    SF1_freeze got a reaction from Edmilson in Villeneuve's DUNE   
    I don't know, i was disappointed about the visual aspects.
     
    Visually it looks somehow bland and boring, devoid of any colour and wonder.
     
    The set design is also far too ancient/stoney looking, like a medieval film. I mean look at that boring library set or the establishing shot of the atreides home base, that looks like a generic medieval castle or even a temple ruin.
     
    I really miss a sense of wonder and awe which is something i expect from a science fiction film which takes place in outer space and on different planets.

    TLJ was even a more glorified Rebellion 2.0 vs Empire 2.0. The New Republic plothole was ignored instead of fixed. 
    And we are made to believe that 2000 people are a menace for the First Order instead of the rest of the Galaxy who didnt even appear apart from Casino City. Sure its because of the TFA plotholes that made our heroes easily destroy starkiller base...the lifework of the First Order... our Deathstar 3.0 where Captain Phasma on gunpoint deactivated the whole Starkiller Base SHIELD just to save her life... she alone could and would do that... ridiculous

    People like you are the reason Hollywood got lazy and stopped caring to write scripts without a myriad of plotholes. For people like you the superficial entertainment is enough, films dont have to make sense even within their own franchise.
    Its a sad time for cinema....

    How does that make any sense? Bloodlines is a sad try by the Lucasfilm Story Group to somehow try to damage control this trainwreck of a story and find any explanation at all for the stupid starkiller shot onto the New Republic Starsystem.
    It still makes zero sense.
     
    No sane people would station their whole fleet only in one system when there are 1000s of worlds in the galaxy!!!
    No government could work and function for 1000s of worlds when all military and governmental power is concentrated on only 3 planets. (its such a joke plotwise in TFA)
    This cant ever be explained at all because it doesnt make any sense. If you have any clue about politics and how the world works you realize that, no matter how many books by Lucasfilm try to fix that....

    I mean WTF are you talking about? What could be more lazy and more brainless than to make films with a Rebellion 2.0 against Empire 2.0 when the Rebellion has ALREADY WON THE WAR and is in control of the galaxy as the NEW REPUBLIC.
     
    Now how does it make any sense that the New Republic is wiped out including their fleet when one star system gets destroyed. WTF???
    The galaxy has 1000s of worlds and the ruling party only has military and control over 3 planets....its like it was written by a 3 year old kindergarten kid
     
    Then you have 2000 people called the Resistance who are a fucking joke in terms of military force and nobody ever explains why the First Order or the New Republic even care about this little splinter group. One First Order Star Destroyer has more people than the whole Resistance and we are made to believe that they are a menace for the First Order?
     
    It all makes no fucking sense unless you follow the logic of 3 year old kids...thats why many fans are insulted
     
    Demodex, i almost envy you that you can switch off your brain so much during watching to not see nor realize all this lazy ass shit.

    TLJ and to smaller extent TFA are lazy brainless entertainment, because they make absolutely no sense plotwise within the Starwars Saga and Universe.
     
    People like you seem to switch off their brains and dont think about backstory, the world making sense, character motivations and worldbuilding within a franchise in general.
     
    But there are lots of people who care about these things, who dont want brainless stupid popcorn entertainment with a myriad of plot holes because the writers are lazy as ass which in turn now  leads to 2 franchise films that contradict the other 6 franchise films.
    Thats how you anger a fanbase!

    You come across as the kind of guy who likes brainless popcorn entertainment and don't want to think deeper about the background , the world and the motives of the story and its characters.
     
    Is it really ok for you if a film does not to make any sense within a franchise as long as you are entertained???
     
    Last Jedi is hated by so many fans because it makes absolutely no sense storywise within the Starwars Saga. Its a parody.

    Interesting post i read that i want to share here, which shows the stupidness of the whole backstory of the sequel trilogy:
     
    The politics of the sequels is so puzzling. First it's so vague and unhelpful for creating context during the movie, then they use books to fill in the details, but the movie has established details that are so dumb that the book explanations end up completely contradictory...
     
