I HAVE BEEN EMOTIONALLY COMPROMISED.
IT WAS SO GOOD, BUT MY FEELS ARE EVERYWHERE
REY, MY BEAUTIFUL TINY BADASS BBY (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
FINN, MY BEAUTIFUL BRAVE HUFFLEPUFF BBY (✿◠‿◠)
POE, MY BEAUTIFUL RESISTANCE PILOT BBY (◕‿◕✿)
AND HAN, OH MY HAN. (;__;) AS SOON AS THE CUES WERE HAPPENING (AND IN HINDSIGHT EVEN BEFORE THAT) I KNEW WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT MY HEART STILL HURTS. Like okay, I know it works for the narrative and I know that Harrison Ford was happy with this decision since he apparently wanted Han to die initially in Return of the Jedi, so him dying in The Force Awakens makes sense to move the story along and to continue with the new generation but still keeping with the older one with Leia and Luke still there and other familiar faces. BUT STILL! MY HEART STILL IS LIKE HAN FUCKING SOLO, HE HAS ESCAPED DEATH MANY, MANY TIMES. LIL BBY REY WAS ALL "YOU'RE THE HAN SOLO!" AND LOOKING AT HIM WITH STARRY EYES AND I WANTED THEM TO BE ALL ADVENTURE BUDDIES AND HIM BEING A PATERNAL FIGURE TO HER AND WHATNOT. I WANTED HAN AND LUKE TO BE REUNITED AGAIN, GDI. I WANTED MORE HAN AND LEIA. THE TRIO GANG ALL BACK TOGETHER. I understood why it happened story-wise, especially since it kind of mirrors the whole Obi-Wan vs. Darth Vader in A New Hope, and Han probably knew it would be a huge risk and a possible suicide mission anyway, BUT IT DOESN'T MEAN MY HEART ACCEPTS IT AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME OKAY.
I DID GASP WHEN IT WAS REVEALED THAT KYLO-REN WAS HAN AND LEIA'S SON, I ESPECIALLY GASPED OUT LOUD IN THE THEATER WHEN HAN SAID HIS REAL SON'S NAME, "BEN". LIKE! THE CONNECTION! I SEE IT!
BUT KYLO-REN, MAN. JUST WOW. TALK ABOUT A MASSIVE TEMPER TANTRUM. WHAT A BRAT.
REY KICKING HIS ASS THOUGH! I LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT. I LOVED EVERY MOMENT WITH REY TO BE HONEST, BUT WHEN SHE STARTED FIGHTING BACK WITH THE FORCE AND LEARNING THE JEDI MIND TRICKS BY HERSELF, OH MAN. AND THAT ENDING WITH HER JUST BEATING HIS ASS, I WAS LIKE YAAASSSSSS!!!
AND NOW I'M ASSUMING THEY ARE SETTING UP FOR REY TO BE A JEDI-IN-TRAINING. WITH LUKE. WHICH I LOVED SEEING THAT MOMENT IN THE END.
AND I BELIEVE THAT REY IS HIS DAUGHTER. LIKE, SERIOUSLY. UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE, I WHOLEHEARTEDLY BELIEVE THIS.
I HAVE OTHER THOUGHTS, BUT THEY'RE ALL JUMBLED UP AT THE MOMENT. NEED MORE TIME TO PROCESS.
BUT GENERALLY FINAL VERDICT: I LOVED IT. I LOVED IT. I FUCKING LOVED IT. BETTER THAN THOSE PREQUELS, LIKE A 10000X. AND REY IS AWESOME AND I LOVE THAT SHE IS BASICALLY THE NEXT LUKE SKYWALKER (PERHAPS MORE WAYS THAN ONE IF MY THEORY IS CORRECT), AND I LOVE THE NEW GENERATION IN GENERAL, AND ALL THE WOMEN PRESENT IN THE FILM WAS SUPER GREAT ON ALL SIDES, AND BB-8 BEING ADORABLE AND ALL THE PRACTICAL EFFECTS AND THE CINEMATOGRAPHY. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE. ♥ ♥ ♥
