You're going insane. But not necessarily because of that post.

I prefer the spoilers, this is not great art
I have to see this with family over the holidays and now expect not too much
as for your last question, don't work your joystick in public and you will be ok

i'm waiting until after Christmas.



and will not look at this thread until then.

My reaction ranges from yes to FUCK YES.

It's a gorgeous movie with great new characters and the promise of Luke and Rey kicking ass all over the galaxy. I'm very happy.

I look forward to the tubing planet Laz introduces in Episode X.

Just got out of the theater and all I can say its WOW !!!. JJ take a bow. Yes there were parts that were derivative of A New Hope, Empire, and Jedi, but I don't view them as carbon copies. More like a Tribute Band that wrote an awesome original track. For me the most important takeaways are the new characters and some iconic imagery that will be forever imprinted into the Star Wars legend.

 

- The story really belongs to Rey. Her character has the biggest story arc and still some mystery left to her origins

- Finn gives us something we haven't seen before. A defector from the evil side. Great comic timing.

- BB-8 was well thought out as the "white whale" everybody is hunting when in actuality is a little fun puppy dog.

- The iconic moments that remain stuck in my mind. The Falcon chase through the skeleton of the Star Destroyer. Hux screaming to his troops like a Nuremberg Rally. Solo and Kylo on the bridge. The snow lightsaber fight. The closing moment on the Island.

- One complaint I had. Leia projects strength to her troops but, she needed a moment where it all breaks down and lose it more when she hugged Rey after you know what.

Still waiting for El Mel to address any of my criticisms above.

I did enjoy everything Oregoropa mentioned, and have high hopes for the next one. But this should have been something much more creative.

After 30 years I was worried about Luke's whining
 
Instead, its his best movie, because he has no lines

I have nothing to address. Ask Ashley to confirm; because I'm terrible to watch movies with, I was whispering to her many of the same points you took away as I watched. The incredulous look on her face when
 
the long-lost blue lightsaber returned out of nowhere
was priceless. And even I was mildly annoyed when
 
R2-D2 flipped himself back on because the plot called for it.


As a whole, however, my experience wasn't ruined by these flaws. Not at all. I'm not a very critical Star Wars viewer and never have been because my knowledge of the overall series mythology is minimal outside of the main films. The one point I will make w/r/t the light saber duel in the snow (visually, one of my favorite scenes of the year):
 
Rey dominated Kylo because she's more closely attuned to the Force, not because of a plot contrivance. Everything came to her naturally, too naturally to be explained by skill alone. I'm guessing that if it's true that she is Luke's daughter as has been theorized, the midi-chlorians in her blood are through the roof, whereas Kylo is a generation separated from Anakin. His parents are Leia (not a Jedi) and Han, who is about as insensitive to the Force as a person can be. Kylo is right to fear that he will never be as strong as Vader. As I said, I'm no expert, so correct me if I'm wrong, it's just the first thing that sprung to mind in the theater.

Just because Leia hasn't been trained doesn't mean the midichlorians wouldn't be passed on. And no reason to believe her count wouldn't be as high as Luke's. They're twins, after all.
