Also Lucas hasn’t made a solid ending to a SW film since Empire. What’s sad is that I don’t even know all the specifics of what Lucas contributed to the ending of Empire so I wouldn’t be so quick to give him that type of props.

I dislike AOTC, but I think it had a solid ending. The war begins and we see the massive army ready to ship out to the front lines and Anakin and Padme sneak away for a forbidden wedding and whatever pleasure they can get in a galaxy about to be torn apart by war. Of course it looks terrible and you have to forget the last 2 hours.

In general the ending was competent, but everything that preceded the ending was garbage and endings are built upon the foundations of a story. Not even one person at the end continued to question the suspect nature surrounding the Clone Army and that tarnished the whole thing for me.

I haven’t watched the Prequels in at least 6 years so its all faded a bit for me.

I’m jealous.

It takes more effort to watch something that to not watch something.
I haven’t seen any of the PT is over a decade. I doubt I ever will again.

I’m trying to take it further than that; I’ve been actively trying to push the PT to the furthest corner of my mind.

Well yes, Sidious could disarm Vader. However, Vader is able to keep up an endless burst of telekinesis

So can Sidious and his telekinetic powers surpass Vader’s.

and can shrug off most lightsaber blows.

Fair enough but Sidious’ speed and mastery of all seven Lightsaber Forms compensates for this. There are so many blows Vader can take before Palpy lands a death blow.

That and Vader actually has some defence against Sith Lightning built into his suit and can use his lightsaber to block force lightning.

What Ray said.

Essentially only trying to think about it if I’m faced by the stimuli and even in those instances I try to avoid any conversations or photos concerning the Prequels. Rogue One has made this process so much easier.

I got the whole tutaminus thing from Jensari 1 on Youtube. Nevertheless, Vader could just absorb it using his lightsaber or could continuously disrupt Sidous’s concentration by using telekinesis thusly preventing him from using force lightning.

Jensari, EvanNova and the rest of them only say that Vader could absorb or redirect blaster bolts. If Vader could just absorb Force Lightning so many people wouldn’t see his suit as so debilitating. Vader can only use his Saber for so long before Sidious disarms him.

@Ender

The Emperor had more midichlorians in his right pinky than Vader had in whatever was left of his body. Bringing up Palatine’s left pinky would just be unfair.

Sidious is faster, has mastered ALL seven forms of Lightsaber combat, is capable of conjuring Force Lightning that can turn foes to ashes. The Emperor also knows more Dark Side abilities and is more proficient at the powers they do share minus telepathy.

To your point about tutaminis…Vader can’t use tutaminis to absorb or redirect Force Lightning due to his suit. I’m not sure where you got that from.

ROTS Sidious would fuck Vader’s shit up. It doesn’t matter what version of Vader he faces.

Either that or scour the Earth for a more competent writer and just have JJ direct.

That would be a decent solution. I can admit JJ’s writing is nothing that gets me too excited exactly. However, I think he’s the kind of director where the script makes or breaks the final product. It is fair to mention that both the Trek films he directed also had two terrible Hollywood writers. Although '09 was better… So maybe their work is just on a spectrum.

Then again they also wrote ‘The Legend of Zorro’ and ‘Transformers’ so I don’t know what to believe.

JJ has definitely gotten more shit thrown at him than he deserves, but even with Kasdan he still couldn’t produce a great script. I can sense JJ’s influence in the bad aspects of TFA and the rest of the ST doesn’t need to be plagued with a writer who’s that hit or miss. To be blunt, the elements that will make Star Wars thrive for decades to come isn’t in JJ’s skill set.

Before TFA, Lucas had crafted all the stories. Lucas knows how to write an ending. Abrams doesn’t. I consider the Ach-to segment in TFA to be discardable epilogue. Kasdan is a good screen writer, but it was Lucas who created TESB and ROTJ, not Kasdan. Lucas has sole story credit on all 6 films.

Regardless of who was credited Kasdan put in enough work in ESB for Lucas to deem it his least favorite film in the saga. Until TFA I’m guessing.

What IX needs is a good story and for Kennedy to hounds Abrams to follow the story and not do his own thing. He is a good director, but a bad story teller. This could work, but knowing how Hollywood works, the chances are slim.

I’m hoping VIII makes JJ really jealous and he drags that with him during the entire process. That’s the only way we’ll be getting something bold.

EDIT:

Also Lucas hasn’t made a solid ending to a SW film since Empire. What’s sad is that I don’t even know all the specifics of what Lucas contributed to the ending of Empire so I wouldn’t be so quick to give him that type of props.

It’s hard to believe the same minds who picked Rian Johnson to bring the story into new and bold places are bringing JJ back to finish it. It wreaks of desperation and it might have been more advantageous to delay the film further so that Rian can recharge his battery. Either that or scour the Earth for a more competent writer and just have JJ direct.
