Kevin Smith Reviews Star Wars: The Force Awakens

There are all sorts of spoilers in this "Fat Man on Batman" episode, which, despite the name of the show (it's not actually about Batman), is entirely about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So be warned before you watch it.

Anyway, the new episode of the newly-video-ized show with Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin is focused on reviewing the newest film in the Star Wars franchise. "Oh what a delight it was," Smith summarizes before launching into about 25 minutes of reviewing the movie, basically bit by bit, spoiler by spoiler. It's almost a Chris Farley-style recap. "Remember that time with the TIE fighter? That was awesome," but you know what, at least he's having fun with it.

Bernardin's review is considerably more succinct, with way less spoilers and curse words. It'll be interesting to hear the two of them talk about it together, and not just chatting about it solo, which hopefully we'll get out of a future episode.

Incidentally, there are a handful of thinks Smith doesn't quite get on-the-nose as far as Star Wars canon goes, but he doesn't pretend to be an expert, he's just a huge fan.

The best quote (mild spoilers)? "I like girl Luke better than boy Luke," he says of Rey. "I love that Finn keeps trying to save her, and she keeps saving him. Wonderful performance by Daisy Ridley, I want to see her in everything now." So do we, Kevin.


"I'll be talking about this movie for the rest of my life," he ended, before thanking director JJ Abrams.
