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)

Don't worry, you are not alone. I was crushed when it happened, though I saw it coming a mile away (nothing good happens over an abyss!). I don't even want a redemption arc for his son, I just want the little fucker to die.

I also want some serious answers on many things: how the hell did this kid get so many grandfather issues? Why did he turn to the Dark/is still fighting the Light? Did Han and Leia have more/better children than this whiny-ass piece of shit? How in God's name did the First Order make a planet into a death weapon?

From what I understand about Han's death, though, Harrison Ford did not want to reprise his role (since he has hated the character from the beginning) and that was one of the reasons Han died. I called it, though; before we saw it, I was talking to my fiance's brother and said, "What if Han, Leia and Luke die in all the films?" He said, "Why would you say that?"

This comment is all over the place. Sorry <3

I'm all over the place too.

I also have so many questions, no answers. I'm told the novelization answers some of them.

I started getting a bad feeling the second Han noticed the brat. I almost shut my eyes.

God, I hope Han and Leia had other kids, ones who aren't total losers like the brat.
