Not saying they were great films by any stretch but if you want to make a good Star Wars movie it needs to be high on emotion and spectacle. The audience needs to go on a ride. Abrams gets that. And he gets the idea of the hero's journey.
I would like nothing more than to see an amazing Star Wars
movie that is even within 80% of the original and Empire
I hope you're right.
