I actually trust in Disney in making a good movie.
I enjoyed The Avengers.
And since LucasArts is making it and not Walt Disney picturees.
I fully trust it.

1-3 were pretty bad. No argument. 4-6 were the bomb. No need for 7, what could it possibly be about other than Disney's recent views on having movies be about multi-cultured women have freedom which they corruptly think have been taken away by the evil, stupid, and selfish men.

I'd personallylike to see star wars gaming revived. After the 1st Force Unleashed Lucas Games just fell apart. If i could see anything in the world it would be a new, awesome star wars game that follows the awesomeness of its prodecessor like Jedi Knights and Knights of The Old Republic.

Some want to see the cast of the original trilogy back, at least for some cameos. Others say they should go with completely new characters. What do you guys think?
Title: Re: The Star Wars Thread
Post by: Pinball Wizard on December 09, 2012, 01:40:03 am
I want it to just be Luke teaching new jedi, but has to go on a mission WITHOUT the faggy new jedi they are going to add, Disney comes up with the worst new characters ever, and than after that last animated show for the Clone Wars, I'm starting to have doubts about George Lucas's mind.
Title: Re: The Star Wars Thread
Post by: Rogov on December 09, 2012, 01:47:55 am
Yeah, I really hope Disney doesn't just have their way with the franchise... :-\

I know this is wishful thinking, but I'd like to see them make something that isn't pg-13. Something more mature, darker, grittier, and morally grey, rather than the typical good guys versus bad guys and good guys (should) always win theme. Probably too much to ask of Star Wars, but it would certainly be really compelling.

I grew up watching these movies and I love them to death, but the characters and plot are a bit black and white for my tastes now.

Sorry for being active on the threads that I have previously posted in, and to answer your question:
I am just going on the record to say that the prequels are not bad films they are just so hated because of what they did to the franchise, the prequels were at large about the rise and fall of Darth Vader and mysterious and key element of the original series, so naturally you would expect a great man rise through the ranks of the Jedi just the finally fall into the darkness of the Sith. This great man never turned up to the party, instead we got a cocky, whiny arrogant, little brat who showed no respect or honour for the Jedi teachings or way of life.

Honestly it's a Godsend that George Lucas isn't around to completely screw over these 3 new movies also. I mean these new movies have extreme potential, my main hope is that they don't overdo the CGI *Cough* I-U *Cough*. Personally I didn't mind Episode II and III, both seemed fine to me (Not as good as the originals but still worth watching).

Also I'm actually a big fan of the Animation for the Clone Wars, I'm also sad that it got canceled. But they're making a new one so, cheers!

That seems like silly reasoning to me haha. The Clone Wars is an absolutely pointless war fought between two puppets and their essentially drone armies.  You may love the clones and think they are individuals and whatnot, but order 66 man. That just proves that as much as they may develop their own personalities, and are still basically robots in the flesh.

On the other hand, the Galactic Civil War is a war fought to liberate the galaxy from the Empire, fought by people from many different species and backgrounds fighting something that they know to be evil. Many of the rebels have seen their families/communities/homes destroyed by the Empire, and have seen genocides. To me the Galactic Civil war is so much more real and emotional than the Clone wars.

Plus: This scene was one of the most heart sinking feelings of my childhood.

A few did yes, the story of the ARC troopers is very cool, but they aren't really like the other clones.

How? The Empire exterminated entire populations that fought them, they were incredibly human-centric and xenophobic, used slave labor, destroyed an entire peaceful planet.. I could go on.

Egh, I don't think so, it would be so out of place, pointless, and forced. However it because there is some stuff about Boba and the Mandos, it would be cool to follow the stories of the ARC troopers that went on to become mandelorians, and Boba becoming Mandalore.

You guys should read  Star Wars novels or comics, there are plenty of different subjects, such as Republic commandos.

Oh boy. I would have agreed with you maybe 5 years ago, but I recently watched revenge of the sith for the first time in a while last month, and it was simply horrible. Face palm worthy dialogue and writing, straight out bad acting, poorly done CGI (Even though plenty of other movies that came out before it had it better, ie. Lord of the Rings), plothole ridden story, and a number of other problems that made it just unenjoyable to watch. Seriously, the revenge of the sith probably used to be my favorite movie of all time when I was younger, but now watching them again after being older and having expanded my taste, the prequels just aren't good. If they didn't have the  star wars name and hype attached to them, nobody would have noticed them and they would have been branded as run of the mill mediocre B grade science fiction movies.

I read somewhere that Disney was going to make a spin-off movie about Boba Fett, but not the one we saw in the movies (not a clone) but someone else who killed him, took over his armor and pretended to be Boba. Not sure what I should think of this.   :o

There was a rebel spec ops soldier that did this, I'll find out his name later.
Yep I know about that. He was called Jodo Kast but he did not actually kill Boba but was rather killed by Boba Fett later for disguising himself as Boba. So that wouldn't make that much of a story.

Wait so Boba killed Jodo because Jodo was disguised as Boba?

Wait so Boba killed Jodo because Jodo was disguised as Boba?
Correct. Jodo was a bountyhunter, wore mandalorian armor similar to Boba's. So people mistook him for Boba at times. He made use of that and tried to make money out of it. Boba somehow heard of that and set a trap for him on Nal Hutta, where he said he wanted to give Jodo a contract to get him on Nal Hutta. At the meeting he atacked Jodo and injured him but he didn't kill him but let him die of his exploding Jetpack. ^^

The Herald of Death- Bridge

The Master stared out into space. Chiss Star Destroyers had moved to the Herald of Death's flanks in a wedge formation. His students prepared their ships for war.

War... I have been witness to far too many wars. I have stood by and watched the galaxy tear itself apart, taking a passive stance of helping one side over the other when the answer is right in front of me.

The galaxy will be plagued by wars for all time so long as a weak government and corrupt Jedi Order are all that stand to protect it. I will change that. The galaxy needs to change.

I am that change.

The holoprojector on the armrest of The Master's throne sparked to life, projecting the pale blue image of The Brain.

"Master. The connection is established."

Coruscant- Gilad Pellaeon Memorial Hospital- Mental Ward

Luke Skywalker entered the reception area of the Mental Ward of Gilad Pellaeon Memorial Hospital. There were no visitors to be seen, only a lone receptionist stood behind a desk in the pristine white room.

The receptionist was a beautiful young woman, who must have just been hired. She was of slight build, though she was nearly Luke's height. Her black hair was tied back by a ribbon, and her blue eyes looked over to him through rounded glasses.

"Master Skywalker!" She said waving him over. "I heard that you may be on your way."

Luke approached the desk, placing his hands on the warm durasteel. "Yes, I am here to see Nek Bwua'tu."

The receptionist typed something in on the small datapad she was holding, while she stepped out from behind the desk. "Of course. The transmission from the Chief of State's office said that you were here to see him. Before we go, I should warn you that his mind is severely damaged, but remains intact enough for him to ramble about some sort of dagger and Coruscant." The receptionist turned toward the door at the far end of the waiting area, waving for him to follow.

Luke followed her through the door labeled 'Mental Ward.' He had been sent by Chief of State Wynn Dorvan to help the Admiral recover from his experience with The Master. Luke had told him that other Jedi were better Jedi healers than he, but Dorvan insisted.

The receptionist stopped at a silver door labeled 'Bwua'tu' on her left. "He's in there. If you can, please help him. No one else has been able to."

Luke knew it was no coincidence that Bwua'tu would be untreatable. The Master had used his dark powers to remove a powerful obstacle from his path, no medicine could cure the shadow that had fallen over him. Luke only hoped that he could salvage the Admiral's mind.

Luke entered the chamber. There was only a flat bed to speak of, with the Admiral cowering behind it, shaking in fear. The Admiral's graying fur was thinning, his eyes darkened, but wide with perpetual terror. Images were scrawled on the wall, all of them resembling some sort of dagger.

Nek quickly leapt up, waving Luke over with his left hand and pointing at the largest image with his right. "The dagger! Black as the void! It will stab into Coruscant, and destroy everything." The Admiral's ramblings were ineligible to some, but Luke knew what it was.

The Master planned to strike Coruscant and possibly destroy the planet.

Nek Bwua'tu traced the outline of the dagger image with his index finger. "Black as the Void." He whispered. "It heralds the coming darkness."

Luke reached out with his right hand, reaching out to the Admiral's mind with the Force. He touched Nek's surface thoughts. His mind was fragmented, but intact enough to support his insane ramblings. Luke reached in deeper, following the darkness to its source. He found a swirling storm of darkness and, hiding behind it, a menacing shadow.

Luke pulled away, detaching himself from the Admiral's mind. This darkness was unlike anything he had ever seen. It had taken Nek Bwua'tu's mind and dominated it, but it had a possible unintended side-effect. Bwua'tu's ramblings had given Luke a glimpse into The Master's plans.

He will strike Coruscant, and he will strike it hard.

Luke heard footsteps rushing towards him. He could feel the receptionist's distress.

"Master Skywalker, you need to see this!"

*** *** *** ***


The Herald of Death- Bridge

The Master righted himself in his chair. The Brain had hacked into the galactic communications network of the Galactic Alliance, allowing The Master to broadcast a transmission to every planet in the Galactic Alliance.

It was time for the next step in The Master's plan. The final move before his war began.

*** *** *** ***


Coruscant- Gilad Pellaeon Memorial Hospital- Mental Ward

The receptionist pointed to the wall-mounted vidscreen on the right wall of the waiting area. The vidscreen displayed The Master's image in full color.

"Citizens of the Galactic Alliance. You know who I am, so I will not bother with introductions. I have a message for you." The Master coughed once before clearing his throat. "Many of you have been witness to wars. Many of you know of people who have lost loved ones because of war."

"I tell you now, that the fault lies in your leaders. They are responsible for your loss. When the Vong invaded, the poor leadership of New Republic leaders led to inaction and uncoordinated military responses, which, in turn, led to unnecessary deaths." The Master coughed again, louder this time. He shifted in his seat before continuing.

"But your leaders are only a single part of the problem. Look to your Guardians of Peace- the proud Order of the Jedi. They are corrupt as well. Their actions and their arrogance have caused even more deaths."

The Master coughed again. "The Jedi have become arrogant, believing themselves to be all-powerful. When an entity of unimaginable power struck the galaxy, the Jedi considered her just another foe to defeat. Their foolishness allowed the entity to create chaos on Coruscant."

"They believed the Second Galactic Civil War to be just another war for them to fight in, just another crisis for them to deal with. Their arrogance and flawed ideals has led them to make impossibly foolish decisions. They allowed the Sith- sworn enemies of peace and freedom- to continue their foul existence."

"The collective foolishness and arrogance of your leaders and the Jedi Order has allowed the Imperial Remnant to grow into a full-fledged Empire."

"Even now the Sith, and the new Empire under the leadership of Jagged Fel plan to overthrow the Galactic Alliance and return the galaxy to the darkness it felt under the reign of Emperor Palpatine."

The Master coughed again, bending over in his seat as his lungs spasmed. He cleared his throat and returned to an upright position. "But this does not have to be your future. You can do something about it. Join me in my fight to unseat your corrupt leaders and cleanse the corruption of the Jedi Order."

"I will put an end to war. I will unite the galaxy under one rule. The new Empire and the Sith will be defeated, and the galaxy will be at peace."

The Master's voice rose, compelling Luke to join him. The Master's voice was eloquent, alluring. Luke knew many would fall prey to his words.

"If you believe as I do, then join me. Bringing peace will not be easy. It will take one final war, but, together, we can unite the galaxy. United, we will defeat the Sith and this new Empire. Together, we will finally save the galaxy!"

The Master's image vanished from the vidscreen, leaving static in his place.

Luke placed a hand on the receptionist's shoulder, pouring some of his energy into her. "Don't listen to him. He's lying. This is a ruse."

She swallowed and nodded. "You'll stop him, won't you?"

Luke didn't answer. He knew it wouldn't be so simple.

*** *** *** ***


The Herald of Death- Bridge

The Master fell into a fit of coughing. He cupped his mouth over his hands. He pulled his hands away, and saw blood spots on them. "Why is this happening to me?"

"Because you're dying." A voice from behind him answered.

"They believed the Second Galactic Civil War to be just another war for them to fight in, just another crisis for them to deal with. Their arrogance and flawed ideals has led them to make impossibly foolish decisions. They allowed the Sith- sworn enemies of peace and freedom- to continue their foul existence."

"The collective foolishness and arrogance of your leaders and the Jedi Order has allowed the Imperial Remnant to grow into a full-fledged Empire."

"Even now the Sith, and the new Empire under the leadership of Jagged Fel plan to overthrow the Galactic Alliance and return the galaxy to the darkness it felt under the reign of Emperor Palpatine."

The Master coughed again, bending over in his seat as his lungs spasmed. He cleared his throat and returned to an upright position. "But this does not have to be your future. You can do something about it. Join me in my fight to unseat your corrupt leaders and cleanse the corruption of the Jedi Order."

"I will put an end to war. I will unite the galaxy under one rule. The new Empire and the Sith will be defeated, and the galaxy will be at peace."

The Master's voice rose, compelling Luke to join him. The Master's voice was eloquent, alluring. Luke knew many would fall prey to his words.

