Because Rey's connection is with Luke. Ren's is with Vader.

My two biggest complaints with the movie

-The two guys from The Raid weren't in a proper fight scene
-The Knights of Ren weren't introduced properly and were just a vision
>>
>>78297354
I swear, if Han comes back as a Force Ghost..

...then again, it's got to be better than Force Ghost Jar Jar.

>>78295984
There's just too much vader in him :^)
>>78297337
Is that Finn or just some random trooper?
>>
So, just saw the movie. Liked it, pretty good. A little too straight foreward, thin on the details. But it WAS made for a younger audience, and hey - still better than Lucas' attempt to do the same.

Hearing the force talked about so matter of factly is a bit disjointing. I think the biggest obstacle fans face is disconnecting all the EU material in their heads and everything from decades of star wars prior, since it's all been declared Ex-Canonicus Extremis in Perditious.

I'm really glad they killed that person who you know they killed, that persons performance was the weakest over all. New cast is pretty good. Old cast is old and... stale and bad. Fite me if you must, but they really delivered the weakest performance here.

Also the tradition of Cantina owners somehow being all fucking knowing has come back from the Prequels to haunt us. Madame No-Capes pls, get out of movie.

Over all a pretty good film, just two scenes made me balk. The scene where they get THAT SHIP to get off the desert planet - as soon as they showed it I said "are you fucking kidding me?"

That and Kylo Ren unmasking. I laughed out fucking loud at his stupid face.
>>
>>78297337
I'm sad she was underused. Hopefully episode VIII rectifies that.
>>
>>78297347
You could hear the echoing cries of younglings and likely other Jedi that Anakin killed with it though, but the vision only showed Rey pertinent details to her destiny/identity.
>>
>>78297415
>that persons performance was the weakest over all.

What. He fell immediately back into the role. Leia was the one acting like she had a stroke. Even talked out the side of her mouth.
>>
>>78297406
That's the real hero of the movie, Warboy Trooper
>>
>>78297418
She needs a jetpack
>>
>>78297418
I wouldn't mind if her final scene wasn't so dumb. Couldn't they take some random officer or even Hux hostage instead?

>>78297467
She needs that riot stick, Gwen did take fencing lessons iirc so it could be fun to watch Phasma with a hand weapon.
>>
>>78297449
Maybe it was just the script he was handed in some places then, because at certain points it was baaaadd

"Hey...I like this guy..!"
>>
>>78297401
That's only for those that have followed all the info about the new cannon before seeing the movie though.

Mine are recycling parts of episode 4's plot, underused Phasma, and Kylo Ren's angry outbursts being dumb and taking away from him as a menacing antagonist.
>>
>>78297387
The first place she went to was Bespin? I think I heard Luke screaming after Vader told him he was his father, fits because then they show Luke's robo hand
>>
>>78297387

That was the best part though and part of what made him menacing.

Really getting tired of people whining that Kylo wasn't just the same sith character we've gotten for six movies already.
>>
>>78297502
I think it was more likely a result of Harrison Ford's injuries during filming that left J.J. with little time to spend on some of Han's scenes to perfect the delivery.
>>
>>78297507
I liked Kylo Ren's outbursts, they showed what he really was - an angry teenager. This is what the darkside is about, being ruled by your passions. That's what makes them strong. You even see Ren psyching himself up during the final duel, pounding his chest wound, getting pumped.

Yeah, seriously. Kylo is a good character concept, but the actor looks like a Harry Potter character. Someone in the previous said he'd prefer Gwendoline to be Kylo and honestly I agree. She looks young enough to make it work.
>>
Honestly?

I miss the ninja-Jedi lightsaber battles.

Sure it wouldn't make sense to have one in TFA since there's nobody who could do it, but still.
>>
>>78297403
Unless he himself is connected to the Force, that's not how it works.
>>
>>78297562
>You even see Ren psyching himself up during the final duel, pounding his chest wound, getting pumped.

That's not exactly what it was. He was punching his wound so he could tap into the pain to increase his connection to the dark side.
>>
>>78297535
What do you expect, they all look the same to me
>>
>>78297572
He looks like Tom Hiddleston after a severe beating to the face with treatment by an amateur doctor.
>>
>>78297572
>Harry Potter character
Yes, his name is Snape.
>>
>>78297539
This. His character is outstanding because he's different, he's a villain and powerful, but far from perfect and unstoppable. It's that approach that makes him more than just another Star Wars villain.

