@rekonym: I found they were nothing but respectful towards Luke's and Leia's characters. There was a lot to digest in the film but none of it was bad. The humor was no more forced or cringe-worthy than anything else in any other Star Wars film. I've found that most of the complaints of this film stem from the early-on scene of Leia floating in space and Force pulling herself to safety. They just thought it was bullcrap and poorly done and that after that scene they were pretty much DONE with this film. While the presentation of that one scene was probably not as awe-inspiring as it should have been, just realizing that Carrie Fisher was old and worn out from the years alleviates any real concerns I have about that sequence. Unless of course you're inferring that "we've never even SEEN Leia use Force powers" in which I just have to shake my head at your lack of insight and inference that she's a Skywalker and the Force is in her blood.A lot of the people complaining seem to be unable to do any critical analysis of their own outside of what was presented to them on the big screen. They seem to be unwilling to dissect things, piece things together and use insight from the previous episodes to see the bigger picture. It's a bit disheartening because these are the so-called "Star Wars NERDS" that know every movie backwards and forwards but are unable to piece together that Luke Skywalker is not infallible and has always been prone to judgment.You know Luke Skywalker, right? The character whose bad decisions have affected his entire life. The guy who neglected his Force training to go have his entire world turned upside down by the revelation of his bloodline, lost his hand and was almost killed. You know... LUKE SKYWALKER!!! The one who flirted with the Dark Side and almost murdered his own father before coming to his senses at the last second? Does that theme ring a bell for anything in The Last Jedi? Nah.It's really too bad that some people can't see the monumental steps forward this film series is attempting to take because the old characters cannot carry this series any more. We missed that opportunity 30 years ago when Lucas decided that there was no way to move forward in the films. So here we are with these filmmakers now trying to build a new foundation while giving the old guard some closure. It's not going to be an easy task for any one. I don't care who you are. The fact that 30 years between VI and VII has happened is the new trilogy's biggest handicap and it's one we're going to have to cope with. There is bound to be some turbulence.
