Makes me wonder just what the fuck he plans to do when he finds dear old Uncle Luke.bilateralrope wrote:I'm saying that I think Kylo Ren sucks at lightsaber combat*.

The movie felt rushed and skipped a bunch of bluntly necessary set ups for the centerpiece scenes. (How did Poe Dameron get off Jakku? How did the Resistance base have a view of the destroyed Republic ecumenopolis and its moons from an angle that makes it both close to and between them without being a target itself? How did Kylo Ren get out of the power regulator thing and in front of our escaping heroes? How did Kylo not fall down the big fissure that opened between him and Rey while he was on the ground? How did Chewie get to the Falcon to make the pickup? How did the general have time to retrieve Kylo Ren without knowing where the fuck he was while the planet was blowing up, making the obvious assumption that they didn't kill off their main villain off-screen? I could go on for days, but you get the idea.) The visual effects were fantastic, the acting was superb, but there were plot holes you could pilot that Star Destroyer through.
Speaking of the Star Destroyer, I was kind of disappointed that we never got to see its dorsal surface. All the shots were from the ventral side, showing one side of the bridge tower poking over when the shot was angled enough at most.
