Am I the only one who returns to being a giddy 3 year old in 1977 the moment she hears John Williams score and sees those yellow outlined words on the screen, and just goes to be entertained and not overthink everything?

Level 6: Saw all the movies and own the DVDs and own the original trilogy on VHS and own Star Wars merchandise and have been to Star Wars weekends at Disney World

Level 7: Saw all the movies and own the DVDs and own the original trilogy on VHS and own Star Wars merchandise and have been to Star Wars weekends at Disney World and read the books

Level 8: Saw all the movies and own the DVDs and own the original trilogy on VHS and own Star Wars merchandise and have been to Star Wars weekends at Disney World , read the books, and have watched ALL the TV series including Star Wars Holiday Special (and it was good because it introduced Boba Fett)

Level 9: Everything above and I do Cosplay at ComiCon and speak Wookie and Huttenese. Plus, Han shot first!

I felt the same way and am in the minority in that I liked the movie. No, it wasn't perfect but I understand that this isn't meant to be like the old Star Wars. It's going in a different direction and the focus won't be on the Skywalkers.

Seems people are pissed if it follows the old movies too much and pissed even more if it deviates too much from the past.

Re: Rey's Parents

I, too, think Kylo is being less than truthful in his revelation. Her flashback in TFA shows her watching a ship taking off, as she's screaming "don't go".

Last Jedi was ok. I enjoyed the opening battle scene and the ending battle sequences. However, in all it felt like Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi had been thrown into a blender, and the end product was not nearly as good as those movies (I think Empire is great and ROTJ is solid but not spectucular). The jedi training scenes felt like they were pulled straight from Empire, and the Snoke scenes felt like they'd been pulled straight from ROTJ. I suppose the Snoke scenes had a twist with the way they ended, but rehashing the same plots but having small twists feels very unambitious. I suppose the filmmakers were fearful of treading new ground and felt like following the same formula was the safer path, but when these movies literally offer a universe of possibilities, I disappointedly kept thinking "I've seen this before" (and I'm not a particularly big Star Wars fan).

Plus, the entire casino planet sequence felt like something out of the Phanton Menace.

Been so busy with work and other things that I finally got to see this today.

It was like Suicide Squad in that there were so many characters to develop that it got confusing after a while and the movie felt like it was three hours long.

They screwed the movie up by trying to devote equal time to the old and new characters. Either one or the other should be primary and vice-versa.

This one should have focused on Skywalker more and the new characters less. I liked the Jedi "branding" that LS spoke of early on and I think the treachery of Laura Dern's character should have been developed more.

I thought the vignette with Finn, the tech girl, and Banderas' character was a waste of time and should have been saved for a later episode. The casino planet and the kids at the end should never have been in this episode.

That scene where the tech girl rammed Finns speeder and knocked it out of the way of the cannon was pretty lame and it would have killed the movie for me were it not for the last scene with LS.

The elder Luke and the Just-for-Men Luke was pretty lame, too.
