You're telling me some Jefferson Starship or twenty minutes of Wookie grunting wouldn't have improved the prequels?

I'm saying if Jar Jar Binks had looked at the camera and said "Fucka you-sa, I gotten your moneys" it still would have gone down better than anything about the holiday special, including that fugly Boba Fett cartoon.

UV rays will really age you and Tatooine does have two suns. I guess Tatooineans don't believe in sunscreen.

So I saw TFA today. Very good! Going again tomorrow. I don't yet know where it sits in the list of my favourite SW movies, but no lower than position four. That beats all the prequels, plus the Clone Wars animated movie. It's something I have to think about for a while.

I have so many feels and thoughts.

After seeing it twice...:
The second time, the moment Han and Chewie split up, I was a wreck. And the way Han puts his hand on "Ben"s cheek... GOD, JJ, WAY TO PACK MORE EMOTION IN ONE MINUTE THAN THE ENTIRE REST OF THE SAGA COMBINED.

And Luke, at the end... he looks so sad. Like he's been sitting on a bunch of potential visions of the future and he knows what happened to Han the instant he sees Rey has Anakin's lightsaber.

And there's so much more I could talk about. Snoke has to be like 3 inches tall, right? And I'm both super glad and also a little disappointed that Rey and Finn don't kiss when they reunite on Starkiller Base. And Poe and Finn are best bros forever and I love that. MORE POE IN 8 PLEASE!!!!!! And on and on and on and on and on.....

And I don't give a shit if this was mostly a remake. I feel like JJ needed it to be in order to course correct from the prequels.

I have a lot of feels that boil down to
that scene:
and my opinion of fuck that, fuck all of that, fuck!
. The rest was great, the actors were excellent, I'm just so
Spoiler:
mad they killed Han. So mad. I figured out the moment he and his son were on screen together, but SO MAD.

We went to an early bird screening this morning. One of the kids behind us ran out of the screen EVERY SINGLE TIME Rylo Ken appeared on screen. I think there was more going on there though because they arrived late with the dad, the trailers were on and I think he was spooked by the darkness and the fact that his Dad was five people ahead of him so he had to be coaxed in to watch it and the dad must have watched the first ten minutes of the film watching it from the door.

Anyway,
about THAT scene:
as soon as Han stepped onto that bridge, I was internally shrieking "WTF SOLO DO YOU NOT REMEMBER THE LAST TIME SOMEONE STEPPED ON A BRIDGE FACING A GUY STEEPED IN THE DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE????" ThenTHAT happened and my mother turned and gave me a glare as though I had known about this and never told her. I did not know. We have been a spoiler free household.

Loved Finn and Rey. Loved what they added, love how they were portrayed, love how they acted off one another, love love love!

ulkis, regarding that Leia query:
Spoiler:
there was a lot of emphasis on "He's your son, Han!" etc. Perhaps a person could fanwank theorise that Ben/Kylo Ren would never go after Leia because she is Vader's daughter and he's a huge fanboy of his grandfather. He turned against Luke but he didn't kill him. He might have tried to - it'll be interesting to hear more about how that particular encounter went down - but he didn't. So maybe his hologram mentor dude said "oh you like Vader? Come with me and I'll totally teach you how to use the DArk Side and you know, once you're really a Dark Lord, you can convince your uncle and mother to join us and the Vader legacy will be complete and we'll rule the galaxy". But in his diary, he writes "Dear Diary, I really don't give a shit about the mother, I'll probably kill her, but his father might be able to compete with me as a influential male figure in his life so he really has to go. Also I hate smugglers. They're such twits".

What?? It could be a thing!

I think so. I think his whole worldview in that regard is quite skewed by the influence of Supreme Leader Snoke.

I just imagined
Spoiler:
that Luke hadn't told anyone, except maybe Leia, about Vader turning away from the dark side at the very end. Maybe Kylo Ren thinks Luke killed the Emperor and Vader?

My one bitch (while minor bitch, given my large main one
Spoiler:
about killing Han, was that Kylo (and Rey)'s back stories were non-existent. So we have no idea when Kylo went evil. He knew his ancestry and seemed to have daddy-issues and granddaddy envy, but no details. How long was Luke supposed to be gone for?

I do wonder how much of the story hews with Lucas' vision for what was supposed to happen after ROTJ. I mean since he planned everything meticulously even the crap that contradicts itself!

I saw the original Star Wars movie in the theater when I was a kid, and I was horrified when Han Solo took his reward and left Luke and Leia at the end.  Adult Me would have seen it coming, but Kid Me was BLOWN AWAY when the Millennium Falcon swooped in at the last minute and saved Luke.  I talked about it endlessly, and probably spoiled the movie for everyone I encountered for the next two weeks.

That said:
Spoiler:
While Kid Me might have held out hope, Adult Me knew Han was a goner the minute he stepped onto that bridge.  And as much as I'm a sucker for a redemption arc, I am NOT HERE for a happy ending for that punk. I knew it was coming - part of me knew it was coming before I even entered the theater, but dammit, Han Solo is one of my all-time favorite fictional characters.

The only thing was would have been worse was if the rumors of Luke turning to the Dark Side were true.  That would have caused Man of Steel-level flames on the side of my face.

Over all, I liked it, and will probably see it again once the crowds die down. It was very much a "opening chapter," but I suppose that was inevitable.
