***SPOILER ALERT - DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN***


The Good


Casting - The finally got some good people to take the reigns from the original cast. Thank god!

Character development. Rey is amazing, there's very little known about her past (is she a Skywalker? Is she another immaculate conception?) but you really got to know her pretty quick.

The Millennium Falcon!!!! Back in action again!

This movie "felt" like Star Wars. This is how you upgrade the original content graphically. All of the styling was back, the acting, the quick wit etc. Loved it.

The Bad

Soooo many questions. Who is the bad guy? Who is Rey?

Why is Fin touching a lightsaber period the end period?

How many amazing coincidences can we have in one film? Droid happens to find the only force sensitive in the galaxy (R2-Luke?), Fin Stumbles upon both, they happen to find the Millennium Falcon, and just happen to be found by non other than Han Solo?

The Ugly

Storyline... is this not the 2015 version of A New Hope? They could have called this one A New Hope and it would have made sense.

How many "deathstars" do we have to blow up? They combine both Ep 4 and 6 in one fell swoop. Lets fly down a trench, and then fly inside the thing.. side note: the Falcon flying in to the Star Destroyer... c'mon man

How does Ren go from Billy Badd*** Sith in the beginning to total panzy in the end against a girl that has no idea what a Jedi even is? How is a non-force user (Fin) able to live against a Sith? That's a 1/2 second fight. We've been trained for 6 movies that it is a 1/2 second fight...


*************************************

Overall I liked the movie, but they really need to split the storyline up some from the originals. This plot was a complete rip, but the nostalgia made up for it. I rank it 4th behind the original 3 but above the prequels by far.

The movie wasn't a sequel. It was a reboot. It was as you said, literally A New Hope all over again.

Desert planet. Old "wise" man becomes father figure to young unexpected adventurers. Old "wise" man is killed by former apprentice/son who has Skywalker blood.

Death star destroys planets. Death star gets destroyed by X-wings.

They literally rehashed A New Hope and switched a couple of things around.

The only thing that is different is the ending. It leaves you in suspense of what will happen next. A New Hope seemed like a one and done.

Ren isn't a sith lord and there are so many questions to be answered. Always 2 there are, no more, no less. Ren had the knights of Ren during the flashback. Could they be force users? In Rebels, there are sith inquestors too. It's becoming too much really. Wheres thrawn? lol
