Day 14: 16/12/2017
Star Wars, The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson
Despite all the good reviews about this movie, I couldn’t find anything bearable about it. There were way too many unStar Wars moments. At first, Luke Skywalker refuses to teach being a Jedi to Rey for what feels like 45 minutes – which also seems very obvious since the beginning that he is gonna accept it at some point. Then when he finally agrees, he guides Rey to kind of meditate not like a Jedi but like my Yoga teacher. However, in her first try, with no efforts or anything Rey immediately hits rock bottom of a dark world and both her and Luke gets really terrified. It’s just that everything happens so easily in this movie that it doesn’t even make me believe in them. Also, one of things I hate about movies is that when they pretend to do something but they can’t dare to hit the highest note : it happens a lot of times in The Last Jedi. It’s obvious that they are striving for a calculated success instead of telling a sincere story but I hope it will come to an end soon. The cast started to look like a highschool reunion of all the bullied people.