No way. He completely sold it. That other role he played as a certain explorer in his fourth movie, that one he was trying too hard in.
>>
>>78297539
Well I might be just we, but I kept thinking about how he was destroying equipment that would have to be replaced, and choking out people for giving him bad news would encourage them to tell Hux instead, undermining his authority. Vader usually dealt these out for failure.
>>
>>78297572
Now to be fair, it grew on me. Eventually I came to like it because he looked like exactly what he was - an awkward fucking teenager.
>>
>>78297562
>ou even see Ren psyching himself up during the final duel, pounding his chest wound, getting pumped.
He wasn't getting pumped, he was using the pain of the wound to stay conscious
>>
>>78297539
We saw him already in Episode 2 and 3 in Anakin and at least we had context on why he was acting like that.

With Kylo so far we have that he likes granddad and hates dad which are not really good reasons.
>>
>>78297415
Dead Guy just seemed like his heart wasn't in it.
Which it wasn't, obviously, he's hated the role since Jedi.

He uploaded his TFA covers so i replaced the separate images with one.

In order from top to bottom are the 6 different ones he's made.
>>
>>78297562
Well still, it wouldn't be that good if he stayed like this in the next film. I hope they show some changes in his attitude from the events of The Force Awakens and from 'completing his training'.
>>
>>78297573
>I miss the ninja-Jedi lightsaber battles.
I don't.

At least not in the movies anyway. Only Episode 1 got it right
>>
>>78297642
>Only Episode 1 got it right

I need another Maul duel.
>>
>>78297636
He never even wanted to come back for Empire. He strongly felt that Han Solo's story arc was complete in that movie since you see him go from disinterested criminal to a hero trying to make a difference and didn't feel there was anything more to get out of the character.
>>
>>78297611
>choking out people for giving him bad news
Exactly like Vader did constantly?

>>78297639
Yeah i'd like to see him develop and become more menacing. or at least more outright psychotic, like an ugly male Azula.

>>78297659
>>78297642
I really liked the sword fighting in this. Good mix of realism and flashy. I'm sure it'll get more hype the more movies come. The Jedi characters need time to develop.

Speaking of which, do you think it's possible Finn is latent? It would explain him freaking out around all the death, it would explain his ability to use a lightsaber even though it's never given any indication he can use anything but a blaster.
>>
Just got back from it, fucking 10/10, this is the Star Wars movie we've been waiting for for 30 years, amazing action, great characters, a fantastic script unlike the SHITTY FUCKING PREQUELS, I wish Abrams was staying for the rest of the movies because he fucking GETS Star Wars
>>
>>78297637

Man all the good ones have at least one that ruins it.

>Top row is fucking great except the first one has the Maul duel with Obi & Qui-Gon...with a Tatooine background?..

>Second and third rows TFA covers don't follow the style at all and so they don't work.

>Fourth one the first two covers look WAY too similar. No idea why they didn't use a day shot of Naboo.

The vehicle ones aren't great but they're probably the most consisten at least.
>>
>>78297699
IDK if i'd go that far, Abrahms has a poison touch when it comes to sequels. I'm glad he's not on the directors chair for the other films. The last thing we need is two more HEY NUDGE NUDGE WINK WINK retreads.
>>
>>78297680
He at least felt like Empire was true to his character. He's always been open about the fact that Jedi was a mess and he thought Han should've died.

>>78297696
>Exactly like Vader did constantly?
He didn't choke people for bad news, just for serious fuckups (or in Motti's case, to prove a point). Kylo's got temper issues, but that's part of his character- he's not as controlled as Vader was, and he's clearly still got some issues to work out that even he admits (both to Vader's helmet and to Han) that he's struggling with.
>>
>>78297696
>Speaking of which, do you think it's possible Finn is latent? It would explain him freaking out around all the death, it would explain his ability to use a lightsaber even though it's never given any indication he can use anything but a blaster.

When he was freaking out at first, i thought the same.

using a light-saber requires reflexes that either force sensitives have or life long mandos.
>>
>>78297696
Mostly for failing him. I don't remember him killing a messenger. Usually he issued orders or went to deal with the bad news instead, didn't he?
>>
>>78297699
I feel the same way. I really don't know that Rian Johnson and Colin Trevorrow can meet, let alone, exceed this film with 8 and 9. I'm a bit worried without JJ to be honest, he was already one of my favorite directors before this film so I had faith in him to begin with.

