[VIDEO] Star Wars The Last Jedi Review (SPOILERS)
I am by no means a movie critic. But I do love Star Wars. Here are some of my thoughts on the eighth movie of this saga. Be warned there are some spoilers in this review.
Here is what I liked about the film. First, the action picked right up where the last movie left off. Like, the very last scene from The Force Awakens was where this movie starts with Rey and Luke. We get a whole lot more of Po, Finn and Rey in this movie with addition of Rose. It is great to see that this saga is not so much about the past as it is about the future and the story these characters are telling. It was also nice to see the reunions in this movie. My favorite was when Luke sees R2D2 for the first time in a long time. It was a great call back when R2 plays the original message from Leia to Obi-won. Of course seeing Yoda back on the big screen was super awesome too.
Here are a few things that I thought were missing from the movie or just not needed. Let me say though these things were not a deal breaker for this movie. I still loved it! I really would like to know more about Snoke. We did not learn much about him in the first movie. So you would think he would get developed more in this one. But instead, they just kill him off. Kind of a bummer. I wanted to know how did he take over what was once The Empire. I also thought the casino scene and DJ was a little bit too much. We don't get to know the DJ character too much. I would like to know more about him and whats his deal.
I loved this movie. What did you think? Are you ready for episode IX? Tell us your thoughts below.