"If you believe as I do, then join me. Bringing peace will not be easy. It will take one final war, but, together, we can unite the galaxy. United, we will defeat the Sith and this new Empire. Together, we will finally save the galaxy!"

The Master's image vanished from the vidscreen, leaving static in his place.

Luke placed a hand on the receptionist's shoulder, pouring some of his energy into her. "Don't listen to him. He's lying. This is a ruse."

She swallowed and nodded. "You'll stop him, won't you?"

Luke didn't answer. He knew it wouldn't be so simple.

The Herald of Death- Bridge

The Master fell into a fit of coughing. He cupped his mouth over his hands. He pulled his hands away, and saw blood spots on them. "Why is this happening to me?"

"Because you're dying." A voice from behind him answered.

here is my ster wars fan fiction story! :D hope you like!
Spoiler
The Herald of Death- Bridge

The Master stared out into space. Chiss Star Destroyers had moved to the Herald of Death's flanks in a wedge formation. His students prepared their ships for war.

War... I have been witness to far too many wars. I have stood by and watched the galaxy tear itself apart, taking a passive stance of helping one side over the other when the answer is right in front of me.

The galaxy will be plagued by wars for all time so long as a weak government and corrupt Jedi Order are all that stand to protect it. I will change that. The galaxy needs to change.

I am that change.

The holoprojector on the armrest of The Master's throne sparked to life, projecting the pale blue image of The Brain.

"Master. The connection is established."

Coruscant- Gilad Pellaeon Memorial Hospital- Mental Ward

Luke Skywalker entered the reception area of the Mental Ward of Gilad Pellaeon Memorial Hospital. There were no visitors to be seen, only a lone receptionist stood behind a desk in the pristine white room.

The receptionist was a beautiful young woman, who must have just been hired. She was of slight build, though she was nearly Luke's height. Her black hair was tied back by a ribbon, and her blue eyes looked over to him through rounded glasses.

"Master Skywalker!" She said waving him over. "I heard that you may be on your way."

Luke approached the desk, placing his hands on the warm durasteel. "Yes, I am here to see Nek Bwua'tu."

The receptionist typed something in on the small datapad she was holding, while she stepped out from behind the desk. "Of course. The transmission from the Chief of State's office said that you were here to see him. Before we go, I should warn you that his mind is severely damaged, but remains intact enough for him to ramble about some sort of dagger and Coruscant." The receptionist turned toward the door at the far end of the waiting area, waving for him to follow.

Luke followed her through the door labeled 'Mental Ward.' He had been sent by Chief of State Wynn Dorvan to help the Admiral recover from his experience with The Master. Luke had told him that other Jedi were better Jedi healers than he, but Dorvan insisted.

The receptionist stopped at a silver door labeled 'Bwua'tu' on her left. "He's in there. If you can, please help him. No one else has been able to."

Luke knew it was no coincidence that Bwua'tu would be untreatable. The Master had used his dark powers to remove a powerful obstacle from his path, no medicine could cure the shadow that had fallen over him. Luke only hoped that he could salvage the Admiral's mind.

Luke entered the chamber. There was only a flat bed to speak of, with the Admiral cowering behind it, shaking in fear. The Admiral's graying fur was thinning, his eyes darkened, but wide with perpetual terror. Images were scrawled on the wall, all of them resembling some sort of dagger.

Nek quickly leapt up, waving Luke over with his left hand and pointing at the largest image with his right. "The dagger! Black as the void! It will stab into Coruscant, and destroy everything." The Admiral's ramblings were ineligible to some, but Luke knew what it was.

The Master planned to strike Coruscant and possibly destroy the planet.

Nek Bwua'tu traced the outline of the dagger image with his index finger. "Black as the Void." He whispered. "It heralds the coming darkness."

Luke reached out with his right hand, reaching out to the Admiral's mind with the Force. He touched Nek's surface thoughts. His mind was fragmented, but intact enough to support his insane ramblings. Luke reached in deeper, following the darkness to its source. He found a swirling storm of darkness and, hiding behind it, a menacing shadow.

Luke pulled away, detaching himself from the Admiral's mind. This darkness was unlike anything he had ever seen. It had taken Nek Bwua'tu's mind and dominated it, but it had a possible unintended side-effect. Bwua'tu's ramblings had given Luke a glimpse into The Master's plans.

He will strike Coruscant, and he will strike it hard.

Luke heard footsteps rushing towards him. He could feel the receptionist's distress.

"Master Skywalker, you need to see this!"

*** *** *** ***


The Herald of Death- Bridge

The Master righted himself in his chair. The Brain had hacked into the galactic communications network of the Galactic Alliance, allowing The Master to broadcast a transmission to every planet in the Galactic Alliance.

It was time for the next step in The Master's plan. The final move before his war began.

*** *** *** ***


Coruscant- Gilad Pellaeon Memorial Hospital- Mental Ward

The receptionist pointed to the wall-mounted vidscreen on the right wall of the waiting area. The vidscreen displayed The Master's image in full color.

"Citizens of the Galactic Alliance. You know who I am, so I will not bother with introductions. I have a message for you." The Master coughed once before clearing his throat. "Many of you have been witness to wars. Many of you know of people who have lost loved ones because of war."

"I tell you now, that the fault lies in your leaders. They are responsible for your loss. When the Vong invaded, the poor leadership of New Republic leaders led to inaction and uncoordinated military responses, which, in turn, led to unnecessary deaths." The Master coughed again, louder this time. He shifted in his seat before continuing.

"But your leaders are only a single part of the problem. Look to your Guardians of Peace- the proud Order of the Jedi. They are corrupt as well. Their actions and their arrogance have caused even more deaths."

The Master coughed again. "The Jedi have become arrogant, believing themselves to be all-powerful. When an entity of unimaginable power struck the galaxy, the Jedi considered her just another foe to defeat. Their foolishness allowed the entity to create chaos on Coruscant."

Some people have their reservations/doubts with how the lore and canon are being handled, but I still want to see how it is.

I'm not really hip on how they've treated some of the Expanded universe but at the end of the day its their material and ultimately their call. Most of the complaining is just people butthurt that x boox they liked is no longer formally canon. To be totally honest I've read a bunch of the EU Star Wars books and 90% are shit.

m-8! Most of the plot didn't make sense, everything was conveniently set up. For example Han screwing everything that happened in the original trilogy, he abandons the rebellion for no reason the same does Luke.

The new deathstar or whatever was just there so they could recreate the ending from a new hope.

No one gave a shit that Han got killed, but I guess he had to get out of the way because Rey was supposed to take his place.

And lastly I read a review of the movie that stated that Finn was as cool as Han Solo..... anyone who agrees?

Yes, the movie was complete bullshit. I hate it. It is way worse than the 3 "first" Episodes of Star Wars.
Atleast these had a more or less proper story and proper character development.

A lot of the action in this new Star Wars movie just made no sense and half of the movie was just taken from previous movies. It started alright, but after roughly 30 minutes
Spoiler
or something like that. You know, as soon as they escape with the millennium falcon and get captured by Han, the movie turns into garbage
[close]
that was over and the movie turned into complete bullshit.

Spoiler
The new villain just feels so silly. You know, Darth Vader in the original trilogy had some mystery around him. You didn't really know who he is, and why he is evil and always wears a mask... The new villain is completely explained/revelaed in the first few minutes, has no charisma (I actually like Darth Vader as a character) and just feels unbelievable. There is no proper background story for him. Darth Vader had one.
In the beginning he seems to be super good at using the force, stopping blaster shots in the air etc. but the longer the movie lasts, the worse his powers get. How the fuck can he be defeated by someone who just got into contact with the force?
And the father/son plot is not only stolen from the previous movies, which makes it incredibly silly and boring, it is also flat as shit. There is literally 0 reason to care for either Han, Leia or "Ben". Espceially for Ben...
The only character that made sense and that I cared for are R2D2 and Luke. (Probably because they only had like half a minute of screen time each)

Another thing that confused me is why all previous Jedis, including Luke had to train for years to master the power of the force, while this new girl seems to be able to do everything by her own. Even after Lukes training, in Episode 6 he still seems to be new with the force. You can clearly see the difference in his training and abilities compared to earlier Jedis. And I liked that part. It showed that the "Age of the Jedi Order" was over and that no one will ever reach the skill of the previous Jedis (as seen in Episode 1-3) again.

And one thing that pisses me off in ALL movies nowadays, is that the villains always have be Nazis. Come on, why does that have to be? The Empire was not that Nazi. Yes, it was evil and enslaved people and did not do much good, but it felt like a believable structure that could form after a series of bad political decisions. In the beginning of Episode 4, there is a Senate and it is hinted that even Darth Vader can not do as he wishes. His officers complain to him that boarding Princess Leias ship is not a legal action.
Leia actually threatens Vader by announcing her capture and the boarding to the Senate to which the Emperor later responds by dissolving the Senate and thereby granting him and Vader absolute power.
Which makes sense, because that was the entire reason he build the Deathstar in the first place, right? To grant him absolute power over the Galaxy. He would not have been able to dissolve the Senate, if there would not have been a Deathstar. They would have all joined the Rebellion and the Empire would not have lasted for long.

In Episode 7, the "First Order" can just do whatever they wish. Why? How? How did they manage to form up and build this giant base?
I also did not understand what this "Resistance" and the Republic are. If there is a Republic, shouldn't the Republic be the one fighting against the "First Order"?
And how did this stupid Deathstar3.0 kill all of the Republic? It merely destroyed one Star System, maybe 6 planets or so. In earlier Episodes we learn that the Republic and the Empire are huge, that they span over thousands, if not millions of Star systems...
Or is the Empire not completely defeated and the Republic is just a small group of Planets struggling to fight against the remaining parts of the Empire?
In that case, the complete destruction of the Republic made sense. But then again, without the Deathstar, the Rebellion i.e. the Republic would be 1000 times larger, right?

If the First Order is a new thing that formed, where did they get the resources and support from? There is no explanation to that. Even in Episode1, there is an explanation for the Seperatist Army.
The First Order is just something to drive the Plot. There is no background story behind it, it simply exists because they were in need of a villain.

I would give it a whole 2/10. Even fucking Transformers 1-3 was better than this. And I hate transformers.

They have a (actually quite genius) story, they explain why Darth Vader is bad and how the Empire formed.

Yes from a certain point of view. The major difference, I guess, is that the plot which they copied form episode 4, and some of 5, doesn't make sense. As explained by Olafson.
As for the new characters Finn is useless and Rey is the most powerful person in the movie, just because she realized she is strong with the force.

For me the thing that fully ruined the movie was the editing and music. The movie basically has two parts when its not in "action mode"; Rey on Jakku, and the cantina scene. The rest of the movie NEVER had more than two minutes between each action scene. The shooting and loud music never stops, it goes from one battle to another battle and then to the next. Most of it is entirely pointless, and it results in that nothing is properly explained because 80% of the damn movie is just endless fighting.
They could have cut out most of the action and put in some story building, like for example explaining the new order, and idk. maybe the new deathstar.
Instead we are shown the deathstar just before it begins to wipe out the rebels (or resistance, who knows?), and right after that, the rebels plan the attack, and shortly afterwards destroy it. All we ever got to know about the Starkiller base is that it was larger than the other two deathstars and therefor could destroy more shit.
In the end though I see why they didn't bother to explain the plot to a greater detail. The first reason is that its all things we have seen in episode 4 and 5. The second reason is that they probably can't even explain it. The Starkiller base (the name is even taken from a star wars video game!) has no reason to be in the movie at all. Han Solo had no reason to leave the rebellion. Luke had no reason to leave the rebellion. All those things are what set off the events in the movie. My point being there is no reason for what happens in this movie to be happening.

Also the music is poor and unoriginal.

These are my opinions on The Force Awakens. But I have to not understand something, because most people loved it. By many it's apparently being regarded as one of the best Star Wars films, and i would like to know why?

Exactly my thoughts. Although I think the music was alright.
What you just explained might also be the reason why I actually liked the first few minutes of the movie. It takes its own time, it is not one useless combat scene after another (Although it has quite a few combat scenes...) and it actually develops some of the characters. But shortly after that period they completely forget about that and screw it up.

Well "Several decades after the Empire's defeat, the First Order emerged as the inheritors of the Imperial legacy, and the Resistance served as a check against the First Order's designs for the galaxy." -http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Resistance

There not the remnants of the Galactic Empire. According to all the sources I could find it's a military Junta that took over in the place of the empire "several decades" after its dissolution. And again, that brings up the question of how on earth they managed to construct the Starkiller Base. They even have their new star destroyers.

Another question is who Snoke is, and where he came from? He is strong with the dark side, that is all we know.
Someone had to train him and in that case who?
They keep talking about that they have to kill Luke to destroy the Jedi once and for all. That's because he's the last Jedi and therefor the only one who can teach others to become Jedi. Although forgive me, training is not needed in this movie as seen with Rey. She defeats Ben, who has been training for approximately 20 years to learn the force, both light and dark side. I get she is powerful, but srysly, she was told the force existed on the same day she defeated Ben!

But the point is that Ben is incredibly powerful in the beginning of the movie and in the end he can't do fucking anything. He stops a blastershot in the air, coming from the side.
And then later, chewie can just shoot him?
And that other idiot, Fin is able to defeat him with the lightsabre? That guy has been training for like 20-30 years, why the fuck is he so bad at this.

