Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Why Does Everyone Love J.J. Abrams?

star wars j.j. abrams

From Star Trek and Star Wars to Lost and Fringe, this celebrated film and television writer/producer/director is on a bit of a roll.

This week on Now Conspiring, Maria and I breakdown the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We also discuss Abrams’ best projects and why he’s managed to cement himself as one of the most important directors of our time, and whether or not his success will continue.

Plus, we do a roundup of some incredible Oscar contenders that will be releasing soon, including Angelina Jolie’s second directorial gig: the WWII epic, Unbroken, and why should love it as much as we do.

Hope you enjoy the show, and be sure to subscribe to us on iTunes for instant access to available episodes. Enjoy!

  1. I think people just mostly like that he’s not George Lucas.

    • You sir, are a genius.

  2. Glad to hear this is now on iTunes! Congrats guys.

  3. Abrams is just good at making movies. Plain and simple. He’s not the best director ever, but he can take a good foundation for a story, insert some vision, and elevate it. That’s why people enjoy his work.

  4. I really wish they would’ve gone with another director to be honest. No offense to Abrams.

  5. I wouldn’t say “everyone” loves JJ. He’s just loved by enough people it seems.
