Honestly all these blockbusters have so much bullshit that I can't tell anymore. lol
It's basically the switch-blade that turns into a comb so that you know how bad-ass your greaser-bully character is.
I liked a lot about The Force Awakens, but I deliberately withheld my judgement on it's larger story because I knew it was the first part of a trilogy, and I wanted to give it a chance.
You are my SW twin, my thoughts exactly. I actually think the majority of people feel this way but the noise surronding SW is so loud it turns into something else. The Solo ticket sales definately gave them a kick in the ass tho.I liked a lot about The Force Awakens, but I deliberately withheld my judgement on it's larger story because I knew it was the first part of a trilogy, and I wanted to give it a chance.
On paper, Rogue One seemed like a movie I'd really enjoy, but it was just devoid of anything enjoyable for me. Not really bad, just aggressively mediocre.
The Last Jedi was an odd mix of good and terrible, and while I appreciate what it was trying to do, I can't understand how the bad parts got greenlit. And in hindsight it tipped my TFA judgement into the "bad" column, while looking forward it managed to kill off any excitement I had for more sequels. Then I saw that it had become the latest battleground in a culture war, and all the discussion around it became toxic (like, you can't even complain about the movie without people assuming that you're alt-right, which is an experience that makes the movie even worse, but I guess not so bad as people who like it having to deal with alt-right shitheads, so nobody wins).
I expected to hate Solo, but I watched it anyways (not in the theater), and it was exactly what I thought it would be.
I didn't expect to have any hype for Rise of Skywalker, but the trailers have been giving me a spark of hope. I don't want that spark of hope. I fully expect to be let down. But... I can't deny that RoS is giving me a feeling that feels a lot like the feeling that TFA gave me before it came out (but much smaller). It's probably JJ. The man knows how to build anticipation. But he doesn't apparently know how to land a satisfying ending. Or will he land the ending this time? Will JJ redeem TFA? Will he redeem TLJ? My brain says "No!", but I can't deny that my heart is trying to say "Yes!". I'll most likely watch it, but probably not in theater.
I've heard great things about the Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels cartoons, but I have yet to properly watch them. They're on my list.
I really enjoyed The Force Awakens, especially after my second viewing. My first viewing left me kind of annoyed at how much it copied from A New Hope, but after watching it a second time, I just ignored that aspect and enjoyed it much more. Only complaints I would still have would be nitpicks, like Rey using force powers without any training.
Not the only one..
Same. The more i think about it the more i think that TLJ is the worst SW movie ever.I genuinely enjoyed TFA even though it had some world-building issues. TLJ could have fixed those issues but instead doubled down on everything that didn't work in TFA. Plot- and structure-wise TLJ is a mess of a movie that also manages to undermine the original trilogy. Rogue One was OK and I haven't seen Solo.
I'm honestly bummed that this trilogy has turned into such a farce because it started out great.
They both really good. And in the case of Clone Wars, proves that when GL has people around him that act as a lens for his ideas, he's still good.
all i remembered for months was the dumb dog horse chase. that's all that stuck with me
I can't quite explain why, but the quick left-to-right pan on the close-up makes me feel like it's done for comedy.
Presumably for folding up and portability? Seems like she did some modding so that the safety was deactivated and she could have the blades on in the closed position. Which is all to say it looks like a knockoff toy.
I wasn't even sure if it was Daisy Ridley when I first saw it. I was like "is Rey's mom secretly a sith working for palpatine?"
