Ewan McGregor expressed his interest to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in this film. Rian Johnson wanted to include him, but could not find a place in the story to naturally insert the character. See more »
When Finn is continuing his attack on the Cannon after Poe has called for everyone to break off, Rose is yelling at him to stop and keeps looking to her right at him meaning she should have been on his LEFT side. However when she knocks him out of the cannon's path, she comes flying in from the RIGHT side of Finn meaning she should have been looking LEFT at him as he was first attacking the cannon. See more »
You don't have to do this. I feel the conflict in you. It's tearing you apart. Ben, when we touched hands, I saw you future. Just the shape of it but solid and clear. You will not bow before Snoke. You'll turn. I'll help you.
I saw something too. I know that when the time comes, you'll be the one to turn. You'll stand with me, Rey. I saw who your parents are.

I can't really get into what's bad with this movie without dropping a ton of spoilers, but let me put it this way: a friend of mine went to see this before I did, and when I asked him how it was he hesitated, then said "it's just a superhero series now". He was more right than I ever could have known.
The plot is stupid and is full of moments where my friends and I looked at each other and said "wait, what?". There are sequences in this movie that simply do not need to exist and provide literally nothing to the story. The technology, previously something I always thought was neat about Star Wars, is genuinely dumb and makes zero sense (why do big laser bolts in space arc like artillery?). I am ashamed to have paid money for this and as a long-time Star Wars fan it hurts to see just how dead the franchise I love really is.
All that said, the special effects look and sound great, and it was fun to see Mark Hamill acting again. Other than that this movie is a disgrace not just to the franchise but to anyone with a brain. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
