I was very excited that J.J. Abrams was chosen to direct the new Star Wars movie – Star Wars – The Force Awakens. I am a Trekkie also and though it took me a little while to embrace the new Spock, I really liked both of the J.J. Abrams directed new Star Trek movies.
As for Star Wars, I still remember being in grammar school when the pre-movie marketing began for the original movie Star Wars (A New Hope) – Soooooo exciting! Such an amazing thing for a little boy to experience. I remember waiting in a very long line to see the movie. Wow!!
When they decided to create the next set 20+ years later, I was very excited that they were going back to the amazing world that George Lucas created. So much fun to see Obi Wan Kenobi in his prime. There were parts that I like more than others but all and all I thought they were great! They did a really good job at telling their own stories and while staying true to the original movies and bridged the old and new very well.
Ok.. Star Wars – The Force Awakens. I really wanted to love it and I expect that I will love the next one…I thought that I might watch it a second time before writing this review but I decided to write now and then watch again and see if I wanted to write an addendum.
