The last sentence here sums up my feelings on The Last Jedi as articulately as possible. It feels weird, being a fan of a movie so many uber fans have dismissed. But, it’s also a special sensation, in how we all found the diamond in the coal mine.

I wrote about one of my favorite aspects, the character Rose — which is a divisive point to bring up for many. While I’m sad by those who find her annoying, I’m also glad. She should be challenging, and in more ways than gender or love interest related.

In time, it’s gonna be interesting to see how this entry will be treated. Better than Empire? I dunno. That’s for history to decide. As good as it can be? That’s for me to determine. And yes. Yes it is.
