I liked it fine. (Off-Topic)

(and again in The Rise of Skywalker, one of the few things JJ picked up from The Last Jedi and embraced).

In fact, IMHO, JJ used it marvelously.

Yes, it was fantastic, along with the lightspeed skipping scene, which also embraces The Last Jedi and provides a neat (if extremely dangerous) solution to being tracked through lightspeed.

I'm actually eager to see Rise of Skywalker again. There are lots of things I don't like in regards to its treatment of The Last Jedi, but it does actually embrace quite a bit of it, and does some great things with the material. The Rey/Ben connection is fantastic in both movies, and JJ really cranking that up was just brilliant. I hate the kiss, but their character relationship was excellent and well-utilized otherwise.
