THE LAST JEDI Was A Star Wars Fan's Star Wars Film... Until It Wasn't

It's been a year since the release of the eighth "saga" Star Wars film, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi, and I still don't get it. Not the movie -- I "got" the movie by about its 2-hour mark -- but...

Friday One Sheet: SHAZAM! (And the Deadpool Effect)
