Review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The earliest movie I can remember seeing as a child is Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. (Unlike most children, my favorite scene was actually the Sarlaac Pit - still not sure what that says about me.) I spent a lot of time playing Star Wars with siblings, cousins and friends. But there were no female heroes for me to play as. I didn't want to be Leia; I wanted to be a Jedi, or maybe a Sith. I wanted a lightsaber.
