    Or maybe it was just really damn hard to track a lightsaber at high speeds with 1970s technology

    That Zatoichi Challenged scene was awesome.

    As an expert LARPer, the the swordfighting in that asian clip is bogus. This is somewhat realistic:

    Thank goodness for that. I have no doubt that scene was meticulously choreographed and rehearsed, but it was hokey, unconvincing, and irritating to watch.

    A thousand Swedes ran out of the weeds, chased by one Norwegian.

    Meh. Caring less and less. BB-88 looks like shit, and I expect it will occupy half the screen time. Gotta sell those toys. Why the fuck would this series need more droids? Fucking garbage.

    I haven't bought my tickets for the new one yet, but I will.
    In the meantime, I watched A New Hope and part of ESB over thanksgiving and just forced myself to watch a three hour fan edit of I-III to make sure I was caught up on basic plot points - the dialog in Ep. III is scary awful. If Abrams does a good job with VII it might be a good idea to go back and remake I-III so there is a decent version of the back story and Lucas's versions could then be trashed. There is a decent story to be told about the fall of the Republic, the rise of Palpatine and the turning of Annakin Skywalker. It is a pity it hasn't been done yet.

    But it's a slight variation on something that's already been done better. Isn't that what you want???
