Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens ★★★★★

One of those films that recalls my "budding cinephile" stage in life. Seeing these characters exist within these worlds is glorious, and the cyclical connections binding them are beautiful. Sure, it's somewhat campy and pays a bit to much homage to it's predecessors, but The Force Awakens is an impeccably constructed film, an absolutely perfect catalyst to propel this franchise into the hearts of a new generation. These stories will endure. Anyone trivializing the craft behind this franchise is kidding themselves. Star Wars as a property fulfills one of the very basic functions of cinema, to tell a story that engages us. Little in my life has captivated me as these stories have. Bring on Rogue One and Episode VIII.

Here are all my prior, equally fanboyish write-ups if you care to enter that rabbit hole.
