    I will like not to see this movie at all. It is so unecessary that they might as well have made a movie about how Vader is going to the bathroom. :rolleyes: First of all this movie not only looks terrible but also have bad actors in it. Second of all the teaser sucks major ass. Some things are better left to the imagination and this is one of them.
    They are not getting my hard earned money for this crappy looking thing.

    People have different views i guess, personally im excited about what this movie CAN be.. i think finally a movie where we wont hear the Skywalker, Solo and jedi names come up.. Im just glad someone else out there realises that the Star Wars universe is bigger than what we have already seen.

    But by reading your post im guessing your not a fan of Clone Wars and Rebels cartoons also? and things better left to the imagination just reminds me of the prequel movies trying to explain EVERYTHING.

    There’s a grain of truth to it. Midichlorians *shudder* - I definitely don't want to see (or hear about) those again.

    Hopefully this “war” movie doesn’t take it’s time with too much explicit explanations, but gets straight to the action. But I’m confident it won’t.

    I don't want to see the Rogue Squadron die entirely. Killing everyone is lazy storytelling, not to mention this "dark and gritty" thing is more like a gimmick for immature audiences, rather than good storytelling. Yes, deaths are inevitable in such a story and there should exist, but all of them is overkill and predictable and it makes us not give a damn for the team, which is not what this story should be. Let one or two (maximum) members of the team carry the weight of survival and the trauma. It's more realistic and it opens a good opportunity for talented, mature authors who know how to deal with character development and trauma to tell these stories further. The dead will never be interesting again, after all.

    Make us care for these characters before you kill them. A movie where the deaths are shocking just because a. they're deaths and b. they're ugly/horrifying/gruesome is still a lazy, bad movie with sub par storytelling. The good deaths are the one that are shocking because this particular character that we came to care about is dying, not just because a death is happening.

    For the above to happen, you need good characters. Not in their alignment (good-evil), but of good quality. It means three-dimensional and dynamic. I don't want to see the only characters who die be the two-dimensional ones. Or, keep the characters who will die two-dimensional (or even one-dimensional) on purpose, because hey, they will die, no need to put effort into them, right? No, I don't want to see this (which is why, I think, the re-shoots are happening; this director does not make good character stories).

    Keep both Fett and Han out of the movie. Don't even mention them. They're irrelevant.

    Put Vader in, but don't overuse them. We have the OT and the TV series for this.

    Don't put gore in the movie. Deaths, horrifying deaths are more effective when they're implied and your mind fills the blanks. The shocking scenes from movies that we remember are the ones who count on atmosphere, directing and performance and not gore.

    I disagree on this one for some cases: If you want to show the sheer horror of the Omaha beach landing, do it as in ‘Saving Private Ryan’. For such a situation, just relying on implied brutality to show the real MG42 fire effect on the troops wouldn’t come near what they tried to tell in that movie. Sometimes, blood and gore is part of a certain type of storytelling if used correctly.

    But of course, in Star Wars, this won’t happen for a long time.
