    I didn't mention Anakin, but since you did, we're told that Anakin has high Force aptitude. This explains why he can do things the average person can't. We're also told Rey is strong with the Force. Kylo says it outright. We're also shown this explicitly. This explains all we need to know for now about why she can do things the average person can't. She doesn't have to be a Skywalker to be strong with the Force.
    Why does Rey have to be a Skywalker to be strong with the Force? I guess we will have to wait for the next movie to see if the question of her family history is answered.

    I also disagree with your interpretation of Anakin's success in the starfighter as being "accidental". That doesn't jive with the fact that he almost single-handedly won the space battle. I believe we are meant to interpret him as being naive, but that he's unconsciously so in tune with the Force that he instinctually knows what to do just when he needs to do it, even if he's not quite sure how.
    Which is probably why Rey is able to pilot the Falcon so well. I personally like that the person strong with the force it TFA is a female. Also did anyone notice that Han offers Rey a job on the Falcon just like He offered Luke a job on the Falcon in ANH. Han to Luke, come with me, I could use you on the Falcon, your good in a fight or something like that.

    I didn't say she does.

    She doesn't have to be, but I'm going to assume she is one based on Maz Kanata's line about the lightsaber calling to Rey. Until she's not, I think I'm going to assume she is.

    Also did anyone notice that Han offers Rey a job on the Falcon just like He offered Luke a job on the Falcon in ANH. Han to Luke, come with me, I could use you on the Falcon, your good in a fight or something like that.
    I didn't notice that. Interesting...

    I finally read Film Critic Hulk's piece on star wars the force awakens.

    http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2016/06/...rce-alluded-to

    It's excellent, makes a lot of great points. A lot of the points will be familiar to posters here, but Hulk frequently went to greater detail.

    Next up: I'm going to read the most upvoted comments.

    ETA: I liked this comment:

    There are some valid points in there, but I couldn't finish the entire piece. Whoever HULK is in real life, he needs an editor, because he uses about a million words more than are necessary to say simple things. In a review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he uses 2,777 words, or 15,893 characters, BEFORE he writes this line:

    ARE WE READY TO TALK ABOUT THIS MOVIE NOW?
    It's like we're back in time and he's getting paid by the word.
