William Karlsson’s review published on Letterboxd:
Yeah, this is gonna need to sink in more.
Just gonna go through some things I liked and didn't like.
Kylo Ren continues to be one of the best villains in recent years. Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley are both excellent.
One of the best fight scenes in any Star Wars movie involving lightsabers. One of the best looking films of the year. John Williams' score is great, and better than the one he made for TFA.
Rian Johnson directed the shit outta this movie. I am ready to recieve your original trilogy, sir.
I wasn't invested in Finn and Rose's storyline at all. Some pacing issues in the first act, and another thing involving time that I won't discuss because I don't wanna give away a thing.
My biggest praise is that this is an unpredictable movie and I'm very curious to see what they'll do with ep.9. And now with Trevorrow gone and Abrams stepping in, I'm more confident that it'll be good.
