    First Comment!

    • December 9, 2015 at 11:39 pm

      And please don’t scold me by saying something like “The first comment is not important,” or “You’re so immature.”

      • December 9, 2015 at 11:44 pm

        The first comment is not important. You’re so immature.

      • December 9, 2015 at 11:44 pm

        You’re so immature..

      • December 9, 2015 at 11:46 pm

        The first comment is always the most important, and we’re all impressed by your maturity,

        Thumbs up!

        • December 10, 2015 at 12:57 am

          Thanks you so much! You just made my day! But by the way, how do you post a picture like that?

          • December 10, 2015 at 2:17 am

            You’re welcome. In the text entry box you’ll see a little “image” icon towards the bottom left. Click it and you can upload photos, including animated GIFs.

      • December 9, 2015 at 11:54 pm

        Okay. Instead I’ll say this:

        Man, that’s BADASS!! *gives you a cookie*

        There, are you happy now?

      • December 10, 2015 at 12:16 am

        You’re so immature dude, everyone knows the first comment is not important.

      • December 10, 2015 at 1:13 am

        you don’t know the power… of being first.

  • December 9, 2015 at 11:58 pm

    I’m curious, what kind of posts will you all make on TFA after the release date? more specifically, will you be writing any editorials or criticism on the film?

    • December 10, 2015 at 12:01 am

      I’ll be waiting about one month before even acknowledging the film’s release, to make sure that i don’t spoil it for anyone.

      • December 10, 2015 at 1:43 am

        You’re a gentleman and a scholar 🙂

        (Unless you’re a lady, of course!)

        • December 10, 2015 at 3:24 am

          Why thank you kind sire.

    • December 10, 2015 at 12:15 am

      They’ll talk about episode 8 obviously, dumbass.

      • December 10, 2015 at 12:37 am

        Hey Edgar..take a chill pill sheesh.

      • December 10, 2015 at 12:39 am

        whoooa lol chill out edgar mellencamp. btw, i see many of your comments, and your profile pic matches the tone of your words.

      • December 10, 2015 at 1:41 am

        The question asked about TFA, specifically whether they would post their own critical reviews, etc. No need to be rude.

      • December 10, 2015 at 3:25 am

        When the people below you can’t release that the person above you was joking.

      It’s kind of like watching porn for years and then finally having sex. The final result could go either way.

  • December 10, 2015 at 12:29 am

    That is 2:30 AM my time. Well…

    I waited to 4 AM for the final trailer, so this will be a breeze. Plus, I have to see the first interview with Mark Hamill.

    • December 10, 2015 at 12:33 am

      I don’t think Hamill will be there. Won’t the stars of the film be at the premiere in London?

      • December 10, 2015 at 12:47 am

        London premiere is on 16th. And they will all be there too, but L.A. is first.

        And, of course Hamill will be there. They are not leaving him out of premiere.

        • December 10, 2015 at 1:14 am

          …unless he’s not in the film. 😉

          • December 10, 2015 at 1:48 am


            *sniff* *sniff* Do you want to kill me? (◕︵◕)

          • December 10, 2015 at 2:34 am

            Oh lord. At the very end all we see is Luke’s shadow as he walks off in the distance. Only to finally appear in the start of ep 8…


        • December 10, 2015 at 6:55 am

          Why not, they’ve left him out of everything else… 🙂

  • December 10, 2015 at 12:59 am

    I doubt the film will get good reviews, Not because it will suck but since none of the films ever really got any decent ones outside of the “original’ one. The critics are also very anti-sequel since they are sick to death of them at this point and anti-blockbuster as well. I think it will do better critically than the PT though, Probably not better than the OT or at least in term of award nods.

    • December 10, 2015 at 2:06 am

      I also think that the relatively small-time reviewers like Doug Walker will dislike it based on its inevitable failure to live up to the hype. Nothing can ever live up to hype.

      • December 10, 2015 at 3:04 am

        doug just likes to stir the pot up, its his shtick.

      • December 10, 2015 at 11:15 am

        I’m honestly not much of a fan of origin stories which this film pretty much is, I like the ones that get right into the meat of the story and don’t need any setup which is why I think Sith and Empire are the best of each trilogy.

        • December 10, 2015 at 6:22 pm

          But you can’t deny that the power of the “meaty” films wouldn’t have been nearly as strong if not for that origin story to introduce us to the characters. I get where you’re coming from, but it’s like “bad days” versus “good days”. You need some bad ones to appreciate the good ones all the more.

          • December 11, 2015 at 5:49 am

            It depends. I thought ANH was a good origin story which is probably why they are borrowing from it in this one but TPM did it all wrong and the trilogy never hit it’s stride till Sith.

    • December 10, 2015 at 2:14 am

      I think you may be wrong. Critics, and the general public, were so disappointed by the prequels that I reckon we’ll all be absolutely delighted just to have a genuinely good Star Wars film.

