Star Wars: The Spoilers Awaken

WARNING: Star Wars: Force Awakens spoilers everywhere.



It’s been three days since I watched Force Awakens. This is the critical period: I can go from loving a movie to hating it in three days’ time. Somewhere between reading up on Tvtropes and writing fanfic, my movie experience gets ruined by something as simple as not finding the POP! figurine of my favorite character.

I still love Force Awakens. In fact, I love it more than when I first saw it.

(It’s a temperament thing. I’m a delayed reactor. Only now am I tearing up about things that I laughed at in the theater.)

Now that I’ve seen the movie, digested it, and read everyone else’s wrong opinions on the YMMV page, it’s time to talk about the movie’s more controversial elements.

You know. The ones deserving of spoiler tags.

Let’s start with the most controversial of them all.



She/her. 4w3. Lover of vegan cream cheese and performative angst. In 2014, tired of my pop culture rants, my mom told me, "You should start a blog!" In 2015, needing a place to gush about the new Star Wars trilogy, I created this site. In 2016, while working an insane schedule at the local bakery, I stopped writing. That same year, I moved to Seattle. Picture every fresh-faced young woman you've ever seen stepping out of a taxi in a movie. That was me...only with a lot more anxiety and shorter hair. Living here has been a trip. I'm not always happy, but I find plenty of stuff to write about. I love to call out, complain, overreact, analyze, and reimagine. This site contains the fruit of that labor.
