I can't believe Darth Vader is Luke Skywakers father! Wait a sec...

 

It's good, watched it yesterday. It's almost like a war film and not very Star Wars-y

 

Some parts are amazing but some parts gave me the ole cringe face.

Oh it gets worse than that, He's also Kylo's late Grandfather, honestly, this saga is just an epic galactic tantrum of one family against the whole universe... (Similar to the Kardashians) :p

I agree @HoochieMamma- First the 1st hour or so I was completely stone-faced.  Everytime there was a big scene, or event, or "thing" my fiance would look over @ me and I was just ... nothing.
I was ###### - what is this attempt @ humor crap ?
What the hell is ....

But then things started turning around.
Its 3 hours.
The last 45 mins made up for the 1st part.  But, TBH I need to see it again to give a rating- I think I expected to feel what I did as a little kid and when I didn't, I became biased.

I'll watch it again - but overall - I say (Y)

The humor was applied more heavily than in other entries. Mostly liked it, though, for Star Wars. A loooooong way away from Lucas's "Bantha poodoo"...

 

I was very, very happy with it. There is only really one sequence I would change, and I think that is obvious to anyone immediately.

 

Wasn't expecting perfect - I binged all other SW movies before seeing TLJ, and really, even ESB has plenty of questionable things, too. This entry was entertaining, artistic, well produced, appeals to a wide audience, and is as much as I could expect.

 

The last half was a series of great scenes where I just kept being amazed it kept going and adding more.

 

The one problem I still have with the new trilogy (though they are supposedly going to keep going, so trilogy may be the wrong term, whatever) is...

 

Spoiler

Who the holy hell was Snoke? I think we missed a couple of movies. I mean, I even read the Leia book so I knew who Holdo was, did I miss something?

 

But also

 

Spoiler

+1 for Space Jedi Pull Leia, she did learn something!

 

And who else was expecting Lando at the stupid casino?

As far as your 2nd hidden comment - that scene ###### me off more than any other - I was like, "WTF ?!?!  Is she Mary Poppins ?


But - Im still torn over all.

However, I did see this today while going XMAS shopping.  A gentle reminder of how huge the Star Wars movies are:

Went to see it last night, very very very good, although same as T3x4s and Zag with the same bits.

 

The humour wasnt much funny IMO. But rest was superb, couple of items had a tear in my eye. 

 

didnt expect you know who to be there till end though.

Agreed on didn't know who would still be standing in the end.
Every scene I was thinking "Is this where [insert major character] goes ?"
But I was surprised too.

I did like the ingenious way they did the "big battle".
