Everything is a Remix: The Force Awakens

I loved Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I felt it was a wonderful return to form for Star Wars. I could see that there were many similarities with A New Hope, but I had no problem with that. It was a great way to bring back the magic of the films, that had been missing (although was in the various animated TV shows) in the prequels, and show what was so good with the original films. It then builds on that solid foundation.

Kirby Ferguson has done another Everything Is A Remix for the film and has some excellent points.

The remix method of copying, transforming and combining is definitely used in The Force Awakens, as well as the other works of JJ Abrams. Is remixing a weak point in The Force Awakens? Is the remix method growing stale? Have we reached the limits of remixing?
