My Version of The Last Jedi: Chapter Thirty-Four

The Battle of Ahch-To

Chewbacca was flying over Ahch-To, his intent gaze scanning the island for Kylo’s command shuttle or Rey, when the cockpit began blaring with alarms. R2-D2 rolled into the cockpit, whistling alarmed. Chewbacca looked at the console and was startled to see two Star Destroyers hovering in orbit. A second later a dozen TIE fighters dipped beneath the hemisphere, aiming straight for the Falcon. With a roar, he turned the Falcon to the right, leading them away from the island.

Sterk observed the hangar with her arms crossed. Something was wrong. She could tell. But she couldn’t quite place her finger on the anomaly. And then she saw it. One of the AV-5 shuttles was missing. Her temples bulged.

“Darn you, Poe Dameron!” she yelled.

‘Free Solo’ Is a Riveting Display of Determination

If you missed it Free Solo is a documentary that follows outstanding rock climber Alex Honnold as he attempts to free solo (that means to climb rocks without the aid of ropes) one of the most difficult rocks in the world, the El Capitan wall located in Yosemite Park.

It’s not very long, just a simple hour and forty-minute documentary, but it is expectedly riveting as we follow Alex’s journey to completing this near-impossible task. The documentary won an Oscar for Best Documentary for a legitimate reason. It was brought into the movie theaters in IMAX for a short time and it deserves it because it truly is the spectacle.

Free Solo (2018)

The wall is an amazing natural structure that now I want to see with my own eyeballs one day. The views presented in this movie are jaw-dropping, the leadup to the big moment when Alex has to complete the climb is riveting, and the level of danger is so high that one can only stare at the screen in awe-inspired horror.

My Conclusion of the Film

Free Solo (2018)

Is it the best documentary I’ve seen? No, but it is definitely one of the best and I’m not even a fan of documentaries. It’s filled to the brim with beautiful imagery and the climax of the movie is clearly the best part. Alex Hannold is amazing, pure and simple. He may be a bit peculiar but that’s what makes him special and able to do these jaw-dropping feats.

At times I found myself on the verge of tears when he was performing the climb because it was so traumatically incredible. Lol. Yeah, the documentary is definitely partially traumatizing.

I’m giving this movie 92 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It truly is a spectacle and totally worth the watch.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day.
