Star Wars: The Last Jedi

A review in 50 words:

While deeply flawed—its tone and comedic sensibilities better suited for Marvel rather than Star Wars— The Last Jedi is what we needed. It challenged our understanding of the galaxy, affirmed that you can come from nothing and still be a hero, declared that The Force belongs to us all.

Final Verdict: 👍

Final Verdict: 👍
