will do.

Dime, any clues as to which link is safe? That site looks like a malware trap.

I watched it again last after a bottle of red wine.

It rocked!!!

I take it back about the yoda scene and Rose was Ok.

The first hour is awesome and the final hour has the throne room/hyperspace/krait fight scenes.

So all good.

Still not sure where I would rank it

Have any of you listened to Alister's TFA commentary? It's just outstanding. I highly recommend it. Especially if you're a Storywonk fan.

I love how literary he is. And his breakdown of TFA is something any detractor should listen to. I don't agree with everything he says (Adam Driver not being compelling is a good example) but in terms of theme and structure and breakdown and how TFA isn't a ripoff of A New Hope, the podcast is necessary and vital. He opens it up and nails it down.

Totally agree.
He has two talks on TFA and they’re both great. The commentary is just ok.

Oh man, I love that commentary. Granted, I've only listened to the first half hour. But I think it's well worth a go.

Well he’s too good sometimes. His mouth is often racing to catch up with his brain so in a commentary setting he doesn’t really get to explore and elaborate as well as he normally would.

Embarassing confession time - I didn't realise Poe was Red Leader until I saw a YouTube video last night :oops:

Watching this again. What a great film. It owes everything to the OT, sure, but it's still such a great experience. I love watching this movie. It's grown better with age.

"If Skywalker returns, then the new Jedi will rise."

It was there all along.

Wow. The people who think TLJ undid or contradicted TFA need to watch TFA again. It's all there.

It's so obvious that these movies were written off of each other.

This movie is fucking great. Wow. That Force Flash... I'm more convinced now than ever that we're going to see that Knights of Ren in the Rain scene in Ep 9. That was absolutely a flash forward.

TLJ was epic storytelling. I loved it. But I miss JJ's aesthetic. TFA has weight. The ships, the VFX, the sabers. They all feel heavy and real. Max doesn't look CGI. It all adds to the immediacy. The stakes are so high because we feel immersed.
