Whoa! That's some seriously perspective-bending art there! I'd be terrified to step off the curb.

Since when did Thomas the Tank Engine's steampunk doppelanger get trapped in the engine compartment of an X-wing fighter?

WOW

Expect to be pinned to your seat

Wow

In no particular order and trying desperately to not do spoilers and just in case I'll hide it

Well done BB8. Luke WTF? OOH dirty trick R2. Oh No Leia!!!- you did what??? Those things are so cute. Union dispute? Evil BB8? BB8 did what now? Hooray BB8! What a way to start a fire. How has Luke done that?

I expect a specific Finn costume will be Cosplayed to the horror of con organisers world wide.

WOW WOW WOW - I didn't finish my popcorn!

And what an ending!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I REALLY liked it! It was so surprising and unexpected.

I understand a lot of fan complaints, but I also think the way the characters are this time, how they behaved, was just more realistic. Almost like they weren't following a script to make plot happen.
Outmaneuvered on all counts, I opt to change the rules.

I enjoyed it but I kept getting the feeling of déjà vu, in the there were resonances of Episode IV.
Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Holdo was stunning. She was captivating. I would watch the film just for her character.
