Oh cool, ignore what Mark Hamill says today, and keep posting what he said yesterday. Cherry picking.
What did he say today? Got a link? I watch a fair few videos (too many according to Frink) and read plenty of articles as I find them but I haven’t seen and heard everything. However whatever he did say, I don’t see how it would nullify what he plainly says here and in one go. The video is not cut together, it’s one full section of an interview.
So I’m still waiting for that link after you accused me of cherry picking? One way or the other would you mind substantiating your claim, otherwise please revoke that accusation.
Well you did sort of cherry pick what mark was talking about in the video you posted to try and prove your point. For one, that was still an edited video where they only fade in as he is half way through talking ( it should be noted that the video was posted by a youtube user called Jar Jar Abrahms, a user that hates the Disney SW films). You focus on mark saying how he disagreed with how his character is in TLJ in videos, how he "should actually be commended for cleverly telling people how badly written his character is without openly saying it ", yet fail to mention that, in that same video you posted, he is talking about how he doesn’t like being out of his comfort zone. And how it was important for the story and how he came to realise that. Then you go on to say that it was a negative thing when he says that the new trilogy wasn’t all planned out, like that was a bad thing, yet fail to point out that he was wrong when he was talking about how the OT was all planned out.
As for what he said recently, this is one of his tweets:
"I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public.Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private. All I wanted was to make good movie. I got more than that- @rianjohnson made an all-time GREAT one! "
And this is a comment he made over 7 months ago:
"I was quoted as saying to Rian that I fundamentally disagree with everything you decided about Luke, and it was inartfully phrased. What I was, was surprised at how he saw Luke. And it took me a while to get around to his way of thinking, but once I was there it was a thrilling experience. I hope it will be for the audience too…
Rian Johnson is an amazing filmmaker. And if you look at Brick, or Brothers Bloom, or Looper, each film is different from the last one and they’re so inventive. And I think people will be really pleased and surprised, I know I was."
Most of the videos being branded around are cherry picked, edited pieces to try and prove that mark hated the film, when in fact he did not. It just makes a good story to present things that way and gains clicks. They omit the times he said, prior to the films release, that he said positive things about how Rian handled his character and how his insecurities were just because of the way he saw Luke and not necessarily how he should be portrayed for the story to progress. Now, even when the original full interviews come to light and Mark comes right out and makes things clear, he just gets accused of being forced to say that by Disney. You can take snippets from almost anything to prove a point. It doesn’t mean its correct.
