No, TFA is not a science fiction movie, Star Wars, at least the films, are space opera, which is something distinctly different from sci-fi. The opening crawl ruined any chance the film had of getting me interested in the new canon. I am so negative because I was pretty happy with the EU through the NJO and excluding TCW and TFU, and the film managed to rehash ANH and incorporate two of the major elements of the post-NJO I don't like.
