Star wars: The last Jedi

Caution!!! Spoilers! You have been Warned.


Things are not going to go the way you think. Literally.

This statement is not just a quote from Luke Skywalker. It’s also talking about the movie itself.

For about a year, fans have been theorizing over this movie. Who is Rey’s parents, who is Snoke really? But now this movie is out, almost none of the theories matter*. That made me disappointed a little bit when I watched this movie, but the quote up above helped me understand the brilliant plan the directors. They would only show particular scenes from the movie, and fans would theorize over the movie, using only the scenes they put in the trailers. Everybody, including myself, we were just spending so much time theorizing, we didn’t think that our theories might not matter.

Now, I respect all Star Wars theories, I’m just saying we never thought that our theories might not even be in the movie.

Brilliant, directors.

But here’s the review now. Have fun reading, and MTFBWY.

I had the special opportunity to watch the last Jedi on Dec. 14. Did you?

I loved the new character Rose. She was smart, and when she has her mind on something, she is determined to get the job done. This is shown when she can’t get the button to launch all of bombs on the Dreadnought. She doesn’t give up and get get die. She keeps kicking, and kicking until the button eventually falls, and she pushed the button, and helps the Resistance blow up the Dreadnought.

It was also great to see Luke Skywalker in the flesh. When we see him, and he just throws his lightsaber from the Empire strikes back, nobody could have seen that coming. He also makes some funny quotes. Here’s my favorite quote from him in the movie:

Luke: Nobody’s from nowhere.

Rey: Jakku.

Luke: Okay that’s pretty much nowhere.

But the most shocking thing we saw in the movie is FORCE GHOST YODA! I was kind of disappointed that we didn’t see force ghost Obi-wan; but then I remembered that he [force ghost Obi-wan] got to be in two movies now! Give Yoda a turn now! I didn’t suspect that he would destroy those sacred Jedi texts. But then again, they weren’t really page turners.

The last Jedi joke.

And when Luke Skywalker died, I was actually satisfied with Luke’s death. He became one with the force, and there was a sign of peace in his face.

Also, Supreme Leader Snoke. While the CGI used to make Snoke was bad, his presence and the evil floating over him made Snoke a little bit better. This is a bad guy who just enjoys being evil for the sake of being evil. He says a bunch of quotes that prove that he loves being a bad guy. His death was also very shocking!

Oh, and did I mention Leia used the force in this movie?

What I didn’t like was the CGI. I didn’t like the CGI, and a lot of the scenes seemed crammed. Also, I was hoping that Captain Phasma would get more screen time. But I loved this quote when Phasma and Finn are talking to each other:

Phasma: Scum.

Finn: Rebel Scum.

This movie would be a B+, but there was a lot of funny stuff in this movie.

I give this movie an: A.

Thanks for Reading, and may the force be with you.
