Pleasently surprised. The plot was unique enough to keep me intrigued. After the last episode I was fearful this would be a recycle...

Gave it an 8. It did kinda drag on but a solid Star Wars movie.

I doubt Snoke is dead and be interesting who is Rey’s parents. Basically episode 8 said nothing.

...I felt the same way. A part of me thought it dragged out too long but the action sequences were great... graded it a solid 8

How can someone answer that question? You have to tell me what you thought was surprising so I can tell you that it wasn't.

I think a lot of the issues are a lot of people had something totally different in their heads. Like they wrote a script in their minds and when it didn't go the way they wanted it to, they were upset. I understand you were hoping to see this or that and you didn't....but doesn't mean it still wasn't entertaining. Which it was.
Being a rip off of Star Wars was one of many complaints about TFA. As with the last movie, TLJ seems it was written by people who don't care about writing a good story at all. TFA and TLJ are fan fiction level bad writing.

Disliking the movie has nothing to do with perceptions of that sort. What people want is good, tight storywriting, and the writing of TLJ failed miserably to deliver it.

Snoke could be plegisus and come back and I am not buying that reys parents are whom ren stated. Remember obiwan mislead Luke who his fatherIS.

WATCHED TFA last night and it's better than I originally gave it. More and more I watch them all rogue one is climbing my rankkngs

We'll just have to agree to disagree then. I enjoyed it quite a bit. This one seems to be more polarizing than any of the others. People seem to love it or hate it. I walked out feeling my $8 was a good entertainment investment for me.

Some people think bourbon is better than scotch. You just can't account for bad taste.

Or maybe you were expecting scotch when really bourbon was all you're going to get.

No one expects picture of the year from Star Wars but what we're getting is Black Velvet when the standard used to be Ardbeg.

No. It was quality. Maybe you were expecting godfather 1 & 2 level movies. Even at their best, I wouldn't put star wars on that level.

Do you think Return of the Jedi is better than Empire Strikes Back?

Not exactly but it doesn’t take an ultimate authority to sort out bad from good

Finally saw this film, and it was OK. Typical Star Wars film that was fun but didn't move the ball forward very much. A few thoughts from a cinema perspective:

1) Disney must have read the positive feed back on the war like scenes of Rogue One. The opening is basically a WW 2 air battle film with the tactics and terminology like calling the main battle ship a Dreadnought. Then the final battle is a WW 1 scene complete with soldiers in a trench and an advancing army in an early 20th century style charging formation with a "Big Bertha" type artillery gun ready to cause maximum destruction on the fortified position.

2) The cast continues to look like the UN. I am OK with that as long as the talent is there but it really does come across as forced. I do still have a big issue with the casting of the villain(s). Snoke was probably the best but still very week compared to other Darths in the series. I wish Snoke had Kylo Ren keep on the mask as Adam Driver is not a good actor plus the shirtless scene was creepy. Also, if we are in the age of female power in the resistance why not a female villain that stands out? Finn's old boss was on the screen for a minute and wasn't very developed. How about a Darth Chick in a burka? That would really fire up the conversation.

3) This thing was way too long, the producer should have stepped in and cut down the fat.

A few thoughts from a story perspective:

1) I'm OK with the suspension of disbelief aspects since this is epic fiction, it happens in a lot of these types of stories.

2) The above being said I really wished someone of note on the good guys side died to create some tension in the story. Yeah Luke moves on to a new plane but as he told Kylo Ren he will be around.

3) So Leia puts out the SOS call, I wonder who will answer? It would be real fun if it is some of the weird species from the I-III Jedi Council that have developed Jedi skills they have been covertly practicing on their own answer the call. It would be cool too if some A-Kicking Wookies show up to lend a hand. I don't want to see any lame creatures like Ewoks, or Gungans.

Thought it would be worse than it was reading comments on here.

Definitely didn't like the Leia scene where she floated through space, not because of it wouldn't be possible but because it seemed like stupid writing.

So the new social media thing from this film is the Kylo Ren challenge, basically folks are taking selfies of themselves in that creepy scene where Kylo is wearing only a high-waisted pant.
