Hard to read a movie review and avoid spoilers these days. I'll skip the reviews, go see the movie tomorrow and make up my own mind if its fun fan service. So far Mad Max is the best movie of 2015, SW TFA may be just a weee bit better.

Even though everyone praises these CG movies, the effects seem cheap to me, I dislike them. :/

I'd have hoped a bit more originality was required. If it had any other name attached people would probably think it and okay, sure, but not amazing movie.

At least the reviewers actually SAW the movie before they gave their opinions. I'm seeing it in about 14 hours. I'll give my opinion after then.

Honestly all I hear from reviewers is, "JJA remade 'A New Hope.'" Was that really what people wanted? I'd have hoped a bit more originality was required. If it had any other name attached people would probably think it and okay, sure, but not amazing movie.

I just saw it, just as good as when I first saw it back in '77.
