I just saw Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

As a movie, it’s not as entertaining or tightly structured as Force Awakens. There are draggy moments in the middle…you could even say unnecessary moments. The character portrayals in Force Awakens were better. So I’ll rank it below Force Awakens.

BUT I LOVE the Luke Skywalker/Force/Rey/Kylo side of the story. I was watching the old films before going to the cinema and I remember being worried that the direction that his character is going, hinted by the trailers and interviews, was going to ruin the old films. But no, I found it to be consistent. Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi have shown glimpses of Luke’s inner conflict before and he just gets to lay out all his feelings here. Him talking smack about the whole Jedi thing was kinda satisfying for me.

So yeah, the Luke/Rey/Kylo storyline was the standout for me while the rest was ok.

My Star Wars rank:

  1. Star Wars: A New Hope
  2. Empire Strikes Back
  3. The Force Awakens
  4. The Last Jedi
  5. Rogue One
  6. Return of the Jedi
  7. Revenge of the Sith
  8. Phantom Menace
  9. Attack of the Clones
