Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

The way that I reacted to this film emotionally and the way that my crowd reacted audibly are proof that fans were not ready to say goodbye to the characters and world that Lucas created.
Being a film that is most definitely guaranteed a sequel above all others, The Force Awakens manages to tease out all manner of plot points with the unspoken promise that they will be resolved in later installments, but that also has the effect of making the film feel fundamentally incomplete beyond its status as the first installment in an epic trilogy.
I know a lot of people found this film to be derivative, too similar to episode 4, or whatever there gripes are and I get that, it's not a perfect film, it certainly wasn't the best film made last year, but it was my favorite for personal reasons.
