Back Again – I went to see Star Wars – The Force Awakens yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. I maintained my skepticism right up until the first shot of the star destroyer when I started to believe. It was nice to see a fun and engaging story in a universe which should be really easy to tell great stories in. Makes a good start to the trilogy, hope they take a few more chances story-wise with the next two. This one felt like maybe they were afraid to do anything different? I can’t fault it exactly – it was all just very familiar. The spin-off stories like Rogue One will be very interesting. From what I’ve heard so far it sounds like band of brothers but in the star wars universe – Hell Yes!
