Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I love this movie so damn much — after my first viewing I came out feeling like this was my new favorite Star Wars film in the series, and after a second viewing, I loved it even more (noticing and appreciating more the dialogue that pointed to where we were heading). I truly enjoy it from start to finish, and both times I watched it I never felt any lulls or scenes that felt boring. It’s a joy to take in, from the fun tone, to the explosive and visually stunning action, and the insanely iconic sequences (Rey/Kylo in the throne room, Luke’s showdown). I’m just saddened that it won’t be Rian Johnson directing the next one (J.J. is back for episode 9), but I am that much more excited for the new trilogy he’s been announced to make.
