The Critics (43% of them, anyway) Are Wrong
Last time, the "fans" were wrong, for reasons too numerous to recount here. This time, the critics...the same ones who delighted in the surprises and twists of The Last Jedi...are completely missing the point of The Rise of Skywalker.
Not that anything I say will stop the YouTube Clickbaiters from piling on the vapid hate...but if you are (or were) a fan, go see it and enjoy yourself. And if you go to the movies for any other reason than to enjoy yourself, then I strongly recommend deep introspection.
Thank you JJ — well done!!