And how can Rey/Ray/Bitch/Whatever be so proficient with the force? She actually didn't even believe that Jedi existed until she met Han. And then she gets captured and she knows that Jedis can play mindtricks with other people? HOW DID SHE KNOW THAT? AND WHY DID SHE NOT NEED ANY TRAINING?

It also says they consist of military leaders who where part of the galactic empire.

That still does not explain how they emerged so long after the Empire was defeated and how they managed to get the technology and resources needed to build such a huge base.
And given that the First order is so popular, I mean, apparently everyone knows about it, why does the Republic not send its own army to defeat it? Or knew about that base before it was finished in construction? I don't think that it is possible to keep such a huge thing in secret? The Republic could have easily defeated it before they even got that powerfull.

Oh my

plot holes and inconsistency in a movie with physics defying super warriors and wise old swamp frogs.

This movie arguably had the best writing and character development of any Star Wars because for all his failings, JJ Abrams is a better writer and director than Lucas by miles. And while I won't defend why Ren becomes increasingly less refined over the film, one could argue its the trapping of a Sith Lord. To be overcome by emotion and hatred makes you do stupid things and leaves openings for your enemies to strike. It's like in Revenge of the Sith in the battle between Obi Wan and Anakin, Anakin was obviously better with the force and a saber but gave way to his emotions in the moment which Obi wan exploited. That's one theory.

And for why everything advances so fast with Rey, it's already a 2 hour movie, would you rather they pull a Phantom Menance and spend an entire movie trying to get Rey to understand the train with the force? Or would you rather they leave the next two movies open for an awesome Luke-Rey adventure plot which will most likely involve training and a master-padawan relationship?

TL;DR it's a good movie, if you like Star Wars, see it

But the point is that Ben is incredibly powerful in the beginning of the movie and in the end he can't do fucking anything. He stops a blastershot in the air, coming from the side.
And then later, chewie can just shoot him?
And that other idiot, Fin is able to defeat him with the lightsabre? That guy has been training for like 20-30 years, why the fuck is he so bad at this.
From what i've read, the reason that Ben is shit sometimes is because he is having an inner conflict between the light and dark force aspects, he had also just killed his father so as was explained, he probably had a lot of emotional toil to deal with. Keep in mind, he is no sith lord.

And how can Rey/Ray/Bitch/Whatever be so proficient with the force? She actually didn't even believe that Jedi existed until she met Han. And then she gets captured and she knows that Jedis can play mindtricks with other people? HOW DID SHE KNOW THAT? AND WHY DID SHE NOT NEED ANY TRAINING?
This was one of my few critiques of the movie, however i believe it wasn't a big deal in my opinion. We do not know who she is yet or why she is able to use the force so well but that is likely going to be explained in the next movie. As for knowing about mind tricks, people know that jedis are able to use mind tricks. I hate to reference Phantom Menace but that blue fly guy knew about Jedi mind tricks so i don't see how other people wouldn't. They probably heard stories of the jedi and their abilities. I'm sure all of this will be further explained in the next movies, again, we don't know who she is yet.

It also says they consist of military leaders who where part of the galactic empire.
That still does not explain how they emerged so long after the Empire was defeated and how they managed to get the technology and resources needed to build such a huge base.
And given that the First order is so popular, I mean, apparently everyone knows about it, why does the Republic not send its own army to defeat it? Or knew about that base before it was finished in construction? I don't think that it is possible to keep such a huge thing in secret? The Republic could have easily defeated it before they even got that powerfull.
JJ Abrams explains that the First Order was trying to not only emulate the Galactic Empire but also to try and surpass it. With all fascist societies, it's about supremacy. Also, if we look at the logistics, i would imagine that even though Starkiller base is much larger, that is because it is an actual planet. I'd imagine that the construction of the deathstar would take roughly the same time as the construction of star killer base because they are just drilling giant holes into the planet's core and lining it with metal or whatever it is. For an advanced sci-fi space civilization that has been continuously advancing in technology, this isn't that far fetched i don't think. Much of starkiller base is still, ya know, snow and shit, they aren't using the entire planet. As for defeating them before becoming too powerful, as the video explains, Republic and New Order signed a treaty and the Republic reduced it's military 80% so to not become a repeat of the previous republic.

is it just me or is anyone finding it hard to believe for the New Order to have built the mega Death Star in ~30 years when it took the Empire ~5 years to only build half of the Death Star mk2.

Also wtf was the Republic doing? Why was their ENTIRE fleet at their ports when they knew they had the New Order running around (even w/o knowing they had their death cannon, how weren't they perceived as a threat)? Why did the New Order target the Republic and not the Resistance with their death cannon first? Why do these guys always leave the  critical points on their death cannons so vulnerable? If their weapon drains their sun where did they get the energy for the first shot if their sun was still their the second time around? Why were the Stormtroopers so menacing in the opening scene but useless for the rest of the film, weren't they trained from birth?

I could go on but it would all lead to the same point. This movie made no god damn sense. Entertaining though.

hopefully answers many of your questions
Umk, going to try and explain this the best i can. I already explained in a previous post that in a constantly advancing military society with vast numbers of cheap labor (slavery), the idea of star killer base is not far fetched. First off, they aren't using the entire planet. The deathstar, they were using every bit of it but star killer base was a planet that they drilled giant holes into and lined with some metal and stuff i guess. I would imagine that it would actually take roughly the same amount of time as a deathstar, maybe a bit longer. Plus if you think about it logistically, it's probably easier to build your base on a planet instead of in the middle of fucking space.

They knew that the first order existed but they were not aware of star killer base, the star wars universe is HUGE okay, they can't watch everything that has been happened. The republic signed a treaty with the first order, effectively saying that we control this half of the playground and you control that half. However the resistance is loosely attached to the republic but act outside of it. They fight the first order despite the treaty because....idk....evil or something. I'm just getting into the new canon so i'm not sure about everything.

By targeting the Republic, they were targeting the resistance. The resistance acts within the republic and they have no central planets of control. Plus they probably thought that the republic was a larger threat then the resistance (which turned out to be wrong)

The critical spot was not "vulnerable," the resistance just got lucky with han and chewy. The planet had a shield preventing ships slower than lightspeed, it had senor arrays, turbo-laser canons, and a fuck ton of tie fighters and stormtroopers.

"If their weapon drains their sun where did they get the energy for the first shot if their sun was still their the second time around?" A second sun or the sun could've been larger, i don't really know for this one to be honest but it's really not a big deal for me. I'm sure the answer is in one of the new books that they have.

"Why were the Stormtroopers so menacing in the opening scene but useless for the rest of the film, weren't they trained from birth?" Short Answer: Plot Device. Long Answer: The force does a lot of weird shit where it can protect certain people at certain times and also, stormtroopers were trained to not hit high value targets which is what happened in 4,5,6. There has been a long running joke about Stormtroopers accuracy however in much of those scenes, they actually missed on purpose.

Aight, I'll give you the bit about the political situation in the universe. The movie did jack all  to explain that. Same with the part about the Death Cannon thing being the product of advanced tech. (obv.) and slavery but it still seems a bit stretched to me. However, I have to call bull about the Stormtroopers. They may have been trained to miss high value targets but they just seemed straight up useless. During the fight at the tavern (thing) what exactly were they doing? Just standing in groups and shooting at starfighters with straight up rifles (Which I actually did some research about and their blaster rifle has an effective range of about 900 yds. and can be set to stun, so why not set it to stun and hit your damned target?) , I mean there must be some thing better to do, like you know, take cover and stay down? And how did two trained pilots manage to get out witted by Ray(?) at the beginning of the film? Sure, they didn't want to kill them but they scarcely landed a shot in their attempt to disable the Falcon. And if the the ventilator (or whatever the hell it was) was so well protected then how did maybe 30 starfighters and a four man ground team manage to destroy it? Plus the point I was trying to make was why would they include a sole weakness in the first place? And if you really need to include something that could potentially destroy everything why not make a collection of smaller ones that can work independently of one another so if one of them gets destroyed, it can, wait for it, NOT BLOW THE UP. I just hate it when movies do something just to convenience the plot.

there are so many battle scenes and they destroy a planet, and Han Solo kicks in with Chewwie, and she's a jedi, and he's a weirdo Stormtrooper and then there's Solo's and Leia's kid, and he's suddenly evil, and who is sitting in that chair, and how did they escape, and how did that jet fighter flie in and how could it explode everything, and how did Chewwie find the new girl and the Stormtrooper in time to save them, and why was the lightsaber in that weird castle, and how and why and what, really.

IMO, the last hour of the movie could have been a triology, 'cause that shit went way too fast and way too easy...

I thought they were doing 3 spin-off standalone films in addition to the trilogy? I don't remember where I heard that though to be fair.
I've heard of a Han Solo standalone, Rogue Squadron Standalone, and then a 3rd one with not many details being let out.

Confirmed.

That would probably have to be multiple movies since his story spans both sides of the force. I would love to see them though. The Old Republic story is great. Kinda wish Bioware made a movie out of their cutscenes.

Wait. Stop. The Galactic Empire originally only used Jango Fett clones. They were accompanied by Human commanders as well as clone officers. After the advanced aging of the clones began to make the clones unfit for duty it was decided to integrate them with normal humans who were trained to have fanatical loyalty to the Emperor.

And what would possibly happen if Gungans refused to help Padmé Amidala to defend Naboo?
Of course they could have chosen not to. Then Episode 1 would have sucked more though.

Well the Galactic Empire was formed from the remains of the Galactic Republic, so the army at the time was the Grand Army of the Republic (clones), so I'm not sure what you mean by before they started to use clones.

If you're talking about the Republic before the Empire, then they had the Judicial branch of the government which served as the peace keepers of the Republic.

To find any kind of formal military that was not the clone army, you'd have to look at the Old Republic before the Galactic Republic of the movies.

That question has been answered to death 100000 times.

She did not "become a Jedi master" in a matter of seconds. She narrowly got the better of Ren who was rather severely injured (via Chewie's bowcaster) and was going through a colossal internal crisis (killing your father trying to purge the light and let the dark side take over does that I guess).

Also, she already has experience fighting with that staff of hers so its not too far of a stretch to believe some of that skill would translate to lightsaber proficiency.

Kylo was apparently at the level of a Jedi Padawan because he only ever killed the kids at the academy and never fought force sensitives after that. This combined with the bowcaster injury, natural edgyness and ego, and Rey's ability to channel the force with her Mary Sue powers all meant he was going to get dunked on./s

Is Jar Jar Binks Darth Plagueis? I think this theory is false, because if Plagueis reincarnated into Jar Jar, why would he help Palpatine to become the Supreme Chancellor and later the Emperor of the Empire if Sidious murdered him?

It's just a little too wonky to truly believe. I'd buy more into Jar Jar colluding with the Sith but not being a sith lord himself. That seems a little too much for a character that was generally hated by all.
Title: Re: The Star Wars Thread

Both ideas make sense though.
Either Jar Jar helped the Sith to rise to power or he is Darth Plageuis.

If he actually is Darth Plageuis then maybe he just did not want to be officially recognized? Think about it, it makes sense. Why put yourself on the throne when you can put someone else on it, that does practically everything you do? Palpetine is Jar Jars puppet.
Maybe he did not even know or notice that he is a puppet? Maybe Palpatine did not know that Jar Jar is Darth Plageuis... 

And tbh, the whole prequels and practically all Star Wars movies suddenly become much better with Jar Jar being a Sith in control of everything.

I like the theory, believe me, all my friends hate me when I point out his force moves and mind tricks, but when you realize the direction George Lucas had to take the prequels after all the hate it becomes easier to understand why Jar Jar had to take a backseat. Would be interesting if this could be confirmed though.

well, we still don't know if Jar Jar was killed after Palpatine ordered the order 66. If yes, I'm sure this theory is not true

Unless Jar Jar was really Plagueis, then Palpatine killed him and when he talked to Anakin before about his master, he was telling him what shall happen in the future

But that sounds really stupid so it's probably not true :S

The holes on an AAT (Armored Assault Tank) were used as launch tubes with various ammunition apparently. I do not recall looking at the bottom of an AAT, always looking at the large laser cannon on top. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Armored_Assault_Tank/Legends

In the books it's said he used an advanced fencing technique that no Jedi had ever seen before. Basically imagine the Jedi only knew how to counter generic sword attacks using the full blade while Palpatine only used the tip, just like fencing.

The thing I don't understand is how could Ki-Adi-Mundi get killed by a bunch of n00bish clones?
he wasnt expecting his allies to shoot him. Plus, theres only so many lasers a person can block. Im more concerned with how Palpatine killed those jedi "masters"

The first 2 jedi masters in that scene literally got 1 hit insta-killed not even blocking once. And they went in their knowing he was a sith lord. Reminds me of recruits blindly running into melee! XD
In the books it's said he used an advanced fencing technique that no Jedi had ever seen before. Basically imagine the Jedi only knew how to counter generic sword attacks using the full blade while Palpatine only used the tip, just like fencing.

