Star Wars – The Last Jedi
I will just start off with a bold claim and just say that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is my pesonal favorite movie in the whole Star Wars Franchise! Without giving out any spoilers(which is quite difficult), I’ll tell you why I feel this way…
Director Rian Johnson did an amazing job combining the best of the past and present. The storytelling is by far the best of any Star Wars movie. In fact, the two and a half hour runtime simply FLIES by! Add to this, the fact that the cinematography, soundtrack, acting are spot on, you have a clear winner. Another great thing about this movie is the way that Johnson brings back the nostalgia that made this franchise great in the first place!
I know that I am not alone in this as during our press screening, the audience consisting of ONLY press, erupted in applause no less that 5 times!(That alone should be telling!). One big new thing is actually the effort to add a little more humor into the franchise and it is a most welcome addition too.
I won’t even delve into the story as I do not want to ruin any of it for our readers.(We can all have discussions on it after you guys see it.)
Oh, and let me just say that this movie also contains one of the best scenes in Star Wars History! Run, don’t walk to go see this one!
