On the notion of Snoke - I remember being really excited when I saw huge he was, and then disappointed when I realized that it was just a hologram.  I'd love for him to turn out to actually be that size when we finally see him in person, although I sadly doubt it.

Having finally seen this film, I wrote a review in Just Watched. Not gonna post it twice so here it is. If you want to discuss my review, do it in this thread instead of that one.

I think it was convenient that they just happen to blow up every planet in the solar system except for the one Leia was on.

I think she was in a different system.

Couldn't have been. Our nearest star system is 4 light years away. Even if the  system was 4 times closer (the distance from the sun to the Oort Cloud) It would still take a year for the explosions to be seen.

True, but I think the first shot blew up the planet and it's 4(?) moons.

Star Wars has always had a very skewed sense of distances. Realistically the starkiller base shots should take years to even find a target. But then again, ships can move between systems in hours at "light speed"...

I guess it's just one of those things you're not supposed to think about too much.

They explained that.  It traveled via hyperspace.

Star Wars has never been one for science, which is why it's actually fantasy.

They could have simply seen the beam go by (it was traveling FTL, so that's cool I suppose) and then one of the background characters could have informed Leia that they've lost contact with all the planets in X system, because FTL communication is a thing in Star Wars.

On the notion of Thork's nonsense from the other thread:

Disney had to go down the interracial relationship route. There isn't a single eligible white guy in the universe. Only a black guy is virtuous and loyal and would stand up to the empire and is worth the leading lady's attention. Fuck Disney.

While Finn is obviously into Rey (and who can blame him, amirite?), it's not like they had a romantic relationship in this movie.  They might later on in the series, but until that happens, complaining about this seems awfully premature.  Maybe Finn and Poe will have the relationship instead!  A gay interracial romance!

omg, don't talk about gay people around Ghost Spaghetti or he'll remind us again about how many gay friends he has.

Depends on your taste in women. Bit horsey for me.

She kisses him before she leaves to find Luke at the end. I don't think star wars are going to be able to pull off this trick again.

There is no way they are even half-brother/sister.

No, we're stuck watching a black guy pawing a white girl again. If we are going to be all liberal about it, why doesn't she end up with Chewy? He's tall, strong, reliable, single, no kids, an eligible Batchelor, and nice to cuddle at night. Why can't she end up blowing the wookie at the end of star wars viii?

Better yet, why even treat a potential romance as a political issue at all?

She kissed his forehead.  It was affectionate, but not necessarily romantic.
