    Also spoiler tags in a spoiler thread are dumb but I'm not trying to get banned.
    I don't mind that her parents were nobody at all. I completely agree with you on the aspect of her being a new character instead of some random jedi bloodline. My beef is the fact that so much of the movie was the focus of learning who her parents were. They could've established that fact while she was having her bad acid trip and moved it right the fuck along. Not pretend like it was going to be this huge plot reveal until the very end.

    And why are people saying "Kylo lied to her about her parents?" Rey was the first one to respond with who they were after the throne room fight.

    It was an OK movie. It felt more like a few good scenes stitched together loosely.
    Spoiler: show
    The Resistance having a handful of ships was off. I get that the First Order was the dominant force, but... Come on.
    Leia's Force pull, after being in the vacuum of space for several minutes was beyond silly.
    The scene where Luke milked the beast, then drank it, made me think to Meet the Parents, where Ben Stiller says "yea. You can milk anything with nipples." I might Photoshop a pic of this scene, with Lukes face on Stillers body, with Snoke asking "I have nipples, Luke. Can you milk me?"
    I liked old Yodas interaction with Luke. Mirrored his snarkiness from Dagobah.
    I would have liked it if when Kylo was turning the Lightsaber, that they wouldn't have shown it actually turning, but just Kylos hand rotating, then the blue glow and Snokes face.
    The Red Guard was badass. Jumping to the aid of Snoke the second there was danger.
    I'm wondering what happened to all of the other Jedi that went with Kylo. I assume they became the Knights of Ren, but where are they?
    It looks like Disney squashed the idea of making Poe and Finn a thing. Finn and Rose may be a thing (which was a better beginning love story than Anakon/Padma), and Poe and Rey seemed like something was minutely there, even though Poe seems to be REALLY attached to BB-8, like a little TOO attached.
    Part of me thinks Rey knows who her parents are, an was able to make up a false memory, to throw off Snoke and Kylo.

    I don’t care at all that her parents aren’t (for now) someone important (they will be in 9). There are a laundry list of other reasons that made this movie awful.

    Another problem, Audience laughed way too much.

    Some jokes are OK, but still

    The scene where Luke throws the lightsaber away, the audience LAUGHED way too much. It wasn't even funny.


    The part where chewbaka tried to eat his chicken with the kind of hamsters, reminded me too much of



    And everyone went AWWWWWWW

    While Rey being an orphan was definitely a factor in the movie I didn't feel like her parents identities were a focus at all until Kylo's line in the elevator.

    As far as the humor, someone hit it spot on when they said this was a marvel movie with a Star Wars skin slapped on it.

    I was expecting Mickey Mouse to appear at one point

    Mickey Mouse is already a jedi so it probably would have been the best part of the movie.

    Honestly, can anyone please explain to me, why Luke is always getting considered as the best Jedi? He fucking did nothing in Episode 4-5-6

    I mean, in 5 he went reckless and got his hand cut
    In 6 he ignore Yoda Training and honestly HAD 0 chances against Vader. The reason they won is that Vader change his idea when he saw his son getting rekted by the emperor.

    I love Hammil, but I keep thinking that Luke is Overrated

    That's because of the expanded universe. He is basically Goku.

    Luke's probably the weakest Jedi "Master" shown in the canon universe. Literally every master in....the prequels...has better feats than him.

    Every Star Wars movie has been like this.

    People standing up and cheering at the opening logos, and generally being loud as fuck.

    Happened with the prequel trilogy, and has been holding true for the new ones.

    No one made a sound during the whole movie in my theater I guess, but I guess I can attribute that to going to a very out of the way theater in the furthest suburb from the city. Place wasn't even half full. Glorious leather recliners all to ourselves.

    The focus wasn't really who her parents were, the focus how was she wanted them to turn out to be some kind of answer to what her "place in all this" was.
