    I thought it was horribly written, lacked creativity, plot, character development and fun. Instead it was boring, someone behind me fell asleep, felt totally off in atmosphere, seemed to me acting was just awful.

    I don't have all the canon baggage, so I wasn't outrages every time a Tie fighter wasn't portrayed "correctly."

    For reference, I have an extension collection of Hammer films and ALL the Gojira movies. (I don't complain when they say he's "Fifty meters tall" and the ten storey buildings barely come up to his ankle.)

    It was a good movie. It is rather funny how some hyper fans are so upset. I think someone should tell them that these are just movies we are talking about.

    I would have had Luke defeat Snoke and Rey fight kylo for the ending.

    It was okay. I expected a lot because the previous film was damn near perfect. This iteration felt slightly goofy, with some very bizarre plot points and humour.

    Regardless, I still enjoyed it immensely.

    I found the plot both contrived and dull. (One would think you wouldn't easily get that combination. If it's contrived, then why would they contrive to make it dull?)

    That would have been heretical to a younger me - I am a big fan - but I actually found myself rolling my eyes every time the story came back around to "The Voyage of the Damned" plotline.

    I haven't seen it but have watched a lot of YouTube reviews. Asked my son what he thought and his opinions changed after he had time to digest the movie. I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD and feel no urgency to see it now.

    Yeah, now they are just movie products. Used to be works of cinematic art. Some people see the difference.

    There are still cinematic works of art, but there was never a comic book movie that was a cinematic work of art. It's holding the source material to an unreasonable standard to expect to get a work of art out of that pig's ear.