Hey bros, I'm just explaining the book. I don't really care about the film itself. Besides, it actually makes you see that Palpatine was a complete badass capable of going through Jedi Masters like a hot knife through butter. Isn't that what Sith Lords are supposed to do  ::)

Its just annoying. Look at it from a young boys perspective for example. They are more likely to relate to some man / boy that they can aspire to be like etc. However at the same time i do see the good in having a female lead in star wars as it will help more girls young and old to be interested in sci-fi like things and seeing a female in a more action based role will hopefully change the way society views women as a whole.

But overall i honestly think it is just insulting to do BOTH the new star wars films with a female lead.
Its just unfair to all fans for them to almost make it transparently obvious that they are being politically correct by inserting females into every lead role possible now a days...

Ofc race and gender matter.
If I make a movie about Japan, I probably want Japanese people only. There is no reason for me to include africans.

You get what I mean.
The same goes for Star Wars. Maybe black people are just way less common in the Star Wars universe than anywhere else. There is no reason to assume that black people are just as common. Actually if you watch the movies, black people are extremely rare.
So why should there be so many black guys now?

Equally, I think I have not seen a single Asian guy in star wars, until that new movie.

Agreed. The film just felt so odd with the forced humor and amount of CGI. What made the original trilogy so good was the use of practical effects and deep story telling. The prequels still had good story telling but just an absurd amount of bad CGI which was limited to the technology at the time. Episode 7 also lacked a ton of setup/exposition to explain anything. It was like you were just placed here and now the story starts. They gave zero details on what happened after the Battle of Endor, like zero and I felt no connection to the New Republic because I knew nothing about it.

Truly cringe inducing, and Aiden Christiansen isn't even a bad actor so it can pretty much be chalked up to Lucas's awful writing and direction.

For a matter of fact, the best Star Wars movies are the ones that he did not direct himself.

And in general I have heard a lot of people complain about the bad acting in the Star Wars prequels.
I watched them all in German, and still do, because I am just used to them in German, and I never noticed any bad acting.

Sometimes it is good to have a German dub. Bad acting can be made better. Because the German dub actors are super experienced and dub practically every movie there is, the acting of a lot of actors is probably made a whole lot better.

Rented the movie over the weekend, I've watched it twice now, here are some of my thoughts on the movie. I'll definitely buy it, great film.

Contains spoilers
1) FN-2187, as his alias nicknames him, is horrified by the killings at the village called Tuanul, Jakku. He is disturbed when his friend dies in his arms, and refuses to take part in the killing of all the townsfolk, who had been rounded up in the square. It doesn't really make sense when, he and Poe are escaping in the ship, that he killed his own men with the turret? I mean, he was raised to a be a stormtrooper from birth, so I don't understand why he would kill his own comrades, after having that embarassing incident at Tuanul.

2) For me, the relationship between Finn and Poe builds up way too fast. Finn was, from birth, raised to be a stormtrooper, brainwashed into thinking that the First Order was his life. Why would he give it all up for this Poe person? And they've only known each other for 4 minutes, and they're already best friends.

1) I've been reading some theories on where Rey is from. A particular one that peaked my interest was that she is really the daughter of Luke Skywalker. I mean, how else could she have such power, even becoming stronger than Kylo Ren?

She can probably sense that Rey is a Skywalker, since Leia is also force sensitive and a Skywalker as well. In the Disney timeline of Star Wars she decided to lead the resistance instead of training in the force ( as she did in the original canon before Disney came along and scraped all of that)

In my opinion, the theory that she's Luke's daughter is the one that makes the most sense. There are a few other theories, but I think that it'll be revealed in Episode 8 or so that she infact is his daughter.

They are allowed, it's just frowed upon. Also after having his hand removed by anakin, Windu probally was really pissed and delving into the dark side. He wants to innact revenge upon the skywalkers for disfiguring him, taking his hand, and aiding palpatine with destroying the jedi and creating the empire.

I am about a big a star wars fan as they come. Been watching them almost daily since i was kid. I have loved them all thus far especially episodes 4-6 of course. But i must say i saw Last Jedi on release night and was even the first person in line having waited 2 hours, and it really let me down honestly.

They put so much humor in it that it really killed some of the epic moments of the movie and just really ruined several emotional scenes with jokes. I wont post any spoiler related stuff until at least next week. But honestly i am not very happy with the direction they took this film and the skywalker saga for several reasons which i cant say due to spoilers... :-\

Agreed. Most scenes felt like remakes of scenes in either the original trilogy or the prequels. A little bit here and there can be a clever tribute, but it just felt like plagiarism. Still better than Ep 7 though.
Got better hopes for the Han Solo film though, that should be good.

Title: Re: The Star Wars Thread
Post by: William on December 18, 2017, 06:45:47 pm
I see you all liked Rogue One as well. What's worrying about that is that up to 50% of that movie was reshot. Apparently it was supposed to be a Star Wars Vietnam sort of movie, but Disney said no and decided to redo a lot of it. The Han Solo movie also had it's director cut for being too out of the box. I like Disney but they really don't want to make a 'risky' star wars movie and instead just want to be generic.

Ep. 8 Complaits (Spoilers)
I really liked the movie in the same way that I like any movie the first time I watch it in theaters. My viewing was crammed and everyone was very vocal and funny and clapping so it was a nice experience. However, after we left I started to think on a few things:
  • Why was Snoke built up just to be killed like a bitch
  • Why was Luke Skywalker - the greatest jedi ever to live according to George Lucas - killed off after having done almost nothing in the new trilogy
  • So Force Ghost Yoda can show up but not force ghost Anakin in the form of Hayden Christensen? That would be the greatest fan service ever done
  • Crait felt just like the Hoth battle
  • I like comedy, don't get me wrong, but it feels so forced and extra that it takes away from what Star Wars is
  • Still have almost no exposition on the resistance or first order.
  • Phasma - supposedly a great female antagonist  - does almost nothing and dies a bitch
  • Diversity is extremely forced. I'm usually not a sucker for this but there must have been an active attempt to try and cast as few white guys as possible (sorry not sorry)
  • Poe Damaron is the male equivalent of a Mary Sue except he flies an X-Wing
  • Rey apparently has no parents, which makes no sense because this is a Skywalker trilogy and now just some random Joe-Blow is the lead protagonist
  • Still can't get over how Luke Skywalker, king of the Jedi, would cut himself off from the force.
  • Apparently just lightspeeding/kamikazy'ing your ship can take out anything, so why didn't the rebellion just do that to the death star

Rotten Tomatoes confuses me so much. Justice League, which I thought was actually pretty good, has a terrible rotten score but a great audience score. Episode 8 has a great critical score, yet a terrible audience score.

Looks like Disney are gonna lose $50-80 million on Han Solo according to projections, and will be the first Star Wars film to lose money. Bombed in China, lukewarm reception in US and Europe. Given the size of most Hollywood blockbuster budgets these days the US market alone can't sustain them and they have to also appeal in China if they're to make serious money.

Han Solo deserved to fail. Saturated market, awful Disney management and politically divisive content. Episode IX will perform just as badly unless something major changes.

Perhaps, though takings for 'The Last Jedi' were significantly down vs 'The Force Awakens'. I suppose that's partly to be expected (excitement for a new film after 10+ years etc meant artificially high viewership) but the relatively low audience score on RT perhaps suggests people are turning away. It comes out next year so we'll see...

It will fail. Honestly Force Awakens was trash and missed opportunity because they just remade episode IV for fanservice but failed. The Last Jedi on the other hand was 2 times worse, not suprising when you watch a few interviews with Ryan. He was asked if he thinks any of online criticism is justified, and he said None, I mean thats worse than Kanye West ego #SoHumble. Some people say SJW agenda ruined these two movies, but when you look at it it was just shit writing, there are good SJW influenced films. In a nutshell VIII-IX were ruied by awful Disney managment and prequelphobia.

That $250 million is for production costs only (i.e to make the film). There's also marketing costs to consider which for major Hollywood films are huge, sometimes more than it actually cost to make them in the fist place. No idea what Disney is spending on marketing for Han Solo but as a rough guesstimate $150-250 million would be likely.

Only way IX can be saved is if Jar Jar Binks is to return as Sith Lord that was behind Palpatine the whole time and forcefully slaughters Mao Zedong (Rose),  Mary Sue (Rey)  and mr Hothead (Fin). Proclaming second Galatic Empire.

Really enjoyed solo! I think it was one of the best star wars movies period. The guy playing Han was a little off here and there but no one can compare to Harrison so i don't really hold it against the movie. Overall a very fun and entertaining experience and especially great for fans of Han Solo.

And almost all of the sets in the movie were amazing. Every planet etc was just awesome. Also i LOVED the parts where Han was fighting for the Empire as a trooper. So cool to get a glimpse of that side of the galactic war. And especially a pov from a soldier in the empire. Would love to see a whole star wars film like that.

Overall i give it a 8/10, would be 9-10 if Alden Ehrenreich worked on his character/voice etc more.

Yes for some reason people are incredibly harsh towards the movie. I understand Disney management and the way they have went about handling star wars is pretty terrible. But this movie all bullshit aside is good and enjoyable in itself and has some qualities that make it stand out from some of the other star wars movies. In particular i know this movie is miles better then Last Jedi. And i personally enjoyed it more then Rouge One.

Didnt watch solo, but apart from prequels (which are best no jokes here) Rogue one is best star wars movie. It presents war as it truly is there is no heroes just monsters on both sides.

I humbly think that Episode 3 is the GOAT because it ties everything together and yes there are dumb things in it but it really shows how the characters became the way they are today and was just a good transition from the prequel trilogy to the original trilogy.

It's hard to rate Episode 2 and 1 though because I do think they're pretty bad but Episode 7 is just tons of strange cringe and moments that don't belong in star wars and Episode 8 is even worse. Everyone loves to think the originals are great and they are but there are some redeeming qualities to the prequels once you realize how bad Disney's era has gone with the new trilogy

I also think 3 packed more emotion than the rest of the films.  It probably is my 2nd or 3rd favorite of them all, considering I prefer the Clone Wars over any other era (except maybe TOR).  If the acting was better then it definitely would have been my favorite.

1- Empire Strikes Back
2- New Hope
3- Return Of The Jedi
4- Force Awakens
5- Revenge Of The Sith
6- Solo
7- Phantom Menace
8- Rogue One
9- Attack Of The Clones
10- Last Jedi <(Only one i actually disliked.)

Darth Maul is one of the only redeeming qualities of that movie but many scenes are really boring with Young Anakin, genuinly not intrueing. They feel slow and just don't stick to you, most kid actors are hated anyways because they can't live up to a previously established character, mostly that is.
I think that Darth Maul got way more action and respect in the Clone Wars series, especially with the interactions he has with his brother.

Havent seen Solo but for me its:
bonus non movie star wars content: KOTOR, Thrawn Trilogy (novels)
1) Empire Strikes Back
2) A New Hope
3) Return of the Jedi
bonus 3.5: Clone Wars tv series
4) Revenge of the Sith
5) Rogue One
6) Farce Awakens
7) Phantom Menace
8) The Holiday Special
9) Robot Chicken Star Wars
10) Family Guy Star Wars
11) The Last Jedi
12) Attack of the Clones

Darth Maul is the worst thing about the movie. The movie was titled after him yet he spoke 5 words in entire film had no backstory nothing. He only looked 'cool'. I agree that a big part of the movie was boring (sand planet). But political plot with trade federation and corrupt senate was really good and it makes it second best Star Wars movie (first being Revange of the Sith). Political plot is also the reason why 1-3 are better than 4-6 which have a cheesy fairy-tale like story (Yoda scenes are great though). Also I suspect that fans contributed to 2 and 3 movie not riching the full potential because they hated Jar Jar Binks who was probably set up to be Sith Lord which would be pretty one of the best plottwist of all times, if only Geroge wouldnt back down.

For me:
1. Revange of the Sith
2. Phanthom Menace
3. Clone Wars
4. Rogue One
5. Empire Strikes Back
6. Return if the Jedi
7. New Hope
Disney garbage:
8. Social Justice Warrior Awakens
9. The Last Social Justice Warrior
Didnt watch solo. Series not included aa they provide some nice background but they are really made for children.

That is an interesting list! But I do agree, Prequels had a better story but it just wasn't executed very well. Game of Thrones has done a great job of showing political espionage and it's a shame star wars didn't devote more to that on screen. The Clone Wars is a good source of canon though and Dave Filoni deserves infinite praise for the work he did.

The backstory of Darth Maul was further described in the clone wars, that's why the movie seems to be redeeming itself slightly after you realise the amount stuff he's done prior to being cut down in the Phantom Menace.
There's enough to read or watch nowadays to figure out his backstory anyways if you care, look at his interactions with the mandalorians for some interesting stories for example.

Solo will probably lose Disney just over $50 million, which is a bit less than expected. Relatively minor for them financially but it's a pretty big symbolic defeat.

Also it may be that Rian Johnson gets his trilogy scrapped (deservedly) while the Obi-Wan spin-off has been halted:
https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/films/977763/Star-Wars-Solo-FLOP-Rian-Johnson-trilogy-DROPPED-fan-backlash-Kathleen-Kennedy

Sounds like Kennedy has been allowed to go with dignity after Episode IX and the franchise is going to be re-booted. The mouse is a pretty harsh boss lol. Not gonna lie I hope Episode IX totally fails because Abrams is writing/directing and The Force Awakens was unoriginal garbage for which he was ridiculously praised for.

