|Star Wars fans will enjoy reminiscing with The Force Awakens|
Before the prequels, The Phantom Menace came out in 1999, I was in Hong Kong at the time and my colleague, a total Star Wars fan -- he has models of all kinds of things from the movie -- got me to go with him to see the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
The last time I had seen it was when I was about eight years old and so watching it again many years later was an interesting experience. In particular I loved the witty dialogue between Princess Leia and Han Solo, and having a better understanding of "the force" and how good and evil can be complicated -- that it's not always black and white.

So it was with mixed feelings that I went with my dad this evening to see The Force Awakens at our neighbourhood theatre.

The fight scenes are pretty predictable -- the rebels' X-wings battle the Empire's starfighters, while Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) battles it out with Rey, this time in a snowy forest scene.
