i agree it seemed to get swept under the rug rather quickly. It also made me wonder what landos up to if hes even still alive, and if their gonna have a scene where he hears the bad news.

Tbh the funniest moment in the film for me was when Threepio's face popped up and he was all like "it is I C-3PO!" laughing out loud

Yeah that was great.

The opening crawl itself was dissapointing, though. It explained none of the politics that it should have, only the "force" side of things.

In fact, that's part of the story that really, unexpectedly bothered me. Everything was about the Force. Even Poe Dameron was talking about the balance in the first scene. I mean, you could tell this was written by a fanboy, tbh. The treatment of the force is just... Off, not right.

agreed about the opening crawl.

oh and that one scene where poe takes out like 12 tie fighters in 8 seconds...that was a bit much unless they intend to make him a jedi.

Watched it last night. Liked it a lot. Will watch it again tonight. It did seem cheesy at moments but pretty bad ass at others.

Phasma didn't do anything... I felt that was a waste.

Its a reference to including politics but not boring the audience.

The acting was possibly on par with the greatest of the OT moments. Boyenga and all of the cast absolutely put their hearts in the film, and outshined the OT cast in every way in the passion they put from their facial expressions to expressing their dialogue.

Nah, they were excellent but they didn't have as good a dynamic as the OT crowd.

I liked Poe Dameron actually. For the first time we see a pilot know to be very good, and we actually SEE him be very good.

And yeah, Phasma... what an obsolete character was that. You think she is still alive?

I laughed like a horse when Finn gave BB-8 a thumbs up and BB-8 returned it.

I think the cast is actually amazing. I hope they let Finn plow Rey by the end of it though and Poe doesn't swoop in for the kill steal

too good to not be strong with the force imho. that one scene was way over the top enough to where he alone could have changed the whole ending of rotj where all the ties are shot down and lando casually glides the falcon into the death star.

K, Han Solo death hit me went the lightssaber went through him. It was something when ren said "I know what I have to do, but I don't know if I have the strength to do it". Saw his death coming when he said that, but was still shocking to me. Now it seems supreme leader snoke will have to complete Rens training as he needed to kill his father first. He's a puppet just like Vader was, except this time it's snoke running the strings
I'm not totally convinced Han is dead though but probably. Leia didn't seem too upset about his death?

Now Snoke must be a sith. Wasn't much explanation of snoke in episode 7 as it's obviously setting up for episode 8.

The ending, wow, Luke to be the new yoda with Rey.

Oh, what's with the blue lightsaber that belonged to Luke? Luke lost his blue one (originally anakins) in esb when Vader cut Luke's hand off. In episode 6 Luke had a green lightsaber. My guess is that Luke built a new one after episode 6...

I could go on, but that's my initial take.....

i think luke had planted the saber deliberately so that ren would find it. struck me as way too odd that an object she never saw would trigger force-flashbacks like that. almost like he put the same spell on it that yoda may or may not have done for that cave in ESB.

Well, it is kind of Star Wars. Say what you want, but it lacked Lucas's touch. Not that he should have made the movie alone (you can't trust him with that anymore), but the man knows how to add things that attract fans.

he just sucks at taking part in a production without holding sway over everything. i would have preferred him stay on board for collaboration, but nowadays he completely lacks the ability to compromise in the creative process. at least as far as star wars goes.

Oh yeah, we all remember Jar Jar. That attracted a lot of fans.

Except Leia completely felt the death in the Force...they wouldn't have included her scene if he didn't actually die.

Of course he's dead. If the saber didn't kill him, the fall did. And even if that didn't kill him, the implosion of the planet certainly did. It's over guys, Han had a great run and a good death. Let him rest in peace.
