I've seen the movie three times now in different venues - drive-in first, then IMAX 3D, then standard theater. Each time I've seen it a different part has made me choke up. The last time it was when BB8 pulled the cover off R2D2. Shit, it felt like seeing a long-lost friend. A robot character in some movie should not make a middle-aged guy feel that way, but if you saw the original movies in theaters and had the action figures and grew up making light saber and blaster sounds, you know what I mean. I was 7 when the original came out. I don't care to debate the merits of the movie; if a movie can make me feel like that while I watch it, bring back those memories, I'd say it's a pretty damn good movie.
