Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi’ has the difficult task of being the middle child in the new Star Wars trilogy, but even when it isn’t great, it’s still damn good.

The Force Awakens is first and foremost a film for Star Wars fans. Even the heroes themselves are fans, well-versed in the legends of Luke Skywalker and General Leia. With great performances from the new stars and a director who understands how to deliver a film worthy of its source material, The Force Awakens gives me hope that the new era of Star Wars films will live up to the original trilogy.
It seems like a great idea: a post-9/11 disaster flick with aliens. Unfortunately, Matt Reeves’ Cloverfield begins like an episode of The Hills and looks like the cinematography was done by Britney Spears a la her homemade reality show Chaotic. The hype surrounding this film and the spectacular trailer gave me very high hopes for Cloverfield. It’s too bad that the trailer contains nearly every watchable part.
