    @Rob: I`d let Joss concentrate on Avengers. Joss is comic book man. Abrams is Sci-Fi man.

    Hope it`s better than....wait...J.J. Abrams is a poo director. So much for "Star Wars". Hey,let him direct "Batman" so we can be done with that franchise too.

    I gave up on the Star Wars franchise the second I saw & heard Jar Jar Binks. Actually it was even sooner than that, when the Special Edition Trilogy Box Set was released in 1997 and George Lucas added all that sh*t to the films which were fine the way were originally. I gave him the benefit of the doubt with the Phantom Menace, but like I said, Jar Jar took care of that. To this day I haven`t seen the other 2 and probably never will.

    A discussion at work led to the conclusion that the director`s addiction to CG mass-character (or machinery, or creature) scenes ruined the second batch (sorry, don`t know the term you use). The originals gave you lots of one- and two-shots, close quarters, even ECUs, that gave you a feeling for the characters. Huge, confusing scenes with 20 things to look at really detracted from the story
    Okay, that was Part 1 of what was wrong..

    There`s a pretty good car chase {flying cars of course} in the second one but that`s all. In the third, well if you ignore the horrible dialog, terrible acting, stupid plot line, if you ignore all that then the movie is just terrible.

    @auburnjunky joss wehdon is some kind of god. he could take care of both avengers and star wars. besides i wouldnt expect to see another avengers movie until we get the next iron man thor and captain america out of the way. he has lots of time. joss wehdon should write it too. and joss wehdon should make a new indiana jones movie. one with out shia ladouche.

    Make it Peter Jackson. Better yet, M Night Shyamalan. Now that would change things.

    You all make me laugh. It`s Star Wars. Of course you`re going to watch it. Then we`ll all pick it to pieces, like we think we could`ve done better, and vow that we`re done with it, until episode 8 comes out, repeat cycle.

    That`s a bad joke, right? As if Lucas himself didn`t do his best to kill the franchise, they`re going to make it official and hand it to that hack? I still have nightmares about his Star Trek abomination.

    I like him as a director. Even though it wasn`t what people expected, Super 8 was great, so was Fringe, Star Trek, I have some issues with Cloverfield but that`s more on the writer anyway...

    Silent Running is one of my favorite hard science fiction movies and I was able to sit through Mission to Mars, but episode 2 and 3 are the ONLY movies I have ever fallen asleep watching in the theater.

    I`m happy with this decision. Go look who`s writing the screen play. Might change your mind.
