Yes. He is surrounded by nervous yes men who are too scared to tell him that he isn't on the right track. The same goes for Axl Rose, Michael Jackson etc. Their work suffers--or suffered in the case of Jackson--because nobody is honest with them and just blows smoke up their ass to maintain their employment.

It's hard to blame them really. Jobs in the movie industry aren't easy to come by, and I'm sure Lucas pays reasonably well. Even if he doesn't pay well, it's still experience that would be valuable later.

The general response after the Hollywood premiere is overwhelmingly positive. Brining Cuchulainn Jr. to see it on Saturday.

No surprise there. It'll take a while for it to be properly assessed I'd say.

I wouldn't pay too much attention to what insiders say after a premiere.

Yeah. No-one's going to come out and say 'It's shite'. Fucking Empire gave The Phantom Menace 5 stars on release.

Initial ratings on Rotten tomatoes have it at a 95, and the responses fr the premiere have been all but positive. Unless you're a diehard OT fanboy the film will probably be at the very least a great modern imagining/story, there is no way it will tank like the first two prequels

Initial gut reaction, spoiler free:

saw the film today, for the most part really enjoyed and was most of the way through, occasionally lifted out by some of the call backs and some plot points but I actually cared about the characters. There aren't too many jokey bits and while none are that great, they generally weren't annoying. Liked the four new characters- Ren and the three goodies. Poe Dameron (HURR) doesn't get a lot to do but is fine. Liked the fact that Ren is a three dimensional baddy, it took Vader three films to get there.

It's obviously infinitely better than the prequels, the pacing was mostly very good, though I do feel some of the prosthetics/physical effects were a little lacking, it's rare that I think something could actually benefit from a little more CGI but some of incidental creatures faces would have benefited from some, to give them more articulation. Harrison Ford looks like death and Carrie Fisher looks like she's been rendered in CGI, only with poor articulation, she's obviously had a lot of work done and I think she was digitally airbrushed to fuck. Fortunately the focus is on the newer characters. I like the way Supreme Leader Snoke (HURR) was rendered, let's see where that goes in the future though.

Possibly over reliance on the original trilogy for imagery and plot points, ANOTHER FUCKING DEATHSTAR. Cunts. Hopefully this will dwindle over the next two,as thisone is effectively a bridge.

More thoughts as they occur.

Loved it.
Seen in twice now. Once in 3D, once in good old fashioned 2D.
2D was better.


Will go into it more at a later date. Too busy being eight years old again at the moment.

I've heard it's practically a remake of A New Hope.

It's bordering on that, a friend saw it yesterday and said he'd have preferred it as a reboot than a "new " film.

So I saw it, and it was mostly enjoyable, at the very least surpassing my tapered expectations. At the very least, I felt they managed to strike the tone of the original trilogy (unlike the prequels).

Statters, it isn't much of a stretch to say that they effectively remade 'A New Hope', at least as far as the basic underlying plot, but there were some interesting developments among the core characters (well, the newer ones anyway) that certainly has me intrigued about the upcoming sequels, so hopefully the backdrop and window dressing will get a bit more original, though it may not.

I think it is the best we could have hoped for from a Star Wars film at this point. Obviously there is some people losing their shit way too much (it was at 97 on Rotten Tomatoes before I went to see it), and that is giving it more credit than it really deserves. I think a lot of people were just happy to see a decent (if slightly flawed) film.
