As I’m sure many, if not all of you, know, Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out over Winter Brea, and quickly went to work breaking box office records left and right. As of a few days ago, it has made 1.7 billion dollars in total revenue and become the third highest grossing movie of all time. So yeah, it was financially successful. But, how did the movie fare critically? The Force Awakens was a great blend of good acting, humor, and action. The first of those three things might surprise a few people, as the two leads Finn and Rey are played by relatively new and unknown actors, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley respectively.
