There's been a lot of backlash from fans on this one, but I actually disagree. I actually liked this one better than the first one of this trilogy. It differs from other Star Wars movies in the fact that it doesn't take itself too seriously. Most Star Wars movies are serious and broody (and I am a hard core Star Wars fan, I grew up on Star Wars movie marathons, so that's not a complaint, just a fact). And so I can see where some of the sillier or humorous moments seem out of place. You also see a very different Luke which doesn't quite live up to the legend. But I felt a lot of these differences were a good thing. We've opened things up. We're done replicating and copying past movies and we're moving on. So, it's hard, but necessary. Overall, a good movie, fun to watch with some super exciting scenes to balance out some of the sillier scenes.
