Had a few days for my thoughts to come together...
Don’t love it, but don’t hate it.
The comedy lines didn’t sit right.... but it’s also a kids film
The flying though space, well...
The whole casino planet, not needed, just a way to sell toys/show what you can do with CGI
The killing of the imperial ship with the cruiser, why not use one that had already run out of go go juice just before it did
The Pongs and Chewbacca scenes ...
Even some of the dialogue felt it came from previous films
I don’t know, so many questions.
TFA was dull and perdictable, R1 was great, these were my thoights from the first viewings, and I haven’t changed my mind.
As many have already said, another viewing may help, but not sure that I will be changing my mind on this one, adverage at best.
