I just bought The Force Awakens on Blu-Ray and enjoyed it as much as I did when I saw it in December. It was not a perfect movie, but it's a fun popcorn film that made me feel like a kid again. Then again, I'm a total fanboy. But I'm also a filmmaker and I know full well that it is largely a rehash of A New Hope. I know that Rey is a little too perfect and that Kylo Ren is a bit emo. Still, it was better than the prequels. But the criticisms of the film made by the folks at Honest Trailers is definitely fair. It's hard to argue with it even though I loved the movie. These guys are some of the most astute critics working today in my opinion.
Plus, Emperor Voldemort is pretty funny. There are serious spoilers, but seriously you know you've seen the movie. It made 2.2 billion dollars, for Christ's sake.
