Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens (Spoilers Obfuscated)

Even mild spoilers will be in ROT-13 "encryption".

So this is the movie we've been waiting for, these 32 years.  I am not a professional movie reviewer or a scholar of film.  But my hot-take is: Wow!

I say to these people, oh ungrow up!  They'll stop doing that when it stops being good, and fun, and satisfying!  Which is, I hope, never!

We saw this in IMax 3D, and we were impressed and pleased not to be hammered with obtrusive 3D effects for their own sake, but rather letting the 3D aspects serve the film and stay mostly out of the way.  I like 3D most when I stop noticing it.
