I still believe Ren woke up her force powers inadvertently when he was trying to mind read her. She knew after that encounter.

Woke up her force powers? It's not a fairy tale, it's STAR WARS! Oh! I've just woke up my force powers because some guy wanted to do a mind trick on me. She didn't ever know what a mind trick was before! She Could be sensitive but she couldn't know. It's the kind of a shortcut that director's of the movie tried to use. They were succesful... sadly... because everyone wants to be a believer. It was a disaster. She knew the power that he was trying to pull on her. She didn't know nothing. 


When the Saber was calling her she felt it. She didn't want to believe it though and tried to run away. It's been a long time since the Emperor fell. There have been stories told you know. Probably embellished and people who weren't there during actually saying they were. You don't know whether she's heard stories about the Force mind controlling. I say when she was fighting him back during their interrogation she realized it was true and also what she was able to do. Not to Ren but a weak minded individual. She's naturally strong in the Force. You can see that right?


& what do you mean it's not a fairy tale it's Star Wars. It's a movie based on shit that's not possible. What are you talking about with that?

I expected no better honestly. Take off your nostalgia glasses. The only decent space opera to ever appear in video format is LOGH.

It has nothing to do with nostalgia.  Many consider Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back to be the two best Sci-fi movies of all time.  This movie couldn't compare with either of those two in any way except for special effects.  Even the lightsaber duel was was badly choreographed and clunky.  It looked like two kids playing with toy lightsabers.


Sorry but I think it has A LOT to do with nastalgia.  Star Wars has always made little sense and been silly  - but been stronger than the sum of its parts.  This movie was better than most Star Wars movies in every way, and I enjoyed it a lot!

Prediction for console Lifetime sales:

Wii:100-120 million, PS3:80-110 million, 360:70-100 million

[Prediction Made 11/5/2009]

3DS: 65m, PSV: 22m, Wii U: 18-22m, PS4: 80-120m, X1: 35-55m

I gauruntee the PS5 comes out after only 5-6 years after the launch of the PS4.

Ad-hominem attack. I'm getting used to them on the internet. It means that I won't waste more time. Take care, then ;)

My friend, I agree with you. We look at the things from a defferent perspecctive. I am sorry if you a hurt by my response. I am so annoyed by many visions here. I am just upset. That's all. I really wish you best. If we ever meet in the real meaningful life, then I will buy you a proper pint. I really will. Just to celebrate life. But now, in the regard of STAR WARS, I will be fighting until Zeus will strike all of the blindness and put everyone to eternal sleep. Because I cannot understand how blind we are.

Surely you're passionate about the subject, I won't try to change your mind. But I'm up to the pint ;)

Sounds like a formula movie designed to milk suckers out of their money.

...Oh, and Kylo Ren is by far the weakest main villain in the entire series.  At first I really thought that they were on to something with a sinister and powerful force wielder that was prone to temper tantrums.  Turns out that he isn't a bad ass at all.  In fact, he can be defeated in a lightsaber duel by someone that has zero training.  And I also wasn't too impressed with Supreme Leader Snoke or whatever his name was.

You obviously weren't paying a lot of attention. Notice that he is a) still very young b) dealing with being conflicted between his good side (parents) and going full-out darkside and c) he hasn't finished his training as was basically spelled out for us after he is defeated.

I had a blast watching the movie and it was a spectacular return to form for the series. Can't wait for the next film and the off-shoot film in between. The Force awakens is right up there with Empire Strikes Back in my book.

It was ok, though I agree with the OP. The scenes felt very rushed with no proper build-up, but I'm hoping for an extended version with some 40 extra minutes to flesh it all out, the movie needs it.

Also, Finn is such a terrible and annoying character, everything about him is so wrong and bad. The new Jar Jar.

Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

I started out liking the movie but hated it by the end. I was pretty disappointed with how the story unfolded and particularly how the movie ended. I remember Luke Skywalker speaking in one of the trailers so I thought that he would actually have something to say in the actual movie -- of course by the end of the movie I didn't think he was going to say a lot but was surprised that he didn't even utter a word... also related to his 'exile'... how exactly does he survive from from a day to day basis (i.e., food, shelter, social connections etc) -- is he meant to be meditating the whole time? Does he know what has transpired since his departure... I definitely think the story (including the characters) needed to be fleshed out more... 

I also thought the lightsaber sequence at the end was a huge disappointment... At least from the first scene of the movie, it appeared that Ren was quite powerful... however, it didn't make sense (and still doesn't) that he was so easily beaten by someone who has never used a lightsaber before. I understand he is injured but I'd rather they exclude the light saber sequence completely than show what looked like a couple of kids play fighting.... I really enjoy the light saber scenes in past movies and had high expectations for a great action sequence at the end (I can remember thinking to myself... maybe Luke will all of a sudden show up and we can see some proper action lol) but that didn't eventuate and so it left me feeling pretty disappointed. 

I did enjoy the first act of the film, and mostly liked the fan service to the previous movies, as well at the new Rey, Fin, Poe and the new droid so that's a positive... I also liked how the protagonist of the series only emerged in the final third of the film (although it seemed a little far fetched 'the force' came so easy to her...). It still wasn't enough to make up for everything else though lol

It was a good movie but Abrams was playing it very safe. Basically A New Hope with some new actors and mixed up relationships

All of a sudden l feel the prequels weren't that bad.

I really miss George Luca's. For all the flak the original trilogy gets. They were still good movies that FELT like Star Wars. The Force Awakens was a very good movie, but lacked the Star Wars magic. I do have faith that Episode VIII and IX will be redeeming of this mess.

I want to go and watch it again before I really make a strong opinion on it.
