Look, folks. The honeymoon is over. You are just not allowed to unabashedly enjoy The Force Awakens anymore. Oh no. Now you must analyze it to death and write your super hot takes about how it’s not really that great after all and title it with super clickbait-y titles. For bonus points, you can point out several dozen plot holes that are easily explained if you actually watched the film. If you didn’t like the film, that’s fine. You’re entitled to your (wrong) opinion. Different people like different things.
That said, some of these reviews and think pieces have already gotten a little… stale. In order to maintain your sanity and to stay entertained, I present to you… The Force Awakens Review/Think Piece Drinking Game.

- Take a sip for every Jar Jar Binks crack
- Take a sip for ever JJ Abrams lens flare joke

- Take a shot for any article that spoils the film without giving a spoiler warning
- Take a shot for any oh so cleverly disguised racist or sexist comment
