I yet to see an Abrams movie that I thought was even above average, let alone average.

If the latest Star Trek is good, I'll have more hope. But MI-3 was generic, Super 8 was more Spielberg than Abrams (and lame).

I'll remain skeptical until I hear more.

Woody Allen is in line to direct the third.

I'd rather see Scorsese given the nod.

The only problem is now it'll be another five years until we get the next ****ing Star Trek movie.

It's not like this guy is the only good director in Hollywood.

Star Wars is right in his wheelhouse, though.

He tried to turn Star Trek into Star Wars and mostly succeeded.

To be honest just about anyone with some decent directorial chops is going to be a lot better than Lucas.

I thought the casting was excellent, as were the special effects.

I thought the story was very weak and that "Time Travel" ruins most everything, as it negates what we love about storylines and characters.

The movie was edited too choppy for a Star Wars film and the score was outright garbage. I really don't care to hear "Lost" leftover cues in a Star Wars film so I hope he hires someone other than Giacchino.

Would John Williams be a possibility? He's only been scoring for Spielberg recently.

Personally, I think that's a huge leap. MI-3 wasn't Star Wars. Alias wasn't Star Wars. Lost was ****ing stupid. His other movies haven't been complete fail but his resume isn't exactly sterling.

I'd have rather seen Brad Bird or even Andrew Stanton over Abrams, let alone Nolan, Snyder or the insane home run choice of James Cameron.

Star Trek felt a lot like a Star Wars film.

So did the 8 minutes of Into Darkness we were shown before The Hobbit.

I don't know what kind of relationship he has with Abrams, which is everything in filmmaking. so my initial guess would be no.

I'd rather see Ottman or Powell before Giacchino. At least Ottman was able seamlessly weave the score in that piece of dung, Returns. And very effectively.

Just no Hans Zimmer (and his factory of sound-a-likes). Yuck.

How many times have you seen it? I liked it okay in the theater but after multiple viewings, it doesn't stand up thematically.

The actors are great and very charismatic but outside of that, it's just, well, whatever.

Cloverfield and Super 8 had elements in them that touched me in the same place Star Wars always did, too.

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.
