That and i think they wanted to show Palestine as being a supremely powerful force user as well as master manipulator...

Or we are all over thinking this and Lucas and the other Star Wars writers have been given too much credit post film release!
Please...don't let this turn into a Palestine vs Israel thing.

Was he though? I mean all he ever did in the movies was fly the Deathstar trench and use the force to drop some proton torpedoes, while clearly a skilled pilot he never really evidenced dog fighting skills on the same level as Poe Dameron, Anakin or Wedge Antilles even. Lets not forget at the battle of Hoth Wedge is the one who flies around the ATAT and topples it, not to mention his exploits at the battle of Endor.

Luke's up there, but I'd argue the above three plus Han Solo are actually more skilled pilots, and with the exception of Anakin they don't use the Force.

So looks like most cinemas are kicking this out at the end of this current movie week, only a four week run for most cinemas... is his a big “up yours” to Disney for all the hoops and rigmarole they’ve had to put up with? I know January can be crowded but Thor Ragnarok seems to be going out this week too and it has been showing for at least an extra month.

I wouldn’t read much into it, movies go for a month at most nowadays, usually the big blockbusters. Some barely last a fortnight.

Thor was so much more fun to watch and I regret didn't going to cinema for this.

Rian Johnson has stated he be making his own Star Wars trilogy which I am quite reluctant to support seeing how he tells the story is quite poor.

I recall going to see The Force Awakens in early Feb 2016 as it was just about to leave cinemas, so you might be onto something.

I might pop in for viewing #4 this week then.

TLJ has left me immensely excited not only for Episode IX but even more so for Rian Johnson's own trilogy. Out of all the films I'm currently tossing up whether it's my second or third favourite (ESB a clear winner, can't decide if I like TLJ more than ANH).

I want to see it again in cinemas but have been distracted. Thought I had at least another week or two, but will need to lock this in now.
