Enjoyed this review from HelloGreedo of the film even if I disagree with some of his points, including the whole Poe thing.

Could someone please embed it as I'm on my cell?

I was just waiting for him to get blown up like porkins.

I don't like the new Star Destroyer btw, looks a mess.

Neo's hate of the healthy body weight challenged is legendary.

It just doesn't make any sense. Although Star Wars is supposed to be "a long time ago" it's still obviously much more advanced than us. There shouldn't be any fat people, either by genetic manipulation or some kind of super-drug they take. Just like there shouldn't be anyone wearing glasses or using paper in space.

In some cultures / periods of history it was super fashionable to be fat as it showed you were wealthy enough to afford lots of food (ancient Egypt circa 1350 BC for example).  I'm sure you could argue that on some planets where food is relatively scarce (Jakku for example) this could happen (LOL).  Semi-related: I only realized Simon Pegg was the ugly alien dude on Jakku well after the credits rolled.

I agree with a lot of his review. Actually he reminded me of a lot of things I enjoyed about it (which can be easy to forget when you're busy nitpicking).  I should probably go watch it a second time too.

 

  He also nailed my feelings regarding Finn (although I didn't like the idea about him being revealed as a plant in the next movie).

idk dude, when you look at their paintings from across different millennia in Eygpt the people look very much to the today's ideal this one is 1400bc

I would hopefully believe anyone with advanced technology such as that displayed in the film would realize being fat is not good for your health and so would end it.

"Honey, do we want our kid to be fat?"
"No way, inject gene serum 123 to get rid of that shit."

EDIT -

"Oh wait, that's not covered by DarthSidiousOcare so you don't get it."

Perfect.

I was thinking specifically of this sculpted self-portrait of Bak and his wife that I'd been reading about recently where he's showing himself with some nice manboobs.

 

This sculpture was made in a brief period when naturalism was in favor, much of Egyptian art is governed by hieratic conventions rather than showing people as they actually looked.

 

(Although I'm no Egyptologist, so you may be right of course).

All I could think about was the backlash at two Star Wars films revealing the black man as the betrayer. No way that makes it to screen. Lol

Remember, this is a trilogy not just a movie. JJ already said that her role will be more prominent in Episode 8...

You guys should be ashamed for mocking Porkins.

 

 

 

Utterly ashamed.
