    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★½

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi is an incredibly divisive film. Critics love it, but fan and audience reactions range from mixed to vehement hatred. So what do I think? When I first saw this film, I did not know what to expect. I saw it a week after it released and somehow avoided any discussion of it. I had one of the most wild moviegoing experiences of my life.

    Unlike its predecessor, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is movie that’s deeply personal to me. This wasn’t initially the case, as at first I just simply thought it was better than the first one. But within a couple of months I dug deeper and found the reasons why I felt a connection with the film. While the first film was about broken people finding a family, this sequel further expands on how…
