Does The Last Jedi Bridge Generations?
The Last Jedi picks up immediately after The Force Awakens. The Resistance is scrambling, even though it has dealt The First Order a heavy blow. The Resistance is lead by General Leia Organa (Carrie Fischer). But their base of operations, Yavin IV has been discovered and is forced to flea. Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Finn (John Boyega), and BB-8 remained with the group while Rey (Daisy Ridley) seeks the aide of an Old Jedi Knight, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
The Last Jedi marks the second to last of the “Skywalker Saga”. It was announced earlier this year that JJ Abrahms will return to direct the yet-to-be-titled ninth film.
I was extremely hesitant to post this review. Many reviews found the movie… lacking. While others considered it among their favorites. For me, in all honesty, I’m still not entirely sure how I felt. Or even still feel. I will be seeing the movie again in about a week, and either my feelings will be confirmed or changed. I will never not see a Star Wars film in the theater, even if it does not excite me. However, for this film, I may have set myself up for over-expectations.
We will all have our opinions. They can all be valid, yet the most disturbing aspect for me is how “fans” are treating each other over these opinions.