      • December 10, 2015 at 11:13 am

        Maybe this was all as Emperor Lucas has forseen? It would be like him to lower the bar with his own trilogy right after he made bank by converting his fortune into Disney stock.

    • December 10, 2015 at 2:19 am

      They seemed to enjoy Fury Road.

      • December 10, 2015 at 11:18 am

        Fury Road is totally different! The Mad Max series was DOA until it came out and George Miller is as anti-hollywood as Abrams is Hollywood. The heavy feminist overtones didn’t hurt either. Star Wars unlike Max has never really left.

    • December 10, 2015 at 2:32 am

      Forget the reviews. We have to.

      • December 10, 2015 at 11:21 am

        Even The Clone Wars film got slaughtered by them though that time they were actually in the right.

    • December 10, 2015 at 2:39 am

      Expect the reviews to be like they were for Abrams Star Trek Reboot. As a director, he knows what he’s doing and he knows how to make a compelling, enjoyable popcorn movie. From what I can tell, SW7 will have his trademark camera moves and roughly the same lighting we saw in ST2 Into Darkness. Don’t expect this movie to break any new ground. The John Willians score may elevate it above Star Trek, but I very much doubt that the actors will have the chemistry or delivery performances like the leads in Star Trek. Especially Zachary Quinto brings real magic to the screen with his Spock.
      I expect a Rotten Tomatoes score of around 85-90%.

      People will say the new movie is “much better than the prequels, but not as good as the originals.”

      • December 10, 2015 at 3:47 am

        Look at the percentages on from all those review sources for the Abram’s Star Treks. Not bad at all. Way some people scream about them you’d think they’d be 20 percent good.

        • December 10, 2015 at 3:49 am

          95 percent positive reviews for Star Trek (2009) and 87 percent positive for ST:Into the Darkness (2013) Guest it’s a screaming vocal minority that hate them.

          • December 10, 2015 at 11:27 am

            Trek conventions say otherwise and they are hardly a fringe fandom. Like I said elsewhere. A great deal of reviewers today are studio plants, shills, or fanboys that are film illiterate. No different than how worthless higher education is today outside the STEM degrees.

          • December 10, 2015 at 11:45 am

            But people who post on message boards like this aren’t the majority either. Including you, and myself.

          • December 10, 2015 at 11:52 am

            That is true but the older films (at least the trilogy) are huge in the sci-fi community since they been around for decades. Nearly as iconic as the OT but not quite. Much like the PT, Not many would care about the Abrams-verse had they not been the same characters from TOS.

          • December 10, 2015 at 1:52 pm

            Trek fandom is established and goes back aways, but it is more fringe now than ever. There was nothing prior to 2009. Enterprise was crap and Voyager and DS9 was a looooong time ago. There was no ‘new fans’ of Trek for well over a decage.

          • December 11, 2015 at 5:45 am

            Which makes my point that the Abrams series just had fair weather fans who were not really passionate about it in the way that ones of the OT are.

        • December 10, 2015 at 5:20 am

          I hadn’t checked the percentages and I’m actually surprised to see such high numbers. Clearly overrated, especially the second, which is a disjointed mess of a movie.

          I enjoyed the Star Trek movies, but one thing strikes me as odd and I think it’s the reason they retrospectively get a bad rap: one rarely remembers any significant shots from those movies. I remember the death scene of Kirk’s father from the first movie and Nero’s huge tentacled spaceship. And that’s about it.
          Even from the Star Wars prequels, there are countless shots that are just so damn memorable. Say what you will about Lucas, but he knows how to set the stage.
          When one thinks of Mad Max Fury Road or any Spielberg, Nolan or Tarantino movie, one immediately sees very specific scenes in one’s mind. For some reason I don’t get that with JJ Abrams’ movies. Maybe it’s because he constantly keeps his camera moving or because he cuts so fast, or maybe it’s the lighting or staging.
          I really hope he went easier on the fast cuts and rotating cameras with the new star wars. The old movies have an operatic feel to them. Lots of stationary camera shots. Just think of the opening shot of Episode IV. It’s so effective because the Camera doesn’t move and takes its time. Imagine the same shot a third as quick with a camera moving around the star destroyer. Visually impressive yes. Exciting yes. But not as epic and not as memorable.

      • December 10, 2015 at 3:50 am

        A lot of people will always say they aren’t good as the originals, no matter who directs or writes. Nostalgia protects those.

      • December 10, 2015 at 11:24 am

        I said something similar months ago that it will probably meet my expectations as in be somewhere between Revenge Of The Sith and Return Of The Jedi but it won’t touch Empire or ANH.

        On the brightside, It likely won’t sink to TPM or AOTC levels.