>>78297741
Well of course he's not as controlled as Vader was - Vader had a legit Jedi masters training (we still dunno who big spooky prune face is) and Vader was also basically dead inside at the time since his waifu and everything he had fought for was destroyed.

He had a chest wound that was pouring blood and it was shown that Rey is just ludicrously powerful in the force, being able to use Jedi level abilities with no idea what she's doing. She's basically Starkiller, IMO

>>78297778
He did that once, and like I said, he was just proving a point. He didn't flip out on Motti and wasn't even trying to kill him, just trying to shut him up.
>>
>>78297796
it took 3 people to simply knock ren on his ass
>>
>>78297778
Oh right.
Though I guess he also did it to prove a point? He was also stopped by someone higher ranked then the guy he was choking.

With Kylo, subordinates will just start informing high ranked officers like Hux that Kylo can't choke and let him find out through them.
>>
You know what I'm really excited for Episode VIII? It's gonna have Rey and Finn separated for a while. Not that they weren't great together, they were, but it's going to be two separate things, Rey figuring shit out with Luke but more importantly,

FINN AND POE'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURES
>>
>>78297778
That's just because Vader looks for any reason to correct authority figures trying to lecture him. Or just kill people that Palpatine wants around out of spite. Vader genuinely has no love for the Empire deep down, so by killing the various high ranking officers around him, it's already a subconscious rebellion against Palpatine, the dark side, and the shitty path he chose.

>She's basically Starkiller, IMO
Eh I wouldn't go that far. Her being able to use the mind trick out of nowhere was dumb, but that was pretty much the only time when.

Okay, and Force-pulling the lightsaber. But that's far from Starkiller level.

It's pretty lame if you don't think about it.

If you do think about it, you realize he had a chest wound the size of a fucking slug in his chest and was clearly going through his own mental issues.

It's not like Rey picked up the saber and started beating him either

People seemed to really respond positively to the zoo topiary sloth trailer at my showing.

Excuse me, but Sarco Plank was one of the most important characters in the movie, and his character arc was one of the most profound and emotional. You could even say he was the key to The Force Awakens, and I think you're out of line for not including him in this poll.

Everyone in the damn theater laughed stupidly loud at the Zootopia one and the Kung-fu Panda 3 one.
>>
Honestly curious what J.J. was thinking with Rey. Luke trained with Obi-Wan and YODA and still struggled to lift rocks and didn't pull off the mind trick until Jedi.

Rey shouldn't even know about the Jedi mind trick and pulls it off without even knowing she's force sensitive. Then she manages to pull off a stronger force pull on the lightsaber than Kylo and then beat him in a lightsaber duel.

There's literally no explanation they could give for why she's so proficient immediately. Even Anakin who was the byproduct of the force shooting its midichlorian juice into Schmi, required training.
>>
>>78297796
Luke got all the force powers. Of course Leia's kid is weak in it.

Him beating her had nothing to do with her being stronger then him in the force. The saber just refused to move for Kylo, it did not move once when he tried to pull it. Also she beat him because the dude had a hole in his chest and Finn messed him up a bit more too.
>>
>>78297917

They whooped and hollered and clapped for every trailer Kung Fu Panda, Jungle Book, that Laika studios one and the Fifth Wave. And then when the Finest Hour trailer showed, which was legitimately the best trailer and the only movie that actually looked good, it was dead silent and one person gave it a pity clap and then the theater laughed.

He's right. I don't even pay attention to the various religious movies that have been coming out, but they trailer tells you the entire story, including the ending. It's baffling that someone thought this was a good idea.

Kylo Ren was Anakin Skywalker done right
>>
>>78297796
Ren had been shot, and not just with a blaster, they made a point of showing multiple times that Chewie's bowcaster packed more destructive power than your average blaster. At one point it blew a stormtrooper's armor to bits. Ren was basically hobbled after having a big ass hole blown in him and he still managed to hold his own against Rey, after defeating Finn no less, both of whom were in perfect physical condition and in Rey's case was already excellent at CQC before she got force powers and a lightsaber.

