You guys have too high expectations like many SW fans tbh.

I thought it was good. Not as good as rogue one but about equal with revenge of the sith (and ahead of force awakens, phantom menace and attack of the clones), a decent movie. Adam Driver as Kylo was okay in TFA but was really great in this, and most of the plot and cast were very good. It had a nice balance between callbacks to the original series (but not too far like TFA) and being original (but not too far like the prequels).

Few problems I did have - not enough lightsaber battles; too mayn cheesy jokes/moments made to get a cheap laugh; Leia having magical force powers that shouldn’t be possible; Rose being boring and a bad character; no Snoke backstory at all; Finn being fine at the start after having his back and spine flowered up by Kylo; and them killing off the cute pilot girl early on ;-;

Overall I’d say it’s a solid 8/10 and probably one of the top 5 movies I’ve seen of 2017 (Logan Lucky and a Ghost Story top two, TLJ is probably equal with It and the Shape of Water). And for those who are keeping track at home:
5 > 4 > 6 > RO > 3 = 8 > 7 > 1 >2

Few wishes for episode 9:
Force ghosts with appearances from Hayden Christensen, Ewan McGregor, and Mark Hamill.
Kill off a main protagonist (Rey, Finn or Poe)
Handle the Leia/Carrie Fisher death well
Knights of Ren stuff

The Mrs wants to see that. I just saw the trailer for it. Will give it a crack. Woody Harrelson gives it a big tick.
