I’ve been hearing things about Star Wars– and not just the newest movie, for as long as I can remember. I knew who characters like Yoda, Darth Vader, and Princess Leia were, and that this series had become a way of life for some people. But as much as I heard, and as much as I read, I never really developed an interest in checking it out for myself.
Many of you who have been following me since my SWEATshirt DRESSshirt days will know of my boyfriend, Greg. As soon as he heard about The Force Awakens, he made it a goal to educate me on at least, Episodes 4-6. After much bribing with back rubs, foot rubs, and trips to my favorite restaurants, I caved (understandably, so), and we tackled all 3 movies in a matter of 2 weeks. To my surprise, they weren’t bad. I only fell asleep for a little bit of time during two of them, but for the most part, I found them enjoyable and simple… in a good way, where it’s classic. I even have a favorite character: C3PO.
We went to see The Force Awakens the day after Christmas, and I loved it. I can’t say that it was everything I thought it would be because I honestly didn’t know what to expect, but I liked it enough to say I’d see it again.
Let me know if you’re also a newbie Star Wars fan who recently saw the movie and what you thought of it!
