    It was interesting to see the beats they kept with empire strikes back and how they sort of subverted ideas of it. The Rey reveal being the major one

    Yeah I did enjoy the subversion of all those expected tropes. Thought the set pieces were much more impressive than TFA's too, albeit maybe too many of them.

    Your mate is either silly or this word doesn't mean what I think it means.

    The hyperspace crash was a great bit of imagery. Sort of transcended the film a bit

    It is a terrible movie, sorry. And I really love star wars. This one is worse than the prequels.

    Or what? Yoda will come to my house and do his brownshirt impression when he burns all my books?

    This video reminds me of that experience.

    It’s once again a deliberate mirror image and diversion from the original trilogy. In the first, there was a big ominous emperor, and a scary underling. Here it moved the opposite way, instead of Vader telling Luke about their secret intimate relationship, you have Kylo telling Rey her parents were nobodies. Instead of an ominous emperor sitting behind Vader and being the big thing to overcome, Kylo is able to overcome him. Instead of Vader becoming more redeemable as the films go along, Kylo becomes less.

    There’s also a big theme of nobodies, (the bomber at the start, the random purple haired admiral, the kids, Rey, Rose in general) being the real heroes, which is sort of the opposite of the original trilogy where the Skywalkers were front and centre. I think Snoke sort of parallels that as well, it’s all to subvert expectations.

    I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it though. It’s certainly keeping me guessing which is surprising. Will Kylo be redeemed in the third film? At this stage I’d guess probably not.
