[The Last Jedi is] proof that well-made franchise stories... can deliver a new engrossing chapter that respects the much-loved past while slowly closing the lid on it, and steer the ship in exciting, mature ways that push the boundaries...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi works. It's macro and micro stories entertain, either if you're predisposed to like what it has to offer, or at least not actively resistant to it.

But on many levels, The Last Jedi is the antithesis of the virulent discourse it generates: a reminder that flaws can give way to strengths, that being willing to be wrong is a strength, and that doing the work, not getting the credit, is what matters.
August 26, 2018
Whereas the first half is a sort of a convoluted mess. "The Last Jedi" becomes a dark and exciting sequel that becomes the film you've been looking for by the 75-minute mark.

The success of The Last Jedi, like its father before it, will most likely rest on the conclusion of the trilogy.

It's the one we've been waiting for.

If you're a fan, you're going to appreciate the story continuing (on and on). If you're into makeup and CGI, you'll appreciate every minute of it.

It calls the very idea of solo heroism into question. There are plenty of daring heroics in The Last Jedi and no shortage of characters who want to step into Luke's or Han's shoes, but now that impulse is shown to just make things worse.
August 21, 2018
Along with non-stop action, there seems to be more wonder, whimsy and humor in The Last Jedi, some of it deliciously subtle.

When it comes to pop cinema at this massive level, isn't it better for a movie to take Imperial-sized chances than just giving you what you want? I'll go with yes.

Johnson takes the narrative through its paces, weaving a complicated and fascinating story. Just when you think one thing is going to happen, the story shifts.

Thoughtfully humane and visually epic.

A wonderfully directed, acted, and progressive film. Though it takes place in a galaxy far far away, the emotions and politics are very much here on earth today.

Whereas JJ Abrams's The Force Awakens delivered a nostalgic joy that focused on reigniting a legacy I grew to love and obsess over throughout the years, Rian Johnson instead creates a nostalgia towards my years of childhood imagination.
August 14, 2018
With deep reverence for what has come before, Disney has proven that they aren't afraid to move the story forward.

The best "Star Wars" film since the original trilogy.

It is overall, a good movie worth watching. And timely, as our own modern-day First Order takes roots.

The Last Jedi speaks for the strength of a united front against imperial aggression...The final image leaves us with the assurance that young people tired of injustice will pick up the ball their elders dropped.

On a second pass, the questionable was extremely overpowered by the bold and the courageous, and I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi through a different prism. I connected with it differently.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi may not be perfect, but the need to accept imperfection and keep going becomes one of the movie's themes...It's about mentorship that's invigorating rather than smothering.
