Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Here is my review of this movie. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is entertaining and I have no complaints. I know I might be in the minority but nothing about it was confusing. I don’t think they changed the back story to fit the ending. In a lot of ways the direction they went made a lot of sense.  It also opened up a lot of interesting options for tvshows or one off movies to fill in plot points they referred to in this movie. Spice runner? that entire relationship with Poe and Zorii I think was the characters name could be interesting. I’m not sure how to rate this thing accurately. It’s not my favorite of the star wars films. I don’t think it’s a classic and it shouldn’t rate as my top film of the year. I just can’t find many faults. I liked it. I have no complaints. For me it’s a fairly solid A.

My review is no complaints. I wish I could say that about more films. If I had one thing it is that I’m not a fan of Adam Driver. I didn’t buy the love interest thing. I like Rey with Finn. Normally I find flaws with JJ Abram’s films but not this one. Was it too long? Maybe slightly. They could have shaved five minutes off. But compared to most action films these days this was short.

I liked how it ended and how they wrapped up the saga. But I see an opportunity for a sequel.  so maybe not completely wrapped up.
