It actually looks too real to me, like it’s not fantasy enough…

Will need to see more…

It’s an okay trailer. Can’t be worst than the prequels. I just hope, they won’t go for too much realism and some zen philosophy would also be nice (Yoda training scenes are in Empire Strikes Back are awesome), not just popcorn action.

Jurassic world and Star Wars are probably the two films I’m looking forward to the most next year.

It’s probably the best direction they could take for the Jurassic Park series as they needed a reboot of a sort to freshen it up. I’m not to sure why some people are so bothered about the “new” dinosaur mind. I mean, none of the dinosaurs have been accurate in the series and they even say they fill in the blank parts of the DNA structure. In JP3 they say it again, Ingen never created real dinosaurs.

The trailer started strong, but there was some hammy bits in it the further it went on. Though, most of the CGI clearly wasn’t finished (that’s normal in trailers mind) and from what I’ve heard, some of the scenes aren’t in the film, so…

As for Star Wars, I’d be very shocked if this turns out worse then the last 3 films. That would be quite an accomplishment and worthy of an award in its own depressing way. J.J adams is good at making entertaining films, but 10 minutes after watching them, you start to think about the main plot and see plot holes - though, despite all the praise they receive, the orginals were littered with bad writing etc too.

Having said that, that trailer has got me more interested in Star Wars then I have been for a long time.

George Lucas has already released a directors cut of the teaser trailer.

Yeah, I agree that the originals suffered from bad writing, but still it wasn’t that bad like in the prequels. Revenge of the Sith was an okay movie, but that was about it. Can’t decide which one of two, Attack of the Clones or the Phantom Menace is worst. Probably the second one.

I agree. The prequels were far worse.

Which was worse though? Hmm…that is a tough one Smile

I’ll go with Menace. Beyond finding Anakin, the film is completely pointless and nonsense, Lloyd was awful (could blame “1 take Lucas” for that mind as even known actors were bad) and how this one film left everyone deflated on Star Wars from then on.

Revenge of the sith was…so so. The damage was done by then.

Phantom Menace sucked more. And it’s not even close, imo.


The best order to view the films is something called “The Machete Order”: Episode IV-V-II-III-VI. Yes, skip I.
Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith (thus Anakin’s path to the Dark Side) work well as the backstory of how Darth Vader became Darth Vader, within the framework of Luke’s journey.
In fact, II and III serve to reinforce episode VI. If you watch the original trilogy, then there’s no doubt that Luke is going to stay Light. If you just watched his father’s decline, and then see Luke arrogantly bust into Jabba the Hutt’s place to free Han, then suddenly the lure of the Dark Side becomes a possibility, making the final confrontation stronger.

Skipping Phantom Menace doesn’t confuse people with the age gap between Anakin and Padme, doesn’t degrade the Force as a sickness (midichlorians, really?), and you won’t remember Jar-Jar Binks. Tongue


Funny thing, though. The best two Star Wars films out of six are the two NOT directed by Lucas.

I have more confidence in Disney and J.J. Abrams than in Lucas…

I think everyone in the galaxy agrees with that last statement Smile

I’m not so sure on the “best two films” weren’t directed by Lucas though. A New Hope and Empire were good, but Return of the Jedi was were saw a huge drop in my opinion. I mean, that “rescue” plan was simply terrible. After that, the middle of the film suffers from pacing issues, then we have the Ewoks that were purely written in for commercial reasons as it was suppose to be Chewbacca’s home planet originally.

Yeah, VI dropped in quality, but there were still moments that I liked.

1. Yoda dying. When he whispers “there is another skywalker” and fading away+music and the look on Luke’s face when he realizes he’s the last Jedi… you really get that feeling, that one generation of Jedi is done for and gone
but it kinda bothered me that there was Obi Wan ghost scene after that, I mean come on, death is dramatic, then you diminish the whole effect with ghosts and stuff. I would appreciate hints of afterlife more, than straightforward ghosts (for example “Use the Force, Luke!” in IV was great)

2. Luke Vader fight. The best one in the whole saga, music is awesome.

3. Luke burning Vader’s body.

So yeah, I kinda like episode VI, but the V in terms of quality is the best.

I would love to see some hardcore Star Wars stuff in the same spirit as Lord of The Rings movies. You know, kinda deeper & more philosophical, packed with mythology, yet still entertaining.

Good thing it’s out of Lucas’ hands, then. Wink

I’ve never really clicked with the terminator films. Same with Alien and Predator too.
