So I saw Star Wars Episode VII last night..

The good, the bad, and the ugly from a late night trip to the theatre, and getting home afterwards after the continue reading button. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything

The good: Just about everything. They’ve recaptured a feel that was missing from the prequels. I was very hesitant to hear that JJ Abrams was going to helm this.. and wondered if he could helm a movie with the expected amount of “Lucasfilm Magic”. There’s more then that in there. There are so many. “oh, wow, THIS is what Star Wars is supposed to be about” moments in the movie (I could go into a list, but I don’t want to spoil you.) If you haven’t seen it yet, DO SO.

The Bad: Coming out to a ice storm at 1:30 am, slipping on an icy patch of parking lost and landing hard on my side.

The Ugly: My back this morning. Thankfully, one of my family members lived close to the movie theater and I was able to lie down for several hours and then get home when the icy conditions were better.

We have the six hour stream tomorrow night, so I have time to apply ice to the back and take plenty of advil. Can’t wait!
