    Re: Star Wars Episode VII Cast Announced

    I just don't think I'll get excited about this until I actually end up in movie theater seat and am having fun watching what is on screen. The combination of the prequels and Abrams last Trek movie left me cold.

    I hope people have fun with this rather than take it seriously like with I-III.

    Re: Star Wars Episode VII Cast Announced

    I'll reserve hope or despair until I see a trailer. Part of what gives me at least a little optimism is the fact that George is only staying involved in a "limited advisory" capacity. Plenty of other talented, creative people have done great things with the Star Wars license. Then again, J.J. tends to leave a lot of damage in his wake.

    I'm far more excited about the new Battlefront 3 game and the new Rebels show by the same crew that did The Clone Wars.

    The first movie was fun, but Into Darkness sucked and some of the specific ways in which it sucked make me think him running Star Wars will be problematic

    Abrams wrote the ******* for the first 2 with the same person who wrote Empire and Jedi. Which is better than the monkeys Lucas hired to write 1-3.

    Actual monkeys would have written Shakespeare compared to what Lucas slinged at us.

    Re: Star Wars Episode VII Cast Announced

    Man, I just don't have high hopes. Hard for me to watch the original 3 movies anymore. That is how bad the "new" three were. Not just dialogue and characters. They had major flaws in storyline that impacts IV, V, and VI.

    Re: Star Wars Episode VII Cast Announced

    Example... In V, Leia tells Luke she remembers glimpses or snapshots of her mother. Turns out, she must be a savant to have memories of when she was 5 minutes old, which is when Lucas kills off Padme in III.
