POLL: What’s Your Review for Star Wars Episode VII?

Kylo Ren, Star Wars Episode VII

Star Wars Episode VII seems poised to break every opening weekend record that exists.  Friday, it made over $100 million.  IN ONE DAY.  This is a movie event that happens so very rarely: a highly-anticipated event film that surpasses even the wildest expectations.  Throw on top of that the Star Wars factor, and we’re dealing with a phenomenon that most of us have never seen in our lifetimes.  So, my review (spoiler-free version, spoiler-drenched to come after everyone gets the experience) is up and can be read here.  However, this is such a community event for fans, that I’ve decided to hold the first ever Killing Time Community Review Event.  You’ll have one month, probably bare-minimum the film will rule the top of the box office, to see the film and rate it from 1 (awful) to 10 (on par with the best Star Wars films of all-time).  So get your votes in, and we’ll see what the community consensus is for this latest entry in the the Star Wars Saga.

  1. I’ll wait to vote until I’ve put some distance between myself and opening night. But while I was watching it felt like Star Wars, only better. JJ went with the original trilogy aesthetic, and improved on it by leaps and bounds. Also it was better acted, more beautifully shot… everything.

    And instead of detracting from the film, the plot similarities to ANH throw the improvements into sharp relief. It’s not about being “safe” per se, it’s about purging the franchise of all its negative baggage by going back to exactly what made ANH beloved in the very beginning. TFA is Lucasfilm getting its bearings straight, yet the film is so different and rich that you quickly stop feeling the echoes of ANH working on you, and just get lost.
