Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

The rejection of violence thing was done already. It’s not as much of a retread as a really big Death Star, but it’s still a retread. The same idea was already done with more elegance in a better movie. More importantly, I just realized something. The Death Star in *Jedi* is bigger than the one in t...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

The deaths haven't been unceremonious but they have been cheap tricks to buy emotion that neither movie earned.

Luke's final arc was a good concept, badly executed in a poorly paced movie with a bad script.

Considering that she isn't a character but a tall shiny stormtrooper I guess it depends if they feel like having her or not.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

I assume that after we learn that, Captain Phasma kills him and a romantic tension with a light flavoring of BDSM forms between them?

I mean, at some point, JJ has to start recycling his own movies. Then the circle will be complete.

It turns out that Kylo is Rey's father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

I look forward to the scene in which Lando must battle a much larger, newer Lando while the rest of the cast is somehow able to watch from the surface of another planet.

I just want to say that Lando's appearance will be redeemed if half his face is burned off by acid.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

I really think we need a Luke move set a few years before Kylo lost his shit that explores his teaching students, doing peace keeping missions around the galaxy (some through diplomacy & negotiation & some with his saber as a last resort) and show some conflict he witnesses sow the seeds of...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

LAEM is unnecessary unless it's directed by Michael Bay, in which case it needs to be engraved on golden disks and sent out into the universe so that even when the Earth is depopulated in atomic wars over phosphorus and the last livable land near the poles, the pinnacle of our creative existence wil...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

That not though why I hate the idea of Rey showing compassion to Kylo I hate it because its a forced love interest perspective like women in movies can not go with out a love interest its like they can't just be friends with guys and I'm not saying I hate romance I do enjoy it but in Hollywood its ...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

These kinds of roles are doing a disservice to actresses almost as bad as if they only roles for Asians were as Fu Manchu or for black men as Bojangles. "Bitchy stock female boss" is minstrel show level stupidity. It needs to die. That said, part of the problem here is that no matter how t...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

The whole movie suffers from the problem of good idea, poor execution. Luke who has rejected the warrior path? Perfect. In Return of the Jedi , Luke finally defeats Vader by discarding his weapon . He wins without fighting. Having Luke refuse to become a warrior again and ultimately become one with ...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Why do you assume Holdo is female just to service that plot? In what way would it be less of an idiot ball plot if Holdo was a man or an alien walrus puppet? Why would you criticize the character's gender in talking about an unnecessary element of convolusion in the plot? The idea that they must hav...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Not most people, just vocal critics who don't have a substantive criticism of a character or story that doesn't reference gender or race. There are plenty of them and there are plenty of them attacking Rey, for example. A big clue is unironically using the term "Mary Sue". It's come to mea...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Star Wars never had a heart. Lucas never planned anything for a huge cinematic universe and other than having some fun with buck rogersy shit in the first one, had no interest in developing it at all. When he realized its massive commercial potential, he originally planned to hand it off entirely an...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

The animated Batman/Harley Quinn movie is free with Amazon Prime so I watched parts of it yesterday. I say parts because I fast forwarded through a lot.

My God. A new standard has been set for "aggressively terrible".

Re: Last Movie You Watched

I will definitely at least wait for reviews on the next one.

I mean, at least The Hobbit puts me to sleep.
