George Walton Lucas Jr. was a genius.

Without him, the ''''''''Star Wars'''''''' motion pictures will now become like The Avengers, i.e. merely flicks.

The magic of Star Wars is dead. Weep.

Yes, you don't.

They don't just rhyme, but they also mirror. You notice that in a lot of these parallels characters are moving in, facing, or positioned opposite from each other. In most of the R2-D2 scenes he's facing one direction in the prequel version and facing the opposite in the other. Luke's speeder is moving towards the left while Anakin's is moving towards the right. The Chancellor Swings his chair to the left while the Emperor Swings his chair to the right. Anakin is always on the right when kissing Padme and Han is always on the left when kissing Leia.

As described in Mike Kilmo's Star Wars Ring Theory Article the prequels don't just parallel the Originals, but mirror them to create a circle. Their story runs in reverse from the Originals with Episode II pretty much Episode V in reverse. Whether you liked the Prequels, or not you can't question the amount of the thought and detail that went into their creation in respect to the Original Trilogy.

I respect what you're saying but the prequels are still shit tho.

You can read hardcore into literally anything to make them seem extra special and magical. Just stop.

Phantom Menace is a masterpiece compared to TFA. JJ is a hack and George truly a genius.

A billion films have done shit like this. It's nothing new or particularly clever. If you watched something other than blockbuster trash you would know this.
>>
>>64477599
this, TFA felt reddit as fuck, I didn't feel like I was watching Star Wars and the opening credits didn't fool me. It all felt too forced to resemble Star Wars but in reality, if Lucas isn't the director, it'll never be a genuine Star Wars film.

key words there
sure other films have mirrored themselves or another movie, but how many double trilogies did it? and with such consistency?
SW is alone in that ball park, no one can step to that feat
>>
>>64475661
Indeed he made many memorable scenes. Cantina, battle of yavin, battle of hoth, carbonite freezing of solo, the big reveal to luke, escape from jabba's palace, vaders redemption, battle with maul, battle at the arena, clones vs droids, obi-wan vs grevious, windu/yoda vs sidious, anakin becoming vader.

Yes I know it's too early to judge but the latest star wars has nothing memorable about it and I've seen it 3 times now (4 counting HD cam torrent). The only memorable moment was at the very end with luke (and that says quite a lot about the film), everything else is just generic plot points that could be found in any low budget sci fi flick these days.

Abrams is a fucking hack.

it's because of JJ's style
quick action means nothing really sticks to you. it's just a 5 minute little fight, cut to another scene of people clicking computer shit, cut back to some other shit, cut back to the battle for 2 minutes, cut to lasers in space

nothing lasts long enough for you to really give a shit. looks pretty thoug

>if Lucas isn't the director, it'll never be a genuine Star Wars film.

Irvin Kershner directed The Empire Strikes Back and Richard Marquand did Return of the Jedi
>>
>>64478069

That's Return of the Jedi, so it's mirroring all the other kids' CGI stuff in The Phantom Menace

>>64478174
this desu senpai

>>64478174
both were under the influence of Lucas. The script and direction would have to be approved by him as he saw fit.
>>
>>64478292
Nope
>>
>>64478292

This isn't true

Although I think Lucas did carefully mirror their shots in the originals.
