See, I still haven't seen the film but I'm not at all averse to spoilers so I read that.

And I really didn't like it. There were some good points hidden in amongst the rant, especially about the lack of women that is utterly baffling, but at multiple points I found myself wandering if/when she'd ever watched the original trilogy. *

knowing that you can appear briefly in a Star Wars film and it means that you might have you face grafted onto a CGI frame long after your death

I would hardly call Cushing's appearance in the original film "brief", he was one of the main antagonists. There were multiple other points, the very idea that because it's set at roughly the same time as another film means it's "nothing fans haven't seen before" is laughable. If I've watched Kelly's Heroes that means I don't need to watch Saving Private Ryan? Or even Schindler's List?

It's a shame, because the good points made were hidden amongst the way off the mark points.

*LJ appear to have made even more interesting UI choices, if you hit the "quote" button it submits the comment if you've nothing highlighted, hence the edit, sorry.
