Pop Culture Detective’s Video Essay on ‘The Last Jedi’

There are many people (mostly men) on the internet that didn’t like The Last Jedi. I think this video does a beautiful job of explaining why. The Last Jedi is constantly challenging masculinity, what it means to be a man, and what it means to be a hero.

And yes, just like any other film, there are always things that could be better. But the overall message of the movie is a positive one. It’s one of inclusivity; it’s one of equality. I hope J. J. Abrams’ “course correction” with Episode IX follows that path.
