Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Disney made sure that this would be the movie to move the franchise forward...sometimes they - and JJ Abrams - were a little TOO careful. While it draws parallels to older films, fan service is mostly sacrificed in exchange for establishing the "big picture" of the sequel trilogy. I have a feeling my opinion of this movie will change for the better once I have seen them all. But for now, it appears that JJ and Co. are holding off on the biggest emotional payoffs.

Is Episode 7 a good movie? Yes. Will I see it again? Yup, in 3D on Monday. But I cannot help but think that this movie would have been much greater if it didn't have to spend so much time proving that it wouldn't be as disastrous as the prequels.

Daniel Craig shines as Bond, and I hope he has one last try because "Spectre" would be such an awful way to go. At least they trimmed down "Quantum of Solace" to a bearable run time once they realized it was sub-par...
