Finn's trooper name, FN-2187, refers to Princess Leia's cell in Star Wars, but also to the short film 21-87 (1964), an early influence on George Lucas. The montage film contains a reference to a "Force" that inspired Lucas's conception of The Force in the Star Wars universe. See more »
When BB-8 is following Rey down the stairs as she is being called to Luke's light saber, there are well over a dozen stairs, but the sound effect of BB-8 clanging onto each step does not match the number of stairs in the corridor. The sound simply fades out, as we are hearing Rey's perspective, as her focus shifts, the sounds around her fade away and she simply didn't notice BB-8 continuing down behind her. See more »
Lor San Tekka:
This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

I understand, but then again, I don't understand...
Take a look at the rating details for this movie and you'll see that the highest ratings are coming from the youngest age group (18 and younger) while the lowest ratings are from the highest age group (45+). This is really all you need to know about this movie.
I understand Disney marketing the movie by saying that "every generation has a story," but it appears that this generation's story is about blatant plagiarism and a sad, obvious attempt at political correctiveness. I don't mind a black male lead, I don't mind a female lead, but every damn movie these days is seemingly directed at this point. Twilight, Hunger Games, Fifth Wave. Girl Power, right? I understand, but then again, I don't understand.
This movie is nothing more than a pc rehash of the original trilogy-- meant to trick the innocent youth who haven't seen them--while at the same time giving the finger to Lucas and those who saw the originals and watched in helpless horror as he was shoved to the curb. It's ironic, the people who Lucas made movies about--the Nazis and the subsequent Empire--have managed to buy out his creation and repackage it for a pop-culture nation so delusion it's seeing the world through a brown filter. I understand, but then again, I don't understand.
After seeing this the first time, I went back for a second viewing to see if I was being too harsh, maybe I missed something, it's a fast-paced movie after all. And I did miss several things from the first viewing, but those things I missed (see any of the thousands of 1-star reviews) only led me to hate this film even more. Abrams did the same thing with Star Trek, turning Khan into a white, deep-voiced menace. Khan Noonien Singh, a white man. It's all for profit and further proof that Hollywood is bankrupt of both creativity and money. Morality? Well, they've been devoid of that from the start.
I suppose I'll be labeled a white bigot woman hater from this review, but that's the way the world works nowadays. Don't dare question the pc pop-culture nation, or else face the wrath of, well...just wait and they'll reveal themselves. Don't dare question anything, just accept it as reality and never question it.
Having said that, I will see the second and third movies from this trilogy, either online or in theatres. Call it curiosity or just a narcissistic necessity. Either way, I understand, but then again, I don't understand.
