No-spoiler review of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

NO SPOILERS

‪#‎starwars‬ review.

It is good. 98 on rotten tomatoes good? No.

Star Trek good? No.

But better than four of the six in Star Wars series.

I actually felt bad for J. J. Abrams because I think the next one is going to be amazing and he had to do the heavy lifting.

(Of course that is what they want me to believe and say). I am hooked. We all are.

The "trouble" with this episode is that they had to tie up the old story line and introduce new characters. BTW, trouble is way too strong of a word for what I feel about this movie. I just wanted more than I got.

Maybe I was alone but I spent a lot of time thinking things like "man Carrie Fisher's voice has gotten deep" and "wow, Harrison Ford is moving like he hurts". (He had a rough accident while filming and he is too old to be a rouge in space). I also thought to myself too many times things like: "I don't think he should be wearing that jacket, they both look like they are trying to look young." What is funny, I thought that about the characters not the actors. So they still had me.

I know, stupid stuff. But for me it was all a distraction.

The new characters were great! I love all of them which for the next few weeks will go nameless and unexplained by me. I don't want to spoil it as you should see it without ANY spoilers. It was fun to see it unfold with no idea where it was headed.

Go see it as it is an event. Bring the entire family everyone will enjoy it. Everyone will remember when they went to see it.

Maybe it is getting a 99 because we are so used to seeing stupid characters geared toward seven year olds (jar jar) and HORRIBLE acting (little Aniken). Woof.

In seeing that neither of those two things happened in this episode, one can hear the intergalactic cheers that George Lucas was kept clearly in a galaxy far far away from this movie.

4 out of five.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
