Even though I have some issues with it, overall it was pretty good. Except for the 1-1/2 hour drive to get down to Littleton in crappy weather and lots of traffic, it was a pretty fun evening. We were entertained by a live band doing Star Wars-related stuff, trivia for prizes, plenty of people dressed up in costumes, fun pre-show SW-related commercials and parody shorts AND we got our special Mondo Star Wars glasses.
The first half of the movie felt cobbled together but it flowed decently enough. I was weirded out by some specific CGI characters but I get that they were essential to the plot. It will be interesting to watch this in the context of the other films, in order.
