I just saw the trailer, and man I really donít care about this movie.

I get that Iím 40 years older than when I first saw Star Wars, but thatís why I should care, or wished I cared.

Do you?

Nope. Never been into Star Wars despite being a pretty big dork with many other things. I never even saw the original movies in the right order!

After the insane fan fighting about the new movies, I'm really glad I don't care.

However, even if the trailer was the worst possible thing imaginable I would still go see the movie

I saw Force Awakens because it looked fun and I was pretty curious and everyone talked about it nonstop.

I saw Rogue One because a few people I know wanted to see it and I'm always down to go to a movie. I was bored throughout the whole thing.

Last Jedi was out of curiosity since I saw Force Awakens. My girlfriend hated it so much, she couldn't stop bringing it up for months and now says she won't see the next one because of it. I was indifferent to it.

Did not see Solo as my girlfriend refused and I didn't care enough, though we keep saying maybe we'll watch it on TV sometime. Probably won't happen for years.

Iím not overly pumped, but Iíll go see it almost out of obligation. Iím of a mind that the last really good Star Wars movie came out in 1983. I grew up on them, like many. Iíve seen every one since then in the theater except Solo (although it turned out to be ďokayĒ when I watched it at home). I just donít really get jazzed about movies period these days. Especially the big ones. I canít believe people are still going to all these super hero movies. They were getting long in the tooth back when the Dark Knight Rises came out. Every movie is just a big rollercoaster ride these days, with weak dialog and stories so they translate well to global markets.


I had a bad reaction to your public hobby writings.

I will go see it because I grew up with the original films and they're in my DNA. Do I really care? That's a simple question with a complicated answer.

I think the newer movies are well made and a lot of fun, but I don't think they're really for the old school Star Wars fans, despite looking and feeling much more like Star Wars movies than the prequel trilogy ever managed. I think they're for a new generation. And I like that they're changing things up. The original films are very much painted in black and white. These new films have a bit more ambiguity. I think they're at their best when they are building a new mythology around the force and showing us sentiments from the characters which we didn't see in the original trilogy. I think they're at their worst when they emulate Marvel films and get extremely wacky. I'm curious to see what they accomplish with the last film in the main storyline though. It seems like it should be predictable where it would go from here, but I honestly can't think of what they can do next.

Star Wars a great stand alone movie that turned out to be part one of an awesome trilogy. It all fit together so nice.

The prequels, while being not good, had guaranteed pay off of getting to see Darth Vader again and tell that whole story.

I still do not know what these new films are about and how they make up one new trilogy?

I saw Rogue One with my friends and hated it, and then 2 weeks later I saw it again with my kids and enjoyed it this time. So yeah, for good family fun I still like the Star Wars flicks. I liked Last Jedi quite a bit. They're still much better than the fucking Marvel superhero shit flicks. Guardians of the Galaxy is the only movie I walked out of in years.

PC goon Kathleen Kennedy turned something mediocre into something genuinely evil but that's what culture is these days.
