“Confronting fear is the destiny of a Jedi.”
RATINGS NOT EXCLUSIVE TO ONE ANOTHER
I just saw The Rise of Skywalker for a fourth time with my parents: it was my favorite time I’ve ever watched a Star Wars movie in the theater.
When it ended my mom and I were in tears, and I leaned over, hugged her and said, “Thank you for getting me into Star Wars” as the credits rolled.
Nothing will ever change that moment for me. That moment alone might single-handedly be my favorite moment I’ve ever had in a movie theater.

Really liked this a ton! Was super touching and actually made me cry. Filled to the brim with emotion, heart, and soul. And that’s not mentioning the obvious: how incredible the animation is.
Hearing Katie talk about filmmaking and what she was passionate about, only for her dad to say “Are you sure you can make a living from this?” and “I just want you to have a backup plan,” really hit close to home.
The writing here is exceptional, and I really wish the machines would rise up already so that I can reconnect with my parents the way this family does.
Director: “Look, I’ll make your stupid shark movie, but I just want ONE THING.”
Studio Executive: “And what might that be?”
Director: “I want a fish to scream directly at the camera.”
Studio Executive: “...You know fish don’t have lungs, right?”
Director: “Take it or leave it. That’s my final offer.”
*Executives look at each other*
Studio Executive: “Just give him the damn fish scream, Kyle.”
When people claim that JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson “ruined” Star Wars and “only care about pushing agendas rather than telling a good, cohesive story,” I can’t recommend these documentaries about the making of the Sequel Trilogy enough as a counterargument.
Also the part where Adam Driver accidentally hits Daisy Ridley with his lightsaber and muffles “I’m sorry” under the Kylo Ren mask is one of the most unintentionally wholesome things I’ve ever watched.
