Well, I’ve seen the latest Star Wars movie, and I am sorry to say I am disappointed.
Too much of the story feels like disguised fragments of the original trilogy. Too often it feels like characters needlessly draw out their actions solely for the sake of prolonged tension. Granted, I liked Rey’s journey, and I liked Kylo Ren’s inner conflict, but too much felt like a heavy handed callback to famous scenes from the original three.
For more specific remarks, keep reading. Warning, this may get a little ranty from time to time. Also, apologies if some topics end up out of order.
