TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4056 - I'm back from seeing Part VII of the Star Wars film series. I haven't blogged or posted about this latest installment of the Star Wars films before. Sure, I was interested in going to see it on the Big Screen, but nothing made me want to go until last night.
Last night I saw some TV spots where people were going to see it Thursday night. Which got me to thinking... I'll see it Friday mid-morning. So I did. At my local Regal Cinemas theatre. Here's My Take on the film:
The opening was similar to the earlier films with the large font opening as to what had happened since the last film. Okay...
Then the first few minutes ran. Nothing exciting there for me. Actually it was kind of slow for me, even though there was a lot of action going on.
It took several minutes before my interest picked up. Then there he was! Hans Solo and Chewbacca! Allright! Now the film picked up for me.
I won't go in for spoiling for those of you that have not already seen it. I went not knowing much about the film. I wanted to be surprised this time. And I was!
Besides Hans & Chewbacca there were: R2-D2, C-3PO, General (Princess) Leia and Luke Skywalker. It was fun seeing them all again. That was for sure! As each character was re-introduced, my interest in this film continued to grow. It turned out to be a couple of hours of fun viewing. Plus this film is just the first of two more films to be added. I'll be back for sure to see those!
Like I said above, I'm not going to give away the storyline of this film. Just that if you have seen all of the previous six films, you gotta see this seventh one!
For those of you that want to know a little more about the film, please see this link to the Wikipedia entry for the film.
As for my grade for this film, I'd give it a VF/VF+ (Very Fine/Very Fine Plus) 8.25 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grade. It was a fun film, but just a little slow at the beginning of the film. As for the new cast members, I'd have to give a Near Mint Minus (NM-) to Daisy Ridley who played Rey. Her character development in the film was handled nicely. Looking forward to seeing more of her in the films to follow.
