For more on The Force Awakens…

Star_Wars_Episode_VII_The_Force_AwakensI was not shy in saying that there was only so much about The Force Awakens that I was willing to say with having only seen it once. And I don’t necessarily have to – there’s a lot of great reviews out there, I’m sure. I mean, it sounds like a couple of people have seen it by now…

Including one who wrote up a list of 40 plot holes that ran on Huffington Post which is notorious by now. I was avoiding reading this list, since I didn’t want to taint my future viewings of the film, you know? I was happy to see that fans were putting out responses against it.

That is, until I saw that a Comparative Geeks contributor, Patrick Sponaugle, was using this list of 40 plot points as a jumping-off point to discuss the film as a whole. In, you know, 7 blog posts. Because episode 7! Maybe!

These posts are a pretty great read, and I feel pretty good about the 40 plot holes now as well. There’s really more of some movie tropes, a couple plot troubles, and a lot of misunderstanding. But don’t take my word for it – I recommend Patrick’s!

  1. A Disturbance in the Force (Awakens): Part 1

  2. A Disturbance in The Force (Awakens): Part 2 – Finding Fault with Rey

  3. A Disturbance in The Force (Awakens): Part 3 – Finding Fault with Finn

  4. A Disturbance in The Force (Awakens): Part 4 – Finding Fault with Kylo Ren

  5. A Disturbance in The Force (Awakens): Part 5 – Finding Fault With The First Order

  6. A Disturbance in The Force (Awakens): Part 6 – Finding Fault with Rebels and Smugglers

  7. A Disturbance in the Force (Awakens): Part 7 – You May Fire When Ready

Patrick’s next trick will likely be to get me excited for the next season of Game of Thrones… that might take some work…

  1. I’m very touched (possibly in the head, but I mean emotionally… with that heart-warming feeling)

    Thanks for showcasing my breakdown of the movie, which I loved.
