Out of the Blue

We had a fine old time at The Last Jedi last night. I saw comments here from a couple of others who saw it already suggesting they felt it didn't live up to the hype, but I think I had more moderate expectations going in, so there was less cause for disappointment. I enjoyed the movie and I am very happy to have seen it so early, just so I don't have to worry about spoilers.

Sorry for the lack of sarcasm tags

Don't you just hate it when you go to argue something wrong with a Star Wars movie and people throw up the hand and say "Star Wars is for little kids".

Of course the whole thing is fantasy but I think people are a little more sophisticated in terms of seeing things that are completely beyond the realm of acceptable fantasy tolerances so as to take you out of the immersion of the universe. There are certain rules, even unwritten rules that you just shouldn't break.

Superman flying through the void of deep space, acceptable. Mary Poppins flying through deep space, not so much.
