    Star Wars: The Last Jedi
    Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick) wrote and directed this installment of the Star Wars saga, which picks up where The Force Awakens left off. Rey (Daisy Ridley) learns the ways of the Force from Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), and develops a telepathic bond with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), who is struggling to master the Dark Side. Meanwhile, Stormtrooper-turned-Resistance fighter Finn (John Boyega) teams up with pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and maintenance worker Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) for a risky mission behind enemy lines. Carrie Fisher, Domhnall Gleeson, Benicio Del Toro, Gwendoline Christie, and Laura Dern co-star. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

      Narrative Mess with Nice Visuals and Decent Action

      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I really don't want this review to be part of the Fan Wars surrounding this movie, so I'm trying to take it on its own merits. If you go to movies for the story, and especially for character development, you probably won't find a lot to love here. Characters' decisions seem more driven by what might surprise the audience or what moves the plot in the correct direction than something an actual human being would do in a given circumstance. What attempts there are to show character growth, are almost inevitably undercut by actual events of the film. For example, one character is chastised early on for launching a risky attack that jeopardizes people lives for a tactical advantage. At the end of the film, he calls off a second attack because he's learned that people matter more than beating the enemy. In isolation, this seems fine, but in the context of the moment, continuing with the attack was the only realistic hope of preserving the remaining members of the Resistance. You can see the writer's intention to establish character growth, but the execution is strangely self-defeating. There are also some basic plotting problems, including a nearly hour-long sequence spent planetside that has zero actual impact on the main plot. Disturbingly (and hopefully coincidentally), all nonwhite characters including fan-favorite Finn, newcomer Rose, and the mysterious rogue played by Benicio Del Toro, are shunted into this essentially pointless narrative aside. They are there prevented from contributing to the central struggle in any meaningful way until that second risky attack, which, again, is called off to show another character's supposed growth. In the end, victory--such as it is--is achieved through a thinly-justified deus ex machina rather than any conscious decision by a character, which is another classic narrative "sin." While the story is a bit of a bloated mess, you can't deny that the visuals are very well done. Locations and visual setpieces are impressive and immediately iconic. Ship-to-ship combat sequences are also thrilling, though person-to-person struggles are more of a mixed bag, with the lightsaber sequences in particular feeling a little disjointed and *ahem* forced. Taken in isolation, this isn't the terrible movie some pretend. If you can overlook the narrative, there's some solid action and sumptuous visuals to enjoy here. If you've had fun watching the Transformers series in theaters, chances are you'll enjoy this one too, Two Stars: "Fair" by Best Buy's rating system.

