I like Star Wars: The Last Jedi...
I can still admit it's flaws.
Defense of the Sequels part 2: The Last Spoder
Yes, people can do that. We can like something and still find flaws in it. Like, Force Awakens, I saw this film the day before it came out and I loved it. It was one of my favorite movies of 2017.
And yes, there are things that I didn't like, the Canto Bight plot, Holdo (sorry Laura Dern), and Rian Johnson deleting a scene of Luke mourning Han (I would've bawled if that happened). However, none of these ruined the movie for me.
But, I know what you're here for. You are here for me to explain why I think the Last Jedi is a good movie. So let's begin...
Reason 1: Luke Skywalker
Are you done with your rant? You are? Good.
Luke Skywalker has changed, and that's what makes this movie great. He has evolved. He's experienced things, and those things have broken him. One of my favorite types of heroes are the broken kinds, who eventually rise back to greatness. Luke embodies this perfectly. I love how he beats Kylo by outsmarting him. It shows how much Luke has grown. And his death is one of the most impactful scenes I've ever experienced in film. And yes, I bawled.
Reason 2: Rey's parents
When they revealed that Rey's parents were nobodies, I was dissatisfied.
I was foolish.
Rey's parents being revealed as nobodies, was a brilliant move. It's a great lesson that teaches us that you dont have to come from someone or something amazing to be amazing. You want more proof? Watch this video from How To Be A Dad (all credit goes to him! 😌):5:14

Reason 3: Failure.
This movie failing is a good thing. Yes, I did just say that. I am glad that this is not as good as some of the others. Because I now truly understand the themes of this movie. The theme of this movie, as Yoda said, is failure. Characters, in this film, fail, and they grow from that failure. Failure is important to us. Without it, we're nothing. "The greatest teacher, failure is."
Well, that was my review of Star War: The Last Jib Jab, which I give a 3 out of 5 stars. And remember, if you don't like this movie, that's okay. This is all my opinion.
have a nice day 😌
