Yeah thatís basically whatís happened with me.

I still have issues, but after a 3rd viewing I canít deny that I like this film.

Admit you were wrong about Snoke and he's utterly fantastic, D. Thor. Admit every line he delivers is nothing short of perfection.

It was good.
Not perfect, but Johnson did a good job for how hamstrung he was.

I watched it pretty much back to back yesterday after seeing it Thursday. Going to wait and finally catch it in 3D in a week or so. It's like Looper it dramatically improves upon rewatches. That's a sign of a great film to me.

I'm pretty sure at this point that people will prefer TLJ to TFA once the dust has settled. Yes, there is questionable stuff in the film but not on par with the worse of the PT.

Anyone with a night off and who loves Snoke and Star Wars. It must be depressing not to have five uninterrupted hours all to yourself. I do hope your dreary existence improves.

Yeah a lot of the weaknesses stem back from TFA.

I'm not saying this film is perfect and I wouldn't have went in a different direction but it boldly went someone completely brand spanking new. And every single line uttered by Snoke was delivered with perfect execution. Snoke has THE greatest Star Wars voice to date IMO.


That's you're reasoning for it not being a shit film? Go watch it a few more times and you'll grow to tolerate it more? Well no duh. I'm sure the 20th time someone gets a d*ck up their ass in prison, it doesn't hurt as bad as the first one. You can tolerate anything eventually, doesn't mean you should. thumb down

Yes, Snoke was my favorite part of the movie. It felt like we had an actual Force user on screen. Too bad he died like a random user.

I am saying it improves. Other posters have agreed with me. This is the second best Star Wars film to me and there's a possibility it could overtake Rots. Both are so enjoyable upon rewatches it's a crime.

You aren't paying attention. Just because the emperor was killed by Vader without the force or a lightsaber by Vader doesn't mean he isn't extremely powerful. Snoke's dialogue, his voice, his look, how he mocked everyone who drew his ire is the stuff of legends.

We have never seen someone outright dominate characters with force power that scares Luke Skywalker. He was beyond direct conflict.

Snoke is by far my favorite Star Wars character ever but Kylo is a step up from Vader to me both in terms of his direction, his evil, and his lightsaber is still the coolest one ever seen in the entire Star Wars mythos. Just watch it again. Trust me.

Looks like most people liked it overall. I still need to see it again to decide whether I liked it or not

Wasn't really all that handstrung- he re-wrote swaths of the script at will.

As an example, did you know that in the original script the code-breaker subplot was supposed to be a buddy cop adventure between Poe and Finn? Rian scrapped it right before filming and created Rose because he felt that Poe and Finn "didn't have enough conflict".

I meant by the premise of the ST in general and TFA in particular.

Yeah, you can't get out of Luke running away like that after it was established. Might as well do something interesting with it.

I have no idea at all what you guys are referring to, as I jumped into the conversation blindly. But that's fair.

Its interesting that Luke's writing is the most controversial aspect of the film. I borderline despise the movie but Luke seemed totally fine to me. The only thing that was stupid is the event that prompted his exile.

His whole reason for going into hiding is kind of a big deal though. And itís what even Mark Hamill couldnít wrap his head around.

His acting was great though.
