Just A Few More Weeks Until The New Star Wars!!!!!!!!!!

Just A Few More Weeks Until The New Star Wars!!!!!!!!!!
I seriously can't wait until this new movie comes out, free from the clutches of George Lucas and into the hands of better screen writers, and with more practical effects.

I'm hopefully optimistic.

Let's hope it lives up to the hype.

It comes out on my birthday. Guess what I'll be doing that day? Smile

As for it being good, I've been keeping my expectations low so as long as it's not a repeat of episodes 1-3 then I'll be pleasantly surprised.

This is the first one I have been excited about since the first 3 (I don't count the ones they call the first 3)

Ugh, let's just hope it is less of a let-down than Jurassic World in the writing and direction department.

I have no desire to see it. I quite liked the first three (and even re-watched one of them recently), but I think my appreciation has more to do with a sense of nostalgia than with the actual quality of the films. This far out, they seem kind of, well...cheesey.

Eaxctly. They could have made Jurassic Park IV with both Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough (RIP) had they made it in the mid-late 00's, and it couldn't have been any worse than Jurassic World! This was at a time when Spielberg said that he wanted to explore more of the content from Crichton (RIP)'s novels, which would have been a much better idea than what they ended up with (which bore absolutely no resemblance to the novels).

I primarily like about Ep IV, V, VI the way it presents different contrasting locations, and how we see through the eyes of someone stranded on a remote and almost forgotten outpost gradually discovering the huge, colourful and magical universe around him along with its history. This sense of wonder is completely absent in I,II,III for reasons that are unavoidable given the subject matter (interstellar charades and big politics from the get-go) , but from the trailers it seems that it has a chance to be taken up again by VII by introducing a new generation which sees the remnants of the past battles, but is apparently again unaware of the Jedi history and all that magic sauce. I am afraid though, that the film will spend too much time making references to IV-VI and too little time being an independent story.

It's probably best to wait for the Special Edition:
