Copenhagen is the Guiness Stout of chewing tobacco. People who don't know chew think Cope is the strongest, most dangerous dip, but in the same way that Guiness has this reputation and yet is only like 4% abv, Copenhagen does not provide the same level of knock-yer-socks-off buzz that Kodiak does.

I prefer.

finally saw it tonight.  splurged for 3D and wish i hadn't.  the bridge of my nose is fairly wide so standard-issue glasses don't fit me very well. the 3D was cool but the edges looked a little outta focus and i found that highly distracting. 

i might up relaxer's rating to 7/10, maybe 7.5.  cool movie bro, but my mind is intact.  the meetup between Han and Leia was paaaaaaainful.

Also, if the entire galaxy is frantically trying to get to Luke first, why does the Rebellion send some random chick who just happened to wander in instead, of, oh I don't know, Luke's sister who is now a military general?

you are weak...
 
He was out hiking Old Rag on some planet when Rey showed up and harshed his mellow.

this line made me lol. 

personally i was thinking of a certain outcrop of St. Thomas in the Caribbean, but same diff.

I mean, R2 did have the remaining part of the map and maybe there was enough chatter of "well, we're screwed, this map is incomplete!" and it was like in Inception where he heard it really slowly and it jarred him out of sleep mode hahaha!

That's exactly it, from http://www.ew.com/article/2015/12/20/jj-abrams-answers-burning-question-about-r2-d2-star-wars-force-awakens: "BB-8?s earlier question rattles around inside R2?s dome for a while. Those old astromechs must just take a while to boot up again."


See!

EDIT: Also seen a lot of complaints about Kylo Ren not using 'The Dark Side' to defeat Fin and Rey but he beats the shit out of Fin and then gets out "forced" by Rey. Didn't they say multiple times that he never finished training? Hell he even goes to what's-his-name and ASKS to finish his training. People, yo.

I have not read a single post in this thread.  I still have not seen it.  I want to see it, just so, I can post in this thread.

I am finally seeing the movie today, and will read this thread and post my thoughts, later tonight.  It was hard to wait for so long (waited for my fiancee's family so that we could go as a group)...

Sitting, in a theatre right now, waiting for the movie to start.  So stoked, that I had nothing spoiled, up until this point.

I enjoyed it. I almost felt like a kid again while watching it.

Hated it.

Too much rehash stories that made the original 3 movies great.

Not enough originality.

Acting was horrible, the worst being han solo.

When did star wars become a comedy?

The villian was weak and the supreme bad guy was a joke.

Jj, ruined the essence of star wars.

But Luke wasn't at all back. He was out hiking Old Rag on some planet when Rey showed up and harshed his mellow. Also, it would've been pretty funny if Rey had hiked all that way up the mountain and it turns out that's the day Luke felt like being lazy and just going to a movie instead.

That last scene was shot in Ireland on the Skellig Rocks - pretty cool place

I was a bit ticked at the story re-hashing, but I thought he did a great job establishing the new characters going forward. I think [hope] he was doing the re-hashing just to ease people into the latest leg of the story.

If they reveal in the VIII that there's a 2nd planet killing planet and Luke is Rey's father, well then...
