AGSMA

An Acient Force has Awaken The Force Awakens just got released, and it's a good time to talk about the new trilogy.

 

 

Over-the-top Sith lightsabers, check

Slapstick droids, check

Millenium Falcon appearing out of nowhere, check

Everything else, check

 

I gotta say, though, if the movie's plot is focused on that Storm Trooper, it will be rather unique.

I also thought it looks impratical as well when I first saw it. J. J. Abrams obviously has an explanation for such ridiculous design, so I won't overreact and look at it as a mixture between uncanny and laughable.

In all honesty, J.J. Abrams isn't really a good filmmaker. Granted, I loved his Star Trek reboot, and even his produced movies (i.e. Cloverfield, Mission: Impossible IV, and Joy Ride), but I'm now worried about his take on Star Wars. I mean, sure it could be good, but I'm worried that the lens flare bullshit, which appear in most of his movies, would be in this one!

The lightsabers with blades on both sides make a much better job, in my opinion.

Of course the only other black person is the Star Wars universe is a Storm Trooper. What other race would you put in that position to be shot at?

 

But seriously, this trailer has captured my interest.

I think that Stormtrooper dude in the beginning is a defective, if you look at his expression. Either that or he's the last one around.

You mean like Darth Maul's? That doesn't stop lightsabers coming the way of your hand, and that happens all the time in Star Wars.

In fact, it happens so often, someone else had already made a lightsaber like this.

I'm pretty impressed by the trailer. I wonder if Billy Dee Williams Lando Calrissian will be in this.

And yeah I agree that cross-guard lightsaber look kinda stupid.

I was thinking so that someone couldn't slid a saber down and slice him...but there's metal between the laser and the saber...so it wouldn't do that. I don't know what to think about it either except that they're trying to make it look different.

 

X-Wings haven't changed in 40 years. Looks like the Falcon has changed a little though (new satellite dish!)

 

Kinda sounds like more Jedi/Sith could be "awakening", though I expect something of a counsel of jedi given it's been 40 years!

Yeah, the crossguard saber screams "different for the sake of different."  It'd probably look less stupid if the emitter for the crossguard wasn't sticking way out and defeating the purpose of the guard in the first place.

 

To be honest I was hoping the new villain wouldn't be a sith but instead was a bounty hunter/mandalorian (like that one rumor) or was some part of the Imperial remnant (I know Thrawn is a pipe dream at this point, but still).  IMO Star Wars got lame when every character had to be some kind of force-sensitive and everyone else was just fodder for them.

Without seeing all of his armor, it's difficult to tell if that character IS a Stormtrooper though. There are strange marks you can make out on the front. and I can't think of usual stormtroopers don't have...We also don't see his helmet...But that's a lot of assumptions.

 

Also that lightsaber looks like a Cross...so...yeah, hope he's not gonna be some religious crazed crusader (rofl)

I only like Empire Strikes Back and Revenge of the Sith. Also I hate JJ Abrams, so I will probably never see this movie.

What's with the dislike for J.J. Abrams? He might use a bit too much lens flare but that's a really petty complaint if he can tell an engaging story, which he's definitely been able to do. I don't know well he's going to pull a new Star Wars off, but I'm cautiously optimistic about it. I can't imagine it being worse than Episode I.

 

Come to think of it, I'm tired of people who defend George Lucas' control freak nature, saying that the Star Wars movies are "his." Well, he didn't write or direct V and VI, and you could make a good case that IV was a fluke. As far as I'm concerned, this new movie is just as legitimate as the prequels, or maybe more legitimate.

I'm more excited for the sequels that Abrams will not be involved in, but still, this doesn't look bad. The trailer gives us practically nothing to go on, so it's hard to judge yet. Putting some humanity in the storm troopers is a nice idea, too. Why are they still around, though? As well as the rebels? I figured the death of the Emperor and Vader and the destruction of the new Death Star all at the same time would have signaled the end of the empire.

And Sith aren't known for being the most practical people around. They like style.
