Even if I didn`t manage to make it into a midnight shooting, I did see Star Wars The Force Awakens on opening weekend.

I really liked it but didn`t love it as much as the original trilogy. Which is actually not that much of a negative because the original trilogy has years and years of fannishness and nostalgia to it now. I watched it when I was 13. No movie will ever be like it for me. It`s unfair of me to even expect them to be. That said, there was tons of nostalgia here too.

In the end, TFA was lots of fun. I was surprised how much I liked the new cast and wasn`t just focused on the old characters. I was completely spoiled and came to the movie with certain preconceptions and also disappointments, focused only on the characters I already knew but the new ones did manage to endear themselves to me. I thought the actors were likeable and charismatic.

Few specifics on the movie )

Something that did disappoint me for the first time in a Star Wars movie ever was the score. Everytime the music gave me goosebumps was when a beloved old theme came on. Of the new stuff, nothing stood out however. Even Episode 1 had fantastic themes. This was just...hm.
