In all seriousness, I kind of figured this is where they going with this. I like Abrams' three previous films. I like the Star Wars prequels. I don't have a problem with it. I don't have the energy for the inevitable tidal wave of entitled fandamentalist whining this news has unleashed. See it or don't, I really don't give a fuck, and neither, you will find, do most people. If the worst thing that happens to you as an adult is that you don't like a movie, you've still had it disgustingly good. If you can't get over not liking a flick within two years, you don't have enough in your life that takes up your attention.
I've spent enough time in my life whining, sight unseen, about how bad some movie is going to be, only to end up liking it. And the reverse is true, too. I'll just wait and see and if I don't like it, oh, well. I have six other Star Wars movies I like just fine.
