WARNING! This thread contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you have not yet seen the movie, we strongly encourage you to turn around and return once you have. It seems like a good idea to branch off a new thread from the old one to prevent spoilers (on that subject what is wrong with people these days? The effort some people went to online to spoil the film for those who hadn't yet seen it was horrendous). So getting into it, things I really liked: 1) Acting, the new characters were relatable, lovable and had great chemistry 2) The aesthetic was great. Most scenes looked and sounded awesome. 3) Storms troopers actually frighten me a bit now! 4) Not everything was explained, we don't need to know exactly what the republic is doing or who is who 5) The world felt like a believable continuation of the originals. This is one of the big ones for me, the end of Return of the Jedi felt very fairy tale. They kill the main bad guy and the whole galaxy is suddenly free? No one stepped up to take his place and keep the empire going? Having the empire still around in a more broken form with a fledgling republic was great. How about you?
