A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

So, who has seen The Force Awakens? What's your opinion? The greatest movie, or a huge disappointment? Somewhere in between?

Let's talk about spacewizards for a bit.

It was good.

I wouldn't say mind-blowingly great or revolutionary, but it was overall a good movie, it had good flow and I liked all the characters. I liked how things developed, and the humor was great.

I didn't like the "and we have an even bigger death star!" plot, but it wasn't central to the plot so I give it a pass.


I'll almost certainly go to see its sequel.

Agreed.

I understand that it's intended to be a reboot of sorts, but it didn't really need to be an almost a beat to beat remake of A New Hope.

I'm hoping they diverge from what was already done in the next two.

I will say that it is refreshing to see a movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. There were plenty of humorous moments without it feeling like a comedy. The last movie that did that for me was Guardians of the Galaxy, a movie with a much weaker plot structure.

BB-8 was everything I was hoping for, and I would pay to see a movie with Poe and Finn just going on space adventures.

All in all, 8/10 for me. I'd watch it again in an instant.

I keep hearing how good Harrison Ford was and I think people are being a little fan-blind. Ford phoned it in again with a bunch of cranky-old-man acting and emotionless line delivery.

Felt kind of the same about Carrie Fisher, but to a much lesser extent.

Everything else was great.

I think the older actors had the weakest acting in the movie. Although, I'm slightly impressed with Carrie Fisher. If her interviews are a sign, acting as a normal person is quite a feat for her.

I've already seen it twice, due to separate social groups, and it's a pretty decent movie IMHO. Plot was decent, abet rather simple, and easy to follow. Light-saber crosspiece made sense, although a few other rather confusing engineering derps were introduced. That being said: this is space-wizards, and half the plot is powered by handwavium and rule-of-cool.
8/10: would recommend.

I'll only link one spoiler, until everyone else has seen the movie to discuss.
