The Last Jedi | Movie Review


It has been a long time since I was able to see a movie during the opening weekend, but I got lucky this time. My dear mother purchased us tickets to see for my dad's birthday. As the planets aligned, we left the kids with the baby sitter and made our way to the theater, there was a giddy feeling that crept in. 

This was how me and my husband looked walking into the theater. All sparks and fire. Our view was kind of skewed from our seats. Second to the front on the right hand side. Whatever, we were there. 

And then the movie started...

There was some of this...


A little bit of this....


And a few of these cute little guys...


To me, the story was great. There was a lot of character development or Ray and Ben Solo. We found out a little more about what happened to Ben to turn him into Kyle Ren. Ray went in search of her past in a dark cave and Finn took a girl to a casino. Strange but true. 

The cinematics were great. I felt like they went back to the old school ways, where they let the acting and story speak for themselves, instead of the heavy CG shots where all you see is the backdrop and the awesomeness of the force is a second rate show. 

Some old friends stopped by the island, and the humor was great. In the serious moments, the characters would throw in something that would make me laugh, but not pull me out of the moment. It was really enjoyable. 

There was mention of Ray's parents which I know we all have be speculating on. The whole thing left me like this....


There is a lot of explaining to do, people. You can't leave me like this...

I really enjoyed watching the movie with my family. If it wasn't for the really annoying lady sitting next to us, who couldn't stop talking really loud, and the fact that she picked the one part in the movie that was totally silent to snort and laugh really loud, we would have enjoyed it even more. 

I give this epic Star Wars movie four stars...
