Beyond the Stars is a series of Science Fiction related posts where I discuss different aspects of the genre and the many tropes and plot lines associated with it. Today, I talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi from Lucasfilm.
Beyond The Stars: Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review
I sense a disturbance in the force. As if a bunch of nerds kept crying out in agony and refuse to be silenced.
Or something like that.
Yep, time to dip our toes in shark infested waters and talk about lightsabers. Having narrowly dodged spoilers somehow, I managed to see the film last weekend and I’m prepared to give my honest thoughts on it. To start, I’m going to get this out of the way and say that while I had some issues with it, I enjoyed it overall.
So I know I usually avoid spoilers out of respect, but I feel this is a rare occasion where I cannot discuss this movie without discussing the climax, because a lot of big things happened in such an, admittedly long, timespan. As a result THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE FILM. SERIOUSLY, IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED UNTIL THE BLU-RAY COMES OUT, THEN LEAVE NOW. DON’T YELL AT ME BECAUSE I SPOILED IT. =)
Now then, let’s begin.
