Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi ★★★★★

Still holds up beautifully. I can’t get over how phenomenal and unique Star Wars: The Last Jedi is. After the mediocre, pandering bore that was Rogue One, this film is exactly what the franchise needed. While I guess could understand a bit why people would be a bit irked by getting a different Luke Skywalker from what they expected (a Luke Skywalker who isn’t a one-note Mary Sue, and who is actually human with a three-dimensional arc for once), the constant hate that the film and Rian Johnson have received is absolutely ridiculous. 

I hope that Rian Johnson gets to do more films like this. We need more filmmakers like him who make interesting choices, provide rich characterization and thematic depth, and, last but not least, don't pander.

Oh, and May the 4th be with y’all.
