Some scenes were mind-blowing and it had the potential to be a phenominal film but overall it just fell apart.
Dreadful script, very disjointed and so many scenes just left me cringing.
I can't even bring myself to go back and watch it again.

I find it interesting that my daughter who really likes TFA and R1 also dislikes this film, she's cancelled all her preorders for TLJ hot toys etc.
Majority of her friends didn't like it either, they are in the 19-22 age group and all scifi fans.
Aye it's shite and no way I'm dropping another penny on the merchandise

You have to remember that a lot of Star Wars fans will look beyond the essence of the film itself. I totally understand that young and old alike will like it, but there are some that don't. Heck, a lot of people dislike the PT but I myself actually like it and feel it links more to the OT than the sequels. Yeah we got Jar Jar etc but it was about the Skywalker's and in particular one person - Anakin. I would rather they started with a whole, fresh trilogy and leave the Skywalker story to quietly end. What do we get ? Vader's melted helmet, a Vader wanabee and a nobody with any ties whatsoever - i think they are going to try to tie Rey into the Skywalker's in the next film to try to save themselves from TLJ. They will look at negative press / reaction to influence the next one, but tbh I think its past that now.
One thing is for sure, and its something I always say. I grew up in the original era and the OT trilogy can never be beaten. Thats one thing money can't buy, and I can smile whenever I think of it. It was special, and maybe some of us are too protective of it but to me its always a sign of my childhood and growing up. I'm a Stars Wars kid, and the sentimentality is something I love. This ' Space Opera' blew my mind back then and it still does.
I hope the kids of today can grow up regarding the ST in the same way, and I mean that. Just don't expect everyone too like the movies that are released in an attempt to recreate the era we were used to.

The modern toys hold zero interest for me, why would they, I'm both not a kid and they don't fit my aesthetic reference that is attached the OT, but the joy they have and the way they want me to be involved to share their love of the films makes my day
