    Well - I hadn't seen any of it, and being a George Lucas and Star Wars fanatic, owning almost more toys than anyone in the metro Detroit area, I felt very bummed after absolutely loving Lucas first 6 brilliant Star Wars films.

    Another issue is the inability of Hollywood being unwilling and unable to address a simple issue, and that being the subject of war in any honest fashion whatsoever, with 4 exceptions: Oliver Stones "Salvador" and "Platoon," "the Killing Fields," and "Rendition" (2007).

    Take a straightfoward issue like Matt Damon in 'Green Zone ' (2010) where the issue is the American militarys inability to stabilize Iraq after the 2003 invasion - even in the 'Green Zone - but instead the movie becomes a propaganda film with Matt Damon looking for Iraqs WMD, like some bad episode of Columbo or something.

    What kind of Star Wars fanatic waits 8 months to see the latest movie ? You could NEVER hang out with the "Bing Bang Theory" guys.

    You HAVE seen how JJ Abrahms ruined the Star Trek franchise, for good. With horrible acting, bad script dialogue, and relying way too heavily on booming sound effects, and blinding flashes to stun the audience, never mind the cheap plot devices. There's a reason BIG BANG THEORYS Sheldon says "Up yours Zachary Quinto," to the new Star Trek cut-out he gets in the mail. How I long for the masterful acting of Patrick Stewart!

    You know - Lucas really screwed the fans by re-doing the original trilogy, adding those new scenes and backrounds to the movie sets. Lucas sold out to kids cartoon Disney and can be kind of a d-bag (like all moguls.) According to IMDB, George Lucas sued the producers of Battlestar Galactica claiming they could not use laser gun blasts in the pistol shots of Apollo and Starbuck, because he is so conceited. As a kid Battlestar Galactica at the theatre in sensurround was great fun. My aunt said she liked it better than Star Wars. Another d-bag mogul is Bill Gates, who ever since he created MS-DOS uses the same business model. Which is - get the operating system onto market to turn a profit as quickly as possible. This is why we have these debacles over Windows 7 not being compatible w/ some Vista compatible software, or that heinous piece of dog vomit known as Windows 10. Windows browsers are WORTHLESS, for example. You know that old saying - owners never listen. Yeah.

    I loved Batman, Godzilla, and Ultraman too when I was five. Now look at how badly they wrecked them.

    Corporate America doesn't want the Americans to have heroes. That gives the people hope or the realization that the status quo can be changed, or like X-Files - they don't want the public to know and gain power from the fact that we Americans can 'Fight the Future.' So corporate America killed the hero. Nolan killed the good guy in Batman, Star Wars killed Solo, even Mulder is a shadow of his former self. They turned Capt. Kirk into a hot-shot, stuck up punk kid. These are not accidents. It is the same reason corporate America killed rock n roll and heavy metal with no message posers like Axl Rose, Motley Crue, and Poison, they wanted to kill our culture, kill our soul, and above all kill your heroes warrior spirit to fight and change things for the better.

    You may be too young to remember, I don't know. But in the 1970s Sci-Fi/ Fantasy had a point to it. In one episode of Ultraman, they visit the 'graveyard of the monsters.' Ultraman realized his enemies were living things too, he felt sorry he had to kill them - this was very heavy stuff for a kid. Also - Ultraman had to defeat a monster that was born out of oil spills and had to feast on oil to survive. And, if you recall - in 'Godzilla versus the Smog Monster,' Godzilla doesn't just kill the Smog Monster, he has to rip his guts out, because the beast keeps reconstituting itself from the ever present air pollution. Godzilla was a magnificent hero, for a kid he had lots of personality!
