Anghus Houvouras on why we don't need Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VII....

There may not be a Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VII... and I'm fine with that.

No doubt you've heard the news: according to Samuel L. Jackson, J.J. Abrams has not been in contact with Mark Hamill about using him in Episode VII.  The fallout was typical.  Everybody starts screaming foul and declares the entire production to be an unsalvageable wreck before principal photography has even begun.

You gotta love the internet.  When they go scorched earth, they don't leave a single solitary inch of real state unscathed.

J.J. Abrams is such an interesting creative conundrum.  Based on his two Star Trek films, there shouldn't be a single solitary surprise coming our way.  The man has managed to deliver two extremely entertaining movies that somehow simultaneously gush with fan service and yet seem hell bent »
