Just read this and if he can bring to the Star Wars series what he did for the Star Trek series, we could be in for some really good SciFi. I think most people feel that I, II and III don't measure up to IV, V and VI so he's hoping.

Is this going to be -1 or 7?

what he did for Star Trek is to render everything that came before null and void. i suppose doing the same for Star Wars wouldnt be such a bad thing as George Lucas effectively killed that franchise years ago...

"JJ Abrams is science fiction for people who like Jay Leno... at the height of mediocrity"

I didn't find that in the Star Trek movie. The trekies at the conventions loved it and you would think they would be the worst critics. I felt he breathed life back into the Star Trek francise. After movies like Nemesis, Generations and Insurection this franchise needed a jump start.

no argument there. it was the best Star Trek movie in... well ever! the problem i had with it is that it makes everything prior irrelevant.

I'm not following how. It is a prequel to all the other movies as far as a timeline.

it changed the Star Trek history. all that we know of it never happens in JJ's version.

Well it will be interesting to see how he's handling the next movie.
