Its a joy to read your posts Valheru_84

Can’t tell if you are serious or super sarcastic 😉 (like Father Jessup level)

Serious, your posts are inteligent as well as your observations. You constantly have methodological approach even while trying, in detailed description to explain to others what is obvious to you.

What I find funny is when people say that there’s a feminist agenda mandated by Kathleen Kennedy.

As if JJ and Rian couldn’t possibly be feminists.

Its obvious there is a propaganda or catering to radical feminists. I find it funny that people blindly deny this. I mean have you watched the movie? Swap genders and you have one of the most sexist movies ever made.
Nobody is questioning if JJ and Rian are feminists or they simply do it for money.
Someone mentioned that feminist ideas are a new ground for cash so that could be it also.

Hello everyone.

I have just coined a new term:

fanbros

for those fanboys who need the male characters in a story to always be unambiguously the most competent ones, no exceptions - although don’t get them wrong, of course they still like women, and of course they still like strong female characters, just not too many of them

I found a new term also:

Pussyboysfanmob

nice to see sjw mob is in full strength again :hi5:

Thanks for confirming that I nailed it, fanbro.

Pleasure is all mine pussyboy 😗

One of the issues I have with the new movies is the constant over-explanation of everything. Star Wars has never been subtle, but did we really need to see people with monocles and tuxedos on understand that these were rich people?

TLJ was a movie-equivalent of a Thomas Kinkade painting.

over explanation and justification

What if IX makes her the Chosen One then ? (but it would go against the “socialist” view of the movie about the Force which belongs to everyone, no-one included). If you think about it, Anakin was one of the most powerful Jedi of the Order but thanks to Obi-Wan restraints he never got too much powerful (TPM and then AOTC deal with that actually) while growing mistrust against the Order (TCW/ROTS deal with that as well). Imagine if he had stayed alone a a shitty planet, would he have become like Rey, very powerful in a matter of days ?
But I agree about Rey nonetheless, I has always been my main criticism against TFA.

Yeah, but even Anakin needed years of training to become a Jedi. He could see things before they happen, which was presented as a trait of someone with a lot of Force potential, but to use Jedi mind tricks, levitation, and to be proficient with a lightsaber required a lot of effort.

This scene in TESB clashes with the final scenes of TLJ in a major way:

Again, these are ‘perceived continuity clashes’ that you’re pulling out simply to try and discredit the new movies.

Now that you’re using the PT here’s one for you - why didn’t Ben take Luke to be trained by Yoda at a much younger age?

We know he has Skywalker blood - the Force is biological right? We know in ESB that Yoda thinks Luke should have been trained far younger. Why did Kenobi leave it so long?

Why do people assume that because Yoda says “he is too old to begin the training” in ESB that Yoda really meant it? Why can it not just be Yoda’s way of trying to get Luke to show his resolve and a willingness to take it seriously?

Luke and Leia are the only two currently-known Force-Sensitives remotely capable of taking down Vader and the Emperor. Yoda knows this. I don’t see Yoda legitimately giving up on Luke so easily.

I felt this way too, I would add that I imagine Yoda as someone who also values his time (which is comming to an end), like most mystics /wisemen are portrayed, which also makes him a bit reclusive about the training.

PewDiePie? Really?

The lad who did this - https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/sep/11/pewdiepie-racism-youtube-games-industry & http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-41222593

and in the first line of his video you linked to says, after mocking the hype re the new Star Wars film, ‘I’m not that big of a Star Wars fan’.
 

Nandi, if you’re going to post a video or review here etc then add some info and context to it - it’ll help members make a decision as to whether they wish to click on it before doing so.

Do not just post a link.

What does him saying the n-word have to do with anything lol

Given the lad’s history why shouldn’t it be said his opinion may not hold much weight?

Also in the context of ‘I’m not that big of a Star Wars fan’ too.

‘lol’? Really?

I’m not arguing his opinion isn’t absolutely worthless. I’m just asking why would him saying the n-word make his opinion more worthless? One of my best friends is racist towards hispanic people, but I’m not going to start throwing his opinions out the door on other matters regardless of how stupid his feelings are on one matter.

Did you click on the links and read them? Likely not - as if you did you’d realise it’s not just ‘the n-word’, is it? And also what the gist of the Guardian article is about too, yes?

And I didn’t say anything about using ‘the n-word’ making his opinion more worthless. You seemingly assumed that.

Also, again, in the context of ‘I’m not that big of a Star Wars fan’ too.

 

Anyway, back on topic…

As a person who watches pewdiepie from time to time (I’m so sorry), I have seen the “controversial videos”. . His first controversy consisted of “news” cherry picking jokes, taking them out of context and editing them in such a way that it made him look back. The original videos were fine, no racism there.
His second controversy was that he shouted “oh what a f_____g n____r” at a bot (not at a person, but a video game character), he quickly changed it to “oh what an a_____e”. When he realized what he said he started to apologize then he started to laugh with an “oh shit I hope nobody noticed that” look.
It was stupid, childish and absolutely wrong, but his explanation made perfect sense - he wanted to be offensive for comedic purposes, so he said the first offensive word which came to his mind. Why was THAT word the first which came to his mind, that’s the a good question though.

Because online games are full of those kind of stuff, it can get into your head subconsciously and slip the same way.
Anyway back on topic 😃

I was hopping there would be something more in the dark cave - not necessary what Luke faced, but something. Also that Rey narative from third person felt weird “I was not afraid then, etc” (which is something I feel movie is suffering from, too much explanation, even justification), the scene looked cool but it all ended with mirror “trip”.

The same thing is true to an extend for Kylo. He’s obviously in a place of power at the end, but I don’t really feel the character has changed from the ending of TFA to the ending of TLJ. It seemed like it for a while, but then the reset button was hit in the throne room sequence.

“the twist is there is no twist” 😃)

Kylo should have been in some “different” organization to start this trilogy, not just Empire 2.

This is true. If anything, I don’t give TLJ guff for throwing out ideas TFA set up. I’d more readily give TFA guff for setting them up in the first place since they weren’t all that great anyway.

Your film will not be made stronger if it torpedoes the foundation it is supposed to be building on. Even if the foundation is flawed.

But it doesn’t. TFA is not the foundation. The OT is. TLJ does not torpedo the OT.

For TLJ to take a turn different than the TFA suggested is not torpedoing the foundation of the story.

It torpedoes TFA, it torpedoes the characters from OT and makes fun of both

Luke doesnt do anything even after
he gets his lightsaber
he learns Han was murdered
he learns Leia is in a coma
and he tries to kill a teen nephew

everything in this movie is a comic relief, like RedLetterMedia said; was the director trolling the fans???
