In 5 years, people will treat the sequel the same way they do the prequel. "LALALALALALALA WHAT DO YOU MEAN EPISODE 8 THERE WERE ONLY 3 STAR WARS MOVIES AND THEY WERE INEXPLICABLY LABELED 4-6."

Full of spectacle, devoid of heart. 7 has not aged well in my head. It was decent when I first saw it, but it's just more and more lame as time goes on.

JJ probably won't fuck it up like Rian, but that's not saying much - and since his last venture was a rehash, it will likely scrape by instead of being the complete dumpster fire.

It's feasible for the FO to have a metric fuckton of star destroyers, if they've concentrated all of the far-flung empire installations into a concentrated force.

But there's a difference between a resource-strapped org retrofitting existed ships, and building cutting-edge dreadnoughts and planet-sized system busters.

But this is the series that brought you the B/SF-17 heavy bomber, a FTL-era ship copying WWII antics that gets triple KO'd by half of a downed TIE. Idiocy.

I think the best books in star wars are about limited ships and how the remnants of the empire and alliance are in a quasi arms race between each other. Such as when they discover that abandoned fleet of cruisers. I think that's also the book about the alien race that is immune to the force and the alliance has to team up with the empire to beat them. Thatd have made a good movie.

I actually think 7 improved for me with time.

Unlike the other films to date it has a very strong set of moral themes and message promoting collectivism over individualism and the ineffectiveness/failures of individualism to deliver the just society the rebels (it implies) were fighting for; and the need for deeper systemic change rather than who runs the Galactic empire/Republic.

It's actually an amazingly left wing film in that it at least appears to be adopting a flat out socialist - as in beyond liberal social democratic - critiques of contemporary Western political and economics at a structural level. These are rather underdeveloped - it's a star wars film - but I can't believe they are coincidental. Whether it's a wise idea to try and explore that theme in a star wars film is a different matter.

The plot ends up being - comparatively for a star wars film - a bit of a mess but largely because instead of a linear hero's journey we get something more complex to articulate these themes.

E.g. the jaunt to space Monaco is unnecessary for the plot but utterly essential in demonstrating how the Republic and empire made little difference for many, and how systemic individual incentives create evil, and the need for individuals to commit to a cause greater than themselves.

It's a beautiful mess of a film - I still can't really work out if I actually enjoy it (also I don't agree with what I think it's the underlying political message) - but one thing I can definitely say, it ain't derivative.

I kind of love it's utterly mad ambition and complete willingness to subvert the rest of the series.

Luke is a cynical old fuck who strokes out with a Force projection and tried to kill a child, Leia is unconscious space superwoman who rises to her responsibilities

Rey constantly exceeds expectations, excels at anything she does, Kylo is angry, disturbed white male who uses negative emotions to make up for his deficiencies

Poe is reckless, hot-headed, and needed a bad battle outcome to knock him down a peg, he was too much of good guy in Ep7 - so position him against Holdo, the calm and collected independent wymyn who you are expected to obey without question, even when the apparent plan is delayed suicide

Asgard:

Yes.

Also this Mary Sue bullshit. Luke learned to be a Jedi in the time it took for Han to fly from Hoth to Bespin. Star wars has never been realistic.

A literalist approach to what we see on the screen: Luke isn't that great. He only defeated vader when he drew on the dark side. The only way he was able to defeat the empire was because he just happened to be Darth Vader's son. His decision not to fight after realising he could only win by using the dark side led to Vader killing the emperor.

Luke isn't a powerful Jedi badass. Going by the films, he's impulsive, not well trained, and merely wise enough to show restraint when he realises he's giving into the dark side.

Luke in 8 isn't *cynical*, the reverse: he's an idealist. Luke has always been a romantic idealist, from when we first meet him as a farm boy dreaming of adventure.

He's internalised that lesson. They were very explicit: the Jedi failed, they'd become an institutional tool of violence which wasn't what they were supposed to be. When he tried to recreate a Jedi order as a mirror of the council to the new Republic, he slips a bit to the dark side and it all comes down.

