All this makes me wish Lucas did his original plan and did the prequels and sequel a lot sooner.

Since the Phantom Menace the Star Wars films just don't have the same magic for me as the three originals.

I always loved in the original that the Force was a magical thing that maybe anyone could tap into and use.

Then PM ruined that by making the Force bound to some mico organisms, so if you haven't got 'em in your system - "NO Force for You!"

So now instead of "May the Force be with You" it should be "May the Midichlorians be in You"

They lost faith and had to die.

That's not really correct - midi-chlorians were in all living organisms, and life couldn't exist without them - so any living creature could access the Force.

As for the science vs magic angle of the Force, the prequels actually added way more mysticism to the Force than was present in the original trilogy.

Finally just saw this.  It was... alright.  It feels very much like a bridge.  That salt planet was a lovely and well used set piece.  The worst part of the movie continues to be Kylo Ren.  He's like all the worst prequel Anakin bits channeled through a darkity dark teen romance garbage novel.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

   I hated TFA. It felt like it was Andy from Toy Story playing  with his toys at the beginning of Toy Story. A child's imagination  being made into a film. JJ  Abrams  only knows how to copy and  make things bigger. A bigger Enterprise and a  bigger  Death  Star. I could go on and on but it  wouldn't  matter seeing  how  the movies are  already made.
    I did enjoy some parts of  the  Finn  and  Rose storyline.
    Can anyone  tell me how the trio of  Finn, Poe  and Rey are supposed  to  be  friends  when Finn is the only  one  who interacts with both Poe and  Rey ? Poe and  Rey  have no real interaction  with  each  other.

I haven't seen that Poe and Rey are all that friendly.  Indeed, when they bumped into each other in TLJ he was like "hi, I'm Poe" and she was like "sure, okay, whatevs".  That's paraphrasing, of course, but I recall being amused that he kinda got the brush off.
