Re: J.J. Abrams to Direct Star Wars: Episode VII - Here's Why We're Optimistic

I'm torn on Abrams doing the film. I actually quite liked his reboot of the Star Trek series (or parallel universe to it if that appeases the more die hard Trekkies), and thought Super 8 was a fun film, but I still wish Joss Whedon was chosen. /sigh

That said, if JJ wants to win some fans back, he could always have Jar Jar's head on a spike in a scene somewhere. Something to appease and reward those of us that watched (yet alone own) those prequels and their cringe worthy "acting" would be nice.

Plus, as a bass head, some scene with bass like Star Trek wouldn't be too shabby either.

What's sad about the acting is that it came from some of the most intense actors in the industry (Samuel L. Jackson, Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, etc). It's asthough Lucas used his script like a 2x4 to knock any emotion out of the performances.

Lucas has said that he doesn't push the actors to perform or give them a lot of input. He pays them for their abilities and that's how he expects them to perform based on their reputation. That may be a big paraphrase. At any rate , JJ Abrams couldn't possibly do any worse. He couldn't.

We all find what we're looking for, whether we know it or not.