Leia otoh has always been the pragmatic political organisers.

Holdo Vs Poe is again the message of collectivism vs self serving individualism. Poe goes gallivanting off on "heroic" missions and fucks up twice.

Holdo Vs Flyn's attempted sacrifice is again about self gratification Vs the need to live for the cause.

These are heavy handed and not at all subtle but I think you are misreading them because you insist on viewing it through a lens of "social justice warrior" that is something of a straw man. I.e. what you characterise them to believe, not what those people actually believe.

"Luke learned to be a Jedi"

He learned some very rudimentary skills: jumping, pulling. They, alone with his lightsaber, enabled him to pull ahead of average mercs and soldiers ala Sarlacc pit fight.

The pre-teen kid escaping Coruscant would fuck him up.

"He only defeated vader when he drew on the dark side."

Yes, an old man on a respirator. Kylo is in his physical prime, with Skywalker blood, years of training, and the raw power to stop a blaster bolt of energized plasma midair.

And he got fucked by a Mary Sue who beat up desert thugs with a staff.

"Luke in 8 isn't *cynical*, the reverse: he's an idealist."

In flashbacks. And then he got his first taste of failure and became a hermit.

"they'd become an institutional tool of violence which wasn't what they were supposed to be."

Sure. Without the Sith to pit themselves against, they languished in the hells of politics and bureaucracy. The Rule of Two ensured that the Sith weren't an ever-present enemy with which to do glorious battle; the Sith battled each other to improve and worked behind the scenes while the Jedi rested on their laurels.

Them going away is fine - IF the Sith are gone. Luke hasn't ensured this, so he has fled his responsibility.

"Poe goes gallivanting off on "heroic" missions and fucks up twice."

Right. Because the most trusted officer and pilot of Leia's in 7 needed to be a reckless flyboy in 8. And because Rian designed literally retarded heavy bombers to further the plot.

Yeah, this idea that Luke was some supreme badass right off the bat is ridiculous.

1. He was introduced to light saber combat in ep 4 and taught the basics of harnessing the force.

2. He showed no real proficiency in force use in the entire first movie.

3. it was like 5 years between ep 4 and ep 5.

4. He again showed little force abilities in ep 5 during Hoth. He just happened to have a Jedi weapon. Han was the badass on Hoth.

5. The time it took the Falcon to get to Cloud City from Hoth was not instantaneously. Luke wasn't just on Degobah for a few days. It was weeks, maybe months.

6. In all of Luke's condensed training, all he could do was barely move an X-wing, not stack rocks, and pick up some good cardio and brazen confidence. He was highly outmatched by Vader in ep 5.

6. it was about 5 years between ep 5 and ep 6.

7. Luke finally showed the agility and basic force push/pull abilities in ep 6, as well as force suggestion. Yet, he has now had 6-10 years of living with the force, 3-5 of them after Yoda's training.

8. Even in the showdown with Vader, Luke could only match a hobbled old man in combat. There was no real suggestion that Luke's other force abilities were a match for Vader. And this is a ~50 year old Vader who has been a burn victim for like 30 of those years.



To suggest that Luke was some ridiculous wunderkind that just popped up out of nowhere is without merit. He most definitely earned his stripes, only really showing Jedi prowess in ep 6, wherein he has had several years to further progress from Yoda's teachings. Whereas Rey has been the biggest badass around since she appeared on screen. Without training. Without time to learn.

Forwyn:

It sounds like we agree then, that the latest sequels haven't "ruined" luke in the sense he's never that badass, and what we see of him shows considerably increased proficiency in the force.

So the question is, "why is he a space hermit not fighting in the resistance".5

His "first taste of failure" is succumbing to the dark side and nearly killing his nephew, driving his nephew to the dark side, who then kills all the people in his charge (which Luke will feel very responsible for given it was his job to protect them and his slip to the dark side triggered the event, and his failure to adequately prepare Ben etc.), and also ruining the marriage of his sister and best friend who have now lost their child and break up.

