Amazing action and wonderful storytelling full of twists and turns make this one of the best Star Wars movies to date.

It would be difficult for me to give a Star Wars movie anything but a See Now! rating, even though this one comes with a bit of a disclaimer that I really need to see it again to form a better opinion. A lot of that has to do with the circumstances around my first viewing. The theater was packed, we were in the very back row of the theater, and I missed the first half of the initial space battle because the theater was slow in preparing our food. All those things add up to a non-optimal moviegoing experience, and I've seen before that issues like this tend to color my impression of a movie.

That said, this is a good next installment of the Star Wars franchise. It's not a copy of Empire Strikes Back, which is a criticism that I've seen, although there are many parallels with the other movies. It's difficult not to draw those parallels when you have a battle taking place on a planet covered in white (salt instead of snow) with the bad guys going up against the entrenched rebels with walkers that are next-gen AT-ATs.

I do agree that the movie could have used some judicious editing. It's a two-hour movie that went 30 minutes too long, or a three-hour movie that had too much cut out of it in order to reduce the running time.

I think it's interesting where they're taking the characters, and I wonder how they're going to wrap things up for Episode IX. I guess that it's a good thing that after seeing this one, I'm looking forward to seeing how they continue the story and bring it to a final conclusion.

It's also a good sign that even though I don't think it's one of the year's great movies, I do look forward to seeing it again. I think I'll pick up on more things and if the viewing environment is better, I might enjoy it more as well. I'll be back to update/replace this review at that time!

The Star Wars series continues to achieve greatness with the eight installment of the series. "Star Wars Episode VIII: the Last Jedi" (or is it?) is about the past as well as the present. the focus of the movie is on two characters which played a major role in Episode 4-8. Luke Skywalker who became a hermit after one of his students turn on him and became part of the dark force. And the other is Princess Leia who is trying to keep the rebellion alive against the First Order. Carrie fisher who played Leia died last December, and her death could play a major part in Part IX. We'll wait and see. Approaching his doorstep is Rey who wants to learn to Jedi ways. After a while, he took her in. I'm going to stop there and I'm telling you to see the movie without giving away the ending. I caught a TV ad which it's telling viewers not to reveal the ending. This is he first time a TV ad for a feature movie is telling viewers not to give away the end. It could be a trend that will probably be in more TV ads. We'll see. This movie runs about 2 hours and thirty minutes. The longest of the the Star Wars movie. I love the series and I'll be seeing the next installment, it will be out in December 2019 if I'm not wrong.

Certainly an ambitious Star Wars movie, taking many chances throughout with character moments, setting, lore, story, and visuals.

While director Rian Johnson certainly delivers on many expectations and chances he took, there were noticeable moments that fell short for me, that didn't address points and questions I had.

That being said, so many other moments were visually stunning and memorable, I can look past them.

Good but dragged in parts
