I’M BEING COMPLETELY SERIOUS
YOU’VE BEEN WARNED
also little spoilers about the movies before this one
I was going to start this review with this is the movie we’ve all been waiting for but I don’t really think that’s true because the Force Awakens was the movie we were all waiting for and plus I feel like I’ve started thirty different reviews that way. This was a movie that we were all looking forwarded to because it’s fucking Star Wars. I love Star Wars, honestly it’s probably my favorite franchise and I also love that I’m live during the time when the next generation of films are coming out. I mean I was probably a live when the prequels came out but who gives a shit about the prequels? I saw the Force Awakens in 2015 and I loved it but I did have some issues with it as it’s lack of plot and the fact that there’s another fucking Death Star. I didn’t review because by the time I saw it, people had already said everything that had been said about it and then Rogue One came out which had one of the coolest endings ever! Again I didn’t write a review because I didn’t really want to.
But today *December 17 of 2017 I watched the Last Jedi, the movie that I have had so much anxiety about ever since they announced the title. I mean seriously if you didn’t see the announcement about this film being called the Last Jedi and didn’t get anxiety of what the hell was going to happen to Luke then you are most likely heartless or just didn’t care. This is called the everyone while is normal when it comes to emotions while Grace only ever cries method. But basically there was never once a second when I wasn’t scared for Luke leading but then the release date got closer and I got scared about the whole movie in general as some people really loved it and then some people hated it and then some thought it was fine. After seeing this movie, I can’t understand why people would hate this movie as it has some of the best Star Wars scenes in the whole Franchise. That doesn’t mean that this movie doesn’t come without it’s flaws.
Unlike the Force Awakens where I literally didn’t leave me sit because I was enjoying the film so much with this film there are so spots where you wonder why they are there and it makes you want to leave because you could care about anything else. The parts involving Rey and Luke as she tries to get him to help the Resistance and help her try to figure out what is happening with the force are so of the best parts of this film. Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley are amazing in this film and the scenes they are great. Some another scenes that I love and didn’t expect to love were the scenes with Kylo Ren and Rey. As they are bonded together in way that they can communicate and those scenes are amazingly acted and amazingly shot. I didn’t like I was going to like them because I thought they were going to be these cliche scenes but they weren’t. I loved how they looked and I loved the sounds happening as they talked. It was just so cool!
That’s another plus about this movie is that it is wonderfully shot. There is one scene where Laura Dern turns the ship around and slams in it the enemy ship and the way it is shot and shown is wonderful. There is no sound and honestly it’s so amazing. I never knew how much one silent scene of ship crushing into another would be so beautiful to see. The last part of this film was honestly an anxiety attack. Like the first part was okay like I said I only really liked Rey and Luke scenes, the other ones weren’t the best. But the last part was anxiety because things just kept getting worse and worse and I didn’t think things were going to get better for them and I was freaking out but they did. The resistance run away to a place where the rebels hid and the Empire gets there and they try to fight and after lots of stuff happens which I will get into later, Luke just shows up and they try to shoot him down and for a second you think well I thought he was died and i got so mad thinking that was the way he was going to kill him but then it’s shown that Luke is still alive and he just brushes his shoulder like all of that was nothing.
He and Kylo face off and it is amazing like it’s lightsaber off and like a verbal comebacks and it’s so great! When then learn that Luke wasn’t really there and that he was on the island where Rey found him. Luke does pass away and even though it broke my heart I love how they came full circle with him as the scene with his death as he looking at the two suns and the same music is playing and I’m tearing up just thinking about it. It was so good! Luke is one of the best parts of this film. Carrie Fisher is also amazing even though she is a coma for a good part of this film but she comes back and she’s great. I’m worried about what will happen for the next movie because Luke is dead, Han is dead, and they planned on Leia having a big role in the next one but Carrie Fisher as passed away so I’m scared about what might happen for the next one.
I didn’t like how they treated Finn in this film. Like he is still a great character and John does a great job playing him but his storyline isn’t great. He and a new character Rose, who is the cutest thing by the way I loved her and felt like she could have had a better story as well, go on a mission to find a codebreak who can break them into enemy ship who is following them and I didn’t like this storyline. I didn’t like how they sort of forced Finn and Rose into a relationship and that kiss just wasn’t timed well. They just took to great characters and placed them in a storyline that didn’t really work well. They should have had a better story. I also didn’t like how they pulled Yoda out again! Guys! How many times do we have to do this! Stop bring Yoda into everything! I get that we used him to get Luke to help others and bring him back but there could have been another way we could have done this. And I knew they were going to do it too! Like Luke is walking to get the books but then they do this shot as if someone is watching him and there he was and AHHH! Laura Dern’s character is one that I forget was in the film and then when she appeared in it I was like oh she’s here. I liked her character she was fine but the scene where she saves everyone is pretty great.
Honestly this film is really great it’s not my favorite Star Wars movie but it’s not my least favorite. Remember the prequels? It’s okay neither do I. For a Star Wars film it has some best moments in the whole franchise. I think you will enjoy and if you don’t then I’m sorry. I’m going to give Star Wars: The Last Jedi a B+
I really enjoyed this film and I love Star Wars so it was great. I am scared that people will hate on this film for all the wrong reasons which I don’t want.
