so now that the release date has finally arrived depending on your location, is it ok to freely discuss the movie in this thread?

I saw a midnight screening last night and it honestly felt like the film I’d waited 32 years to see, it was everything I loved about the original STAR WARS, and it was clear that JJ and co had gone to great lengths to recreate the feel of the original trilogy .

There isn’t much that can be said without getting into dangerous spoiler territory, but If I had to pick the film’s weakest point I would have to say it was the design and execution of Supreme Leader Snoke, I guess we’re going to have to wait for 8 & 9 to delve into his background and learn more about him, but visually he came across as a Palpatine/Voldemort/Gollum hybrid that looked more at home in one of Peter Jackson’s LOTR films, not sure if that was Serkis’s influence but I just found the reveal of a character that they hid for so long in the lead-up to be ultimately a bit of a let down. The concept art looks far more interesting than what ended up on screen.

but overall this is the first film in years that I think I will go back to at least another 3 times to see it in the cinema.
