I was in a hurry last night as if there was an emergency to creep up, alas, it went to no effect. Yes I'm talking about the time slot of this movie--both 8:45 and 9 pm slots were already sold. I almost wept. Nevertheless, I will try my luck tonight. ;)

Great Movie! Hope you guys will enjoy it as much as I did. Don't expect canon stuff. Just enjoy it as a sequel to the previous ones.

just watched it earlier in one of those theaters with recliners. 

too bad i did not watch on the first day, or in the midnight screenings. 

good stuff. 

i will probably watch it next on Dolby Atmos, and hopefully in Imax after that. 

 

but please let us refrain from any spoilers for those who haven't seen the movie yet.

I don't know, but I like The Force Awakens better than this.

I don't know why it got negative reviews from some Star Wars fanatics. It was a good movie.

However, I would still rank Rouge One above it and The Force Awakens. :)

Because some fanatics were expecting to see canon stuff thus resulting to the frustration when the movie took another route. Similar to Harry Potter.

I’m a little confused. What ‘canon’ stuff? As far as I know only those that were officially confirmed by Lucasfilms through their various stories are considered canon.

Maybe they were just disappointed because they did not predict the actual outcome lang.

Star Wars canon was first defined in the first issue of the Lucasfilm magazine, Star Wars Insider:

"'Gospel,' or canon as we refer to it, includes the screenplays, the films, the radio dramas and the novelizations. These works spin out of George Lucas' original stories, the rest are written by other writers. However, between us, we've read everything, and much of it is taken into account in the overall continuity. The entire catalog of published works comprises a vast historywith many off-shoots, variations and tangentslike any other well-developed mythology." From wookiepedia.

Right. But in this case, the canon are the films, film novelization and other tie-ins that they say are canon. Expanded universe isnt canon anymore so im quite confused what xanon they were referring to.

Maybe when GL said that the saga films should be only focused on the Skywalkers, they took that too seriously?

I loved the EU stories, but in a way, it became too much of a burden as they keep focusing on the legacy characters way past their true story arcs.

So yeah, I agree with the direction this new film is going for.

Saw it last sunday with the fam.

As expected, it is best to see this on IMAX. I liked it but in my opinion I'd rank it after The Force Awakens and Rougue One too. I still think VADM Holdo is still alive and may appear on Episode IX.

   All in all  legacy is nice  for what  some of us grew up on  of Star wars..................

 

    but as anything else things must move on if the  story line is to keep going then awesome

Yes, satisfied with it. There are butt hurt fans out there because of what happened to Luke (won't spoil it for those who haven't watched it yet), but all things must move on, and I like that this has kept things realistic that way (and hopefully no Marvel Comics stuff where we see that character back again with some BS explanation). One thing that still bugs me though is that thing about Leia...

I made a conscious effort not to read anything about Episode 8. Didn't even watch the last trailer.  Wanted to come into the theater with only the story line of episode 7 in my head.  Good choice!  Enjoyed the movie as I had no expectations. Does that sound lame? hahaha

Did the exact same thing. I tried to avoid watching the trailers (except the 1st one). I wanted to be thoroughly surprised by the plot twists, eh.
