Go see it! It’s the best New Year Present you can give yourself!
What’s my take on it? Umm…well, if you are like me, you will try to get spoilers before you saw it and no one will tell you. But now that most of the world has seen it….
Here is a list of question you can go into the movie theater asking yourself …
“Killing Chewbacca by crashing a moon into him?”
“Letting Rey run naked?”
“Who is the new guy? And whyyyyyy be a double agent?”
“Why do they only shoot in “Guatemala Pyramids?”
“Will they have tissues in the movie theaters?!
“Why does that lady look like that?”
“How old was I?
I hope it helps you understand the movie.
Overall review: emotionally riveting.
