The Force Awakens was a fun homage to A New Hope that did a fine job kicking off this new Star Wars trilogy. It introduced new characters, serviced fans with old characters, and set up new mysteries within the series.
The Last Jedi made no attempt to solve these mysteries (who’s Snoke? What’s Rey’s lineage?) and barely addressed them at all.
Mowgli and Sara went into this movie with high hopes but were left confused, angry, and with more questions than answers. Still going to see Episode IX when it comes out, obviously.
