The Force is strong with Golden Ticket Events’ ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Premiere
My girlfriend and I were fortunate enough to be invited to Golden Ticket Events’ special screening of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ on December 16, one day before it officially premiered in Philippine cinemas. The screening was held at Cinema 3 of SM Megamall – and the crowd was crazy huge!
Here’s a snippet from my review of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ for GMA News Online:
‘The Force Awakens’ brings along with it many beloved elements and characters of the Star Wars mythos, while introducing an entire cantina’s worth of new ones and deftly setting the stage for future adventures. For longtime fans, perhaps the simplest and most effective way to describe it is that it is pretty much how ‘A New Hope’ would be, if it were made in 2015 – from the loud orchestra music accompanying the opening crawl that sends chills up your spine, to the vibrant and visually distinct creatures that inhabit the various worlds, to the action-packed battle scenes. Every element in this film is carefully crafted and calculated — particularly with regard to fan service; aside from all the nods and references to previous ‘Star Wars’ movies that attentive fans will definitely catch, they even used an obscure name from the original draft of ‘Star Wars’ as an important plot device — to capture the rush that wide-eyed fans of ‘A New Hope’ felt, even long after they walked out of theaters on that fateful day in 1977.
