Spoiler-Free/Plot-Free First Impressions of Star Wars: The Force Awakens
I'm not going to spoil anything, give away any plot details, or character details.
I will say that they made a worthy sequel to the original Star Wars trilogy. It looked great, had awesome characters, delivered an emotional impact, and was definitely a Star Wars movie. It had some elements of nostalgia without being a nostalgia-fest.
My 10-year old daughter could not stop talking about it the whole ride home. I had to tell her not to spoil it for her friends. I'm apparently going to be taking her and a friend to see it during winter break.
