You either like or dislike Rian Johnson choices, but at least it's going in a new direction and not another remake.

As Kylo Ren put it: "Let the past die"

What I love about 'The Last Jedi' is how it doesn't care what you think about 'Star Wars. While not insulting you as the audience. Taking fan theories or the mystery 'Force Awakens' stet up, and shut it down completely. Instead, what we get is a bold message about are our places and where to find hope.

Rian Johnson absolutely kills it with his direction. Perfectly framed shots and the magnificent ci...

The Last Jedi Review

So I've seen it, the latest Star Wars movie in the franchise, Episode VIII, also known as "The Last Jedi". What can I say about "The Last Jedi"? I'm glad to say that I enjoyed the movie very much, it was probably the best Star Wars film since "Empire", though that does not mean that problems are absent in this film. It isn't a remake of the former, though it does inject varied doses of throwbacks, plus some plot elements are taken directly from it and "Return of the Jedi". The visuals are great, there is plenty of action to be enjoyed and the story keeps you interested all along. Disclaimer: With this review I wanna express my thoughts regarding some aspects of the film, and to that I have to get into spoiler territory. Usually I try to keep my revi...

The Force is Strong With This One

The Force Awakens brought a new generation into the Star Wars fold, even as it also brought in the nostalgia to remind long-time fans of the original trilogy - at times maybe a little too much nostalgia. Rian Johnson takes the second film and makes it his own. While it does feature a darker theme, in lines with the second film in the original trilogy - Empire Strikes Back, in terms of story it forges its own path, and one that makes this the strongest entry in not only the new trilogy, but much better than the prequels and right alongside the best of the original films.

The Last Jedi picks up pretty much immediately where The Force Awakens left off - with Rey (Daisy Ridley) finally tracking down the reclusive Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill, in top form) on Ahch-To, where the f...

"Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi" by Yojimbo

While Rey attempts to recruit the now reclusive Luke Skywalker to the rebel cause, the last desperate survivors of a besieged rebel base flee the First Order fleet under the personal command of Snoke himself.

The Last Jedi opens solidly enough with another Death Star attack inspired space battle that although now rather over familiar, it is executed with panache and supplies the requisite thrills and spills. Once the flashes and bangs subside and the film settles into its story arc, the cracks start to appear however. For the second act, I wouldn't go as far as saying I was bored exactly, but I was certainly getting restless. By the time I experienced a navel-gazing Rey in a hall of mirrors, the slowest and most protracted "hot pursuit" this side of one of the drearier episod...
