    Just out, thought it was slow to get going but the ends being tied together was pretty superb.

    My kids are in their thirties so I doubt I have an excuse to go and see it.

    Blessing.

    Wasnt impressed, various issues.

    They had the perfect opportunity to kill Leia but opted to use the force randomly to keep her alive. Would have added to the badness of her laddie too.

    Which brings me into her laddie. Totally rubbish baddie, couldn’t lace Vader’s boots. More a petulant spoilt brat.

    Why kill Snoke? He had real potential.

    Luke not malkying anyone was a real disappointment, as was making yoda into some comic maniac.

    Those wee animals were rubbish too. Too many attempts at comedy. Too many people. Too long.

    Some decent battle scenes

    Why would they want to kill Leia? It worked well with the boy choosing not to kill her as it allowed the audience to think he would be swayed to the light side of the force. This lead to the great moment when he turns on Snoke and we all think yes he has turned.

    Leia floating in space didn't work.

    Didn't really see much potential in Snoke. His badness is too preset so there's no room for manipulation of peacemakers the way Palpatine did. There is a theory that Snoke isn't dead as his arm and ring stayed on the armrest after his body flopped to the floor. I don't buy that.

    The Luke twist worked for me. It feeds into the Rose story arc that the resistance is much more than just the Jedi masters and good/evil and instead more about emancipation and egalitarianism.

    The wee animals are for the kids and selling toys. That's fair enough as it's a kids film at the end of the day. They were much less bugging than the Ewoks or Mr Binks.

    A lot of the comedy was a bit corny but again it's a kids film. The phone call to Hux was funny. A big thing in this film was about making the humans more human - both the goodies and the baddies. I think the comedy stuff was to help that.

    Thought the length was fine. It allowed room for the sub plots that ultimately were important in the overall narrative.

    I'd say 8 out of 10.
