The Last Jedi reaction - NO SPOILERS inside

So here we are, It is now Thursday 14th December and I have been to see Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. This piece is a reaction piece only and contains NO SPOILERS.

WOW, what a film. The Last Jedi delivers in spades. There is action, humour, sadness, it's an emotional rollercoaster with twists and turns where you don't expect them. This was much much better than The Force Awakens. As usual John Williams turns in another classic score as a backdrop to the universe we know and love.

Rian Johnson has done a brilliant job with this film and I can now see why Lucasfilm have entrusted him with doing another trilogy of films. JJ Abrams has a very high standard to reach for Episode IX after Johnson's fantastic Episode VIII.

If you are a Star Wars fan you won't regret going to see this. We are already planning return visits.

...and it turns out the porgs were just kind of cute and weren't annoying like I had feared.
