I ask myself why I have become totally bored with modern day movies...because most of them are dreadful.

Like The Walking Dead but with much better characters, better scenarios and better acting and minus all the Hollywood shit. Most enjoyable Russian style.

A very worthy watch.

Rian Johnson said exactly the same about The Last Jedi and failed. Where Rogue One felt more like the originals than any of the later Star Wars movies, The Last Jedi feels more Disney and more American than ever.
    The acting from Daisy Ridley, Laura Dern and especially amateur dramatics king Domhnall Gleeson is…
