The Force Awakens

Star Wars

Mark and I just got back from watching The Force Awakens with our movie-star neighbor. I'm pretty sure Mark's going to need to digest the film for the next several hours, so you get a glib Anna post rather than a thoughtful Mark post.

I won't spoil it, but will say if you loved episodes four through six, this movie is even better. In a way it's grossly derivative of those original stories but there's enough different that it's like watching the whole thing over again with fresh eyes...and with vastly superior special effects and 3D. The characters are top-notch, the landscapes are unbelievable (filmed in Iceland, Abu Dhabi, etc), and the feel is spot on.

And there is no kid-friendly but adult-bane Jar-Jar Binks.

I loved how the movie harkened back to the Holy Trilogy (LOL). It felt right. Doug has already seen it twice (once with a friend), I need to take a day and leave the baby with him and go by myself and see it again!
