The visuals look excellent and don't look sterile like I, II, III.

It would be challenge to write a plot worse than The Phantom Menace so I'm cautiously optimistic.

The trailer doesn't reveal much about the plot so there's nothing to judge really, aside the new lightsaber that was designed to sever the user's hand XD

I found out that the stormtrooper at the beginning is played by John Boyega.

I saw him in Attack the Block and thought he did an excellent job.

Its fine, for a teaser. Doesn't show much, and virtually zero characters. Too bad we have to wait another year for it to come out... I mean it probably hasn't had much editing done to it yet either.

What I did like about the teaser though, is that, based solely on it, it doesn't look to be as CGI heavy as the prequels...

Exactly what i was thinking, the sterile look of those movies was something that pulled me off big time. It just disconnected me as viewer with the world.

Still i find the constant need in holywood movies these days to be political correct a issue in movies. I also find this the week spot in star trek series to be perfectly honest. It's almost watching a list of a check boxes these days.

"oh we need a black dude, we need a asian, we need a girl, we need a homo, we need a white person. Etc etc.

I wish they would focus more on the actual movie then on being racial correct. My eyes started to roll as soon as the guy at the start in the sahara showed up.

So any time a movie casts someone other than a white male, it's for political correctness?

Wow.

One of the Star Trek series' main themes is about embracing diversity. It's been that way since the series began in the 1960s.

Also, "that guy" at the start is one of the lead characters so get used to seeing him.

Now that I think about it, it's kind of funny John Boyega is now the lead in a Star Wars flick. It's not the first time he's wielded a sword against aliens:

Just found out this movie airs on December 18, one day after my birthday. I know what I'm doing to celebrate this year now.

Camera work is gorgeous and that colorful planet with the red robot seems really neat.
Can't wait for the Boyega controversy to get even more heated for no good reason.

Gah! Just love everything about the trailer. The setpieces, the action sequences, the ****ing lines! Everything looks great about this movie. For the first time in a long time I have hope.

I am looking forward to this movie, I don't think they could do any worse then 1/2/3 and plus it looks so much better then the prequels. I am hoping this movie will be amazing, considering they are going to make more movies and I want to watch them all.

I think overall the prequels told a better story than the originals and my favorite is TPM. The prequels are more complicated and the galaxy is bigger.

I think the day GL passes, people will appreciate them more, unfortunately. And after seeing how bad TFA is. :P Seriously the leaked plot is terrible.

Complicated isn't necessarily better though. It made them a bloated mess.
The Phantom Menace has like five individual stories going on at the same time with totally different tones and doesn't give enough time for a single one to be properly settle before moving on to the next one. Its cinematography and acting were also pretty bad, mostly at the fault of Lucas' directing.

I can't think of a movie that had a worse romantic subplot than Attack of the Clones either.

I appreciate the impact they had on the greater Star Wars universe since we got some awesome games and EU stuff out of it but the standalone films are pretty bad.

To me TPM is about finding the chosen one and showing the political scene that has to happen to set up the story of the originals. Its not that complicated. It also has the most practical effects out of tne PT but that doesnt matter to me. Every movie today uses loads of cg and I like it because makes the world bigger.

Say what you say about the acting but I never found Mark Hamill or Carrie Fisher that great either. The scene in ANH when Lukes uncle and aunt are killed, mark is unemotional its wierd.

We don't really get a good grasp of the civil war, separatists and structure of the Republic until Attack of the Clones.
The Phantom Menace focused on that weird militarized trade blockade.

To be fair, some would say it makes sense to both rehash elements to ensure to older original trilogy/prequel fans that they can make a decent Star Wars movie, and to reintroduce it to new audiences.

I expect Episodes VIII and IX to be much more unique.

Regardless, I watched it, had more than a few criticisms (especially of the OST), but overall really enjoyed my time.

Movie was freaking amazing.

My only complaint is some of the whiny nerdy boys who are insulting one particular character for no true valid reason.

Saw it. Loved it.

A lot of callbacks to the original trilogy but I'm looking forward to the next two films all the same.

I want my own BB-8. They are 2 cute.

I was worried about the idea of a Darth Vader wannabe being the villain but the way he was executed made him the most interesting character in the whole film.
I don't understand how anyone is complaining about him. The idea that the Sith chasing the protagonists isn't this cool mostly silent charismatic badass but instead this poser living in the shadow of his role model who can't accomplish anything by himself is really refreshing. He still feels dangerous but in a "watch out for his temper tantrums because he'll take everything down with him" way, which is totally distinct from the more calculating and larger-than-life Vader or Maul.

Snoke is super disappointing though and I'm hoping he's some kind of bait and switch.

Yeah, I actually like Kylo Ren because he's this pathetic yet dangerous individual.

I have run into some gross people in my own life that are like that.

I originally was against a lot of things about Kylo Ren before watching it, but after watching the movie, I really like him as a character. Fin, Rey, and Kylo are all really cool characters to me.

I liked it better the second time. Rian Johnson will make a more original story so TFA will look better as a intro to the new movies.
