      TLJ fails in three main ways:
      1) Story/plot/writing
      2) Lore/continuity/respect
      3) Political agenda
      Shytting on the lore was inexcusable. I can't accept that but I could deal with a bad plot if they left out the political agenda. Ep. VII was so much better. I enjoyed that it to an extant the followed same formula as A New Hope. I enjoyed the nostalgia. It's remake in a way and I liked it. In total it did a good job of honoring the past, bringing in new/interesting characters and setting up mysterious for the remainder of the trilogy. Also the pacing and tension as the plot unfolded were entertaining.

        We can only hope Abrams sets up a battle between Luke and Snoke and neither are dead.

        If not, I'll probably be swearing off Disney made SW movies.

            We are all hoping Ep IV starts with Luke waking and Ep. VIII was all a dream.
