Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi ★★★

Second time wasn't as good as the first. Once the surprise and delight is gone, you're left with a pretty uneven movie. My mind was wandering during all the Jedi Island scenes, Finn's adventure, and every scene where Po Dameron has to talk. The rest was pretty good -- a step in the right direction, at least.

I'd almost give this film 2.5 stars, but the "idea" of a "Star Wars" movie is so appealing. I grow weary of these trilogies. Truth be told, I'd like to see more films like Rogue One; I'm definitely in the minority, but I loved that one.

I've heard that Disney is rethinking their entire strategy. With Solo "failing," I have a feeling the new direction will displease me. What a shame. I wonder how long my nostalgia for Star Wars is going to hold...
