I was curious about why folk might have such varied opinions so I reached-out to my friends and asked them for their thoughts. My chum Justin actually disclosed he sought-out spoilers before he saw the movie so that he would know what to expect and not get his hopes absurdly high. He loved the movie and was glad he did that. My friend Sarah however was extremely disappointed. She told me that while she loved Episode 7, this one, "Felt too Disney," and seemed more concerned with introducing new characters to sell merchandise than continuing the past stories (something which some reviewers loved and other people have also disliked). That said, she and everyone else seemed to like the Porgs and didn't think they were overused.
