AOTC and ROTS look totally fine to me in terms of picture quality; I mean it’s not like they look like 28 Days Later or something.

28 Days Later looks that way on purpose (I assume, I don’t know anything about picture quality).

I mean, if you’re saying they chose to shoot it on a shit camera, sure.

I’m saying I assume it’s meant to look bad. It’s a dirty grimy “dangerous” movie. And maybe they used a shit camera on purpose to achieve that look.

But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe they had zero money.

How many 'Bad' Star Wars movies could you take before you check out?

If you think Rian Johnson or Disney or Star Wars hates you or ruined your life or ruined everything that came before it (especially the OT), then you’re being ridiculous.

True.

Unless one is simply being hyperbolic, which I had assumed was the case was ExNihilo but admittedly is often not so for a great many trolls who visit here.

I meant to address this before you posted again, but I wanted to say that I understood he was being hyperbolic. It was clear from the get go. I just take issue with being hyperbolic in that way (comparing it to abuse). It’s no different than the old “Lucas raped my childhood” nonsense and we don’t need it here.

On the Original Topic:
I really don’t know how many. I want to say after TLJ, I’m out. But part of me knows I’ll see Episode 9.
TLJ felt like a punch to the stomach.
How many times can you tell me you hate me before I believe it?
Am I in an abusive relationship with Star Wars?
I’ll probably see EpIX because I’m a glutton for punishment.
But who knows, JJ could redeem it all!

When TPM came out, it didn’t bother me that is was terrible because it was just a movie, and it didn’t make me enjoy the previous movies any less. My reaction to TLJ surprised me. It actually made me mad. I had to remind myself it was just a movie and it didn’t matter.

I’ll probably see IX. I’ll see it in theater if either my kids or my wife want to go. I’ve actually seen TLJ twice because my wife didn’t go with us the first time, and she wanted to see it. But I’m not expecting IX to redeem anything. Hopefully it will be great, but TLJ will still stink if it is.

I wish everyone could enjoy Star Wars the way they enjoy Star Trek. No one ever worries about the bad ones spoiling the whole Star Trek series. The bad ones are just the bad ones.

We don’t agree on TLJ’s quality but I fully support you here. If you didn’t like TLJ, if it disappointed you, if you’re even a little mad that it ruined TFA or it ruined the ST for you, I got no problem with that.

If you think Rian Johnson or Disney or Star Wars hates you or ruined your life or ruined everything that came before it (especially the OT), then you’re being ridiculous.

A college professor with a messy desk might look to not have any organization, but there may be a rhyme and a rhythm to them that you can’t see.

Yeah but he’s always the one who committed the murder.

Okay, back to your usual ‘passive aggressive’ self.

Stop. Dre hasn’t said anything to antagonize you. Don’t be like that.

Agreed.

I was sure that Dre used the force choke. wasn’t it obvious?

#ROTJPigMen

He just wanted Matt to have a nice relaxing nap. He’s a giver, that Dre guy.

I decided a few months ago that my favourite movie is The Evil Dead from 1981. It’s not the greatest film I’ve ever seen based on quality but it is basically criticism proof in my eyes. Every time I try to think of something bad I realise I wouldn’t like the movie as much without those things. Like sure, it has pretty bad acting, effects, storyline and dialogue, but without those things I wouldn’t like it.

I didn’t put it on my list, but I love Santa Claus Conquers to Martians. I genuinely find it to be a good movie which happens to have some poor qualities, but the poor qualities make it even better.

What.

One can easily buy the original broadcast version TNG episodes though.

And let’s be real, upscaled shots of the original VFX alongside new HD scans of non-effects shots would look like complete garbage.

So a 4K upscale of AOTC would look like garbage?

Well yeah but it’s AOTC so that’s a given.

AotC is the best Star Wars movie to date since 1999, so stop disrespecting it.

Sounds reasonable.
