Well, i must be old, because the one thing i wanted more of was Han and Leia. Shit, i could have watched a whole movie of them talking about their relationship.
What i dislike about this movie is that i am surrounded by people who are deeply invested in their childhood memories of the original trilogy and have intense feelings about it. This makes appreciating the movie extremely complicated because i have to separate my own feelings about the original movies from my feelings about this mass of fannish children and their expectations. I can't review it as a movie that stands on its own merits because it's tied in a bow topped by a cultural Gordian knot and, quite frankly, i blame you all for this. As that great American William Shatner once said, "Get a life, will you people?"
On the other hand, the movie was crafted as a continuation of a previously set story, and it is impossible to assess it without taking that into consideration.
In sum, fuck you, i'm doing it my way.( omg spoilers )
el_muchacho's theory is that, once they've gotten the fan service out of the way, they will now focus on making awesome new stuff. Given Abrams's Star Trek movies, i am not holding my breath. Was it better than the prequels? Sure. If that's your bar, maybe you need to take a long look in the mirror.
