For the final Film Club of 2017, A.V. Club film editor A.A. Dowd and staff writer Ignatiy Vishnevetsky are discussing what is sure to be the biggest film of the year, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Although itā€™s the middle chapter of the sequel trilogy, The Last Jedi avoids being a retread of The Empire Strikes Back, thanks to strong performances from Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley, confident directing from Rian Johnson, and a reclamation of the values that made the original trilogy great.
