Star Wars: The Last Jedi [AKA Episode VIII: The Last Jedi] (2017, dir. Rian Johnson)

The last remnants of the rebellion flee the First Order. Superior eighth instalment of the space opera, daring to ring a few changes on the template re-established by its predecessors while bringing new characters further to the fore.

Other opinions? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s, and here’s Xussia’s.

 

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017, Dir.Rian Johnson)

Disappointing continuation of the saga that does this series more harm than good. Overlong, over written and over produced in almost every way with shiny visuals and little else. So much of this makes no sense it becomes irritating. A tragic let down.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015, dir. JJ Abrams)

Chapter 7 in the Skywalker saga. This rebooted SF/fantasy is a calculated pleasure, riffing on no end of series themes and on the structure of the 1977 movie in particular. Slightly soulless, but a decent reintroduction to the mythos.

Return of the Jedi (1983, dir. Richard Marquand)

The Rebel Alliance battles another Death Star. The last part of the original trilogy works hard to include something for everyone (all points from slavery to teddy bears) as well as to wrap up its soap-opera character arcs. For fans only, tho,
