Happy Third Lastjediversary

Three years ago today, December 15th 2017, the best Star Wars movie to date — by the director who, to date, showed the best understanding of what Star Wars is about and what it’s for — hit theaters. So this is just a quick appreciation post for Rian Johnson and The Last Jedi, which was so much better than it needed to be, and whose most important themes were, as far as I can tell, immediately and thoughtlessly cast aside as soon as J.J. Abrams came back to the franchise.

I should do a whole-series rewatch soon.
