Kris FT’s review published on Letterboxd:
A welcome strip-down of all that we know about this saga; to make way for new stories and new ways to get the viewers thinking. Rian Johnson challenged us to think out of our comfort zones and put away the popcorn and childhood memories with a message of "letting the past die".
Star Wars: The Last Jedi makes a necessary turn to give life to new and fresh ideas, for sake of moving on and find new blood. As expected, there is certain fan service, but much less than its predecessor.
There is no doubt that this the best looking Star Wars film. The cinematography and shots were a pleasure to the eye. The use of the color red is absolutely gorgeous.
It's unfortunate this film wasn't well received by many an audience, especially when it does a fantastic job of challenging us.
OF NOTE: I believe they could have done more with Benicio del Toro's character and I do agree that the Canto Bight sequence was not exactly necessary.
