Non Spoiler; just Star Wars info.

Found out the name Kylo Ren is kind of like Darth Vader. His character is part of the Order of Ren. I'm not exactly sure who they are; but I would assume it would have something to do with Palpatine's inner circle. Like the Darths... Ren is a surname given to an Order member, then either they or their master chooses the first name. In some interviews you can hear Adam Driver refer to his character as Ren Kylo. Saying the name like that actually makes more sense.

He's from the Knights of Ren.


Thanks nin.

Benicio Del Toro is an absolute force when put in these roles. Kind of makes me wonder what role he'll fill in Episode 8. Maybe The Collector?

Perhaps Poe Dameron's father.

How did you see it early? I probably won't see it until Christmas break.

MrsBlue works in children's publishing and has worked on adaptations of the movies, so she got invited to a screening though work. So it was not only extra early, it was actually free (yes, I am very lucky). I didn't see him myself, but I'm told Neil Patrick Harris was in the audience with us.
I guess you could relax better knowing there was a genius doctor in the theater.

Genius television doctor.

My personal order of bestness?

Episode V
Episode IV
Episode VII
Episode VI
Episode III
Episode II
Episode I

For me 7 is right behind 5. In many ways 7 is better than 4.

Edit: After thinking about it for a while I decided to make 7 my favorite Star Wars film. Vader's "I am your father" bombshell is powerful the first time heard but that scene, you know which, is always going to be painful EVERY TIME no matter how many times.

Episode VII
Episode V
Episode IV
Episode VI
Episode III

I'm not putting 1 and 2 on the list because I can't stand them. I hate both films.

I've watched it yesterday evening. It's an alright movie, but it leaves a lot to be desired. Many questions of fans were not only not answered but remain totally untouched, the big emotional scene of the movie did not work for a lot in the audience, and the whole movie feels like only the first half of a Star Wars episode. New main characters are introduced and only some of them work. The big baddies unfortunately didn't, they are a far cry from Vader and Sidious. The casting is also great in some cases (Daisy Ridley and John Boyega are really, really good) whereas in other cases the choices have not been as good (Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac).
The story is flat, VERY flat, the philosphy behind the Force plays no role at all (it's just there), so that this "awakening of the force" somehow does not happen (I don't know what the title has to do with the movie, really).
Of course, it's just Daisy Ridley's force sensitive character that "awakens" to the force, but the force itself does not awaken in any way, it's still around with Kylo Ren and Snoke, and maybe even Luke. Great dialogue by Luke, by the way!
I've watched in 3d, and the conversion is definitely rushed. Very few good 3d effects, mostly it's just two planes (foreground, background) without real depth. I was looking forward to seeing the ships and battles in 3d, it would have added very much to the movie, but it didn't work either.
TL;DR - it's alright. Better than the prequels in my opinion, but definitely worse and more hollow than the original trilogy.

I'm sure you and I have been fans for a long time. Myself since the 80s. However, I have to COMPLETELY disagree with you on pretty much everything. For me the entire film was flawless. Story. Characters. Actors. Special effects. Music! I mean like I left the movie in tears and exhausted. This is pretty much the Star Wars experience I wanted that I never got from the Prequels.

No spoilers. New film is absolutely amazing in every way! I had very high expectations. Not only did the film meet them but it surpassed it. Star Wars proper is back everyone! Dance

On a side note I've been leaving really nice tips lately. Left a $10 tip at lunch and a $15 tip at dinner. My way of saying "Thank you for the excellent service and here's something extra for you and your family to enjoy!"

Wait a secondary! Procedurally generated planets? Chris NEVER mentioned anything about procedurally generated content. He always said everything would be "hand crafted in high fidelity".

Edit: Checked out the Funding page. Appears $41,000,000 stretch goal was Procedural Generation R&D Team.

"This stretch goal will allocate funding for Cloud Imperium to develop procedural generation technology for future iterations of Star Citizen. Advanced procedural generation will be necessary for creating entire planets worth of exploration and development content. A special strike team of procedural generation-oriented developers will be assembled to make this technology a reality."

Not a backer but that's pretty amazing. That it appears to run very smoothly too is surprising.

Nonsense, code is a bunch of cowards who run when they have even close to even odds. Fly a ship with decent defense and they won't touch it.

Reminds me of the scary Troll under a bridge. "Booga! Booga! You must pay me tolls to cross my..." *sees size of person* "Well, I'm out." Troll runs away.

No kidding. I complained about CIG's marketing rigging a community poll for best development studio of year on another gaming news site (seriously, Square Enix was ahead by a mile then CIG's marketing announced the poll on reddit and suddenly CIG had almost 700 more votes) and got attacked by the cultists. To call them immature and rude would be a gross understatement. I don't envy Derek for having to put up with the constant barrage of hate these rabid idiots have hurled at him since he started pointing out that CIG might not be on the up and up.

Don't feel sorry. He knew exactly what he was getting himself into when he took CIG to task and made demands. Besides if there ever a person who can handle it Derek would be that person.
