Me & My Muse Go To the Movies #9: Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Part II

Okay.  It’s been almost a week since we saw the movie.  Are we going to talk about it, or what?

 

*Muse transforms into her adult form*

Muse:  Yes.  I’m ready.

You slept in quite a bit today, didn’t you?  Until 1:00 in the afternoon if I can recall correctly…

Muse:  There’s a reason for that.  For the past few nights, I kept having these nightmares about Snoke.  I was Rey, and I was cornered…then he force slammed me against the wall and Kylo minced me into pieces with his lightsaber…

*sigh*  Is that the only reason?

Muse:  Yes.  I know…It’s pretty dumb, isn’t it?  I have these dreams a lot in some of the mystery books that I read…

Well anyway, let’s get to the movie.

Let’s begin with first impressions.  What did you think of the beginning?  There was a scene where the Resistance was fleeing their base and running from the First Order’s fleet.

Muse:  I loved the beginning.  The title crawl was pretty good.  The events pretty much picked up right after The Force Awakens…

After that, the Resistance escapes, or did they?  The First Order found them pretty quickly, even when they jumped into hyperspace…

Muse:  Yeah.  I noticed that.  They can actually track the Resistance, even when they go into hyperspace?  This really worried me.  It’s over.  The Resistance is going to get wiped out…

But there could be some hope for them yet.  Shall we revisit Rey and Luke from that ending scene?

Muse:  The epic ending scene where Rey gives Luke his lightsaber?  Yeah.  I liked how they reshowed that.  And then…Luke tossed it aside?  Come on!  That’s not the Luke I know!

It actually is.  Luke is fed up with training any more Jedi.  After what happened with Kylo Ren, that was it.  It was time to end the Jedi for good.

Muse:  Maybe not.  There’s still Rey…

That’s if Rey decides to follow the ways of the Force.  Did you see all the conversations that she had with Kylo Ren?

Muse:  Yeah.  But that’s…Oops!  Can’t mention that!  That would be a spoiler!

The pacing was good, and with the way that movie ended, I’m curious about how the movie will continue.  Will Episode IX have a new generation of resistance members, and possibly Jedi?

Muse:  Maybe.  I would love to see more Jedi…I can’t wait until Episode IX!

I can’t wait until Episode IX either.  Now the ending,  I really loved the ending.  Luke…

Muse:  Shhh!  Don’t mention the ending!  That was totally epic but a lot of people still haven’t seen it…

Very well.  This will be mostly spoiler-free.  But be fairly warned.  In my review for this movie, there will be spoilers.  Lots of them.  So much so that the review will be prefaced with a spoiler warning.

Muse:  That’s fine.  With having an informal discussion about the movie, I want to make sure that we don’t spoil it for everyone…But yeah.  The ending is really really good.  Tee hee!

Overall, I give the movie a 5 out of 5.  It was a little bit below The Force Awakens but it’s still very epic and action-packed.  It was a really good sequel that continued the saga with Rey, the Resistance, and the First Order.

Muse:  5, huh?  That’s a little bit generous.  I give it a 4.5 out of 5.  For it to earn that extra half star, it really has to grow on me.  And over time, it will.  I know that it will…

Thanks for your comments on the movie.  With that, I will definitely have to see it again.

Muse:  See it again!  I know that I will!  So you’re seeing it again?  I think that I’m going to…And my Princess Leia dress needs to be washed.  It’s stained with popcorn seasoning from nearly a week ago.  See you tomorrow…

I’ll let you do that.

That’s it for the discussion.  Stay tuned for the review!

Until then, I’ll see you shortly for the review!
