Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

The First Order Strikes Back: Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

It was always going to be impossible not to compare Star Wars: The Last Jedi to the first Star Wars sequel, The Empire Strikes Back. Especially after the previous episode, The Force Awakens, got a lot of flack for being a spiritual remake of the first film (undeserved flack, in my opinion). Unfortunately for The Last JediEmpire is generally regarded as the best instalment in the saga, so expectations are high, and comparisons are dangerous…

What The Force Awakens does right

I don’t know if there’s ever been a movie with higher expectations than Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Okay, maybe The Phantom Menace, but that’s the black sheep of the family we don’t talk about. The pressure to get things right must have been extreme. I’m pretty surprised director JJ Abrams even survived the ordeal.