      Your ego hates The Last Jedi

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      In the original Star Wars trilogy, the distinction between good and evil is stark and uncomplicated. Even in the Han-shoots-first version of Star Wars, it's abundantly clear Greedo was a threat. By the time we get to Return of the Jedi, whatever is supposed to entice Luke to join the Dark Side is a mystery to us, because Luke's status as unwavering hero has been mercilessly cemented. The Last Jedi is more complicated than that. Its bad guy is ego, which exists in our heroes and villains alike. The Last Jedi then takes it a hundred steps further by tying the audience to the ego, forcing us to experience the characters' failures more acutely than we're probably used to. When we first meet our eponymous last Jedi, Luke Skywalker, he is arguably aligned with the film's detractors: casually tossing his lightsaber off the edge of a cliff, he believes that this garbage has gone on too long and should just die already. He refuses to have anything to do with Rey or any of this new stuff, though he is happy to see Chewie and R2. But he's also a disappointment, to both us and himself, for not living up to the legacy established by the end of Return of the Jedi. His self-loathing affords him the arrogance that he alone gets to decide whether the Jedi live or die, for there will there be no return of the glory days, if there were any glory days in the first place. Kylo Ren is of particular interest because we feel the pain of his being right. He possesses the same self-importance found in Luke, but never got the same recognition. As in The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren is starved for approval -- which he has never received, either from Snoke (who is always quick to point out his shortcomings) or Luke (who tried to murder him in his sleep). The fact is, Ben Solo did deserve more than he ever got, which is not easy for us to accept in a villain. This ego-audience melding is chiefly apparent in Poe Dameron. When we first meet him in The Force Awakens, he sasses the bad guy ("Who talks first? Do I talk first?") and eventually goes on to destroy their weapons with his devil-may-care hotshot ways. The Last Jedi begins no differently: sassing the bad guy ("I'm holding for General Hugs?") and defying orders to take 'em out. Except this time, though successful in his attack on the First Order, he gets a lot of people killed. Leia is quick to point out his lack of understanding of true leadership and demote him, and though we're rooting for Poe, we know Leia's right (Leia's always been right). Naturally, we want Poe to be in a position to redeem himself. So when Admiral Holdo shows up out of nowhere (and Poe describes her as "not what I expected"), of course Poe should question her orders! We know Poe is a good guy, and we don't know this Holdo at all! So instead of passing along Rose and Finn's discovery that the First Order has a hyperspace tracker, he keeps it a secret and sends Rose and Finn on a mission to find the "master codebreaker." This plan turns out badly. And it's the second viewing of The Last Jedi in which this becomes painfully clear. We're so tied to Poe that we forget Admiral Holdo has a reputation as an adept military strategist. We're very forgiving of Poe's acts of heroism -- even this last effort that got everyone killed. But just like Poe, our ego is in the way: from nearly every perspective outside of Poe's, Holdo is the war hero, and Poe is the one who got everyone killed yesterday. Holdo and the rest of the ship are sweating bullets to deal with a crisis they only have one shot at, and this belligerent, insubordinate narcissist storms onto the bridge to proclaim he doesn't approve of a plan he only partially understands. Finally, there's Finn. Finn has a similar arc to Poe's: His own heroic intentions belie an understanding of the bigger picture, but Finn (and the audience) gets his most direct lesson from DJ. After failing to acquire the master codebreaker in the (sorta uninspired but I get it) casino and finding themselves trapped in a holding cell, Rose and Finn meet DJ, a low-rent codebreaker that we know they shouldn't really trust except what other choice do they have. DJ is the ambivalent moral compass of The Last Jedi: He literally tells Finn that there is no clear distinction between good guys and bad guys. Some bad guys are good. Some good guys are bad. He's describing Poe Dameron. He's describing Luke Skywalker. He's describing Kylo Ren. He's describing literally every person ever. And he is, of course, describing himself. After selling them out to the First Order, DJ explains to Finn, "It's just business." Finn says, "You're wrong." But DJ knows the truth. He knows the truth about business, he knows about ego, he knows about morality and the uncertainty of certainty. With minimal hesitation, he gives Finn and Rose - and us - all the codebreaking we require. DJ is the philosophy of The Last Jedi wrapped up into one single word. He tells them: "Maybe."

