Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

The film picks up with Luke Skywalker having gone into hiding, a droid with a celestial map of his location, a member of the Resistance, a defector from the First Order, and a young lady who happens upon the droid. No more for fear that someone will call me a spoiler of some sort. I had a great time at the movies. I indulged myself with a rare buttered popcorn (extra small), grabbed my bottle of water, put on my 3D glasses, and found myself completely entertained for the two plus hours. My fear that I would not “get it” since I could not remember the details of the story (it has been too many years ago that I saw the series). However, I am happy to report that it was still fun and made a lot of sense. There were some of the old characters and some great new characters. I thought JJ Abrams was a great choice for director – the movie felt fresh, suspenseful, and exhilarating. Big thumbs up for a film that felt as exciting as when I saw the first Star Wars and what will (hopefully) be the start of a new series of Star Wars films. (2015;4.5 stars)
