As an avid Star Wars fan, I’ve been looking forward to the latest installment since the credits rolled on The Force Awakens roughly two years ago. Having seen the movie, I’m honestly still not quite sure what I think about it. It was very well done and probably the best Star Wars film since the original trilogy, yet it’s left the fan in me feeling rather conflicted. I won’t go into the reasons why, as doing so would necessarily involve spoilers I dare not divulge, but Luke Skywalker’s line from the final preview that “this is not going to go the way you think” sums up the movie quite well.
The film picks up right where episode VII ended, with Rey standing face to face with Luke while her resistance counterparts continue their battle against the First Order. The interaction between Luke and Rey, as she tries to convince the Jedi Master to end his exile and join the fight, provide the most interesting moments. That said, every character in the film has a purpose and director Rian Johnson does an excellent job of weaving their stories together in a way that’s unexpected yet seamless.
One of the main themes throughout The Last Jedi is the way in which each of the main characters must decide how their past will influence their future. By the end of the film, each person’s answer will have played a crucial role in determining their part in the story. It becomes clear that ignoring what came before is simply not an option, and the same is true for us as well.
One of the best things about blockbuster movies like Star Wars is that they can provide common ground for people from all walks of life. Judging by the fact that the only film to ever make more than The Last Jedi‘s reported $450 million first weekend was episode VII two years prior, it’s going to be a topic of conversation for some time. As Christians, we should never lose sight of the opportunities that sort of shared experience can offer.
That doesn’t mean taking every…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
