I just don't know who you are anymore.... how could you say such vile things?



But you are right about Ewoks > Jar Jars. Nothing has been worse so far than those things.

The day my dad brought home our first VCR, he had rented TESB to watch with it. I had already seen it, of course, but I couldn't have been more than 3 or 4 years old that day. I still remember it like it was yesterday, I was so excited.

The whole Hoth scenario will probably be hard to beat, and that is what made that movie for me. EP4 is second because it started the franchise, and was a great leap for the film industry. I liked ROTJ also, even though the whole Ewok thing was kinda too cutesy. I once nearly OD'd on my Albuterol inhaler while watching the Rancor scene, and hallucinated about the Rancor coming out of the screen, so that was awesome too.

I saw EP 1 three times in the theater. I liked it. I saw Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith in the theater also, and liked it as well. Episode 3 was the best of the prequels, and the last 30 or so minutes are probably some of the greatest scenes in the franchise.

Sure, I'm turned off by the cutesy-ness, youth-grab things like Jar Jar and little Anakin, but as a whole, there isn't another franchise of movies that even come close to the epicness of Star Wars.

The thing I appreciate the most is the expanded universe, in that no other fantasy thing out there (things like Tolkien's works) have expanded so much and are so detailed. The only thing I can forsee getting that close is what GRRM has going on with ASOIAF.

I look forward to 7, 8, 9 and what they do with them. I'm just hesitant to think they can get any better than their peak moments, but at the same time I don't think they can get much worse than the lows either.

Hardcore fans better be ready for some drastic changes. Knowing how JJ likes to reinvent things expect all kinds of changes.


JJ loves Star Wars and turned it down because he wants to see the movie as a fan not as a director..

Like myself, Abrahams was not a fan of Star Trek. That is why he reinvented it to a movie, with a story that would have drawn him in.

I like the Star Trek movie and I thought most of Cloverfield was pretty good minus annoying acting.

I was in like Kindergarten when Episode I came out and I really liked it. I saw Episode II in theaters and thought it had some cool moments but they were outweighed by the boring. I thought Episode III was all around cool and epic but there was really no way they could fug that one up. Looking back though, the prequels were mostly cheesy and took a drastic turn for the worst. While the original trilogy really felt like a big adventure in foreign places with great characters, the prequels felt like high end cartoons with bland characters and you could tell that 90% of it was in front of a green screen. (The same thing that happened to Indiana Jones)

I think JJ is a good choice for making the movies. I've enjoyed all of his films and he has a knack for spectacle and adventure If it's anything like the Star Trek reboot I'll probably love it.

Oh I read it... and although I agree with your assessment, my original statement stands. :)

After seeing Ep1, I thought two things:

1) Killing Darth Maul destroyed the one good thing it had going for it
2) I could have been watching The Matrix again

As long as Lucas is never allowed to write any dialogue ever again, it CANNOT be worse

JJ was the best choice and I'm super amped about the movie. While 1, 2 and 3 are ok for what they were. I'm hoping that 7 goes back to the epic journey feeling that the originals had.
