All Right, Fine, Here's What I Think About JJ Abrams Directing Star Wars Episode VII
It'll be fine. Really.
One, JJ Abrams is a perfectly decent director, who does a decent job with human beings, which is more than you can say about the last dude who directed a Star Wars film.
Two, as Super 8 made explicitly clear, Abrams thinks of himself as being in the Spielberg school of filmmaking, i.e., make it entertaining or go home.
