While lacking in character growth for some of the main cast minus Rey and Kylo episode 9 was a fun and action packed conclusion to the saga, wasn't a fan of the text crawl and its never explained why Palpatine is back, that being said Ian McDiarmid is fun as always on screen. a lot of fan service but only a couple of moments I wasn't a fan of SPOILERS Chewy getting his medal was egregious but I digress. The films comedic beats land more than they did in The Last Jedi and some of the action was better executed in this film, even though The Last Jedi was better shot than this film, at times the film feels like its in a rush to get to the conclusion as there is barely any time to breath in the film. C3-PO was actually used well in this film and he had some of the better comedic moments. overall I feel this film and trilogy as a whole could have been handled better and would have been if Disney planned out the story in its entirety but despite that they have delivered some solid star wars films and concluded the saga with a solid action adventure 7.5/10 not as good as TLJ but more entertaining then TFA
I've seen this film 3 times and it just seems to get better, My friends and I are still discussing our own interpretations of the film. The two actors, Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, give career defining performances and the film is shot beautifully in 35mm black and white and is presented in a 1:19:1 aspect ratio which helps sell the claustrophobic setting and allows for some stunning shots. The film can also be quite comedic at times without ever contradicting the tone it sets up. There are multiple monologues throughout but one in particular, you know the one, totally hypnotised me and for a minute i completely forgot Willem Dafoe was human. This film fucked with my brain and I cannot recommend it enough 10/10
while not as character driven as the first The Lost World adds a handful of expertly crafted set pieces and effects that still hold up. the cast is Great and each brings a distinctive and fun personality to their characters, an overall darker but enjoyable blockbuster sequel. 7.5/10
There are no Bad Movies only happy, happy, happy, happy ones.
