another good one! it’s like i can replace any star wars noun with a j.j. abrams noun and it’s a topical joke
anyway, in case you hadn’t heard, it’s true. i wasn’t crazy about abrams’ star trek, but it’s not really his fault. TOS was never really my thing, and i felt like the movie was counter to everything i like about star trek — except what i liked about star trek (talky, philosophical space melodrama) was killing the franchise. it just didn’t feel like my star trek anymore. it felt like slickly-written fanfic dressed up with some action sequences thrown on top because talking is boring.
that said, that’s exactly what i like about star wars, so he’s a good fit and will probably kill it
