Lots of stuff
Plan on seeing it soon, but a few questions.
So you're saying they should have bagged an Hamill, Fisher, & Ford and just run with an all new cast? That was my original contention. It will be interesting to see how they're integrated.
Also, you weren't impressed by the music? Isn't the music from this mashup from The Force Awakens? It gave me chills.
Plot holes, unfortunately, are a hallmark of Abrams movies. Hope they're not Prometheus or Into Darkness level ruinous.
As for too much homage to the original, this is why I despised Jurassic world earlier this year. Hopefully it's not too bad.
Remember, Disney bought this franchise from a desire to do good. But through them it wields a power too great and terrible to imagine...
Oh, wait. Wrong franchise reference. Never mind.
I enjoyed the film but I'm a fan of Abram's movies, Star Trek 09 is one of my favorite movies. This movie isn't as good as that one but it's pretty good. If you're an Abrams hater, yeah he made this movie in his style, so there won't be any pleasing you.
It's essentially a retelling of A New Hope. I like it in spite of that but it's a real mark against it in my book. However, I've always been a character over story guy and this has great characters.
The music in that trailer is mostly rehashed original scores. Williams hasn't produced anything memorable since the 90's and it's no different here. The only good parts of the score are when he's remixing his old stuff. It's not a bad score, like most Zimmer crap, it's just not memorable.
I like the originals but don't consider them great like so many fans do.
"Pants! Pants! Pants!"
