Listen, I could spend the next ten posts talking about the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I’ve been waiting for two years for this. No, more than that…over a decade. Well, almost 40 years now since we’ve seen a continuation in the story! And now…it’s here! Thursday night Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally opened to public audiences in theaters in what is aimed to be one of the largest opening weekends in film history. Already garnering a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes from 250+ reviews, the film is more than ‘certified fresh.’ Listen, it fully suffices to say that this movie will be talked about for decades to come, and especially over the next year as we await the next movie. So, rather than write about the opening for days, here’s a blitz of The Force Awakens and other Star Wars articles for your reading enjoyment on this monumental day. And, thank you, Jesus, that Disney purchased Lucasfilm so that we can enjoy this experience.
