So, he will think he is really helping but really be more of a nuisance in that area. Then he will cheer as if his efforts meant something, while those who actually made it succeed look at him like an idiot?

Jar Jar was the sucker that put to Emergency Powers motion to the Senate. So, in effect he did help out the Rebellion to flourish by CREATING THE FARKING EMPIRE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Barely, instead you get to see some whiny rage wuss fling planets around w/ his pinky fingers. I admit, some of the combo gameplay was pretty good, though.

You dont get to be apart of it.. Just get to see it being formed. It is nice to know some back story in the 18 years in the middle. And yes, Starkiller was just a whiny kid in TFU2. Almost as bad as Anakin whining about Padme.

Technically, the Rebellion was formed from a merging of Mon Mothma's 'Chandrilla house' Senators & supporters, and the remnants of the Separatist movement. So yes, part of the Rebellion was already active in Episodes 2 & 3

I check in with "Half in the Bag" starring Dumpy and Neckbeard every so often because the reviews are genuinely funny but Jesus, with their George Lucas obsession. And it's not like their skits are funny or anything. They just have some sort of hatred of George Lucas but can't stop talking about/portraying him.

It's been 7 years since the last prequel, move the fark on.

Only if you view the Extended Universe as canon, which is a little fuzzy. In the case of Star Wars I tend to view the extended universe as a separate continuity from the movies. Sort of like how there are several independent versions of the Marvel Universe, such as the Ultimates or the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But then we just have the question of how did the rebellion form in the first place? The movies don't actually firmly establish this, although a series of deleted scenes from Episode 3 point to it being spawned from a group of officially loyalist senators who were disturbed by the growing power of then-Chancellor Palpatine. Basically it was a rebellion against the very idea of an Empire.

Yeah like I said, I like their reviews and they pretty much sound like my friends and I when we bullshiat about movies, only they're making money off of it. But it's like Lucas raped their mothers or something.

TFA: So who will end up with the coveted gig? While no name has been officially announced, the "Star Wars" rumor-mill has certainly been buzzing, with helmers including Colin Trevorrow, Matthew Vaughn, Brad Bird, and Jon Favreau named as potential contenders (though some, including Bird, have already pooh-poohed the talk surrounding their possible involvement).

They can pooh-pooh the rumor mill all that want, as long as they're not poo-pooing all over the franchise itself.

he's been grousing about retiring and making odd little vanity movies in his backyard for decades. he's done a lot of crossover work with disney in the past few years and i imagine they've treated him like a prince. they've done a nice job with marvel and the muppets, which indicates they wouldn't crap all over the franchise (lucas may not be competant enough to do it himself, but i think he still cares about star wars.) And of course there is the boatload of money, which lucas can then pump into his charity works that he likes to fuss with. and yes, people are constantly harping on the guy. now that he's sold star wars, he probably can relax for the first time in decades. i imagine some combo of those various factors lead to the sale

You just had to go and use the C-word, didn't you? Are you TRYING to invoke a Star Wars Canon War? What will you toss out next, that The Clone Wars is higher canon than anything Karen Traviss ever wrote?

Actually, do that, because I love seeing fans of that hack go all rage face.

[not sure if serious.jpg]


The movie "The Muppets" was absolutely fabulous. I saw it last year in the theater and loved it. I've also just watched it a couple of times and laughed harder the 2nd time through than the first. It's one of those good comedies that gets funnier every time because you see all the extra things they're doing as a parody of the genre... which, of course, the Muppets were in the first place.

A thing which parodies itself isn't funny, and it isn't "doing a nice job" with the material.

It's sad. It was a painfully bad movie that used nostalgia to blind people my age and older to that fact and ironic-faux nostalgia to blind the hipster set.

I'm so glad I'm not one of those people who can't enjoy anything.

It wasn't parodying itself, it was parodying the genre of "the musical". The Muppets were a parody of "the variety show".

Whatever, you didn't like it because you don't like musicals, or variety shows... that's fine. But don't pretend you ever liked the Muppets, or would like them if they were on TV today. You wouldn't because parodying a "variety show" in this day and age makes NO sense. I suppose they should have parodied reality TV? UGH.... *shudder*

I kinda liked the prequels (except part 1) but they could have been so much better. I'm looking forward to these movies, but in the case of Lucas, it'll be odd in a sense that he wont have final say anymore or even much input. Star Wars after all was his and it grew with him (for better or worse) as an artist, so it does lose something in that's it no longer ultimately his.

Bah. I just hope they're entertaining. And now at least the actors should actually be encouraged to act.

I don't see how you think you're being trolled when I'm merely expressing an opinion.

Oh, but that's right. Unpopular opinions are "trolls" because that's how great the internet is at promoting discussion and debate. And by "great", I mean "terrible".

It amazes me how it honestly blows most people's minds that I didn't like the recent Muppet movie or that I can say with a straight face that I did not enjoy any of the Pixar films I've had to sit through. It's such a wildly unpopular opinion that it's just automatically a troll. OK, then. Whatever.

Why wouldn't the creator the cannon be consulted for the new movies? If Tolkien were alive, Peter Jackson would be pretty stupid not to bend his ear, regardless if it really influenced how he wanted to convey his vision for MiddleEarth.

