I was really disapointed ... as a major star wars fan i can say that watching that was like watching the previous movies joined all together  ... nothing new ... nothing exceptional ...

My kids turn 7 tomorrow, I was 7 when the first Star Wars hit the theater and my step dad took me.  I remember I loved the shit out of it.  Looking back at that original movie, even with the changes added a couple years back, it was really not put together well.  I have no specific issues with the original, just saying that as an adult i see many things in low quality that i missed as a kid.  I still love the first three, do not get me wrong

So, i took the kids to see Awakens almost as a legacy for what i did when i was a kid.  it is really hard the past few years to get deeply into any movie.  it seems my attention is drawn away by the myriad of things i have to get done.  i was not so much disappointed in the latest as disappointed in the bad guy

picture me as a kid of 7, 10 and i think 13, waiting more than five years to see Darth Vader without the mask.  there was no internet, no sneak previews or spoilers, you could not even look up the actor in the way you can today.  it was the anticipation when i was young and the "Secrets" behind the masks, Darth Vader, Jason, Michael Myers, i went to movie after movie waiting for the mask to slip off

less than halfway into Awakens the girl says he should take his mask off and boom, casual as anything there goes the mask.  i thought it was almost funny the way it was so casual and meaningless.  i just wish my kids could have that same five year wait for something to happen.  and Kylo just was not the ominous creature that Darth Vader was, he was more like a confused three year old with his tantrums.  I suppose people are people and he has his personality, based on a fractured past, but it is a story and you can make him however you want.  hard to see a person with that off-handle personality rising through the ranks of any serious government/tyranny

BUT, best thing ever was the beginning, kylo was holding the mounted cannon laser back the entire time he was on the surface and as he leaves it continues forward, scaring the shit out of some storm troopers, classic moment
