    I bet Snoke will get his origin story in a book.

    Interesting and much better than the Force Awakens.

    Went to see it today in 4DX. Great fun, first time I've been to that type of screening and I immediately turned the water off after getting a gob of it in the face.

    A bit miffed they basically did the Battle of Hoth (but it's salt this time!).

    I really like that they showed 'new' force powers, some of which are from the source material and some of which are prominent in the KOTR games. Yoda was cute, and I got the sense that it was a bit like in Thor: Ragnarok - the Jedi/Sith isn't about temples and books, it's about people doing the right or wrong thing with the Force. It'd be good if the force users in the galaxy became heroes/villains for their own sake, rather than identifying with a philosophy.

    I really like they gave a nod to how a sith and jedi 'completes' their training - a sith has to kill a jedi and take their lightsaber, and a jedi has to build their own - so Rey getting the broken saber at the end to rebuild was fun. I avoided the last two trailers like the plague and the story kept me guessing, the tension between Ray and Kylo came off well, and seeing Organa use her force powers finally (beyond her intuition and telepathy) was epic.

    More! More!

    Though...I think the film should've ended when the AT-AT stomped in front of Luke.

    'We've got them by a string Supreme Leader'.

    The context of their discussion is right in the movie! That guy's dumb -_-.

    The whole premise of the movie is dumb. We already established that technology existed to track ships through lightspeed in ANH. This is set, what, 30 years later? It was a ridiculous macguffin, which led to the most unnecessary film sequence (and characters - the tech person and the codebreaker), and ruined the movie for me. Screenplay would received a 45/100 from Dirks. Y'all have written better tournament threads.

    This movie disappointed me TERRIBLY.

    PRO'S
    - The direction of the movie was beautiful - the worlds created were spectacular, and I thought the balance of kid-hooking cuteness to dark and aging fan service was perfect.
    - The actors were for the most part very strong. Hammill as conflicted Luke, Driver as the ascending Ben Solo, and my beloved Daisy Ridley as Rey did terrific jobs. Poe, Finn, Leia, and Laura Dern's character were all excellently executed.
    - There is some creativity here, it's not super formulaic, and it was a fun watch.

    CON'S
    - SQUANDERED OPPORTUNITIES EVERYWHERE!!! So many options to have shows of great power that were cast aside. So many bad decisions from the writers that make the overall movie incredibly unsatisfying.
    A) Tease Rey's birth story, alluding to potential "chosen one" type lineage: No payoff, screw it, she's a daughter or scrubs.
    B) Snoke emerges as the most powerful entity, a dominant and terrifying force: Nah, fuck Boss Bathrobe, he gets discarded.
    C) EPIC SHOWDOWN WITH LUKE GODDAMNED SKYWALKER: Psyche! He's not really there, and never actually fights. And now he's dead with no payoff!
    D) Yoda! Except he does nothing, looks terrible, and is completely unnecessary.
    - Benecio Del Toro is an awesome actor. He was completely wasted with that stammering dickhole of a character.
    - Gwendoline Christie, I don't know why you were done dirty like that. You also deserved better.
    - The casino scenes will rival the pod races from Ep 1 as the most unnecessary scenes in SW history.
    - Rose. Yawn. She's not annoying, but she is 100% not compelling in any way.
    - Now What!? Is there any doubt Rey can defeat Kylo Ren in combat? The First Order has tons of numbers, but no compelling leverage. I almost don't give a shit w.r.t. the next movie, because I don't see TFO being the overriding force like the Empire.

    This is the most disappointed I've been in a movie in a very, very long time.

    There were things I didn't like about the movie but overall I liked it and want to see it again.
