THE GOOD

Cool critter and vehicle design plus incredibly epic and emotional scenes that are the essence of Star Wars, coupled with character revelations and plot twists that spin the franchise in new directions and force you to rethink what you thought you knew about a galaxy far, far, away.

rrrrrrr

THE BAD

Excessive humor of a type inappropriate to the franchise, uninspired alien design, an prequel-esque planet, a ponderous plot, an unexpected and particularly off-putting SFX visual representation of a beloved icon that should work but just doesn’t, a few hammed-up performances and a series of contrived circumstances that rival the prequels in their ham-fisted execution.

Aliens

THE UGLY

Fanboy reactions and the fear that the next film will backpedal and transform TLJ’s spin into a crash and burn in order to get it back on its overwrought cyclical track.

AND THE SPOILED

Space Walrus milk. Likely spoiled, definitely gratuitous.
Do not want.
