“The Force Awakes” Teaser
It may well be that I do go to see this, and I do enjoy it. But the stench of JJ Abrams, and cutesy robots a la Jar Jar Yippee is strong with this one! See, the magic about R2D2 was not that he was Wall-E, but that he was totally bad ass and cool looking, for example. LMAO at the trailer.
EDIT: I have changed the title because I neither want to be a hater, nor do I want to be trollin’. I don’t hold the original trilogy up as the best sci fi ever, so I am not still trying to “protect” that. I was happy when Disney acquired the IP. I think there is lots of potential. I just don’t trust Abrams, with his pull-stuff-out-of-my-ass, red herrings writing. I don’t care whether or not they have original cast, or original vehicles, planets, etc. The universe is large enough to support a completely new adventure in the Force, and it is also fun to go back and see our old friends. What I am hoping for, is for someone to understand what it is that made the first two Star Wars movies so entertaining: the mystery, adventure, technology, exploration, politics, religion, war, with a tiny dash of comedy.
