That piece of shait should have gotten life in prison and not been released at all.

I remember when that piece of crap came out the first time. It was the first movie I saw with my dad since I was a little kid. We both walked out of the theater wondering why we just spent 2 hours watching a video game. Why would anyone want to pay $15 to see it again?

What kind of story could they tell after the Empire gets defeated in Return of the Jedi? With Emperor and Vader dead, the remaining Empire-loyal planets struggle to hold the galaxy together while more and more systems join the Rebel Alliance? What does the Rebel Alliance stand for anyway? Hell, what did the Empire stand for besides being a vehicle for Palpatine to gather all the power in the galaxy to himself?

To drag the Star Wars story out for another 3 episodes of a denouement seems like an awful slog through tedious exposition just to make sure the plot is comprehensible to someone. One is reminded of Episode I with its ridiculous Trade Federation subplot which dragged on and didn't seem to move the story anywhere. Now imagine 3 movies of that shiat.

No thanks.

Good, now but all existing copies of the prequels in with Song of the South and the orginal cut of the Black Cauldron to be sealed away forever.

Sure, the 3D versions where canceled, but what about the lens flare re-releases?
 
2013-01-29 06:58:57 AM
I'll watch a 3D re-release of Empire. If there's a 2D option. Because 3D is farking retarded but I'd love to see Empire in the theater again. Even with the special edition bullshiat.

I find you lack of faith disturbing. Don't you know anything about history? Theres tons of ideas to throw around here.

Are you familiar with Frank Herbert's "Dune" books? Not just the first one, but books 2 and 3?

Recap of the first book: After assuming stewardship of the planet Arrakis, the atreides family are destroyed by the harkonnens, and the surviving son Paul Atreides and his mother flee into the desert, where they come to lead the Fremen, the local natives, avenge the destruction of his house, and becomes ruler of Arrakis and the Emperor, hurray, he achieves ultimate power. Avatar took a lot of basic elements from this story line.

But that's just the end of the 1st of four books!

Then the next few books, Herbert topples Paul, he eventually is dethroned, blinded, ends up a hermit, and the power shifts from him as Emperor to others as they compete and conspire to gain control. Generations come and go and struggles for power continue.

In short, there are all SORTS of things they could do in the Star Wars universe.

In the ensuing power vacuum that postcedes the destruction of the Empire, there will be many organizations which had been unable to assert authority because of the jack boot of the Imperial fleet, which will now be able to make their presence felt again. Just because the empire is destroyed doesnt mean the Rebel alliance will suddenly be able to assume its same reach of authority.

There will be remaining pieces of the imperial fleet, some probably significant in size, which would be powerful local powers with well equipped, disciplined forces. The stupid trade federation could make a comeback. Luke could set up a jedi school and start to rebuild the order and look for any further remnants of the Sith. Etc etc. so much to explore.

The whole thing is really going to have to be almost a clean slate. Think about it:-

Emperor: dead. Vadar: dead. Obi-Wan: dead (and Alec Guinness). Yoda: dead. Boba Fett: dead. Luke: old. Han: old. Leia: old. Lando: old. You really don't want Harrison Ford doing action stuff now.

I guess they could still feature Jar-Jar, though.

If it's a clean slate, there's no need for it to remain part of the franchise.

Lucas dropped the ball with Boba Fett, he even admitted it in an interview. He didn't get that Fett was so popular. There could have been a whole sub-plot where Fett jet packs out of the Sarlaac and tracks Solo to Endor for a final showdown. It would at least given Solo something to do instead of being a dork and grabbing Leia's boob after she got shot. I think Disney will bring Fett back.

Let's face it, Disney's going to rape Star Wars like it was Jodie Foster on a pool table.

Senator Palpatine was awesome. The scene where he's chatting to Anakin at the weird water ballet, essentially a rework of the "I am your father" speech is one of the best scenes in the entire franchise.

Unfortunately he's acting against a wooden plank, and that scene is buried in a swamp of arse-wippery.

That is a pretty great scene. But it's unfortunately 1 scene in a very small handful of good scenes stretched between 3 long movies of shiatty plot contrivances, bad acting, failed characterization and a lack of any emotional investment in any of the characters.

The prequels felt like that old SNL figure skating sketch:

"And there's a great move... Ohhhhh!"
"And a triple twist with a... Ohhhh!"
 
2013-01-29 08:12:00 AM
For me, if they had dropped Jar Jar, gotten someone else to play teenage Anakin, and maybe had someone else write the script, the prequels would have been much better.

All in all I actually dug alot of stuff in the prequel: the Clonetroopers in ATOC, battle scene in the arena, fights between Yoda and Palps, Darth Maul, Jango.

As for the next trilogy: I actually am interested. Frankly, I can't wait.

