Honestly, I'm not that big of a Star Wars person. I'll still go see this, at some point.

LEt's just say I was refreshing the internets for a few hours last night, waiting for it, haha...

Aaaaand I saw the last trailer a bunch of times...

Aaaaand I don't know if I can see the midnight release yet, but I'm definitely doing opening day.

Aaaaand I already have possibly two Star Wars marathons scheduled for the next two months.

Yeah, in a lot of ways I'm not as big of a nerd as I used to be, but my love for Star Wars has no limits, haha.

Where's Katana...

Honestly, I regretted watching it instantly, but I couldn't stop the video. It shows A LOT. Too much. But well I'm still pumped. OMG

I saw Episode 3 in theaters once by myself. Sums up how crazy I am about these haha. Can't wait!

Haha, it showed a lot of footage, but I still feel like we have no idea what this movie is about! I think it's actually really good marketing. It gives us a taste of more Star Wars, but that's it.

I'm still not sure what to think of Kylo Ren (spelling?)... but on the other hand, I think it's kind of cool we've got another cool iconic looking villain. I'm guessing he/her is maybe the new leader of the Sith/Empire, with the cool silver Stormtrooper person being the second in command or something.

It's interesting that both the trailer and poster don't show Luke. Either it'll be a big surprise when we inevitably see him, or this movie will just end up focusing more on Han Solo, and maybe the sequels on Luke.

Do you think Han is going to die? I guess there's speculation all the way back to him dying in Return of the Jedi, apparently. I wonder if they'd have the balls or good reason/plot to pull that off. I don't want it to happen, but I'd accept it if it's good, and otherwise I don't want the new stuff focusing too much on the oldies anyways.

Pretty interesting and cool that there seems to be a high emphasis on female characters. I'm cool with that shift. Assuming this new girl has some kind of link to the original characters. Luke's daughter?

I have to admit that I'm pretty hyped; this is pretty much all I'm looking forward to from here on out, for the rest of the year.

Ben said he might wait a month or so before seeing it. Do you think that counts as grounds for a divorce?

Seriously though, even though I will always be more of a trekkie, I am going to see this asap.

Haha...

Maybe not opening night or weekend for me, but yeah. I won't be able to resist the wait for too long. A month is very extreme though.

I liked the Japanese one way better than the American one. I am getting so pumped for this now though.

You guys hear about the terminally-ill fan who died today after getting to watch "Force Awakens" last week? It's nice that Lucas' people fulfilled this guy's dying wish.

FINALLY saw it. I already knew about most of the spoilers, but I still actually really dug it.

**raises hand** Right here! I dropped the ball on this discussion.

So, when we all agree it is acceptable to speak without worrying about spoilers, I would definitely give a more heartfelt opinion, but I'm very middle of the road with it.

I loved it but I'm in such a limbo that I'm more excited about the next one than I was about this one. I can but also can't entirely put my finger on it, but there were lots of things that I wasn't crazy about but then again, depending on what and where they go with those things, I could very well absolutely LOVE this one more. I hope that makes sense. Most of those sentiments are in regard to Kylo Ren. There was so much I just didn't like, but its also all totally redeemable, so I'm in eager anticipation of seeing what happens.

Side note: I found a lovely name for my daughter after seeing this one, so I'll never say it was all bad.

Well, let's be honest. A LOT of it could arguably to called rehashes of things we've seen before. And let's face it, J.J. Abrams is beyond guilty of this in many other projects (eyes have still not finished rolling over "Star Trek Into Darkness.")

I wasn't all that intrigued by Kylo Ren, but I'm still really interested to see how his relationship/rivalry with Rey develops. I loved her. And I also ended up really liking Finn.

I wasn't too mad about the rehashing to be honest. I found it mostly necessary. I'm not too impressed with Snoke mostly. I definitely agree on this being a somewhat overdone thing on Abrams' part, but this time for me it wasn't even because of how many years between the original trilogy and this one. It was the time PLUS the fact that another trilogy was shown in between.

How these characters relate, however, is what I'm looking forward to seeing the most. I didn't feel Adam Driver's portrayal of an unstable character did anything for me. Yet there's a few things they can do with that in the future. I loved loved LOVED Daisy Ridley. I enjoyed Poe and Finn's screen time together the most though. I know there's so many memes surrounding these two but I genuinely enjoyed them on screen.

I wasn't impressed with the "Death Planet" but I AM impressed with the First Order. There's something real and relevant to them outside of the sphere of the film to make them just the right kind of eerie.
