Since when did movies have to start explaining everything? I don’t get that. Even books don’t. You explain what you need to get across the main points. Why can’t movies make you think? Leave things out and make you wonder?
again, if in the next movie Han (not a ghost) suddenly walked into a room, don’t you think that would require an explanation?
somethings need to be explained.
And just why does one force user doing something in one movie mean that no one has ever been able to do that before.
it doesn’t. But when we discover that forces users can do x, and it would have made sense for a certain force user to do x in previous movie, doesn’t that beg for an explanation? For example lets say we find out in the next movie that force users can make themselves invisible. I am willing to bet there are all kinds situations in the previous movies where it would have made sense for a force user to make himself invisible and yet they did not. It would require an explanation.
Lucas gave us new force powers in nearly every film. In Episode I, Qui-gon and Obi-wan run super fast. Why can’t they do that in the OT? Yikes, a mistake.
yep it is mistake. and some are worse than others.
Any ongoing franchise is a living thing that grows and changes as each new installment comes out. With luck, the new ones enhance the old ones.
but the new ones need to fit in with the old ones.
But this idea that we’ve seen it before so these new films must follow those rules exactly is very funny to me.
it is called consistency. it is called continuity.
If you take that back far enough it means that we should have seen everything the force could do in ANH. Because everything since then had changed things. Oh my.
no, but if we discover the force can now do x it would have made sense to do x in a situation in ANH, it begs the question as to why x wasn’t done in ANH.
So here’s a big one that was never explained in the movies. How is Leia a princess?
