Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review (spoiler free)

I've never been shy about calling myself a Star Wars nerd. As a kid, I would watch the original trilogy over and over again, and attempt to use the force to call objects to me.

I'm going to share my spoiler-free review of that experience with you, below.

10 ways to celebrate Star Wars TFA without spoilers
