Let’s see here…

Alright. In no particular order…

  1. Rey…I still haven’t seen it officially stated, but we all believe she’s descended from that Natalie Portman – Carrie Fisher bloodline right?
  2. Almost a disturbing lack of Luke so far…fair to think they’re going literal with the ‘Obi-Wan’ parallels (loner on his own, who may only be making a ‘last cameo’?)
  3. Oscar Isaac is getting pretty close to getting that ‘envy/admiration’ lifetime pass from me. This flick might finally push it over the top.
  4. Speaking of lifetime passes, I’m always going to have a little bias toward the director who I know from personal experience has a clear vision for doing these Hollywood blockbusters. (Being a Starfleet Captain was gravy, but I’m all in if you need me for a day in this Universe, JJ!)
  5. He looks outmatched and that clip, but still, seeing Finn Aziz holding that blue lightsaber.  Man, man, man…

(So let’s see, I’ve got an opening weekend screening, the Christmas screening with my hometown homies, probably a screening with the Office, and I need to just go by myself once to judge it as a film geek.  That’s four.  Might as well round it up and plan to see this five times before the year is out.)

Oh. You’re still here? Did I say that last part out loud?