I pray Rian Johnson never gets to direct another movie period. Hes fucking retarded.

And despite Solo not blowing the box office away its still in the top 5 grossing films of 2018. And you cant really expect EVERY star wars film to be a HUGE hit in the box office. Look at all the Marvel movies that led up to infinity war etc several of them failed to meet expectations yet the franchise plowed ahead successfully and the movies them self were almost all good regardless of profit etc.

I think Abrams praise is deserving, he successfully brought star wars to a new generation and made the old fans happy at the same time. And of course the 7th movie in a saga is going to be unoriginal to some degree, it is star wars after all i mean what do you want honestly? Especially out of a continued Skywalker saga.

And I LOVE when movies include tons of fan service especially from such a childhood favorite like Star Wars. I WANT to be reminded of those older movies that made me fall in love with the galaxy far far away. And in fact if the movies don't stay similar to what made them great why would i even bother watching them? The fans that love star wars made it what it is today. and we want more of what made us fans in the first place. Or maybe its just me idk...

Top 5? It's ranked 13th according to Box Office Mojo. Also it's only late June, we've still got a ton of big releases until early August then there's the major Christmas/New Year period. Solo will be lucky to be in the top 25 of 2018. Star Wars is a major franchise backed by a major studio so you'd at least expect it to make a profit.

Had some nice scenes etc but maybe my expectations were too high. I still think the only good Disney Star Wars is Rogue One.

And i agree they really missed some golden opportunities in episode 7. The fact that we didn't get to the trio together is very upsetting honestly i agree.

I just couldn't really get behind her, so when she did her turn (stayed on the same side? lmao) I couldn't find it in me to care. In my opinion Ehrenreich did a very good job. I'm glad to see an iconic character portrayed well. He could have easily just tried to carbon copy Ford, but he didn't and made it his own.

Yep, but also box office sales really do not determine a movies quality. For example Last Jedi made more money then Solo and Rogue One but both are far better movies.

I mean there going to keep making star wars movies regardless, So i mean why not? And there working on an Obi-Wan film also. They will keep making movies about their characters just like Marvel and any other franchise. What else would you expect?

Solo was my favorite character as well, but that doesn't change a bad movie from being a bad one :/

I think the majority can agree that Star Wars is better when it shifts to a darker tone.  However, this kiddy nonsense seems to be the only marketable strategy, not to mention it is Disney and they have to cater to the younglings.


A kotor movie would be absolutely fantastic in concept, but I agree with Godfreid that I wouldn't trust their handling of Revan or Malak's characters.  They would probably find a way to fuck up Bastilla and turn her into one of those LGBTQ icons that the movie industry so "desperately" needs.  A Bane movie could work too, but as of right now they haven't made Zannah canon (I think).  A movie centered around Malgus and his sack of Coruscant could be great as well, but I wouldn't be entirely sold on the idea, at least in its delivery. Sure, hundreds of Jedi and Sith duking it out sound cool, but if they were to focus too much on action and less on an interesting and in-depth plot, then I fear we would get a repeat of Attack of The Clones.  Malgus and Eleena could also be one of those rare Star Wars relationships with a fantastic plot point, considering how it resolves and how deeply affected Malgus is by her.


To be honest I didn't think much of The Last Jedi after watching it in the theater, but the more I look back, the more I realize it was a steaming dumpster fire.  The humor made me cringe, the quote-on-quote representation and diversity was among the most forced in recent memory, and although this been recited many a time, the plot spits in the face of all Star Wars fans who even have the least bit of respect for lore.  It look Luke years to master the force, and even then he was subject to the perversions of the Dark side and would have been barbecued into oblivion had it not been for his daddy.  Rey masters this shit in little over a week, if not within a few days, and somehow is able to outduel the most powerful fucking Jedi to ever traverse the galaxy.  What's that? She is the new most powerful force user EVARRR?!?!?! Please, absolute bullshit.  Until I see her pulling off Nihilus level concentration I refuse to believe this character is amongst the most powerful in Star Wars.  Don't get me wrong, Daisey Ridley is not a bad actor by any means, but this writing is bonkers. Also fuck them for not having Ackbar take out the First Order flagship instead of the Jurassic Park chick.


I rest my case.

The second worst part of The Last Jedi for me is that it felt like there was a really good Star Wars movie trying to break out, but getting repeatedly squashed with tone deaf comedy and just plain awful writing.

The worst part was how flat out insulting it was to established characters. Case in point:

fucking Rose gets introduced mourning for her sister who just died and is presented as if we are supposed to feel devastated for a character literally just "introduced", but we dont even get to see Luke's reaction to Han's death... and Luke veritably ignores chewbacca... and Rey fucking translates what chewbacca is saying for him (one of the many wtf moments)

Thats all you need to say really.

Unfortunately that is how low the bar has gotten :-\.


Solo is most definitely an enjoyable movie, and a practical godsend considering the shit we got with Episode 8.  It's confusing to decipher, because many fans consider Solo shit because of TLJ's reception and Disney's spiral into retardation, while others enjoyed it due to it being so refreshing from the disaster that was TLJ.
Title: Re: The Star Wars Thread
Post by: fruitocino on July 17, 2018, 11:33:42 pm
I think the biggest issue with Solo for me was that it felt a bit forced how so much of what we know about Han's past from the old movies was squeezed into the movie.
Other than that I enjoyed it, I really really liked Woody Harrelsons character Beckett.

Also did you guys notice when Han watched that recruitment video for the imperial army that the Imperial March was actually playing inside the movie? I thought that was kinda weird

and on the subject of the Mandalorian, I have hopes that it will be something like GoT in terms of dramatic story telling since it's Jon Favreau but at this point I'm so used to being let down by Star Wars that I just don't think it will happen. It will probably end up being some gay black chick as the main protagonist who also learns to use the force because feminism!

Have faith friends. Trust me when I say Disney is in damage control mode and will not allow another movie or series to fail. The Old Republic trilogy will be amazing. And the Darth Bane stuff they are working on will probably be even better. I believe we are about to start getting some of the best star wars content we have had since ep4-6. Starting with the Mandalorian show in November. We are in for a treat!

And if im wrong. KMS.

You're going to eat your words when The Mandalorian turns out to be amazing. I hated TLJ more than most and yet I still understand that Disney has made and can continue making BANGERS. Not to mention I loved Solo. Don't be so pessimistic man. If you love star wars then have hope for its future regardless of 1 bad movie. It's not like Mickey Mouse is making these films and shows. Its different directors and produces and everything for each project. So don't just lump them all together.

You can't be sure Mandalorian or any future projects will be good. Don't be so naive to think you will know that to be true. Same goes for the opposite aswell. As of right now you might just set yourself up for being disappointed and let down, if that's to your liking go ahead and say future Disney Star Wars projects will be good.
You say don't be so pessimistic. I'd say don't be so overly optimistic.

Mfw I see Disney is making a KOTOR movie.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWaLxFIVX1s


They need to stop touching Star Wars. Wrap up the new trilogy then stop touching it. Every Star Wars movie (Rogue One included) under Disney has so far AT BEST been "meh".  Disney damage control so far has been actors, directors and producers writing off people who don't like their garbage as insecure man-babies who feel threatened by a strong female character, while continuing to push their crap quality and vomit inducing narratives.

TOR is fine as it is (in legends), it doesn't need a bunch of Disney-bot writers taking (probably major) creative liberties with it and its established lore. Unless they're going to stick to pre-established lore and give us the events pre-KOTOR 1 (Great Sith War/Mandalorian Wars) I honestly can't help but feel anything except dread at the thought of Disney touching KOTOR-era.

Yeah, but it can't really hurt anything. Either we get an epic old republic movie or we don't. But ide rather it be given a chance then just dropped. I mean, why not right? And Disney spent way to much money to just stop. And at the very least we will get some epic scenes.

And honestly, as a huge star wars fan I don't want them to stop. If they stopped, what space epics would I have to look forward to? Star Trek??? And yes I can't stand the way Disney has treated the skywalker saga and the b.s they have said. But I've never understood fans of something that just don't want more of it. Like, if you don't like the new stuff don't watch it I guess. But the chance of something great coming out is worth the b.s to me.

No, either we can an epic old republic movie or they turn one of the best, most fascinating eras in Star Wars into a dumpster fire and call us all man-babies when we criticize and don't go to watch the next movie. Given their current track record, the risk just doesn't seem worth the reward anymore.

I'll tell you why I don't want more of it, and it's because I want quality, not quantity. Pumping out a new star wars movie every year and a half that's filled with nothing but Marvel movie type humor, a disregard for lore and a disrespect to Characters, isn't good, and it's not something to look forward to or want more of. Disney views Star Wars as a cash cow to push their agenda in and their movies reflect it. I would want more movies if Disney had shown they had the capacity to produce a quality Star Wars movie, but so far they haven't.

The Mandalorian has potential.

Rogue One was not fantastic, it was just better than the Force Awakens. It's like 6/10 standing next to a 2/10. Comparatively it's a huge upgrade, but by itself it's just ok.

Calling that scene the best scene in any Star Wars film has to be a troll. It was just fan service, it doesn't come close measuring up to the iconic scenes in the Original Trilogy or even Prequel Trilogy. It was still my favorite scene in that movie though.

I’ll defend Rogue One here. The action sequences were easily some of the best in all of Star Wars. It made you feel like a part of the action in the theater tbh. It’s basically a Star Wars war movie and that’s exactly what I wanted from it. Also that Vader scene was spectacular whether it was fan service or not. I’ve always wanted to see Vader absolutely destroy people like the evil badass character he is and that’s finally what we got. That scene was done so well. The lightsaber lighting up the hallway, the desperation of the rebels, the hopelessness setting in, and then the last guy giving up the plans. That shit was awesome. Had my jaw on the floor in the theater.

There are a couple of things I liked about the first two Episodes. Tbh Episode I really was an odd movie, with the pod racing plot taking up so much time of the film. I did enjoy the race itself (especially back in the day) and of course the fight with Darth Maul. I actually liked how they set up the story for the next movies with the trade federation being a puppet and Chancellor Valorum getting voted off in favor of Palpatine.
And Episode II had Obi-Wan discovering the clone army, an awful but incredibly quotable romance and count dooku and his sailing spaceship, what's not to like about that  ;D

Yeah, I think you missed the point. I'm not saying Episode I and II are good. But even in Episode II, the Arena scene, and the duels are better than just Vader hacking down some rebels at the end of Rogue One. Duel of the Fates is also far Superior, the Vader scene is roughly equivalent to the duel between Qui-Gon and Maul on Tatooine.

I’ll defend Rogue One here. The action sequences were easily some of the best in all of Star Wars. It made you feel like a part of the action in the theater tbh. It’s basically a Star Wars war movie and that’s exactly what I wanted from it. Also that Vader scene was spectacular whether it was fan service or not.

Had my jaw on the floor in the theater.

It's not a Star Wars war movie, it's a Star Wars suicide squad movie, and it's alright. Yes, the scene with Vader was fun to watch, I didn't say otherwise, but saying it's "...probably the best scene in any Star Wars film" is a huge no from me dawg. Not even close to that good.

It's also undercut by the fact that you know the rebels are going to get the plans away from him, so it just looks like Vader failed, and furthermore it sets up that The Tantive IV was at that Battle, which no it wasn't and just shits on the dialogue between Vader and Leia in Episode 4 where she claims to be part of a diplomatic mission. Like, she's not going to have that plausible deniability if she was at the Battle and Vader wouldn't claim to have intercepted transmissions to her ship, he would just say "I watched your ship fly away literally right in front of me". It was just an excuse to give CGI Leia some face time.

A couple cool scenes couldn't carry Ep I & II, and they can't carry Rogue One.

If you're talking purely in terms of acting and atmosphere, then yes, great scene. Aside from those two things, a fun fan service scene.

And I agree it is one of the best scenes in all of star wars. That scene gives us a look at why Darth Vader was supposed to be so terrifying. Its the only time we really get to see Vader be so menacing and it is absolutely awesome. The whole scene is just amazing from start to finish.

And unpopular opinion, but I think episode 1 was great. Maybe not from a critical/technical standpoint. But when I saw it in theaters as a kid it was amazing to me. And to this day its one of my favorite star wars movies (still hate jarjar).

[close]

godfreid speaks big truth. almost all of what they have produced has either been sub-par or outright trash. rogue one was decent, as in it's the only one i didn't feel disappointed after seeing, and had a few good moments, but the new trilogy arc is one of the worst things i've ever witnessed on screen. i'm sat there cringing for the entire length of the film because of the terrible writing and brutal character assassinations being done to make room for mary sue herself and the rest of the uninteresting and boring new cast. literally what is even going on in the galaxy in this trilogy? in the original trilogy it's simple, empire rules basically everything and the rebellion opposes them. in the prequels it's pretty simple, first the republic control basically everything and then the separatists start a galactic civil war. in the new trilogy there's meant to be a new republic or something that they mentioned? but at the same time this republic is nowhere to be seen and the empire basically still exists as the first order? why are they the "resistance" if there's meant to be a whole republic that would be opposed to the first order? the films are so poorly thought out, incoherent and stupid that i can't understand why anybody has any faith in disney star wars at this point.

the prequels may have failed in many places, like creating a compelling anakin to make the fall to the dark side meaningful, but at least they were logically consistent within the star wars universe and the events made sense following on from each other. despite this being the absolute basic level that a trilogy needs to meet, the new films have failed to hit even that bar. the prequels films are also enjoyable to watch because of the action and because we know what it leads to and seeing that journey is interesting by those merits alone.

the mandalorian looks like it could be good and maybe the new kenobi series will be too, but you're foolish to hold out hope on these things being good after the trash we've been served so far.

