    No, it's that two of the three were made in the 80's and I thought you left that as an indicator to your intent with the post.

    Does anyone of you know who this sith lord is? He seems really ancient/old. According to star wars however there can be only 2 sith lords at any given time. So who is this sith lord who was born after the death of sidious and vader which makes him less than 30 years old? Wait perhaps he was merely made a sith after the death of those two. So it couldd be he is a thousand years old but was only made a sith recently.

    Sigh it was not jarjar binks.

    At various times, there were more Sith than two. (I am not a fanboy, but had a 16 year old fanboy educate me on the intricacies of Sith this week when I was on a Boy Scout camp out). By limiting the number of Sith Lords, each has greater power, or so I was told. It was all Expanded Universe shit and I was only half listening to the the explanation, so Disney can change all of it.

    It's a Te/Fe thing. Te users enjoy the prequels because the total lack of characterization and interpersonal relationship dynamics doesn't bother them. They're more interested in broad, diverse, political dynamics (see also: game of thrones). To Te/Fi users 'more information in general' is more important than how, or how much of it, is presented. I got into an argument with an INTJ over how interesting of a character qui gon jin was. He seemed to have some pretty in depth knowledge on the character after having researched him through means I'm unaware of, and building an idea of the character in his head based on his role, his actions, and so forth. As a derpy Fe user, all I can use to get information on a character is how they interact with other characters. There is so much more of this going on in the Force Awakens than any of the prequels. I think you're generally likely to find the divide between favoring TFA/the original trilogy and the prequels to be along Te/Fi - Fe/Ti lines.

    The Fe part of me was satisfied with the new film (tremendously satisfied), but the Ti/Si part of me was a bit under-stimulated (Abrams is all about the big Se and micro Ti). I liked the light saber battles because they seemed appropriately like a bunch of amateurs beating on each other with strange weapons, but I thought the aerial battles were the same contemporary 'facefucked-with-Se' incomprehensible messes that most other modern CGI fight sequences are made of. When they were boasting a return to retro form with this movie I really hoped they meant it with the action scenes as well as the emotionally resonating scenes (agree that Han's death was not one of these, btw, but there were plenty of smaller yet more impactful ones). I like a chance to understand just wtf is going on, mechanically, in action scenes that involve mechanics. I want to feel the distance between the pilot and his craft, and get a sense of his skill by measuring that distance. A New Hope did a great job of pacing the battle and building tension. Most of the pilots that get killed off (also wish there was much more 'pilots getting engulfed in flames in their cockpits' in the new one) have a few lines of humanizing dialogue before they get killed, so their deaths carry a bit more weight. Example:

    Wedge: "Look at the size of that thing..." (conveys fear/trepidation)
    Captain: "Cut the chatter, Red-2...." (conveys fear/courage/leadership)

    Maybe if Harrison Ford could still act well enough to deliver anything humanizing his death wouldn't have been wasted too.

    It could be a true Sith, the species, who came out of hiding to restore the dark side after palpatine's passing. That's my thought.

    We don't even know why Ren was seduced by the dark side. Maybe they'll elaborate on that in the sequels, but with Anakin, his mother died and he feared losing his wife. He was emotionally tortured and you could see his transition from Jedi to Sith. I don't even recall them offering a reason why Ren chose the dark side. Seems George Lucas was not pleased with the movie either.

    I agree on the Hans Solo thing. That part was weird. Lucas seemed to recant his statements by the way a couple days later. I guess when you sell a business you created for 4 Billion dollars, you can't be too unhappy.

    "I want to clarify my interview on the Charlie Rose Show. It was for the Kennedy Center Honors and conducted prior to the premiere of the film. I misspoke and used a very inappropriate analogy and for that I apologize. I have been working with Disney for 40 years and chose them as the custodians of Star Wars because of my great respect for the company and Bob Iger’s leadership. Disney is doing an incredible job of taking care of and expanding the franchise. I rarely go out with statements to clarify my feelings but I feel it is important to make it clear that I am thrilled that Disney has the franchise and is moving it in such exciting directions in film, television and the parks. Most of all I’m blown away with the record breaking blockbuster success of the new movie and am very proud of (J.J. Abrams) and (Kathleen Kennedy)."

    I think people who enjoy Star Wars will enjoy this film. Doesnt make it a great movie, but it will make it an exceptionally lucerative one.

    The movie was OK. It felt like an adaptation of Star Wars. Threw way too many plot points like the film had to be rushed. It was cute. I found the movie funny because of silly acting.

    Sith lords have had different policies over the years regarding how many of them there could be, and not everyone on the dark side is a Sith Lord.
