The Force Finally Woke Up
After delaying and delaying, I finally put in the Blu-Ray disc and watched Star Wars VIII: The Force Awakens last Saturday morning. I would have to say I enjoyed the film but wasn't exactly wowed over by it after all these years. Sure it was good to see some old friends, Hans, Chewbacca, Leia but some of the others had parts so small you wondered if they were necessary at all Luke, CP3O and R2D2. All that was left of Darth Vader was a deflated mask. But a new new fresh cast of characters, heroes and villains alike,, were allowed to get into the story and will carry the saga forward. It was something that needed to be done as time doesn't stand still and some of the old characters are getting just that - old.
The movie is still in the Blu_Ray player so I am hoping that sometime this weekend I can find the time to give it another viewing before putting it away.
