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

Sure, there are all kinds of sub-Campbell, box-ticking lazinesses--ok, history (and the hero's journey) repeats itself, but this blatantly? this immediately?--and transparent Snokescreens for gap-filling, blockbusting side-stories, but! This is Star Wars, man. Maybe it's embarrassing, but Luke Skywalker was a certain seven-year-old's personal Jesus. The arc of his myth is done justice here, then sealed with a sunset.
