He is, of course, entitled to his opinion. Just as I am entitled to not listen to or agree with his opinion.
How can you say his points were not well thought out when you admit you didnt listen to the whole thing?

Because, as I stated previously, I listened to part of it. It was not necessary to listen to the whole thing to come to that conclusion.

I can't see how you think this is true. Only people I see defending the films are anonymous accounts,

My rough estimate based on talking to people about is that 40% loved it, 30% hated it, and 30% thought "it's ok". Actually, I'd say that the most common comment from that last group is: "I liked it, but hated the casino part".

I'm pretty sure I spent the whole casino planet bit wondering when they were going to find Lando, then I was disappointed that he wasn't there.

Well that and the space Leia Jesus part. Even people who loved the movie said that was just horribly done and stupid.

And they're all right. I have no idea what RJ was thinking with that. Even so, I could not let that bad scene ruin a good movie for me.

Um.. no. The profanity is mostly used humorously/sarcastically.

Ever see someone upset about something and curse while explaining it? As I can not use examples on this forum to demonstrate (for obvious reasons.) Using someones language to determine if they have a point or not is a cheap excuse to dismiss an opinion based strictly on vocabulary.

On an added note - we play a game based on slaughtering millions of people, killing thousands ourselves in the process. This game is based on a movie(s) that blows up entire worlds - yet dirty words offend people.

Luke's last words in the franchise was "See ya around kid" - before he ultimately died because of Kylo anyways. Or the fact that this is the first SW movie where 2 lightsabers never crossed.

Not sure how true it is but another rumor going around is that they did not tell Mark that Luke was going to die at the end. They did the CGI "robe drop" after he cut his last scene. Again, this is a rumor and not one I would be willing to put any money behind but I do find it interesting.

Mark's sudden change of heart after bashing the movie also tells me he was told to shut up. After all, he was very adamant about it. The guy spent the last 40 years believing in a totally different version of Luke (built around Lucas's vision) then he was allowed to portray on screen after the big mouse gained ownership.

To me, this movie was worse than the prequels.
