The Force Awakens – Who cares? Not me.

The trouble with fans and reviews like this one is that they are dreadfully wrong about one important point.  It is a movie for 12 year old children.  Land Before Time also created a “mythology”… Doc? The Mysterious Beyond? But it was for 8 year olds… Created by a corporation, for consumption.

The creators of The Force Awakens played safe and simply gave fans of the original trilogy their childhood dreams back, ignoring the fact that Star Wars is not a mere children’s movie, but an imaginative mythology. Even worst, the writers thought that they needed a movie to pander to the fans to apologize for the creative vision of the prequel trilogy.