The Mandalorian has a great cast. Pedro Pascal will kill it as usual. Written by Jon Favreau and George Lucas. Dave Filoni is an executive producer along with Favreau.

It's not one of the best scenes in all of Star Wars unless you're talking about atmosphere and acting, in which case you could maybe have a case.

No, I just refuse to give movies a pass based on 1-2 enjoyable scenes when the vast majority of it (in Solo and Rogue One) is easily forgettable, or in the NT's case, straight disrespectful garbage.

Disney is just too fucking soft most of the time. I mean seriously, do you guys remember the later seasons of the Clone Wars when it aired? That shit was BRUTAL. Political intrigue, graphic murder, the physiological affects of war on men bred specifically for it, this was by no means a kid show. It was capable of actually showcasing the vastness of the Star Wars galaxy, as well as exploring mature themes, to a bunch of middle schoolers hooked on tech. 10 year old me didn’t know what to make of it initially.

Rebels (for the most part) makes me want to cringe and Resistance is a joke. They completely lack that dark edge which made their predecessors so good to watch. The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan probably won’t be much different.

Gritty, fully fledged Star Wars might not even ever make a comeback unless Disney decides to take a big gamble. Of course, with merchandise being their biggest money maker, you can bet that their target audience will be children for a long time.

Bruh in the trailer for the Mandalorian a dude gets cut in half by a door lmao. Also the guy that made the Clone Wars is an executive producer and will direct an episode. I assume since it is a show on their streaming platform that it will be a step above the movies in terms of gritty-ness and being dark.

I am going to see it tonight at midnight. Can't wait. And I have a feeling it is going to be pretty good. Especially since the critics are saying it is bad. My logic is that I hated TLJ and the critics loved it, now the critics hate Rise Of Skywalker so I will probably love it.

I've also heard its made for Star Wars fans. And at this point, all I want is proper fan service to end this saga. I believe JJ will deliver.

Either way, if you're not poor and you're slightly interested, then go see it in theaters. This is the LAST Skywalker movie that will probably ever come out. And as fans that have loved this shit since childhood, we should see it through. For better or for worse.

It is the part that matters the most. A lot of the movie was very good though and I think it deserves some credit.

I really enjoyed the movie. It definitely redeemed the failure that was TLJ. The ending was good imo, however it could have been better with a few changes. But i feel they had to rush it due to having to fix so many of the problems that TLJ created. Really the only problems that the movie had were because they had to do so much to try and repair the damages caused by TLJ. But overall I would rate it a solid 8/10. This movie was so much better then TLJ and i think it was even better than Force Awakens. I loved all the new characters and loved that they cut out all the b.s that The Last Jedi tried to introduce. The story feels complete now and I am satisfied with the ending even if they missed some good opportunities. It isn't perfect but it hits the mark for me.

I would love to have a deeper discussion but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. If you like star wars you really need to see it. It is certainly worth it.

I wouldn't want to think too much into it. They have had difficulties defining the properties of the Force since the EU began. The best example here would be how Kylo managed to bring Rey back rather easily. Which is odd considering how every Sith Lord prior to him had attempted to achieve immortality/resurrection and failed (or came at a heavy price).

Not Plagueis, not Palpatine, not Nihilus, not Vitiate, not Sion, not Naga fucking Sadow, but Ben Solo. Ridiculous if you ask me.

Han was not a force ghost. He was more of a memory that was shown in a more physical and literal sense. But he certainly was not a force ghost and they made that clear. He had no blue aura/glow around him and Kylo literally said he was just a memory. Also yes I agree that the biggest missed opportunity is not actually seeing Hayden Christenson return as a force ghost. Hearing him was great but we really needed to see him as a Ghost at the end. And I also think it would have been better to see him talking to Kylo instead of Han but I still enjoyed seeing Han in that moment none the less and it made sense overall. But that was one of the missed opportunities for sure. He should of at least been next to Luke and Leia at the very end. Or showed up to help Rey in her big moment. But really just hearing his voice a few times was enough to please me, like at least they did that. But even with the missed opportunity, I really enjoyed it all a lot. Even if it wasn't perfect.

And referring to Kylo being able to revive Rey, I think it is a little crazy. But Palpatine does say that the bond and power between Kylo and Rey is something extremely rare and powerful that almost no other Jedi and Sith have ever had. Atleast in a LONG time. (Can't remember his exact words.)

My biggest problem with this movie is that they took absolutely no risks whatsoever.

Spoiler
Chewy dead killed by Rey making her contemplate her powers and if she really is destined to be evil? Nah he was on a different ship. C3PO losing his memory and having all the build up to that moment? Nah 20 minutes later he gets it all restored. Woah the emperors lightning takes down the entire rebel fleet? Nah he stops and every ship recovers and destroys a fleet of thousands of star destroyers. Ben Solo thrown down a shaft like his grandpa did to the emperor? Nah he’s back to revive Rey. Rey dies in the ultimate sacrifice and ends the Palpatine line (potentially)? Nah the last Skywalker comes and gives his life so she could live. A power Anakin turned evil to learn and Ben does it outta nowhere.

This movie would have been way better if Rey ended up dying and Ben Solo being the last Skywalker. He could have gone into exile to Tatooine or repayed his debt to society by training the next generation of Jedi, but no of course they don’t have the balls to do that. The ending was so rushed. Didn’t get to enjoy any moment. Palpatine died like a fucking bitch and there was no epic fight. Anakin should have been a part of defeating Palpatine not just his words of encouragement. Wasted opportunities left and right for this movie.

Like I said before if the critics don't like it the audience probably will. Pretty much every movie a critic has ever said is bad I usually end up liking, with some exceptions. And that stands true with Rise Of Skywalker. And seems most people feel the same.

This was definitely my favourite movie out of the 3. But as you guys said already, a lot of missed opportunities. I feel like the ending of the trilogy with this movie could have been SO much better if the build up through TFA and TLJ would have been done differently, or be there at all! While i felt that TFA was bland in character development before, now even more so since they chose the "Rey becomes a Skywalker" ending. TLJ of course took most of the story down a radically different path which then leads to them (among other things) bringing back palpatine and his secret society back there... Really makes you wonder how the trilogy would have turned out if they had a single director with the overall story in mind to direct all 3 movies.
I did like the yellow lightsaber at the end though.

Yeah the yellow saber was sick and it looked to be a double-bladed saber like Darth Mauls. Really wish we could have seen her fight with it. And you can tell it would be a more natural choice of weapon for her since she was used to using a staff already. And i agree with you it was the best of the 3 and really good imo. I just wish they didn't miss some key opportunities. Which seems to be a mutual agreement between most people. It really shows how bad TLJ fucked everything up. If JJ had just directed all 3 it would certainly have been even better. And we would have 3 good films instead of 1/2.

+ Music Score
+ Lando (Although his appearance on that random planet is just a convenient plot device).
+ Ian McDiarmid portrayal of Palps
+ CGI/Effects
+ Cameos
+ Adam Driver
+ Rose reduced to a background character

- Painfully obvious Disney had no plan for this trilogy.
- I disliked the last jedi, this is not how they should of address the problems with that film.
- Opening crawl reads like it was written by a 13 year old kid
- Palps forced in movie without any explanation.
- Pacing issues in the first half.
- Exposition, Exposition,  Exposition,  Exposition,  Exposition,  Exposition,  Exposition,  Exposition,  Exposition,  Exposition,  Exposition.
- Leia's death was dumb. Leia should have been CGI/deep faked instead of reusing old scenes.
- C3PO's data wipe subplot.
- Knights of Ren do nothing, just like Cpt Phasma was created to sell toys.
- Daisy Riddley can't act and/or has bad dialogue.
- Finn: "REEYYYYYYY" "REEYYYYYYY" "REEYYYYYYY"
- Zori and the horse riding chick while I liked the characters, couldn't care less about them. Introducing new characters in the last and finale film, whats the point?
- "I'M THE SPY" scene was cringe. (Spy was too obvious from the get go)
- Forced shot of the two women kissing to appease Disney stakeholders and SJW.
- Lightsaber fighting was meh.
- Rey's parentage..... I preferred them when they were "Junkers"
- Rey killing palps basically retcons the original and prequel films.
- Each of the sequel movies have used Planet Killing weapons as plot devices. 
- Massive plot holes, more questions created then answered.]

I could write more.. but yeah those are the main ones.

now that ive had more time to dwell on it here are my full thoughts
overall 4/10 movie
would watch once (just cuz its star wars) but not again
Spoiler
+aayla and ahsoka voices (kms if that means ahsoka is dead)
+chewbaccas reaction to leia's death actually made me really sad
+daisy ridleys reaction to chewbaccas "death" was really good
+less rose
+apparently theres a legion named after revan. if only we could get vitiate canon again ):
+adam driver was a gamer
+C3P0 was very enjoyable and i liked him throughout
+D0 was neat
+liked luke's force ghost scene
+music excellent as always

-the pacing of the entire movie was garbage
-didnt care for the new characters, nor did i care if they lived, didnt feel any emotion towards them
-the only scenes were i felt into the movie were ones with established characters from the old trilogy (ex luke, leia, chewbacca)
-hux saying "im the spy" was retarded
-making anakins sacrifice and the prophecy basically irrelevant "oh anakin just inconvenienced the sith, he didnt destroy them"
-finn never told rey nor poe what he wanted to say the entire movie
-knights of ren, i was excited to see them fight and then they just got memed
-almost entirely ignoring snap wexley's death even tho he was the main character in 3 books
-no force ghost anakin
-rey/kylo revive. it wouldve been hilarious if they just kept dying and reviving each other over and over. that legit would have made a 10/10 movie ending.
-never explained how palpatine survived
-who tf had intercourse with palpatine
-how were all those ships created? is it like a new star forge or something?
-rey calling herself "rey skywalker"

i hope they make more books or something to explain this becuase its really confusing

Next trilogy will be Bane or something Old Republic related. And will likely have a Mandalorian/Solo/Rogue One type of style and theme. And as for Kenobi, it will be a live-action show like Mando on Disney+ featuring Ewan McGregor reprising his role as Obi-Wan.

Well now we know you're not a real star wars fan Wind... Lightsabers come in just about every color of the rainbow. Mace Windu's was purple. And several other Jedi had different colored sabers. For example, Jedi Master Plo Koon used an orange saber.

Yeah, Ahsoka and the Temple Guards used yellow lightsabers. To be honest I expected a double bladed one instead, it would have fit her staff wielding in the previous films. Also I wouldn't use Plo Koon as an example, his saber turned blue sometime after ROTS and was declared non canon, and the photo you used are mostly colors from KOTOR 2 (which isn't canon either). Fallen Order seems to be the first actual appearance of new colors since Legends became a thing.

My biggest problem with this movie is that they took absolutely no risks whatsoever.

Spoiler
Chewy dead killed by Rey making her contemplate her powers and if she really is destined to be evil? Nah he was on a different ship. C3PO losing his memory and having all the build up to that moment? Nah 20 minutes later he gets it all restored. Woah the emperors lightning takes down the entire rebel fleet? Nah he stops and every ship recovers and destroys a fleet of thousands of star destroyers. Ben Solo thrown down a shaft like his grandpa did to the emperor? Nah he’s back to revive Rey. Rey dies in the ultimate sacrifice and ends the Palpatine line (potentially)? Nah the last Skywalker comes and gives his life so she could live. A power Anakin turned evil to learn and Ben does it outta nowhere.

This movie would have been way better if Rey ended up dying and Ben Solo being the last Skywalker. He could have gone into exile to Tatooine or repayed his debt to society by training the next generation of Jedi, but no of course they don’t have the balls to do that. The ending was so rushed. Didn’t get to enjoy any moment. Palpatine died like a fucking bitch and there was no epic fight. Anakin should have been a part of defeating Palpatine not just his words of encouragement. Wasted opportunities left and right for this movie.

Well now we know you're not a real star wars fan Wind... Lightsabers come in just about every color of the rainbow. Mace Windu's was purple. And several other Jedi had different colored sabers. For example, Jedi Master Plo Koon used an orange saber.

And any movie can be picked apart from a critical standpoint. But the movie was enjoyable to a majority of fans and viewers, myself included. The movie certainly isn't perfect and few movies ever are. But it is still a good Star Wars movie. And did the best it could with what it had after TLJ.

Bruh I know people have different coloured lightsabers lmao you don't need to show me 3 pictures of people using coloured lightsabers. Usually there are reasons as to why certain characters have certain coloured lightsabers.. in Rey's case it seems more just like "hurrr durr yellow iz different and COOL and she the main character so yanno here you go, you're special!" rather than you know maybe explaining why or how she has a yellow lightsaber to begin with. It seems random/pandering as fuck.

