    Re: So.. The new Star Wars Movie..

    I watched it Thursday evening with a few mates, going in super excited.

    My take, no spoilers:

    The good
    The CGI, the props the everything really screamed big budget. The eyecandy was awesome.
    The Disney influence is clear, in a good way. Subtle yet hilarious side characters.

    The bad
    The story in my opinion sucked ballz. It felt like the main story went nowhere and the side story in retrospect was meaningless.

    Another way to look at it in a less negative light, would be to see the movie as an event rather than a story or even chapter. A few pages of a chapter even.

    Looking at the movie critic reviews, my opinion is that of the minority, but the whole of the minority seems to dislike it for the same reason.



    EDIT: I'll post what I enjoyed and dislike in more detail Monday as well. With a big spoiler banner on top.

    Re: So.. The new Star Wars Movie..

    I enjoyed the movie, although i had retarded seals clapping hands in the cinema at the Luke scene. Which was weird. But overall I enjoyed the humor.

    Main events was good but felt something lacking. Still a must watch. Watched it in IMAX 3D and hated the 3D part. Go watch 2D, save some cash and dignity.

    So, a Star Wars parody. Nice, because I enjoyed Space Balls.

    Re: So.. The new Star Wars Movie..

    Ok..

    My thoughts on the movie.

    I was disappointed with this movie and hoped for more.

    - I felt that they did not expand on the previous movie well enough and just killed of karakters and introduced new ones. This made the storyline flat.
    - They killed snooke, after all the suspense on building his karakter, he was displayed just briefly in 1 scene and killed. They should have kept him a bit longer and expand on his karakter, where he came from why his face was like that, was he regenerating, how did he look before etc, did he need something from the force to be completed (like the mummy kind of thing) etc etc
    - The island training part/scene with luke and rey was meh. Yodas brief appearance and lightning scene flaming the tree also did not make sense unless he knew rey already took the books. This was also not shown and left questionmarks as well.
    - Leia did not get killed in the movie so I wonder how they will do that in the next one.
    - Reys parents where done of as scum traders so everyone has potential to the force, which they have been trying to sell since they made finn force sensitive and now expanding on that. Why not make here a child of Obi wan or some other older jedi, or even a sister to Ben Solo. The boy at end was just another random introduction. This kills the skywalker bloodline story and now derives from this. I guess they ran out of ideas.
    - So much more could have been done with the force tree concept instead of an old tree stump. Introduced in the comics first, this is a lot of untapped potential.
    - They should have blown up the casino town. The casino town was just like another alien joint like in the previous movies, not really original.
    - The traitor codemaster was lame.
    - Luke dissapearing ends him as a figure. Basicly now han solo is gone, luke is gone and leia passed away in real life, there is little of the "old star wars" left . Its not about some space war all the time between an aliance fleet and an rebel fleet or some shooting at a random rebel base. They should have expanded on the old story more instead of just regurgitating space wars, rebel base shooting. Like, find a real old jedi temple not some stone huts on an island in ireland. Make its spectatcular, almost tombraider old like.



    So much more could have been done. Kyber crystals, Jedi story, Force tree story, Knights of Ren, the Sith, why where there jedi temples etc etc

    I thought it was pretty cool, there could have been more stuck into it but for it was positive.

    I watched it in 4dx as well which was super awesome haha. They need to install some seatbelts for the fighting scenes though
