It was a delight to re-watch this. Abrams has created such a rich & vibrant world set to a spectacular story.
Once all the surprises are stripped out and the nostalgia fades, this is still a fantastic piece of work. I went to a larger cinema this time; I was at the top of a massive room looking down and everyone in the house was transfixed.
In a time where people seem to prefer TV, it’s refreshing to see a film that made no one regret they spent two hours in a room full of people grazing on shitty snacks.