And that's not even taking into account how focus plays a role in force user duels, Rey was on the 'trust in the force' hike and was completely focused on Ren after what happened with Solo and Finn. Ren on the other hand had just killed his dad and was taking it pretty fucking badly, and had just fought and defeated Finn who had (because of his extensive injuries) scored a decent hit on his one remaining good arm/shoulder.

Of course the poor bastard lost the fight, he needed a fucking sit down and a nice warm glass of milk from papa Snoke before he was ready to deal with those bullies. Poor guy had a fucking rough day.
>>

He's certainly not annoying and insufferable, that's for sure.

The Zootopia sloth trailer by far. Everyone was cracking up. Even the coolio high school basketball dudes in front of me were losing it.

Jungle Book and Civil War got some oohs and aahs, and I think there was another trailer that I don't remember, so it was probably mediocre.

Rey was a boring non-character, she would literaly be a Mary Sue if this was fanfiction

Finn and Poe were highlights of the movie. Their bromance was by far the most endearing part of the movie, and Finn's character growth was really compelling to watch.

Kylo was great until he had extended temper tantrums. I don't mind the occasional destroyed piece of equipment or whatever, but slashing at a wall for almost a minute really took a lot of the threat out of him for me.

Han was good, but his quips didn't feel like Han. I was glad when he diedBecause that means Poe and Finn have more chance to shine.

The plot was a fucking garbage super lazy rehash of A New Hope. Only the names and places were changed.

The destruction of The Republic was stupid. No emotional impact of buildup, no actual importance other than "Rebel V Empire" status quo. it was genocide porn, short and simple, and it really fucking draggged the movie down for me.

7/10 still better than AOTC.

>>78298319
>They literally called the movie Batman VERSUS Superman and then spoil in the trailer that they get over their problem and team up to take on the real bad guy. AND SPOILED WHO THE REAL BAD GUY WAS.
To be fair, that was kind of expected. But yeah, the movie looks awful.

His acting is certainly better.

Ren is going for a different thing than Anakin though
>>
>>78297951
She is a Skywalker and learned how to use the force when Luke trained her in his academy. Rey's mind got wiped and Kylo left her on Jakku to die without him getting his hands dirty. She didn't learn to use the force in this movie, the force just awakened in her again.

Maybe I'm wrong, but this would be a good explanation for her being so strong already.
>>
>>78298477
Honestly I prefer it that way. Following the Jedi way is Luke's thing, I always thought it was unnecessary for Leia to train as a Jedi. Maybe just hone some of her Force connection, but not pick up a lightsaber and start flipping around and Force-pushing things.

I like that they kept her as a military leader who maintains a connection to the Force but isn't trying to follow in her brother's footsteps.
>>
>>78298390
>They were giving out a free Phasma.
bullshit. I got Poe and FO trooper.

I like the FO trooper though. dat counter attack ability, yo.
>>
I feel like TFA was like an opposite prequel. All the acting was way better than the characters given.
>>
>>78298527
It's either that or he really wants to bury his lightsaber in her force conduit. I kinda pinged him for the obsessed autist who wants his Waifu to love him.
>>
>>78298527
It would be an explanation. It wouldn't be a good one. That said, no matter what explanation they offer it's still a lazy way of offering Jedi Stuff in The New Star Wars Movie. It's still cheap and unearned. The damage is done. It won't make TFA a better movie, though the sequels might provide a better overall story.
>>
>>78298180
Yes and Driver is one of the best actors Star Wars ever had. Completely stole the movie for me.
>>
>>78298533
The Force connection thing shows when she senses Han's death.
>>
>>78298538

I've had the FO Trooper for a while now. But I signed in yesterday and it was like here's your free Phasma. My friend got Poe too though so maybe it varied. Phasma is pretty good support. Now I have three First Order characters too and they all get buffs together.

>>78298486
Hux going to consult Snoke about what to do was pretty stupid, yeah. I know they had to set up the next one, but Hux could've been talking to him on his ship while he was evacuating.

"Where is Kylo?"
"We have him onboard sir, we're treating his wounds"
"Bring him to me, I'll complete his training"

And there, that's it. Instead the guy goes all the way to the big audience chamber to talk to the giant hologram while the place is falling apart and seriously asks him what he should do. What kind of idiot does that?
>>
>>78298533
>yfw she trains in it and she gets battle mediation to turn the tide of battles

It didn't really bother me because abandoning such a vital and expensive part of the First Order isn't an easy decision to make.
>>
>>78298533
Same. I loved that Leia didn't become a Jedi but at least trained a bit in understanding the force.
>>
>>78298570
I hope she's not in the next movie, with Han dead there's no reason for that dried out coke head to appear and ruin the film with her lack of acting.

