Five for evil.
TFA was a carbon copy of A New Hope. Only with lots of uncanny valley and bad CGI. Looks like TLJ will be a carbon copy of The Empire Strikes Back, complete with fanservice handjobs like an ice planet (MEMBER HOTH??) and a tiny chewbacca (MEMBER TINY FURRY THINGS???). And complete with what I can only guess will be a very bad CGI Zombie Leia. Funny how the scenes here were carefully chosen so they look like a photograph as they can't seem to master CGI closeups of dead actors, and should probably never do it. Hell, even the Administrator from Half Life 2 was better CGI than that.
Coupled with more big budget 'fanservice' movies that bored me to death like The Avengers and god knows what else, it's yet another reason why I don't wear geeky things in public because invariably someone will come up to you saying MEMBER HAN SOLO?? IM ABLE TO MAKE A REFERENCE ABOUT HIM TOO!
God nerds and geeks have become a cash cow in the last two decades.
Carrie Fisher was alive to film this one. I assume they rewrote it so Princess Leia get a heroic death.
I don't like fun things either.
If I can't masturbate to it, it ain't Schindlers List.
Internet VFX Supervisor doesn't like nerds but thinks Half Life 2 was photo real.
Man what a life.
ILM is recruiting, BTW. You should really share your notes with them.
I'll force you to watch transformers one through 9 on a loop until you admit that it's not worth bitching about a fairly well made and fairly well written star wars movie.
Eh, I'm sure it'll be fine. Just basic space sci-fi adventure stuff made well. Which I'm fine with. It's not like SW was ever high art or anything.

I'm out. I am not down for adventure on salt flats plant. You got me last time with adventures on Viking planet but not this time!
I'll watch it. It'll have to do until they make movies about the space fiction stories I have yet to write.
Not for me.
The news of a sequel to Star Control 2 by Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III totally stole the glory away from this trailer.

I enjoyed the last one so I'll give it a shot.
I gotta say though, "Shiny Stormtrooper" is the laziest character design ever. That about sums up her role in the first movie too. Looks like they're putting together a real bullshit excuse for a fight between her and whats-his-face in this movie too, super.
I hope the movie is less super shit than this trailer.
It bothers me that, in a movie series that gives inventive designs to background monsters with split seconds of screen time, a major antagonist is just a palette-swap of a regular enemy.

I like the Porg.
I think the big news that everyone missed is that Disney bought Christmas and moved it to December 15th.
"Ah boy, I'm just so tired of all these star wars!"
Kind of tired of Jedi being the "coolest thing" about Star Wars. We're all Jedi'd out. Hopefully the title means it this time.
I'm calling it. Since the middle film has to be the lowest point, of course, I'm guessing this film ends with Rey turning to the dark side. I mean..it's telegraphed in the trailer obviously, but I'll bet the writing gets that predictable. Empire had Han Solo frozen and kidnapped, this one's cliffhanger will be something like that...Rey joins the First Order. or she kills Luke Skywalker or something like that. It's gotta be something real bad...even more bad than Solo being frozen.
Rey is going to turn dark and Kylo is going to redeem himself by ending her.
I'll bet that this is wrong. Money if you like.
