Aside

I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi this afternoon and I’m still digesting what I think of it. On the whole I enjoyed it; Carrie Fisher really stole the show whereas I found Mark Hamill’s performance was sorta ‘meh’. It was also a strangely *small* movie, in terms of approximately how little time passes over the course of events. It definitely feels like an episode of something as opposed to a self-contained and ‘complete’ film in its own right.

It’s pretty amazing to see what Star Wars might have looked like if George Lucas’ initial script and the original designs had been adopted (and made with contemporary computer generated images!). Imagine how much more interesting it would have been had a young woman, instead of a male, protagonist been responsible for saving everything!
