A few movies come along that take my breath away and move me in such a way that I have to sit back and take a minute and think “wow that was incredible”.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens definitely took my breath away, it takes place three decades after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, having a new threat arise in the galaxy far far away.
Don’t worry, this is a spoiler free review, I don’t play those reindeer games, I hate spoilers, I hate them so much that I didn’t even go on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram for about a week.
If you were to ask me which Star Wars movie was my favorite, after watching Episode VII, it would definitely have to be Episode VII, no questions asked.
The music and the different locations sucked me in and made me feel like I was there with the characters.
The costume and hair design was absolutely gorgeous, such detail, from Rey’s hair, to Poe’s jacket, to Kylo Ren’s helmet and clothing, to Captain Phasma’s helmet and clothing. Some of these factors including seeing some of my favorite characters from the past movies and the practical effects they used made this movie what it was supposed to be.
I had a lot of favorites in this movie, as you can see from what I wrote before, one of the many things I love is the new faces in this movie. I appreciate an unknown face, especially in a movie like this. Adam Driver as Kylo Ren? What a great choice. He wasn’t very unknown since I watch HBO’s Girls, one of my top favorite shows, definitely check it out. Daisy Ridley is absolutely adorable, especially as Rey. Her character is strong, independent and savvy. John Boyega was so amazing in this movie as Finn, his sense of humor definitely was one of my favorite things about him. Everyone did an absolutely fabulous job in this movie, twice I cried while watching this movie, it blew me away.
The movie was fun, funny, a little scary and brilliant. From the moment the audience in the theater saw those words on the screen come up at the beginning of the movie and then saw their favorite characters appear for the first time in Episode VII was awesome, we clapped and cheered, laughed and I cried. To be around so many people with a genuine love for Star Wars was great. From young kids to adults, the movie had something for everyone. This is the first Star Wars movie I’ve seen in theaters so to be around others that loved the movie as much as I did or are experiencing it for the first time, was amazing.
Please, please, please see this movie, it’s one to not miss.
