Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

This guy has done a pretty comprehensive video on some of the more negative, maybe even toxic elements, of click bait fandom, especially about The Last Jedi:

I am sure not everyone will agree with it (and I don’t fully), but it is worth posting here for those that wish to see an alternative take, on some of the more unjust or outlandish criticism of modern Star Wars, and also how some within also twist and contort what is, or has, actually being said by people working on Star Wars or at Lucas film, to try and prove or further their view or agenda.

The Chronological Star Wars – A Year-Long Critical Reappraisal

I enjoyed reading the Solo entry, and while I didn’t agree with some of your viewpoints in there, they did get me thinking about it and other alternative points of view and how other fans arrived at them. I look forward to your next piece(they are very well written and laid out) and reading more of your older articles on there as well.

Thanks 😃

Hey mate,

I’m actually the guy who made those VHS covers, if you would like if you give me your email address I can send you my designs and I’ll throw in some other designs too (I’ve also made some other designs since then that could fit in a claim shell case for VII-IX). I also do have a VHS copy of TFA however I got a Retro records and Dvd store guy to make it for me here in Australia.

Cheers Marco

Also my email is bluraymarco@gmail.com

Could you post some examples of your work on here too please, bluraymarco? They are some truly great covers you have come up with.

Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes

I love the addition of other sources in your thread 005 and that this has been pinned so it is easier to find.

You ARE the change guy! 👏

A little off topic… but this on your twitter page (that ooj linked to in his thread) is also superb find of George Lucas in his own words - https://twitter.com/doubleofive/status/1151316503314227205

So you are repeating yourself. Okay, thankyou for the clarification.

You ‘enjoyed some elements, some of which I’ve mentioned in the previous post (visuals, acting, some of the character moments, specifically the Luke/Rey/Kylo/Snoke dynamic, and Luke’s illusion, and its implications for the future of the rebellion at the end, though not his dying from it)’ - but that’s not lip service? Really? Okay then.

‘the main reason I made the last post actually comes from watching a few videos analyzing the business model of the Disney coorporation, and forming my own opinion on it in relation to the upcoming remakes of Aladdin, The Lion King , Mulan (in addition to Dumbo this year, and the slew of remakes or adaptations we got in previous years), and placing the ST in that context, and not liking where things are headed. I started wondering why we as a movie viewing audience are so uncritical of this Trojan Horse in our wallets feeding on our nostalgia? I like a good remake, or adaptation just like the next person, but should the underlying corporate strategy that drives this business model affect our enjoyment of them, especially when every dollar that gets spent on remakes, and adaptations isn’t spent on new content?’ - surely this is worthy of a new thread to discuss? rather than in here?

‘Let me end this post with the following question. Does the ST thusfar, and TLJ specifically fit within the Disney remake strategy: same meat, different gravy? If no, why not?’ what is the Disney remake strategy? In general, or for the ST? Again surely worthy of discussing in a new separate thread? (or a thread on these subjects, if one already exists? Though if so I suppose it would defer from the repeated reasons why TLJ is ‘X’ in here.

I said above that ‘I can now see why some people no longer wish to read this thread, or visit this thread, or talk about TLJ on here, if we are just going to repeat what we have already said again and again.’ I think I’ll be joining them in not visiting this thread further. Good luck with the future already repeated points in here.

I am sorry DrDre, I feel like you have already said these things before in this thread, on a few occasions? I apologize if not, yet I seem to have a feeling of deja vu when reading it.
It doesn’t make your well-made points any less valid, but I can now see why some people no longer wish to read this thread, or visit this thread, or talk about TLJ on here, if we are just going to repeat what we have already said again and again. My apologies again if I am wrong on this.
It is a shame we do not have a ‘what we didn’t like’ type thread, or ‘what they nailed’ type thread for TLJ, as there was for TFA and some of the other films on here, to maybe help keep topics and this thread from less repetition? Or a ‘what is the political situation of the Republic and First Order in the Sequel films’ thread?
I see start of posts saying like ‘for all the good things’ but people don’t then say what those things are. The same for those who post ‘for all the bad things’, and then mention focus or mention on the good. It comes across as empty lip service, to me anyway. Maybe mention what are all the good things you enjoyed actually are?
