MrDevinJB’s review published on Letterboxd:
Tonight was my first time rewatching this in two years. And wow, I absolutely adore this film. It takes elements from the original trilogy to create its own unique place in this franchise. And I think a lot of that has to do with Rian Johnson. He tackles ideas that we’ve never seen in this franchise while also celebrating what we love about it. What they did with Luke was incredible and felt like a natural progression of his character. This film has a great story that kept me invested all throughout. And it has the best cinematography and visuals in the entire series.
And yeah, this film is divisive for some reason? Don’t get me wrong, it’s fine to dislike this film. Completely fine. But if you think this is the worst Star Wars film or even one of the worst films of all time, then I simply think that you don’t watch many films and you’re way too forgiving on the prequels.
Nothing more to say. I’m excited for the upcoming film and I hope it’s just as great as this one. This may be my favorite Star Wars film simply because it’s the one I think about the most and the more I think about it, I love it.
