Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ★★★½

Ugh, this movie gets worse and worse with each viewing. Everything about this movie feels rushed and incoherent. There are a couple of nice scenes and the acting (especially Ridley) is great. But the way Abrams treats potentially great characters like Finn and Rose is inexcusable. And Ben and Rey kissing is awful and unintentionally funny at the same time.

And after a fourth rewatch i can finally say, 'bringing back Palpatine was a huge mistake'. Same goes for Rey Palpatine (Even writing this gives me a shudder). I've watched this movie four times now, and i don't think there will be a fifth time. 3.5*, but i'am very generous.
