I finally watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
It was amazing.
It was the biggest movie I’ve ever looked forward to watching. and that’s a saying a lot because I don’t look forward to a lot of things, especially when it comes to movies.
But man, I watched Star Wars when I was little. I played with lightsabers. I played with the Lego Star Wars sets. I read Star Wars books. I played Star Wars video games.
I’m sure a particular reader might roll their eyes at the amount of Star Wars products I’ve enjoyed, but it was awesome.
More importantly, one of the biggest reasons I like Star Wars is because it’s classic good vs evil. A lot of stories like to blur the line in order to be creative, but when it comes to reality, I believe there is light and darkness. Good and bad. Right and wrong.
Star Wars does a good job at depicting this.
The movie also magnificently opened up the Star Wars universe for a new trilogy and a new set of beloved characters.
I can’t wait.
