Wow Nadine, looks like you should be writing the reviews, I loved this.
I was tempted to include a long-ish commentary on how the prequels, for all their deep failings, at least tried. All the CGI was a disaster, and the characters and dialog made it irredeemable, and the plot elements were trite, but it at least tried with mediclorians. And it tried, as you said, to offer something dark.
Lastly, I don’t know if it’s the family audience- I think making a story of a fall be a blockbuster is hard. Can you think of a blockbuster that was a downer?
