The Force Awakens (2015) (mini-review++)

force(If you’re curious, my review process. It’s also pasted at the end of this post. I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me.)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

The Force Awakens

acting 8

directing 8

effects 9

editing 7

writing 6


3.8 out of 5 🐙


This was a HUGE RELIEF after the prequels. It would have been impossible, I think, to do worse than the prequels. The story was a rehash but great new leads were introduced to shepherd the franchise into the future. Also, I LOVED emo Kylo.







(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
