I felt a profound sense of relief as this movie ended.* I loved the plot,** I loved the new characters, I thought the old characters were seamlessly integrated, I’m looking forward to seeing what the next feature brings, and I gasped aloud twice.*** Also!, I’m excited that Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were the main characters for the new franchise because they seem interesting to watch.
Cost: $5.00 (It was $5.00 Sunday! I thought they might have an exception for this film, but they didn’t!)
Where watched: Regal Vancouver City Center Stadium 12 with Matt. (And a gaggle of unruly ten-year-old-boys with no apparent adult minder in sight.)
*I had no idea how worried I was that it wasn’t going to be very good.
**Rehash of A New Hope? Don’t care! Still liked it!
***Once when a certain someone took of his mask (This was where my media blackout paid off, as I had no idea who the actor behind the mask was. I love that actor!) once when, well, you know.
