The Last Jedi is a great movie. In fact, it's easily the best Star Wars movie of the Disney era. Not only is it action-packed but it also moves the saga forward in a new direction. It can certainly be said that writer-director Rian Johnson had a bit more freedom to tell his story and take risks with the characters. J.J. Abrams simply didn't have that liberty when crafting The Force Awakens, a movie which was tasked with bringing the classic Star Wars experience back to a world that had seemingly moved on since the Prequel Trilogy.

There are many reasons that The Last Jedi is better than The Force Awakens and one of the main ones is that Episode VIII doesn't dwell so heavily on the past. Instead, it answers many of the big questions left over from its predecessor. Oh, and it features a lot more Luke Skywalker! 

Fans will undoubtedly clash over which Star Wars movie is best for the foreseeable future. But for now, the case can easily be made for The Last Jedi.
