I wonder how many people are going to get Plinkett from Red Letter Media making a voice cameo?

I like Honest Trailers, but I wouldn't trust them with... anything really as far as choosing films to see, they're really just trying to be funny (and mostly suceeding in my book, though that one wasn't great).

I mean, if you want to engage in a real conversation about the movie you might want to see the movie.

This mostly rehashes conversations we had here in this thread. There's some connection they try to make between it being a remake of A New Hope and it being bad, but, to quote a different thread, show your work. That's an observation, not an opinion. It's a lot of nit-picking about fan service and Mary Sue's, but there's no real engaging with the film as its own thing. And then it has a whole minute of fan-service of it's own at the end!

Still, if it's really just a rehash of A New Hope, I could safely say that it won't be an urgent viewing any time soon, especially when you're not a hardcore Star Wars fan. The facts presented in the observation is like a bad trailer turning me off from a movie.

And besides, the blu-ray doesn't come out till months later, so there's nothing I can do anyway even if I want to watch it.

There's so many good points in this thread, I'm having a laugh reading it.
