THIS THREAD WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS. Don't complain. there is a serious lack of what I can do with bbcode here I know many people on this community have already seen episode VII, so I thought it might be fun to get everyone's thoughts on it. My thoughts: Pros: 1. Humor. There were several amusing moments in this film, and it didn't seem incredibly forced like episode I Jar Jar. Some moments in particular, such as "That's not how the force works" and BB8's thumbs up, were great. Unlike the original series, which was stiff and practically devoid of humor apart from Han's quick wit, and the prequels, which basically had a poor mixture of out of place humor and serious matters, the jokes in episode VII seemed to fit nicely. 2. Better fights. It's no surprise that the graphics and details would be better. The fight scenes were great, Poe Dameron is a fun character I hope to see more of, and the forest lightsaber battle was really impressive, though I think it's odd that Rey would have been able to defeat a trained sith-like person like that. 3. New characters. Don't get me wrong; I love Han, Lando, Luke, etc, but it's nice to see a new cast of characters in the films. I'm looking forward to seeing what they end up doing with them. Cons: 1. My brother used the term "remastered" instead of remake, which I think fits this movie nicely. It has so many similar things to a new hope, but on a larger scale. And really? It sucks the power of the sun? Is Dr. Evil making up these plans? 2. Unexplained things. The original trilogy was guilty of this as well, but there are so many answers I want right now. Who is Snoke? How did the KoR form? How did they wipe out Luke's jedi-in-training? It sort of reminded of the hobbit, where they set up all these questions and plot twist to get people to keep watching, and then finish up with a ridiculous ending. Episode VII ended on a cliff hanger. Did you see what I did there? 3. It felt like a pilot episode. Introducing all the big players: ( Hux, Kylo Ren, Snoke, Rey, Finn, Poe, you get the gist ) for the next movie, where things will actually happen. With Phasma being in episode eight, it's official that no "actual" villains died. The only important person that was killed was Han, and that just felt out of place. 4. Small point, but they just blew up a planet and no one batted an eye. I know ep. 4 did this too, but it just seems so stupid. Millions, possibly billions, just died, and there's nothing said about it. another thing- I was looking at the images of Ben Solo / Kylo and it reminded me of a fan artwork Ben Skywalker from the EU. Anyone else see the resemblance? Spoiler: Large pictures Feel free to discuss about it, but keep it civil. Tagging @Alpha Wolfy because he co-starred in the movie.
