I'm going to assume that it won't be any better than his terrible Star Trek reboot -- which took every piece of canon from that universe, and re-wrote it, to worse effect. The one thing I liked about the first one was the addition of Winona Ryder. Other than that, I thought it sucked. I also wish that certain actors could gracefully exit the show/movie, instead of having about 5 different "farewell" cameos, appearances, and whatever.
The Spock character's story should have ended in the TNG episode "Unification." When Picard and Spock mind-meld. The end.
But no, they had to re-write all of Star Trek history in order to bring Spock back for one more action-packed appearance. Please.
The best farewell cameo was Dr. "Bones" McCoy in the first episode of the next generation.
To be honest, I still haven't watched the second newest Star Trek JJ Abram lame-fest. And I have zero desire to do so.
Therefore, I have no interest at all in the upcoming Star Wars. (What has the world come to.) It would be like watching Terminator 3 again, or Terminator Salvation, or Alien 3, or any other franchise film that was passed on to directors who aren't on the same page, and basically have less talent.
What do you guys think?
With Star Trek I'm sort of used to the gradual demise in quality... what with the entire shebang reaching it's zenith with Deep Space Nine season six, and then slowly dwindling from there (Voyager was decent, but Enterprise was lame).
I just think it's going to be a bigger shock when people are submitted to what will be JJ Abrams Star Wars... without any grace period, or buffer, in order to cushion the shock of how sucky it will be. Some may argue that the Star Wars prequels were the preparation for what's to come... but I doubt it. I think we're in a for a whole new level of suckiness.
Just my two cents.
