I can't believe you hadn't seen this yet!  Glad you did.  And Steelbook on this side, too!  Sucha  nice presentation, it's worth... 50 portions!

And by the way, for those of us who like our physical releases, the build-up to this has been a nightmare.  First, two weeks ago the blu-ray rip dropped on all the pirate sites, so we started to get barraged with new GIFs and edited review videos and so on using all that footage.  Then the digital version came out and we had to wait ANOTHER week... LOADED with ads for the movie... for the physical release.  Gah!

I love Finn and Rey, they're just so adorable together.  That bit in the Falcon where they're going on and on about how cool the other one was, how did you do that? etc, that's so great.  This movie just feels more human and relatable than I remember the original trilogy being, there aren't as much airs about it like before.  And Poe.. really glad he didn't die like they had originally planned.  I want him and Finn to go on some derring do adventure in Episode 8, get their bro-mance on while Rey tries to get Luke to teach her the ways of the force (I will say, Luke showing up at the very end is EXACTLY what I predicted would happen).

Isn't it weird that BB-8's voice was provided by Bill Hader and Ben "Jean Ralphio" Swartz?  Meaning there's three actors from Star Trek in this movie, Simon Pegg, Bill Hader and Greg Grunberg.  On top of the connective tissue that Poe and Kylo were both in "Inside Llewyn Davis" and Hux and Poe were both in Ex Machina.

Oh, little thing that bugged me: we only saw ONE shot of Han Solo's ship... it's never named (I've been referring to it as the "Sword Swallower"), I just wanted to see more of it.


Now, aesthetically, how did the movie mesh into the old flicks?  I know they used a lot of the same designs and concept art from the original series, but side-by-side... did it stick out too much?

Man, I would have liked to see your reaction to the movie as it happened.
