I just got back from watching the movie and I thought it was great! Pretty much a 10/10, although if I were to name a gripe about the movie, I didn't really like the final fight.
I get that Rey is pretty powerful but, she's going against a Jedi who was formally trained by Luke Skywalker, there shouldn't have been anyway she was going to win that fight. I get that Kylo was injured by the blaster but still, she JUST discovered her powers and she pretty much crushed him. I suppose you canm ake the argument that Rey was already a fighter before she met Kylo I suppose.
Oh man, and the scene between Kylo and Han? THEY ACTUALLY DID IT. I was like NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

I watched it last night and honestly?
They just copy-pasted the Return of the Jedi plot, put the old actors in, predictably made the story around the offsprings of the main characters and AGAIN casted a complete tosser to play the bad guy.
You'd think Kylo Ren would be more stoic and have his shit together, but no. He was just as much of a little bitch angsty teen as Anakin, bonus the emo look. I was like "Yeah, badass antagonist!! That's what we want!", then he takes off his helmet and delivers nothing but disappointment.
I mean, I enjoyed the movie and I was actually quite pleased with the female lead's acting as I was worried they may have picked yet another dumb pair of tits, but she was great!
But yeah, the whole "bigger Death Star, let's blow it up exactly the same way we did it last time since bad guys don't learn from their mistakes" plot was a bit cheap, if you ask me. Disney were probably trying to be as careful as possible not to upset the fans by not deviating too much, lol.1

Dude I just saw the movie.. I LOVED IT!
Unfortunately I know the Expanded Universe stuff which is now not canon and I predicted that Kylo was who he was. I know they're not following the EU but they borrowed some story line from it. The Han thing was hilarious because Harrison Ford never understood why the Star Wars franchise is as popular as it is so I was like HA! My only gripe about the movie was the fact that I thought they borrowed from past material too much. I get that it's a throwback in a sense and the fans love it but some of the story was something we are all used to.
I predicted that Finn wasn't a Jedi even though every one of my friends was like "HEY HE HAS A LIGHTSABER!!!" I knew Rey was the Jedi because they released trading cards for the movie and her allegiance was to the Jedi Temple so it was kind of spoiled a few months ago. I'm still questing her parentage though.. I feel like she's very much connected to the Skywalker family. Her vision will get analyzed more during the sequel I think.
I REALLY want the next film to focus on training. We have yet to see a Jedi train in a star wars film. Sure it's existed in video games and in novels but never in a movie to a serious degree. I want that Jedi Temple training and that growth as a character and I'm really thinking it's going to happen before Kylo and Rey face off in the sequel.
Anyway super stoked for the sequel because I feel like it will be even better than the first. I felt like half of this movie was fleshing out new characters and now that we know those characters they can really focus on the interactions.0