      Visually Appealing, But A Downer

      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      I did not get to see this movie in theaters when it was released due to a disability that I have. I was able to pre-purchase it before the DVD release via VUDU and streamed it through my 4k UHD 65" television. Yes, the action and visual spectacles were there I must admit. The expansion of the new characters were presented more thoroughly and new characters were added. I do plan to purchase the 4k UHD DVD for the sake of having a physical copy for my collection. I have my Best Buy Reward Zone points to pay for a chunk of the cost. :). I am a big fan of Best Buy and it is evident by my being an Elite Plus member. *Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven't already seen the movie.* However, in relation to this episode, one of our beloved characters was cut out for a chunk portion of the movie that I would have loved to seen more of. And, another made the ultimate sacrifice at the ending which I feel could have been done in a different way to keep the character alive for the next installment. Yes, it is still possible to see this character in the next film. I really just don't want to see that character in the way that has been speculated in Episode 9. In the Empire Stikes back, Han Solo was frozen in carbonite and was being taken to Jabba the Hut for the bounty, but that movie left hope for the next installment of possibly saving him. This one did not leave "Hope", for the one character that has been a beacon in Episodes 4 through 6. It also took the the use of "The Force" way beyond what it was used for in past episodes. The top main powerful live villain in this episode, nor the ones in previous episodes, did not project their image through the use of "The Force". They were projected from holographic imaging devices. I thought this new way of projecting images of a live character was a little far-fetched. Sadly, the loss of Carrie Fisher leaves no hope of her character's return in Episode 9. That is unless she had already filmed her scenes for the next episode that we are not aware of, which I highly doubt. I did not suspect that this episode would end up the way that it did and I was highly disappointed. The ending was a downer to me and it left no hope for one character's live return in the next, and supposedly, last installment of this trilogy. That is really all that I have to say about this film. It is my own personal opinion and likely will not reflect those of others. That is why I am giving this film 3-stars, and only for the action, visualization, and John Williams touch with the music. I am only recommending this to friends just for the sake of keeping up with what has gone on before the next movie is released.

      For whats been done to starwars, it isn't that bad


      I loved the original Trilogy (IV, V, VI). I was excited for the prequels. I went and saw Episode I, and came back irritated at midiclorians. Episode II and III came out and I came to appreciate how Episode I wasn't that bad after all. I'll take little Anakin and Jar Jar over watching Hayden Christensen act, midiclorians and all. Now, we get a continuation of the saga! Yes, keep the past in the past, and lets move on! Wait... we are throwing away all the novels that have kept the star wars universe alive despite the horrible prequels, and calling them non-canon so you can rewrite things? This means you've got a better plan, right? Not really. Episode VII, beautifully filmed, like Prometheus and Valerian, I wanted to love the movie because of the stunning visuals, the beautiful sets and worlds... but have to watch it on mute with no subtitles on to not be put off by bad writing and acting. Episode VII seemed to borrow way too heavily from Episode IV, and in the way it was laid out, left a lot of unanswered questions: Who is Ray? Who are her parents? Why is she so Force sensitive? Who is Snoke? Why is he so powerful? Where did he come from? Why is he the Supreme Leader? Why is there even a resistance when the Republic is still in existence? Shouldn't the Republic BE the Resistance? Why is Luke hiding? Find out in Episode VIII... maybe. Episode VIII come out, and again, its beautifully filmed with as much physical effects as it can have, but it doesn't answer the questions very well if at all. We find out why Luke is in hiding as a hermit. This disappoints many people that Luke isn't heroic and they call him a coward, but who did he learn this behavior from? Obi-Wan hid out on Tatooine and let the Empire rule. Yoda hid out on Dagobah and watched the Empire and Vader rule. Both powerful masters who for some reason hid themselves away when they could have been useful and had to be pulled from their hiding spot. So is it really that hard to believe that Luke would do the same? It may not be what fans WANTED him to do, but it was exactly what he was TRAINED to do. Then we get absolutely no information about Snoke, Luke doesn't even tell us that he knows who he was, and he never even picks up a lightsaber. Supreme... why exactly? Ray's lineage is a big letdown, unless its a lie, kind of like "Wanna know how I got these scars?" from the Joker. Is it a lie to manipulate her, or is it a big reveal that there is no big reveal? Will we find out in the next episode that they really were someone important? Ben Solo left with a handful of students we find out when Luke tells the story... where are those students? Will they show up in Episode IX? Where did those students that Luke was teaching come from? Will that be another "A Starwars Story" like Rogue One? I'd watch that. What bothered me the most (aside from bad space logic) was the other main characters and what truly felt like filler so they weren't sitting there twiddling their thumbs while they just slowly did a White Bronco space chase. Why did they drop out of hyperspace in that spot? Was it a random choice? Why were their fuel reserves so low? We had to slog through pointless side quests while we waited for the scenes that contained Jedi and Sith, honestly. I didn't mind the Jedi and Sith storyline. That was good, enjoyable, and didn't have to drag out for 2 hrs and 45 minutes. The parts I enjoyed, I truly enjoyed. The parts I didn't, I will likely heat up a burrito or pop some popcorn or make a sandwich and let it play when watching it at home. This one truly didn't feel like a rehash of episode V... I was relieved that Ray or Ben didn't lose a body part. For the first time in these movies after the original Trilogy, I have no idea where this last film will go. I don't know what direction they will take it, I know where I want it to go, but I don't know if it will go that direction or not, and that is at least a bit refreshing after Episode I, II, III, VII. I recommend watching it, even if you never watched the prequels. Watch VII only so you know whats going on in VIII, and then decide if the moments you enjoy are enough to warrant buying it and waiting for IX.

