awakens

update:
and now my reactions….

Ive seen the trailer upwards of 100 times now and i’m pretty happy with where this is and what JJ has done so far… that being said I am equally concerned, and will be until mid December 2015..

but quickly

Those Storm Troopers are magnificent, that lid is a great evolution of the iconic helmet. Will be interesting to see how they are used, the opening character apparently waking up in armour is interesting…

Ralph McQuarrie(esque) X Wing Fighters flying low and under the radar was good…. they look sweet…

The unknown Sith Lord got me excited and then his crude light sabre powered up and wow, thats next level – will be interesting to see the sabre hilt used like a traditional broad sword…

But the big moment for me was the Falcon. holy shit. that scene on its own made the trailer for me. I could quite happily watch that for hours.

I think the fact that so much is familiar is a great thing, evolutions of what we know and love is good and at least makes it feel familiar….

bring on the next one

eighty eight

November 25, 2014

Now, I will be the first to admit i got a little too excited when the Phantom Menace released so many years ago and was so bitterly disappointed by the results. So this time I am trying to avoid as much as humanly possible, but given the internet’s galaxy wide reach that is proving much harder / nay impossible to do.

I have managed to avoid a lot, but reading the synopsis of a rumoured those few words got my hairs standing on end and the chills instantly, it took me back to seeing Star Wars for the first time… X-Wings, The Millennium Falcon, and Storm Troopers has got me excited again….

Please let this release in Australia.

Update:
ignore what i said, ’cause this doesn’t really count…. but I read this http://geektyrant.com/news/plot-revealed-for-gareth-edwards-star-wars-spin-off-movie and holy shit that sounds awesome… more Boba Fett is welcomed…

High score
