How could I miss this news? Marvel and Star Wars every year until we are all dead. Or the robots take over!

On the one hand, it's nice that these new movies will feature original characters in a new setting.

On the other hand, I am sick of Star Wars.

We all knew that the company that brought us Poca-freakin-hantas 3 and Cinderella 4 was going to take thing to an obscene level never before seen. ;) The marketing and money making juggernaut here is unprecedented. :lol:

OK, when we were kids we did have a Flash Gordon movie and a Buck Rogers TV show (and of course Bond sequels), but at least Flash and Buck were presented in a re-imagined style (and, for all their faults, were at least fun and entertaining).

Today, everything -- particularly Star Wars -- has become so formulaic, and dour. Plus the original Star Wars was not just an adventure movie, it was also very funny. Was there a single moment of humor in The Force Awakens (much less Rogue One)?

I'll give you Rogue One, but The Force Awakens was FULL of humor. :? I remember lots of big laugh reactions from the audience when i saw it on opening day.

I remember one gag, when the "garbage" ship turns out to be the Millennium Falcon. I don't recall much else that was funny.

I only saw it once of course, but what stuck in my mind was that the film was pretty downbeat -- billions of people dying when their planet is destroyed, the victory of the Rebel Alliance over the Empire having been for nothing, the Jedi being extinct, and Han Solo murdered by his own son. For me that movie was a real downer.
