Features the first Star Wars soundtrack to incorporate songs from outside the Star Wars universe: "Aquarela do Brasil," better known in English as "Brazil," by Ary Barroso, and "The Long Goodbye," by John Williams and Johnny Mercer. "The Long Goodbye" was the title song from the Robert Altman film, which was written by Leigh Brackett, who wrote the original draft of the screenplay for Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). (In the first Star Wars film, George Lucas used "In The Mood" by Glenn Miller as a temporary track during the Mos Eisley Cantina scene, which John Williams reworked to the familiar "Cantina Band" theme.)

In the first shot of the scene where Luke talks to R2D2 on the Millennium Falcon, R2D2's head turns towards Luke. In the next reverse shot it is still facing away, then turns around again in the next shot. See more »
So we all know that TFA was just a rehash of a New Hope but on steroids. Well trust me, what JJ didn't steal for that film Rian Johnson stole for this one. There is practically nothing in this film that wasn't lifted directly from one of the other movies. When they do try to be original its an utter disaster.
Leia in space - this doesn't even deserve comment.
The longest, most boring car chase in space ever - I mean this thing just goes on and on and on, and even though they made a point of saying the cruiser was too far away for the weapons to do damage. Every time they gave a long shot of the pursuit, they were firing at them????
Dumb humour - Right from the very beginning there was a never ending torrent of the dumbest attempts at humour I've seen. It just doesn't belong in Star Wars.
I could go on for days about what is wrong with this film but I won't. It doesn't deserve the effort.
