As some of you may know, star was: force awakens trailer was released today. You may also know, I am a huge fan of wars and am in the crowd of thinking JJ Abrams is a hack. I have tried to avoid wars news, buts it’s hard for me not to be up to date on it. And while is dislike JJ I have been a bit reserved in on all the hype/judgment sounding it. With all these factors I have been waiting for this trailer to decide my hype factor for it. So with it here and with all my rage for JJ, nostalgia ruining Hollywood, hype machine, here’s my gut reaction.
Loved it! Well I should say pleasantly surprised, but then again my expectation bar was well in check. After the prequels and trek reboot my bar was set really really low. Even though it’s only a 1~ clip, you can still tell it’s going to be better than those. That and money was spent making sure things will not get f-d up. I still think JJ’s is not that "great" but he is a lot better than Lucas (who becomes a one man green screen machine). some shots really gave me the shivers so that's something working for it.(X-wings over lake OMFG) I was preparing for some crushing blow and in no way a minute long clip going to make me explode and expert excellence now, but I am pretty impressed with the tone and special effects. Though it kind of has the JJ Abrams "nostalgia "tm thing going on. My only other complaints are everything still seems a bit too shiny to me. I was really hoping for more grit like the originals.. But I guess I just have to wait and see...
Anywho, what did you guys think? Do you care about the new wars or wars in general? Is JJ still a hack or finally living up to his own hype?
he really has been incredibly lucky in his carer that's for sure. HATE into crapness, hopefully a lot more people watching what hes doing on this one.
no way will he get in tho, they are going to cut soooooo many extended universe ties.
more of a trek fan myself but did love wars growing up. being a wars or trek fan over the years has been hard. so many cash grabs and milking us. the blu release of wars is such a shame. i still use my vhs boxed sets to enjoy my original trilogy.
your right, but in that one min, i went from very pessimistic to actually being pretty excited. from the looks its gotta be better than 1-3,right? right.......
lol yea that seems the majority really does not like it, i am ok with it but its still a bit odd to me.
yea i went from a nope to opening night(maybe).
Because I saw it and all I could think was frell me, it's worse than I thought.
still not sold,still think JJs a hack, but man maybe nostalgia and the hope that it can be better than the prequels impressed me.
The very first thing you see is a guy in clone armor who is obviously not Jango Fett, so I've got to wonder what's up with that, then it went all to hell in a series of jarring flashes.
This will not end well, but there will be a lot of morons screaming how fucking AWESOME it is...kill me now.
yea was wondering about the trooper, unless its a hint that JJ is doing away with clones or gonna do a trek like continuity wipe...
if its got strong acting and a better story than 1-3 then ill be happy. that and hopefully they replace JJ for the "empire" of this new run.
I commented on a piece of art inspired by the trailer, and some pud questioned my swordsmanship.
This is going to go EXACTLY like what JJ did to my beloved Star Trek, and I'm not going to go there again.
It's enough to make a bear want to hang himself with his own Dr. Who scarf.
I'm of mixed opinions over the Sith lightsabre, however. On one hand, I love it, as I'm a practitioner of the hand-and-a-half sword and therefore have developed great appreciation for the cross guard, so seeing a lightsabre with a cross guard just screamed WANT to me. That always bothered me about the original lightsabre design, actually, because in many of the duels I saw openings where it would have been so simple to slide the sabre down the opponents and disable their wielding hand. A cross guard prevents that in pretty much all of those openings I saw. My gripe with the bastard lightsabre, however, is I'm not sure how they've rigged it to prevent grievously injuring the wielder. As anyone who has handled a cross-guarded sword would know, the hand frequently comes into contact with the guard right at the grip. It appears they've made it so that the grip actually extends into the cross guard before the energy portion of the guard becomes an issue, but it would still be ridiculously easy to injure one's self with this blade design if not careful (as if you should ever not be careful with a lightsabre).
All that said, though, I still love the sith sabre. AND I'M SOOOOOOOO EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE! I missed the X-wing. Back when I was a kid, the X-wing made me want to be a pilot. I never did pursue that dream, but it still lives in me.
hummm yea i get your reasoning and it still kinda bothers me(and you bring up some good points too) why does every sith HAVE to have a custom saber of sorts just seems odd and like a checklist somewhere.
man i went from its totally gonna suck, don't expect anything to have some real hope for this outing. i dont wantta get to hyped as i am not sure i could handle a repeat of episode 1.......
Super excited for more millennium falcon!!!!!!
One thing i will give JJ credit for, he sure know how to hype.
i know some like/love the prequels, but there bad, in just sooooo many ways. so the bar is set pretty low, but even then i had my doubts. with this 88 sec now i am hoping for ROTJ level if not better. expectations have been raised XD
I have IV, V and VI on video cassette in original form(no new CGI/scenes). Can't seem to find them on DVD, I hope someday Disney will release the originals as they were in the theatres.
i have the same sets(three copy's vhs) and know exactly your place.i have held off on buying any blu or even dvds of wars because of that reason(tho there is a non-remastered dvd series kicking around, just gotta hunt and have $$$)
sooner or later Disney WILL, they got to and they LOVE selling stuff so.... never really understood why they didn't (other than lucas was a weirdo) and even now it just seems like why not?
Only thing I liked were those droids that were always being destroyed.
I'm one of those who adored the NuTrek and I suspect I'll like this Star Wars flick - although we'll have to wait a whole year for it.
As per tradition, I'll allow myself to watch the teaser, and then bar myself from any and all internet chatter, speculation, leakage and trailers.
I don't like to be spoiled you see.
This teaser looks brilliant.
i get that and i probably should avoid news but will not be able to now...
yea it really did!
You listen to Nofx?!?!??! AWESOME!!!
yea i am bit hyped now. wasnet befor but damn, those x-wings...SQUEAL!
yea i do,love nofx and proper punk/punk rock.
over the summer me and the wife went to a badass pennywise,bad religion,vandals and offspring concert(don't care too much for offspring but they were alright live) it was the first time any of those bands have played in Vermont, so it was extra awesome.
