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 feel really really really odd about Han dying. Mainly because I kind of know the whole behind the scenes thing and Harrison Ford wanting to have died in the end of ESB or maybe it was ROTJ. He really hated being associated with Han Solo for the rest of his life. He didn't want to come back for the new movie(s). Having known all of that and it leaving a sour taste in my mouth -- I didn't really feel *impacted* by his death. It was such a fucking cop out that i can't even.

I do like the way he was killed b/c it gave Kylo Ren a bit of depth but yeah, if I take my logical brain out and just be in the story for the story... God, Han dying SUCKED. Because the way Leia reacted, she felt it in the Force -- was HEARTBREAKING.

I hope his death is revenged/redeemed in the future movies.

I remember all about HF wanting to die in the original movies, I guess I just didn't think Disney would go for killing him off in their maiden voyage, so I really wasn't prepared for it [sighs]
