Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi—good movie—does not capture the original magic present in the first 6 Star Wars stories partially due to the overwhelming presence of alien or alien-related stories in the entertainment market. It has tendency to play on the level of a good science fiction movie and uses familiar music and story theme to generate nostalgic interaction with the movie. But that may fail to generate the same enthusiasm for the story for younger audiences as much as for seasoned audiences. Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, and Carrie Fisher perform their character roles at the same level as in the last film while Mark Hamill does not increase the movie’s value. John Boyega creates energy and drives the onscreen charisma. The Star Wars spirit is not present within the iteration of the new films.

The last Jedi refuses to fight or to teach.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This movie sets in place the idea that something better than the Jedi is about to emerge to usher in an entirely new era that does not depend upon resistance as much as something new. It’s a good watch but operates without the magic of the first Star Wars stories produced by George Lucas.
