Over the holidays, I saw the new Star Wars film, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. As a pretty die hard Star Wars and Star Trek fan, I've got to say that it was "just ok" for me. It wrapped the story up, but it just seems like it's something that could have been done in the last movie, but you know, money! In fact, the film was the biggest movie in the world in the holiday box office. Despite being biggest, it opened to fewer people that any other of the new trilogy.
The film's writer and director, J.J. Abrams, told Vanity Fair that the critics are right!
"They’re right.” The director told the Vanity Fair. He further explained “The people who love it more than anything are also right.” Then added, “We knew starting this that any decision we made — a design decision, a musical decision, a narrative decision — would please someone and infuriate someone else. And they’re all right.”
