Alright, before i go on with this review i have to address something that i had stated in a previous post. That being that i “Was done with Star Wars”. I’m not retracting that statement, the fandom surrounding the film’s is still infuriating and it has soured my appreciation for the franchise. That doesn’t mean that i wasn’t curious about the new film, however it was my intention to view it in February or March when all the hype had died down. My cousin however wanted to see it with me, and i’m not that much of a neck beard to give him my bullshit as to why i wouldn’t go and see it with him so off i went, and here we are.
I suppose a disclaimer is needed upfront as to avoid any calls that i’m being purposefully contrarian for the purpose of generating views (ya. My highest view count for years has been 14, one more Star Wars review in the bucket isn’t going to raise that up), however my attitude on the series (particularly with A New Hope) is more negative than seemingly everyone else and that factors quite largely into this review.
I can’t talk about this film without spoiling some things in it.
