    Watch the trailers. In one of them he walks into the front door of a saloon somewhere up North out of a blizzard bare chested carrying somebody over his shoulder. Dumps him on the floor grabs a bottle of booze takes a slug and with the bottle in hand walks back out into the storm. This ain’t the Hanna-Barbara cartoon Aguaman.

    Can I getta AYYYYYYYMEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNNN to that.

    I mean, I completely agree.

    I thought Rogue One was great - once they werent lumbered with feeling like they had to just retell Star Wars all over again - it was nice being liberated from that.

    My issues with The Farce Awakens included, the retelling of Star Wars, the crap and unconvincing "tormented bad guy", the crap "tormented stormtrooper with a conscience," and the fact that this chick suddenly had jedi powers WITHOUT TRAINING! Jeez.

    When I watched Force Awakens I have the feeling there was a check list. R2D2? check! 3CPO, Check!, Evil Empire, check! Chewbaca, Check! Etc, etc..... they didn’t do Jar-Jar-Binks so they folded his character into Kylo Ren a singularly underwelming evil guy. But how can you take seriously an evil guy who was evilized by Supreme Leader Snoke, I wonder what they were smoking when they came up with that name. Hmmm Snoke......toke.....:beatnik:
    In action Science fiction movies Marvel Studios rules.

    Looking forward to Thor, JL, and Star..

    I also agree Rogue One was way better than Force.

    I'm Star Wars out. Tired of it all. No good well thought out plots anymore. Seems everything is for the shallow youngsters with nose prints on their smart phones.

    I'm probably in the minority but I liked The Force Awakens. I watched the original trilogy with my Mom (first SW in the back of our station wagon at a drive-in) and have fond memories of being a kid and being awestruck at the magic of movies. I didn't much care for the prequels, although the last one was OK. Force Awakens reminded me of being a kid, when I could set aside all belief in reality and just enjoy something for the sake of enjoying it, not having to dissect it. It was fun. The icing on the cake was that I got to see it with my two boys, and the enjoyment they, as kids, got from it. It's easy to be cynical, grumpy and uneasy to please (I'm all three myself). Sometimes it's nice to be like a kid and just enjoy something for the sake of enjoying it.

    Well it wasn't bad. Better than the prequels but not as good as Rogue One.

    I think Lucas dropped ball from the get go by telling a great story and then taking a long break only to come back and tell the story before the story. Now are back to continuing the original story so many years later.

    Hard to maintain any momentum when you jumping around so much.

    I liked The Force Awakens, wanted more but that was as I was enjoying it. i liked some fresh faces in it too, including the droid, but most of all i liked the character Rey.
    Rogue One was OK, I think the reason was it seemed same old same old to me anyway, but i did like it.

    Will definitely watch The Last Jedi
