Not really. It's actually genius. My only problem is it makes every single Jedi and Sith look retarded for not having crossguards since you can't seem to cut off the emitters at all. Kylo's is implied to be unstable somehow but nothing ever happens. It's a fucking superior lightsaber and I hate it for making everyone else's look bad in hindsight.
Watch the film once just to experience it. Watch it again to look for things in the background, scenes that you weren't paying attention to the first time around, this time with the power of hindsight to better understand why things happened. Watch it a third time to refresh your memory and purge misconceptions from your head put there by people bitching about inconsequential details of a work of fiction not meant to be taken seriously. Repeat steps for use in future debates.
I actually liked the lightsaber. It looks very archaic and temperamental. I thought they would explain that Kylo acquired it from some ancient Sith location during his pursuit of ending the Jedi, but obviously they never did.
Looking back to December 2015, I'm amazed at how little I ended up complaining about the lightsaber. Who would've thought Kylo Ren sometimes being shirtless and throwing temper tantrums would be a bigger issue for me?
I move for a vote of no confidence in Chancellor Kennedy's leadership.
