That's my review.

One of my many faults is that I like pretty much everyone who's not CTM or DRPK, so any inter-Chewer drama would bum me the eff out if I didn't take the mick out of it.

Bucho and and me get along great.

 I don't care what color the lightsabers are, just as long as this movie doesn't do anything stupid like change the backstory of Rey's parents. I like that she isn't destined to be who she is. She just wants to use her natural talents to do good.
I've got good news and I've got bad news. The bad news is that I have lost my way. The good news is that I'm way ahead of schedule.

I like that Rian took one giant step away from the Force being a hereditary talent exclusively. I like that it's both.

I thought the Force was like God. You either believed in it or you didn't. But the greater your belief, the stronger you were with the Force.

Granted, I consider the prequels to be apocryphal.

Surely there's characters who have the force who aren't believers in the canon somewhere... Is Rey a believer to start?

George Lucas beat him to the punch.

The Force has more to do with Buddhism than typical God belief. “Let go. Trust your instincts.” The Force is often referred to as an energy field. It’s less anthropomorphic and more Consciousness based, where all is one and one is all. “Reach it out with your feelings.” Zen teaches you to stay out of your intellect (thinking) because it gets in the way.

Yeah, I always interpreted that everyone is connected to the Force. Medichlorians wasn't meant to explain that there's only a subset of people that can tap into the force like many fans falsely interpreted, it was just a way to explain why the Skywalker bloodline is exceptional. Keep in mind, JEDI was the first film to make it explicit that the Skywalkers are special with The Force and why Leia would be the next best hope after Luke. THE PHANTOM MENACE simply continued that line of thinking by adding technobabble to it, for better or worse.

My problem with the Midichlorians as an element of the story is that it takes this big, spiritual concept of "The Force" and makes it mundanely quantifiable via what are, essentially, bacteria. It removes a lot of the mystery and romance just so that Lucas can emphasize (through exposition, no less, not deeds) that Anakin is powerful.
If we can dream it, then we can do it.

Luckily it's pretty easily ignored.

I didn't need anymore exposition about The Force then what Obi-Wan gives in ANH. That and Yoda's. "Luminous creatures are we; not this crude matter."

Well this thread is top quality.

You could chalk Qui-Gon’s foolish midichloreans statement as people in the past who had the best understanding at the time of The Force and that nobody I realized how much less physical it ended up being.

Wow.  You made it even worse.

Midichlorians are forgivable. Virgin-birthing Anakin isn’t.
