    Bro, this might be the first time I ask you to not spoiler tag a review. I won’t be able to resist going to the dark side and click. I did for TFA.

    Have you seen the original trilogy? You can skip force awakens if you have

    I've avoided almost everything for star wars this time around. Have only seen one trailer and whatever commercials pop up. Have read no articles, fan forums, or any deep dive stuff at all. I think it will make a huge difference when I see it next week.

    This is it, and I'll remember me saying it.. If this movie isn't at least an 8/10, I will never listen to first reactions ever, ever again.

    Im pretty sure he is playing the jilted bitter ex-boyfriend role these days. He was not happy with Force Awakens and was pretty much sidelined by JJ.
    Im pretty sure he skipped the premiere.

    He wanted cartoons and stupidness.. He lucked out that he didn't have the tech to complete his vision in the late 70s/early 80s.. Or the franchise would have been doa.

    No word on this new one, he didn't show up at the event at all.

    First time he said he liked it then later started to take pokes at the movie based on originality. He was probably contracted to show up the first time. He also said he liked RO.

    Not really, you have new characters and not seeing Rey and Kylo is a big thing they are the main characters going into the next movie.. plus you get some updated look.

    Even if we have it half reboot it isn't the end of the world if it's good and the consensus is just that...

    For example plenty of movies are reboots / remakes and go down in history in some cases way better then the source material. Ex: The Thing, Ocean's Eleven, Cape Fear, Scarface, Pale Rider, The Mag Seven, A fistful of dollars, Dracula from '92 and I'm sure they are more this are just some of my favorites.

    While 7 didn't surpass 4 for me that doesn't mean it's a bad movie it's a blend of old and new.. high paced fun action adventure movie in that universe full of nostalgia. Plus I personally find Rey full of charisma and screen presence and Kylo too for the most part.

    Well I haven't seen Force Awakens and probably never will and I'm still caught up on the major things I need to know

    Snoke is the big bad
    Rey is good
    Kylo is a Solo and he may end up becoming good but maybe not
    Han is dead
    Luke is a hermit

    If there is anything else I'm missing let me know and I think none of that is real important to the story just yet

    I made 3 guesses half-jokingly to my friend who's a SW fan(I've admittedly never seen 1 film the whole way through) just based on trailers and posters.... and now he's mad at me for spoiling the movie. I guess my guesses were things likely to happen? I'm confused.

    If anyone is aware of the "big moments" that I guess would count as spoilers, can you let me know what they are so I can tell my friend if I really ruined it or not? I kinda feel bad and I don't feel like I should.

    Surface value similarities to empire?


    Why are there any similarities!

    Make something original and its own thing

    If you didn't even saw it why put it down on a forum ? I mean at least sit down those 2 hours maybe you get something out of it who knows you might even like it.

    If you reduce it to just facts like you are some wild west telegraph operated dot dot dot dash dash :D then yea you get the gist of it but you are missing nuances, Kylo is a conflicted individual you get to see his projected image and you get to see just how fragile and vulnerable he is in reality, then we have Rey you say she is good but who knows by the end of this new movie :p you kinda have to see it to judge the tones and feel for yourself and get an idea for the new characters cause most likely we will get a lot more of them in the future.
