Star Wars Episode VII Force Awakens Best Movie 2015 Critical Blast

Not that long ago, in a theater very near you, the legacy created by George Lucas took its next giant leap forward in its cinematic evolution. And fans around the world responded resoundingly.


Bringing back Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill in the roles they made iconic in the 1977 STAR WARS EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE (yes, starting with Episode IV confused us old timers even back then), STAR WARS EPISODE VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS carried the story forward, creating new villains in the person of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), new heroes like Finn (Jon Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) -- and introducing a whole new generation of fans to Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and Jedi Luke Skywalker, not to mention the ever-present droids C-3PO and R2-D2..


THE FORCE AWAKENS was a shoe-in to be a nominee for Best Film of 2015, but nobody at Critical Blast could have foreseen just how much of a blowout the voting results would be. In a landslide victory and with 57% of the ballots, the Richard Marquand helmed esaily defeated its second-closest rival, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, which only brought in 14% of the vote, and leaving in its dust films like ANT-MAN and AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.


Congratulations to all involved in this project for a job well done -- as determined by our readers, and your fans.
