I swore off all lurking and posting in threads for films and series near and dear to my heart like Star Wars and LOTR but I'll make an exception to post my brief take on The Force Awakens. I won't post any spoilers. In short, I was blown away. I'm not going to rank this film in terms of quality (not sure I'd even rank it ahead of this year's Ex Machina if we're just speaking in terms of quality) but I'm not sure that I *could* give it a proper score/rating.
All I know was that I had a cinematic experience on par with the original Star...

It was JUST what I expected, this rehash is nothing but a glib facsimile.
If Star Wars was all I had access to as a child in terms of sci-fi I probably would become one of those crazy fanboys, but thankfully I had access to anime from very early on in my youth years that my mental balance is very stable.
Seriously, if you have watched Akira, you'd realize just how sophisticated anime is and it blows away anything Star Wars would have to offer.
A lot of people mention Ghost In The Shell, which has just enough of sexuality in the mix to draw in the western audience I suppose but I must say that Ghost In The Shell is not even in my top 10 anime, not even close, that's just how deep the world of anime is.
Some anime is so disturbingly mature like Fractale that I wish it would challenge the system and submit it as a Drama category in the Oscars just to bitchslap the snotty Academy.
It's not just the level of maturity and sophistication anime has, it's also quite original, entertaining, and visually fantastic. I would regard anime as the highest form of cinema art-form.
But hey, me preaching about anime won't do you any good, you gotta go out and see it for yourself just how much you are missing.
The recent one I would recommend to check out is Sword Art Online which is light and easy to get into anime for the first time yet appreciate it as much, but if you want the heavy stuff right off the line check out Guilty Crown in which the plot is so complex and twisted that you'll need extra oxygen pumped into your brain in order to comprehend everything, and if you want amazing visuals and a gripping drama that also has awesome mecha battles Aldnoah.Zero is the shit.
Seriously, if you know anime like I do, Star Wars looks like it's something for little kids.
Perfect casting really.
Admit it, they were adorable together.
>they congratulating each other after surviving the Falcon escape
>Finn putting his head on her head to see who's boarding them
>Rey running towards him when he gets captured
>Finn running towards her when she gets captured
They were bro-tier, senpai
Movie was still mediocre as fuck
Last episode of The Soup is on! Get in here!
>now conducting a talent search for two new lead roles
>both must be female of any ethnicity
Name a more aesthetically pleasing ship than the battlestar pegasus in all of sci-fi
Go ahead, I'll wait

Are you avin a laff?!
Who will she choose?
How did you guys feel about this movie? I honestly loved it.
Post cool things from the star wars EU
Fuck Star Wars. Will there ever be a live action W40K movie? Who would direct it? Which actors would you have play in it? Which stories would you draw from within the universe as the central plot? Which Xenos would you feature as the enemy? Would it be Pre or Post Horus Heresy?
Is it even doable /tv/?
It kind of ruins the tension when your spaceship can crash through and into anything and survive.
The asteroid field in ESB was tense because the Falcon could have gotten wiped out easily. But now we know it is invincible.
Wait, didn't JJ say that the reason he agreed to do TFA was because Kathleen Kennedy convinced him by asking 'who is Luke Skywalker really?'. He said he was so excited about the prospect of Lukes character in the new movie that he cancelled his plans to commit 2 years to Star Wars.
So...are you happy JJ? You're probably NOT happy now that you've exposed yourself as a hack who lied about Disneys heavy involvement in the film. Maybe you're kinda happy with the paycheque Bob Iger dropped in your back pocket as a result though?
Neckbeard contrarians BTFO
Yeah I wanted the same movie that I have watched 8 million times and know backwards and forwards. This isn't some bullshit franchise like Jurassic Park where you can get away with this rehash shit. This is Star Wars, it deserves better
Let's be honest about The Force Awakens.
If George Lucas directed this film it would be torn to shreds. Everyone would criticize the film for its complete lack of originality, refusal to introduce any new ideas.
People would point out the weak performances from Ridley + Fin, the clear lack of interest from Ford and the abusive advertisement of Luke - a character with no lines.
If Lucas directed this he would be labelled one of the worst directors ever for bringing in yet another 'superweapon is destoryed at it's one weakness plot', and...

This fihelm by Jay Jay Abrams is a deconstructed reality of a late Terrorist Era American Capitalist Society.
We must ask ourshelves NOT what is remade, BUT what part of ourselves has been lost. (COUGHS, Clears throat)
