Star Wars: Possibly the most iconic, intriguing, and popular movie franchise of all time. I mean, it spawned its own religion, for goodness sake.

The latest instalment, The Last Jedi, opens over the holiday season, so let's look back at its extremely successful predecessor, 2015's The Force Awakens.

Did it recapture what made the original Star Wars films so popular?

And what moral and political philosophies make up the Star Wars universe?

We have Ray – she becomes an expert flyer within less than a minute. She masters the force by the end of the movie to the point where she can overcome the Emu kid bad guy. So where is the room for character development? Luke Skywalker started out as a whiney teenager who develops into a full Jedi knight over the course of 3 movies. Han Solo deserved a much better death scene – he should have gone down fighting instead of being killed by his Emu kid son. When you first saw Darth Vader you didn’t have to wonder who the bad guy was. Not so this time. I did not like this movie.
