Jj Abrams Star Wars: Rxns

evaluting jj abrams, wondering how this shitshow will turn out
1 Fringe
Creator, occasional writer


Fringe was incredible and some of that has to be due to Abrams, as he co-created
the show with the guys who did transformers/startrek09. However, it is worth
mentioning that all the eps he wrote were in the first season (excepting the 2nd
season premiere)... the show evolved so much since then, so its tough to figure
out how much impact he actually had.
2 Lost
Creator, "story"


Abrams was part of lost when it was ambitious and interesting. True, he jumped
ship before the show picked up momentum, but them: THAT MOMENTUM ENDED UP
BEING A HUGE FUCKING LIE. If you look at lost's first season as a single-arc'd
miniseries, it's pretty damn good. SO idk here either.
3 Felicity
Alias


these were pretty cool i guess but i never fucked with them so dont care
4 Joy Ride
co-writer


sorta underrated paul walker/steve zahn thriller.
5 Armageddon
co-writer (with a buncha people)


wow talk about a movie where the script means NOTHING
6 MI:III
Director/Writer


gets a lot more credit than it should... it's marginally better than MI:2. The whole
MI franchise sorta sucks tho so not his fault.
7 Cloverfield
Producer


This was legit. I dug this movie enough that i didnt even care about the
characters being supremely unlikable.
8 Super 8
Director, writer, producer whatever


This is his best film easy. Nice story, script moves nicely... this is also I think the
only time something pure-abrams was able to pull off anything remotely resembling
emotion onscreen
9 Trek 09
he didn't write this


Solid action movie. Not sure if i should respect him for making a fun sci-fi actioner
or revile him for watering down star trek (and ensuring future iterations of watered-
down star trek). the main reason im not sure is because i dont really care about
star trek.
10 Morning Glory
producer


This movie was atrocious
11 Ghost Protocol
produced


it was boring and i didnt care what happened
12 but back to fringe
fringe was so good
13I sorta feel like season 4 was the real "final season"
14And this season was just like a nice little epilogue


like just something for the fans to enjoy, tying up unimportant loose ends.
15 Love this scene tho
love it so hard
