Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi ★★★★★

Arguably the best, most unique, most audacious, and most emotionally rich installment in the entire saga, even somehow surpassing The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is not only a terrific middle chapter in the Star Wars sequel trilogy but also an utterly stunning big-budget blockbuster debut from writer and director Rian Johnson, with pulse-pounding action sequences, dazzling visual and practical effects, gorgeous cinematography, beautiful production designs, wonderful characters, masterful character development, phenomenal performances, genuinely surprising and well-executed twists, and a smart, humorous, strikingly well-crafted script that pays loving homage to what came before it while still offering plenty of new, unpredictable, and creative things as well as superbly expanding upon the story and characters set forth by The Force Awakens.
