I enjoyed this movie. It was exciting. It was way nerdy too. The film made me laugh, but it also made me cry. I must admit that I cried anytime Carrie Fisher came on-screen. I cried many times during the movie. So, shut up.
Forty plus years ago, I saw the original Star Wars movie in college. Three years later, I was here in Saint Louis and because back then I was working nights, me and some of my colleagues caught the opening morning matinée of The Empire Strikes Back. I’ve seen every other movie from this franchise in theaters too. I guess that you could say that I’m a fan, maybe even a super-fan.
I agree with the general consensus that this is the second best Star Wars. Empire being the best. Still, as a purported super-fan there is still a lot to fully process.
May the Force be with you.
