We can’t believe it finally awoke! We talked about this way back in 2012 HERE.

Movie Discussion:

  • Is BB8 Sentient, or just another hamster in the wheel of life?

Droid Baby


Harrison Ford was AWESOME!  Is there more to his death than we know?

Nods to the original: Chess game, trash chute, broken Hyperdrive, etc…

Was Kylo Ren being Kylo Ben or is he just a Kylo DICK?

Who is Snoke?

Rey is a bad ass, but who is she? (There’s been an awakening!)

Does Finn have “The Force”?

Combing the Desert was apparently NOT in the movie:

Comb No Comb


  • Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, apparently half the cast of GofT, Carrie’s Daughter, JJ’s Dad, and of course Grunny, SO MANY MORE but I didn’t have a clue who they were


  • Sideshow
  • Funko
  • EVERY FREAKING COMMERCIAL  leading up to the release.  
  • Fan Reaction:
