Watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) by an author from
Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares to do battle with the First Order.

First time I’ve watched this with my children (8/11). They quite enjoyed it and I didn’t hate it.

I still find plenty of it maddeningly moronic. Like “dropping” bombs in space. And how moving steadily in one direction, in space, burns fuel… But that was easier to look past today.

However, it’s harder to look past just how many scenes drag on. Even the characters admit that’s all they are doing at one point.

But there are still lots of cool moments and the more irreverent tone bothers me less with time.

I just think that Rian Johnson (like Edgar Wright) might be better off not directing his own writing work…
