    I saw this in 3d at the cinema and was totally taken in, I had worried it would be a terrible over animated over cgi'd over coloured feeble attempt as were some of the other later ones... the first one came out around the time I was born and the first three (i think) were awesome... when the more recent ones came out in the 2000's somewhere i think i lost all interest.... so happy they returned to some of the original cast ... honestly I shed a tear when I saw the millennium falcon ... I will probably go to see it with my mother again ... she's another enfp and loves sic fi fantasy


    Oh also loved that the girl was unforgivingly capable, was really sad that Han appeared to die... can he be brought back for the next episode please?... I imagine he was caught by some net and was rescued by a medic who transported him to another planet in an escape pod. Also I'd like rey to be Han and Leah's daughter... it makes sense...

    The super death star planet was a bit of a let down... rehash supreme.... something new maybe?

    I think his critique is valid. The first movie of every Star Wars trilogy will feature a desert planet with a droid and unknown young force user.

    The prequel trilogy seemed to be inferior filmmaking overall, with pacing and emotion just not right, unlike the original trilogy.

    Revenge of the Sith is the best of the prequel trilogy, but I found the politics simplistic at best. George tried to hard to make an Iraq War analogy. The Padme-Anakin relationship never felt real to me and Anakin's descent into the Dark Side left me wanting.

    I did find this article on Marcia Lucas to me enlightening and ring true. The original trilogy had many little touches that the prequel trilogy lacked.

    SW7 seems to have those little touches, but not to the extent of the original trilogy.

    There was such a huge deal about it but I didn't even think the first Star Wars movie was that great. Empire Strikes Back was really good. I was not a fan of of the third one. I honestly think the prequels were better than the original ones except for Empire Strikes Back.

    I'm with you here. I did enjoy the visual feast of the movie. I did like and think the movie was well made. But I also think that as a story it was really, really bad...I mean this myth has pretty much been reduced to Toy Story levels.

    I agree about the prequels. People started jumping on the prequel-bashing bandwagon because it was popular to do. Not that they were flawless, but the stories were more intriguing than this one by a long shot.



    We don't even know why Ren was seduced by the dark side. Maybe they'll elaborate on that in the sequels, but with Anakin, his mother died and he feared losing his wife. He was emotionally tortured and you could see his transition from Jedi to Sith. I don't even recall them offering a reason why Ren chose the dark side. Seems George Lucas was not pleased with the movie either.

    I thought it was a great film, played out a little expectedly but that was fine. I like the soundtrack, tunes, familiar/iconic ships and things.
