Yes, it was complete shit. I mean I could've loved it for being different, but I disliked it for being poorly written, badly paced, and including some unnecessary characters that actively detracted from the experience. That's in addition to plot holes large enough to drive a truck through.
Yeah, I saw the 12:30AM Friday Night showing and the theater served alcohol, but I found it funny how a couple people in the audience were straight-up laughing while a few others shouted out "WTF" "WTF" during the Superman returns/Mary Poppins Leia scene.
No one clapped or applauded when the movie was over.
This is the very first of the Star Wars movies where it didn't "Feel" like Star Wars at all. After the first 10 minutes of the Casino thing, I'm thinking to myself 'What the fuck am I watching here?' Good thing we got Rogue One before this steaming pile of crap. Now that's how you do Star Wars with new characters.
With TLJ you take away the Space stuff and all the space blasting and you have some generic story that could be anything.
Many things about TFA had me excited for the new movie and for what might comes next. After watching TLJ what is there to care about when it comes to E9? I'm certainly not excited to see what becomes of Kylo and Rey.
I didn't buy a ticket and wait 2 years to see Marvel crap!
These posts are gold and sum things up pretty well.
