    The Star Wars Holiday Special is better than The Last Jedi.
    Seriously though the whole sequel trilogy should have been similar to the prequel trilogy with its story. Then it could have ended on a good note like the original trilogy did, or end like a tragedy and set up another new trilogy which could have been similar to the original trilogy.

    For both of these movies I had heard a lot of bad leading in, and thought they would be decent enough as standalone movies but awful as Star Wars films. I mean, I expected them to he bad films going in but I was also thinking "if they weren't Star Wars movies they would just be mediocre."
    I found that they were WAY WORSE than I was expecting. They weren't even enjoyable just as dumb movies. Between the horrid acting, writing, casting, plotline et all I almost quit watching TLJ halfway through in frustration.
    IT IS NOT A GOOD MOVIE, *PERIOD*

    Luke was actually messed over by The Force Awakens the Last Jedi had to work with a already ruined Luke story in some way no matter what they did Luke would not look good. When they decided to make Luke a failure with his Jedi School and then have him fail to help in the rest of the wars it made Luke a failure even before the Last Jedi started. Only possible good result was Luke finding some Jedi power that would turn the tide of the war and then being trapped there. Still not great him letting himself be trapped and then you have this Jedi super power that makes conflict in the next movie hard. So The Force Awakens did all the ruining producer of Last Jedi just had horrible task of showing how Luke failed. The mysteries in Force Awakens was on both movies the Force Awakens should not included things not intended to be shown in the next movie by the Story Group which has total control over the story. So I agree things were messed up I just disagree when they were messed up.
    Those attacking Ray's win in The Force Awakens just did not pay attention as she won over a man that should have been dead and thus severally weakened the attack on Ray's skill in the next movie more valid but she falling under the Darth Vader as a young kid prodigy rules both Aniken and Ray should not been able to do what they did in Ankin's case first movie in Ray's the second without prodigy powers. Anikin actually set the Ray example of someone untrained being great in Anikin's example a kid who never flew a starfighter taking out a enemy ship.

    Dude same problem you must have with TFA (or the mareysue awakens). Previous 6 movies created universe with his fundamental laws and rules, which can't be band or twisted, but TFA did it by creating literally everything in it with the villains out of JJ Abrams ass and ending with maREYsue, who can do EVERYTHING what can do super-long super-hard trained jedi masters, literally for 1-2 days! It's the same as if one medieval periods city smuggler, who's main job is to steal stuff and run, would be able to learn how to fight in the level of best trained Teutonic orders knights and beat their champion without even struggling in fu..in one day! Worst of all, they would call you woman hater if you point this out! They ruined all beloved characters, they ruined SW universe laws, rules and main setting for the sake of cheap political propaganda.
    p.s as a huge Prequel fan and SW:Clone Wars fun, I was glad that they made 7-8 installment this bad, because retarded haters who were hating for no reason the first 1-2-3 movies now cans wee what it is a bad movie and horrible SW movie and what they done, by forcing Lukas to sell his dream to evil mouse.

    This is why the expanded Universe was is so much better than anything Disney has done with the Franchise.
    Han becomes a general of the Republic.
    LEIA helps restore the Republic, learns to come to terms with her father being Vader and trains as a Jedi.
    Luke restores the Jedi as Yoda hoped-for. When Han's Son becomes Darth Cadeus Luke takes full responsibility.
    Cadeus is defeated by his Jedi sister.
    Han and LEIA despite now loosing 2x children remain very much in love and stronger in their marriage.
    Luke leads the Jedi against an extra galactic enemy immune to the force and nearly loose.
    It should be this point where Disney started their trilogy, new characters with cameo flashbacks to the previous generations. Drawing on their knowledge and wisdom to defeat the new threat.

    Bit late to the party but, meh, watching related youtube videos brings me back to Shadiversity here and there. So your points are good, but I'd just like to bring a single precision: StarKiller base wasn't built from scratch. It was literally built inside an existing planet. This means that most likely the effort to make it would basically be equivalent to one of the Death Stars. But, like, the rest of this video, I fully agree with!

