    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★½

    This movie is atrocious. Nothing in this movie makes sense story-wise. Let me point out several abysmal story-telling decisions:

    1. Snoke is dead. The most interesting part of Episode VII was figuring out and theorizing on who Snoke is. We learn NOTHING. And of course we learn nothing, because Snoke was a creation of J.J. Abrams who never thinks through anything.

    - The antagonist was basically the anti-Hitler (e.g. "We will kill everyone opposing us and their children") and thus hard to empathize with. A more smart, less hatred-filled villain would have been better because he would have created conflict among the viewers.

    Overall: Marvel is on the right track with this one. It needs improvements however.
