    So, went to see this today with a few friends and really enjoyed myself. I managed, with great effort, to avoid any spoilers which is pretty amazing considering my entire family saw it when it opened. I think this is the first movie in the Star Wars franchise where I had no inkling of the plot beforehand.
    We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men. Edward R. Murrow

    I enjoyed the movie too. It wasn't anywhere near my favorite Star Wars, but as a movie I liked it.

    I enjoyed it and was also irritated by it. It was an interesting movie to watch with good action and seamless CGI. I've felt like they're just remaking the originals. The first one was kind of a mix of New Hope and Jedi. This one had the Empire Strikes Back feel to it. Still, enjoyable.

    I will say it again, I'm betting Ben and Rey are brother and sister. Luke and Leah showed they can connect in a similar way being brother and sister. I don't think Snoke created that instance, maybe just enhanced it or helped progress it faster.

    I didn't like that the Director did his best to pretty much kill off any old characters. Han, Admiral Ackbar, soon to be Leah, and Luke. Seems he's trying hard to move on with new characters and develop new storylines. He could have easily kept them and made things good until they died in "RL".

    Wouldn't Leah know she spit out 2 kids, not 1?

    And I agree with killing off all the old characters. Han death was retarded. Luke being turned into a little bitch and the way he died sucked. Ackbar wasn't a main character.. more of a cult icon.. but his death was useless.

    Fixed. Yes I agree.

    I was reading some shit the other day about how Disney had literally no outline or plan for how the new trilogy should go. They gave full control to Abrams and now Rian. And then Abrams again. They're literally winging it. Like on Lost. Which makes sense because "lost" is how most people seem to feel after watching these shitshows.

    The only reason I'm ok with Han dying is because Harrison Ford insisted on being killed off for him to agree to do another movie. He wanted Han to die in ROTJ but Lucas wouldn't do it. But yeah his actual death scene was garbage just like most everything else so far in this new story.

    Watched an old theory video about how Rey could be a Palpatine and the clues in the video are there, but it's all probably nothing and the "clues" are just coincidental and not actually clever hint dropping. Rey is about the biggest Mary Sue ever though, so if some crazy shit doesn't happen next movie and she just cruise controls all the way to the end becoming some supreme master of the Force and saving the galaxy with zero training or weaknesses it's going to be the most retarded shit ever.

    I think Rian Johnson's plan was something along the lines of, "Everybody thinks Rey is this and Snoke is that and Luke will do this and Leia will do that, so we're gonna really REALLY surprise them by having it all lead to...nothing! They'll never see it coming! Such great filmmaking! We're genuises!" *high fives Kathleen Kennedy*

    The original trilogy was winged too, so it is as Star Wars as possible. Vader wasn't originally Luke's father. Leia wasn't his sister. A bunch of shit they just invented as they went along. the prequals were the only ones to have an overarcing plan.

    I guess anything is possible, even the Palpatine thing. We never really hear about anyone on the Dark Side having relationships and whatnot. Suppose they're having swinger parties and kissing their sisters as well.

    And there's that kid at the end who obviously has powers as well so there's a whole new storyline coming there probably.
