Oh it’s this again, is it.
The difference is that those aren’t soft reboots that force the world and story to retread the same tired ground for the sake of nostalgia, and in fact those examples derive much of their impact from the accomplishments of the prior movies.
Except nothing they did ended up mattering in the slightest, either.
Nothing Thor, Heimdall, Loki or Hulk did in Ragnarok mattered, Thanos was just gonna kill the other Asgardians.
Except for the half he didn’t kill who formed New Asgard on Earth…
Getting the Avengers to team up didn’t matter either, they just broke up in Civil War.
Except when the Avengers saved the entire universe…
Everything that happened in Future Past didn’t matter, either, all the other X-Men are dead and the Earth is basically an apocalypse now.
Ecept that Days of Future Past specifically averted an apocalypse and there’s no apocalypse in Logan despite your bizarre assertion that there is one. I genuinely wonder if you are hallucinating a different movie.
At least the OT’s accomplishments delayed Palpatine and the Empire, and gave our newest generation of heroes enough time and lessons and training and preparation and whatnot to stop them forever. The specific destruction of the NR was necessary to make the FO threat seem real and set up TLJ and to show that the Republic was inherently flawed and that the galaxy’s citizens and people needed to cooperate with each other. The specific destruction of the Jedi is there to make Luke feel guilty for failing Ben.
I’m not gonna bother rebutting each point because digging a hole in a river would be a better use of my time, suffice to say that nothing you say even comes close to even addressing the fact that the films are soft reboots that force the world and story to retread the same tired ground for the sake of nostalgia.
So why are you even bringing up this page 1 statement on page 5? That’s a rhetorical question, btw. I think we all know why.
