So, I think the lightsaber looks cool and all, but, I do want to point out that you couldn't actually use those sidesabers to block like a crossguard.
 
The little hilt nubs stick out near the top of the main hilt.  Those aren't made of energy.  A lightsaber would cut right through them.  You strike blades with him, and then you just bring your blade down, and then no more "crossguard," leaving sith-y with a fairly broken, maybe still functional, pretty standard lightsaber with a grip that you'd better be very careful with lest you stick it into the beam.

BUUUUUT.  Could be very useful in all those close quarter Jedi / Sith and / or Dark Jedi fights when they're striking sabers and grunting at each other, because then all of a sudden you can have your hilt spring a lightsaber into their face.

i'm sure i would just lightstab myself in the chest with those side glowy thingies, but i guess that's why i'm not a jedi or sith or whatever

I like how the force was some mystical thing in the earlier movies and is now just an excuse to make crazier looking space swords.

That lightsaber looks dumb as fuck. It already is a weapon you can maim and kill yourself with very easily, but you couldn't amputate the hand you hold it with. Now you can. Meh. Certainly wouldn't want to do any overhead swings with that thing.

Then again, wtf am I doing nitpicking Star Wars.

It's funny that the standard for both Wars and Trek is now "please just give us something we can watch, dear god".

Not a big SW fan but I'm sure this will be a decent Abrams "nothing but action keep moving keep pushing don't stop or they'll notice the script sucks" blockbuster.

That Sith is Adam Driver, right? Dudes physical acting is off the charts. Swagging through the forest like a demonic presence, hobbled and hunched over because he had too many souls for breakfast. That's a man on the come up for sure.

People hold the classics to this super high standard but even the originals weren't that great. They were fun, cool and didn't look like anything else at the times when they originally hit. People just want fun and cool scifi how is that bad? Space samurais are cool and evil space samurais are even cooler.

Not wanting to see the same factions, planets, characters/actors, time period etc= super high standard :comeon ..... That (sorta) applies to abrams trek too.

I didn't know not wanting to see more of the same was holding shit to a super high standard. It's just lame cause they have a whole universe (literally lol) to play around with setting wise, and .... :yeshrug

We're getting new characters and I'm sure we'll get new worlds too. This first film most likely just a bridge. You bring them in with some thing(s) old before you hit them with something new. A spoon full of sugar and all that. I'm optimistic about the next films (and this one!)

yeah it's understandable why you'd start with the familiar before jumping into fresher stuff.  disney plans to make yearly star wars films, jumping between spinoff and mainline.  I don't think it's going to be the third trilogy.

The only good part of Episode 3 was Ian McDiarmid's performance as Palpatine. Other than that it was the exact some fucking bullshit. I mean I GUESS it's the best of the three, but that's pretty faint praise.

Because that was his original vision for the movie, he just didn't have the technology back in 1977 to make rocks.

Because R2-D2 is supposed to be hiding. Thats how you make it obvious that he's hiding.

Naw, the redlettermedia boys nailed it: this is just hype building for a built-in audience. Its working on me, though I honestly think its going to be about as forgettable as JJs Star Trek reboot -- fun fan service, but nothing else.

Id love to be wrong, but will be satisfied if Im right.

Well, at least Ill be more satisfied than when I was driving home from an opening-day showing of Episode I at 03:00, wondering what the fuck had just happened.

Well everything I've seen from JJ has been serviceable, but lacking. Beyond the mess that is Into Darkness, 09 was an ok movie. Good scenes and action, but nothing more then an enjoyable one time movie. Same with MI3(though PSH helped a rather typical movie bad guy).

There's nothing wrong with JJ movies. They hit the right note mostly, but really never in some interesting way. They all seem safe which is strange for a person who is supposedly the "nerd done good" and a person with actual clot. His things feel creatively workmanlike.

Doesn't help that Star Wars dosen't feel special anymore. Between the terrible prequels and soon to be over saturation, the universe and the property has lost whatever mystique it had. It feels very been there done that to me these days. I mean I'll be happy to see a continuation of the saga, but honestly star wars was fine when it was just three movies and these side things that where there if you wanted them.

I thought MI3 was the best of the series. Probably one of my favorite movies that year.
I think pretty much all the MI movies are ok.

The 1st is fun because it's crazy and I remember it having a hot chick as a kid. It's probably the best actual "spy" movie of the series.

The 2nd had thandie newton and some extreme over the topness so it was fun.

The 3rd, well I remember Phillip Seymour Hoffman being creepy and the missile bridge scene. That's it though. I remember it kind of just ending.

The 4th, cool set pieces. The Call of Duty like movie.
