Star Wars TFA "hype"

As a huge Star Wars fan I keep seeing people all over talk about if the film will live up to the hype. Yet I rarely see anyone saying it's going to be the best ever or great. At best you get I hope it doesn't suck. Or can't be worse than the prequels. I know people are excited for the movie but that is different. I'm excited but also scared and worried it might suck. I have hope it will be good.

Does anyone really think it's going to be great?

Anyway rumor has it the one and only full trailer will be released Monday. I hope so I need another fix till Dec. Phone Post 3.0

Having seen just about everything else JJ Abrams has done, my guess is it will be a good popcorn movie.

I doubt it will be great. It will be like all the superhero movies, incredibly generic story, no real twists, just a standard plot movie where no main characters die and you know they won't die. If you thought the avengers was an amazing movie you'll think star wars is too.

IMO it will be like the avengers, 'fun' movie with a generic plot played up because of nostalgia.

Hell that's all I'm hoping for. Lol Phone Post 3.0

I love everything Star Wars. The movies (all of them), the books (just started getting into them), the games, the toys, the TV shows, ect ect.

This movie will be awesome! Phone Post 3.0

I think it has potential to be really good but it's J.J. Abrams so you never know.

I think JJ Abrams is a wee bit overrated.

He's had quite a few stinkers. More than others who tend to get frequently shat on.

Why not appease everyone like Marvel or Pixar movies? Why does it have to be one or the other?

This. It will probably have great effects and action. I'm not expecting a masterpiece. Phone Post 3.0

I've already stated that the movie is going to be awesome. I just find it silly that people hold it up like it should be some ground breaking story or something.

It's Star Wars. It's awesome already. Phone Post 3.0

i'd be disappointed if they didn't take some chances.  They did such a poor job in the prequels - i trust that they want to make something that people will respect now

I miss the 70's and 80's too man. Phone Post 3.0

Other creatures eating humans. The ewoks ate all those dead storm troopers. You bet your ass they were on the menu at the rebel victory party.

A lot of those things happened in the prequels too.

The kids movie argument gets tossed out when people point how fucking horrible the scripts were in the prequels. Other than the human eating ewoks, jar jar, and kid vader, the movies had very adult themes.

You missed my point.

The original Star Wars trilogy had more of an advanced plot line than something like the avengers, and if you can't see that then idk what to tell ya.

The new Star Wars will be closer to the Avengers than the original trilogy, and that's a shame. The original trilogy can be watched more than once, at least for me there is zero motivation to watch the avengers a second time and honestly it gets lost in my mind to better movies, that doesn't happen with the original trilogy.

This thread illustrated my point. One person thinks they will be great, most are a bit hesitant. More wait and see not super high expectations. Phone Post 3.0

You can't be excited for something without some level of expectation that it will be better than mediocre. Seems like you're picking nits over semantics.

Sure I can. I'm excited for football season every year. But don't have expectations for Mt teams because they usually aren't great.

I have a Star Wars room in my house. I love Star Wars but am nervous about the new movie. But I'm excited for a new movie. Phone Post 3.0
