Kylo Ren Reacts Reviews Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The Last Jedi is rolling through box office barriers.  It’s passed $300 million domestic and $600 million international in gross and it hasn’t even opened in China yet.  The film, however, has sharply divided Star Wars fans as to some of the critical events.  I’ll weigh in with more details on what I thought after the holidays, but here with a VERY SPOILER INTENSIVE REVIEW is none other than Auralnauts’ Kylo Ren.  For Kylo’s thoughts on The Last Jedi going into the film or his review of Rogue One click on the link and enjoy.
