The teaser could have did without the VO. The droid borders on cute/stupid. The Millennium Falcon stirred up something in me. Modern film owes half of it's success to John Williams. The VFX so far look fan generated.
JJ has an awesome ability to setup a film but he misses the soul of the story.
Star Trek was all an action movie. It completely lost the soul of Star Trek which about this optimistic view of humanity and the pure elements of science and exploration.
Super 8 never really nailed down the innocence of childhood. I mean the movie is called Super 8 and they don't get that film developed until the end of the film? The train should have crashed and the next thing that happens in the story should have been the kids getting that film back and trying to tell people in the town that there is a monster loose. But of course nobody believes them because they make monster movies! Then they have to go find the monster and it's ugly but friendly ala ET and they don't get split up and stick together for their adventure ala Goonies.
So I fear we will see a lot of cool stuff in this new film but it's not going to come together the way Joss Whedon can pull a bunch of story threads together for an awesome story arc and ultimate ending.
But only time will tell.
I want to see a lot of Luke Skywalker kicking ass. I think Mark Hamill is an excellent actor. It would be fantastic to see him take Luke and really do something awesome with the character. Han should sacrifice himself in this episode. Then Luke should in the next film.
Thanks for reading my rant.
