Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, B+.
I was very relieved. Having read a lot online before hand I was expecting a dog's dinner of a mess. Overall, it wasn't bad...in fact, I'd say it has quite a lot that's good about it. After The Last Jedi, JJ had a real task on his hands to salvage something from this disappointing trilogy. Unfortunately he was left too much to fit into one film to make this a cohesive trilogy and tie up loose ends. As a result everything feels so rushed and crammed in. Far better than The Last Jedi. Possibly better than The Force Awakens. Too many coincidences, unnecessary McGuffins, pointless characters and too much reliance on nostalgia to be a great Star Wars film.
In my opinion far better than Solo: A Star Wars Story, but not as good as Rogue One.
