I am a Star Wars fan, and I thought the last trilogy sucked! Does that offend you too?


Pissed off, not offended.

Episode one, also pissed me off but Jar-Jar was just offensive.


I just think you are being a little bit emotional over this. That's all. Trust me! For a long while I envisioned "Heaven" as being a place I could fly around in an X-Wing fighter shooting up evil!
Yea! That was my vision of heaven!

The story over the guy that was dying though, that did bring a few tears when I heard that they were going to give him an early viewing!


lol you know the same thing happened with the first prequel where a guys dieing wish was to see it. Hes probably somewhere on the other side still pissed off.

Meh.

The verbal vomit reflects more about themselves than it does the rest of us.

You know guys you OG fans are too hard on the prequels. I was born in 85 so I did not even start watching u til a couple decades after release, and it did not grab my attention as a child. I was a teen going into adulthood when the prequels released, and they did grab my attention a bit, to the point I actually decided to give the original release a respectful viewing and actually got into it. The prequels got a new generation into the originals, which has helped pave the way for these new sequels.

I was always more of a star trek fan though, as my mind even from a young age was always more logic oriented than emotional. Part of the reason I enjoyed star trek better, and frankly still lean more on it. TNG's picard and riker ran the tightest ship and most disciplined crew IMO that most accuratley portrayed a respect to chain of command and military discipline.

Star wars has always to me just been space cowboys playing shoot em up with a very dramatic emotional appeal. I still find it entertaining of course, but just see it as less real in the sense of battle doctrine and chain of command structures


blasphemy, Heresy, Starwars heathen I shall cast your remarks out. Shame on you sir, Shame lol

Jedi knight order has chain of command and they had clones who followed orders without question or fear of death. Trek troops are probably the worst trained soldiers ever.

Ehh... New SW looks like garbage. Look I have nothing against black actors but it's kind of obvious Boyega was only cast for "diversity" reasons and that type of crap really should have no place in a fantasy movie. He's a stormtrooper which means he's a clone which means he should look like Jango Fett. So right there, they broke the continuity of the series.

Oh and it's obvious he's going to hook up with the white girl, again a liberal PC statement done for shock effect to try to break societal taboo once and for all. Again, should have no place in a movie.

This should be a movie not a political statement.




Bollocks

Utter racist bollocks


O and not all storm troopers were clones, by episode IV most were human recruits as the old clones from the clone wars had started dying off.

I won't lose any sleep knowing these people laughed at Star Wars, vague people should never be famous, or "wannabe" famous as they are.

Is this what Fox news hopes to draw in the young go hards with?

Red eye? lol...

Almost as bad as that MSNBC lady that keeps a hologram of a service droid on her desk to remind her what good service is.

Bollocks!

After the end of the Cone wars the Empire started recruiting non-clone humans into its ranks its well established in the EU.

OOOOOOOOhhh Black storm trooper gonna marry your daughter hon solo lol ! Hon solo:What?? GET OFF OF MY PLANE!!

but seriously come on the clones died in masses, they would be like 60 if they aged normal which they age at in accelerated rate lol its in the movie watch. The clones had been made for one purpose over 30 years ago and the emperor is dead who created them! this = no clones

#2 "to try to break societal taboo once and for all." What year is this 1950 lol nobody cares if the black dude gets the white girl hell its all you see on reality tv. Ice tea and coco , Kim Kardashian and Kanye west, Literally every black athletes wife!

#3 yes its PC bull crap JJ even stated star wars needed more color! But he didn't cast one of the wu tang clan members he cast a british black man which is the closest thing to a white man as your going to get as far as black man go.

Eh..Star Wars is for children Star Trek is for adults!

The original was pretty good but the rest just horrible plus it came off like some bible story.

Fox News is pissing a lot of critical, intelligent people lately because the network is not immune with intelligence. The bible thumping network called FOX NEWS is housed full of bullsh*t. The lovers of Fox news, is a bunch of dead zombies.

Meh...

I watched about half of that, and quit, because the women there admit they have no interest in the movies. Why are they discussing something for which they have no interest?? Panels of that sort aren't anything but filler, anyway.

As for the hype, well...don't be mad, but as a fan, someone who watched since the original, I am sick to death of hearing about it! My older son is a mega-fan, and Star Wars is a daily topic. Too much!!! I don't want t hear how Disney did this and that to tick off the fans. I want to know the movie is coming, and maybe, if people don't make me sick of it before it's here, see it. Maybe. Every single day, everywhere you look online, is too much. It's like a DJ that would play a good song so much people gt sick of it.

What some panel says, though, I couldn't care less. Fan reviews are far more accurate.

It's Fox news. They're smug and full of themselves. It's no surprise they would spend better than 6 minutes poking fun at SW fans. Must have been a slow news hour. I stay away from FoxCnnMsnbc. They're all the same channel with different hosts.
