LOL!!!

I'd love to see Whedon do something. Not sure if it's SW, but I love most of his stuff lately.

I'm REALLY not sure about Abrams. I think it would be a disservice to compare his future Star Wars work with what he's already done. I think you have to give the man a chance to do what he can do with it. Other than Michael Bay, most directors can do different things.

And I thought Abrams was great in the ST movies.

Also you have to compare what the future SW films might be compared with what the most recent 3 were like. I think I have reason to be hopeful.

As long as we are throwing out names, I'd love to see a Quentin Tarantino SW. Did you know that on Tatooine they call a Big Mac a Juicy Hutt?

If Joss Whedon had directed Star Wars, all of the Storm Troopers would have dropped dead after the Death Star was destroyed. Not sure I can stand behind that for a new episode.

What about James Cameron?
Stormtroopers could all be 9ft tall and blue kind of like smurfs on hyper growth hormone!

I'd say Star Wars. Just way more stuff going on like the vehicles, weapons and THE FORCE!

I love Whedon and everything he's done, but I don't know that I'd want him doing such a loved franchise as Star Wars. He did well with Avengers I think, but Whedon normally shines with his own universe. And that normally means something you love is going to die.

I.E. (spoiler alert to Netflix users):
Buffy: Anya, Buffy (several times), Tara, Joyce (Buffy's mom), Jenny Calendar, Kendra, Spike (back in Angel)
Angel: Wesley, Gunn, Doyle, Fred, Cordelia
Firefly/Serenity: Sheperd, Wash
Dollhouse: Topher, November
Cabin in the Woods: absolutely everybody

I do however want to see Whedon either do the Thrawn trilogy or Krytos Trap series, especially Krytos. I think he'd be better with a lesser known set of characters and a government conspiracy.

So I heard some news outlet today talking about Abrams being the next director of Star Wars, and one of the anchors said something to the effect of, "Star Wars fans hate Star Trek fans and vice versa". That's actually one of the reasons I started this thread. I love Star Trek, but think Star Wars is excellent too. Sure my loyalties lie with Starfleet, but I can definitely acknowledge the great story Star Wars has to offer. I don't hate Star Wars at all. I wanted to see what this forum thought on the matter, and we're almost to 300 posts and not a belligerent word has been said. Sure we all share a common hobby...maybe we aren't indicative of the population as a whole. Maybe homebrewers are more level headed people.

Anyway, I originally posted this thread to drunken ramblings for a reason. I love brewing and drinking my own beer and I love Star Trek.
