Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)

US 152m, Colour
Director: Rian Johnson; Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, Benicio del Toro

As the conclusion to The Force Awakens (2015), The Last Jedi completes Luke Skywalker’s story in part eight of the ongoing Star Wars saga. Mirroring much of the original Star Wars (1977) story, the rebel forces seem all but doomed. As a book end to Episode IV – A New Hope, this installment might more accurately be titled: A Last Hope. Filled with comedic elements, and a few old characters that fans are sure to enjoy, The Last Jedi is an entertaining film that wipes the slate clean in the Star Wars universe (Klaus Ming December 2017).

    I just saw this yesterday and I liked it a lot. Too long, too many detours, but the big scenes were really effective.

    Snoke’s throne room may be the most memorable set in any modern franchise movie that I’ve seen.

    Hamill and Fisher were tremendous (I’ve read that most of her memorable lines were her own contributions to the script).

    Ridley was really good, too. I liked her better than in The Force Awakens, but that may be partly because I thought this was a better picture.

      Yeah, the throne room scene was great! Overall, I really did like this film – and how it was set up in The Force Awakens. One of the few Star Wars features that I eagerly awaited.
