Another year, another Star Wars. This time, we have The Last Jedi, Episode VIII of the Star Wars series, at least the sequential series. While there isn’t a lot that is very original going on here, and it retreads The Empire StrikesBack in much of the same way The ForceAwakens did with the original film and parts of Return of theJedi, it does so far more competently and coherently than Episode VII did, and it’s a fun and engaging movie, visually stunning at times. While John Williams’ score that might not rank at the top of the series’ offerings, it is at the very least par for the course. And, to be fair, how much more can you really do with the Star Wars score at this point, and how much is even needed?
