I just saw The Force Awakens and it was awesome.
You can stop reading there if you want. Go see the movie, rent the movie, buy the movie.
It’s really good. I liked it. Bravo.
I grew up watching Star Wars. I read the books. I played the games. I own the DVDs. I saw the prequels and re-releases in theater.
Much has been said about the original trilogy vs. the prequels. I’m not going to go into that.
I’m also not going to wax poetic about all the little nuances of The Force Awakens because there is an entire internet filled with that stuff. I won’t add to the noise.
As a fan, I’m very happy with this movie. It felt like a Star Wars movie.
I plan on seeing it at least once or twice more in theaters. Anything else I could say would muddle the point.
The Force Awakens is great, go see it!
