Just got back from seeing it…I have to say that it was a redemption to me. I rolled my eyes when Kylo instantly threw another fit the first five minutes he was on screen but I felt the rest of the movie made him much better and more believable/tolerable. I also felt that Rey and Finn were more developed and not wishy-washy. It was certainly a more entertaining movie overall…and I felt like it was an excellent comeback after the movie before it.
I enjoyed it, and it was worth seeing…and when I left the theater I felt good for having seen it. I am disappointed that Phasma was killed off, I wanted more from her (maybe she can come back? Her death isn’t assured to me), and it really didn’t bother me about Snoke’s death. I felt worse when Darth Maul and General Grievous died.
What the heck happened with Yoda? Did they try to re-invigorate the old puppet from ESB? His manner was the same as in that film. At least he was a bit better looking that the original puppet they had used in Episode 1 or 2 which they later altered (that one’s eyes were all bugged out). I didn’t care for how he looked this time but I guess I kinda get why they did this, since Luke’s last looks at Yoda was back in ESB.
Why no Obi-Wan or Anikin? They would have been so great to see but maybe it would have added too much drama.
Rose didn’t bother me at all.
I thought it was overall an enjoyable film.
Was very sad seeing Carrie Fisher and knowing she is gone, but happy to see her using her powers in this film, and seeing new Jedi powers in general.
