See it with: Anybody (It's a Disney movie now)
Warning before you go: This movie will be jammed with people, especially people who don't frequent the movies and don't understand proper movie etiquette. There were at least 5 moments of unnecessary clapping from the audience and don't be afraid to use the bathroom cuz it's over 2 hours long.
Summary: I really liked this movie, do not get me wrong. I may even go see it again because the visuals of the movie were absolutely stunning but there were some clear holes and missed opportunities in this movie that I just couldn't over-look. Now that a couple of days have passed, I've had a chance to think about why this movie didn't give me the sexual euphoria-like feeling that it gave to D's. It satisfies all of the traditional Star Wars cravings but there were some glaring holes in my opinion. I'll still be seeing all the following Star Wars sequels and give all the credit in the world to those who created this new chapter but this was NOT a perfect film that D's is raving about.
-The plot of the movie was almost a carbon-copy of the very first Star Wars movie. The First Order is the evil empire with a disfigured emperor, there's Darth Vader-like leader in Kylo-Ren, and it's up to the Rebels (yet again) to destroy an even bigger Death Star before they vaporize entire planets. Mix in some family drama and corny one-liners, then all of the sudden you got sequels and mass-appeal.
-The lightsaber might be the coolest weapon ever, and the movie started off on a great foot by giving Kylo-Ren an updated, fierce cross-guard saber but that's about it. The sabers are barely utilized and can someone explain to me why Finn and Rey were able to hang with Kylo-Ren in the final (and frustratingly, only) light saber battle? Isn't Kylo -Ren a trained saber warrior? How did you barely beat Finn (weak-ass Storm Trooper) and get your ass handed to you by a girl who had never touched a light saber before that moment? Kylo should've been taking limbs left and right, not looking like a school-boy bitch who needs a haircut.
-Called the Han Solo death 10 minutes before it happened, the rebels predictably destroyed the new Death Star and the movie ended by roping you in to see the next chapter. A lot of hype, a quick fix, now the waiting begins, again.
