Disney are reportedly spitefully killing off original Star Wars characters in virtue of George Lucas financial ties to them.
I was excited for the new characters until they ruined them in The Last Jedi.
Translation: it did what I didn't expect and therefore I dislike it.
The whinging regarding The Last Jedi will go down in film history and our generation is just going to sound dumb and greedy.
What was good about the last jedi?
It subverted expectations in a bad way. The Last Jedi and GoT S8 will be used in the future as textbook examples on how to avoid bad writing.
The movie did do what I didn’t expect. I expected it to be a good movie.
The movie was objectively bad. It didn’t follow the previous films, abandoned character arcs, the plot didn’t go anywhere, the conflict is pretty much over as REN is in no way a threat to beats everybody up Rey, they butchered Luke’s character etc.
If it was it’s own thing it could have been a decent C grade movie. But it was a sequel to one of the most beloved franchises in history and it didn’t respect that history.
I didn’t see solo because of TLJ and I no longer have any interest in ep 9 or any other Star Wars content. If that managed to get passed QC then I don’t expect anything else good to come.
The damn tag line was let the past due. What do they do the next movie? MORE nostalgia. Ffs.
People did get what they expected after seeing the force awakens. And they still hated it. Surprise surprise brainlet.
So THAT'S what happened to Carrie Fisher...
Lmao. The last Jedi will go down in history for what it was, a pile of garbage. Our generation is only going to sound dumb when it has people who defend that movie without providing any reasoning behind their defense.
If that was true, why would they make a Solo movie?
What you don't believe this click-bait from a site called "Sausage Roll" that's quoting a guy named "Doomcock"?
I mean they put no effort into that movie. The script was bad it felt thrown together and the actor for Solo was horrible and was absolutely nothing like Han. It's hard to be worse than the prequel trilogy but they managed it.
To make a quick buck. But that didn’t work.
Disney is going to kill Marvel next.
Surrrre they are..
To snub Lucas? What nonsense. This is protocol for new trilogies. Did Lucas make Anakin the main character in the prequels to snub Mark Hammill?
Brainlet strikes again. Also the Skywalker bloodline has been one ofthe main focuses. Saying that there is one "main" character is absolutely ridiculous. Also good job on spelling.
I tend to believe it because the new Theme park is solely centered around the new trilogy, and nothing there comes from the original or the prequel trilogy.
Such a lot of nonsense spread around the internet about the new Star Wars. Sure, TLJ was divisive, but plenty of people liked it. I loved it. Genuinely think it's a great movie in terms of it's construction and vision - but totally get why it's also a left turn in filmaking style that's not going to work for many people. But at the end of the day, the prequels were also divisive, but we've come to love the bits we love and hate the bits we hate, and the originals, the classics, still exist. There's plenty of Star Wars to go around. It's a saga with multiple episodes - we don't have to love each of them to love Star Wars, even with in each movie there's plenty to discuss (what works for some). I wish fans could come together and understand that different tastes can (if not have) to exist within such large franchises that have endured so long. It's the same with Trek. I see a lot of stuff that isn't my style, but I don't see the point in attacking people who are creating these stories. The truth is that they are just as diverse as the people who watch the movies. There is no apex/patient zero fan - even original fans of the OT had different opinions. What with the new TV shows and two new sagas, I suspect we'll all be moving on from this chapter in fandom soon enough - so why not enjoy what there is to enjoy, rather than dwell on what we can't agree on.
No, they are just bad and don't know how to make it good.
