    I am not expecting anything mind blowing, but VII was the best star wars since VI, and better than the prequels and nuTrek.

    7 was really bad on a lot of levels. I suppose that from a writing and filmmaking perspective it was better than all of the prequels, but I'd say that overall episode 3 is above it. That's not to say that episode 3 is particularly good, just that 7 was bad. For all of their autism, at least the prequels had a metric shitton of IDEAS and new designs. Old George really did put his heart into them, just turns out that he really cannot craft a movie to save his life.

    7 on the other hand was clearly carefully guided by Disney psychologists. There was nothing new here. All of the ships, music, characters, etc - were just reused/recycled from the prior films. The only character I liked was Finn tbqh. Kylo has potential to grow into an interesting villain, but what we saw in 7 was questionable at best.

    I can't imagine 8 being worse than 7. All they have to do is make Rey not a mary-sue, and actually introduce some original ideas (and use less quick-cuts) and it'll automatically be better than that shitheap.

    They have to knock Rey down a peg at some point, if only to give the remaining films some form of tension. It'd be hard to maintain any tension or drama when the protagonist is perfect in every way and utterly humiliates anyone who dares try to fight her, and the villains are CGI puppet monsters and two /r9k/ users. Either Kylo Ren will go through some villainous character development and utterly school Rey in a duel at the finale, or they'll introduce another villain who is capable of beating her with ease.

    Haven't seen it. I can wait till it comes on cable and I'm too bored to do anything else to watch it. Interstellar has been on cable for a while now and I still haven't gotten around to seeing it.

    But the more I hear about it the less I want to sit through even 5 minutes of another franchise rape.

    Can anyone name 1 movie JJ Abrams didn't screw up?

    Female Vader?

    when i read casting the only major role was for a female and seemingly another semi-major role went... to a female.

    Why not. Hillary won't be doing much next year and like Max Shrek very little makeup will be necessary to transform that cunt into an even more hideous version of herself.

    Could work.

    Can you provide link to the casting list you've read (unless it was just the bogus that's on IMDB)? I'm curious...

    I just did an search for "casting" about the movie some weeks ago. It was some British agency that presented some openings for the movie. It said "one major female role". Then someone in the forum gavelinks to a female that had been casted since before, which implies two new females.

    This is why I'm excited for this movie. Watching Looper at the cinema was a breath of fresh air and an incredible experience, I only wish I had gone in blind without seeing the trailer and just let myself be surprised by the movie (which is what I've been doing since).

    Episode 7 was very.. OK. I hope that being free from the constraints of reintroducing the franchise will make the studio let them actually tell an original story again.

    Not only Looper, but he did Brick which is a great movie too. And some of the best Breaking Bad episodes :smug:

    On the other hand, this is Disney. They have a tendency to shit in the mouth of directors/writers if they don't follow the formula given, just ask plenty of MCU guys.

    I agree, it was a lot better than shit.
    I went in blind (well I did not remove it from inventory).

    And after watching these clips I want to watch it again, lol.

    Okay, okay, actually I should watch Brick first.


    Well, even if the story is determined by the upper-levels, Johnson's gonna be directing and writing it his own way, which will make it... well better than Abrams' style. That's really why I presented those clips, to show how scenes would end up with Johnson as director/writer. Not so much about the overall plot, which is probably set in stone already.

    Also I need to actually stop being lazy and watch the rest of Breaking Bad.
