Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ★★

Not very good, but didn’t feel any worse than the other Abrams one or Rogue One. Glad they brought back the Emperor - always a funny performance from that guy, and in doing so the film becomes a metaphor for itself, desperately courting a decayed emblem of a more successful era of the series as Kylo does with the Emperor.

Also love that the film references an event in Fortnite, cool multi-media narrativizing! Saw on Christmas night at a dine-in theatre in my hometown where the servers spoke at full volume while the movie was playing. Proper way to see it I’d say.
