You know who I have a crush on right now?
I think it’s Cassian I have a crush on, to be honest. Not that Diego Luna isn’t crush-worthy, but Cassian is an ideal. A concept. His character arc and his style lit up the screen for me. A hero lost and found.
And I loved this movie. So much. I’m going to buy the book, I loved it so much. And the Blu Ray when it comes out.
To be clear, I’m not a Star Wars fan. At all. I think every installment after the first two has been hugely contrived and poorly executed. Often boring and poorly written as well. The latest one … The Force Awakens … was nearly, freaking awful. It just didn’t reach the depths of the prequels (good golly what a trio of stinkers).
If they did more like this — basically movie fan fics in the Star Wars world — I’d become a fan and quickly. Of course, the quality of screenwriting, acting and production would have to be there as well. I can dream.
