caroline’s review published on Letterboxd:
god it sucked.... i cannot express how awful this movie was to watch. imo this is the worst star war. i watched this movie two nights in a row, which probably contributed to why i hated it so much. instead of being its own movie, it relies entirely on the nostalgia of star wars while completely disregarding the momentum of the movies before it. the plot is nothing and the pacing is TERRIBLE. the movie expects the score to completely carry every emotional beat on its own, which is impossible because the score is just a greatest hits album on repeat. poor daisy looks like she's talking to a wall whenever she has a scene with archival carrie fisher, and it sounds like they used an ai to write all of rey's responses to the little they had with leia. honestly every time i even think about this movie it makes me angry. >:(
kelly marie tran deserved better!!!
