Ouch. I feel vindicated for not pre-ordering my ticket. I had a feeling this would go to shit.Sounds like Episode 9 is everything I feared.
I dunno, I've heard lots of good and bad things so far. Most people seem to like it better than 8, but think it's too much of a "we need to tie everything up in a bow" sort of movie and harkens back to the originals too much, like 7.
And....What did anyone expect? It's the End of the Trilogy of Trilogies, so it has to close everything. And 8 was universally panned for trying other things, so they got JJ back to do exactly what he did before.
