As Kylo Ren says, "You have to break with the past. Kill it, if you have to."

And that's exactly what Johnson does with this installment. Funny, if even flippant at times, and not afraid to sacrifice some sacred cows. This film finally pushes the Star Wars franchises out of Lucas' shadow. It will also probably piss off many die-hard fans, but since these are often the same people who obsess over the details of the prequels - films awful both as cinema and as additions to the SW universe - who cares?

The only downside is the next installment will be directed by Abrams, who will likely bring it all back in line with midichlorians and destiny nonsense, unimaginative hack that he is. So enjoy this breath of fresh air while it lasts.
