Old dependable Star Wars, eh?
It comes around like clockwork, and each time the assembled fandom collectively welcomes the latest offering into their hearts to treasure for all time.

So, two years after the film’s release and two weeks before ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ hits the cinemaplex, WHINE+SPACE sit down to look back at Episode VIII, looking at its strengths, its flaws - and trying to decide what it is about the film that produced such diverse and passionate views.
Buckle up - we’ve got a bad feeling about this!
