Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Anyone giving this epically derivative,
competent movie more than two stars might consider this: if the franchise didn't exist, what would possibly make you want to see it?

Alan Cummings delivered his usual super-competent work, and it's quite evident that everyone hired tried darn hard.

The movie even said some uninsipid things about the nature of romantic love.

But when Lucas has the heroine train blindfolded with a sword, swiping away at fairy-thrown objects (imitating the LukSkywalker "use the force" scene from Star Wars), it points to me not to producer George Lucas' wit, but rather demonstrates egotism and an unwillingness to let the writers work.

If the writers inserted that gag, shame on you.

So it was great watching the acting and writing get better over the 12 year period during which they filmed.

But my one sentence critique of this beloved piece of 2014 would be: "Aging is not a plot."
