Just a bit behind TFA. I believe it says about another 60 million overseas since it opened the 13th as well.

It was terrible. I really don't understand how people like it (and I'm a HUGE fan of the entire series). How they handle Luke and Snoke is atrocious. Literally every female in the movie is perfect (and a good guy), and all the males have huge issues or are evil. The humor is over the top and the whole thing comes across as campy. I felt like I was watching a parody, to be honest.

I really don't think I've ever been this disappointed in a movie. I'm glad others like it, I guess - I'm not trying to hate on it to be edgy, or to rain on people's parades. I just know I've been waiting since I walked out of Episode 7 for the next installment, and after this one I couldn't care less when the next installment hits.

Exactly. I was feeling the same as well. Stupid jokes, illogical plot that doesn't make any sense.

If you ever saw a movie called "Jay and Silent Bob" where Mark Hamill plays some bastardized version of Luke, its exactly what my mind went to. 

Also, how did reviewers find this so good? I really don't understand...The Kylo Ren arc is pretty decent, I guess, but other than that - huge plot holes, inconsistent character development, below-average acting, forced humor... Ugh. It was so bad.

I'd really love it if someone on here who thought it was great could explain it to me. I WANT to love everything Star Wars, or at least respect it. This just felt like a purposeful attempt to ruin everything everyone ever loved about the OT.

I really enjoyed it. It definitely takes risks that Force Awakens didn't. Some of them pay off, some of them don't - but overall it's a better film for having explored new territory.

I still got a copy of the script if anyone really wants it.

Wouldn't mind reading that. Feel free to PM me.

You found one! Good job!

Too bad she's in the movie for all of about 2 minutes, with really no reason whatsoever based on the outcome, and you wouldn't even know she was a woman if not for the actress that plays her. But, technically, yes, you got me.

eh gonna see it some time. After Episode VII though, I don't expect much.
But good to read that it's not as much of a rehash.
