Spoiler-free (and spoilered) thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens… with added conspiracy theories…

The short unspoilered version:

The good news: This is a good film. Not as good as the original films, but infinitely better than the prequels. You can safely wipe the horror of them from your memory. Call this Episode IV of the series and get on with your life.

The bad news: The Force Awakens is a remix of A New Hope, and feels oddly – uncomfortably – familiar to anyone who’s seen the original. Yes, it’s 100% Star Wars.  No, it’s not a reboot like Star Trek (2009). It’s a wholly new film – set 30 years after Return of the Jedi – that rehashes the plot of the original.