    The First Order should have been Space ISIS - a small group of Dark side force sensitive users wreaking havoc guerilla warfare style across the galaxy on the New Republic and they call themselves The Knights of Ren. They should have been terrorists. Or what if they had been like a cult with Snoke as their “supreme leader” and they all follow him because he can use the Force and Snoke had built himself up as some kind of “prophet” or messiah or something. Easy ideas Disney, so many ways you could have taken this

    We could make the same argument against the new Star Trek movies... Enjoyable... but terrible in retrospect. JJ Abrams has succeeded in betraying the legacy and characters of two of the most beloved scifi cult franchises in history so he could use his parlor tricks for a quick buck. He is the one that set both of these balls rolling out of control. He held his own genius and his own creativity as more important than all the years of fan loyalty and all the body of creative work that led to the success of both franchises. He thought his own ideas could trump all that just because he was given the keys by a studio at a single moment in time. Star Trek fans have lost all their fraternity with each other ever since... and Star Wars is right behind it. If he never made another movie again it would be too soon.

    what strikes me most is that Han Solo gets killed, Luke gets killed, and the one who seems to play major role, dies naturally, causing a whole rewrite of the story. (TFA would ve been Solos movie, TLJ Luke;s movie en TRS Leia's ending the full story of 9 parts. i wonder how much they can salvage in the last part wich opens some new plotholes and questions if we look at the trailer. as Disney already confirmed to make 3 new star-wars movies with a full new story. If they continue the path of hiring crappy directers as Rian Johnson, it will be the end of Star Wars. even the Anthology line -up got killed with poor release of Solo with got its directors replaced mid production (and release within 6 months of crappy TLJ didnt do much good for the franchise either. the anthology of Ben Kenobi been canned cause of it, instead Disney will release a stand-alone series about a Mandalorian Bounty Hunter (not Boba as he would ve gotten his own anthology after Ben probably) wich would probably will only air on their soon to be released Disney-streaming service (as they aquired Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar etc)

    That's the sad thing. Star Wars is the only franchise at which a reboot is more or less impossible. But I concur completely. They should start again with episode 7 and forget 7 and 8 were ever made. And in doing this, maybe they could give episode 1-3 that treatment as well.

    So. Not saying that the resources used was.... Not well spent. But.
    They didn't make a deathstar big enough to be a planet. The hollowed out a planet to be a bigger deathstar. Now doesn't that sound so much less stupid. Like. Maybe just a little bit? Sort of?
    And then went and gave it the same weakness as the other smaller deathstars. But bigger.
    As to where they came from? Just because the guy in charge is dead doesn't mean the rest of them stop existing. That's where they came from.
    They do need to stop trying to build bigger deathstars though. You think they would have noticed how much they suck at that after the second one. Though they can't take all the blame for that one.
    Because how did no one notice them building that last one in the first place? Sure the universe is huge, but so is the ammount of resources needed to build that thing.

    I stopped caring about anything new star wars related, when I saw what Disney buying it was doing to the franchise. And the fact that they basically deleted the EU, and only cherry pick certain ideas from it and try to make it their own, that's just one of my biggest complaints. The oolder and original fans, (anyone from 80's till befire new sw) basically kicked in the groin, betrayed. After keeping the franchise alive. Newer sw was just made to appeal to 12 yr olds to sell toys and Disney tickets, with something every now and then added to try and attract older fans.

  • Mercurio Morat's Bughunting Channel

    @Shadiversity, You had me at "They [Hollywood] think their audiences are idiots" +42! This would be an excellent _post mortem_ for your writing videos.
    The death of Star Wars at the hands of Disney, is quite instructive in that, rather than revolving about the blatant sexism, which is projected by the portrayal of the main female protagonist as this hopelessly lost waif in search of someone to put her in her place, the thing that killed it boils down to this disconnect with sufficient "realism" for audiences to relate to the story.
    On Lightspeed ramming; based on Lorenz's equations this is not possible. Objects travelling at lightspeed, relative to one another cannot collide and can only pass through one another because one object, relative to the other, is infinitely thin in the direction of travel while its finite number of subatomic quanta are infinitely dispersed perpendicular to the direction of travel.
    Funnily enough, all this mathemagic boils down to the fact that, in practical terms, it is not possible for matter to be observed -or interacted with in any way- if that matter is moving at the speed of light relative to the observer.

    If lightspeed ramming was possible in the star wars universe, why not just make lightspeed ballistic missiles? Take a hyperdrive, add en navigationsystem that can be pre programed remotely, and add mass, like just a big chunk of tungsten or something, and fire it at your enemy! launching hard and high density projectiles with lightspeed at your enemies would make any close engagements in space obsolete.

  • TheVanclif

    After seeing SW VII I was so disappointed that I didn't even look at SW VIII.
    According to the original Lucas story, the empire has disintegrated into different splinter groups which were then pursued by the new republic. The Imperial remnants used the remains of the massive imperial fleet. The Republic also used old rebel ships, but also developed new ships like the Nebula Star Destroyer or the Strident Star Defender.
    Because the resources of the former empire now lay with the Republic.
    In Disney Wars, the First Order comes with new overpowering ships from nowhere and the new Republic, with a few exceptions, is still stuck in its old state. No development to see. Even the new fancy X-Wing are actually a step back when you look at A-Wing or E-Wing from the Lucas original.
    In the Lucas original Luke rebuilds the Jedi Order as the new Grand Master. In Disney Wars he falls into depression and hides...
    If Disney had filmed the continuation of the original story, it would have been much better than the preschool they have woven together there...

