Still not liking the idea of Luke being in exile. It goes against what was set up in RotJ. The 'return' of the Jedi. Teaching others what he has learned.

Also, I could do without the tiresome prequel stab in every single article.

Even for someone like me that doesn't love the prequels, it has gotten pretty tiresome how hope for TFA is being played against disappointment from the PT. Especially because there's a lot of revisionist history here: so many of these publications and blogs were pretty positive on the prequels when they were released and now they rail against them because it makes for a better story. Just be real - don't give in to hate just because it's what you think your readers want.

The Empire article was way, way overhyped. Entertainment Weekly got the good stuff a few weeks back.

Right. That's been pretty surprising. I guess feeding what they believe the "general fanbase" and audiences in general want to hear.

I love the practical look and feel of the OT, so philosophically I'm happy they're making a stronger effort to go as practical as they can, but this doesn't automatically translate to it being a better movie.

I remember Lucasfilm using the same marketing line for Indy 4: "old fashion stunt work! No silly CG, Going practical like the 80s!" etc, and it turned out that Indy 4 was PACKED with unnecessary and awful CGI. It literally killed the movie.

I disagree about Indy 4, but the truth is that the prequels were filled with pratical effects/sets/props, even more so than the OT, but they like to claim they are returning to something that was never gone to begin with. I could almost forgive if this came from the press, but no. It came from Lucasfilm itself.

The ridiculousness of their marketing reached a point where they claimed "We are in a desert. A real desert."

The swipes at the prequels have gotten silly, but I wouldn't get too worked up over them. The "Look! Practical effects! And they're done practically!" marketing speak is geared more towards winning over the general public than the hardest of the hardcore Star Wars fans will go see the film no matter what.

Hardcore fans know that Eps. I-III utilized a ton of practical sets, effects and miniatures, but the general perception of those movies has devolved into "Everything was CGI and CGI sucks." If you're in Lucasfilm's position, you're better off riding the "Yeah! Death to CGI! (even though there will be plenty of it in this movie)" bandwagon than trying to re-educate casual viewers about how the Boonta Eve podracing grandstand was created with models.

But I would also think the general public doesn't give a flyin' Bantha turd. :?
