A Critique of Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Part 2 5

This is Part 2 of 6 of a series of videos all about Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

We continue on by getting all of our characters fully introduced and discussed while pushing this wonderful plot along, with bonus tangents to Wall-E, Guardians of the Galaxy, Buffy, Saving Private Ryan and oh! of course, some Star Wars in general.

I rather watch this than the actual movie.

Rian: "I found Hux's character very funny"
Hux in TFA: *Is hitler*

"So Reys parents are no one, unless Kylo is lying"

MauLer saw that shit coming nearly a year before it was revealed.

When 900 years old you reach, watch part 3 you still will not

The 15 minutes of Rey's intro are honestly the best in the sequel trilogy. Also the only part where I noticed any soundtrack.

I want to be free of this pain 42:46

Not finished with it yet, but this has been well worth the wait.

As soon as Finn wasn't a storm trooper, they were back to being emotionless cannon fodder, and their humanity was never even mentioned again.

Its funny, I never heard Star Wars referred to specifically as a "children's movie, " or, "just a movie made for kids, " until it was used as an excuse for its mediocrity. You never hear, say The Avengers, referred to as a kids movie. And you never see good or great actual children's movies spoken about in this way either. No one ever says The Lion King is "just" a children's movie. Even though that's what it is. Very telling, no?

"...but this series will more than likely be released throughout the year."

TFA was designed for the audience to go

“Personally I’m hoping for a ... Palpatine movie”

Oh boy. Then do I have a great surprise for you then bud

Mauler insisting that the third part of his TFA critique "is coming" is like your biological dad telling you and your mom he's going to the store to buy cigarettes.

Funny how People still won't like the Prequels even though they are good World building Movis that explain a lot of Questions but prais TFA for being stale and nonsensicle Movis that just give you more Questions instead of Answers

Daisy Ridley: "Yes, I can. I speak wookie."

The language is Shyriiwook tho 0.o

This would be like referring to the English language as speaking "American" >.>

Slowly but surely you're making me realize just how much this movie "misses the marriage for the wedding". It ignores the long-term consequences of its choices and rewatchability solely for the high of its premiere night. It's the movie equivalent of a party.

"These videos will likely be released across the year"
Mate it's nearly *been* a year
