The end of an era; not with a whimper, but also not with a bang. Instead, we got a "good enough" and a feeling that things could have been a lot better if Disney had actually put a plan in place from day one.
A beautifully different entry into the Star Wars franchise which will hopefully see the sequels grow into something unique and much more interesting than might otherwise have been.
A spectacular and surprisingly intimate look at the characters that usually lurk in the background combines to form an excellent addition to the growing franchise.
A lacklustre adventure that serves as a useful set up for the TV series but little more.
A competent fleshing out of the wider Star Wars narrative in a way that gives a lot of much-loved characters room to breath. Nicely builds on the themes of the prequels whilst setting in play the themes of the original trilogy at the same time.
A beautifully directed, brilliantly acted Western set in space and one of the best entries to the Star Wars canon since the original trilogy.
