Anyone else extremely excited about the new Star Wars film? I haven't been this excited about a movie release since LOTR:ROTK in 2003! (I was, unfortunately, correct in assuming that The Hobbit films would underwhelm.) My hopes for "The Force Awakens" have been sky-high ever since learning that Lucas would have no direct hand in them. And judging from critics' response to the movie it looks like it will be a very very fun experience.
So, I've avoided actually reading any reviews (save for two that were explicitly headed "Spoiler-Free") and hope to avoid seeing/hearing any spoilers until after I see the movie Saturday afternooon. I'll come back here and let you all know what I think.
In the mean-time, feel free to discuss the movie here. If you are discussing plot/character details - anything other than what was included in pre-release TV spots and trailers - please put something like *SPOILER ALERT* as a header for your reply.......
I did feel like it hadn't decided whether it wanted to explore new territory or be an homage to the older films. I would have liked it to be more skewed toward the latter ... it felt a little derivative in parts.
But much fun was had! I got a little teary when the old text scroll came on screen.
