    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    ADDENDUM: I wrote the below review after my first viewing. Had my second viewing tonight. While I still stand by my statements...I warmed a little bit on parts of the movie. The breakneck pacing wasn't as whiplash inducing upon seeing it a second time, I liked the MacGuffin Treasure Hunt a little better. But my two big issues; Rey and Ben, remain.

    Brief Thoughts
    I honestly didn’t really like it all that much. There’s a few beats and moments I…
