This is my “2 years later” look at The Last Jedi, a film made by a director dedicated to shitting on everything that was handed him, including a large number of set-ups by JJ Abrams. A second (less emotional) look made me see the whole thing as petty and spiteful. He didn’t just ignore these “mystery boxes,” he purposefully destroyed their capacity to provide an interesting plot twist.
Did JJ band Rian’s wife or something? Or is it just that Star Wars as a whole offended Johnson?
You can get my newest book, Eyes in the Walls, for 99 cents on Amazon, and get my HUGE collection of fantasy books (10 in all) for just $9.99 through the end of December, when it will be de-published forever.
