Movie of the Week: Star Wars The Force Awakens

movie_2

This will be a simple and quick post, because I won’t drop any spoilers, but WOW, holy mother… that was GOOD! 

Whatever theories I had about the characters, I was wrong. The cinematography is excellent. I love the new characters, especially BB-8 and Rey. I love the old characters and I shed a few tears during the movie, because some things I did not see coming.

The plot is very reminiscent of the first ever Star Wars movie, and I think that was a smart move, because not only it works, but it will also reign in some old and new fans to this new trilogy.

So many known actors in unpredictable roles. So many people I didn’t even see… I saw the movie in IMAX and it was worth it, I now want to go see it again and catch all those little things I missed.

Have you see it? What did you think of Rey? Finn? Poe? BB-8? Han Solo and Leia? Theories? Talk to me!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Official Trailer

Nothing more exciting than being at Starbucks at 11 a.m. in the middle of Tokyo and finding out that a new Star Wars trailer has been released. I should apologise to the poor souls next to me who had to endure the trailer playing on my phone and my squeaking (and almost tears).

*I’m fangirling bad right right now*

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer

Full disclosure, I was never a die hard Star Wars fan, the first ones came out before my time… I watched them all, of course, more than once. I know the characters and the story, I was just never enthusiastic about it (unfortunately).

But they just dropped the new teaser trailer for the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it had me (again, not exactly big fan here) crying… yeah people, I cried! Because  “Chewie, we’re home.” and R2D2 and lightsabers and whatnot… I was in tears… enjoy 😉 !!!

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015) – Official Teaser Trailer

One year to go, but J.J. Abrams is hell bent on getting everyone excited and talking about the new Star Wars and my guess is that was more than accomplished. The first teaser trailer came out today and is very effective in its purpose: it’s a teaser! You finish it without knowing nothing new but pretty damn excited! =D

I really like that this actually feels and looks like a movie of the saga… the colors, the robots… oh… can’t wait for Dec 2015!
