When Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters last year, it instantly became a money-making machine the likes of which we had never seen.
Suffice it to say, Disney s decision to purchase Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012 was nothing short of a brilliant business move.
Anchored by nostalgia and an entirely new cast mixed in with some recognizable favorites, Star Wars: The Force Awakens immediately began to break any number of box office records, including becoming the fastest film to ever pass the $1 billion threshold in global box office receipts.
But despite the film s uncanny ability to print money, not everyone was of the mind that Star Wars: The Force Awakens was actually a good movie.
As we highlighted a few months back, many of the film s more negative reviews centered on the fact that it effectively presented viewers with the same exact story we had already seen decades earlier.
