It may be different than the previous films of the franchise, and that willingness to take risks and not play safe is great and refreshing, but this is very much still 'Star Wars' and the quality is there. The first hour, although very good, does seem a bit uneventful, the film moves slower than you would expect but those mistakes (if you can call them that) are easily compensated and forgotten by the last hour and a half of the film, which is nothing but amazing. You know those films that make you feel many things at once? That's what 'The Last Jedi' did for me. I got chills when an iconic moment would happen (and believe me, there are several) and I'm not even one to get all emotional while watching a film, but there were moments where I actually teared up a little. Mainly because of Carrie Fisher but even aside from that, I think those moments all felt genuine and perfectly placed in where they were. It was very touching and such a nice way to say goodbye to some characters. However, what truly had me dying on the floor were the breathtaking scene in which a ship (whithout spoiling) enters light speed and, of course, the final confrontation. I'm absolutely in love with the cinematography, the way each detail was placed in the image, the contrast between the red and the white, the soundtrack and the twists. That was a brilliant ending that had my jaw constantly dropping on the floor. Epic. There's no other way to describe it but as an emotional and epic ride that should get more praise than the one it's receiving by the public. Maybe in a few years people will appreciate it, I hope so.
Expanding the world of its predeccessors by adding new places, new creatures and further develoling the already known characters and with some surprise appearances, 'The Last Jedi' is an unfairly criticized sequel that tops many of the films that came before it, and it might actually be my favorite 'Star Wars' so far. 9.8/10

The UT-60D U-wing Starfighter/Support Craft (Lore)
This was a transport/gunship model manufactured by Incom Corporation and used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. Used to drop troops into battle, and provide cover fire for them, U-wings were pivotal in transport and protection of the Rebel Alliance's ground forces during the Battle of Scarif.
The UT-60D was one of the last to be produced by Incom Corporation before it was nationalized by the Galactic Empire. Due to this, the U-wing never enjoyed a full production run. A "lost" shipment of U-wings ended up in the hand of the Rebel Alliance after the careful manipulation of Senate records by Bail Organa. The rarity of the craft made them all the more valuable to the Rebel cause.
U-wings had two wing-like strike foils, or S-foils, they were retractable and could be positioned forward or backward facing, depending on the situation. The backward facing, or flight configuration was used in combat situations as it increased the coverage envelope of the ship's deflector shields and helped radiate excess heat from the engine's core. The increased wingspan however, was often turned into an obstacle by rough atmospheric conditions resulting in the flight configuration primarily being reserved for high altitude and interstellar operations. U-wings were unusual in the fact that they were equipped with tandem controls. This allowed the craft to be operated by a single pilot or by a flight team of two.
The U-wing was created and developed for the 2016 Star Wars film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Concept art for the ship was first revealed at the Rogue One panel at Celebration Anaheim. As the "hero ship", the craft went through hundreds of design iterations before the final was decided on. It was originally intended to be a helicopter-sized craft attached to the hero's main ship, but they moved away from the larger ship and focused on the smaller craft.
What do you think of the U-Wing and what do you want to see next? Comment below and let me know!
