2 times for me and tomorrow will be the third and just so you know i hated all the other movies except for Ep3.
After my seventh viewing, I realized that this movie really had nothing to offer. I fully intend to see the next two films and all of the anthology films, but maybe Disney will be swayed by the erudite reasoning of those such as myself. I am glad that the internet has reached a consensus about this film's lackluster presentation. This is truly a victory for the audience.
I think people lose interest in this movie because it features basically a whole new cast, and the old cast is kinda there to help the new cast take their place. Same thing happened with the OT, the difference being we didn't quite know who the old geezers like Yoda and Obi-Wan were. Truthfully, as long as they do Ep. VIII right, then VII will make more sense and be a lot better for me.
Just once on opening night in IMAX. I liked it, but I usually go to movies in theaters once to let it soak in.
The only exceptions have been Gravity (literally IMAX: The Movie) in IMAX 3D and Interstellar in IMAX
>Set design, sound direction
>Finn implies that stormtroopers are human beings with real emotion, shows concern and shock at his comrade being gunned down. A few minutes later he's gunning down wave after wave of his former comrades while WOOHOOing, culminating in the destruction of an entire planet of Imperials.
>Rey is being mugged! Oh no wait, she's an expert fighter. They're getting into the ship, she's never flown- oh no, she's a top tier pilot anyway. Stormtroopers are chasing her, but she's a top tier marksman so it's okay. She's captured- but she's mastered the Force in five seconds etc. etc.
Kylo Ren was actually an interesting character until he took his mask off. That he's conflicted and trying and failing to live up to Vader is already conveyed without needing to reveal his face, which would have been a great reveal to save until his confrontation with Han because like Vader the mask leaves you to wonder what lies beneath and what the dark side has done to the person. You would think that's the one thing JJ would actually borrow from the OT.
Speaking of borrowing from the OT:
FUCKING UNFORGIVABLE THINGS:
>LET'S BUILD A THIRD DEATH STAR BUT BIGGER THIS TIME
>IT HAS A WEAK POINT HERE THAT WE CAN TARGET WITH X WINGS
Rey being a good fighter was ok, she has to survive in the waste. Rey being a pilot was not ok. Being a mechanic does not equal knowing how to operate a ship. Rey should have been terrible at shooting. The force thing is debatable. I'm on the camp that she was trained in the force before, so she was remembering how to use it, rather than learning for the first time.
>You're THE Han Solo? The famous smuggler who made the Kessel Run™ in 14 parsecs?!
saw it twice. Hated it the first time, and thought maybe I was having a bad day so I setup a date to see it in IMAX.
It was so damn bad and I even liked the prequels. How the fuck did it get so many glowing review?
I'm really dumbfounded. Someone who's a film buff please explain why this is a good film.
I liked it the first time, nothing special but a fun time.
My dad really wanted to see it with me and I was up seeing it again. But half way through the movie I was so fucking bored.
