Yes. That's what I use myself. But not sure if everyone uses the full editor (or those who do it on mobile devices).

Hmm. This article raises some very interesting insights about the Star Wars vehicle - as in, what George Lucas had and how it could have been done so much better.

I also found this image very amusing, so I thought I'd share. Enjoy! 8-)

Well George Lucas had no hand in The Force Awakens. By this point, he had washed his hands of Star Wars after selling it for a very healthy sum to Disney.

All right, I guess I forgot about that. :oops: Don't mind me. *goes to sit in the corner* :(

I just thought it was an interesting "what if" scenario that was being raised. I haven't seen the film, myself. From what I understand, it was typical Hollywood - i.e. a bunch of explosions and not much plot. ;)

There can be explosions and a plot too. Case and point, The Force Awakens. :)

It was fantastic. Everything a SW movie should be. It didn't have that epic scale feel, but that's ok because it wasn't trying to compete with the originals, which works I its favour. JJ went about this in exactly the right ways. The only things I had an issue with was that the score, though by Williams once again, didn't really have any memorable themes outside of the familiar reprises we had before. But that's Abrams' direction.

I'm going to see it again today for the third time.

Amen. I am on my 4th viewing myself.

Here's a link to our episode about the movie, for any who might be interested in checking it out (and if you enjoyed it, please share on Facebook, Twitter, etc!)
