I’ve Never Seen Star Wars VII

So, obviously not that many people have, but I’ve never seen Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens. That is, not until tonight! I’ll be at a 00:20 screening of the movie this evening and will be posting a “spoiler-light” review this weekend. I say “spoiler-light” because there will be things I will have to talk about – instances of plot, some cool action scenes, the characters etc – but I’ll be leaving out all the big revelations. We already know what’s likely, though, don’t we? It’s less a mystery and more a jigsaw puzzle; the pieces are there – we know that – but it’s how they all fit together that’s interesting…

So I’ll post my review as soon as I can. Reviews so far are pretty positive across the board. It seems that we have returned to the Good Old Star Wars Of Yore, the only criticisms being that there are moments of such blatant derivation that some portions of the film feel like a Best Of the original trilogy. But then, Star Wars is poetry and rhyming is okay!

I can’t wait to see it! Are you seeing it this weekend? If so, get in touch with your own opinions via Twitter: @gabundy. And ‘May The For-‘ no, I can’t.
