    There's so much to like in this film. There's also so much to dislike, however.

    Likes:
    - Holy crap the visuals. Great. The fight sequences are pretty fantastic. Some of the climactic scenes spoiler are great.
    - It felt unique. Johnson's extensive use of close-ups really gave it a unique tone.
    - Over all the story was solid-ish, and there were definitely parts where the opening night audience cheered.

    Dislikes:
    -It's a good 30 minutes too long. As one professional reviewer pointed out, somewhere in there is a fantastic 90 minute Star Wars Movie
    - The subplot spoiler was abysmally bad and insulting. Felt prequel SW bad. Holy crap I couldn't believe how bad it was.
    - By splitting up the characters, the dramatic tension was diluted. But when they get back together in the same place, man, does the film cook.
    - One important moment is never really resolved spoiler
    - The humour was way too over the top and silly. Meta-awareness has always been Han Solo's job, and it just seemed out of place coming from other people.
    -Trying to be cool and modern: Alongside the humour is the weird way language is used. A lot of modern vernacular and body language is used that just feels out of place in Star Wars.
    - The music: John Williams is a living legend, but overall this had nothing new to offer and felt watered down.
    - The tone: It didn't feel like Star Wars in the way I though The Force Awakens PERFECTLY captured the Star Wars tone. It was close, but it was it's own thing. Maybe that's fine. Wasn't for me though.
    -Useless romance that seems incredibly tacked on.

    Overall: I liked the movie, but there's much about it that bugged me. Some parts were FANTASTIC and others were just awful. Hammil was solid. There was very little in the way of character arcs for anyone though. It was all just kind of treading water. The film really had no pathos, ultimately. It just kind IS a Star Wars story. Felt more like Rogue One in the way it emulates Star Wars than just BEING a Star Wars movie. Also, like Rogue One, it felt more like a film about military operation than about a real adventure. Where was the adventure here? Larry Kasdan needs to write the rest of this series. His magic was sorely lacking here.

    Why don't I like this movie. I almost HATE it. But why, when my love for the universe is so strong. Is it because the charm is long gone or because I had too high expectations. These words are written after I saw it again, 10 months after I saw it the first time in cinema. Still I simply don't like it. I don't laugh, cry or cheer at any time, I just don't feel it. I like the evolution of the universe, to experience new planets, places, and new beings. Porgs are sweet, but they have any
    significance for the plot, as Ewoks did. Porgs is only created to sell teddy bears. Yeah, I know that the Star Wars itself created this phenomenon, but it's tasteless here.

    I am worried about this amazing universe future. I enjoyed The Force Awakens and Rogue One, I chose to avoid The Solo story, as I would like to keep the mystery surrounding Han

    Need to see it again as I’m unsure what to think of this one yet. Went in with extremely high expectations so illlet the dust settle a bit before passing judgement. I’m struggling to understand Kylo Rens arc and motivation after watching this. 12 months ago