  • Marco Hansen
    Marco Hansen Month ago

    I personally liked The Last Jedi much better then The Force Awakens. But opinions differ of course. However let me go into some of the points you brought up:
    1. How does the first Order build all their stuff ?
    That is truly a big plot hole. Then again Kamino was somehow able to not only breed millions of Clone-Troopers but also equip them with blasters, armor, starfighters, land vehicles and giant starships. A single Planet did this (at least judging from what is seen in the movies). Either that or the republic had build a massive pile of equipment without crew for no reason.
    2. Rey did only get a weekend course of training.
    True. But it always felt to me that Luke didn't get any more training on Dagobah either before facing off Darth Vader. You mention that Luke trained months with Yoda... but when you compare the time Luke spends on Dagobah with whats going on at the time with the rest of the gang, well at least to me it feels more like a 3 day crash course at the most.

    3. The force is a macguffin device ?
    Yes, but it's always been that.
    In IV force users can feel each others presence, force choke and use the force to block blaster attacks and sway minds.
    In V force users can now move stuff via telekinesis, get visions and turn into visible force ghosts.
    In VI you can shoot lightning with the force, read surface thoughts and send/receive empathic messages.
    In I-III you can forcepush groups of enemies and use the force to resist poisonous gas,
    So in almost every new movie we got new force powers.
    4. Why isn't the First Order completely crippeld by the loss of Starkiller Base ?
    Well, why wasn't the empire crippled after the loss of the first Death Star ? Did the end of IV really look like the Empire only lost a base but would merrily go on tyrranizing the galaxy ? And how did the Empire ever manage to build something the size of a Death Star in secret ? (Same for the fleet that Kamino suddenly produced). Thats a lot of resources and manpower that went nearly or completely unnoticed...
    Again, of course just because this plothole existed before doesn't negate it.
    All your points are valid. But I find it odd that you (and many other people) choose to ignore those very same faults in the old movies.
    Odd tidbit: Many people seem to think that "actor XY doesn't like the movie / thinks it will fail" is a valid argument to prove that the movie is bad. Hint: Many people of the crew INCLUDING George Lucas were quite certain that IV would flop.

    I don't understand the hate for TLJ. This movie is soooooo bad its great! Force was just an unimaginative remake with some stupid ideas. TlJ is hilarious along with all these stupid point which are great you get to watch a 2D version of how a kid imagines space battle. Wasn't it fantastic when the medical frigate runs out of "fuel" and then "solar" wind causes it to like slow down and be destroyed! This is pure fucking gold, everyone gets butt hurt that his is not some iconic Star Wars classic.

    disney doesn't believe in putting enough effort into a movie that it would have intelligence and substance. seriously, this is how i feel about every live action movie they make these days. flashy lights, explosions, humor that cuts into any drama or earnest emotion the story might otherwise have, and only the barest, most pitiful pretext of substance. it's awful.
    i was so looking forward to rey's story. she was introduced as a wonderful character, embodying a pure optimism and hope that was all the more impactful because of the dismal circumstances of her life. i loved her in the first five minutes she was on screen. i even managed to genuinely like "the force awakens" in spite of all the plot stupidity because her personal arc resonated with me on such a deep level. but the last jedi was just atrocious. it had no idea what it was about, other than ruining not only the original trilogy but also any new question that "the force awakens" had presented. even rey's part of the story was a let down because she had no real faults or struggles to overcome. it's like captain marvel syndrome before captain marvel happened, just with a more likeable personality.
    i'll go see xi in the dollar theater, or maybe just redbox. or maybe i'll wait until it's free on prime. and the whole time i'll be mourning what this story could have been if somebody besides disney had tried to tell it.

    There was no real reason to make another Star Wars trilogy, especially set after the Original trilogy

    If they had to make another trilogy, it would have been much more interesting to be another prequel trilogy, showing the original founding and early history of the Jedi order, or the rise of Darth Plagueis.

