So, I’ve finally got around to watching the dvd, from Netflix. In case someone is as pathetic as I and intend to watch this movie, but just hasn’t got around to it, I’ll try “#nospoilers”.
One spoiler: Running. Lots of running.
It was great to see Carrie Fisher again. She has had such a rough time with multiple sclerosis.
Harrison Ford did a great job depicting Han Solo that managed to reach old age.
Visual effects were stunning.
Another spoiler: What’s with Kylo Ren always removing his helmet? At least Lord Dark Helmet had a retractable face plate!
But as @WarrenHill pointed out and to quote Yogi Berra: “It was deja-vu all over again”. It was as if JJ Abrams, unable to just re-boot the series, decided to show George Lucas just how the original movie should have been.
So, my advice, even if you have already seen the movie and are thinking of watching it again, is to turn off your brain and just enjoy it, which is about how I have to approach most movies anyway.
Conclusion: It was a good movie. (now all you who have been waiting for my take of the movie can go watch it now )
