HKFanatic's rating of the film Star Wars: The Last Jedi

There are moments and sequences in this film as evocative and emotionally stirring as anything in the Original Trilogy ("That was a cheap shot"), but the discursive, jazz-like rhythm of the pacing feels most informed by Lucas' prequels. The result is the first true Rorschach Test of the saga, as evidenced by the critical split. Wherever you fall, there's no denying this is truly a Star Wars film for the Trump Era.
