'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' review: Rey and the Resistance prove irresistible

Great fun, and a reminder that unpopular political leaders mock the Resistance in other galaxies, too, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" boasts a bald-faced lie of a subtitle – sorry, folks, last Jedi, no more "Star Wars" movies! – and special guest appearances from some old, familiar faces. The oldest of them utters a very funny line about the sacred Jedi religious texts being the opposite of page-turners.

These books command, not capture, your attention

The new Chris Ware book has sat beside my desk for weeks. It's been tough to miss. It's about a foot-and-a-half tall with a canary-yellow spine, and the cover image is signature Ware: Comic book hieroglyphics of domestic ennui, linked by thin schematic lines, flow charts of word balloons and worried portraits of the Oak Park, Ill., genius himself. It's like the blueprints for a bomb that leaves you melancholy. Even if I wanted to avoid it, I couldn't: My desk is only slightly larger than the book, yet "Monograph" ($60, Rizzoli), a survey of an artist who turns only 50 this month, is perfectly outsized, correctly singular.
