Lucas Tribble gives his thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
Synopsis- Having taken her first steps into the Jedi world, Rey joins Luke Skywalker on an adventure with Leia, Finn and Poe that unlocks mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past.
Lucas’ Thoughts- Let me get started by talking about all Star Wars fans fears about the film, is it like Empire Strikes Back? Well good news, IT IS NOT! In fact, it felt like one of the most original Star Wars films that I have seen since Empire Strikes Back. People were frightened by this theory due to the high similarities The Force Awakens had with A New Hope, which I do not think that there were that much similarities between the two.
The Last Jedi surprised the hell out of me. Even watching any of the various trailers could not let me predict what would happen in this movie. The twist and surprises are around every single corner in The Last Jedi and I loved it! But I must say that I think there is going to be a lot of people that are disappointed with this movie since it feels like a different kind of movie than The Force Awakens did. With that, the questions that are answered and the twists that happen aren’t what people are really hoping for. But I think that the true Star Wars Fanatics will enjoy it.
The Last Jedi could not have been what it is without Rian Johnson, whose previous works include Brick, The Brother’s Bloom and Looper. It is very clear that he is a massive fanboy of Star Wars and this film is more like an impassioned labor of love. His writing and the way he directed this film all shines with, what I think, is his best work yet. It also included probably the
best cinematography and visuals out of any previous Star Wars Films. I also think the acting was very well with Mark Hamill having the stand-out acting performance of the movie.
Final thoughts- Star Wars: The Last Jedi is not the greatest of all Star Wars films, but it is damn near up there and I honestly put it just behind Empire and A New Hope. If I have just one complaint for now, it could have been just a little bit shorter than its run-time of 152 mins. If you are a true Star Wars fan, I plead you to avoid any spoilers what-so-ever and I recommend everybody to Go See It In Theaters!