I think it's pretty stupid desu. She's literally intentionally gimping herself, the resistance and the future of the Jedi because???

Oh and look how it turned out. She has a son and because she never bothered with the force she sends her son away and he resents her for it and ends up trying to be like his grandfather.

GOOD JOB LEIA
>>
>>78298564
I've used Phasma a few times as an ally character, and have to agree. Her and my genosian soldier helps with bonus attacks, and the Troopers counter attacks all lead to some quick build up in damage.

So what do you think the TWEEEST on the Rey/Finn romance will be? obviously with them pushing it so fucking hard, something has to make it not happen in the next movie or two. They can't pull the 'secretly related' thing this time either, cause...well, you know.
>>
>>78298697
>>
>>78298618
It is when it's literally the only thing you can do. The place was blowing apart, what did Hux think Snoke was going to do, tell him "oh go find the explosion-prevention override switch in corridor 2, that'll fix everything"
>>
>>78298761
I honestly thought that scene was going to end with Snoke saying "You have failed me... Perish for your trespass" or some shit and leave him to die.

Snoke so far seems pretty fucking reasonable for an evil overlord. Even when his minions are being shit, he doesn't berate them too badly.

Cad Bane
Phasma

Training up my First Order Trooper and First Order TIE Pilot right now so I can use them with Phasma.

Sheev is fucking amazing. Just had a battle where everyone else died on 3/3 but him and he was against three Jedi. He dodged or reflected nearly everything they tried to do and gained health back every time he hit them and solo'd the wave.

You have to wonder how they escaped notice when their operation involves sucking up suns. I can see the Death Stars escaping detection because they're moon-sized, but if suns start disappearing someone is going to notice.

I've gotten really lucky with draws. And after a couple days you can usually afford to buy a character from the Squad Arena Shipment and Squad Cantina Shipment. Ahsoka for example was only 25 crystals and each Squad Cantina shipment of her got you 5. So I got her real quick.

It's addicting as shit and it doesn't feel like the microtransactions bend you over TOO hard. I've got a decent amount of characters and always feel like I'm making progress. And there's a bunch of different arenas that all go off their own energy so it feels like there's never a point where I can't battle when I want to and energy stacks over max as well. And every character has like three unique skills. There are time you can just auto-battle through but there's been a lot of times where I needed to manually map out the battles myself and put some strategy into it.

A diehard devotion to Palpatine that likely runs in her family. The First Order, aside from brainwashed Stormtroopers, is made up of fanatical zealots who thought the post-Endor Empire was full of retarded Moffs and Governors not worth following because it devolved into petty squabling over scraps, so the soldiers followed their military leaders, and what's implied to be Snoke, off to hide and rebuild.

I feel like there was one more, but I forgot. No Zootopia.

None of them got huge reactions, since they've mostly been out for a while. But it was clear that everyone in the theater had OPINIONS about BvS, especially once Wonder Woman showed up, because the chatter went up a lot at that point.

For me, though? Warcraft got me fucking hype. I hadn't seen that trailer yet, and it looks great. Even if it's not a good movie, the aesthetic is perfect.

Yeah I don't know if it's because they're new and I'm not used to them but everything in the PT felt like Star Wars.

Despite the practical effects none of the background characters in TFA felt like Star Wars. It's kinda peculiar. Dunno if George was behind creature design but maybe that was it?

The stand out aliens in TFA were Nien Nunb and Akbar so...

There was a weird trend towards orange toad/lizard-looking aliens, too. There were a few designs that were alright but none that really stand out, and there wasn't a lot of diversity in the designs.

To me, it felt too much like the alien races he added to the Star Trek reboot films which were out of place there already. I liked the insect guys playing a game in Maz's place though.

I'm pretty sure she instinctively tapped into the Force when she was being interrogated by Kylo Ren. She accidentally got into his head. Additionally, Ren was basically using the Jedi mind trick to try to coerce into showing him the map. She's not retarded, if somebody is using the force to manipulate her mind I think she would realize that she could potentially do the same.

