Saw the new "Star Wars" - it was good

Right at the start of "Star Wars Episode 7" I was like: "Is that Oscar Isaac?"  And it was, playing ace fighter Poe Dameron.  This guy has unbelievable range from oil salesman Abel in "A Most Violent Year" to the Bill Gates-type guy in "Ex Machina."  He's going to grabbing an Academy Award one day.

I managed to avoid spoilers and there were some pleasant surprises.  But one thing I appreciated was the character development; it wasn't just whiz-bang fighting scenes in front of a blue screen.
