Movie Review No. 3: Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)

MontyPython You read the title! If you haven't seen the new Star Wars and don't want me to spoil it for you, go check it out, then come back and read this review. Otherwise, jump right in!


Why, why, WHY?

It's just... KYLOOOO!!!! YOU FREAKING LITTLE *breathes heavily* WHYYYY!!!!

Okay.... Okay.... Let's get the review started....

I finally saw the new Star Wars when it wasn't packed in the theaters. I was so freaking exited! A grin could NOT leave my face when the screen smoothly showed,

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



Then the plot was shown, and I thought it was pretty clever! But now... Let's explain what I thought of the film.

It reached my expectations, yes. And the characters introduced were very interesting! My personal 2nd favorite new character is Poe, cuz he's a f*cking badass with a hilarious personality!

BB8 is adorable. :3

Rey is one awesome character with a strong personality, yet, she was sort of predictable in my opinion.

Finn was interesting and brave, but not always... He liked to run a lot. He seemed like a coward at times.

General Hux was pretty dark, and I enjoyed that.

Then... There's the big one. My favorite new character.


Oh. My. God. He's really intimidating, emotional, dark, sarcastic, evil, UGH! He's so COOL! I love and hate him at the same time!

The plot of the story is a little bit of a ripoff to A New Hope, with the whole Death Star thing and the climax on the bridge, but it was clever in its own way.

The characters brought back from the older films didn't lose their taste for me, and I almost screamed in the theater when Harrison Ford was shown on screen. I was like, "HAANNN MAH MAN, I LOVE YOU OMFG, HES SO AMAZING". And Chewbacca, being one of my favorite characters, I was happy to see! Leia, C3PO, R2D2, and the silent Luke all didn't lose their taste.

The climax of the film left me JAW DROPPED. I didn't cry, yet, I don't know WHY I didn't. My favorite character, Han Solo, was just slaughtered by his son, Kylo Ren... WHAT?!?! It was a original, shocking twist, just like the Empire's shocking twist.

The ending was breathtaking and amazing. It left me excited for the 8th episode.

Overall, in the film, I really did enjoy it! When listing my favorite Star Wars movies, it's probably in my top 5. Speaking of which....

5. Return of the Jedi
4. The Force Awakens
3. Revenge of the Sith
2. Empire Strikes Back
