If you took a group playing a Star Wars RPG w/ a really good GM and another group playing SW: X-Wing minisw/ a nice collection, this is what you'ld get in visual form.
No scrolling. Straight into the film.
CGI of Ep IV characters was really well done.
70's haircuts and tech. Nice touch.
Lots of combat
Lots of cool vehicles, ships, guns, and uniforms.
Relate-able characters. The droid was the best.
What is it w/ little Chinese girls standing in the streets crying during battles?
All the media hype about the movie being anti-Trump blah blah blah.....? Throw all that crap out the window. Just another made up issue to try and generate clicks and controversy.
It's not going to do as well this weekend as hoped but not because of nonsense or boycotts, it's the weather. We were one of only about 2 doz people in the theater at a prime time. Ice everywhere. The entire complex was practically empty.
I and the spawnlings enjoyed it immensely. It will be added to the collection.
