thoughts while watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Deacon and I decided to go see The Force Awakens last night. I LOVED it. Here’s my stream-of-consciousness while watching.

There may be some mild spoilers, but I’ve tried not to give away anything big.

  • Hehe, all of these commercials are Star-Wars related. I wonder how much that cost? Was it kind of like the Super Bowl commercials?
  • I’ve seen the Fantastic Beasts trailer already BUT SO MANY FEELS 
  • I AM ALREADY CRYING AND THE MOVIE HASN’T STARTED.
  • That opening shot is so cool
  • Blood on the helmet is kind of grim? Wait, oh…it’s so we can tell him apart from all the other stormtroopers. Got it.
  • Whoa that guy is powerful. Is that Andy Serkis’ character? I can’t tell.
  • I thought BB-8 would be the next Jar-Jar, and he certainly had big shoes to fill since everyone loves R2, but gosh he is adorable.

  • I didn’t expect that to be Rey. She’s so cool.
  • Sand sled!
  • These weird creatures in the background are just like the kind George Lucas added in the later editions that everyone hated and I love it.
  • So…who is Rey working for? Is she is a slave? How old is she? Who are her parents? Not much information here.
  • Is that captain a woman? HECK YES. Also “Captain Phasma” is an awesome name. I approve.

  • I didn’t think I’d like Poe but he is amazing.
  • NO DAMSELS IN DISTRESS HERE. YOU GO GIRL.
  • If Rey is force sensitive, please let her fight with a double-bladed lightsaber because she’s so awesome with that staff already.
  • LOL THIS BANTER IS SO PERFECT AND WITTY.
  • lakdjs;lkajsdf;lkuewaotlj ;
  • Eh, this dialogue is clunky 
  • Okay, so what are they doing here? What is this big monster chasing them? How does this further the plot?
  • I love the use of puppets over CGI.
  • That girl looks like Cara Delevingne
  • Ew, CGI.
  • That’s…not what I expected Maz Kanata to look like.
  • Is she some sort of off-brand Yoda? I’m not convinced.
  • Her statue reminds me of Toph. In fact, her character just kind of reminds me of Toph.
  • how did SHE get THAT? Please don’t let this be a plot hole. Please explain this at some point.
  • Wow. Intense mind-reading scene is intense. And kind of rapey.
  • He is not Andy Serkis.
  • That is not what I expected Kylo Ren minus helmet to look like.
  • Rey continues to be awesome with a side of hilarity.
  • I’m not sure about this plan. I have a bad feeling about this.
  • I think I ship Finn and Poe.
  • NO DON’T SPLIT UP NOTHING GOOD EVER COMES FROM SPLITTING UP.
  • I’m not sure why that’s his real name. It doesn’t really make sense.
  • AL;DSFKJ A;LDKSTUOIUQA 
  • Wait, that thing is a hologram?
  • You know, I bet his fancy crossblade lightsaber does help prevent severed limb syndrome. But it doesn’t seem very aerodynamic.
  • That’s not at all how I expected this scene to go. Kudos to trailer for not giving anything away.
  • SOBBING BECAUSE OF R2D2 and FEELS
  • Who decided that these two characters go on this mission? Was there a vote? Shouldn’t –someone else– have been the one to go?
  • Wow, that didn’t take long to find.
  • Major Korra vibes from her new outfit, which I can’t find a good picture of.
  • I’m not sure what I should be feeling right now but I’m still sobbing because of R2’s appearance.
  • I hope Rey doesn’t gradually become sexualized like Leia and Padme.
  • Well, that felt more like a reboot than a sequel, but I’m not complaining.
