Star Wars: The Last Jedi ★★★★★

Empire may still be the best of the franchise, but this is the best "Star Wars" movie. It takes everything that makes the series (the originals and prequels) what it is—hokey dialogue, corny jokes, dog fights in space, romantic mysticism, tortured villainy, semi-unnecessary set pieces—and puts them in a movie which simultaneously tells us to throw all that away, because holding onto the past is pointless at best, troublesome at worst.

Anyone who professes to be a Star Wars fan and hates this movie actually hates themselves, they just don't know it yet… Kylo Rens of the world unite, and follow the optimism of Rey to the promised land.
