Star Wars - The Last Jedi
So of course it is another story about good vs evil, except this time a lady gets to fight with a light sabre, the baddie takes the mask off and Carrie Fisher shines in her role while Luke Skywalker looks like he is heading off to rehab.
Although many of the nuances of the story may have been lost on me, and some of the plot points as I may have dozed off in places (to be fair I was at work until 4am this morning and only managed to fall asleep from 6-7am). I did find it entertaining, and you know what you are in for. Lots of serious discussions, battles, explosions, running, a touch of zen thrown in, more battles, loud explosions, fire, and finally the big battle. I do wonder though if all the focus on the special effects comes ahead of making a good story, often it feels to me like it is just a series of battle scenes strung together in order to sell more video games.
So I wandered as I left the cinema if my friends boys will be coming back in another 40 years to see the newest one in the series? 3/5
