In a somewhat last minute decision, I went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens last night, since my buddy Rob had a couple extra tickets. Though I enjoy Star Wars and intended to see it at some point, I didn’t have much interest in seeing it on opening day (or even in theaters) because, well, the movies haven’t really been worth the admission price recently.
But! I’m happy to say that that’s not the case with this movie. It’s entertaining, funny, and honestly a lot more human than I had expected. While it didn’t leave me reeling like Fury Road, it was enjoyable from start to finish, and left me with a host of new characters to care about.
