It is ill mannered at best.

Theater captioning is rarely adequate)
One quick [non-spoiler?] question: Is it a remake? Or is it another in the
"series"? (if so, earlier? later?)
I just saw it last night for the first time, and since then I've been
reading reviews (which I was avoiding before). It seems to be the
concensus (and I agree) that it's somewhere in between a sequel and a
reboot/remake. It definitely has a lot of elements parallelling the
first movie, but on the other hand it clearly takes place after Return
of the Jedi and has some of the same characters in appropriately older
I've seen some lousy remakes of good movies, and then the original is
virtually never seen again. OTOH, there have been SOME OK remakes that were
better than mediocre movies they were based on. I just wish that remakes
would have some sort of designation in the title that makes the original and
the remake differentiable by more than copyright date.
When is the "Casablanca" remake due out?
