- Saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 7/10. I initially had 6.5/10 but then I realized that what I had thought to be lack of depth in the plot and characters were simply just similarities to A New Hope. Still, I hated that there was no in depth look into any of the new characters. There was also the parallels between TFA and A New Hope: wayward search for an obi-wan like character goes awry, unknown farm boy (girl in this case) is found and gets caught up in this whole “save the galaxy” deal.Not to mention: a.) track the Millennium Falcon (that ship is cursed in that way!) back to b.) the Rebel/Resistance base to save it from a Death Planet that blew up another planet that later in turn was destroyed by c.) a bombing run by a group of fighters.
Not a bad way to
repeat the seriesstart a new one. I will certainly be watching the 8th episode along with the rest of the Jedi order horde, so I’m definitely looking forward to that.
- Speaking of Star Wars, my new celebrity crush is Daisy Ridley. Oh how you’re so sweet, delicate, yet deadly!
- JJ Abrams did a great job – even though I never once include any of the canon that followed the originals.
- Where the hell did Finn come from? It wasn’t like he has a history of anything.
Anyway – It was a good one watching with the girlfriend and others, but not one I’d go bonkers over it. Go and watch it!
