Casual Dude's Thoughts On Star Wars

Submitted by: rumham 4 months ago in Entertainment


OK, so I'm halfway through The Last Jedi, watching it on Netflix. WTF is wrong with you retards? It's an OK movie. Good acting -- Christ get over yourselves. It's a fucking movie, not your religion. Great Jesus H Panther. Yeah, it's a bit of a bummer, but holy shitcrisps, get over yourselves. And yes, I am just now seeing it so I am a very casual Star Wars fan, but come on people -- it's got an Asian girl in it! OMG! Some people need to prioritize their derpy angst.

people i didn't mean this post to become combative. i am watching starship troopers and am loving it for what it is. critique has become the same thing as I'm smart and you are stupid. kinda of argument.
 some people like Abba. and some people hate Abba. its all ok. settle down or else we all end up like Monkwarrior. brick walls in the face of any kind of dissent

the link above is the best reaction to the movie.

-Snoke's character is no better than Jar Jar Binks
-Purple Hair hair character should have revealed the plan to the rebels/resistance
-Rey doesn't really train as a Jedi but defends herself well against adversaries
-Luke Skywalker's character turns into a grumpy old bitch
-Kylo Ren is not as evils we thought
-Princess Leia flies through space after she is killed by a bomb
-etc etc etc

the list could go on, but just watch the link above...they hit it right on the nose

I'm reminded of when Force Awakens came out. There was a guy complaining about it on IAB, saying he had seen it five times, before picking apart scenes.

I told him I thought it was a decent film - I didn't hate it enough to watch it four more times.

As for Last Jedi, I was disappointed...

I only got about 45mins in before the TV's on the plane crapped out.

Some awesome moments in between a pretty awful plot and disappointing termination of plot points from the previous movie. Mediocre.

rumham Blade Runner 2049 might be the best sequel ever made.  Dare I say better than The Empire Strikes Back...it's damn close...

rumham I saw it and it was terrible.  Forgettable.  Most of the time I'm right when i gauge a movie, though i admit several times i have been wrong.

My problem is that it's basically "Stuck in I-95 Traffic" The Movie...it goes nowhere.

Compare the original A New Hope opening...to "Do you have a refrigerator, is it running?" phone conversation opening of The Last Jedi...it all goes down hill form there.  Take the Lightsaber scene for example.  You have Luke just throwing it over his shoulder like some kind of joke (I actually laughed out loud in the theater).  Instead, what if you have him stare gravely in Rey's face and simply drop it and walk away. There is so much more of a subtle but powerful statement in that. TLJ repeatedly did this, present a situation and take a rather silly and disappointing approach to the resolution. 

The drama that should exist during the space chase scenes immediately breaks when Fynn and Rose jump away and return. Then, later, Chewie jumps in with the Falcon and drops off Rey and jumps out again. Why couldn't the First Order send a ship ahead at anytime prior to do the same? That is just poor storytelling and planning. Basically 2 hours of boring filler.  In the end, my issues are with the poor film making, bad direction and a weak script full of plot holes and unnecessary jokes.  Don't get me started on the "Pod Race on Horses" casino planet waste of time.

I may be a Star Wars fan, but I'm more of a fan of quality film making.  TLJ was pretty piss poor.

Arguing over the plot of Star Wars is so like arguing over the plot of a Gummy Bears episode. The movies are made for small children. If you don't enjoy children's programming then watch something for grown ups.

dm2754 Star wars (the movie) and the sequel (Empire strikes back) were made for adults.  Lucas then had kids and decided that 1) he needed to change the movie tone from this point onward and 2) he needed to go back and change the first movies to be able to be shown to his kids.  THAT is is the point when things died.  By the time Disney took over, it was merely lucas handing the moldy corpse to the mouse.

it was boring. My  roommate feel a sleep. Twice.
 i find it funny that everything is just Bigger. Do you like AT-AT? We have bigger ones. Like Star Destroyers we have bigger ones. Death Star even bigger. How about women we have bigger women also.
