Will I watch it again? Yes.
Even though I'd heard good things about this picture, I've been burned before with an abundance of positive reviews only to be disappointed. I LOVE this movie. It's one of those flicks you sit back uninterrupted and soak it in. I love the pacing, acting, story, surprises and ending. It's a home run no matter how you slice it. Even though I'd already seen THE FORCE AWAKENS (2015) at least twice by the time I saw this, I did not recognize Gleeson or Isaac at all. Despite the magic of seeing this for the first time is gone, I look forward to seeing this again being more enlightened to the story. The Blu-ray looks amazing but I haven't had a chance to dig through the few extras. Sadly there's no director commentary. It would be great spending spending close to two hours listening to how this all came together.
