in which I throw a distraction your way

My review of the latest Star Wars movie is going to take a while to write. In the meantime, assuming you've either seen the movie or are okay with spoilers, I'll distract you by asking you to watch this interesting YouTube commentary about "The Rise of Skywalker," which goes over the film's myriad story problems (and offers some side critiques of JJ Abrams's other movies as well including, significantly, his "Star Trek Into Darkness"):

I always feel a bit down after watching such videos because my own review will inevitably cover much the same material, and probably in a more superficial fashion. I'll try my best to give you my unique personal angle, though, so fear not.
