After how amazing the prequels were, why the hell not? ;)


edit: oh god. It's even worse than that. I had Stuff loaded in another tab:

Basically Disney are going to churn out a new film every other year.

They probably won't be any good, but as long as noone forces me to watch them (a la Clockwork Orange) I don't care what they churn out for profit

I was quite excited in 1999 when The Phantom Menace came out. Now I couldn't give a toss.

Pretty sure I won't be seeing The Adventures of Jar-Jar and Wicket or whatever the fuck these movies will be called, but I'm hardly the target market.

Fair point. I didn't see them, because they looked like crap. Even as a little kid I could tell that. And I loved shit like Clash of the Titans.

they can't do a worse job than Lucas has done over the past few years.

also, Disney hasn't done a terrible job overseeing Pixar and Marvel recent years so I wouldn't worry too much about them fucking up Star Wars - and heck, is there any credibility left in the series for them to do any worse than has being done with it lately?

Yeah, Han Solo as a white haired old grampa, haaaawt :?

I choose to just remember 'em how they were. I don't even know the names of two of the three 'prequels :? :'(

There's a wee bit of hope to be had in this...

Sci-fi director JJ Abrams will head up the seventh Star Wars film...

...It will be scripted by Oscar-winning [Toy Story] writer Michael Arndt...

These two points exactly. I'm pumped, I dig what JJ did for Star Trek and Super 8 showed him having a crack at Spielberg so I'm excited for his ver of Lucas.

Well, there seems to be at least one good thing that will come of the sale of the franchise: http://www.starwarsunderworld.com/2014/ ... tered.html

And I'm not too pessimistic about VII either. However, the sheer lack of satisfying remakes and sequels these days keeps my expectations low. It seems the order of the day is milk already-existing stories by creating multi-million dollar piles of shit that lack both originality and an awareness of what made the source material fucking cool in the first place. Members of the old cast being involved is pretty fucking exciting. Kasdan and Abrams working on this shit seems like they've got the right people for writing and direction. I've seen fuck all of anything Abrams has worked on, but I've heard the recent Star Trek films rule.

If they manage to avoid making it into a clusterfuck of SFX masturbation (even though Empire... and RotJ were showing off pretty shamelessly in their own time) and pull off some actual humor along the way then it'll be a far sight better than the prequels.

And for fuck's sake, give Nien Nunb an appearance.

I haven't seen any of the prequels, no wait I did see one but it sucked hard except for anakin getting his arms and legs burnt off although it was shit cos in the original mythos Vader had gradually become more robot than man

Yeah. Wrapping up of III was far too rushed and truncated, especially for arguably the most interesting section of the prequel trilogy.

'I Like It When You Die' is the fourth album by American grindcore band Anal Cunt. The album was originally titled You're Gay, and the album cover was going to contain a mirror, but this idea was later changed

of all the many plot holes EP 1-3 has created perhaps the most disturbing of all is that in EP 3 Anakin/vader is revealed as a multiple child murderer
yet in the end of return of the jedi all that seems to be forgiven........how could that ever be forgiven

I just watched New Hope for the first time in 10+ years with the young fella and flatmate who had somehow managed to go 35 years without seeing it. Big question raised was how the fuck they made a second one in the first place? It rightly deserves to be a cult film but no more than that. People raise these films up on a pedestal that they don't deserve. Empire is blatantly the best though so we will see how that goes.

After the prequals and the general shitness of modern movies I'm not really convinced by the idea of 7. Though the image with the downed Star Destroyer is pretty choice. I will likely go see it though.

Just watched the trailers: why the fuck are they still flying around in shitty old X Wings and stuff? If they won and destroyed the empire don't they have money to get real ships? Also I thought all the storm troopers were Temuera Morrison so what is the black bloke up to? And wouldn't the storm troopers be republic property now?

That downed Star Destroyer had me completely sold, fuck I can't wait for this. Also that chrome stormtrooper looks like a badass.

Having practical effects again is so good, I really want to buy a BB-8!
