As jj mentioned a few pages back, we saw TLJ together, along with my gf, and it was jj's second viewing, just for context
The film blew me the fuck away on every level- several times i was shocked and looked over to jj who just smiled and said "yup" or " I know" and that was all that could be said about whatever had just transpired.
Oddly i think most of the true outrage against the film comes from people who resent what, to me, seemed to be the core message of the film- "time to grow up, kids"
I think my perspective is strongly coloured by what i have been through in life, and tempered by the fact that i have a bunch of buddies in the 65+ age group and they have a tendency to die off at an alarming rate as time moves along, so the whole story of maturing in the shadows of death kinda hit me where it counts
