No spoilers here. (I managed to avoid all spoilers, and hadn’t even seen the trailer. I did see still pics of porgs, though, and I knew the name of the character the StarWars Bros were hating on, so thank you to everyone who did their part to keep the secrets.)
No intellectual critical distance for me while watching this movie. I couldn’t even eat popcorn, I was so totally into the twists and turns; I was a trembling, snuffling wreck for the entire last hour. (It probably helped that my family and I rewatched all the films from Rogue One on in the last couple days.)
During the closing credits I was just pulling myself together when I read, you know, THAT.
