You knew this Young girl right? You or your better half? :?


Yes, of course, she's the daughter of a close friend.

Not that I'm disagreeing with you, Matt, but it was interesting how Nat and I took a nine year old girl, who'd never seen a SW film before, to see The Force Awakens and she loved it but when she then watched A New Hope the next week, albeit on TV at home, she found it really dull. Stupid kids.


No, I get that. My nine-year-old's favorite Star Wars movie is episode 2. Go figure.

My son adores IV. He's not seen VII or VIII yet as he's too young, but I'm hopeful that he sees the OT as the best ones.

I went with my girls (14 & 12) and they really liked it, more than i did to tell the truth. The movie's style really appealed to them.

My wife loved it - and she has no time for SF or fantasy as a rule. She was raving about it when we came out. Lots of strong female characters may perhaps have helped. The kids loved it too of course.

I liked it a lot - good fun and the time didn't drag at all. But as an adult I find SW films pretty much go in one ear and out the other without leaving much of a trace... Apart from Phantom Menace which was all negative.

Another by-the-numbers Star Wars movie. My girlfriend fell asleep twice during it, lol.

I saw it this afternoon. As a film, I think it probably hangs together better than the increasingly casual/uninvolving Marvel franchises, but there doesn't seem to be much point to Star Wars anymore. Did this drive the plot along any more? Is there an over-arching plot? Why should I care? A bit too much silly green-screen CGI, which The Force Awakens handled much better. It didn't drag for all of it's 2 1/2 hours, but it's not something I'd choose to watch again.
