In only two weeks of being in theaters Star Wars The Last Jedi has proven to be the most divisive film of the saga. In my spoiler free review I tried my best to explain, without revealing any significant plot points, why the hate for Last Jedi is completely unnecessary and instead should be lauded for its bold direction. This review is filled with spoilers so I’m warning those now who haven’t seen the film to read at their own risk or read my spoiler free review here. I’ve noticed what aspects of the film people seemed to love and hate the most and analyzed whether they worked well or didn’t work at all. Firstly let’s begin with the most hated storyline of The Last Jedi, the Canto Bight sequence.
First the Game of Thrones series recap and now this?! I was already so, so, sooo excited for The Last Jedi even though it’s basically releasing a half a year from now. Currently my hype for this film has reached light speed after the Star Wars’ official youtube channel released a behind the scenes look at the 9th film in the epic saga. So here it is, the BHS look at Star Wars Episode VIII along with my reaction!
As promised, a teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped yesterday and it was absolutely gorgeous. I’ve watched it about a dozen times now, discussed with friends, and watched a handful of youtube videos dissecting the trailer.