Even Mark Hamill can't say anything good about the movies. You honestly must be braindead if you enjoyed the first two movies to any extent. I'll give this one some credit, it wasn't as bad as the other two, but it certainly still is bad. But yeah, I'm allowed to say the movie is dogshit because that's my opinion, I'm also allowed to say why I think it is a dogshit movie because that is also my opinion. But yeah I'll make sure to not say why I didn't like it next time so I don't get your panties in a twist...

Imo the whole scenario was shit Disney was like „Man Deathstar is getting boring let’s just put an Deathstar fleet into the movie, such a great idea“. But it was not. I mean what is this the whole fleet gets destroyed bc „Finn“ is killing their commando ship with their own weapons. And Palpatine gets completely demolished by Rey??? The just could have added an Deathstar would have been better than an fleet which died in 1 combat

= Star Wars 9 was the complete same movie like Star Wars 6 only with an Deathstar fleet tho

This thread does not account for all star wars fans lol. It is a very small minority. Like TINY. And of course, this trilogy was the worst yet. But I don't think that makes it completely horrible. I'm in several star wars groups and forums outside of FSE and I can tell you most fans really did enjoy Rise Of Skywalker. The Force Awakens is a 50/50 with people, and like 90% of people hate TLJ. And these groups are hardcore life long star wars fans like myself. Star Wars is my number one. I watched the original trilogy in theaters when they re-released in 1997 when I was a kid. And I've seen every single one on release day since and I saw the prequels multiple times in theaters. My room is covered in Star Wars posters. And my dad has a massive toy collection of Star Wars. Not even going to mention all the games etc. And guess what, I liked Rise Of Skywalker. And I know tons of old heads that did as well, people that literally grew up with the first release of the original trilogy. Using FSE as your sample size for "real fans" is just dumb man. Look around and I promise you'll see I'm not making this shit up.

Also don't think that I'm saying these movies were amazing. I hated TLJ. I mean really hated it. And I know Force Awakens and Rise Of Skywalker have some horrible flaws. And lack so much when compared to the other trilogies. And they could have been SO much better. But I still enjoyed them. And I think they are still decent Star Wars movies, even if I don't completely agree with them. (TLJ is unredeemable and completely horrible so exclude that from everything I'm saying.)

My biggest problem with this movie is that they took absolutely no risks whatsoever.

Spoiler
Chewy dead killed by Rey making her contemplate her powers and if she really is destined to be evil? Nah he was on a different ship. C3PO losing his memory and having all the build up to that moment? Nah 20 minutes later he gets it all restored. Woah the emperors lightning takes down the entire rebel fleet? Nah he stops and every ship recovers and destroys a fleet of thousands of star destroyers. Ben Solo thrown down a shaft like his grandpa did to the emperor? Nah he’s back to revive Rey. Rey dies in the ultimate sacrifice and ends the Palpatine line (potentially)? Nah the last Skywalker comes and gives his life so she could live. A power Anakin turned evil to learn and Ben does it outta nowhere.

This movie would have been way better if Rey ended up dying and Ben Solo being the last Skywalker. He could have gone into exile to Tatooine or repayed his debt to society by training the next generation of Jedi, but no of course they don’t have the balls to do that. The ending was so rushed. Didn’t get to enjoy any moment. Palpatine died like a fucking bitch and there was no epic fight. Anakin should have been a part of defeating Palpatine not just his words of encouragement. Wasted opportunities left and right for this movie.

Well now we know you're not a real star wars fan Wind... Lightsabers come in just about every color of the rainbow. Mace Windu's was purple. And several other Jedi had different colored sabers. For example, Jedi Master Plo Koon used an orange saber.

And any movie can be picked apart from a critical standpoint. But the movie was enjoyable to a majority of fans and viewers, myself included. The movie certainly isn't perfect and few movies ever are. But it is still a good Star Wars movie. And did the best it could with what it had after TLJ. If you didn't like it that's fine, but to go around saying its DOGSHIT is just complete BULLSHIT. TLJ was DOGSHIT. This doesn't even come close to that level of trash. And I'm not sure why everyone wants to act like a fucking movie critic nowadays. Just watch the movie and enjoy it or don't.

Bruh I know people have different coloured lightsabers lmao you don't need to show me 3 pictures of people using coloured lightsabers. Usually there are reasons as to why certain characters have certain coloured lightsabers.. in Rey's case it seems more just like "hurrr durr yellow iz different and COOL and she the main character so yanno here you go, you're special!" rather than you know maybe explaining why or how she has a yellow lightsaber to begin with. It seems random/pandering as fuck.

I'm pretty sure most people aren't fans of the new movie and actually just the trilogy in general, as you can see from the posts on this thread. Though this is also anecdotal, everyone I know said the movie was meh/shit. This whole trilogy was a disgrace to film/Star Wars and IT IS DOGSHIT. D O G S H I T. Disney fucked up, when do they not? Even Mark Hamill can't say anything good about the movies. You honestly must be braindead if you enjoyed the first two movies to any extent. I'll give this one some credit, it wasn't as bad as the other two, but it certainly still is bad. But yeah, I'm allowed to say the movie is dogshit because that's my opinion, I'm also allowed to say why I think it is a dogshit movie because that is also my opinion. But yeah I'll make sure to not say why I didn't like it next time so I don't get your panties in a twist... To me though the only redeemable thing about this trilogy to me is Kylo Ren/Ben Solo, badass character with a decent arc.
[close]
I was implying you are not a real fan because you didn't know they had other color sabers. And the fact that you just watched this whole trilogy within the past week, not because you disliked this movie. Also, we aren't talking about the first 2 movies in this trilogy we are talking about THIS movie so not sure what that has to do with anything. And you said yourself this one was better than the first two.

And I have spoken to at least 20 different people that all said they liked the movie despite its obvious flaws. And to say most people didn't like this movie is complete bullshit considering actual stats prove otherwise.

Out of 40,000 viewers, 86% liked the movie. And that number will only grow.

Read the spoiler in my last post, also not watching the new trilogy doesn't not make me a fan lol in fact most of the actual fans of Star Wars hate the new trilogy including TFA and the newest one. I just wanted to avoid seeing any bad movies which I knew was very likely going into them. It seems to me the people that liked the newest movie/TFA are casual watchers of star wars/kids. I don't really take into account critic scores because movie critics are actually fucked as you can see they gave TFA a 93/100 LMAO when it is a universally shitted on movie by Star Wars fans. Just read this thread Marc and see for yourself

This thread does not account for all star wars fans lol. It is a very small minority. Like TINY. And of course, this trilogy was the worst yet. But I don't think that makes it completely horrible. I'm in several star wars groups and forums outside of FSE and I can tell you most fans really did enjoy Rise Of Skywalker. The Force Awakens is a 50/50 with people, and like 90% of people hate TLJ. And these groups are hardcore life long star wars fans like myself. Star Wars is my number one. I watched the original trilogy in theaters when they re-released in 1997 when I was a kid.

Honestly TFA was probably the most enjoyable. It was the unknown of what was going to happen. We got introduced to new characters and got to see some of our favorite old characters. Yeah it followed the same plot as ANH but that was to introduce the new generation to Star Wars. I think it felt the most like a Star Wars movie.

It was a pretty good set-up movie. It’s just unfortunate that TLJ kinda tries too hard to be different. It really fucked up the trajectory of the trilogy. I do appreciate the effort to do something different, it just wasn’t executed well. I honestly liked certain parts of that movie a lot.
 I’d have removed the Finn and Rose storyline. I would’ve made It so that Luke actually showed up to fight Kylo. Why have him die in the end anyways? That’s what pissed me off.
That Yoda scene was actually fantastic.

Rise of Skywalker is a 7/10. It’s a popcorn flick made to appease most audiences. That’s all it is. It was like the main characters were playing on the easiest difficulty. No risks were taken. Had a ton of potential that was wasted because they were scared to do anything. Marvel knew what they were doing with Infinity War and Endgame. Losses need to happen in order for the ending to mean much of anything.

Star wars is for kids. You're not their target audience. 7-13 year olds probably liked the sequels.

I think the reason Mandalorian is being widely accepted as "okay" is because it's target audience is older, I guess what 20+ year olds?

Easy rule of thumb, if it's got a wide toy line you're too old for it.

Just saying, Disney who by extension owns that website has been manipulating numbers. That 86% is the same now with 77,000 verified reviews as it was with little over 6,000, which is more or less statistically impossible.

The majority of more passionate fans seem to dislike the new trilogy, most who like them seems like the more casual viewers. The people defending the movies online in discussions at least are a small miniority, and videos criticising the movies have garnered millions of views and usually overwhelming like to dislike ratios.

Marks is 100% correct. Star Wars was made for kids. Even if it doesn't seem like it sometimes. I saw the prequels as a child and i loved them, yet my father wasn't a big fan. He hated jar jar and i loved him. Also stands true as to why the prequels are actually quite popular and well liked now adays. Because the people that are online the most to talk about them were kids when they released. And i know my little brother really likes the new sequels and he started them we he was younger. There are also tons of kids that love Rey and this new trilogy. It is mainly for kids at the end of day. And just because something is made with kids in mind doesn't mean that adults cant or wont enjoy it.

Bruh I know people have different coloured lightsabers lmao you don't need to show me 3 pictures of people using coloured lightsabers. Usually there are reasons as to why certain characters have certain coloured lightsabers.. in Rey's case it seems more just like "hurrr durr yellow iz different and COOL and she the main character so yanno here you go, you're special!" rather than you know maybe explaining why or how she has a yellow lightsaber to begin with.

I'm pretty sure most people aren't fans of the new movie and actually just the trilogy in general, as you can see from the posts on this thread. Though this is also anecdotal, everyone I know said the movie was meh/shit. This whole trilogy was a disgrace to film/Star Wars and IT IS DOGSHIT. D O G S H I T. Disney fucked up, when do they not? Even Mark Hamill can't say anything good about the movies. You honestly must be braindead if you enjoyed the first two movies to any extent. I'll give this one some credit, it wasn't as bad as the other two, but it certainly still is bad. But yeah, I'm allowed to say the movie is dogshit because that's my opinion, I'm also allowed to say why I think it is a dogshit movie because that is also my opinion. But yeah I'll make sure to not say why I didn't like it next time so I don't get your panties in a twist... To me though the only redeemable thing about this trilogy to me is Kylo Ren/Ben Solo, badass character with a decent arc.

I was implying you are not a real fan because you didn't know they had other color sabers. And the fact that you just watched this whole trilogy within the past week, not because you disliked this movie. Also, we aren't talking about the first 2 movies in this trilogy we are talking about THIS movie so not sure what that has to do with anything.

And I have spoken to at least 20 different people that all said they liked the movie despite its obvious flaws. And to say most people didn't like this movie is complete bullshit considering actual stats prove otherwise.

My biggest problem with this movie is that they took absolutely no risks whatsoever.

Chewy dead killed by Rey making her contemplate her powers and if she really is destined to be evil? Nah he was on a different ship. C3PO losing his memory and having all the build up to that moment? Nah 20 minutes later he gets it all restored. Woah the emperors lightning takes down the entire rebel fleet? Nah he stops and every ship recovers and destroys a fleet of thousands of star destroyers. Ben Solo thrown down a shaft like his grandpa did to the emperor? Nah he’s back to revive Rey. Rey dies in the ultimate sacrifice and ends the Palpatine line (potentially)? Nah the last Skywalker comes and gives his life so she could live. A power Anakin turned evil to learn and Ben does it outta nowhere.

This movie would have been way better if Rey ended up dying and Ben Solo being the last Skywalker. He could have gone into exile to Tatooine or repayed his debt to society by training the next generation of Jedi, but no of course they don’t have the balls to do that. The ending was so rushed. Didn’t get to enjoy any moment. Palpatine died like a fucking bitch and there was no epic fight. Anakin should have been a part of defeating Palpatine not just his words of encouragement. Wasted opportunities left and right for this movie.

This is from reddit and it would explain alot if true:

Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/saltierthancrait/comments/eisnd8/heres_what_ive_been_told_from_a_source_that/

TROS "JJ Abrams Cut"

Here's what I've been told from a source that worked on TROS.


Since shortly after release weekend, I’ve been corresponding with someone who worked closely on the production of TROS and works for one of the major companies I cannot disclose here. I have verified the source to my satisfaction. To protect the source, I am rewording what we spoke about over the last two weeks and am submitting it to you in bullet point format I have written based on what they told me. The TLDR is that they were upset with the final product of TROS and wanted to share their perspective on how it went down and where it went wrong.

The leakers for TROS had an agenda and are tied to Disney directly. My source confessed that they have an agenda as well in that they struggle with ignoring what’s been happening to someone who they think doesn’t deserve it.

JJ always treated everyone on and offset with respect so my source’s agenda is that what Disney has done to JJ and how much they screwed him over should be something people are at least aware of, whether you like him as a filmmaker or not.

Disney was one of the studios who were in that Bad Robot bidding war last year. Disney never had much interest in BR as a company but they did in JJ because they saw WB (who JJ went with in the end) as a major threat.

JJ is very successful at bringing franchises back like Mission Impossible, Star Trek and Star Wars. WB is struggling with DC and aside from Wonder Woman, DC is still seen as a bit of a joke in its current state by the GA.