What if they aren't related at all, and she actually led him to the dark side just like Revan led Malak? Then she got captured and mindwiped and he thought she was dead or something. His hesitation to kill her is his love for her coming back, the only good left in him despite her turning him to darkness. Over the course of the trilogy he progressively starts to go back to the light and she falls back to the dark, culminating in a very Shakespearean final duel.

Do you even cinematography? Far more focus was put on a connection to Luke and then his friends and family. Han and Leia didn't mention her, and in context, that's either damning of Kylo/Rey sibling-hood or JJ going full Lucas in terms of dialogue, which he avoided fine for the rest of the movie. It's more /poetic/ if they're cousins too, think about it.

No, there are other visual dictionaries out there. The OT got one, and each of the prequels had one.

They're just full of stuff that isn't canon anymore since they reference a lot of EU stuff. So in a way, Ultimate Star Wars is the closest the other movies have to a visual dictionary that's in line with the new canon.

>When he first heard of the girl, he snapped like in the movie, but it was is implied there was more to the story. When he found she was "just" a scavenger, he seemed dissapointed but still interested since she has a strong affinity to the Force.

>However, in their duel, when she snags the lightsaber from him, he says: "It is you".

>Their encounter also ended when Hux came and dragged him onboard a shuttle.

>Snoke also knows who Rey is. He even told Kylo he sensed that he had compassion for her.

>During Reys interrogation it was kind of implied that Kylo hit a wall in her mind, before she managed to turn it around and enter his.

>During a Leia/Han-scene, Leia said that Snoke had followed Kylo since he was a small boy, whispering in his ear and Leia had tried to shield him from Snokes influence.

Thinking about getting TFA Visual Dictionary and Ultimate Star Wars. They're both on sale right now. Anybody have them? Opinions? Also curious about the art book

Depends. In the last 7-8 months they ended up getting a fairly complete layout of the movie, but people saying "MSW was 100% right!" forget that MSW also reported a lot of shit that was flat-out wrong before then (and up through that time). Not just his speculations, but stuff he said came from insiders.

For example, a year ago he reported that Hutts would be in the movie, based on having seen concept art of Leia talking to them, and also his insider within the production confirmed it because he had seen the Hutt puppets being built.

Prequel combat makes sense - entire cultures of force sensitives who've developed centuries of fighting styles.

Original Trilogy - Only Ben, Vader and Palpatine understand lightsaber combat.

Sequel Trilogy - slow resurgence of knowledge. The combat was a fusion of the prior styles, the fighting combat is still tense, but it has fast fluid motion.

It's like poetry, the Sequels will be between the Prequels and the Originals in terms of everything - it rhymes.

Why wouldn't Han talk about it that way... one of his best friends is a Jedi, his wife is force-sensitive, and so is his son.

I feel like he needs to be redeemed to not make Han's death meaningless. Han believed in his son and he sacrificed himself because he thought there was still good in him. He knew there was a chance he would die, but he did it anyway because he truly loved his son.
If Kylo just stays evil and dies as a villain, Han would have been wrong and his decision would look foolish to us. But if Kylo turns to the light and actually becomes a hero, it's a huge win for Han because he was right, just like Luke was right about Vader.

And the people who think redeeming Kylo would be too much like redeeming Vader clearly haven't seen a well executed heel-face turn yet. There are many ways to turn a bad guy good without him having to sacrifice himself in the final scenes of the third movie. Kylo could for example become an anti hero who hates himself and Snoke for killing his father and redeem himself by taking down the people who manipulated him the whole time. We've never seen a real anti hero in Star Wars before. Someone like Driver could easily pull that off.

Neither, she's the daughter of Count Dooku, who had his sperm frozen, decades later Mara Jade found the container for it in the Emperor's old archives and mistaking it for a dildo, warmed it up and used it on herself.

So is it true TFA is just IV with better effects and names changed?
>>
Just finished watching the OT with my friend and his dad who saw the OT in theaters in the 80s. Yub Nub is the most awkward fucking scene to watch with someone else. I also tried to not get kind of emotional seeing Vader dying and then seeing Luke burning his body knowing what happens in TFA.

Tomorrow we're going to all go see TFA. I can't wait to see his reactions to Kylo being Han's son, Luke fucking up and not making the new Jedi, and Vader's redemption being misinterpreted.

