I'm just worried about the future films. All the old characters that people care about are gone and i think some interest will die down. Yeah there's Kylo and Ren, but ok.

I think this trilogy would have been infinitely better if all the fanservice charas were gone. I think that's personally what's held back these films.

People will see this shit regardless whether or not it has the ot actors. It's the same as comic book movies, people will watch any garb as long as the label "Star Wars" is on it. Just like marvel, dc, etc.

the first one had some great moments of visual storytelling. It definitely wasn't bad.

This topic is turning pretty bitter and cynical...

 

Don't forget escapism is an integral part of cinema. If you can't appreciate spending 2 hours away from life immersed in a fantasy maybe you shouldn't be watching these films in the first place. The fact that you do keep watching and feel so strongly about them tells me you do enjoy the experience.

Yeah no you’re right which is why it’s Lisa funny people debate these movies and the superhero movies so much. These movies have surface level depth despite their huge budgets 

 

 

like we are debating merits of a movie with a giant dog man as one of its heroes, this isn’t hamlet lol

The original trilogy has solid narrative qualities (luke-sunset-scene.mp4) and mythology building - they aren't terribly complex films but what they do they do extremely well. There's a reason it's spawned a massive franchise and the original films are still popular today, all 3 in the IMDB top 100

 

They preserve particularily well if you just ignore the entire franchise star wars has become, because all the extra material dispells the mysticism the first trilogy was supposed to convey.

Personally I don't even give a shit about Star Wars, I saw this, and think it's got great quality in every department other than having a pretty bad screenplay (not in dialogue, but in story and the way the film is put together) which drags the film down horrendously, but it's still OK enough so I'd say it's like a 5/10. Honestly, it's probably what I'd have expected from a Rian Johnson Star Wars, because Looper was pretty similar except the plot of Looper was so insane that it being nonsensical doesn't even register while you're watching it.
