My film viewing has been mediocre at best for the last few outings but that all changed today. I am surprised to report that I absolutely loved Star Wars! I’m not even a Star Wars fan but this was a very fine piece of entertainment. Balletic action sequences, bright young cast with the return of a few old faces, a self-contained story which occasionally nods to the past. Special mention for Daisy Ridley as Rey, a fabulous, feisty hero. No plot giveaways here, suffice to say there were moments when I’m not sure if I actually clapped but if not I wanted to. Warm, witty and non-stop. Highly recommended.
