Christian, I'm disappointed in you

Hey Christian, have you read this article?

The points you've made against the film are noticeably the same nondescript complaints heard from the highly vocal haters. 'Pacing issues'? Watch it again. Viewers experience pacing issues when their expectations aren't being met. Yes, it has pacing that's different from previous Star Wars films. Guess what? It's a NEW Star Wars film. It should have different pacing, otherwise we're just watching the same films again. 'Fallacies of logic'? Such as? You didn't specify any. 'Unsatisfactory behaviour'? So you wanted Luke to stay the same. Great idea - that sounds really interesting and exciting. And I suppose then you'd be complaining about lack of character development. 'Pointless subplots' - is a subplot pointless because the character's don't succeed in their plan? Maybe it's about the characters rather than the plan. One of the main themes of the film is characters learning from their mistakes. Who the hell wants to watch a film where the heroes never screw up? 'Poor performances by new characters' - You mean Rose and Holdo? This seems awfully like personal opinion presented as consensus. I haven't heard anyone complain about their performances. Is the reason you don't like them because they're women?

Why is Leia using the Force to save herself laughable? Because she's a woman? Do you secretly hate women, Christian? A person can survive exposed in the vacuum of space for up to 90 seconds before they die of asphyxiation. The Force can be used to move objects telekinetically. Even the lightest directional force applied to an object in zero gravity will send the object in that direction forever unless acted upon by another force or object. Leia has the Force - we've seen this. Like Luke, she uses Force telekinesis for the first time in a moment of life-or-death desperation and pushes herself in the direction of the ship. What's so offensive about watching something that makes perfect sense? Is it because deep down you can't stand to see a woman save herself?

Tip: if the critics love a movie, but the kind of shitheads who yell things at the screen and storm out of a theatre don't, then the critics have it right.
