star wars: the force awakens // review // spoiler free

Not very long ago, in a theater only a mile away...

The force awoke.

How long have we been waiting for this day to come?

Just long enough.

The timing was perfect, special-effects clean and practically real. Actors just the right age and with the right attitude.

Can't get much better than this.

The whole movie was a fast paced ride, with many fun jokes and memorable sets. They slowed down just enough for the emotional scenes, and gave some great in-between dialog to keep the story going. The amazing cast really lifted the story with their chemistry, while lightsaber duels and other battles were wonderfully choreographed.

I can't say enough about the characters. I love the way they handled Finn, he's my favorite of the bunch. Ray was great too, she was a strong character, but not overbearing. Po was amazing and very funny. BB-8 was adorable, and wasn't only a simple replacement to R2, but his own character. It was really cool and nostalgic to see Han, Chewie, and Leia returning.

Oddly enough, I really enjoyed the scenes with Kylo Ren. He was a very interesting character, and I can't wait to see more of him and how his story unfolds.

The only thing I had a beef with was the ending. It could have been tied together more neatly, but it wasn't enough to leave you with a bad taste in your mouth.

Over all, it was an amazing ride, and I loved it just as much as the old movies. In fact... I think I've found my new favorite Star Wars episode :)


P.S., please leave a comment on what YOU thought of the movie! I'd love to chat with you :) But remember... spoiler free for those who haven't seen it yet!


  1. I loved it! I agree with you on the ending, though. And Finn!
    Yay! I'm glad I found someone who shares my opinion on Kylo. I pity him. And I think he's really interesting.

    1. Finn's awesome! I really liked the angle they took with him. I don't exactly pity him, but I thought he had an interesting story angle. Can't wait to see where he goes next! Glad someone else thinks so too :)

  2. I thought the movie was a lot of fun, and Po was probably my favorite character, along with the bar owner with the big eyes and glasses. But I was a little disappointed with how it paralleled... another movie which I will not mention. But overall it was a lot of fun.

    1. Yeah, Poe was pretty awesome :) Love the sass in this movie... Did you mean Maz, the little orange lady? I liked her a lot too, even though she wasn't such a big character.


Thank you for commenting! I love comments, so feel free to leave as many as you like, but keep it clean, please.