Also I just thought of something. What do you guys think Kylo's thoughts on Anakin during the Clone Wars are? Do you think he pities him since he wasn't yet willing to give into his anger and kill Dooku (therefore ending the war) the many times he encountered him in TCW? I bet he sees the Clone Wars as the Jedi just prolonging the war more and more because of their weird morality and further making the galaxy more and more chaotic while holding Anakin back. Then the final nail in the coffin for him is probably when Obi Wan cut Anakin's limbs off and burned him in Episode 3. You could easily misinterpret that as the Jedi being complete fuck ups who hold people back, turn on their own, and were so incompetent that they let the Clone Wars go on and on and on.
>>
>>78303270
More or less. There's a few elements that don't align perfectly and some stuff taken from ESB and ROTJ, but for the most part it's the same story as ANH.
>>
Watching the movie, i felt that Ray ended up taking Finns place as main protag jedi. The movie starts off as finns story but immediately dumps him after they meet Han. Really jarring.

>>78303270

No. It's got plot similarities but the characters and details are very different.

Also it's fun, go see it.

Kylo/Ben and Rey will swap roles in part two.

Ben struggles with being evil and it was more or less outright stated that he is trying to be evil not for lack of caring but because he cares too much, if he's evil he doesn't have to feel the pain of weakness or guilt or fear.

Rey is too headstrong, and the way she fought after "feeling the force" was mostly reminiscent of Luke in Jedi when he goes apeshit and just smashes through Vader's defense like a wild animal.

Similar beats, but not 1:1

Ep IV was about destroying the Death Star. Ep VII is not about destroying Starkiller.

Anyone else feel like Han and Leia's emotions over Kylo fell extremely flat because we missed 30 years an Kylo's entire life.

We hear them talk about shit but never actually had the chance to become invested. So when Han is whining about wanting his son back I don't FEEL it because I've only known his son as a prick and never known Han as a father.

I'll be honest, this is one of the things that disappoints me about this film. It does feel very strongly like a reimagining rather than trying to advance the plot of the Star Wars universe. Too much playing safe by executives.
>>
>>78303275
Kylo wants to be strong, strong has Vader. Regardless of how much of Anakin's history he knows, I think he views Anakin's 'rise' to the dark side as when he was his strongest.

Kylo is obviously going through some inner turmoil, and he probably sees Vader's experience has his solution.

Han sacrificed himself by confronting his son, knowing that Ren could kill him. Han could've easily avoided this situation by not going after him, but he did it anyway, because he loved Ben. This scene made Han Solo arguably the biggest hero in the saga. Obi Wan, Luke, Rey... they could always live through the force and Obi Wan knew that when he confronted Vader in ANH, but Han can't use the force. He can never come back again, but he still made the brave decision to try to get his son back. I think any loving father would've done the same, which is why this scene is so powerful. It was the perfect end to Han's character arc and it will be remembered as one of the greatest scenes in the saga.

>Ep VII is not about destroying Starkiller.
Which is why even including it was bizarre. Even the characters don't seem all that concerned about it, it apparently destroyed the Republic capital and several other inhabited worlds and killed billions but the response from everyone is just "wow, that's bad, I guess we should stop it." All the Starkiller plot does is detract from the search for Luke, which until then had been the main plot. The movie tries to then have both plots running at the same time and it just weakens them both: we get a Super Death Star plot that's not well introduced and feels completely secondary, and we get a Search for Luke plot that goes by the wayside in the third act only to get suddenly picked up again at the end and very quickly wrapped up.
>>
>>78303432

That's exactly my problem. We had this 30 year skip and we're just expected to take everything at face value. But the pacing is so ridiculously fast I don't feel like I ever got a chance to get acclimated to everything going on.

There feels like there's an entire movie missing inbetween.

I think once VIII comes out and we get more backstory it will improve VII by proxy by a ton.

Honestly I feel like it made him the biggest chump because it was so obvious what was coming. It did more for Kylo than it did for Han.

Really Han looks pathetic throughout the whole thing. He doesn't go out on top as the great hero and general he was in the OT. He has a son who they pawn off on Luke because they don't know how to be parents and then he runs away from his problems for decades acting like a child again until his son finally kills him for being a shitty father.

That is the biggest issue with the movie with me, that apparently the foundation of the galactic government (the Senate) has been destroyed and nobody seems to really care all that much. In a movie that otherwise does a good job of ramping up tension when it needs to, destroying Hosnian was a huge flatline, which makes me wonder why it was even in the movie other than as a ANH reference.
