    I thought it was pretty poor too, however my 9 year old loved it. My biggest issues were (and yes, i'm sure they've been commented on earlier in the thread)

    Leia spacewalk - just cringey
    Snoke - who was he? where did he come from? would have loved to know a bit more about his background. Also his death - rubbish. All that power but didn't see any of that coming.
    The casino scence - just dull, and 95% pointless
    Luke - milking that 'thing', his death. both awful for different reasons. One embarassing, one highly dissapointing.
    The rebel ship trying to escape at exactly, and i mean exactly, the same speed as the Star Destroyer. It never pulled away by 5 yards, nor lost ground either.

    I'm sure that some could put me right on one or two things but i'm not that bothered. My 9 year old love it and to me that is what is important.

      Just one little flaw in the main story on TLJ.
      The resistance were going to eventually burn all their fuel being chased.

      I'm not a scientist by any means, but once they're at max speed, just turn the ignition off and they'll coast along nicely for as long as they want... Right?

      This is a very good example of the very selective criticism that superficially sounds justified but is ultimately just navel-gazing. Ben Shapiro is right that the gravitational force in space is much weaker BUT he's arbitrarily applying physics from the real world into specific scenes but doesn't have any problem with there being normal gravity within a spaceship that allows people to walk normally, for water leaking out of a suit to drop to the ground or cute creatures splatter against windows when the Millenium Falcon makes a sharp turn.

      What's more if you want a real world solution to the conundrum of falling bombs in space then you don't need to look any further than a target-locating system within the bombs. I'm genuinely puzzled by what these critics hope to achieve with this nit-picking.
      Its not just nit picking though, its standard sci-fi lore among many aspects that were wrong with it, a good film for 7 to 12 year olds and thats about it.

      HNY and go fry a Porg.

      In our reality yes. If star wars was sci-fi then this would be a problem, but as it is fantasy it is fine. There is some atmosphere is star wars space...hence the sounds and banking and turning abilities of the craft in the dogfights. So it does fit that they need constant thrust as there is some friction in star wars space.

      This well thought out video sums up my feels on TLJ. I urge even those who dislike the film to give it a watch.

      Pretty much sums up my take on it. Nicely put together.

      We did imax waterloo last week, and loved it.

      If anyone's in Westfield, Shepherds Bush, London, then this is the bomb.

      Only around 20 mins long once kitted up, but brilliant immersive VR, living the SW dream. Of, and my 11 year old was blown away too.

      Anyone else think Snokes backstory could eventually become a stand alone film (and possibly Rey's early life / parents story as one too?)

      Don't the 'rear deflectors' use fuel? I saw it on opening day +1 so can't remember the details now

      I'm sure Disney think so.
      Nearly.

      I hope not. I couldn't stand the character and the whole 'it's Andy Serkis so lets just CGI the crap out of him' made Snoke seem a bit of a joke.
      My uncle was born in America.
      But he was one of the lucky ones. He managed to escape in a balloon during the Jimmy Carter presidency.
