Man, i could make a whole new post about this. When people day Star Wars is supposed to be fun!
I don't think it's particularly 'visceral' in terms of being cut, It's certainly no worse than Dr. Evazan losing his arm in A New Hope, Vader and his Magma bath, Luke losing his hand, Vader's unmasking.
But I was glad it was cut in terms of fan service, plot development and character development (Rey and Chewie).
Im like as a kid the movies scared the hell out of me.
