Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) & 100 Things I Like About It [with SPOILERS]

32. Takodana, planet of Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o) is a like Endor with Mos Eisley.

33. Maz Kanata is a kind-hearted Jabba. She has lived for thousand years and is quite narcissistic. Count how many statues of her on her palace.

34. She keeps something important for Rey to find. Bu why Rey?

35. Maz Kanata has “a long story for another time” about Luke. But, to whom she’s gonna tell?

36. Rey has a vision like English tenses, about past, present, and future. And there are voice of Old Obi-wan Kenobi and Young Obi-wan and also Yoda. Is there Qui-gon Jinn’s?

37. Supreme Leader Snoke is quite underwhelming, but his giant apparition? Wouldn’t it be treacherous if he’s actually a small man?

38. I love the rivalry of Hux and Kylo Ren: one believe in military method with trained Stormtroopers and one believe in the Force.

39. Kylo Ren is Darth Vader’s fanboy. Much cooler, he’s another treacherous descendant of Skywalker. Oops.

40. Even as a Knight of Ren, the trial Kylo must face is dead difficult: fighting his own father: Han Solo. Oops.

41. Yes, there’s an awakening. But awakening of Light Force inside the unstable Kylo Ren as he admits it to his grandfather’s helmet.

42. Starkiller Base is ways more terrific than any Death Star ever made. It’s a planet, not a star anymore. It’s a hybrid of Hoth and Death Star.

43. That Alderaan deja vu to the New Republic with bigger scale! And you can see how they perished making a decoration to Takonada’s sky.

44. Finn uses a lightsaber to fight First Order armies! How can he use it?

45. That stormtrooper, Finn’s former comrade, knows pretty well how to deal with close combat, specifically against lightsaber!

46. Those X-wings squadron returns! Poe is the Black Leader!

47. That X-wing fighters vs TIE fighter in Takonada is well-choreographed! And Poe is indeed has penchant as a pilot.

48. Poe and BB-8’s reunion is so much sweet!

49. But… Poe and Finn’s reunion is so much sweeter!

50. But… the sweetest is Han and Leia’s!

51. Unfortunately, Chewie steals the warmth from Han.

52. Oh, and C-3PO returns with red arms! And he befriends BB-8.

53. Meanwhile, Rey does something great! Resisting Kylo Ren’s mind trick and leaving him in fear!

54. “If what you said is true, bring her to me!” said Supreme Leader Snoke.

55. And guess what? Rey’s finally realizing that she’s Force-sensitive and using it to escape her cell by mind-tricking a Stormtrooper.

56. And that unfortunate Stormtrooper is… 007! Yes, Daniel Craig is that guy!

57. Again, Stormtroopers do stupid, awkward thing. When Kylo Ren rages out his anger after realizing that Rey’s gone, two Stormtroopers are seen walking out the crime scene awkwardly. They never change.

58. R2-D2 finally returns! Though, he’s in dormant state since Luke’s disappearance. But, BB-8 seems to believe that R2-D2 is still full of use.

59. At the Resistance’s base, I finally saw Admiral Ackbar again!

60. The same thing we learn the size of Starkiller Base, possibly 5-6 times a Death Star.

61. Oh wait, First Order also knows Resistance base actually and plans to destroy them using the same style as they do to New Republic.

62. And they recharge their power by absorbing power from the Sun?

63. Surprisingly, the Resistance decides to use the old way to destroy Starkiller Base; the same way the use to do it to Death Stars. See any juxtaposition?

    1. Thanks, Allie! I have a lot to say about this movie therefore it is. I know I feel you, too. I watched it twice, the answer just didn’t come but it gives me more insight to characters’ motive in conducting things. Also… Many quotable lines although not as provoking a the original trilogy.

      Really can’t wait for 2017? Or 18? Lol

  1. YASSSSSS…so much to love here and I love how you really took the time to break this all down. In fact…your post helped me appreciate Boyega more, as I wasn’t as drawn to him while watching it, or his comic relief and yet your post helped me relive some of his moments in a way that made me like him even more.

    Now I want to watch this again!

    1. I love it so much! I know it’s flawed, but it doesn’t matter at all.
      I watched it twice to finally break down things into smaller things like this.
      And, just so you know, I loved Boyega’s persona ever since the first time he showed up, I couldn’t help but laugh. When I watched it again, the pattern became more clear that he’s destined for that.

      Really hope you like it that much too!

  2. Such a great post!!! I don’t know how you managed to come up with a solid 100 likes (I narrowed mine down to 5 haha), but every point is legit! 08. BB-8 is not just a gimmick! It’s as essential as R2-D2 and C-3PO. YES!!

    1. Thank you, Courtney 🙂 I watched it once and I thought I had many love for it. I tried to recall all things that thrilled me and came up with more than 100 things but I decided to keep it neat by narrowing them down to 100.

      What I said about BB-8 is true, right?

  3. Satu hal yg membuat kecewa, terlalu mirip dengan Episode 4.
    Kapt. Phasma mudah banget ditaklukan, cuma ditodong langsung nurut. Kenapa gak pake perlawanan dulu?
    Kylo Ren lebih baik dari Dart Vader karena semarah-marahnya Kylo, yg dia hancurkan adalah peralatan (benda mati) bukan prajurit atau staff yg ada di sekitarnya. Beda dengan Dart yg hobi main cekik.
    BB-8, bentuknya cuma bola dengan kepala setengah bola tapi caranya bergerak benar2 menunjukkan emosi seperti saat sedih, bingung, atau gembira. Benar2 berasa hidup.
    Unsur komedinya benar2 fresh.

    1. Ya emang banyak kemiripan dengan Star Wars (sorry I refuse to use eps 4)… Tapi elaborasinya bagus sekali. Nggak terlalu same shit different day.
      Phasma sih katanya akan punya banyak role di episode 8, don’t know how yet, though.
      Kylo Ren emang lebih kompleks dan lebih abu-abu yg jelas. Dia masih labil sekali… Emosinya blm terarah hehe

      Overall, episode yg mengalir dgn cantik melanjutkan aliran trilogi originalnya 🙂
