I didn’t like the times when JJA played tricks on the audience:
- Nose of Star Destroyer that has the silhouette of an X-wing
- Hologram that we are not supposed to think is a hologram when we first see it.
Yes, there are several times in the old movies when the audience is tricked … but only because we are following a character that himself is tricked.
The gimmicks in TFA were just that: gimmicks. Gimmicks like that don’t belong in Star Wars.
