Star Wars Episode VII

I took my kids to see the new Star Wars movie today. I thought it was good and don't agree with a lot of the criticisms. So here's my take. "Too Retro": I've heard a lot of people complain about how much it was like A New Hope. Those are probably the same people that complained because Episode I wasn't enough like A New Hope. It was a lot like it, but it was obvious Disney wanted to show it wasn't going to mess up the franchise, at least not out of the gate. "Rey was subpar": BS. Rey was a BA and while I felt like the directing was forced, no pun intended, at times, I thought Rey was played on point. "How was Rey able to do ________": she lived on her own, of course she is going to have some fairly different talents. And....there are quite a few more but its a freaking movie. Maybe if some people worried as much about real life as they do their favorite movie franchise the world would be a little better place. My kids loved it...
