What did everyone think about the new Star Wars Force Awaken?

I thought it was good, yet it raises more question than answers.

  • I was convinced to go. I had sworn off the Star Wars franchise eons ago. I had learned that, regardless of the franchise, episode n+2 , and so on, gets more and more diluted. I am also not a fan of JJ Abrahms at all. He has a very specific formula. To me it is transparent, to the point where it can be insulting.

    But I went anyway... it was enjoyable, not great. I thought there was waaaay too much Leia and Han connecting and remorsing. I did enjoy the new young guns cast. They were fun to watch and they brought a new spirit to the franchise. Kudos to them! BB-8 was a fun droid with personality too. My advice: Luke should have a bit part in the next one, like Yoda did in ep. 5, and then die. Give this franchise to the millennial generation. It is theirs now.