WB wants Abrams for some DC projects. My source said that this generation’s Star Wars is the MCU, and Marvel’s biggest threat is a well operational DC. They want to keep DC in the limbo that they’re in right now. Abrams jumpstarting that franchise with something like a successful, audience-pleasing Superman movie makes them nervous. Their goal is to make JJ look bad to potential investors/shareholders.

My source mentioned this shortly after the premiere: “The TROS we saw last night was not the TROS we thought we worked on”.

JJ was devastated and blindsided by this. He’s been feeling down over the last 6 months because of some of the ridiculous demands Disney had that changed his movie’s story. While the scenes were shot, a lot of the changes were made in post-production and the audio was rerecorded and altered. My source said they’ve never seen anything like this happen before. He’s the director and he wasn’t in the know about what they were doing behind his back.

Apparently, JJ felt threatened over the month leading up to the premiere.

Rian was never meant to do IX despite some rumors that he was.

JJ was brought back by Iger, not KK. Disney insisted on more fan service, less controversy.

JJs original agreement when he signed on was indicating he would have way more creative control than he did on TFA. It became evident this wasn’t the case only a couple of weeks into shooting when the trouble with meddling started.

JJ wanted to do some scenes he thought were important but Disney shut it down citing budgetary reasons.

May 2019: JJ argued that those scenes were crucial. He had to let go of one of the scenes. The other scene he insisted on was approved at first. He did reshoots and additional photography in July. The new scene was shot at BR in October.

The “ending that will blow your mind” was a part of this. Older actors were included like Hayden, Ewan and Samuel and anyone who wasn’t animated. The force ghosts weren’t meant to be voices because they shot that footage on camera. The actors were in costumes. Rey was supposed to be surrounded by the force ghosts to serve as sort of a barrier between her and the Sith surrounding them.

My source thinks but can’t 100% confirm that this is because of China. It’s an office talk of sorts. Some VFX people claimed they got a list of approved shades of blue they could use on the Luke force ghosts. Cutting this out was when the bad blood turned into a nightmare for JJ because the movie he was making was suddenly unrecognizable to him in almost every way.

My source knows JJ well enough to know that he’s just not the yelling type but apparently in a meeting he yelled something along the lines of “Why don’t you just put ‘directed and written by Lucasfilm’ then?” My source wasn’t present for that exchange but knows some who were.

Disney demanded they shoot some scenes that would have things in it for merchandise. “They fly now” is one of them. It’s also JJ’s least favorite scene. At a November screening of a 2:37 cut, he cringed, groaned and laughed when the scene was on.

My source says that JJ was most likely not joking when he said “you’re right” in the interview where they asked him about TROS criticism.

JJ’s original early November cut was 3 hours 2 minutes long.

In January, JJ suggested that they turn this into two films. My source told me this well before Terrio mentioned it in an interview a couple of days ago. When Disney said no, JJ was content with making this 3 hours long.

Over a period of 9 months JJ started realizing that one by one his ideas and whole scenes were being thrown out the window or entirely altered by people who have “no business meddling with the creatives”.

They were not on the same page when it came to creative decisions and it became obvious that Disney had an agenda in addition to wanting to please shareholders. Disney could “afford messing up IX for the sake of the bigger picture” when it came to protecting things unrelated to IX.

The cut JJ eventually and hesitantly agreed to in early December was 2:37 minutes long. It wasn’t the cut we saw which he wouldn’t have approved of (and which is 2:22 long). Apart from the force ghosts, there were other crucial and emotional scenes missing. The cut they released looked “chopped and taped back together with weak scotch tape” (JJ's words).

The movie opened with Rey’s training. Her first scene with Rose was shortly after Rey damaged BB-8 during the training. Rose made a silly joke about how Poe is going to kill her for damaging BB-8. There was a moment where Rey took a minute to process what just happened when she saw that vision during training. She looked distressed and worried. The next scene was noise as the Falcon was landing and Rey runs over there. Those two women who kissed at the end were visible in this shot and they were holding hands. One of them ran towards the Falcon as it landed.

Kylo on Mustafar scene was 2 mins longer. There was a moment where Kylo seemed a bit dizzy and his vision was shown as blurry for a second. Almost as if time half-stopped while everyone in the background was slow-mo fighting. Kylo hears Vader's breathing, then shakes his head and time goes back to moving at a normal pace and he jumps right back into the battle (the scene from the trailer where he knocks that guy down which did end up in the movie later).

They cut some of the scenes from the lightspeed skipping segment. Some of the planets that were cut were Kashyyyk, Naboo, and Kamino.

The scene where the tie fighters are chasing them through the iceberg - those corridors were inspired by a video game JJ used to play in the 90s called Rebel Assault 2 (the third level in the game with the tunnels on Endor specifically).

Jannah was confirmed to be Lando’s daughter.

Rey not only healed Kylo's face scar but she killed Kylo when she healed Ben. Kylo ceased to exist when Rey healed him. My source mentioned that some people assume it was Han Solo who healed him but that isn’t true and that wasn't Han Solo. That was Leia using her own memories as well as Ben's to create a physical manifestation of his own thoughts to nudge him towards what he needed to do. That was her own way of communicating that with him. And it wasn't possible without her dying in the process. She made the ultimate sacrifice for her son and this flew over people's heads with the Disney cut.

The late November cut (the last cut JJ approved of) had scenes with Rose and Rey still. JJ wanted to give her a more meaningful arc. Disney felt that that was too risky too. My source mentioned that Chris Terrio said that it was because of the Leia scenes but this is only partially true because she had four other scenes including two with Rey/Daisy that Leia was not in.

Finn wanting to tell Rey something was always meant to be force sensitivity. In the 3 hour cut, it’s explicitly stated. There was a moment when Jannah and he were running on top of that star destroyer and Finn needed to unlock or move something and he force-moved it and acted surprised when it happened. This was replaced with a CGI’d BB-8 fixing whatever he needed to fix on there.

Babu Frik was nearly cut because some execs at Disney thought he would be the new Jar Jar. They are really surprised that people love him this much. He was JJ's idea and was created in collaboration with some artists and puppeteers. The personality was all JJ.

There were a bunch of scenes where Rey and Kylo (separately) went through quiet moments of reflection to deal with what they were going through. On her part, her going through the realization that there's something sinister about her past. Him going through regret and remorse but trying to shut it out. My source said that the Kylo scenes were especially amazing because of Adam's performance and how he managed to portray that inner turmoil. It provided much more context and added deeper meaning to both his battle with Rey and the final redemption arc at the end. It didn't happen so suddenly and it was more structured than what we got.

The Kylo/Rey scene where he dies was at least 4 minutes longer with more dialogue. Ben was always supposed to die. Source also added that if he wasn’t, then that might’ve been in an earlier draft which they haven’t read. The first draft they read included Lando (the first few didn’t). The Reylo kiss and Ben’s death was not part of the reshoots. It was a part of the re-editing. Even the cut that JJ thought was coming out earlier this month had a longer version of that scene than what was shown in the theatrical cut.

JJ was against the Reylo kiss (or Reylo in general). This was Disney's attempt to please both sides of the fandom.

JJ was not happy with where TLJ took the story. The final result is a mix of that story and the story told by Disney and whoever they tried to impress (“certainly not the fans”). JJ is gutted over the final result. Star Wars means a lot to him. He had to sacrifice large chunks of the story in TFA but he was promised more creative control on TROS and instead the leash they had him on was only tightened as time went by. A source said that this is the one franchise and the one piece of his work that he didn't want to mess up and instead it turned into his worst nightmare. When he found out that he was blindsided with the cut they presented, he said "what the fuck??" when Kylo was fighting the Knights of Ren at the end and the Williams music that was used for it was not what he wanted at all. He seemed to think it was out of place.

JJ's cut still exists and “will always exist”. We most likely will never see it unless “someone accidentally leaks it.”

Ok, so there you have it. If there are questions, I will try to follow up with my source but it’s up to them if they want to share more so I cannot guarantee an answer.

Edit: I forgot one thing that the source wanted included, concerning FinnPoe in TROS:

The source asked about FinnPoe after seeing Oscar Isaac's comment about how Disney didn't want it to be a thing. This is true. JJ fought to make this happen. This is why Oscar is blaming Disney. It's not just a random throwaway comment. He knows for a fact that it was Disney because these discussions happened. The main cast is insanely close with JJ and are just as pissed, though seemingly more outspoken about it than JJ. During TFA, Disney was hesitant to hire John Boyega because a woman was front and center so they deemed that risky enough so bringing in a male lead who's black made them nervous. JJ fought to make that happen for about nine months before getting approval. The same issue came up when JJ fought to have Finn&Poe in TROS but he lost that battle as he lost many creative battles for this film. Many people, JJ included, came to the realization during this production that the story really is told by shareholders/investors instead of the creatives or anyone at Disney specifically. He tried to make a lot of things happen and was shut down because of this. They had him on a leash and many blame TLJ for the stricter creative approach.

RoS was boring and was putting me to sleep half way through. I can’t even remember half the movie. I think having a different director for TLJ hurt the third movie, cause now JJ has to re-explain stuff that was told differently in TLJ. If he did the second movie and the storyline actually made sense then maybe it could have been a decent ending, but he had to fix so much stuff from TLJ in a short time.


It could have been good if Rey did what Grandpa wanted her to do. Would have been a twist no one would have saw coming. Also hated the ending when she didn’t say her real last name.

And as others have said, JJ didn’t want to take a risk with anything. The new movies have been awful outside of Rogue One. Glad we got Mandalorian.

Marceaux if you can’t understand the fact that by explaining something you disagree with your own opinion, let’s speak french on steam.

Havent posted on here in 10 months so I think fully agreeing with you here is a good start. Absolutely awful and borderline comedic at times.

Almost as many plot holes and lore breaking moments as the Last Jedi.

-Force ghosts being able to manipulate physical objects are the new hyperspace kamikaze in terms of hilarious brokenness/over-poweredness.

-Rey destroys a transport ship BY ACCIDENT with a bit of lightning but Sidious' enormous fuck-off lightning storm is basically just a temporary electric tazer.

-Rey absolutely sucks at the basic lightsaber training again at the start of the movie then they totally drop that angle and she is an elite duelist 30 minutes later (thought they were gonna have her build her own light-staff which would have been cool).

-Sidious has a dozen Snokes just chilling in pods and is apparently capable of creating extremely powerful force users from scratch, shame he doesnt use this for anything else

-Hux's "plan" makes absolute fuck-all sense and just when you think theyre gonna do something interesting with the character they make him retarded comic relief for the last time

-Finn has multiple interesting introductory conversations with people but none of them are actually explored

-Rey just intrinsically knows even more force powers cause fuck it why not

-every character outside the main group literally just pops in as a plot device to hand them some mcguffin then fucks off (lando and the dagger, Poe's forgettable love interest and the chip that can get you into any star destroyer cause that totally exists for some fucking reason)

-the path to Sidious' layer is through that storm or whatever but only from one side, you could literally go around it

-Star destroyers need a communication array to launch but it has to be ONE SINGLE ARRAY BROADCASTING TO THE ENTIRE FLEET - cause yeah that makes sense

-Sidious has an entire, fully manned fleet of star destroyers armed with planet killers, where did all the people come from

-Sidious has repeatedly stated that he does not want to rule over a galaxy of the dead so that makes fuck all sense too (planet killers)

-Star Destroyers cant have their shields up in atmosphere - literally an asspull that violates even disney canon rules (there are shielded capital ships in atmosphere in both Rebels and the Clone Wars as well as Rogue One...)

-*rebellion fleet arrives "Thats not an army, its just normal people" - hell no thats a gigantic fucking fleet with like 2 dozen capital ships pulled out of those squids' asses - where the hell did they get the fleet (see: you have to read the booooooooook to understand the moooooooovie........)

-Rey soloing palpatine is fucking insulting and done in a totally unoriginal way

The most serious affront is that it renders THE ENTIRE GODDAMN SKYWALKER STORY POINTLESS. Its now the Palpatine Saga not the skywalker saga. Anakin's ENTIRE ARC from jedi to Vader to redemption across 6 movies is now just as pointless as the bloody Canto Bight arc in TLJ. Now it becomes a triple fakeout of "anakin is the chosen one" to "You were the chosen one" (ROTS) to killing palpatine and fulfilling the prophecy to "SIKE LOL HE REALLY ISNT DEAD ANAKIN ACTUALLY ISNT THE CHOSEN ONE ITS REY hahaha". The ENTIRE LEGACY of the skywalkers is now failure.

Saw TRS today decent popcorn flick can see how it pisses of lore bois though.

What made it 100 times better then TLJ to me was that they didn't force in that god awful humor, I almost had to turn the movie off at several points because I was cringing so hard at their attempts at humor. But I battled through it because it's Star Wars.

In the end it would seem the original movies will always be the only Star Wars movies that truly matters.

I'd say TFA was the only decent one. It had its cringey moments but it pulled through alright. ROS though, holy shit. They reduced Sidious to a quote machine, while also somehow cheat spawning a whole fleet into existence. The significance of Rey being a Palpatine didn't sit well with me either. The writers didn't know where to go with her, so I feel as if they just slapped her into that position without much forethought.

The Luke scenes in TLJ weren't that bad either, but it is easy to shine out when the rest is flaming garbage. I hope they go to the Old Republic next, but my fears are that they will find a way to screw that up too.
