That J.J. Abrams is going to direct the next Star Wars movie is pretty old news by now. It seems like a lot of people consider that a bad movie and, quite frankly, I do not understand why.
Now, I’m not really in favor of the Star Trek reboot. Sure, it wasn’t really a bad movie and I’m quite happy that new Star Trek material gets produced but I would still have liked a continuation of the real timeline instead of throwing everything out and starting over again.
Having said that, it wasn’t really a bad movie. They did a decent job of tying it together with old timeline and if you can get past the fact that they screwed up “your” Star Trek universe, J.J. Abrams did a decent job with the movie. At least that’s my opinion. So, why should he do a bad job with the Star Wars franchise?
After all, can it really be worse than the screw-ups that Lucas himself has produced lately?
