The Mystery Box has been opened- AND IT’S EMPTY!
I really liked this movie despite it having some flaws. The stuff with Luke and Rey is fantastic- Yoda was straight out of ESB, beautiful! However the B and C stories were meh at best.
Luke and Rey, Kylo and Rey mind connection, Snoke’s Death, Rey and Kylo’s short lived team up, YODA, Yoda, and Yoda, Andy Serkis acting like he was given some direction this time, Kylo Ren’s origin story having three different tellings, Rey’s parents being junkies, light speed kamikaze, the infinity mirror scene, Luke facing the entire FO fleet on his own, the force projection fake-out, and the return to the binary suns.
Not-so Great Things:
Finn and Rose’s story was a bore, Canto Bight was unimaginative, Poe learning the same lesson 100 times about being trigger-happy, SuperLeia, BB-8 commandeering an AT-ST, the slowest chase of all time between the Supremacy and the Resistance Ship, deactivating another thing on a ship because Star Wars, Phasma going out like a chump AGAIN, the soundtrack sounded like a William’s imitation (sorry, John), DJs awful stutter, the space battles felt like semi-video-gamey-cutscenes.
Things I need to think about:
Luke dying because he was tired.
