    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★½

    I really enjoyed Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) a lot, loved a lot about it, in fact. But I can't say that I got goosebumps at any particular moment like I did with The Force Awakens (2015). Maybe it's because, in the case of TFA, it had been much longer between SW films and the prequels didn't age well at all. Maybe I expected too much from TLJ. I do know that I am looking forward to a second…

    ★★★½

    Very enjoyable doc about one of our greatest living directors and arguably one of the greatest directors ever.

I would have liked a more comprehensive delve into each and every film (not to mention the man's many endeavors outside of just directing). Some were barely mentioned or touched upon (Always was curiously the only one of his films not even glimpsed, unless…
