Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker (Short Movie Review)
Positives:

  • Palpatine's return felt silly
  • The movie seems more focused on undoing TLJ rather than telling it's own coherent story
  • Underwhelming conclusion to the Skywalker Saga (This is probably the worst thing of all... this was to be the final Skywalker Chapter, it could and should have been better and more epic than this)


(Very light spoiler)
