Anyone seen it yet?
What did you think of it?
Are you a big fan of Star Wars?
I was a Star Wars geek in my teens, but then I started getting into other things (like Suikoden) and realised i was more into fantasy than sci-fi.
So anyway, I watched the new film last night and there were parts I did like and parts I didn't like.
I don't think they should have brought back the old actors playing their characters from the original movies, I would have been quite happy not knowing what became of them after Return of the Jedi (maybe just keep Luke in the story and leave everyone else out of it)
The story seems kind of lazy as they are basically retelling the same story from the original trilogy, just with a new generation of characters.
And the new characters aren't all that interesting, with the exception of the spinning little robot. The villains suck. Even the prequels had some decent bad guys.
So yeah, it was a decent sci-fi adventure, capable of appealing to sci-fi fans and non-sci-fi fans alike, but it wasn't really enough to reawaken my interest in Star Wars. I'm not exactly wetting myself for the next film.
