Hey everyone, happy new year!

I saw The Force Awakens for the second time yesterday, and also have finished reading the novelization (which I do recommend, because it fills some of the holes, though it is also based on an older script so some things aren't necessarily "canon"), so I thought it was time to make a reaction post of sorts.

Overall, I really liked it and have decided that it ranks #4 in SW movies for me, sitting neatly in between the OT and the PT. I do think it was a bit long and a bit too derivative, which keeps it from being able to rank higher, but it's a solid start to the new trilogy. And the best part about it was the new characters, who are all pretty much awesome.

I am also glad that JJ Abrams isn't going to be writing/directing the next two films, since a lot of the derivitive-ness came from his style of movie making. Also, Rian Johnson is awesome (at least from what I've seen, which is admittedly only Looper, but I loved that ... he one of my co-worker's favourite director). Though I see that he's only doing the next episode and the Jurassic World guy is directing IX. Not so sure about that, but we'll see. I typically like part 2 in a true trilogy best anyway.

Anyway, now for the more specific stuff ...

SPOILERS! )

I think that is all ... but if you want to know my opinion on anything else, just leave a comment.