    • December 10, 2015 at 3:52 am

      Didn’t Revenge of the Sith get about 80 percent good reviews at the biggest compilation site,

      • December 10, 2015 at 11:31 am

        Didn’t ROTS get zero Academy nominations?

        • December 10, 2015 at 11:42 am

          I’m not for using bad/good review data anyway, but when people bring up the bad reviews as if they hold water on a site like that, the good reviews can be used too. That’s what I am saying.

          • December 10, 2015 at 11:56 am

            It’s a lot like the publishing industry. We live in a literary world where any member of the Kardashian clan can “write” a best seller. Same with film reviews, I mean look at the top list on IMDB to see how askew it is. The Dark Knight is the highest ranked film of the past half century I believe. Even it’s shit sequel is higher up on there than any of the SW films I think.

          • December 10, 2015 at 12:03 pm

            I just don’t like it when people state “opinions” as “facts”

            and speak as if their opinion is absolute fact. It’s pretty subjective on what is good or bad. Who decides the standards? Who gives them the power or authority? Not the consensus, you on one seem to agree it’s the consensus, on other hand the consensus make up is shilled. Which is it?

          • December 10, 2015 at 12:41 pm

            You go on Stormfront and they’ll say 95 percent of blacks are felons, You visit a BLM site and they’ll try to convince you that black on black crime is all but non-existant and made up by the media. It’s the same lie but they don’t see it because the truth is somewhere in between.

            There’s a reason why we are living in a golden age of ignorance even though information is more readily available now than any time in history because most humans lack the ability to reason so they can filter the truth from the BS. It’s not something that can be taught either, You were either born with logical thinking abilities or you are plant food.

            The fact is that the OT and old Trek films (least til IV) are classics in the way that the PT and Abrams Trek never were nor ever will be. It’s the Beatles vs Oasis analogy again. When the masses/critics agree on something like that and it stands the test of time then you’ll see what I mean.

            Do we see Podracers or ST aliens from the last two films whenever SW or Trek is mentioned by most? Of course not, There’s a reason why they market heavily on the old shit and keep the new stuff to a bare minimum.

          • December 10, 2015 at 1:06 pm

            Those older films came out at a time there was a lot less competition for the entertainment dollar. Now it takes a helluva lot to amuse people compared to back then. We see stuff all the time now.

          • December 11, 2015 at 5:40 am

            That’s true but it wasn’t just about the effects otherwise no one would have given a shit about the EU which kept Star Wars alive in the 90’s and was a large reason why the PT even happened.

  • December 10, 2015 at 1:11 am

    “presented by Verizon.” *sigh*

    regardless, should be a lot of fun.

    • December 10, 2015 at 3:45 am

      Now if that Tie was a TIE fighter.

  • December 10, 2015 at 1:34 am

    What are the chances we might break though?

    • December 10, 2015 at 1:51 am

      based on what happened to fandango, pretty darn high.

  • December 10, 2015 at 3:13 am

    Doesn’t anyone else find it unusual that we still don’t know, 5 days before the premiere, what venue the premiere will actually be at? All we know it it’s in Los Angeles.

    • December 10, 2015 at 5:11 am

      It’s either the Chinese or El Captain.

      • December 10, 2015 at 6:51 am

        Actually, the second choice would more likely be Westwood village, since they can accommodate additional attendees [spill over] right across the street in the adjacent theater.

    • December 10, 2015 at 6:50 am

      Disney Hall

  • December 10, 2015 at 5:30 am

    I found myself in a weird position that I never expected to be in; with only a week left I literally don’t care at all about any of the new stuff coming out. I stopped watching TV spots and I am not at all compelled to look at the batch of new images. Even re-watching the old trailers don’t do anything for me. Don’t get me wrong, I am over the moon excited for the movie but I am sick and done with the little appetizers. It has been 13 months since the initial teaser and I just want the movie at this point.

    • December 10, 2015 at 5:48 am

      I agree with this sentiment completely… until recently I was devouring every new tidbit I could. Now I’m content to wait for the actual movie, partly to avoid spoilers, but also because it’s just become overkill at this point. I don’t need every aspect of the movie dissected this much before I even see it.

      • December 10, 2015 at 4:24 pm

        Yeah! I mean I seen a couple of the new images on my twitter and though they were cool and looked like Star Wars, but I’m not losing my mind over them or anything. I just want to go in and hopefully once that music starts I will be in the hands of JJ Abrams.

    • December 10, 2015 at 6:48 am

      I don’t have time to get into it, but it’s a natural human response mechanism

  • December 10, 2015 at 5:49 am

    This should be fun to watch as my final Star Wars treat before I go internet dark until the 19th (yes, sadly can’t see the movie opening day).

  • December 10, 2015 at 6:47 am

    But where is the premiere…

  • December 10, 2015 at 3:47 pm

    I’m so effing tired of waiting for this movie. One more week! I can’t take it anymore