      Rent it first


      I've been a Star Wars fan for 40 years. I raised 3 children with these movies and they are also fans. This is honestly the first Star Wars movie I really, really did not like. I had no "fan theories" or expectations other than wanting to see another great Star Wars movie. "Liking" anything is subjective. But the fanbase is split down the middle on this. It is the lowest rated Star Wars movie ever on Rotten Tomatoes at 49% (as of 1/12/18) and no they have not been botted. Rogue One and The Force Awakens (in which a major change takes place) are both rated in the 80's. IMDB has this movie at 7.5 (started at 8.3). It is only rated above Episode I and II at the moment. Metacritic is 4.6. This is not a few angry people unwilling to let go of favorite characters or move on without George Lucas (see The Force Awakens and Rogue One ratings as I said). 50% of the people who saw this movie do not like it for whatever reason. I liked the score (John Williams is always brilliant), cinematography is beautiful, and it has some high points for me. However the bad is so overwhelmingly bad to me I really do not like this movie. Had it not been a Star Wars movie I still would not have liked this movie. It's not the cast because not only the older, seasoned actors shine in places, Adam Driver is truly a gem. I've seen two more of his movies since this one. It is the script, the direction. My suggestion before you decide to purchase it is to rent it somewhere first. Video store, library, whatever. IF you are in the 50% that loves it, by all means buy it. But don't spend your money until you find out first. I'm happy for the people who loved it. I'm actually quite jealous to have come away from a Star Wars movie without that experience. I'm happy I have 8 movies out of 9 that I really enjoy (including Rogue One). But this is not one of them.

      Bad batch of 4k disc in Portland area

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      This review is to report that there seems to be a bad batch of the Star Wars The Last Jedi 4k disc being sold in the Portland, OR area. The first 4k disc I bought at the Tualatin store stopped playing at chapter 26. After inspecting the disc it was dirty/smugged in several places and had a small line/crack on the playing surface. I took it back to a different store in Cedar Hills. Store policy says they have to open replacement movies (for fraud purposes), and that replacement 4k disc was also smudged/dirty with even more lines/cracks. The store staff was at this point very confused an unsure what to do. We opened a 3rd 4k disc and while it was a bit smudged it didn't have any real lines/cracks but the outer edge didn't look quite right either. I ended up taking the 3rd disc home and let it play through a couple of times. I own over a dozen 4k disc, hundreds of blurays and dvd's and none have ever come out of the packaging dirty and cracked. There is some sort of serious quality control issue at the disc printing/packaging company. As far as the movie itself goes, I was less impressed with the Dolby Vision on this on my LG OLED TV than I have been with other movies such as Transformers The Last Night. There was too much movie grain for my liking and it was hard to really feel or see the difference in the graphics. I will watch the bluray companion disc that will be upscaled by player to see if I can tell the difference. Typically it is a very big difference. Fate of the Furious was noticeably better on 4k than bluray. I saw this movie in the theaters but from a story stand point I really didn't need or want to watch it again. It wasn't fun. The attempts at humor in this movie were not appropriate for a star wars franchise. I don't need a 'your momma' joke in star wars...thanks.

