After going to the premiere Thursday night, I was undecided. I went back Friday afternoon, and loved it. I can certainly understand why it's caused so much backlash, what happens in this one is so shocking and unexpected, and so many twists and turns, it's hard to take it all in at once. I didn't think the humor was over the top. I personally liked the opening with Hux and Poe, Hux (not one of my favorite characters) totally being dismissed as a threat was hilarious. Say what you want about the porgs, I loved them as soon as I saw them in the D23 footage, and I loved them in the movie. I don't think they overshadowed anything. I also love that Snoke was taken out like a punk lol (go Supreme Leader Ren!!!) I was a little disappointed that there was no confrontation between Leia and Kylo, and no further mention of the Knights of Ren, but everything else made up for it IMO. I believe Phasma survived that fall and will be back. The fight between her and Finn, though brief, was awesome and I like how it showed part of Gwendoline's face after Finn whacks her with the riot baton. And of course everyone's devastated about Luke, but you know he'll be back as a Force ghost in the next movie, just like Obi-Wan was brought back as one in ESB and ROTJ. TLJ isn't the best of the saga, but it's certainly not the worst.
