Star Wars VII
Against my better judgment I saw it tonight, and my Better Judgment was right. Vapid script, vapid plot (pretty much the same as in the 1977 Film), characters so vapid that when they die you count them lucky that they don't have to endure another sequel. Even the special effects were hardly an advance over the laser and noise spectacle of the Initial Film. The one good thing about the new Star Wars is that J. J. Abrams was wise enough not to let Mark Hamill act.
