Back from the aforementioned 10:30 P.M. showing, I'm happy to say Episode 7 harked back to what I love about Episodes 4–6 and introduced intriguing new heroes who won me over easily. I hesitate to judge the villains, not knowing how much of their backgrounds and development was held back for the rest of the trilogy.
The older I get, the more I ask, "Is pre-ordering tickets for opening night and waiting in line for hours worth it?" For Episode 7 and at least 8, my answer is, "Yes."
