If Bothans aren't dying, I don't want to know about it.

The Force Awakens was crap. Almost but not quite entirely pure crap.

Rogue One was good.

I've got my opening night ticket for the 14th. Don't f*cking disappoint me.

Patience. It's coming.

It's just not rewatchable.

I'm sure all of us have seen the original trilogy so many times we can quote it from memory. I've even seen the prequel trilogy at least a dozen times, usually when I'm bored and there's nothing else to watch. And while those movies are objectively awful, they're still rewatchable because there's enough interesting things going on in them. Just don't pay too much attention to the plot.

I've seen TFA exactly twice: Once in theatres and once at home. I just don't have the compulsion to watch it again. It's just not an interesting story.

I have seen Rogue One about half a dozen times. I like it very much and don't mind watching it again -- I sometimes pick up things I didn't notice the previous time. And the interplay between the characters is good (especially the droid).

But TFA is such a stale movie, with a boring plot, dull characters and mundane dialogue. I'm just not that interested in what happens to them in this new flick and for the first time probably won't see it in theatres. I may catch it when it comes out on TV.

But the thought of a brand new trilogy of completely different plots, characters and settings with no connection to the Skywalker family sounds awesome! I would love to see that. Star Wars is an entire galaxy of stories so it would be fun to show other aspects of that galactic civilization.

It better have a farking Death Star in it or else I'm boycotting the POS film.

I'm thinking it might have several....

And the good guys will have exactly enough time to take the SSD's out of mothballs and tear them apart in a straight up fight.

Luke is the bad guy.

Snoke?  Don't make me laugh.  A "snoek" is a type of herring.

RED HERRING.

SNeaky

Wake up sheeple.

Faaaaaak you.

Meh. It's no Star Trek but it's alright.

The behind the scenes video on that page is well worth watching, if only for that perfect "clonk" sound.

I love the idea of a trilogy detached from what we've already seen, there's a ton of potential in the setting, I'm looking forwards to seeing what they do.

Someone said TFA was like a Star Wars-themed birthday party. The trouble for me was that from an early age as a subscriber to Bantha Tracks, we learned that there is a delicate line separating Star Wars from Spaceballs. TFA had some nice moments but it crossed that line.

I've often said that it felt more like a grown man (JJ Abrams) playing Star Wars with his life-sized Kenner figurines.

Zombo.com. Now that's a name I've not heard in long time.

spoiler alert: if you thought TFA was crap, you'll be disappointed, and it won't be the movie's fault

"... until another decade has passed, then we'll re-re-re-release it with "bonus material" to get more money."

JJ is pretty notorious to massage old scripts into his 'idea'.  You could say that the reboot first star trek he directed was a new hope as well, and it fits.

LaChanz: Meh. It's no Star Trek but it's alright.


Ah!  I see we have the first shot in the Star Trek Wars --

On the other hand, I'll be driving across the country next week, coincidentally arriving at the destination just in time for a premier:  That's right -- a Star Wars Trek!

OT:  Looking forward to it.  I liked TFA because it was the cheesy, rip-off story that EpIV was, and the winking, shallow reset the world needed.  I was disappointed by R1, as I was promised a dark, gritty thriller in the Star Wars universe, and it was a giant baby-split that wasn't good at either, but I can't dislike it.  But, like ~everybody~ else, I remain irrationally optimistic! : )

You can do anything.  Anything at all.

The only limit is your imagination.

Star Wars til you're dead.

Sine Disney took over, I've decided I get to decide what is canon and what isn't in my own mind. And in my mind, Disney Star Wars is just another expanded universe: shiatty fan fiction, and not canon. If you look at it that way going in, it can be pretty enjoyable. For me, it's the only way.

/Kyle Katarn really stole the Death Star plans. Rogue One is just a fairy tale people tell in my Star Wars universe.
//Not that Rogue One was bad.
///TFA was.

Chemlight Battery: shiatty fan fiction


This describes TFA perfectly.

I'm just glad it won't be Old Republic. Do something else. No Thrawn (which would have been great in the 90s, but now that Harrison's character is dead, and Carrie Fisher is dead, how do you adapt the Thrawn trilogy when half the cast is not around?) 

And let's end with the super weapons before we get a Death Solar system, and a Death Galaxy...

It's kinda telegraphed Rey will lose Lukes lightsaber and at the beginning of ep. 9, she will have constructed herself a blue-double bladed saber.