    First and foremost: I utterly agree, Last Jedi nailed the coffin shut. Now, personally, I liked Force Awakens and the new characters that they put in it. Given what you said about Han, I can understand where you're coming from, so I'm not going to argue that point. The two things I didn't like about it are things I will definitely agree with you about. This movie was basically a remake of the original film, from the little droid with important info rolling around on a desert planet, to the same ships and costumes, to the giant planet-killing doomsday weapon. Aside from the characters, there wasn't anything new. The other thing is that there were twenty years worth of history summed up by a single sentence in the prologue: "the Imperial Remnants have come together to form the First Order" or something like that. No explanation on what the First Order is, what its territory is, why there's a Resistance fighting it while the New Republic just kind of sits back, when the clone troopers got replaced by janissaries, or why Luke's first lightsaber was in a basement in a bar. As for Last Jedi, they took everything they'd set up in the first movie and threw it out the window at ludicrous speed. Finn wakes up from a coma and immediately sets up a love triangle with unnecessary character Rose, which gets dumb when she tries to save his life by endangering literally everyone else's. The story is supposed to take place in a span of 6 hours and is broken into three or four separate stories spread all across the galaxy (I don't care how fast light speed is, that's just no). Lives at stake and Finn and Rose stop to talk about cruelty to animals and arms dealers supplying both sides of the war. Snoke is just there to die, no backstory or really anything and Ray is looking for her folks only to "learn" that they were child abandoning drug addicts. The whole thing was just sloppy and you're right, they should stop what they're doing and start over, just without Carrie Fisher RIP. About the only thing they did right was have Poe get stripped of his command following his reckless leadership of the bombing run.

    All story needs motivations for the characters actions.

    It’s almost like Rian Johnson has been a secret anti star wars fan since he was a kid and became a writer to destroy the franchise....

    There are no Star Wars sequels.
    Why? (You seem to say.) (- Hey!!)
    Because Star Wars ended after Empire ("Strikes Back"...
    ... bitch...)

    And it's LEEEa. -- not LAY ya.
    ... bitch.

    Han and Luke were both terribly undermined their ideologies and personalities, the main integral core of the characters. Their motivations were mutated into an entirely different person, stripping them of their entire character arc that's already occured. THEN, they give us a Mary Sue. So, the only way to save this franchise is to undo the first two movies. So, how do you undo everything? By giving us Snoke back as being backed by a 3rd evil source, his death not real (clone, force projection, et al.), make Rey's progression as a Jedi a joke (a sith shows her that she is a total joke by beating her easily), and have this 3rd party be the entity BOTH the rebel force AND First Order must fight against. Luke must reemerge as alive; Rey was the bait used by everyone, a pawn in a larger fight to come. And, the upstarts must lose in the end. Tragic, but Rey, Finn, and Poe dying would be ideal. Then, end with a final battle with Luke beating the Supreme Dark Force behind Snoke. Marrying, twins on the way with tbe closing credits, to complete the cycle. It wouldnt be perfect, or even better than average, but it would make these bad fanfic movies into something...reasonable.

    The Prequel films killed Star Wars, they were made soley to sell toys, super expensive commercials. the things you're complaining about in the Force Awakens and the Last Jedi, are all things that happened in the Original Trilogy, this universe doesn't have any structure, it never did, it's all been made up as it goes along, no plan.
    My advice is don't take them so seriously.

    Star Wars is not dead. It is dead for YOU. That's something entirely different.

    I always figured the First order was basically remnants of the empire that survived after the emperor's death and Snoke was able to unify them.
    The whole plot of Force Awakens was a mediocre retread of a New Hope, which I found underwhelming, but it was new Star Wars after a long time, so even though I was disappointed, I was willing to excuse it and just focus on the characters, plus I originally hoped that episode 8 would be good, especially after Rogue One came out, but well, Last Jedi sucked.
    Luke Force Projecting wasn't a huge deal, maybe he just felt he couldn't get there in time physically and took the only available method, but the other stuff I agree with

    TLJ fans: "TLJ is the best movie of all time!"
    Me: "Let's agree to disagree."
    TLJ fans: "You're just afraid of strong women!"
    Me: "You're a strong woman, correct?"
    TLJ fans: "Yes, of course. I'm far stronger than any inferior male that ever lived!"
    Me: "You're a strong woman, and I have no fear of you whatsoever."
    TLJ fans: .....
    And that ladies and gents, is how you defeat a TLJ fan!

    Me: "I don't personally think that The Last Jedi is the absolute best movie ever written, but I'm fine with it if you do."
    Last Jedi fans: "Go burn in hell, you sexist, racist motherfucker!"

    I don't get the idea of DS exhaust being a plot hole... Rebels had detailed schematics for DS, delivering plans to rebels was basicly the whole point of the movie. And i can guarantee you, if i gave you detailed schematics of USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78) and a few engineers to analyze them, you would find more than one easy way to take it out of commission. The problem would be getting in the position to execute one of those ways, but that's another story.

    You're right on every point you make here, but to me, Star Wars died with episodes 1 to 3.
