Okay, here's my take on the Star Wars thing.

Yes, the original three were basically my childhood. Yes, the newer three sucked balls. Yes, George Lucas is a douche. Yes to all of it. But that's how life goes.

Remember when Christina Aguilera was hot?

img411.imageshack.us

And now she's just fat and disgusting?

scrapetv.com

That's only a problem if you're married to her. If not, just look at the old pictures and ignore the new ones. Same with Lucas and Star Wars. I'm not married to the new ones, I don't have to watch them, so I don't. I watch the old ones and ignore the new ones.

...

Of course, yes, it would have been nice to get 3 more awesome Star Wars films... and not complete shiat... but what can you do?

Fano: Speaker2Animals: HeartBurnKid: Speaker2Animals: Whenever I was in the theater the little kids loved Jar-Jar

Of course they did. He had a silly voice and a bunch of goofy sight gags. That doesn't make the prequels any good.

For them they were. You simply cannot compare them with the first three because you weren't the same age when you saw them, and because the first ones represented a radical departure from previous space flicks, meaning the awe at the visuals would forestall any critical thought about the wooden acting, predictable script, etc.

My fiance, at the age of 36, watched the originals for the first time this year. She thought they were great. Let's see what happens when we get to the prequels.

natmar_76: Are you implying the new trilogy or the 4th Indiana Jones were anything approaching decent movies?


The new trilogy is good. The 4th Indiana Jones was alright... Shia LaBeouf (in general) annoys the crap out of me though, so it was hard to like some of it due to him.

FirstNationalBastard: I think Lucas cared more about pioneering the technology used to make the prequels than about things like story and plot and trying to balance the adult audience that grew up with Star Wars with the younger audience he set out to write for.

Plus, he didn't have anyone around who could dare to tell him "George, this is utter shiat, you can't film this, change it."


I think he cared about both. I also think he tried to balance it out... but it didn't always balance out... sometimes it leaned more for the younger folks, and sometimes towards adults (Anakin's fall in Revenge of the Sith was not kid friendly... pretty much at all). I just think that he had a different vision than what some of the fans wanted (perhaps yourself included). He certainly drove home the fact that Anakin had gone completely over to the dark side when he had him killing younglings.

Also... I can't really say what George did or didn't take into consideration. I've watched a lot of the behind the scenes stuff and it certainly seemed like he cared to me. No, he didn't have Harrison Ford there helping with changes like he did in the others... but I still think they turned out excellent and I enjoyed them. A lot. I still do.

The elitist pukes who constantly trash movies... they do it for sport. I get kind of tired of hearing their bullshiat. Sometimes I think those folks aren't watching to be entertained, but watching to find something to biatch about... it's lame. Sure... there are bits of movies I think are weak or bad... but it gets really old listening to people who couldn't even begin to create a movie even half as good complain all the time.

Nabb1: real_kibo: From the producers of "Pirates of the Caribbean 7", it's "Star Tours: The Movie"!

It would probably be better than "The Phantom Menace."


It couldn't be worse that "The Attack of the Dawson's Creek with Shiattier Writing and Light Sabers."

Sorry, I don't see the reaqson for fanboy outrage.

Everyone hated the prequels, which were Lucas's films 100%. Well, that won't happen anymore.

And on top of that, everyone still loves Pixar and Marvel movies, and GOLLY! Disney owns them! Why, it's almost like they know when to step back and let the creative people do the work and step in to rake in the cash.

But, no, fanboy handwringing and doomsaying is the way to go. Because George would have given us an epic 7th film one day, starring Jar Jar and Bea Arthur.

The sound of one hand clapping: I'm genuinely curious as to what the story would be in movie 7. At the end of movie 6, all jedi apart from Luke are dead (well, I don't know if it's specified but it certainly seems implied), Vader and Sidius are dead, the empire is defeated and relative peace has been restored to the galaxy.

Yes, the empire could resurface as a threat once again since it's easy to assume that many empire forces are still intact. But with the Jedi all but gone that's one of the biggest appeals out of the picture. What separated and continues to separate star wars from other 'epic space battle films' was that addition of these powerful people who fought against all sorts of weapons and creatures with nothing but their trusty lightsabers.

How can they recapture that initial magic?


it's probably about all the lawsuits from greenpeace from destroying the forest moon of endor and making ewoks extinct due to death star fallout

And this time, pay attention to what actually happened in 4, 5 and 6 so that they don't create a litany of ret-cons and contradictions.

Is this where we complain about how George Lucas made three classic movies 30 years ago that were aimed at children, and then destroyed our lives by making three movies 25 years later that were, oddly enough, aimed at children as well? How dare he not pander to the 40 year olds still sleeping on C3PO sheets and wearing their Boba Fett jammies!

I'm not seeing this as a disaster. Disney has made some kickass stuff over the years (and yes, some ass stuff too). This has instantly become their #1 franchise and they are going to take it seriously.
