What can I say? With the help of the Force, Star Wars: The Force Awakens shattered box office records upon its debut. It's the highest grossing movies of all time and with good reasons.

I'm positive most of us have watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Some of us, like myself, have watched the movie more than once. I cannot imagined a fan being disappointed with the story line, let alone not be happy to see the gang back with new fierce characters. One cannot watch this movie and not be astonished by the epicness. It should be a crime if you do so.

As I sat at home with my family experiencing Star Wars: The Force Awakens for another viewing, I couldn't help but be blown away, yet again. With such high definition and spectacular sounds, watching this at home felt like being at the movie theater. The colors are so vivid, then deep and warm, then it changes to another filter. I love how they set the mood according to the settings and even the soundtrack was on point. The effects, the CGI and the costumes were all real. This film was well executed that you feel like you're there. Everything was done with such care and the high quality details goes unnoticeable. Obviously, one of the many reasons why it did so well.

My favorite part of this film are the cast. I love them each individually. They're so amazing that each and one of their character stand out. I loved watching the Bonus section, as we were able to get some glimpse of Daisy's audition video. I loved how she is able to mimic the very same characteristic into the big filmed. How she delivered such talent. The way she shed tears while auditioning, gosh, I had goosebumps while watching her short clip. I wish we could get the rest. Also, I loved how BB8 is maneuver! Never did I think of the possibility that a man would be running around after him. I laughed so hard while watching this. I thought he was controlled electronically. And the fact that there is so many of of them... why not spare one for me?

Overall, Star Wars: The Force Awakens lived up to the hype. This film is simply amazing and the Blu-ray enables you to re-live the moment you first watched the film. So if you haven't purchase your Blu-ray or DVD, I highly suggest you do. Spend time with your family and friends and enjoy this phenomenal film.
