  • ‘The Last Jedi’ didn’t ruin my childhood; it was just boring

    Eric Harris

    Movie Critic


    This is a review I never thought I would write. I watched a “Star Wars” movie, and I did not love it. In fact, I barely even liked “The Last Jedi.” Honestly, I have to keep telling myself I liked it.

    My hope is that future viewings will win me over and/or elements of “Episode IX” will complement themes and moments set up in this film. Before I continue, I cannot stress enough how much I wanted to like this movie. I have never felt this conflicted after watching a movie.
