Easily one of the best Star Wars movies to come out in a while.

It was though. It's a fantastic movie and wonderful addition to the series.

Unpopular opinion incoming, it was really kitschy and although it was good, they could have done better.

I recommend reading Rey's chapter on the book Before The Awakening to anyone who says Rey is a Mary Sue because she's a scavenger who can pilot a ship

Let's ignore that Luke is a farm boy and can fly a ship too, and talk to drones, that sort of questioning totally doesn't apply to him or any male protagonist whatsoever

Honestly, my issue with Rey is her level of power and proficiency solely through instinct. Unless she really is Anakin reborn to atone for his sins, she just feels... like she's on the Jedi Council before earning the rank of Master

It never says she's a good pilot and knows what a hiperdrive is purely on instinct. She's been scavenging ships all her life, and at some point, built a flying simulator, it's in the book I mentioned. Not all of her skills come with instinct and she obviously had to learn how to fight to survive, as she was abandoned very young. She can understand wookie, but we are never told if there are or aren't wookies on Jakku. I get people who don't like Rey and can respect that, bc that's purely a matter of opinion. But putting the label of Mary Sue on her using arguments that are not valid just pisses me off.
