Penny for your thought: Star Wars Force Awaken

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

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

Parents
  • This was the first movie in a LONG time that actually felt like the "REAL" Star Wars.  I was fortunate to see the first 3 at the movies (without sounding like an old woman) and I fell madly in love with all things Star Wars.  I was so disappointed with the next 3; they lacked so many components that made me love the 'original' movies.

    I LOVED the fact that I had the opportunity to take my son to this one and have him see a very different version than he has known as the Star Wars.  I felt the same goose bumps and joy when I say Han and Chewie (who doesn't love a Wookie?).  I know it sounds mushy and goes against all things millennial, but I don't care, I loved it (with a dash of angst).  As my son's friend pointed out, the REAL Star Wars to him are the ones that came much later than the ones I loved.  Which lead to a discussion about which movies were the best and by far the argument remains that he feels the newer ones are the best and that I am antiquated.

    Yes, from a purely mental aspect (all emotional ties aside), this film did leave so many frustrating unanswered questions. I felt there should have been a few things that were a little clearer, but as stated previously that just leaves room for more sequels.
