Still just as enjoyable the second time
So I don’t know what everybody’s problem with this was, this was fucking awesome! This film juggles a lot in terms of setting up the plot as well as setting up where the world and characters are now since the end of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. The major characters have clear motivations and the action scenes are stellar. Sophie Turner is incredible here with Michael Fassbender and Nicolas Hoult being highlights too.
Well this is gonna be controversial but personally this is the best Star Wars and it’s not even close. Rey and Kylo Ren are two of the most interesting characters in the saga, Mark Hamill gives a career best performance and Luke Skywalker has never been more interesting than he is here. The cinematography and the VFX are incredibly stunning and unlike the previous film, this feels like something new and fresh while also paying tribute to what’s come before, even the prequels that I feel had largely gone ignored in The Force Awakens.
