That Star Wars Movie  
I've been wanting to post since I saw it, but wanted to be less emotional. Now it's been a few weeks, I'm giving it a try.

I am so angry!! I loved the movie, even with third generation of whiny Skywalker brat, and I'd gone in spoiler free, so felt totally sandbagged at what happened. They killed Han. I started to cry, and I didn't stop till the movie was over. I don't know where fandom hangs out these days, but all I heard from people was how awesome the movie was. Am I the only one who was/is upset? I remember how angry fandom was when they killed Richie, over 'Last Knight', so many other instances. I thought there'd be some reaction. Maybe I don't know where those places are, but I feel totally alone in this. I don't ever want to see the movie again, and I'm not sure I want to see the sequels. I wish Han hadn't even been in the movie if that was going to be the outcome. I was so excited, as I was watching, that this was the sequel I'd been waiting for for so many years. Boy, I feel stupid. If you loved the movie, that's fine, I just needed to vent. I've been bottling it up, and just had to finally let it out. Nin has a theory about Han not actually being dead, but I don't want to get my hopes up, because I, at this point, am coming to believe you can't go back. Star Wars was a huge part of my teenage/twenties, and I think that's all I get.

Yeah, not less emotional.

(I even did a private post testing the cut, so I didn't screw it up)

Especially since it had very little meaning because we knew next to nothing about this son or their relationship or whatever the conflict was between him and his parents!

Yes, this exactly!! It was meaningless. They took the joy of getting the gang back together and totally ruined it. And the movie held so much promise.

I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one. Misery loves company :) Thank you for taking the time to comment. I understand not really being ready to talk about it. I teared up again just typing up my post.

Nope, not the only one. My sister told me her best friend called her, in tears, immediately after coming home after the theater. I guess she'd loved Han since she was 6 years old. My sister hadn't seen the movie yet and didn't want to be spoiled. But the minute she heard her voice she knew only one thing could create such a reaction in her friend. It sounds silly, since this is a grown woman, married, with a child. But that's how it felt - like our childhood was destroyed. And for no other reason than to be cruel and "dramatic".

Take care!
