The Jellicle and I went to the cinema this afternoon, this morning we hung out with DS Luke who said that The Last Jedi script felt a bit flabby to him. I have to say I agree.
When authors or franchises get famous I notice they suddenly lack good editors. Rogue One was awesomely tight, The Last Jedi could have done with that too.
Having said that it was rather enjoyable and I am incredibly tempted to cosplay Rose next Hallowe’en or other opportunity. I didn’t think I was too fussed about seeing the latest Star Wars on the big screen but turns out I really liked it. There’s something about those yellow letters and the music that has an emotional resonance for me.
I suspect it’s heightened by the house smelling of Christmas leftovers as I’ve made stock today. A Star Wars movie at Christmas and it wasn’t one I’ve seen before – delicious!
