NightCrawler said:It's funny how i've been reading a lot of complains over the politics in this movie. George Lucas knew what the fans wanted all along.
I doubt people would have minded had there been no space politics involved at all. But they not only put some in there, they half-assed it too... so frankly it's normal people complain.
m said:I need to mention that I didn't like the original trilogy as much as many other people did, and I didn't hate the prequels as many people did, so most likely my biases are different than Johnstantine's and yours. I recently watched all six movies, the prequels for only the second time, and my opinion didn't change overall.
I find that... disturbing.
m said:I hear you, but I want to take it as a step in the right direction anyway.
Yeah, I really liked how it ended up with those two characters, regardless of why it did.
m said:I just assumed that the conditioning all Storm Troopers are subjected to doesn't stick the same way on all of them. But perhaps this is something that will be expanded on next time? Who knows, this could be the key to the next episodes just as Jar-Jar Binks was for the prequels. Kidding aside, it would have been interesting to have more information on this. On a related note, I think not explaining things in a good way is something I think this movie did on a few counts. I also got the feeling that the final movie ended up being a lot shorter that what it was meant to be, which is perhaps why some things are not as clear as they could be.
Oh yeah, lots of stuff basically came out of nowhere. If we start on this it'll take hours to list. As for the movie having been shortened, maybe. That would certainly explain why a lot of stuff comes and goes like it does. Thing is, I felt the movie was already trying to do too much at once, so having it even longer and packed with even more stuff would have probably made it a chore to watch.
m said:One final thought: it would be great to listen to a Skullcast about this movie. Just sayin'...
Walter won't see it till after the next podcast unfortunately, but I think Griff and I will probably chat about it for a bit after the episode talk.
