Here’s where I’m at with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it’s quite possibly the best Star Wars film to date! I have a hard time convincing myself that it isn’t. Thematically, this film is PACKED with all the right stuff that make it intriguing and relevant to our culture today, and I believe into the future as well. It’s also beautifully shot.

Without giving away too much, here are a handful of things The Last Jedi is about:

  • Failure as the greatest teacher.
  • Fighting for love not for hate.
  • War not being black and white.
  • Understanding the difference between the man and the legend.
  • Learning it’s not about who you are or where you come from.

That’s how we’re gonna win. Not by fighting what we hate. By saving what we love.
