Did anyone else see the movie?!?!?!
I absolutely loved it! Had a blast. Everyone was laughing/clapping/yelling out in unison. Was Awesome.
This is a place where we, who have seen the movie, can talk about it. So, there WILL be spoilers. If you haven't seen it.. then go away :P
I am seeing it again tomorrow in IMAX, but just a few things i wanted to get down as i am fresh from the theater.
Acting - 100%. the entire new cast is wonderful.
Title Crawl - The first line really hit me.. set up the whole movie. I literally said "OH SHIT!" lol.
Story - Loved it. it really sets up some new mythology, and mystery.
Opening - Kylo Ren in the first scene.... EPIC.
Middle - Great Pacing. So much fun.
Ending - the Death..... and the way it ended. What is Luke going to Say? What is the State of Kylo Ren? What more does Snoke need to teach him? how will the First Order retaliate?! What/who arew the Knights of Ren? 2 years?!?!! D:
THINGS I WISH HAD BEEN DIFFERENT:
Captain Phasma - We don't see much of her. Although, i know it had a lot to set up.. really wish the movie was 30min longer lol. I am certain she will have a larger role in VIII.
Lightsaber Battle - It wasn't bad, i just wanted to see a wider shot in there, like in Empire (bridge scene) and Jedi (the final part after Luke Yells "DARTH!".
Music - I just don't remember any new memorable themes/melodies besides Rey's. Perhaps i will notice more upon my second viewing tomorrow.
Teasers/Trailers - there are some scenes in them that were NOT in the movie (first teaser lightsaber ignition, teaser 2 maz handing lightsaber
Couldn't spot R2-KT (http://www.vulture.com/2015/11/memorial-droid-r2-kt-to-appear-in-force-awakens.html)
I think this film may be better than Jedi (definitely better than the entire prequel trilogy combined). But... honestly.. it is Star Wars.... so i CAN;T really rate it. It is just GOOD. 9/10 for me.
Also..... going back to the car.. i am all "The way Luke looks at Rey.. is she his daughter? Could he have sent her to Jakku so she was far away from him, and Max Von Sydow's character was watching over her, like Obi-Wan did for Luke, and that is how he knew where Luke was?!?!?!?!?
