    So what did you think about Episode VII? And what do you think about the stand-alines coming up like Rogue One?

    I thought Rey was a GREAT character, but I agree with you about Kylo Ren. They really dropped the ball on that one. And I thought the casting of Adam Driver was terrible. Overall, I liked it. I think you have to put yourself in the mindset of a 7 year-old to really appreciate the movie. It was a bit too much of a rehash of the plot points of Episode IV, but I think it works as a stand-alone film.

    Well, it's owned by Disney and their goal is to generate an audience for a whole new sub-franchise of films. As much as they're trying to appeal to original fans, I think the main goal is to appeal to young people. Nothing wrong with that.

    Agreed, I didn't like Adam Driver acting in that role. Everyone kept saying this movie had a lot of nostalgia for long-time fans, but I just felt it was a rehashed version of previous Star Wars movies. I was really underwhelmed after watching it. Rey was a good character as well as the storm trooper runaway and pilot. I can't even remember any of these character's names!

    I actually rematched it last week. It wasn't nearly as interesting the 2nd time.

    I read that people were bitching about The Force Awakens because it was too similar to A New Hope and now people are complaining about The Last Jedi being too different from some notion of how Star Wars movies should be. I'm still not sure if I should watch it in theaters or wait for it to come out for renting. :confused:

    Well, if it is a theater experience, the movie would have to be really good because it would have to be good enough for me to be willing to sit through while needing to go pee or poop pretty badly. :)
