Trivia

Benicio Del Toro's character is never given a name throughout the course of the movie. However, merchandise and other sources have designated his character as "DJ." It is believed that they're a set of initials that are spoken by Del Toro's character in the movie. To be specific, DJ tells Finn "Live free, don't join." See more »

In the last battle, the battle speeder fleet view from the back show their shadow front to the right but everything else - AT-M6's, cannon towers, etc show a shadow which should be back right to the speeders. See more »

A fan base divided
23 December 2019 | by Aaron_KyleSee all my reviews

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi was released in 2017 and directed by Rian Johnson. The film opened up to favourable critics reviews but very mixed feelings from fans.

What the Last Jedi suffers from is Rian Johnson's completely different vision which made what JJ Abrams set up completely meaningless including the characters arcs (most of which this film ruined) and the story's main villain. Also, out of all of the Star Wars films The Last Jedi manages to be the most boring one due to it having many scenes leading up to nowhere and unneeded fan service which isn't really fan service since it divided the fan base. The film's runtime also could have been cut down by a good 25 minutes as it has an unneeded casino planet subplot with minimalistic character development.

To give it credit The Last Jedi is, for the most part, enjoyable and has a few memorable moments such as the Throne room battle. The visual and sound effects are on point as they are with every other film in the franchise and the score by John Williams is delightful, to say the least. Another thing The Last Jedi got right was Kylo Ren. His character progressed throughout the film and most of the film's best moments were his scenes.

Final Rating - 7-/10
