Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

The beach would be the perfect place to spend a day if it weren't for all that sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Fortunately, there's an easy way to prevent sand from getting on, inside and around things you don't want it going near.

The first time I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I left the cinema with a big, dumb grin on my face. I began trying to place it at the top of the list of Star Wars films. The next day, I saw The Last Jedi again. I was still excited by it, but instead of leaving giddy and excited, I felt a pang of discontent.

The Last Jedi has a major problem.

Today, Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases in cinemas. I was lucky enough to head to a preview last night and aside from the usual questions I had ("How delicious would a Porg be?") one of the (many) things I was thinking was "Damn, Luke lives on one of the most stunning islands I've ever seen, I want to go there."

And I can.

Because it's a real place on Earth.

I don’t know that 2017 was that bad, was it? Haven’t we reached some sort of terrible plateau where each year just remains as horribly bad as the last? Or are we sinking ever further?

I don’t know.

This isn’t about that. This is about all the good things I enjoyed in 2017.

You may think you know some of the most iconic lines from classic movies, but your ears or memory may be deceiving you. If you’ve been going around quoting Darth Vader as saying, “Luke, I am your father,” you’ve been doing it all wrong. And if you think Clint Eastwood asked a robber "do you feel lucky, punk?", that’s not the case at all.

You'd think it wouldn't be surprising that a movie that begins with the words “a long time ago” is in fact about the past, but here we are. By now, it's clear that Disney's Star Wars sequel trilogy (Episodes 7, 8, and 9) is defined primarily by its relationship to the past -- and that Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi is doing its best to upend everything about how this works. The Last Jedi is a Star Wars film, but not how we know it. The key to all of this is history.
