Star Wars: The Last Jedi is to go into with absolutely, positively, no exceptions about it NO SPOILERS except for this one little thing- here will be my one and only spoiler about the lastest installment of the saga of the galaxy far, far away-get all of your popcorn, drinks, candy, use the bathroom and do everything you need to do or you think you might need to do before the movie because once the opening crawl starts, you will not be moving from your seat for the next 2 1/2 hours-except to maybe move onto the edge of your seat at certain points but other than that-get ready for the ride of your life because Star Wars: The Last Jedi is everything you hoped it would be, dreamed it would be and wanted it to be and so much more.
The movie is reminiscent of The Empire Strike Back and covers every emotion. You’ll laugh more than you’ve ever laughed during a Star Wars movie, yes you’ll cry more than once, you’ll scream, you’ll cheer but mostly you’ll have the best time of your life on this E-Ticket, roller coaster, hang onto your popcorn ride of a movie.
It’s a buddy picture in ways never expected. It’s about the love of family and most importantly it continues the fight of good vs. evil, light vs dark and makes you question just where the lines are drawn as to what divides and has you rethinking everything you thought you knew and sends your minds spinning as you come out with many more questions than you went in with. It’s the kind of movie that you need to see at least twice, and possibly a third just to process everything and let it all sink in.
The new characters fit in with the story so seamlessly it’s almost as if they were the missing pieces of a puzzle that you’d been looking for all along and the beloved characters of the past make you fall in love with them all over again. And then there’s the Porgs….rest assured that they are in no way the new Jar Jar Binks of the Star Wars Universe and yes, you are going to need one. But the most important thing that you need to know about Star Wars: The Last Jedi is that you have to see it for yourself- it’s just that simple!
“Something inside me has always been there, but now it’s awake.”
“Hope is like the sun. If we only believe in it when we can see it, then we will never make it through the night.”
“No one’s ever really gone.”
“That’s how we’re gonna win. Not fighting what we hate, saving what we love.”
“We are the spark, that will light the fire that’ll burn the First Order down.”
But most importantly…
