Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Film Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Cast: Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Carrie Fisher, Billie Lourd, Andy Serkis, Oscar Issac, Laura Dern, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kelly Marie-Tran, Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Daniels, Warwick Davies, Frank Oz, Jimmy Vee, Joonas Suotamo, Adrian Edmondson, Mark Lewis Jones, Hermoine Corfield.

You can’t keep a good franchise down; lord knows they tried with the release of the much maligned episodes one and two of the Star Wars saga, but no matter what, eventually the licence to entertain and print money, sell merchandise and hopefully the true point of making a good story realised on screen will see the series continue.

It feels awkward to pull upon a thread which involves Channing Tatum, an actor who can spellbind an audience as Burt Gurney in Hail, Ceasar!, and show absolute aloofness and brilliant cinematic reserve when required in Foxcatcher, and yet to whom will willingly fall back to alleged type on films such as Magic Mike, Jupiter Ascending and White House Down.

So much history is yet truly to be filmed, so many stories, so many acts of heroism, of despair and pivotal moments throughout the times have yet to make it to the screen for it be acknowledged as kind of Universal truth, yet it seems the more we know, the more we have lost, the less there is defining us in the present day.

There is only one thing worse than a poet without a voice, that their means of communication is destroyed by unseen hand and that is when they deny their craft in conversation to another poet, that their resolve or confidence is so low that they pretend or forget that they have spent time in the wordless void as they honed their verse.

One of the biggest problems with humanity is that nothing is truly unique anymore. Our voices are confined with a masking obscurity of soundbites and instant quotes, our actions governed by what has gone before and if by chance something truly exclusive and distinctive is said, it gets tarnished within hours on social media and copied world-wide. In a world where seven billion people inhabit every available bit of land and conscious, to be the one outstanding adult is pretty much impossible, the optimism of this is to only be felt While We’re Young.
