Ok, first things first, this blog post contains no spoilers! If you haven’t had a chance to see what is undoubtedly going to be the biggest movie of all time then don’t worry, I’m not going to spoil any of the surprises that await!
I’ve been meaning to write this blog update for a few days now but decided to wait until I had seen Star Wars – The Force Awakens. Having lived with the hype for the past several months were we going to be disappointed? Was it going to match the originals or or be a massive letdown like the prequels?
Well, I’m not going to go into any detail at all other than to say that Star Wars is definitely back! All the ingredients we know and love are there but with a 21st century makeover.
The original Star Wars movie holds a special place in my heart as it is an integral piece of one of my favourite memories of my later father. I distinctly remember sitting crossed legged on my chair at the cinema next to my dad, clenching on to his arm every time Darth Vader marched on to screen.
Fast forward nearly 40 years and that little six year old fella has been reawakened! I can’t remember the last time I had been so excited about a movie and I’ve never actively tried to avoid any movie spoilers like I have over the past week!
So, 12.05am yesterday, I’m sitting in front of the IMAX screen at Cineworld in Ipswich, 3D glasses on and the opening credits begin. OMG! The opening crawl text, you know the bit I mean – the yellow text that gives you an introduction to the story as it scrolls into the distance of a galaxy far far away, is in 3D and looks amazing! Could this get any better?! Well, the answer is YES! YES! YES!
There’s so much I could write about how much I loved this film but I won’t, this isn’t a movie review after all, but let’s just say ‘GO SEE THIS MOVIE!‘ you won’t be disappointed.
