So, it’s rumored that Star Wars: The Last Jedi Does Not Suck.

Of course, the people raving about it Not Sucking are mostly the kinds of people who could get to go to a Hollywood premiere. And, let’s be honest: those kinds of people have not been exactly impressing the rest of us with their perceptive abilities and ability to make informed judgments about things lately.  Still, at least one person in this roundup indicated that Things Go Boom, so we’re just gonna have to be hopeful, ya? We’ll find out Tuesday/Friday, when the embargo on reviews lifts / the movie comes out.

New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ footage drops.

I have to say: I’m not exactly questioning Luke’s apparent opinion that this Jedi/Sith thing is played out.  I’m struck, also, by the way you maybe can see how each of the original three main characters seem to reflect the way the people playing them think about Star Wars itself.  Carrie Fisher embraced her iconic status (Leia Organa is, after all, her most famous role); Harrison Ford – who went on to become an A-List actor – came back to make sure that Han Solo didn’t, ever. And Mark Hamill, as befits a man who carved out a second career as a beloved voice actor, is perhaps somewhat refreshingly objective about this movie series*.

Mind you, I’m going to be at the earliest possible morning showing.
