TLJ is the only good Star Wars movie.

I thought that the new trilogy was good.

If you want to reset the sequel series (And I don't blame you if you want to), you need to reset ALL of the sequel series, not just the one or two contentious ones. Also, while we're on the subject, would it be too much to ask to have an overarching story line planned out BEFORE filming this time?

Pretty much.

VII was "Hey, here's IV with more CGI - can't say it's like the Prequels!"
VIII was "Here's some new characters, plot ideas, and an indication of where we'd like the universe to go!"
IX was "OMG we're so sorry for VIII, here's episode VI again with more CGI and numerous references to how terrible VIII was."

There were parts of TLJ I liked, and parts I didn't care for.

RoP was a string of nostalgia moments strung together without much cohesion, and it made me appreciate what I liked about TLJ even more.

But taken as a whole, the new trilogy has resulted in the death of my love of Star Wars.

I was one of those kittens who got the Orig Trig on VHS when I was 9 or 10 and absolutely fell in love with them.

The prequel trilogy was bad in many ways, but didn't really have an impact on my feelings for the franchise as a whole.

But as of the completion of the Sequel trilogy, I find I no longer care about the franchise at all, and I find myself with no interest in even returning to the Orig Trig.

So I really don't care what becomes of the franchise at this point. I doubt I'll be watching.

VII annoyed me
VIII offended me on an intellectual level...and as a fan it broke many aspects of in universe canon
IX... hold my beer...

TLJ was so bad I skipped seeing RoS in theater on opening day...the only time I skipped opening day for a StarWars film (yes I even saw the CLoneWars cartoon movie opening day)
 
2020-06-30 12:33:50 PM  
They aren't going to erase the prequel series from canon, that is stupid fanboy nonsense. Some people did like that trilogy and you can build off it later for money and nostalgia. What they will probably do is step back from the entire Skywalker/Palpatine stuff and focus more on other aspects of the Star Wars universe like other time period in Star Wars lore and other Jedi and other stories.

"The rumor comes from the "future ruler of Earth," the Doomcock Overlord DVD YouTube channel, who recently offered that a Star Wars "civil war" is happening at Lucasfilm between Kathleen Kennedy and Jon Favreau."

In other words...a fan boy rage circle jerk

Seriously...let it go...the films had major problems...but let it go.

thats one of the things that breaks the in universe rules...
in SW...technology has basically hit a plateau a couple thousand years previous the the Skywalker saga.
the ONLY way most of this tech makes sense is if Energy is widely and cheaply available.
now in support of a stupid plotline for a moronic movie, we have to introduce "hyperspace fuel" so we can have a sense of faux drama... then they had to cement this by making this new "coaxium" macguffin the central plot of "Solo"...and they didn't just double down on stupid, they triple downed on it... they have decided that hyper space fuel is extremely rare, and dangerous, and only comes from the SAME planet that the popular and highly illegal drug "spice" comes from... only one planet? as the source of ALL hyperspace fuel...for a civilization that spans thousands of planets, composed of trillions of beings, over several millennia?
yeah....THAT makes zero sense.

we are supposed to be able to suspend disbelief in order to buy the setting, the space magic etc...for that to work it has to have some in universe rules to follow...now they will break those internal boundries any time they feel like just so they can have a non-sensical action scene or plot point (Ep IX introduced "hyperspace skipping"...What the Proverbial fark??)

None of that would happen with Kathleen Kennedy still in charge. If I see her stepping down from being executive producer, then I'll start to believe.

"So what Doomcock is explaining is that a Star Wars Multiverse will be created which will isolate the Disney Star Wars Trilogy as being a part of a separate universe that is not a part of the George Lucas original Star Wars films."

Lucas/Disney is basically giving up and saying everything is canon and you better believe they will shovel out garbage for all tastes hoping to separate you from your money.

Disney doesn't care about Star Wars it cares about money and it has realized it F'd up on the new trilogy and is trying to find a way to maximize their investment. You love/hate Rey, Disney's got a universe for you, you like/hate the original-expanded trilogy stories, Disney's got a universe for you, you think the new trilogy was the best, well you need help but Disney's got a universe for you too.

Fuel was a thing that existed in the Star Wars EU for... Well, certainly for a while. Hyperfuel was a thing in Episode 1 (Well, the Hyperdrive was leaking something, at least) as well. And also, I was under the impression that Coaxium could be found in several locations, but to find a large source of unrefined coaxium that they could steal they had to go to Kessel (Though, they should have just left it as Spice they were stealing. But Spice doesn't explode and... Ugh, that movie).

Star Trek Into Darkness was fantastic.

VII was just a soft ANH reboot. I liked the runaway stormtrooper angle. I liked the protagonist being a young woman. I thought being found on a desert planet was too on the nose though. Watching the UltraSuperDeath Star beams sail across the galaxy while visible from some random planet's surface actually hurt. It is like the creators of Star Wars thought that the speed of light is infinite and the galaxy is the size of a solar system. It ripped me out of the movie. I expected Han to get killed by his son. I liked Finn trying to fight Kylo with a light saber and I liked Rey getting the saber and standing up to Kylo. All the rest is ho-hum. Maybe a little too Mary Sue for Rey. I believed her having legit fighting skills, but piloting the Falcon with no prior experience - nah. Remember, Luke was already trained as a pilot before Yavin and even then he was sloppy and needed others to sacrifice for him to win.

