star wars the force awakens reviewI went and saw Star Wars the Force Awakens last night at a theater. This is my Star Wars The Force Awakens review with NO spoilers.

This movie is a heartwarming love story that was released in 2004. I don’t think it is well known outside of Japan, China, and Korea. I consider this a hidden gem of Japanese cinema.