I mean, if we are going to really start overanalyzing the character motivation for realism, acknowledging that your greatest moment was foreswearing violence, that attempting to build a model of Jedi (political peace keepers space ninja) that had utterly failed anyway had not only failed but ruined everything you love and tempted you to the dark side, running off to be a hermit and foreswearing violence isn't an entirely unreasonable response. Suicide another one.

You know what would be utterly unrealistic or in character? Dusting himself down and going "whelp, that batch didn't go so well, going to train me another batch of youths and hope I figure out how not to get that lot killed. Can't be a proper Jedi master without padawans.".
A period of deep introspection would be expected. Especially as there's no pressing need at this point for an army of Jedi.

As for Rey "defeating" Kylo, it's like you haven't been paying attention: Kylo is established as powerful, conflicted, lacking self discipline and control, and we know snoke has been meddling. And want the fight just after he killed his dad, and been iirc wounded?

She didn't handily defeat Kylo either. She kind of got lucky and Kylo fucked up.

And we know very little about Rey - for all we know she might be the result of Palpetine trying to repeat the experiment that led to Anakin.

What we do know though is that unlike Luke she's clearly been used to having to fight a fair bit on jakuu, so she's starting one up from Luke in that respect.

And by the time we see her really fighting she's been on Jedi Island for probably a lot longer than Luke was on Dagobah. There's little in the the Empire strikes back to suggest that the journey to Bespin took months, though it may have been retconned over the thirty odd years since the film came out.

Asgard:
Yeah, she's a bit of a mechanic, established from the get go. Can she fly better than Han - that's not established. And Luke took to the guns with no experience too.

I find all this "Rey is too good" a little bizarre. As bizarre as "they ruined Luke".

But seriously, star wars isn't character driven and never has been. All the characters are archetypes and tropes, the plot arcs derivative and explicitly along universal myths.

Attempts to shift that by Lucas in the prequels grated horribly - the plots were essentially the back story for the evil vizier took over, his attempt at a Greek tragedy - but just too trite when watered down for universal appeal. Rebel one was the dirty dozen and every other classic war movie. Solo was a cowboy heist movie.

8 stands alone as trying to do something different - it's a delightfully bonkers, hot mess of a film trying to break out beyond the constraints. If they'd done anything different it would just end up being oddly unsatisfactory like the last Jedi.

Habebe:

The only one that's really thrilled me was rogue one. Solo was a bit meh for me. Partly because Han just felt a little bit too competent.

I kinda get the problem though.

Star wars is a lovely setting but you can't really recreate the magic of the first trilogy because the stories were purposefully archetypal. So you have a tightrope between feeling like a rehash from a plot point (as force awakens did, even though it was the first movie to actually *feel* like the classic trilogy) or feeling like you are deviating from the formula.

Rogue 1 worked so well because the ww2 aesthetic of the classic (diesel punk, Nazis and naval warfare) lends itself perfectly to that; and is a bridge to a slightly more complex story where the good guys die the end.

They should do more of that kind of thing: genre movies. I think solo would have worked better as a straight out Western without the complication of having Han in it.

I'd watch 7 and 8 a hundred times before watching 1-3 again. That said, a lot of lazy/bad choices were made for 7 and 8. But at least they're watchable shit, which is something compared to the unwatchable trainwrecks that are 1-3.

For me, 1-3 can be made slightly watchable if you see them as that combined and re-edited version that Topher Grace did (the entire prequel trilogy as one movie). The new ones, on the other hand.. I have had absolutely zero impulse to rewatch ever. After seeing Episode 8, I was actually annoyed that I’d paid money and wasted my time on such a garbage heap.

..
[Chuck]: “Seb's just going through the motions.”

