Doesn't stop them from being idiots and having shit taste. Would you really compare yourself to a normie when it comes to movies?


TFA is an objectively good film and if you don't like it that perception had been driven by group think, to be edgy, not any real opinions you have.

I agree. 

As Amorn had brought up my previous hatred for Disney in a reply earlier in this thread in response to a different topic, I was pretty pissed off after Disney first took over Star Wars and started their ownership by cancelling pretty much everything that had been in development prior to their giant check going to George Luca$$.  I'm still mad about some of it. :P 

But I started out saying I'd never watch any Star Wars films or TV shows, read any books, play any games, buy any merchandise - blah blah blah blah blah - under the Disney license.  Almost immediately after "Star Wars Rebels" premiered, I changed my mind.  I was curious, and I decided to give it a chance, and i loved it.  My preconceptions about the then upcoming films were erased, and so going to go see "The Force Awakens" and to have a nice dinner at my favorite restaurant was actually what I told my parents I wanted to do for my birthday that year, even though TFA was not released for several days after my birthday. :P  We did it, I loved the film, and it was a great, memorable day with my family.  Most importantly for this discussion, I loved the film, despite being pig-headed and pessimistic about it earlier.

Don't judge a book by its cover, nor a film by some trendy conspiracy nerd bitchy thing like "they're just copying the original trilogy". :lol:

Also the verge of retarded we see from the "it's shit" crew is they show no understanding of how you rate a movie. It's not either shit or amazing, whole spectrum and TFA fell into the "it's alright, a fun film category" it ain't Citizen Kane but it didn't want to be. Internet reviewing has a big problem with "it's terrible, burn it all down" over one thing and it's idiotic.

Would anyone really say TFA was a 6/10 film? That the plot, acting, effects, etc was so bad it was worse than say "Grown Ups 2?" Clearly not, it's in that 7.5-8/10 area and be happy Disney gave you that because you could have got attack of the clones.

You would have thought there would have been some quality control for that. Hayden could have said "hey this line sucks, can we change it up a little" or "hey that take sucked, can I reshoot that". Or the screenwriters should have been like, "now that I hear that line read a loud, I don't like it as much." Or the director could have insisted on another take, or had Hayden say something different. Then when it hit the editing room, there is no way that should have made it in the film. 

 

But then again, all of the dialog between Padme and Anakin is awkward and robotic.

Well George Lucas did all those jobs himself so it sort of removed any concept of quality control

Lucas has always been a terrific director and screen writer, dialogue is not his game.

ESB, first 3 Indiana Jones movies, Red Tails, Willow. None of those were directed by him. The only ones that could be considered 'good' that he directed were American Graffiti and ANH.

ANH was his masterpiece but I'm very unsure that he even understands why.

Bilbo Baggins and Gollum are the only white people on the poster. They're the Tolkien white guys :D

:o

 

I can't wait for this one.  It has "epic" written all over it.  I haven't seen "Doctor Strange" yet, but after his cameo in "Thor: Ragnarok", I want to. :P  Also, we see Black Panther in this trailer, even though "Avengers: Infinity War" will not come out until after the first Black Panther stand-alone film is released.  The teaser at the end with Thor apparently meeting the Guardians of the Galaxy is the perfect ending to this first trailer, too, following the logo reveal set to a cue of the main Avengers theme.  I love it. :)
 

There was some footage leaked from a convention a few months ago that already confirmed the Guardians would be in the next Avengers film, and the way they first meet Thor is pretty funny. :lol:  I won't spoil it, but Google it or PM me if you want to know more about that.

After doing some research, apparently Sir Alec Guinness had a lot to do with fixing the script. Too bad he wasn't around for Attack of the Clones or he would have burned the entire thing and told them to start over from scratch.

I'd also heard that he specifically killed off his character because he thought the movie was going to be total trash. Don't know if that's true.

He liked the plot and the concept of the movie, but he didn't like Lucas' script. What he probably did not realize was how good the special effects would be for that time period. I don't think he ever thought it would be trash, he just did not think it was going to be good as it was going to be.

