So, I FINALLY got to watch this. No, I was not counting down to the exact day I could finally see this. . .or wait. . .was I? Yes. Yes. I must admit, I was. So, what did I think? Did I like it? Nope. Not the slightest. I didn’t like it at all.
I LOVED IT!!! This is definitely my favorite Star Wars, now.
Rating: 5/5 stars
I can’t believe I had to wait THIS LONG to watch it. It was amazing.
What did I like? EVERYTHING. I’m a hardcore Reylo shipper, now. No hating. THEY ARE SO CUTE TOGETHER! AHHHHH! I sense chemistry and sparks. Come on, you had to, also, right? But Rey and Finn are super cute, too. . .can’t have it both ways, though. . .Reylo all the way.
Luke’s cynicism was annoying and I wanted to hit him. He did come through and I cried at the end.
Kylo Ren is still having his temper tantrums but he’s nicer with Rey.
Rey is still her tough, amazing self.
Finn and Rose. . .ah, Rose. . .she was so brave, as was Finn. I’m sad about that.
Poe was reckless as ever but in a charming way.
Yoda: I loved seeing Yoda again. He was so funny and wise, as always. “Read them, have you? Page-turners they were not.”
Leia. . .it hurt to see Carrie Fisher on the screen and know that we’ll not see her there, really again. This was a beautiful send off the the lovely woman, we all know and love as, Leia Organa. May the Force be with you, Ms. Fisher. R.I.P.
What did I dislike? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. This was well written, directed, acted, and had great special effects. I loved it, so much.
I can’t wait to find out what happens, next!
