It did not do much for me. A few scenes were impressive (lightsaber fight with Snoke's guards, Holdo's hyperspace sacrifice, the red salt for a bit), but the writing (plot and dialogue) did little for me.

I did not feel the nerd rage about Luke, new force powers (though Leia's scene was lame), Rey's parentage, Snoke's demise, etc. I just thought the entire movie was rather uninvolving. The goofy sense of humor rarely worked for me either.

I am clearly no longer the target audience for these films anymore. The Force Awakens barely got a thumb up from me, and I did not enjoy Rogue One (other than Vader kicking ass).
