    So even after rewatching this film and paying full attention it still doesn't make any sense. I'm not sure if Shane Carruth is a genius or just really excellent at coming up with strong narrative ideas but not executing them clearly enough

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★

    Pacing was way off, too rushed, not enough time to sit with the info we were being delivered because there was just too much to get through and the run time was already over 2 hours. Just kind of made everything of equal importance.
    Also too much deus ex machina, but it IS a Star Wars movie so I don't know why I'm complaining about that.
