I did not see the first two new Star Wars flicks but the good thing about the Last Jedi was I didn't have to. Parts of it moved kinda slowly and was hard to work out, but it all worked, overall. I LOVE Mark Hamill in this. He and Carrie Fisher were amazing in this movie. RIP Carrie Fisher and I'm so glad she made her last great picture as Princess Leia.
Daisy Ridley was excellent as Rae, the newest Jedi, who tracks down Luke so she can learn from him. First, Luke didn't want to teach her, as he'd retired from Jedi-hood. But thankfully he changed his mind. Meanwhile, the former Ben, Luke's nephew by Leia and Han Solo, went dark and is trying to be the "new" Darth Vader. Unfortunately he killed his father Hans in Rogue One. But Ben and Rae have an amazing telepathic connection and she wants to save him and bring him back to the light. Unfortunately that doesn't happen, at least not this time. I am positive Rae is somebody, maybe Ben's twin like Leia is Luke's? Whatever it is, we'll find out next time. The movie ended with a good suspence-filled twist. LOVED the fight scene with Luke and Ben...reminiscent of Obi Wan and Darth Vader in the first one. Luke IS Obi Wan now, complete with the cloak and hood.
I loved all the characters and their quirks and relationships. Loved Laura Dern with the purple hair. Chewie, C3PO and R2D2 were a joy to see, still their old, classic selves.
This was worth seeing. Not too CGI or otherwise modern-day fluff. Good heart-filled scenes and storylines.
Other thoughts? Go ahead, floor's yours.
