Last night ↑ on Blu.
We have a new force here, and it's a young girl. She's ... different. ...Her name is Daisy Ridley (Rey).
Unfortunately, for me @ this present time, that was only the 2D version. I will have to repurchased it again later this year, probably around Christmas.
But I simply couldn't resist, the force is just too strong. C'est la vie, and then we eclipse ourselves, naturally.
My take: I wasn't prepared for a "soft" type of entertaining coming from a movie like Star Wars. ...Soft because it wasn't loaded like some other films from Marvel and DC comic books. No, this is Lucas style; space, large vistas, sand, spaceships, funny creatures, funny acting, funny interactions, languages, and great for kids...from all ages. Some parts, for me, were pretty cheesy, like melted soft swiss cheese on crackers on top of black forest ham and Italian tomatoes slices.
Simply put it was easy to descend through your tongue and throat, with a large glass of fresh milk. ...What all kids and adults love for after school collation @ the director's office. That, or on your knees with your arms crossed in the air (remember that on grade one?).
My eyes were mostly riveted on Rey's face...eyes, mouth, overall facial expression, and walking and running style.
The new round robot was fun to watch too but less than Rey.
What was smooth is the Star Wars signature; the transitions between quintessence and action scenes. Don't ask, just watch...you'll know what it means.
The guys in white plastic suits were still in it, and you would have to pay me extra to wear one of those suits; they look like slaves inside, with restricted movements and head vision.
And the dark side's new black mask wasn't as good as the one we're used to, IMO. ...Even his voice wasn't menacing; it was smooth.
Typical Star Wars action scene with laser guns and light sabers and spaceships collisions. ...Zip, zap, slip in the way (like the song from Simon & Garfunkel), smooth again and not like Gandalf in LOTR with his long cane with a blinding light @ the top of his crystal.
It takes dedication for Star Wars fans like me in making you part of the same movie experience as I saw it using only words.
And besides my eyes are green, most likely a different color than most of you; so I see differently, and hear not the same because the shape of my ears are like small crispy oval pancakes the type they served in maple syrup cabins in Quebec during the season's festivities and food. ...April.
The same actors that were in the original Star Wars (1977); Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill ...they were still there too in this one (2016), wow!
That is 40 years later! ...They didn't look exactly the same, but they weren't supposed to. They were wiser too, except for Harrison. ;-)
It was fine and fun overall: 80.5 (that's for everything...film's storyline, acting, decors, CGI, picture and music score).
Feel good about the Blu; the quality of the picture and audio is into a galaxy far far away. ...Meaning excellent.
Last word: Smooth. And of course I recommend it; it's a Star Wars film, not a Peanuts movie. ...The Peanuts Movie I liked it too, in 3D.
So, comes next Christmas (just a guess), I'll spend more money and get the 3D version, to encourage Disney studios and in helping to provide for all their families.
And I bet this one will also look splendid in 4K, because the pic quality was very good in 2K. ...Sound was fine too, and the music matching Star Wars trademark signature...sort of; perhaps not as good as III - Revenge of the Sith (still my personal favorite).