The best way to make a new Star Wars series of movies? Do a new story, connected to the old only by the setting. No Yoda, no Skywalkers, no Han Solo...Find a different group of core characters, and flesh out the universe a bit more. Hell, Disney could even adapt some of the existing expanded universe stories if they wanted to be lazy.

But this is Disney we're talking about, so odds are they're just gonna use as many Skywalkers and Solos as they can get away with. *Sigh*.

The recent Clone Wars cartoon is also excellent. It it wasn't Star Wars, it would get universal cultish acclaim.

And probably have some sort of sinister sexy dressing uip cult attached to it.
 
2013-01-29 08:39:34 AM
Every once in a while I try and convince myself the prequels weren't that bad and I'll start watching Episode I again. I make it about 10 minutes in just after the first action sequence, and then find it completely unwatchable thereafter. Not only is it a bad Star Wars film, but it's just a bad film in general. Had it not carried the Star Wars brand it would have been as unnoticed and instantly forgotten as John Carter.

It's pretty easy to set up Ep. VII.

- It's 30 years later, the empire's gone, but the galaxy is chaotic because of the power vacuum that ensued. So you have tons of rogue star systems who don't trust each other, and a weak New Republic barely holding things together.

- Luke is an old, battle-hardened Jedi Master who's seen it all, and isn't interested in saving the galaxy from itself anymore.

- Leia is an elder statesman, using her last bit of political power to try and stop all the in-fighting of the New Republic.

- Han is either: dead (Assuming Harrison doesn't come back) or retired (If Ford does come back); if it's the latter, he's itching for one, last ride because retirement sucks.

- Chewie, C3P0, R2D2, and Lando are around, doing sh*t somewhere.

- And they all have kids and grandkids who want to live up to the legend, but don't know how.

Boom. There's your f*cking movie. Pay me.

I'm not sure Star Trek has a bigger universe. The SW:EU is absolutely enormous. The bulk of the Star Trek universe are "things 5 different ships have run in to".

Star Wars does go in heavily for the circular history thing though, where the same events are replayed over and over again with different characters, a bit like Battlestar Galactica..

thornhill: Dear Subby,

You do realize that Disney is going to take milking Star Wars for money to a whole level?


I really don't understand this sentiment, though I have seen that it is pretty widespread. Star Wars was always a money making venture. There's nothing pure and wholesome at its core. That didn't stop it from being highly entertaining. It was a product of the old Hollywood system, they just didn't understand the value of the merchandising yet. What stopped the prequels from being entertaining wasn't the desire to make money, it was Lucas' financial ability to make whatever he wanted coupled with a complete lack of artistic vision.

Who cares if Disney is out to milk the thing for money? They know how to take care of their cash cows. Aside from the straight to video stuff and the Disney tween channel stuff, they make products that are meant to endure the test of time and keep producing revenue for decades. They are going to do their very best to pull the Star Wars brand out of the toilet and revitalize it BECAUSE that is the most profitable thing to do with it long term.

If Viacom or Newscorp had gotten a hold of the property I would understand the hemming and hawing, but Disney is going to make decisions, like this one, based on long term profitability.

EU. Star Trek has shiatty EU as well. Star Wars is basically based on a small handfull of characters and maybe a dozen planets. Trek spans four quadrants and dozens of characters and various empires.

I'm just saying that it's essentially hypocritical to criticize Lucas for milking Star Wars for every dollars, and then praise Disney for holding off on 3D re-releases when 1) They're going to milk Star Wars for every dollar (they want to quickly recoup their $4 billion); and 2) Given that they've been rereleasing all of their animated films in 3D, it's only a matter of time until they release Episodes II to VI in 3D.

Yeah, no chance at all that Disney won't eventually do shameless 3D releases of all the Star Wars movies.

Well put.

The other thing Disney won't do is get carried away with political undertones and stuff like that, which plagued the original trilogy. Disney knows their target audience, and while there's whole legions of middle-aged fanboys who will analyze every single frame of the new films a thousand ways to Sunday, the films will still be geared at the demographic who will be spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on merchandise long after that initial $10 movie ticket purchase.

The unfortunate part of it is, when it comes to the Disney Princesses, for example, it's been shown that Disney will put the brand on any piece of mass produced crap coming out of China. How can you tell if a toy is a fragile, poorly-made piece of garbage? It has the word "Disney" on it.

Summoner101: I don't think some of you realize that Lucas not directing gives the next trilogy at least some chance especially since they have a fairly detailed universe to draw inspiration from


I think it's going to be awesome because of this

Trade Secret: John Carter was a fine movie. WAY better than Ep 1 and 2. I wish it would have been marketed/named better. More people should see it.

/i'll see the new Star Wars flicks.
//first weekend


I had never ever heard of John Carter til I ended up seeing it online. I thought it was a pretty fun and interesting movie. A few problems, but overall it was worth watching.