Disney paid a billions of dollars for the Star Wars franchise or a reason ... nerds will pay big money to watch them. (The nerds who complained the loudest about the new movies probably put more money into Lucas' pockets than anyone). With such an asset, Disney is going to make about a never ending stream of Star Wars movies from here on out with different caretakers implementing their vision. Some will be duds. Some will be great. The bad ones will no more be able to kill the franchise anymore than Schumacher was able to kill Batman or Timothy Dalton was able to kill James Bond. In fact, the "Star Wars is Cool Again!!" nerd narratives are as predictable as overdue. You'll pay your money. Disney will take your money. You'll get over it.

mat catastrophe: I don't see how you think you're being trolled when I'm merely expressing an opinion.


You aren't "merely" expressing an opinion. You're expressing a very minority opinion and then acting like we're the crazy ones. Furthermore, your inability to reply to my actual question asking what you did like makes it even more clear that you are trolling.

You don't have to express an opinion you don't believe to troll. Trolling is merely making outlandish statements in an effort to draw people into an argument that will never end.

See, I LOVE to express the opinion that Speed Racer is one of the most fabulous movies I have ever seen. I love EVERYTHING about it. I know people don't agree with me, but I bring it up for the express purpose of being able to share and discuss my dissenting opinion. If I do that in a way that I don't acknowledge the other person's opinion is actually valid like you did, then that would make me a troll.

/congrats, you did it again...

You deserve to win the internets for your arguments against this troll. A applaud you for everything you said.

And Speed Racer was awesome! Saw it day 1 in theaters and loved it. Bought it on DVD day 1 too.

Yay! Another Speed Racer fan!! I actually saw it on Mother's Day (day 3) and drug my kids and hubby to it, too. I won't tell you how many times I actually saw it in the theater, because it makes me sound like an addict or something (which I was). Also bought it on DVD and on Blu Ray, but I definitely enjoy it more on the big screen. But that probably has to do more with the lack of distractions in a theater than the format.

You expressed disdain for "The Muppets" and Pixar movies, then acted like people who disagreed were the minority dissenting opinion. Let's see about that:

The Muppets: 96%
The Incredibles: 97%
Finding Nemo: 99%
Monsters Inc.: 95%
Toy Story: 100%
(Many other Pixar films and shorts redacted, all score highly except "Cars 2".)

Because someone said that Disney did good work with the Muppets property. I don't think they did. I think it was a film that hid a ton of flaws behind a lot of feel-good nostalgia. It was an inferior retelling of The Muppet Movie, and while that film relied on some of the same tongue-in-cheek/self-aware humor about its existence, there was really no reason other than sheer laziness to stretch that concept as far as they did in the new one. It made the entire thing feel forced and unfortunate.

I didn't comment on how they've handled the Marvel properties they own because by-and-large I don't care one way or the other about those. I also haven't bothered to see most of them. The ones I've seen are OK, I guess. They're decent action films and some of them actually seem to want to be taken seriously as films, and that's fine.

The fact that the nerdrage over Lucas selling his entire business over to Disney was so huge makes me wonder how much any of you actually pay attention to the world. I mean, you hate Lucas, then you hate Disney, but you love Pixar, but you hate something else....

It's all very inconsistent. And the amount of groupthink surrounding the whole thing is positively bizarre. In fact, the groupthink forces everyone to marginalize the dissident opinion as a "troll". Once you've marginalized the dissident opinion, it's easy to move on to nonsense like "Oh, here's some hipster who only likes 'art'" or "Stop liking what I don't like" comments.

It's intellectually lazy.

And it happens every single time. I've not had one intelligent discussion on this site over a marginal/dissident opinion. Not one.

Ah...well at least that's a reasoned argument and makes points that can be reasonably discussed. But it's not what you said. Instead (and talk about tired old memes), you posted the "Not sure if serious" Joker picture in response to that person. That would imply that most people thought "The Muppets" sucked, and you weren't sure if the poster was being serious about liking such a universally disliked movie.

But that's not the case at all. Critical reviews were mostly positive, 96% on RT. A poster remarking what a good job Disney did with the Muppets was the mainstream opinion. Your posting of that tired old meme made no sense in this context - why would you not be sure if the poster was serious about something that most people would agree with? So why didn't you post something like the above paragraph instead of a lame attempt at pretentious snark? It would have saved you a lot of grief on this forum where you hate people so much.

The fact that the nerdrage over Lucas selling his entire business over to Disney was so huge makes me wonder how much any of you actually pay attention to the world. I mean, you hate Lucas, then you hate Disney, but you love Pixar, but you hate something else....

I don't think you know what you're talking about. Most people view the Disney acquisition as positive. It means Lucas won't be making (ruining) any more Star Wars movies. Disney makes (mostly) excellent movies, and has a good chance of making excellent Star Wars movies. And again, the mainstream opinion of Pixar is hugely positive - you're the one implied (again, didn't outright say, because you're pretentious and it's beneath you to simply state your opinion) that Pixar movies are "substandard".

It's all very inconsistent.

Yes, it really is. On your part.

And it happens every single time. I've not had one intelligent discussion on this site over a marginal/dissident opinion. Not one.

And it happens, to you, every single time. But it's everyone else's fault. The common denominator - you - could no way be at fault for something that "happens every single time". (eyeroll)

If you'd simply posted your first paragraph to begin with, I think you would have stood a better chance of having that intelligent discussion. Instead, you chose to be a pretentious know-it-all douchebag by implying - not outright saying - a minority opinion and pretending (that's the heart of being pretentious, after all) that we were all the crazy ones for not getting where you were coming from. Articulating yourself in the first place is obviously beneath you, but we're the dicks for not grasping your superior intellect.

I suspect this is not the only place you have such problems, not if this is how you socialize in the real world. Am I wrong about that?