VIII was just.... painful. It went off the rails from the very start with the phone gag. Then Leia and Haldo take turns kicking Poe in the balls for a very successful victory during the withdrawal and then keeping him in the dark and watching him flail during the slow-speed chase and mutiny. Pointless trip to CasinoWorld. Lightspeed ramming technique that made all previous space battles pointless. Turned Luke into a psycho. The man who surrendered to the emperor to save his father thought it was a good idea to kill his nephew? And then at the end Yoda's ghost gaslights him into killing himself. I wanted more female characters in Star Wars, but their role shouldn't be to thwart the male heroes (Leia, Holdo, and Rose are there to thwart Finn and Poe. Why not have them act against, you know, the bad guys?). Rose crashing into Finn and then sexually assaulting him was the single most dumb thing in Star Wars - even worse than Jar Jar and Yipee!. Rey's arc wasn't too bad. I liked what happened on HER side with Luke. If TLJ really wanted to be edgy, Rey should have turned to the dark side and Kylo would have fled to the rebels.

IX was just a bunch of stuff that happened. Nothing made sense because it started out by bring Palpatine back in. Just throw stuff on the screen and hope it all works out.

The movies are each fine.  The trilogy as a whole is a goddamn mess.

TLJ sets up things that don't pay off and RoS pays off things that were never set up.

Solo ended up being incredibly mediocre because the studio couldn't decide what kind of film they wanted and farked with production halfway through.

The lack of planning ahead for a franchise this big is inexcusable.

Space westerns with space dogfights, and laser sword fights between space monks and space ninjas.

/Didn't hate any of them. Even had fun at Phantom since I was farking plowed and seeing it with my closest 1L friends who just beat the everloving shiat out of the space minstrel and space Chinese-jew sterotypes.

I liked TFA the best, but the Star Killer base blasting a planet on the other side of the galaxy and everyone seeing it from a different part was one of the dumbest scenes in the entire series. It went downhill from there.

Rey and Finn were good characters. Poe was just obnoxious from VII on

Mash up Time Runs Out and Secret Wars 2015 with the X-Men taking the place of the Ultimate universe and you would have a great way to simultaneously being over the X-Men while retconning the MCU so that they were always a part of the MCU history when the universe is restored at the end of the story.

GardenWeasel: Yeah, this is the incel that's been whining about female lead movies. It's not happening, cry moar.


I refuse to like a movie just bc it made some idiot arseholes on 4chan act like idiot arseholes on 4chan.

It doesn't change the fact that the whole Resistance plot line was a steaming pile.

Also, all the sticking it to the incels crowd overlooks that the movie was pretty insulting to Leia's character.

Leia sends out a heart felt plea to the galaxy to stand up to tyranny and gets crickets.

Landon sends out a "C'mon. I'll throw in a Colt 45" and gets Fleet Mother of All Deus ex Machina.

Bootleg: Stratohead: Brokenseas: Moopy Mac: The last two movies were not good. They were bad.


I really liked the first 2/3s of The Force Awakens.  Good action, good introduction to new characters, sure the tentacle monster fight scene was goofy but whatever.

Once Rey got captured and the new Death Star Firing Across The Universe happened the movie went to shiat.  And the sequels never recovered.


pkjun: TLJ is the only good Star Wars movie.

"Sir, the Rebels are slowly getting away!"

"Slowly follow them.  We will destroy them when they run out of gas!"

thats one of the things that breaks the in universe rules...
in SW...technology has basically hit a plateau a couple thousand years previous the the Skywalker saga.
the ONLY way most of this tech makes sense is if Energy is widely and cheaply available.
now in support of a stupid plotline for a moronic movie, we have to introduce "hyperspace fuel" so we can have a sense of faux drama... then they had to cement this by making this new "coaxium" macguffin the central plot of "Solo"...and they didn't just double down on stupid, they triple downed on it... they have decided that hyper space fuel is extremely rare, and dangerous, and only comes from the SAME planet that the popular and highly illegal drug "spice" comes from... only one planet? as the source of ALL hyperspace fuel...for a civilization that spans thousands of planets, composed of trillions of beings, over several millennia?
yeah....THAT makes zero sense.

we are supposed to be able to suspend disbelief in order to buy the setting, the space magic etc...for that to work it has to have some in universe rules to follow...now they will break those internal boundries any time they feel like just so they can have a non-sensical action scene or plot point (Ep IX introduced "hyperspace skipping"...What the Proverbial fark??)

Fuel was a thing that existed in the Star Wars EU for... Well, certainly for a while. Hyperfuel was a thing in Episode 1 (Well, the Hyperdrive was leaking something, at least) as well. And also, I was under the impression that Coaxium could be found in several locations, but to find a large source of unrefined coaxium that they could steal they had to go to Kessel (Though, they should have just left it as Spice they were stealing. But Spice doesn't explode and... Ugh, that movie).


Yes, but as they are evacuating the base boone thought " You know what might be smart while loading up people and supplies, refueling the ships".

More than half the people sitting around the table planning the attack on Starkiller Base were veterans from the Rebel Alliance. These people should be experts at staying on the run from brutal dictators, yet every single one managed to forget one of the most important details?
