I'm salty over the former direction taken for the Star Wars franchise.

Lucas' brain AIDS nearly buried this awesomeness for good. Thankfully, it's not beyond repair.

all main characters human in a space opera

generic Ice planet
generic desert plant
generic forest planet

Lucas was bad at directing actors but he knows how to bring a sense of scale and depict alien imagery, that was the best thing about the prequels

the Force Awakens made me appreciate the prequels for the first time

It's simple, jj is a better director. Period.

JJ made a long TV episode not a full length movie that stands on it's own

when movies like Kill Bill and Matrix 2 had cliffhangers you only had to wait 6-8 months not 2 years

Abrams is solid from a technical perspective, but let's get real here. Half of the praise for his film directing (not TV stuff) comes from stylistically mimicking those he admired during his youth.

A very good editorial on Lucas.

Kreisen3123d ago

JJ Abrams did not make The Force Awakens though, movies are not made by one person. If you do some research Abrams didnt have all that much influence over how The force awakens would turn out, Disney had an astronomical number of people work on these films. There were multiple directors, multiple producers etc etc.

Its not like with say James Cameron and Avatar where practically everything went directly through him.
