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)

I went in unspoiled so yeah, I was pretty shocked when it happened, although I know I'd heard comments that Harrison wanted this to definitely be his last SW movie, so in hindsight I should have figured it out. It pisses me off that the screenwriters seemed to feel that we HAD to have a character die; that somehow we wouldn't be emotionally invested unless it happened, and as we fan writers know that's BS.

And it certainly doesn't make me any fan of Kylo Ren, that's for damned sure.

And not just die, but with no reeaction after. I weas mentally screaming at the screen. Han just died and no one seems to give a damn. Like Chewie would have just moved on with Rey like nothing happened? Just ARGH!!!
