Cine Beaverhausen: Star Wars ~ The Force Awakens
Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Peter Meyhew as Chewbacca are all aboard, along with the newcomers, so it's a fun ride and most entertaining. But, really, can't there be peace in the universe?
Star Wars ~ The Force Awakens is quite predictable but a good popcorn flick. It features a fierce new female hero. Yet it's all fairly predictable and by-the-numbers. It has nothing really new to offer and actually felt like an updated mash-up of the first three films.
It is, however, briskly paced and action packed.
So, just go out, put your feet up and give in to The Force, even if it's no big shakes.
ps: Happy to read about Carrie Fisher responding Forcefully to her body shamers criticizing her appearance in this film. Did you hear that Bill O'Reilly? Lord knows nobody stays young forever... not even in a galaxy far, far away!