      Overall disappointment

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      What a disappointment. Watch the Blu-ray bonus section, and on several occasions you'll hear actor Mark Hamill dispute the direction of his character, Luke Skywalker, as defined by writer/director Rian Johnson. Mark is absolutely correct in his assessment. Johnson decided to put his ego and politics first, and gave us a Luke Skywalker in name only. Johnson and the Disney executives who approved this film should have all been replaced before it was released. They appear to have no idea why the original trilogy worked so well. You can't throw together a group of unrelated characters, mimic scenes from a previous trilogy, update special effects, slap them together, and expect a good story or film. Is it too much to expect consistent character behavior from the veterans of the original trilogy? Apparently so. Is it too much to expect new characters to make sense in the story, and be believable with their roles? Again, apparently so. I laughed when I watched the miscast Laura Dern. Yoda's behavior in this film contradicts the wise, deliberate sage we saw in the original trilogy. And Luke? Kidding, you must be. It's clear that Luke and Leia were being phased out of the series, to be replaced with new, younger actors. OK, I'll buy that. But we deserved one last time for Luke and Leia to work together throughout the movie, and remind us why they were so successful in the original trilogy. We expected to see them take active leadership roles, and pass their wisdom and experience on to new, younger characters. Instead we got a movie dominated by a mishmash of new characters who have no idea what they're doing, playing out a number of ridiculous scenes (such as the bombing run, or the death of Snoke), with a lost soul named Luke dragging this film down until the end. No, it's not all negative. There are some great scenes here as well, and some great visuals. The music was perfect. And it must be noted that Daisy Ridley is quite an actor - she was brilliant. But overall, the story and its "direction" (and the lost Luke Skywalker) left me yearning for the real Star Wars. Finally, as others have noted, this film is infested with politics and political stereotyping, that do not belong here. Apparently the original trilogy is the best we'll ever see, and the last of the real Star Wars.

      Decent, but not Star Wars


      The movie was entertaining, and if you're looking at it from a pure sci-fi standpoint, OK. If you're looking at it as a Star Wars film, it's the worst one. I consider it beneath Phantom Menance (which is not as bad as Attack of the Clones to me, anyway--but Last Jedi is beneath THAT, too). I get it. All the younger people think it's fantastic that Star Wars is 'inclusive' and 'geared toward a new generation.' Good for you. Problem is, I'm only 40. I'm not old, I'm not dead, and I'm sure not ready to say Star Wars should no longer be for classic fans. You take the couple of Han and Leia and break them apart for the last movie. Tough to swallow, but I'll deal. Then you make the bad guy a wuss who gets beat easily by an untrained, whiny girl with no believable power. Stupid, but I'll ignore it. Now you take the hero, the man we've all been waiting decades to see come back in Luke Skywalker, and you destroy his character. Ridiculous. Not only is he a hermit (so was Obi-Wan, but for a completely believable reason), he's bitter (not light-hearted like Obi-Wan or Yoda) and doesn't even show the level of power he should (beyond a force projection?) This movie was clearly written to destroy the old and pave the way for the new. Problem is, the old was better--not because it was older, but because it's better. Luke is better than Rey. Period. Rey is a poor lead character. Lando is better than Rose. Period. Rose is a waste of a new character (we didn't have enough 'inclusion' that we had to add another for no reason?) Finn is good so I'm fine with him replacing Han. Poe is OK but was not handled well in this movie. Kylo Ren is great, but again, the writers don't seem to know what to do here. Now with Carrie Fisher's passing, we have nobody from the classic movies, unless some serious re-writing is done. Otherwise, I won't be interested in Episode IX. Everyone else seems to adore this movie, but are they true fans of the classic movies, or do they just love to see things go in a new direction just to make it go in a new direction? The bottom line is, is this for classic Star Wars fans? No.
