Conflicting.  I didn’t hate it as much as the previous instalment in this “trilogy” (in which the parts bear little to no resemblance to each other stylistically or in storyline), but at the same time the whole arc of what’s now a 9-film compendium’s supposed to rest on a plot development which they’ve CLEARLY just made up to get through the final pitch meeting…  I didn’t even mind the space horses so much.  At least this one didn’t have Princess Leia flying through the vacuum of space wearing nothing but a nightgown.

Also – come on…  it’s The Bat Cave fallacy all over again.  A planet that’s seemingly impossible to approach, yet they’ve managed to get enough contractors, tools, and raw materials there to build an entire fucking space armada.
