"Very likeable piece Fred. Is this a small stand alone piece or part of something bigger to come? Great name too. Maybe do a set of these? Dimensions would be another possible name. Well done"

"Its very nice! You capture what u set out to very well I think! I like when the strings come in - the sweetly sad sounds to me sounds like a female there has captured your attention and you are infatuated, but alas you are too drunk...."

"Don't forget that these films are nothing more than Space Westerns. They are all about shoot-outs and show downs. And that no movie gets made unless there is money to come from it. This movie made a lot of money. That said, I liked the film. It…"

"In my opinion everything was handled clumsily. R2-D2 having the important part of the map and just deciding to sleep for a while? That was just lazy writing to solve the partial map problem, which in turn was lazy writing to extend that plot point…"

William Hu replied to Paul Halley's discussion Star Wars 7
"I thought it sucked. It was basically a rehash of old ideas and scenes from the previous six films. There was no creativity concerning the plot. The 'progressiveness' of the film only half worked, as the offhand sexist comments to Ray…"