    Here, follow this 'logic':
    Q: So why didn't the New Republic want to take on the First Order themselves? Why are the Resistance on their own?
    A: Well acting directly would destabilize the galaxy and start a shooting war. They were in a Cold War type situation that could easily slip into a conflict that would cost billions of lives.
    Q: Oh, wow, sounds intense. So the NR must have been stockpiling weapons and constantly monitoring the FO in case the bad guys decided to nuke them or do some Pearl Harbour thing, right?
    A: No, the NR planets were afraid of the central government turning into a new empire like what happened under Palpatine, so they decided to disarm down to just a defense fleet so the individual planets couldn't be dominated by a single central force.
    Q: Oh, so I guess they split up the command of the armed forces then? And stationed the ships at different points around the galaxy so that the whole military couldn't go rogue all at once? And the individual planets had their own national guard type forces under their own command?
    A: Oh no, none of the individual planets had military. And the NR put the whole fleet around the central government planet under central command and-
    Q: But you just said they were afraid of a dominant central government!
    A: ...and then the FO Pearl Harbored them. With nukes. And wiped out all the NR's military power. Which was conveniently stationed around the central government. Even though the people didn't want them to have all the military power.
    Q: ...fuck you.

    My package arrived today. I was among the first few orders and was very lucky that customs procedure went fast.
    Last year the Jurassic Box arrived in January and was stuck in customs for over 3 weeks.
    Seems to be a bit of a lottery.

    Not all people are emotionless saints, who never express their disappointment in a more extrovert way.
    Better leave the forum world if you can't take something like that.
     
    If someone looks forward to one theme that for this person was the best theme in this franchise and also the main theme of its main character and this theme doesn't appear at all there is every right to overreact!
     
    I mean imagine RotJ dismissing the Imperial March and returning to the Imperial Motif and Death Star motif because the Empire is well represented with two thematic ideas already... wouldn't that also be a reason to overreact

    I just reacted to the insulting post John made towards Mattris.
    Someone has to, if the majority on this thread seems to not care anymore or even support such a behaviour.
     
    And i bow to you Mattris, its a pleasure to read your well thought out and well articulated discussion points and arguments. And all that in the face of massive opposition and even nastiness by some posters in this thread.

    This is absolutely serious.
    Most Starwars fans i know (me included) think mostly the same like Mattris and are extremely dissapointed after TLJ.  
     
    But there is this also vocal other side of the fandom who seem to wear their pink Mickey Mouse glasses and consider everything Disney-Lucasfilm does pure gold... to each their own i guess
     
    The facts of Starwars in decline speak for themselves!

    Mattris is absolutely right in most of his points. 
    What you just posted is not only insulting, it's exactly the thing you criticise.
     
    It seems you got no arguments left, you lost the discussion against the excellent points Mattris brought up and now you are like a whiny kid who can't accept that.

    The article's writer says that "Disney has recouped its investment" but fails to mention...
     
    ... the specific production and marketing costs of each film.
    ... the revenue figures from the "dozens of other Star Wars revenue streams"  (merchandise sales figures, licensing agreements, other forms of media, etc.)
    ... the massive cost of the "two Star Wars Lands under construction".
    ... that Disney doesn't receive all of the revenue from box office receipts. When all is said and done, it's safe to say they received around 60% of it.
     
    That article did not prove that Disney has recouped its investment in Lucasfilm.
     
    Mr. Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore, said that "Solo still made a lot of money," and that "By any other measure Solo was a success, but in the realm of 'Star Wars' anything less than a grand slam home run is seen as a disappointment. So [that film] was held to a higher standard, no question, but that's because of how well the films have done even before Disney."
     
    Mr. Dergarabedian is a spin doctor. Solo did not make "a lot of money". THE FILM LOST $200 MILLION DOLLARS. By any measure that matters, this is "seen as a disappointment". Solo's financial failure was an utter embarrassment for Kathleen Kennedy, who recently received a contract extension from Bob Iger... who took the blame for Solo's failure, citing "too much, too soon". Though he must be aware that the film's disastrous cinematic run (and financial decline with the other films*) is indicative of a major problem that fans and the general public have with what Disney Star Wars has turned out to be.
     
    I never said that "Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm has been a total disaster on all fronts". It's their handling of Star Wars that has resulted in "total disaster" regarding public interest in the franchise.
     
    * TLJ made 1/3 less at the box office than TFA. Solo made 2/3 less than Rogue One, which made 1/2 that of TFA.
