Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ★★★½

Better than the sum of it's parts. Some aspects were disappointing. Some aspects were downright infuriating. But still managed to, in my opinion, satisfyingly and emotionally wrap up the Skywalker Saga. Can't help but wish I lived in the alternate universe where Rian Johnson got the chance to end this saga, but I take deep comfort in the fact that this could've been a lot worse. This movie working for me and touching me at all is nothing short of a miracle.

(Please note my *heavy* bias.)
