JJ Abrams.. I might just have to watch it now..
he directed Mission impossible 3, and mission impossible: ghost protocol..
so SW7 may actually be decent.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

Given the chance, I would take the life of everyone involved in the making of this film.
#43
I don't get all the negativity. Just because Lucas couldn't make another good trilogy apparently means nobody else can accomplish it either?

It's funny because you're dumb, ATrain.


Maybe so, but I'm certainly right in this case.

star wars is riddled with plot holes, it's the same tired morality play that has been exhausted since the year dot, the emotional development of some characters is either laughable or absent. Its moral message is very simplistic, as evidenced by a tiresome, childish model of moral dualism, leaving very little room for any sort of nuance.

I don't like Lost, I don't like Breaking Bad, and I don't like the idea of Star Wars being anything beyond three sweet movies. This thread sucks dick.

Oh look, it's JJ Abrams directing a new movie in a Star _____ franchise that should have been left well enough alone after the last 3 awful films.

I have a solution to all of your problems.


Don't watch it.


Holy shit, I'm a genius.


But anyway, as I said before when he was suggested as being possibly the director--Star Trek and Star Wars are on completely different planes. They couldn't be any more different from each other... I really hope that his involvement won't rob the soul out of the franchise like he did with Star Trek. Star Trek had its own feels in the TV shows and movies, but with the reboot that was so gone. I don't know if I can deal with it happening again--I just hope that there's still involvement in its development from some of the same people as the other films. At least get John Williams on board for the music, yeah?

I don't know what the hell ya'll are talking about... You're crazy.

Star trek was a great reboot. Breaking bad is one the best shows to date in the last 10 years.

But I don't want him to direct it, he should stick with Star Trek, he's very much a student of Steven Spielberg, you can see the very similar direction in Super 8 (Which was great). I would rather someone else take a shot at the Star wars movies.

Tbh I can assure you he wont do it. He's not dumb enough to take on both iconic series at the same time and would drop one to do the other. It's a lot harder to make a good star wars movie than one might think. Just ask Lucas...

Literally every criticism here could be applied to the Bible, yet I'd still hold it up as a very nice piece of literature.

John Williams' output in recent years has slowed considerably, but I hope he would score at least the first of these new Star Wars films.

Although as I said earlier, if Williams turned it down, Michael Giacchino should do it, as he has a very similar style to Williams (check out the score to John Carter for his attempt at old-school sci-fi). He's pretty much JJ Abrams' go-to guy for music, too.

Surely a student from Spielberg could bring SW back to the golden age? At least production wise.

Interesting. I like the choice.

I do too. At this point, it's more up to the writers than the director, I'd say. By which I mean, I thought JJ did good with "Star Trek" and will do good with "Episode VII".
#56
There's going to be so much lens flare it's going to hurt.

Lost was stupid, Breaking Bad is slightly passable.

I'm not looking forward to this.

The Prequels made the following (worldwide box office)

Phantom Menace: $983,588,295

Attack of the Clones: $640,912,840

Revenge of the Sith: $848,754,768

And that's just box office, no DVD sale, no merch. etc.

I know box office =/= quality but, It's Hollywood, anything that makes that kind of money will have more made. (Transformers for example... crap but people pay money to watch them..)

If it sells tickets, they will pump them out.

Pretty strange that attack of the clones only made 2/3s of phantom menace. It wasnt that much worse than the other two.

Thanks for the heads up. I had no idea Hollywood would do something like that.

Anyone other than Lucas in the director's seat is going to damage box office numbers big time. And if it turns out to be shitty anyway, then it's a double suck.

I love the original three, despised Phantom Menace (I will never forgive you, Jar-Jar), thought the other two were alright but would only watch once.

Mr Abrams needs to pull off something wonderful.

All of this.

Breaking bad and lost aren't even comparable. Lost is bad.


Bitch, I'mma whooop your ass.

EDIt: Ok, ok. I understand some people liked Lost's ending, some didn't, but you can't deny that it had some of the greatest character development in TV history, and if there is something that the last 3 movies in Star Wars needed, it was likeable characters.

Really?

"Empire Strikes Back" was directed by Irvin Kershner

and "Return of the Jedi" was directed by Richard Marquand

**** Lost and **** you Phillip

Also, I have to say that JJ's directing style certainly isn't bad, but I don't get the hype about it, either. I liked Star Trek, and do look forward to the one coming out this year, though. I just hope whoever does the next Star Wars movies does a good job.

The films are supposed to entertain you not convey some sort of messianic message on morality, plus who cares about plot holes if I'm entertained the whole time. It's okay to not like star wars but there is absolutely no point going into a star wars thread full of fans to say its garbage, it just makes you look like a massive dick.

Star Wars is fucking shite.

JJ Abrams will somehow make it worse.

That's the most pretentiously dickish post I've ever seen. And coming from the Pit, that says quite a lot.

Star Wars opening weekend (directed by Lucas) - Limited Opening Weekend: $1,554,475
Wide Opening Weekend: $6,806,951

The Empire Strikes Back (directed by Irvin Kershner) - Limited Opening Weekend: $4,910,483
Wide Opening Weekend: $10,840,307

Return of the Jedi (directed by Richard Marquand) - Opening Weekend: $23,019,618

Before you say anything, I didn't compare the numbers of the prequels because they happened many years later, so there's additional hype that factors in.
