Far better death for an old father-figure pilot:

Speaking of joking, check out the delightful Twitter account of Emo Kylo Ren.

https://twitter.com/KyloR3n

If you've ever had (or been) a surly teenager, you'll laugh.

Examples:
Darth Vader had no father
I envy him

mom please don't even pretend you know what I'm going through right now
also we are out of conditioner

uncle lando said my helmet made me look like a depressed lampshade and then everyone laughed and high-fived him
i hate this family so much

Wow. I find it incredible that anyone could think that scene is anything more than deliberate jingoistic schlock. No accounting for taste I guess.

No need to be mean about it...even if that scene is really dumb. :P

Maybe the differences here are in what catches your emotions—how much you care about the characters. While Independence Day is a guilty pleasure of mine, the scene Anduril posted never has moved me. I don't particularly like this character, and the scene strikes me as action-movie boilerplate. If I felt differently about the character, I'd probably feel differently about the scene.

I do know and like the character Han Solo, and in my one viewing (so far), I found his death scene quite powerful, even shocking, though I'd been spoiled for the fact that he dies months ago.

The ending of Independence Day was total jingoistic schlock from start to finish. Break out the Stars and Stripes, folks, and start waving it around... bleeeeeahhh! :nono:

You'd think the U.S.A. was the only country in the world that mattered.

I love the fact that Hot Topic tweeted back to Emo Kylo Ren.

Note: this is a possible spoiler for the next film:

Spoiler: show
Apparently images of a Finn puzzle that identify him as "Finn Calrissian" appeared on Amazon.

That would be disappointing. Like there's only one black family in the Galaxy...

I agree. There are clearly two (Samuel L. Jackson's character).

Probably Lando's Grandad.

His first name is "adopted," maybe his last name is too? But it does look to me like it's shaping up that Finn, Kylo Ren, and Rey are all going to be related to the original heroes. Maybe it will turn out that Poe is too. :)
