I have to say the more i watch the trailer the most i like it...

a bit too many lens flares at the start.... but i kinda like it overall..

now to try to destroy hipe and remain pesimistic..  because im beginning to think this might actually work ...and i had to many disapointments allready for a long time


. I don't believe we have seen Lupita Nyong'o's character yet, either.


We have...

Why don't you stop watching and analysing the trailers, and save yourself for the film itself?  smile

I think the lack of Luke is obvious: they want to make his reveal a big deal in the movie.

How possible do you think it is that JJ Abrams is going to actually make Luke turn out to be the advertised big bad in disguise in an attempt to make an iconic twist for the new trilogy?

That would be a horrible, horrible idea. 90% of the plot in the original trilogy is about Luke resisting the dark side. Suddenly making him the villain because reasons wouldn't be the smartest thing.

I agree. But we're talking about the same guy who actually thought switching the roles of Kirk and Spock from Wrath of Kahn in the emotional climax of Into Darkness was clever.

I can totally see the studio going "No that's a horrible idea" and then Abrams going over their heads and presenting the idea to Lucas who went "YES AWESOME" and then convinced the studio to let him do it. tongue

If he does turn out to be the Bad Guy, there will surely be some slowly-revealed justification, e.g. he's doing it for the greater good, or he's sacrificing his soul to save someone he loves, etc.

Absolutely. It could be done very well. But if that is the case and they intend for it to be a twist, they're doing a horrible job of not making it super easy to guess.

On the other hand, if leaving him out of the advertising is a deliberate attempt to get people to guess that he's the bad guy, only to have a huge reveal that he's simply been in exile or something, then....that's genius.

Lucky you.. in 2 hours all tickets for the 18 were gone.. only 3D passes were avalaible and i refused as i dont want to see this movie first in 3D (dark, blurry and with 3D glasses on top of my regular glasses) so we had to go for the 19th

I'll probably wait a few days before seeing it, and then go at an unpopular time (like 10 AM-ish).

My hype can wait a bit longer.

I was going to see Jurassic World after the crowds died down, but it slipped my mind (it doesn't take much...) and will be getting it on blu-ray.  It's entirely possible that I'll do the same for Force Awakens.  Unless most everyone here raves about it, in which case I'll likely go UrL's route and see it some weekday morning.

Saw a trailer during a commercial break on my boring regional news channel, of all places.  Fortunately I managed to avert my eyes and avoid assimilating spoilers.



J J Abrams was asked recently which of the many rumours and fan theories about Force Awakens was his favourite...

[JJ] I’m sure there are some I don’t know, but the one I heard that I think is so great is that Jar-Jar is a Sith...

Enjoy, guys!  If the crowds have thinned a tiny bit after Christmas I'll try to see it on the 29th or 30th.  Otherwise I'll just bide my time... <insert image of Palpatine steepling his hands, with a slightly malevolent smile>

P.S. I will literally be wearing earplugs in the theatre line, to avoid spoilers :)

Hurr, when you posted this I'd not long gotten back from seeing it.

Wow, what an ending! Who would've thought that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker's father!

But yeah I liked it and thought it was fun and stuff. There, spoiler-free review!

Well that was pretty fucking awesome.
If I had to rank the movies from best to worse it would be
5,4,7,3,6,2, The Clone Wars Movie and 1

My only complaints for The Force Awakens is minor nitpicks that people probably don't care about


8/10.

We are talking about Star Wars. Belief me, there are no "minor nitpicks that people probably don't care about". Even the slightest details can cause hordes of mom-basment dwelling sci fi freaks rush into the fray, shouting their infamous battle-cry "NERDRAGE!!!"

Anyway, I am a huge fan of the classic trilogy, and the new movie unfortunately did not do it for me at all...frown

Enjoyed the film lots, was a fan of Kylo Ren before going in but I appreciate him even more after seeing the film.

Some thoughts (spoilery as fuck, obviously):


Lots of questions are brought up by the end of the film, but I think we needed a lot more questions answering about the events that occurred in the 30 years after ROTJ before we start to build up this fresh universe.

Saw it this afternoon and really liked it, especially the acting from the new cast members. Only minor nitpick was the obvious reusing of a certain item from the ot and the cgi characters kind of stuck out like a sore thumb

I also enjoyed it.

The new characters are excellent and I feel like this movie did a great job of "passing down the torch" so they won't have to rely on the fan favourites in the future.

One other thing I'll give VII credit for is that it was very tightly paced. There was barely a dull moment and it was interesting the entire way through. No trade negotiations whatsoever! big grin

Even the original trilogy suffers from padding. The beginning of A New Hope drags on forever before Luke meets Obi Wan. And Return of the Jedi is almost 2/3rds material not related to the main plot. The Empire Strikes Back is the only well-paced of those three.

Perhaps it's a generational thing.  Seeing A New Hope during opening week, it certainly didn't seem to drag on in the least.  It was a new and very different sort of sci-fi film to us and it took a while to acclimate to its setting.  The pacing at the beginning reinforced the believability of Luke wanting to get the hell away from that farm in the middle of nowhere and out from under the control of his aunt and uncle but it didn't seem unduly slow.

The machinery looked well-used, and the sets looked like they were shot on location and it really drew the audience in.  The John Williams score helped a lot, too.  The only real jarring exception that I recall was the stupid pyrotechnic effect on the first R2 unit.
