Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Wed, May 4 2016 8:30 pm - 10:45 pm


After Disney bought the rights to the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas, people (myself included) were justifiably worried about what kind of evil Corporate Mickey was going to do to a galaxy far, far away so beloved by many. Boy, were we wrong. Selectively taking what made the Star Wars universe so good to begin with and expanding it in ways which improve upon it, the first official sequel in 32 years is arguably the best out of all of them. Helmed by Hollywood mogul and fanboy J.J Abrams, The Force Awakens is set decades after Return of the Jedi, where a remnant of the Galactic Empire, the First Order, commanded by General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) seek to reestablish its imperial predecessor by destroying the New Republic. Enter Finn (John Boyega), a stormtrooper disgusted with the First Order’s ruthless methods who teams up with resistance pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) to find Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the last remaining Jedi. But I’m just scratching the surface here. Over 2 hours of magnificent special effects, thrills and heart strings being tugged await you. May the Force be with… uh, I forgot the rest.
