Thought it was great, some random bits where they need a George Lucas to say no you can't do that, but overall very good, already prefer it over TFA. As already said their is a lot to take in, but I don't really change my opinion of a film after 2 or 3 views. Thought the start was rubbish. Luke was brilliant and the humour subtle. Didn't want it to end and really not sure where they are going with the story which is a good thing as long as Lucasfilm and Disney know!

I pretty much disagree with every single word of this. Bar the bit about needing to speak to George Lucas a wee bit more. Who would have thought a sensible level headed Liverpool fan and a deluded glory hunting Utd fan would disagree on something!? :lol: :wink:

For me it's a very poor film. Plot is utter bollocks. The holes in it are just so glaring. If you're 6 years old you won't see them and won't mind, but for any grown adult with a double digit IQ, you're left sitting there just wondering WTF is going on. With decent editing the film could have been 45 mins to an hour shorter, actually maybe more now that I think about it. That tells you all you need to know about it. Hard to say more without giving bits away.

Soooooooooo disappointed

You hit the nail on the head Weasel a 6 year old won’t see the glaring holes in the plot and that is why we ignore the plot holes in the origional trilogy. BECAUSE STAR WARS IS A CHIlDRENS FRANCHISE. Yes I can’t really argue with most of your points, because you have a point and yes I thought what are they doing with some bits. But Disney can’t make a Star Wars film for a bunch of 35 to 50 year olds who grew up masterbating over Princess Leia in a bikini!

We can discuss how bad this film was in parts, but for me I don’t let some badly executed ideas ruin what is a fun film. You can vent your anger to how bad this film was in your opinion as much as you like, but what’s the point, the film wasn’t made for you. It was made for someone 30 years younger.

I’ve already said it was a bad idea making this trilogy, I’ve always thought that even in the interviews with George Lucas discussing the sequel trilogy before he sold out. I’ll admit I’m a little disappointed, but really, it’s a Star Wars film made by Disney in 2017. Like Liverpool’s title hopes in the last 20 Year’s we need to be realistic with expectations. :D

As for the glory hunting Man Utd comment, give me a break. When I started supporting Man Utd their was only one team to support and that was Liverpool. Everyone supported them, especially in Cornwall and everywhere else in the UK. :wink: I was 10 before I saw Man Utd lift a trophy, I’d seen Liverpool win everything by then! I grew up surrounded by glory hunters and they all supported Liverpool!

I think it’s by far Mark Hamill’s best performance as Luke Skywalker. :)

Yeah, this is true. I guess when I watch a SW film now I am watching it now through kids eyes, albeit with the added cynicism that ehhh 30 odd years adds. As it's aimed at kids they will probably like it, but even at that, I'm not sure it has enough real action or "ohhh look at that weird alien" bits. Maybe I'm just being harsh.

Liverpool HAD title hopes!? :shock: :o :wink:

Anyone who knows me well, always gets a bite from that Man Utd comment. Can’t help myself the injustice is comparable to Nelsan Mandella’s incarceration!

Another thing Weasel you said you disagree with everything I said, does that mean you like the first half hour? I’m going to see it again but as soon as it starts I’m nipping out for a coffee and toilet break for 20 minutes.

Think they would be better off making Star Wars porn for our generation, Jabba the slutt, Star Hors, return of the japseye.

Ehh, TBH the whole thing blurs into one mediocre meh for me.

My memory of the first half hour is (this is the spoiler free thread) that it's the bit where thingy does that thing and what-do-ya-call-them do that other thing and then whatshisface has that scene? Yeah? :wink:

Finally got to see it yesterday (friday) due to work as home commitments.

I really enjoyed it. It has not followed a format you would have expected and for that I thank them. Don’t expect a rehash of an existing Star Wars film, as you won’t get it. Go with an open mind or else you will be another person disappointed because two years of theorising what was going to happen in this film got flushed down the toilet.

I can’t wait to see what they do with the last film.
