The prequels were a disaster; first, it launched Natalie Portman into stardom (pretentious twit that she is) and it was pretty much all graphics and green screen. As for technology, ti was way too advanced for the time. During the real trilogy, the technology was very basic and solid but in the prequels, insanely advanced. Jar Jar destroyed it and it was all based on marketing to the kiddies. All around, a major disappointment. Cool fashions though.

My son and I watched the first, original, Star Wars last night and it was fantastic.  I haven't seen it since I saw it in the theater.  The reviews on the Force Awakens are phenomenal so this could be, they say, the biggest selling/viewing movie of all time.  Time will tell.

^ No, it won't ! The film was released yesterday in France (as in other countries in Europe it seems). Like everywhere else, the French reviews on official medias are rapture. Except they were forbidden to disclose any details of the plot, not to wreck the fans' surprise. Do you know why ?

Because it is roughly a 'Copy-Paste' of Episode IV ! I didn't see the movie, but read reviews by anonymous people. The moment when it is revealed who is hiding behind Kylo Ren's mask is ludicrous : everyone (adult) laughed in the theaters (at the expense of the writers, not Kylo Ren !). The soundtrack is fade. In short, it is just a movie aimed at kids and teens, with all the flaws it sounds. It is up to the extent fans regret the prelogy and consider it a masterpiece !

And @YooperModerator, don't rely on the (official) reviews ! They work exactly the same as the articles on the BRF, so you know what it means !

^Well, thanks for the letdown.  Allow me to rephrase that.  It will be the biggest box office hit of all time.  You can't get tickets here for DAYS. 

For the true fans and I've read the Trekkie sites, they love it and that's cool.  Can't please everybody.  Hey, the critics and public gushed and loved Birdman and it stands, for me, as the worst movie I've ever suffered through.  I don't drink very often but in California they serve drinks at the theaters and this time? I drank.  My friend fell asleep 20 minutes in and id have walked out and demanded my money back but we had one person who loved it.  We don't discuss it.  MST3000 should watch it.

^ I'm sorry if I hurt you. The thing is, Disney implemented a total plan of propaganda. To speak about Internet articles, well: the medias can't say anything about the plot, lately Disney gave them the idea of publishing articles about "How to avoid spoilers".  It was in Disney's interest not to reveal anything the script because... well... from the start it is obvious they copied Episode IV.

I don't know what will become of Star Wars in the Box Office. What is sure is reviews about the plot already hit IMDB. CBO said today Star Wars made the 4th best start ever in France... except that James Bond's Spectre did better. Apparently Disney doesn't want to release the figures.

Again I'm sorry if I disclosed these facts about the scenarios, but I highly suspect Star Wars' officials reviews were bribed, whether in France or in the USA.

^A Spoiler Alert woulda been helpful because I've really avoided all hints at the plot and only read trusted sites but it's ok.  Somehow I'll live through it. 

My sons are huge fans so it's always been a standard in our home and will make a fun evening going to it at a real grown up theater with one of my boys who's coming with me to CA for NYE.  So...Fun!  Incidentally, in light of the recent terror attack in California, most theaters and huge events are being manned by the Special Ops and a friend of mine's husband is in the SO so he's going to be guarding the first night dressed in a custom-made Storm Trooper get-up.  Only in California...

^ I'm truly sorry. I was just warning you not to have too high  expectations because lots of fans seem to be disappointed. But it is a film fit for young people indeed, I think kids will excited by the new movie.

^Well, so far, everybody I know who's seen it here just loved it and they aren't kids.  Not little ones, anyway.  It's a hit.  I'm looking forward to it.  Sorry it didn't pan out for you.

I'm not dissapointed in the movie. Yes I also noticed that a lot of events were from A New Hope, though I think it is a good way to introduce to the new story line. It isn't like ESB or RotJ, but it does have the Star Wars feel. I'm already looking forward to the next one. Hopefully I will get to see a few things of it when I attend Star Wars Celebrations in London.
