Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: Darth_Lukecash: Mugato: Darth_Lukecash: Are we talking about the movie added or what was in the plot originally? Since Tolkien was trying to copy the epic poems stories, he also copied the elements of them, including dues ex mahina.

I never read the books, I'm talking about the movies. "Hey, we're in a big battle and we're all going to die. Wait, here comes some elves around the hill to save the day! Here's another battle and we're all going to die but wait, there's some ghost army that  Aragorn forgot he had up his ass. The Hobbits are dying in the volcano but wait, here are some eagles that could have done something all along to save them....and so on.

The eleves showing up to save their ass wasn't part of the book. That was added by Jackson.

The Ghost army was in the book, but if I recall correctly, Aragorn talked about it long before that event happened.

The Eagles were part of the book, but because Gandalf had summoned them.  And they were used before in the Hobbit and LOTR.

I believe the standard answer to the oft-asked question: "why didn't Gandalf & Friends just fly the ring to Mount Doom right off the bat?" is because the Nazgul would have eaten them alive. Frodo and Sam had to go in all stealthy-like; they couldn't parade in on the backs of giant eagles.

Yes, I've spent time- precious hours of my life that I can never get back again- researching this difficulty.

Darth_Lukecash: Bathia_Mapes: Osomatic: Bathia_Mapes: While I know he didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of getting the gig, I dearly would have loved seeing Kevin Smith as the director.

Yeah, but then it just would have been a bunch of Stormtroopers sitting around talking.  (I kid because I love.)

I feel he has a lot of love for the original trilogy and would try to undo the damage that Lucas did with 1-3.

Kevin actually loved the prequels.

He firmly believed it was George Lucas toy box, and enjoyed the story Lucas wanted to tell.

So did I. And I was a fan from 1st run of Star Wars- before any chapter added to the crawl.

Mugato: because I care: I get what you're saying, but I didn't feel that way at all. The original Kirk was someone I wanted to be, while the original Spock and McCoy were people I'd like to be friends with. The new characters reminded me of people I'd prefer to avoid. Basically Abrams turned "nerds in space" into "frat boys in space"

Yeah, Kirk was the frat boy, Spock was a psychopath, Scotty was the Jar Jar of the crew, Uhura was a stuck up biatch, Chekov was even more of a cartoon than Scotty, Sulu was ok I guess but they turned him into a Jedi for some reason. The only real likeable character was Bones and that's because he just wasn't into the whole space thing and just wasn't invested in it so we related.


Yeah, Sulu engaging in swordplay was a bit of a stretch.

Yeah, there's no way those dragon things could have circled around Mount Doom and spotted two assholes scrambling around heading toward that volcano. Look, I don't give a shiat, I just find people who find LOTR somehow more intellectual than Star Wars a bit obnoxious.

Darth_Lukecash: Mugato: Shadowtag: but literally every major plot event occurred with the help of some kind of deus ex machina.

No one complained about that with Lord of the Rings.

Are we talking about the movie added or what was in the plot originally?  Since Tolkien was trying to copy the epic poems stories, he also copied the elements of them, including dues ex mahina.

sleeper2995: Even Jar Jar? You actually liked Jar Jar!?


As a character I had no problem with him.  My only complaint was the actor used a voice that was hard to understand, especially with the strange dialect the Gundians had

LDM90: skinink: Damn. I was hoping that Lucas would diect more Star Wars movies, because the series definitely needs more Stepin Fetchit and Jewish caricatures.

Star Wars is dead.

The prequels are exactly like the Tree in Empire Strikes Back

Luke: "What's in there?"
Yoda: "Only what you take with you."

Aliens are not even human, or even the color of any human. Jar Jar and Watto were archetypes, butt they sure in the hell weren't any racial stereo  types. The fact you bring that up means you are bringing your own baggage with you.

Jar Jar was played by Ahmed Best, a black man.  You tell HIM he was a racist. Lucas allowed all the actors to portray the character as they wished-he's not known for being very hands on as a director.

The prequel also had Samuel Jackson as the baddest mother farkin' Jedi ever.

Lucas originally had no plans to include Jar Jar in the subsequent prequels; he had written that one-off character completely out.

It was constant and impassioned letters from Darth_lukecash that led Lucas to rewrite him back in.

dajoro: This is not good news. Star Trek was just okay. Slick, pretty, ridiculous (Spock just happens to be on that ice planet?!?), and bland. Everything he does is just okay (although never saw Alias). I don't get the geek adoration. And the pretentious, smug, aren't-I-so-farking-clever secrecy/hints around his projects is just annoying. Remember the buildup to Cloverfield, and then we got Cloverfield? I was hoping for Brad Bird or Joss Whedon, someone with as much soul and heart as brain.


I don't know if the Force can repel lens flare, but it sure as hell can't repel butthurt.

If that's what you chose to see. I saw an epic tale of innocent sloly corrupted by doing the right thing, a republic willingly turn to tyranny, and a group of porotectors brought down by their own Hurbis.


I was brought down by Hurbis once. He was a big bastard.

This, plus there's nothing I enjoy more than the sad, pathetic wailing of a bunch of middle-aged fanboys and J.J. Abrams has an uncanny knack for causing that.
