When the hospital ship runs out of propellant, it gets slower and starts tilting to the back without any apparent outside influence. This would not happen to any object in space that simply stops being propelled - it would continue on its exact trajectory until stopped by reverse thrust our outside force. See more »
Johnson's fresh touch and Hamill's magnificent performance make for a film which is thrilling, clever, funny and heartbreaking at its best moments
I attended an advanced press screening of the movie a few hours ago. It won me over! And bear in mind that I hated "The Force Awakens" (honestly thought it was a Episode IV rip-off). Here, director Rian Johnson doesn't play it safe, and it pays off. If I must point out a certain highlight, it's without a doubt Mark Hamill's performance. I really admired his ability to convincingly convey so many different emotions throughout the film; hats off to this guy. I'll be rooting for him in the future.
After I had seen "The Force Awakens", I figured out I would never like a new Star Wars movie again. Boy, was I wrong. I loved "The Last Jedi"! This film had clever humour (there was a certain hilarious moment between General Hux and Kylo Ren that I couldn't stop laughing at; you'll totally know when you see the film yourselves), good cinematography and great characters (just see how developed Benicio Del Toro's minor character is) that I could care about. It also had a very good plot for the most part, with many unpredictable and surprising elements. The action was good, and the fighting scenes even better (great choreography).
Although the ideas weren't always original, the experience felt real. Therefore, I often struggled to control my emotions. It was the ideal farewell to Carrie Fisher.
I mean, what more could I ask for?
