A daunting task indeed with the same SJW Disney execs breathing down your neck trying to destroy the franchise

Early reviews are mostly positive.

The one's partially critical only say that it starts a little slow but gets good by the second act.

Think he’s a director that can do the job.

Should've asked Lucas to step in and direct... lol

Sure he popular, but he's no Stanley Kubrick. Just a run of the mill director for the masses.

Howard has no individual signature in his movies, except for those annoying and predictable overplayed crescendos.

Journeyman director who is surely up to the job of reproducing all theb Star Wars clichés.

Plus why does he never take his stupid baseball cap off?

I think it will be popcorn entertainment but perhaps not up to the standards of the last 3. I hope to be proven wrong on my viewing...

And why do we get it a month later, the other Star Wars films always get the same release here as the rest of the world?

I'm optimistic. We know it can't be worse than the last one.
