Star Wars: The Last Jedi second opinion: Yup, it’s still awesome!

Yesterday the much-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit the world like a juggernaut spaceship. Kervyn was blown away by it, as you can tell! Thing is, Kervyn has been drawn to the Dark Side since the first movie hit us 40 years ago, so you can never tell if he is just trying to do the same to you. Here’s what that big nerd had to say:

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi may not be as perfect as some reviewers would have you believe, but there’s no denying just how a good film writer/director Rian Johnson has produced here. Boasting a script that keeps you guessing and gasping in equal measure, along with gloriously filmed action beats – both on land and in space – and a heavy dose of palpable emotion, this is everything you want in a Star Wars movie and more.”

As somebody who is more a casual Star Wars fan and not a fanatic, I take it upon myself then to balance his Dark Side with my ginger Light Side. So what did I think? Well, have a watch below, and don’t worry, no spoilers!

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
