    Star Wars: The Last Jedi


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Loved it so much I watched it twice! Once with a big ATMOS screen, and again at IMAX 3D just to round it off.

    P.S. I didn't watch TT3D in 3D, but like most "3D" movies, didn't feel like I was missing anything.
