Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Directed by J. J. Abrams

2015

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh installment in the Star Wars series, is an epic space opera. The film is slickly well made with a retro aesthetic designed to provoke nostalgia for the original trilogy. The action is choppier than in the first three films, but Abrams still easily clears the low bar he set himself.

Would see.

  1. How well do you think this film ties in with the prequels and original series? Question brought to light because it seems to overtly imitate “A New Hope”.

  2. The film seems largely designed to satisfy fans of the original trilogy. In addition to almost being a remake of “A New Hope,” “The Force Awakens” has frequent references to the first three films, and a studious avoidance of mentioning any of the prequels. It also avoids the most frequent complaints against the prequels with a return to more traditional special effects, a lack of discussion of galactic politics, and less comic relief intended to appeal to children.
