I don't think you need to be a fan boy to enjoy this one... or really any of the recent ones... I think Disney is very cognizant of the fact that a lot of their audience are not traditional Star Wars fans.

Ok cool - as a kid I loved the original Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, and return of the Jedi. Was obsessed with them really. 

 Still enjoy the new ones but I got lost somewhere along the way when it comes to the storylines, timelines and characters.

So I need to see it again, but why did the Del Toro character get these guys out of prison, involve a huge chase, then smuggle them on to the dreadnaught and all the way to the thing they needed to get to on it, THEN have them captured? I must have missed a plot explanation - I was pretty focused on the Luke Rey stuff...

  that whole mission for fin and Rose was 45 minutes of pointless movie.  It accomplished absolutely nothing if the point was to grow a relationship between Rose and Finn they killed her 15 minutes later anyways

She's not dead.  But I don't disagree that that was a flimsy plot...

Yeah she's alive lol.

I agree that was too much time for that mission, I do like how it showed the grey area of Star Wars that we never see, but we didn't need it to last as long.   I'm actually happy the mission failed though.

I'm assuming once Del Toro took control of that ship, he decided to sell them out and reach out, probably before he even picked up Finn, but maybe after while he was flying, it's really hard to tell.     He may have already did it when he was talking to Finn about "grey areas" and how empire and rebels buy weapons from the same place.     I mean, let's be honest, there was probably a bigger payday to be had with the Order than Rebels anyway.

I am still agreeing strongly that the Rose Finn thing was off kilter but looking back on it, I think it was a great sequence for younger kids. There was a lot of heavyweight drama going on that may make the kiddies restless, and that subplot was familiar and Disney preachy for them. Need to remember that the movie is not written just for middle aged nerds.

this makes sense thank you, along with his speech on the weapons sales and my idea that this was really a sequence for kids getting in some Star Wars values

It really just caused a bunch of people to die and it kind of ruined Poe's character imo

It felt preachy and goofy
