    I had watched the majority of it a couple weeks ago but the stream I was using was deleted. I only just managed to get my hands on another to watch the last part of it.

    I was shocked by Han Solo's death, but I guess it was expected with the whole father-son troubles - much like in the first trilogy, one of them has to die.

    I've got mixed feelings about the ending though, I don't quite understand why the producers chose to show Luke... why didn't they keep it a secret? I think we all wanted a cliffhanger.


    Did you guys enjoy the film?

    I liked it tbh, nothing big to fault it on really. Although I really wish Kylo Ren kept his mask on for longer. Maybe before the confrontation with Han

    I found it very enjoyable, I watched it twice in December in cinema, once at the midnight release.

    I loved the part at the beginning when Kylo stops the blaster bolt, it looked sick in 3D. The music was stellar, just amazing tbh.

    Yeah, I agree with that too - too soon, too soon.

    I do not wish to be slaughtered but I am not a great Star Wars fan.
    Every time I sit and watch I promise myself
    "this time I will see what the rest see and get excited"
    It has not yet happened.

    Don't worry I've had friends who feel the same way about Harry Potter and LOTR

    Star Wars The Force Awakens was just the original trilogy repeated with things made a bit bigger.

    What were your thoughts on Rens crossguard? Personally I really liked it, but I seem to be in the minority in that lol.
    Also was Finn supposed to be dead at the end? I couldn't tell :lol:

    I don't get why people hate so much, it looks badass!
    I'd liked to have seen Kylo do some lightning too thinking back on it. Would've helped distinguished him from Vader a bit, especially because his force abilities are what's special him. But I think there may be a reason they didn't show him using any dark side force powers, I can sorta feel a redemption arc for him in the works

    I quite enjoyed it. Yes, it did have a lot of similarities to A New Hope but it was a really good film in it's own right. I watched it in IMAX in December and have downloaded it in Bluray now. Will be watching it again after I've re-watched some of the other big releases from last year (particularly Furious 7 and Jurassic World).

    Anyone else super-excited for Rogue One and Episode VIII?

    I liked it... but the fact they used the death star (no matter what people say it was the death star) for the third time left a bitter taste in my mouth.

    Shame you didn't watch the trilogies chronologically

    You'll enjoy it very much though.

    You know what, I don't if I am.

    I watched the teaser trailer and I wasn't blown away. It looked quite dull. I shall wait till the official trailer comes out.
