The hype surrounding the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, is unreal. It makes me feel like I’m missing something, an inside joke that millions of people around the world are in on.
The Star Wars mania has never made sense to me. Although I consider The Empire Strikes back to be a good movie, the idea that it should be on the same stage as films like The Godfather, Citizen Kane and Raging Bull is alien to me. It doesn’t make any sense.
With that said, I am excited for The Force Awakens. I want this film to be great because I have family and friends that are pinning all of their hopes into this film. I don’t understand it, but I want them to be happy.
