Going on Saturday morning, first time I've bought tix in advance
It's funny that you mention whining when the movie is about the original trilogy's hero becoming a whiney quitter which is completely uncharacteristic of that character. Between Poe's tantrum and Kylo Ren's destructive tantrum (his second of the trilogy), this movie was all about developing emotionally unstable and insecure characters.Loved it. Masterful trolling all around. It's like they made this movie to make the "hardcore" fans whine even more.
You telling me Benicio's role and the whole casino planet wasn't political enough for you talking about how war is a money machine and everyone is at fault? Also strong female characters everywhere; Rey with very little training is strong af with the force, Leia commanding the rebels and when she's in a comma Vice Admiral Holdo takes over and even the commander of the storm troopers Captain Phasma was that tall chick from GoT. Meanwhile all the men are having temper tantrums, crises of faith, selling out the rebels for money, being rescued or bettered by their female counterparts.To be fair, this was written for a generation that is generally emotionally unstable and insecure. It would make sense that the characters mirror that.
I was actually expecting a transgender rebel or some bullshit about the environment.
