I don't think the stupidity of one lightsaber design is the herald of the end of the franchise. The CGI in the trailer is obvious but not distractingly bad (lookin' at you, Episode II), and honestly I really like Abrams' weirdass cinematography and crazy camera work. After an honestly pretty terrible trailer that gives no relevant information besides "it's another Star Wars movie," seeing that shot of the Falcon actually has me somewhat excited.

I think a key thing to keep in mind here is that it is not 1980 anymore. Audiences have changed, and in order to actually make any kind of fiscal return on their investment they're going to have to cater to a wide audience. The people expecting it to be just like Empire really need to get realistic.

Look at Abrams' first Star Trek film. It... really wasn't anything LIKE Star Trek, at least in terms of the previous movies and tv shows. But if you stop comparing it to the original and appreciate that it's 2009 not 1969, then you can actually enjoy the film for what it is. Can't in good conscience say the same about Into Darkness, but what are the go-to criticisms? It's TOO MUCH like Khan, too SIMILAR. That there are vast differences between what we see here and what we expect to see as fans of the original trilogy is, in my opinion, a really good thing.

But that doesn't mean we can't make fun of the lightsaber for being dumb as hell, or the soccerball droid for almost managing to out-silly the prequels. It's like giggling at the stormtrooper smacking his head on the door in that one scene in IV. Nitpicking the dumb doesn't mean the whole parent work is going to be bad.

I really don't think anyone can legitimately speculate on the final quality of the film based on this trailer, anyway. It gives no information whatsoever about the movie or what happens in it. It's a series of disjointed images taken completely out of context. It's just supposed to get people talking... and most people want to talk about the dumb lightsaber.

There's absolutely no practical benefit to having a crossguard made of sabers. If it's defensive, then it's either redundant (assuming the emitters are saber-proof) or completely ineffective (assuming they aren't). If it's offensive, then... somehow he has to get himself into a situation where it's a good idea to have a tiny little saber sticking out from essentially the same place as the main blade, but on a right angle. Like, I get it, Maul had a double-bladed one because fighting with something that can do damage at both ends is a less elegant but more brutish way of fighting. Fine.

But any situation where those little blades would actually be in a position to DO anything, the main blade would actually be more effective. It literally cannot do anything besides accidentally harm the person using it. I'm kind of reminded of that picture illustrating Windows operating systems in terms of hammers, with Vista being a hammer with a head at both ends of the stick and 8 having a single head and two sticks coming off it. This lightsaber, if it were a hammer, would be like having a perfectly good regular hammer... with two stupid little heads sticking off the side of the stick at right angles. Yeah, sure, you COULD pound nails by swinging the hammer sideways, but any potential precision you'd gain is offset by the fact that your handgrip is 90 degrees away from where it should be and you've got a huge heavy mass right above the thing you're actually trying to swing. In every conceivable scenario, it makes more sense to just spin it around the right way and bang with your main hammer head. Except you've got these stupid auxiliary heads throwing off the weight distribution and making the whole thing clumsy.

The only reason you'd ever have a saber like this is because you think it looks badass and cool... but it doesn't, it makes you look like a bad fanfiction writer who doesn't understand that the coolest thing about lightsabers is their elegant simplicity.

you make a strong point. was just trying to salvage some hope for my own benefit, I just cant bare the thought that star wars may be brutally slugged with a planet sized fist unwittingly wielded by jj abrams. thinking about it they may only be useful if they are detachable, then they could be used as shoto-esque lightsabers as was done by sora bulq at times. oh god don't let this be the death of the franchise

*picrelated* Well im not sure you'll like the advice, but depending on the area you live in there are sometimes professional clinics/ workers whose job it is to help people deal with depression issues. A lot of times these counselors can be seen for little to no cost deppending on your financial situtation. Now im not saying that medication is the answer, but sometimes it does help people to help fight the chemical imbalance in your brain which can be a major problem with lots of people who are depressed. The worse thing you can do is not seek help at all. A good support website I've heard of is To write love on her arms twloha.com/, for clinical information try (very dry reading but lots of useful info) www.nami.org/Template.cfm?Section=Depression&Template=/ContentManagement/ContentDisplay.cfm&ContentID=90274, this is Staten island based but has some good info on seeking professional help in general (if you're in the states anyway) www.freedomfromfear.org/FindingTreatment.en.html. Outside of the US im not sure of the options available but normally most people don't want you to suffer alone and you have options. Im not a Dr. I'm a fucking mechanic, when my wife's in the mood anyway, but i do know if you have a problem with your vehicle or yourself and you can't fix it on your own to seek help from someone. It's cliche, but shit will get better. And even if it doesn't seem like it, there are people in this world who love you and would love to see you happy. Hang in there my fellow FJ'er.
