I like what he did with his Star Trek venture. I thought it was one of the best Star Trek movies. As long as there are no more Ewoks or a Jar Jar Binks I'll be happy.
But I read Michael Arndt is doing the screen play. Little Miss Sunshine is hilarious. And Toy Story 3 is fun. But Star Wars?? That's a little concerning.
The filmmaker moves from 'Star Trek' to another sci-fi pop-culture franchise.
Not my first choice but it should be far better than Episodes 1 and 2. Probably Episode 3 as well.
I am very nervous about this. I want to be SO excited, but I'm holding back so as to not be crushed emotionally.
That being said, Lucas did the recent prequels, and we all know how Episode 1 turned out. Although 3 was fantastic.
My your liqueur be cold, your women be hot, and all your problems slide off like snot.
If you're talking about th most recent Star Trek movie, I thought that was aweful! Hope he does better with Star Wars.
I liked 2. Finding out the origin of the Storm Troopers was the best part (I didn't read the books).
Out of curiosity, has anyone heard what the plot of the movie is supposed to be?
What sucked about it? I thought it was total fun. Their characters as "young buckaroos". Spock meeting Spock was very cool.
Lucas did that on purpose. He wanted to attract the 10 year old to grow with Anakin.
But yes episode 1 was tough to watch
He tried to make Star Trek something it's not.
He even stated how he never even liked Star Trek before.
Just a guess but it will be about the dangers of the dark side of the force
EDIT: In all seriousness, I found the attached.
Oscar-winner Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) is writing the Star Wars Episode VII script. Read on for additional details, including which directors are going to be offered the project.

I thought it was a very "modern movie". What I mean by that is so many movies these days try to dazzle you with three things: things moving fast, special effects and "attitude" to mask lack of acting ability.
Just my opinion.
Going out on a limb there! :)
I edited my original sarcasm with a link.
For me it was the fact that it was just a generic action movie with the Star Trek property tacked on. No "going boldly where no man has gone before", no real exploration, the action scenes were formulaic, the overall plot was dull, and the Enterprise itself was barely used at all. The only outstanding part of the movie was, ironically, the acting. Watching Spock beat Kirk's ass was awesome.
Yea I saw it. That's why I put the smiley face on my post. No worries...I thought your post was funny.
I actually fell asleep during the movie for about 10 minutes.
I'm with you. I recently saw the Hobbit in 3D. It was cool but at the same time I also don't need movies to rely on great special effects and "epic battle scenes". But at the same time, seeing those Tie Fighters flying through space shooting lasers in the movie theater back in the 70's was pretty freakin cool.
I fell asleep in the movie theater watching Avatar.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not against great special effects. But the effects should support the movie, not be what the movie is about. After a while that just gets boring.
I'm sure a lot of people did. Wasn't that movie about three days long????
I just hope the ending is better than the last episodes for both Lost and Fringe.... :)
The ending for Episode III really could't have happened any other way. They could have done it better though.
Watching Avatar was like watching a stunningly rendered vase. I can't remember the last time I've ever been so bored with a movie so pretty.
Well stated. I'm glad I wasn't the only one. At times it felt like I was watching a "sounds of nature, meditation video". That was probably right before I fell asleep.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
