The Top Ten

1 "Chewie, we're home."

Harrison Ford's reaction to being back in Star Wars... He won't admit it, but he likes Star Wars. - Therandom

I couldn't hear it because everyone was screaming so loud it blocked the line.

First time I've heard this quote from the trailer brought tears to my eyes

Best Scene in the film

V 3 Comments
2 Rey Rey Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's ...read more.

Just Luke Skywalker in female version, and she was called a Mary Sue by fans.

Personally I thought kylo ren to be the best new character, but Rey was awesome too.

Mary Sue!

3 The action

This movie had the most action, and a few scenes were so tragic, planets blowing up and an iconic character being killed by a son.

Actually, I feel like Revenge of the Sith had way more action than this movie. But it was still entertaining to watch all the action in this film

4 BB-8 BB-8 BB-8 or Beebee-Ate is a droid character in the Star Wars franchise, first appearing in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

BB-8 is a cute droid.

Oh god! This is adorable. I joke around saying he's the son of R2-D2! LOL! - asantalo

He sucked! - darthvadern

5 Jar Jar Binks isn't in it

Probably a huge relief to all Star Wars fans

I hope he is in the 8th one so we get to see him die.

He is annoying.

6 The new characters and classic ones fit perfectly
7 The idea that Rey might be Luke Skywalker's daughter

Let's been honest that are going to happen

Exactly! All the possibilities! Maybe she's Jar Jar's daughter...ok maybe not but I want her to be a Kenobi!

8 It lives up to expectations

The Phantom Menace was an boring and awkward written mess with no entertaining characters, some cringe worthy dialogue (*cough* Jar Jar) and weightless action. TFA did a ton of things right and the fact that it rarely had a single dull moment was kind of an accomplishment. That's how you make a great Star Wars movie - Johnny1248

It actually SUCKED! It was the WORST STAR WARS FILM EVER! I can't STAND IT, it lived up to ZERO expectations, besides the old characters, IT SUCKED!

9 The big twist about Kylo Ren

What he did was the most awful thing in Star Wars.

10 The atmosphere

Yet a very dark and violent atmosphere, the battles were above average, and so was the planetary destruction.

So much beautiful imagery

The Contenders

11 The different planets

The planets in this film are actually not very creative, they're like rehashes of the old and boring ones, Jakku (Tatooine), Takodana (Naboo), Starkiller (Hoth and Death Stars), Hosnian Prime (Coruscant and Alderaan) and D'Qar (Geonosis and Yavin IV), They can't make any more exotic and original planets.

The planets are actually boring and not very creative, the old movies and prequels had amazing planets different from anything we've ever seen, Naboo had cool buildings and creatures, Coruscant had GIANT cosmopolitan buildings and numerous floating vehicles and was one big global city, Kamino was an aquatic and stormy world with artificial cities and white clones, Geonosis was a desert world with weird creatures, Kashyyyk had giant tree cities and wookies, Utapau was one green desert with giant city-filled sinkholes and awesome creatures, Mygeeto had twisted buildings and bridges and skinny head creatures, Felucia had giant exotic jungles and plants, Cato Neimoidia had bridge cities, Sameulcani had giant bulb shaped plants and cacti, Mustafar was a hellish world of magma and lava, with a few buildings, Tatooine was a desert planet with exotic creatures, orbiting two suns, Anakin was born there and Luke was adopted there, Alderaan was one of the most Earth like planets in Star Wars, ...more

12 The comedy
13 The storm trooper suits
14 Kylo Ren's Lightsaber

It is the best looking saber ever

15 Nostalgic moments

We saw the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Leia, C3PO, R2D2, and Luke Skywalker.

All got a warm nostalgic welcome from fans, except for Luke, he gave us nostalgia, but no applause.

16 The plot fits the universe greatly
17 The set designs

Those are the main improvements, but the CGI is still there, but ok if used for the right things.

18 The new ships

This implies mainly to the Star Destroyer that crashed on Jakku long before the movie.

19 Han and Chewy's Job
20 It was shot like a movie from the trilogy

Yet shot almost like a rehash at the same time, which received reviews about plagiarism.

21 Leia's Not a Princess She is a General

That was kind of a dumb move.

22 Kylo Ren's anger issue

This was hilarious. - AnonymousChick

Stupid.

23 The fight choreography
24 Daniel Craig cameo
25 It's as good as the original trilogy
26 The new death star

The new Death Star was called the Starkiller Base, but it still lacked some originality, such as it's behavior and weak zone (same idea used in both Death Stars).

27 The storm troopers can actually fight now
28 The ending

The ending was good, and it got a THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE

29 The tie fighters new paint job
30 Maz Kanata Maz Kanata

My favorite character in the whole film. - darthvadern

31 Finn was able to wound Kylo Ren
32 Chewbacca was able to wound Kylo Ren

It was badass. - Therandom

33 Darth Vader mentions and cameo
34 The x-wings new paint job
35 TR-8R
36 All of Rey's Parent Possibilities

I want her to be a Skywalker or Solo because Star Wars is about them. She could be Ezra Bridgers kid.

Just think about it! Is Rey a:

Skywalker?
Kenobi?
Solo?
Ackbar?

Ok, so maybe not Ackbar. But I want her to be a Kenobi! Too many Skywalker's running all over!

37 The Characters
38 Starkiller Base Is Like The Death Star But A Planet
39 Awesome CGI
40 Better Than The Prequel Trilogy
41 Going To Be A Classic In The Future
42 Awesome Jedi Battle Between Rey And Kylo Ren
43 It's The Number One Movie At The Box Office In North America
44 Harrison Ford Returned As Han Solo
45 Mark Hamill Returned As Luke Skywalker
46 Good Plot
