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.
Fringe was awesome. Fox ****ed it up.

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.
I think the Time Travel was necessary to bridge the "old" universe with the "new" one. It probably could have been done better, but I still really enjoy the film, even after multiple viewings

As I mentioned in the original Fringe thread, it should have ended with at Season 4, when Bell disappeared. But at that point, they didn't have enough episodes for syndication, so they ordered 13 more to hit the magic number of "100".

Abrams was only on board at the beginning: It was really Kurtzman and Orci's show but in all honesty, the show was rudderless until about episode 18 of the first season. The show wanted to be X-Files, then a Monster of the Week show, etc. and so on.

They were lucky to be renewed after season one.

I don't think I have ever seen anything of JJ Abrams, wait he did Super 8 which was pretty good. However if this is going to be some sort of prequel bullshit.. then **** it.

I didn't like that they only had one more season after 4, which made it feel rushed and tacked-on. 6 seasons would have been better, but I'm happy with it.

MOTW is okay. It kinda has to be, based upon the premise, at least to some extent.

In any case, Abrams is directing, but if he's not writing the whole thing, I don't see any reason to be dissatisfied with the choice for him as director. As long as there's no ****ing metachlorients or Jar-Jar, I'll be okay.

I've just never been impressed with Abrams as a director. I think Matthew Vaughn would have been the better choice but for whatever reason, LucasFilm chose Abrams.

I've heard that it's a female lead in this film, so it makes sense to go with Abrams, I suppose, because of Felicity and Lost. But I'll remain skeptical until I see it.

I like Abrams, but will admit he has some weaknesses. Hes a master of pacing and creating tension and scenes. But then when you go back and watch, you see how hollow and empty some of his stuff is. Honestly, hes probably better for Star Wars then Trek considering Trek is a little more heady and highbrow.


Vaughn would have been superb, or Fincher, Cameron, etc..........But overall, Abrams wont be bad. Hes basically a safe choice.

I think it's kind of ironic he's taking over for Lucas.

I think he's about to run a number of profitable franchises and is the most hyped name since Lucas...

Apparently they is not only going to be a new trilogy, but new stand alone films as well....and Lawerence Kasdan is going to involved in writing them! That is the best Star Wars news yet! (Kasdan is one of the reasons why Empire is so ****ing good).

Boba Fett is definitely in the mix.

The Yoda rumors have been around for years and I think if done right, will appeal to kids and adults.
