  •  I think the Star Trek movie review is correct (1+ / 0-)

    The gripe I had with BOTH of the most recent movies is that they're not character-based anymore. They're just SFX eye candy. We don't CARE about these once-beloved characters anymore because the real characters simply aren't there anymore.

    And sadly I think the same thing will happen with the Star Wars franchise as well.  Lots of eye candy, lots of frantic fast-paced action--and no story, theme, characters, or emotion.

    I would SOOOOOO much prefer to see someone like Joss Whedon making these films--someone who understands that the FX and action scenes supplement the story and characters, not replace them.

      Is my limit. More than that is wretched excess. Boy! That lets out a lotta current filmage.

      What stronger breast-plate than a heart untainted! Thrice is he arm'd, that hath his quarrel just; And he but naked, though lock'd up in steel, Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted. King Henry, scene ii
