    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It’s no secret that the original Star Wars trilogy was something special. Many say it is the greatest trilogy of all time, some say that the three movies are the best sci-fi flicks brought to the big screen, others say that Empire is one of the greatest movies ever made.

    4/5.

    There are four stages to me watching a scene in this movie:
