The Hype Awakens
Just a few days ago, the seventh sequel of Star Wars was released and shown all over the globe. Fans old and new have waited years for this and I had the opportunity to see the movie, even though it's not on 3D.
I am actually a fan of the first Star Wars Trilogy, the first three films starring the young Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford (good looking by the way). As you all know, George Lucas first released episodes IV, V and VI before I, II and III and up to this moment I have no idea why he did that. Unless he had some good explanation for possible story development, you might want to do a little research for interviews.
When I first learned about the sequel, I didn't set any high hopes for it, as usually sequels are worse than B-movies (exclude Pitch Perfect 2 of course). Few days after the show date, I learned it gained excellent reviews from critics so I decided to storm a local cinema in our town and to check it.
And to be honest, I was very impressed with it. It was more than I had expected. JJ Abrams did well with connecting the past events (from the first films) to the newest one with the new characters. I am not a very good film critic, but what I can recommend is that if you are a Star Wars afficionado, you should see Episode VII.
I give it 9/10 rating because we all waited too long for this sequel.
