If The Force Awakens was an exercise in nostalgia, The Last Jedi is an experiment of expectancy. It pushes the boundaries of its characters, its audience, and the franchise's capacity...

The Last Jedi isn't the Star Wars installment anyone wanted. It's the one we all deserve.

Like bantha fodder riddled with kyber crystals, The Last Jedi is a jumble of really good and kinda bad.

To paraphrase Yoda, longtime fans have to "unlearn what they have learned." And that's a good thing.

A glorious cinematic tour-de-force, a sci-fi gift that never stops giving, a real achievement.

The Last Jedi offers aimless entertainment.
October 31, 2018
The film breaks many franchise traditions on all levels, but it does so with a lot of respect and with the ambition to build something new and exciting from what remains.

If Awakens was about The Resistance and The First Order repeating the cycle of The Rebellion and The Empire, this one is all about how they have to become their own things and what the proper way to get there is going to be - and that's exciting.

The Last Jedi breathes urgent purpose into the new trilogy, purpose it had yet to prove.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
October 30, 2018
More than merely a continuation, The Last Jedi is in many ways an ending to the Star Wars we've known. And like many endings, it's anarchic and frustrating and poignant.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Whatever the future holds for Star Wars, The Last Jedi will leave a lasting mark on this legendary series with numerous moments that are shocking and powerful with just enough humor to cut the tension.

It's safe to say "The Last Jedi" is one of the best "Star Wars" movies ever made. It's right up there with "Empire Strikes Back."

Big, bold and beautiful. It's hard to describe Rian Johnson's achievements here any other way.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

Grabs the audience from the very first scene and doesn't let up, guiding viewers on a thrill ride that will have audiences gasping, laughing and perhaps even shedding a tear.

Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi manages to be both brilliant and terrible at the same time, a mix of classic mythos and insipid story telling.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 10, 2018
In every aspect conceivable, the film no longer operates between two realms, and the result is the most gratifying big-screen Star Wars experience thus far.

I can only wonder what The Last Jedi might have been with Finn and Poe taking a backseat. Because there is a great film within what's ultimately a good one.

[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.
