I'm guessing there's something else in the OP that I can't see from work.

Two films I want to see around the same time, and it's a few years since I've been to the cinema. I'm not even pessimistic and cynical about the Star Wars one (although the prequels have nicely lowered expectations there).

Quantum of Solace, I haven't been able to sit through the whole thing, and I haven't seen Skyfall yet. But bringing back Spectre should be good - some themes along the lines of the global elite in there!

Star Wars, this new one has the old ships, and characters in there, so it will appeal to that nostalgic desire.

I remain hopeful!

New Star Wars = utter drivel. They have even made it more diverse deliberately and added in the usual diversity/left wing/feminist nonsense where none existed in the original Star Wars films.

It is just another vehicle to ram home the diversity/left wing agenda.

Be prepared to now answer several posts by saying "Yes I've never seen Star Wars"

I suspect this may be a reference to the TV panel show "I've never seen Star Wars", but I've never seen that either.

Maybe wait till you've seen it?

How do you know without seeing it? You're not one of those taking offence at more black people being in it are you?

Abrams appears to have absolutely nailed the look and feel that makes the original films so appealing. Probably something to do with using real sets and puppets. Kasdan has written the screenplay, so I'm expecting good things.

Looks like it from the trailers (although there's also a bit of excessive Abrams lens flare in there). I've a bit of a concern that he might be trying too hard there (another desert planet?) but I'm excited and positive about this right now, and that's not a normal state of mind for me towards, well, anything.

His ethnicity is not revealed in the original films, in the later films, Jango Fett was played by Temuera Morrison. He is of Māori, Scottish, and Irish descent. His young clone Bobba Fett is played by Daniel Logan. He is also of mixed Māori descent.

Bond's been utter sh1te for years, ever since John Barry stopped doing the music.

I think it's been mostly s*** since Connery left, the pattern seems to be the first film for a particular actor is promising but then they are let down by increasingly bonkers scripts after then.

Goldeneye was decent enough but the rest of Brosnan's films garbage, Casino Royale ok but could've lost the last 1/2 hour, Q.o.S was made in a middle of a writers strike (!) and is almost unwatchable, Skyfall has some good ideas but the plot as a whole doesn't make much sense.

mostly shit, but then again 90% of films are...at least with bond, you know you are going to laugh, be amazed and facebalm...guaranteed...except Quantum of Solace which due to the rapid cuts all the way through make it unwatchable.

I have tried three times to watch Quantum of Solace

As Goat says above it was made in the middle of the writers strike. I believe Daniel Craig has said they made bits of it up on set. It did have Olga Kurylenko in it however so it wasn't all bad.

Seeing Spectre on Monday night.

Planning to see Star Wars on 17th December as I'll be off work.

If they want to show diversity then they could start with having the courage to not dub over west-country accents in the films!

[edit - found this

. They should have got a deeper west country accent - would have been more scary]

The point about the first Bond film of an actor being the best is a good one, and something I've often thought. As a set of films Dr. No (actually I'd put from Russia with Love in here), OHMSS, Live and Let Die, Living Daylights, GoldenEye and Casino Royals is pretty strong. Live and Let Die is ripe for a remake IMO.
