Three sentence movie reviews: Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Year two of two I’ve fallen asleep during a Star Wars movie.* However, I enjoyed the parts I was awake for (I missed the First Law of the Jedi, or something like that?) I thought were very well done, especially since the plot divided our main characters for most of the film. There were some good fight scenes,** the final battle was stunning, and in this “me too” era, it was incredibly empowering to see so many women driving the plot arc of the Star Wars universe.
Cost: Matt paid for us both, because he was tired of my kibbitzing about movie prices and just wanted to see the film. His total price: $19.90
Where watched: Regal Lloyd Center. We attempted the Baghdad, but it was sold out. I was angling for our usual Regal Vancouver City Center, which is cheaper on Sundays. This was the theater in between the two, geographically, with a convenient showtime.
*To be fair, the hours of 1:00-3:00 PM are not the best for me in terms of: alive, awake, alert, enthusiastic.
**This coming from a person who isn’t enamored with fight scenes

I am looking forward to this movie. I had assumed that much of the grousing about the film was a matter of sexism more than an issue with the plot. Good thing Matt quieted your worries about $$.
