    Just like how I had a hard time believing Snoke couldn't tell Kylo was going to kill him instead of Rey. Now that I know that it was Palpatine that made him, it makes sense. Moron.

    Truth. And then there are the "half-truths." The future does become true, but not in the way you think....

    Like, in the first trilogy, Luke's father is dead......in a way.

But Luke had no way to protect himself, whereas Rey had two light sabers to do it.

    (which raises an interesting force question, why didn't Palpatine feel Aniken coming up from behind and throwing him over the side?)

    Still- if someone shoots you, and you have something that can reflect the shot back to the shooter, thus killing that person- who did it? That's why I don't see Rey killing Palpatine as much as he killed himself.
    I agree she didnít kill him, I was just throwing a possible twist out there that would have really ended the storyline because the Skywalker sand Palpatines would have ended.

    During the scene I figured Ben would come in to save the day and kill Palpatine and sacrifice himself in the process

    He kinda did.

    But Palpatine was killed by Rey. It was his own doing, but she was the one deflecting towards him, so she is responsible. That being said, it was for a noble cause, so no evil/Dark Side involved.

    Cool video on the Rey Palpatine theory long before the movie came out.

    In talks with Anthony Hopkins? Holy **** that would be great!

    Also, as someone else called it earlier, Disney is moving Star Wars in a Marvel direction to have multiple tv shows and stand alone movies that will eventually connect to a trilogy at some point.

    Perhaps I missed it here, but reading some reporters' accounts, Finn was not going to tell Rey that he loved her. Instead, his reveal was to say that he's Force sensitive. This is per a Q&A with J.J. Abrams. Abrams then chose to not have Finn disclose that prior to the end of the movie just to mess with people.

    I've read that same thing in three spots, so I guess it's true. Such is life.

This isn't just a Disney thing. There's a whole different beginning to the first film that was left on the cutting room floor but is included in the novelization. Wampas play a much bigger role in ESB than we see on film. Don't get me started on Yoda's skin color.
    I thought that was more along the line of Maz giving Chewie a keepsake of Han's, not awarding him some medal he didn't receive when he earned it.

    I've read that speculated as well. I can go along with that...just one more thing to wonder though...why does Maz have Han's medal?

    He wanted to tell her he had saved 15% on his car insurance.

    Couldn't it be Luke's? I really don't know. I think it is probably Han's. Did Leia have it again? Did Han trade it to Maz at some point? Who knows.

    No it is pretty obvious that is what he was gonna tell her...the whole not telling her thing was stupid as hell.

    The not telling was a flaw (although a nitpick) in my eyes.

    Force sensitive made the most sense.

    I never thought he was going to tell her he loved her. It would have been out of place and awkward as hell, never mind illogical.

    Correct. He was all about Rose, and in this last one, the other ex-Imperial sista.

    Just saw it a second time, and still came away thinking that. Especially the movie potential for Fenn.

    It is interesting that the empire rounded up some people with force sensitivity. By accident.

    From all the movies, the Force is there in everyone. It's a matter of whether or not they realize it (the [sp] medichlorian levels).

    So I ended up in the theater when my buddy was in town and wanted to take his kids to the show. While watching the time when Leia gets ready to take her leave, she's clutching Han's medal. Maz must've taken it from her bed after she vanished. So the Pirate's Cove owner took it upon herself to give Han's medal to Chewie.

    I find it best to not think too much about the things that happen in this movie. If you try and break things down or find the logic behind it the movie becomes rather awful. The less you worry about details the more you enjoy it

    A couple people have asked me about the movie. I have said:

    If you go in as a fanboy, you'll hate it.
    If you go in as an avid fan, but not hardcore, you'll really like it.

    I haven't had too many dissenting opinions on that take at all.
