Better than I expected..
huge letdown. big ol intergalactic stinker
A narrative that mixes, not always successfully, stirring moments and sensational action with angst and grim conflictedness on a galactic scale.
Like many before it, The Last Jedi has already been hailed as the best Star Wars movie since The Empire Strikes Back, and while that’s true, it’s too faint a compliment. It’s a film of genuine beauty, one where you come away as eager to talk about the set design and the choreography as you do the fate of the galaxy or what might happen next.
The space battles and lightsaber duels are appropriately exciting, but Johnson keeps a close eye on the human element that girds this galactic odyssey. Rather than simply regurgitating Star Wars’ past, The Last Jedi emphatically builds on it.

Movie Info & Cast
The saga of a new generation continues in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which picks up right after the events of The Force Awakens. The First Order has the Resistance fleet, led by General Leia (Carrie Fisher), on the run. Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) is having a hard time obeying orders, while Finn (John Boyega) goes on a side quest to a casino planet called Canto Bight. And Rey (Daisy Ridley) finally tracks down a rather cranky Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) for a little Force training. Too bad getting Luke to cooperate is easier said than done…
But it’s cool, because porgs happen. PORGS. Are you ready for their incredible saucer-eyed cuteness? Trick question: it’s impossible to be prepared for porgs.
Star Wars newbies like Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran join the fight in that galaxy far, far away. And for Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), his fascination with Rey only deepens as she studies with his old master. Don’t miss the movie that changed the Star Wars universe forever!

- Rian Johnson was originally considered to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).
- When the hospital ship runs out of propellant, it gets slower and starts tilting to the back without any apparent outside influence. This would not happen to any object in space that simply stops being propelled - it would continue on its exact trajectory until stopped by reverse thrust our outside force.
- Rey: I know this place.
- Luke Skywalker: Built a thousand generations ago to keep these. The original Jedi texts. Just like me, they're the last of the Jedi religion. You've seen this place. You've seen this island.
- Rey: Only in dreams.