Yeah. Seems to be a devil’s advocate troll in motion. UP pretty universally hates Star Wars, so Seb figured, “What if I go full retard and pretend that they’re awesome movies?” It required taking some ridiculous positions (like basically saying that he liked 8 because it was campy — i.e., it was such shit that it entertained him), and of course he stated a demonstrable opposite in the troll as his strongest sentiment: “one thing I can definitely say, [Episode 8] ain't derivative.”

Like, obviously Episode 8 had *tons* of derivative elements, from its main plot structure to its imagery to its character creation. It’s nothing if not derivative. But by saying something so retarded (“it ain’t derivative”), Seb can potentially bait people into systematically showing him how wrong he is, and just like that, Seb is entertained for the day. Luckily no one has bothered. The bait was just too obvious.

Oh no, not "only possibly"; as I've stated before, there exist two options for explaining Seb's behavior (not mutually exclusive).
1) Seb is a giant troll
2) Seb is a giant retard

Seb may be trolling by saying that he's not a troll, which is retarded. Seb may also just really, genuinely think this way, which shows that he's retarded. Like, this retard/troll even said he had "a clearly articulated argument", when it was gibberish illogic and doublethink at best. So, retarded? Troll? Retarded troll? Yeah. Retarded troll sounds right.

Ugh, I forgot about that scene. That scene was worse than Ridley Scott's 2010 "Robin Hood" movie's ending scene where Robin Hood era soldiers disembarked at the Cliffs of Dover in wooden Higgins boats in a weird re-imagining of the "Saving Private Ryan" D-Day scene ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8DnR0OS6yE )... Can you imagine being in the writer's room of a 200 million dollar budget Star Wars movie pitching that garbage and having someone okay it? And then, after everything, they hire you back to write three more Star Wars movies? Rian Johnson finally found himself some suckers who were willing to make him rich.

..
[Seb]: "I thought you weren't reading my posts?"

I addressed this when GoT threads were populating UP, but Seb, having a poor memory, cannot remember better than any other goldfish in his unfiltered tank. Still, I'll quickly recap for bystander clarification: in threads about movies, TV, and culture (and this was *not* a complete list), I am more likely to read comments by UP's two cancerous users. But, I am not likely to talk *to* Seb or Jergul — I will talk *about* them or over them like one might speak of children and geriatric invalids while they sit in earshot. Since there was rarely good faith dialogue with them even when I spoke directly to them, that also means that I have no obligation to follow up with them while they try to grasp at the fading light of their elderly perceptions by speaking to me. In other words, at this point, I'll just trash them for being retarded, enjoy laughing, and move on when I feel that they've mocked themselves enough; they should expect abrupt endings. (E.g., the ""Right to bear arms" is all fake" thread wherein I trashed Jergul. I'm sure he responded, but would there be any good debate from him? No; the thread had already reached peak hilarious, so I can move on).

..
[Jergul]: "What would happen if I went to general talk and called you a retard and/or a troll as often as you throw that around in here?"

Shocking! Another schoolyard level counter from Jergul! This time it was "[How would *you* feel if I did that to *you*!]"

[Jergul's nearby albino 10-year-old friend on the playground who always has nose crust and ear infections]: "Yeah! We have feelings!"

lol...
And then some nonsense about UGT and UP.. Umm.. it's all the same login. And even if it wasn't, would he expect better treatment from me there? Too good. Bless his heart! He sure does try! :D

Many of you are retarded. When I started to entertain this possibility I saw the explanatory power and stuck with it. It was truly a weight off my shoulders. When you speak with educated people if the things they say back sound retarded, normal, pragmatic people with some ability to self-reflect will wonder, is it me? You may go around for weeks, and then, what if he/she is retarded? You flip through the thread(s), god dam it I explained this 4 times!

Verdict: RETARDED

But it requires at length discussions over something you disagree over. I have not done this with most people here. And the only one who came out of this as someone I believe isn’t retarded is Nekran.

The person who gets upset at their retardation, operating under the assumption that they are normal is not to blame.
