I remember back in the day when we heard there would be 9 films…and I did the math at 3 years apart…and my 12 year old self pictured myself as a grown man taking my own kids to the last of the films…and I pictured myself in a suit and tie! I could probably count on one hand the number of times I've worn a suit and tie outside of a wedding or funeral! But yeah, exciting to think I'll be fulfilling this dream minus suit and tie!.....We're going to be sitting in a darkened theater watching EPISODE IX someday!!!
I'm still trying to wrap my head around this fact.... o-o
You're assuming Trevorrow can only do one kind of film. It wasn't Jurassic World that really caught Lucasfilm's eye... it was Safety Not Guaranteed, which is a very different beast from Jurassic World. JW just showed 'em he could manage an effects-laden big adventure.I'm unsure how I feel about this. Star Wars is very different from Jurassic Park thematically, story wise, and in motif. I know people were apathetic about the amoral plot line and lack of motifs in Jurassic World, but SW as a franchise is built off of ideologies and themes. The entire OT was a coming of age story that it's target audience could continue to find relatable they grew out of their teens and became young adults. The PT was a giant allusion to the fall of the Roman Empire and included parallels to the US Government both at the time the movies were made as well as taking themes from the US Civil War. I just feel like with Trevorrow at the helm, we wouldn't get a continuation of themes, ideologies, and morals.
haha... I will be 50 too, I'll have to rewatch EP IV-VI to refresh my memory, and hopefully by then I would have forgotten about EP I-III. My oldest will be 17... wow.It just occured to me, I will most likely be 50 years old when I go to see this film with my teenage daughter!!!
IX is Christmas and now there is rumours Han Solo is moving back too.a far as I heard - Solo in May 2018 and the rest will follow in future May dates, like the old days, the proper time of the year for a SW cinematic release. but, we'll see.
I've been around for all six. It doesn't matter to me when they are released and I know plenty who share that opinion and share yours.The first six were released then, just happened that way, so call me nostalgic, traditional, whatever. Those whom were there for the 1st six films cinematically usually feel this way, as minuscule as it sounds. depending on where you live, mid winter releases can be a huge pain in the ***. Like I say a lot around here, we'll see.
Lol. I think its funny that we are posting on a forum where the current film is being labeled the worst star wars movie, and there is a thread titled The force awakens is the worst movie ever made!Can we start giving this film negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes yet, or is it too early? Because this movie is totally going to ruin Star Wars for me....
