Oh I remember Kyle Katarn from the Jedi knight games. I presume he's a non canon character nowadays?
At first I disagreed with you cowman, now I think about it though that would have been a pretty surprising twist to the rehash.

Everyone see it in IMAX. True 70mm or Laser IMAX. It is incredible. Even 3D - it is never used to pop things out of the screen, it is simply snow and sparks that purely make the film more immersive.
I know it is expensive, and you make drive or sit on a train for a while, if you're a Star Wars fan, it's worth it.
Type in your location here: http://www.imax.com/theatres
If you find somewhere close to you, then google "Is (my grandmas television screen) real IMAX
If people are saying it is 70mm / IMAX Laser, than go for it, if not, Digital IMAX is not IMAX, it is LieMAX. Not worth it.

Also, if for some reason you happen to be coming to Australia soon... we do have 2 of the best cinema screens in the world, plus an incredible sound system at Melbourne. So. Yeah. If Star Wars is the one true love of your life, then fly down here, and buy some premium seats at Melbourne IMAX

@Penty, yup that's EU now but also from sw fans I heard that the'll be using a fair amount from the EU but modifying it or combining characters in all 3 movies.


@Sloth My parents are actually in Australia now, Melbourne specifically, I'll tell them.

Are they big Star Wars fans who care a reasonable amount if they're watching it on a TV or a cinema screen? If not, I warn you they may come out complaining that they could've just gone to a normal village cinemas for 1/4 the price. It is great though. 12 channel sound (almost all cinemas use 5 channel, and I think most IMAX use 7), and a dual 4k LASER projector on a screen that is.. brace yourselves.. 32 x 23 metres - that is 105 x 75 feet for anyone stuck in the past, or from the USA. (sorry)

I realize I sound like a shill.

Nope. They probably won't but I did tell them it was an option.

Seen the movie again and it sucks. Once the action wears off it's got nothing to support it bar the characters. That's not enough for a story, even an intro to a story. For me that's not enough for a star wars saga. IV, VI and even to a lesser extent, V all work as stand alone movies, this one doesn't.

Saw it again, I'm really trying to like it but I still hate that movie. Kylo Ren is just the worst, the absolute worst, he ruins the whole film for me. I'd like to see something else Adam Driver is in to make sure I don't just hate Adam but I'm 99% sure I just hate the character and it's not Adams fault.

You keep watching it. I don't think hate means what you think it means. :)

My gripe is still with not blowing up resistance base.
