    Rewatching Force Awakens

    The motivation behind Finn is hilariously thin on second watch; he's put off by violence and horror in the village and then he kills like 30 people, people he's presumably lived and worked with for years, in as many seconds to escape because ???

    Oh star wars

    soldiers fighting in a war can freak out about gunning down a village and not feel the same way when fighting in self defense against an enemy

    it doesn't feel that thin to me, other than I assume these guys are all conditioned specifically for this purpose and it just didn't work on him? I roll with it because I like the story but that seems weirder to me than what you're suggesting

    Surely this fight will have an interesting payoff

    I'm actually really impressed that the movie holds together as well as it does considering the ridiculously minuscule development time it had and they scored a couple of miracles in casting likable leads but it absolutely could have profited from about another six months in the oven

    TFA had to try to be perfect along so many axes and it did a pretty good job along most of them. The story had to be fresh but nostalgic and about old stuff and new people and oh also we have to reset the prequels while also acknowledging them.

    I think they did alright. It's not perfect and there are details I don't like, but I'm super excited for the next one.

    I called it veev in my head when I first saw it. It always had a question mark in my head because I knew I was probably not doing it right.

    The first time I heard it said out loud was one of the Giant Bomb videos and it felt like, of course that's how you say it, dummy. It's like you're 'alive,' or whatever.
