I am boycotting until Disney sells the Star Wars franchise to someone who gives a crap. I can’t say that I have seen a satisfying Star Wars movie since the original trilogy concluded. The acting is atrocious and the storylines are pedestrian at best. The only thing that drives these movies is the fantastic musical score.

Meh. I'll go see it. It has become a Christmas tradition for our family to go see the latest Star Wars. I think the new movies have been fine. A little bit of nostalgia, good action and some humor thrown in. Do I have criticisms? Sure. I don't take it that serious though.

If we were to be honest, the original trilogy isn't some kind of cinematic masterpiece (could argue Empire). The writing isn't much better than Episodes 1-3 and they have there fair share of annoying muppets (Jedi anyone?). The biggest reason we covet the original movies is because of the nostalgia we feel for them.

Now that I'm in my 40's, I've accepted the fact that no sequel, prequel, reboot or spin off is going to capture the same feeling for my favorite movies as a kid. I do hope that my kids will have the same experiences with the new Star Wars movies or any of their other favorites.

I disagree.
The originals were very good movies.

As for nostalgia, well of course it's nostalgia.
These movies wouldn't exist without Disney trying to cash in on nostalgia.

Maybe if Disney didn't crap all over the original material they could have built on the franchise.
All they've done is ruin it.

eh the clone wars tv show fleshed out the prequel era it can be some what hard to get into initally as its mostly a kids show for about the first season but then gets into more serious real world politics/economic issues. some blantant and others subtle

for example one of the big battle arcs (it aired around time of 2nd iraq war) is the battle on the planet Fallujah) is one of the more "on the nose examples

it lightly and in some cases in more detail covers issues like PTSD and battle fatigue as the war draws on and on and how the clones react to constant combat (see 5's)

cover's aspects of how banking can be shady as hell and how some go for profiteering in times of war (see the banking clans lending to both the republic and the separatists ) and how those in power can profit from war and often encourage it to continue solely for profit margins

it coveres how some of even the most idealistic society can fall to corruption and evil even with them not having negativity intentions initially (see asoka and Anakins growing disillusionment with the jedi coucil leading to the latter's fall to the dark side after being manipulated by palpatine) and hell even shows the actual impact of Jar jar binks (shudders hes terrible) basically starting the whole ball rolling down hill for the star wars universe

www.sithobserver.com...


10. Onderon rebels Season: 5 Episodes: "A War on Two Fronts," "Front Runners," "The Soft War," "Tipping Points" For most of its duration, The Clone Wars is about a full-on war between two factions of roughly equal strength. When Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and Rex travel to Onderon to teach a group of freedom fighters how to effectively win back control of their planet from the Separatists, we get something closer to the Rebels-vs-Empire conflict seen in Star Wars Rebels and the entire Original Trilogy.
treat this as an explanation to kids for how the relations with the taliban and to a more recent extent the kurds ended up


9. Obi-Wan and Satine Season: 2 Episodes: "The Mandalore Plot," "Voyage of Temptation," "Duchess of Mandalore"
this covers more star wars then RL implications but goes on to what the new movie will cover on how the strict "no relations" impacted and lead to the fall of the jedi but padme and anakin are the better example


5. Mortis Season: 3 Episodes: "Overlords," "Altar of Mortis," "Ghosts of Mortis" One of the most surreal Clone Wars arcs explores the nature of the Force itself when Anakin, Ahsoka, and Obi-Wan are unwillingly transported to the ancient realm of Mortis, inhabited by three incredibly powerful beings: the angelic Daughter on the Light Side of the Force, the sinister Son on the Dark Side, and the wise, neutral Father.
this would be the big one in the over all context of starwars lore as it explains how anakins fall was fortold but it was mostly kept from him and is your standard shades of good vs shades of evil the link also covers standards of what lead to bobafetts fall as his constant quest for vengence consumed his life and even fleshes out darth mauls history and impact in the over all franchise (they sure liked brining him back from the dead) that then culminates in the near finale of rebels where he once again does battle with obiwon and they both find peace in the end after the trauma they have each endured

www.imdb.com...

ill admit im a fan boy of starwars but it did cover some pretty adult topics for a kids show as far as the tv shows go and the clone wars comes the closest to redeeming the Prequel trilogy if watched all the way through and rebels gives answers to how anakins padawan reacts to her former masters fall and is one of the key points when he turned truly dark before his redemption in the original trilogy and more important to real world issues coveres what happens to the clone troopers as out side of vaders 501st most of them ended up sadly how we treat a good deal of our veterans today (sadly forgotten and mostly pushed to the side after all they have done for their respective nations)

It's about being woke to the racial oppressive world around you and the part you played in it for being born who and what you were or something as near as I can figure out.

I, for example, am a horrid white oppressor person who happens to be Christian with all the awfulness that entails too. I can only somewhat salvage this be being female because women are often oppressed all over and by the religion I own. Even then, because I am conservative, it does not count because I am also misogynist for that reason even being a woman.

Trailer didn't look bad. Lots of beautiful cgi. Probably a good movie if you just acept it's going to be corny as hell.

Rolled my eyes a few times at the last movie, but looks like a fun movie to turn your brain off to.

Nahhh the original film and trilogy had a story to it,and even though many thought it would bomb including Sir Alec Guinness it instead spurred two future sets of trilogies that have had bigger budgets and buzz yet sputtered compared to the first 3.

A surprising lack of lens flares from JJ here.

The second movie made $600 million less worldwide that the first and $300 million less domestically.
For the math geeks that a drop of 35% worldwide and 34% domestic.
After watching the last trailer it wouldn't surprise me to see the same drop again.


In the event this installment completely flops, will they wrap the series up as planned? Or will they revisit things down the road and throw another 3-5 movies at us?

This movie is the end of the trilogy....

There is supposed to be a new trilogy after that so if it flops that might be effected..

Trailer looked horrible, just a bunch of hyped up garbage for a franchise that should be direct to dvd in the 5 dollar bin.

All the chips are falling at the same time on all these MEGA franchises that certain people utilized as a platform to spread their ridiculous twitter echo chamber nonsense(one they didn't realize was drastically smaller than they thought).

Star wars, Star Trek, all the superhero crap, Doctor who....and so much more.

Right into the dumpster, a flaming dumpster filled with horse feces.

Apparently, Lando is gay or trans, or something now. So they can't kill him off. Chewie perhaps. Likely because he represents "toxic masculinity", or some such thing.


Eta- Lando is "pansexual", whatever that means. Google it!

The trailer wasn't bad, but it didn't get me too excited either. The obvious big bad (that they just HAD to add of course) was the damned SD cavalry charge.

I like the visuals though. And I don't get the Kylo-bashing which I pick up here and there on the net, but to each his own. I like the angle they've taken with him, striving to be something he can never be. People call him whiny..well, have they watched the prequels? I mean, speaking of garbage, they are the definition of it.

EDIT: I do feel sorry for Hayden Christensen as he seems like a very nice fellow.

I also want to admit that I was hoping for a call to arms scenario where they have to scrounge around to find allies, meaning they have more of a rag tag fleet of older ships. It seems that wish is granted.

TFA was pretty darn good considering the state of Star Wars before that. TLJ was just miserable, with a few
exceptions.
