    That last scene of the trailer has to be a massive misdirection. It doesn’t appear they are even in the same room.

    I’m actually starting to get nervous that it might not be great. Soulless. The trailers have been just ok. Whereas TFA trailers are some of the best ever. I hope I’m wrong. (and I mean that in the most “I hope the defense doesn’t suck!!!111” way)

    When Johnson said that he didn’t want anyone to watch the trailers and then after it came out backed away from the earlier comment I felt like he cut it in such a way that was meant to give any meaningful sign as to what is coming.

    Well it’s meant to not reveal anything and/or misdirect. The guy’s brilliant. The story will be good and clever – I just wonder if I will give a shit. The trailers do stink, IMO.

    I agree. With TFA, there was an sense of awe at what Abrams had pulled together. I wonder if part of the reason they went back to him for Episode 9 is that they were not only underwhelmed by Trevorrow but maybe Johnson’s 8 isn’t so hot either.

    Been meaning to mention if the Luke giving Rey the Bettis before the ’01 AFCCG treatment scene doesn’t scream take my money, all of it! to this crowd, nothing can.

    Reviews are great so far, completely forgot to buy tickets ahead of time and every single theater within 15 miles of me is sold out through sunday…..  I’ve never seen that before, ended up getting 4 on Monday at 8:30 next week.  So I’ll see you back in this thread then.

    94% on Rotten Tomatoes…

     

    “best since Empire”   not so sure on that one, but that’s a very good sign.

    Sticking with “not optimistic”

    Sticking with “not optimistic”

    You have captured my very same thoughts on every Star Wars movie since 1999. I went to “The Phantom Menace” during my honeymoon and the hype I had going in was shattered.  Every subsequent SW film has done little to dispense that even when they are good (TFA), merely ok (R1) or downright terrible (Ep 1-3).

    We haven’t done the BvS absolute take down on E3; “You CANNOT win Annakin! I have the HIGH ground” bullshit that it deserves.

    All of that being said; this is the first SW film that I am hyped to see based on everything I have read so far.

    Cautiously optimistic.

    The Red letter Media reviews for 1-3 are still the go-to.

    Nobody needs to explain in their own words why they suck, just direct people there.

    I’ve been pretty careful to not read beyond the headlines, but I don’t even see much complaining about the Porgs. :lol:

    There is nothing I have seen that gives me any hope. TFA has the best trailers I’ve ever seen. I read the same stuff about R1 from suck ups who want to be invited to the next Disney premiere, so I put zero stock in it.

    Like TFA, I have had the whole thing spoiled for me by the same prick person. Seeing it Sunday.  I do not think the average person is going to like it.

    Guy I grew up with lives with a girl who has connections in LA, and he’s on a big email chain with out mutual friends. Someone else asked him for spoilers and he replied all. He says he saw it last Saturday. His e-mail is from yesterday. I have no idea if he actually saw it (I know a lot of liars) or if he just heard second hand. He has been right before.

    I never said I wasn’t a cunt  :lol:

    The first sentence of the e-mail addressed deaths. Once I read that I read the whole thing.

    I should’ve phrased it differently. You’ll be surprised.  I won’t rephrase it and get myself into trouble.

    Back to the bigger point: Its going to stink.

    Everyone enjoy!

    RT has it at 93% positive, and just got my tickets  for a Saturday late afternoon show, so I’m hoping CAHF is wrong.

     

    Also…

     

    Wait, what?
