non-spoiler prologue, or, what you need to know
- If you’re an established Star Wars fan, you should see this movie right now. I don’t care what you smell.
- If you’re nonplussed by that last sentence (really, who even are you?), then you should watch the other six episodes of Star Wars in numerical order and then go see The Force Awakens like…right afterward.
- If you’ve already seen it, you should see it again.
But of course, there is much more to be said.
Read AFTER you’ve seen the film.
