Kevin Smith gives you the lowdown on Robert Redford's yearly fest in IMDb's Sundance Survival Guide. Catch Kevin Smith at the IMDb Studio at Sundance from Friday, Jan. 19, through Monday, Jan. 22, with interviews and coverage of all the top movies and stars.
Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and the scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
After the rebels are overpowered by the Empire on the ice planet Hoth, Luke Skywalker begins Jedi training with Yoda. His friends accept shelter from a questionable ally as Darth Vader hunts them in a plan to capture Luke.
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padme Amidala, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
Although Disney decided not to use George Lucas's story outlines for Episodes VII, VIII, and IX after the purchase of his company, a couple of Lucas's ideas surfaced in this film, including Luke Skywalker living as a recluse and training a female Jedi (in Lucas's outline her name was Kira).

During the slow-mo chase, the rebels lost 2 or 3 support ships that ran out of fuel. It is established that the fuel for sub-light engines vs light-speed engines is separate. So why didn't they send all the support ships at the star destroyers at light speed to destroy them. The last person on board was going to die anyhow. Or why didn't the last capital ship head to the same planet to cover the shuttle retreat, there by lending cover to the shuttles?
Clarification: The crews of the Ninka and the medical support ship are shown being evacuated to the Raddus before they run out of fuel, leaving them empty by the time they are destroyed. Other Star Wars media has established that jumping to hyperspace through a solid object is incredibly dangerous to any object in the vicinity, including friendly ships, due to hyper-accelerated shrapnel and the complex physics of hyperspace. Because Holdo had a plan to stealthily land on the planet Crait, which she had presumably communicated to other officers, there was at the time no need to try such a potentially disastrous maneuver, Holdo only took such a risk when the threat of total annihilation was imminent.
The evacuation shuttles were already far away from the Raddus when the First Order opened fire on them, making it impossible for the Raddus - a larger, less maneuverable ship with virtually no fuel left - to have reached the shuttles before they were wiped out. See more »
[Rey uses the force to take Kylo's lightsaber]
Hold still that fiery spit of hope. You have the spirt of a true Jedi.
[Rey charges at Snoke with Kylo's lightsaber. Snoke picks Rey up with the force and she lands in front of Kylo. Kylo's lightsaber spins around and stops in front of him]
And because of that you must die.
[Snoke uses the force and turns Rey toward Kylo]
My worthy apprentice, son of darkness, heir apparent to Lord Vader, where there was conflict I now sense resolved, where there was ...

Just came back from the theater and I'm so conflicted. I don't know what to say. I really really want to love it but I really don't like it. The force awakens left so much potential for an amazing movie but this was huge chance missed. Instead I saw a misguided incongruous and incomplete movie that saddens me to my core. The magic is gone, I don't know what else I can say.
