    $120.1 million Friday gross. BoxOffice.com is now estimating a $250 million weekend.

    Unreal!

    Adding my voice to the ‘loved it’ crowd, at the risk of espnfan saying that this is another whatever the F he called my fan appreciation of something.  Double-digit Oscar nominations is a must.

    I didn’t know you wrote movie reviews, Tyler. That’s so cool! πŸ™‚

    It was very well written and structured, even though I obviously disagree with everything you said about the movie being “good!”

    However, you are completely entitled to your own opinion, and I respect it all the same!

    Thanks for your kind words. Yeah I wrote reviews on Rotten Tomatoes since 2010 and recently switched over to Letterboxd after RT went to crap. And I respect your opinion too. That’s one of the best things about movies if you ask me, the fact that everyone has such varying opinions about the same piece of art. Again, thank you for reading!!! 

    May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.

    Loved this. Loved literally everything about this. The look. The story. The acting. ALL OF IT. I won’t write a too-detailed review but just a few tidbits. The movie looks great. Even with all of the CGI advances made in recent years, this one feels closer to the originals than the prequels. The story is fun, and while a lot of plot points can be seen coming from a mile away, it doesn’t make them any less exciting when we finally get there. Like someone mentioned earlier, once the action starts, it doesn’t stop. There’s not a moment where I was bored. Daisy Ridley is the star here, and what a thrilling, breakthrough performance for her. I won’t harp on it for too long but it’s so important to have a woman and a black man at the center of this new story, and Ridley’s performance (as well as John Boyega) really got me on board immediately. I hope we see more of Oscar Isaac in the next movies, he was charming and made the screen entirely his own whenever he popped up. Harrison Ford was fun and had a great performance, and I think he’s in the Supporting Actor conversation. Not too confident to pick him yet, but he might. Carrie Fisher was good in her small parts too. I had no qualms about the ending because I love the setup for future films. Unlike Teridax, I have nothing bad to say about this. I’d love to see this throw off the already wacky Oscar race.

    Just got back from watching this, and I was disappointed. Technically, it looked amazing, but it felt like I was watching a movie made for 10-year old boys. Spoilers below. My few comments/questions:

    -how did Rey learn to fly multiple space ships and operate machinery? I know she liked tinkering machines, but it felt rushed. Suddenly, we were expected to just believe everything that she was doing. Suddenly, every little thing that she did turned out to be the right thing (like taking out that compressor, or finding her way out of her imprisonment)
    -Finn. Did anyone find his casting racist? Black guy hired for comedic scenes, whose character was working for Sanitation.
    -the plot was very similar to A New Hope, except that we have the star killer instead of the death star, and kylo Ren instead of Darth Vader. In place of Luke,we have Rey.

    -how did the Storm trooper, Finn, who was barely done with his first battle able to operate and wound Kylo Ren?

    -how did Rey all of a sudden become so good at the light Saber and defeat Kylo Ren? I found the San Andreas fault line appearing between them in the end very convenient.

    -Poe. Did anyone just really accept his disappearance and reappearance in this movie?

    -it takes a Kylo Ren and his force to elicit a piece of map from Poe, but it takes a Stormtrooper to persuade a General Phasma in under a few minutes to lower the shield of AN ENTIRE PLANET?
    -and R2-D2 conveniently woke up in the end for some reason?

    Are people serious about this being a BP contender? This is Age of Ultron-level at best, but with better music and history.

    Jj Abrams Disney -fied this movie. There was no sense of wonder for me. Everything was familiar.

    Teridax, agree with your comparisons. There was no original bone in this movie.

    I too was waiting for that moment when Rey would be revealed as either the sister of Kylo Ren or maybe daughter of Luke Skywalker. 

    This movie was basically a remix of the greatest bits of the original Star Wars.

    You know what I find odd? People complained that the prequels didn’t feel like the original trilogy and now that The Force Awakens came out, fans complain that it’s too much like the original. I myself am a big Star Wars fan, but yeesh..we’re a hard bunch to please, I guess.
