Star Wars The Force Awakens
When The Phantom Menace came out a couple of years ago my friends and I did twelve hours in line to see the movie at midnight.
Not something I did this time though I have to admit my expectations were still sky high.
But I was for once amazingly unspoiled and yeah, the movie messed with my head a bit but I really, really don’t want to spoil it for anyone else or even take that chance. Even though there’s so much I want to say about the movie!
So what I will say is that it lived up to my high expectations (even with some faults). Seeing the old cast was wonderful and it really did feel like seeing old friends again. I also really liked the young cast. Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Adam Driver proved that could carry this new trilogy for me and Domhall Gleeson was someone, who I don’t think got a lot of press, but was absolutely excellent.
The music was beautiful and the locations were just gorgeous. I already want a toy version of the little droid BB-8!
I actually went with my brother who has amazingly, considering we grew up together, never seen a Star Wars movie (and was quite fine with that) but now he wants to watch the originals. So good job movie! And yep, I’m already anticipating the sequel.