It's been a while since this thread got any attention, but I want to talk about a few things, and we've gotten away from the OT of trailers, so I'm going to talk about films and some franchises and things in general, so be advised there may be some spoilers. :o I will try to give more specific warnings when I'm about to spoil something, but in case I let something slip, you've been forewarned. :P

First of all the MCU...

"Avengers Infinity War".... Well, since it's release, it's rewriting the record books as I'm writing this, so it's safe to say that Marvel Studios yet again delivered in a big way. :P I knew it would be epic and awesome, but it surpassed my expectations, and at the end of the film, delivered a very heavy gut punch as an unexpected cliffhanger. Literally, the credits started rolling, and everyone in my cinema sat silently, and I was like "That's the end..?!" Of course there was a trademark post-credits scene that gave a ginormous hint of things to come, and those of us familiar with Marvel Studios know to never leave the theater until that final studio logo appears on screen and the lights come up and the theater employees come in and start cleaning...

Now come the MCU spoilers, so be warned.....



"Avengers Infinity War" was originally announced as two films - parts one and two. Marvel Studios ultimately re-titled both films, with the most recently released film being renamed "Avengers: Infinity War", and its sequel scheduled for next May being referred to now simply as "Avengers 4" until the full title is officially announced. However, it's clear that the next Avengers film will be a direct sequel to "Infinity War", as the resolution of that ginormous cliffhanger is pretty much mandatory. :lol:

Along those same lines, the TV series, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", was renewed for a 6th season earlier this week by ABC, but it was announced that the next season would not debut until Summer 2019. A lot of fans are complaining about the length of the hiatus, but I could not be happier, because this means that the series will continue after "Avengers 4" premieres, and I think that is what Disney/Marvel/ABC had planned all along. The season 5 finale of AoS airs this Friday, and I expect the big cliffhanger to tie into the "Infinity War" finale. Showrunners have said that the season finale could serve as a series finale if the show was not renewed. Now that it has been renewed, I'm kind of hoping that the last scene of the season finale tears things apart with the snap of someone's fingers. ;)

The next season will debut after "Avengers 4"... ABC's president said that she wasn't planning on it being the show's last season, so there is hope that it will continue beyond season 6, and I think that the schedule changes and such are being orchestrated so that the events in the MCU line up.

One more note about Marvel before I shift gears, and it has nothing to do with the MCU storylines or anything, but more about merchandising and marketing. "Black Panther" was supposed to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray today (5/15/2018). I couldn't pre-order it from Amazon because of some immature bitch feud they have with Disney. I've actually considered cancelling my Prime membership because it sucks that I can't enjoy my Prime benefits with anything from Marvel or Lucasfilm because Amazon can't play nice with Disney... HOWEVER... I stopped at my local Walmart store after work, planning to buy a copy of "Black Panther", but they only had a "Walmart Exclusive" version, which had the Blu-ray disc only, and no digital copy. Walmart was charging the same price for their "exclusive" version without the digital copy as Amazon was charging (after the release date) for the full version from Disney, including all of the special features and the digital copy... I had planned to buy a few other items from Walmart, but I left without purchasing anything because they pissed me off. On the way home, I used the Amazon app on my phone to pay roughly $23 to have a copy of the "Black Panther" Blu-ray delivered this coming Thursday. Walmart was charging roughly $23 for the same movie, but only the Blu-ray disc and no digital copy, and they were marketing it as an "exclusive". Walmart is packaging a cheaper product with no digital code and selling it as an "exclusive" as if there was some benefit to paying for half a product. They're ripping people off, so "buyer beware" - don't buy movies from Walmart.

The other thing I wanted to discus in this thread was "Solo".

I've tried to be optimistic and I still really hope this movie is good, but I just cannot get excited about it.  I think it's going to suck.  I hope I'm wrong, I hope I enjoy it more than I expect...  But all of the promotional materials and everything I've seen so far...  It's boring to me, and I think it sucks, and I think it was a giant mistake on Disney's part trying to recast Han Solo in the first place.  It wasn't needed, it won't work, and this will be a flop.

That's just my opinion so far.  Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, though, and be completely wrong. :)
