I’m not going to waste energy talking to you about this if you’re not even going to watch it. It’s as if you read about a recipe and decided you hated it without tasting it.

EDIT: Who the shit is this seasoned Jedi master she’s supposed to have beaten?

EDITAGAIN: I should just stop engaging, but I can’t help myself.

Rey becomes a master swords(wo)man with next to no training, yes?

The movie actually makes it pretty clear that her skill with a lightsaber is almost completely due to the fact that she was already a skilled melee fighter with her staff.

She effortlessly lifts a shit-ton of rocks with about the same amount of training, yes?

Didn’t Empire teach us that the only thing keeping you from lifting shit is not believing that you can lift shit? Maybe Rey is just more credulous than Luke was.

She beats a seasoned Jedi master,

Kylo kills Snoke, not Rey.

a bunch of Snoke’s highly-trained bodyguards,

Never established as being Force-sensitive.

and apparently Kylo again, in duels, yes?

No, she doesn’t.

Her parents were nobodies, not Skywalkers or Kenobis or Palpatines or anyone with Force-sensitivity which might explain her innate proficiency, yes? She’s just absurdly powerful and skilled because … Forcedidit.

So the prequel-era Lucas model of super-powerful chosen-one bloodlines is more appealing to you than the Force working in mysterious ways? Wouldn’t’ve pegged you as one of those.
