This post will be talking about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so if you’ve not seen the movie… I don’t even know why you’re here.

This is the seventh and final installment in a series of posts where I’ve talked about various elements of the movie (mostly positively, I’m a positive guy) and used a well-known negative review from the Huffington Post as a springboard for my own thoughts.

For a longer explanation, please check out the first post in this series.

This time, I’ll present a few general criticisms of the movie that I’ve heard, and then I’ll talk about the things I didn’t like. Please understand, I really enjoyed the movie, and I’ve seen it multiple times. I’ll see it again. But I think it’s fair to discuss weaknesses in the movie. I’m completely comfortable with people taking issue with what I say, either in support of the movie or as complaints. It’s all good.

As I explained previously, I’m planning on talking about various elements of Star Wars: The Force Awakens by examining the 40 allegedly unforgivable plot holes that Professor Seth Abramson recently published on the Huffington Post. Although it might seem as if I’m just a fanboy defending a movie I like (which is partly true)  I’m also hoping to explain some insights into the characters/elements that seem to have been wildly misunderstood by some. (By some, I mean Professor Seth Abramson.) (more…)

Full disclosure: I really enjoyed the movie, and I am eagerly looking forward to future installments. And I’m looking forward to seeing The Force Awakens again (because at the time of this writing, I’ve only seen it three times and that’s too few, yo.)

That doesn’t mean I think the movie is perfect, there are things that I’d like to examine, but overall I loved it. In general reviews have been positive, but I respect and appreciate criticisms of the movie.

If everyone loved every single thing about it, there’d be nothing to talk about.
