Species, robots, locations, it added a huge chunk tot he Star Wars lore for a reason.

Just because he fulfills those doesn't mean its written well. Its a fucking mess.

>>64487189
I can't say when I ever thought a character in a movie ever actually had such good reasons and motives to do something bad. Although the saving Padme with magic powers was of course kinda cheap.

Literally no chance they can give Ren motivations why he joined the dark side half as good, though.
>>
>>64487235
No, it's not. It's obvious you want to hate on the prequels just to hate on them, though. How about you visit some mainstream normalfag forum like NeoGAF or Reddit? Probably where you come from.

No it isn't you fuck. Some of the dialogue is crazy but his story is pretty damn clear.

They probably won't even give him any motivations and we'll never know why he joined the dark side. It already makes zero sense he adores Vader since Luke told him he was actually a good guy.

I can't seriously believe people are posting shit like this unironically.

TFA is mediocre, but to actually defend this pice of shit, CGI ridden, terribly paced, horribly written lore destroying prequels is absurd. I can't believe people are so defensive of JJ's liberal shittyness that they'd defend the movies that made the world realize how shit George Lucas was as a director.

/tv/ turned into a contrarian subreddit dedicated to shitting into any well received movies, and that will turn against anyone that doesn't agree with your absurdly sad nitpicking, like Mr Plinkett.

Holy shit. I've done it. I've actually lived long enough to see people go so completely contrarian, that they will perform whatever mental gymnastics neccessary to defend something SO objectively bad that it defies logic.

No, friends. The chemistry between Anakin and Obiwan wasn't that good. It had potential, I'll give you that. Too bad in third, climatic movie, they spend so much fucking time apart that it doesn't matter.

The pacing is never good. Phantom Menace is bogged down by Trade disputes, Adventures on Tatooine, and Naboo Politics (Maul Duel is pretty sick though). Attack of the Clones never picks up traction because of the terribly executed romance between anakin and padme. And Revenge of the Sith, while seemingly fast paced, is just a bunch of shit that happens in a poor attempt to connect the prequels to A New Hope.

And as for Anakin's motivation? You provided a nice list, but that's not what story telling is. It's not a list of things. It has to be weaved together, and George Lucas was clearly lost on this. It could have been so much better, and so much more simple. Dead Mom? Check. Feelings for Padme? Cool. But everything else they tried to shoehorn in their was just weird. The whole thing about resenting the Jedi because they won't give him the rank of master, and Sheev's vague promise to protect his wife from dream hinted death. It's just not enough to go on to suddenly kill Mace, swear your allegiance to the Sith, and murder children. It could have been much, much better -- and if nothing else -- we desereved that from the prequels. If EVERYTHING else was shit, but they pulled of Anakin's descent in a satisfying way, we'd all be more forgiving.

Ways to improve it? I don't get paid MILLIONS to produce movies, but I'll try if someone wants me to. This post is too long already.

That is the most generic fucking shit I've ever read and its not even new within Star Wars itself. I'm not 16, that's exactly why it didn't hit me at all.

Attempts at original design overall. This one and queens ship and mauls ship were sleek as fuck.
>>
>>64488005
Actually. You're right. You're wrong too. But you're right.

To clarify...

Prequels: Terribly written pieces of shit that had a lot of new stuff in it, even though the new stuff was terrible.

TFA: Very safe, but solidly made movie, but so generic that is basically IS A New Hope, while introducing a new cast of characters for us to attach to.

I rather take the generic, but good movie -- than the TERRIBLE, "oh, well, Pod Racing is unique, isn't it?" movies.

>>64488058
>Space battles
The space battles in the prequels sucked dick. They were more about splosions and shiny things than anything else.
>>
episodes 1-3
>>
>>64486572
>Phantom Menace
Qui-Gon Jinn. Maul. Naboo (the underwater city and the palace). Duel of Fates. The ending fight. Podracing was dumb fun. In fact, "dumb fun" is a good description of the film.

>Attack of the Clones
Anakin. Kenobi. The Clone Trooper twist (most people assumed the clones were bad guys). That arena fight sequence (from Anakin/Kenobi/Padme fighting it out on their own, to the big fight with all the Jedis, to the clone troopers joining in). Kenobi/Anakin vs Dooku.

>Revenge of the Sith
Palpatine. Watching Anakin seduced by the Dark Side only to eventually succumb to it. The opening battle. Anakin killing Dooku because Palpatine said. The final duel with Anakin and Kenobi.

The prequels are pretty good films. Hating them is just a bunch of bunk.

>>64488142
Nah, I have to disagree.

Young Obiwan is cool. Sheev is just a meme, but he acts it out well enough. And I like Anakin, but I know his dialogue and scenes are mostly cringe worthy. Maul was neat for a fight scene or two.

TFA -- Poe and Finn are bro tier. BB8 is the most charasamtic fucking rolly ball in the universe. Kylo did a better job being Anakin, than anakin did. And Rey, Phasma, and Space Hitler were hit and miss, but still not cringe worthy.

>I..I.. I swear I'm not 16!
Kek, a bit defensive are we? It's not about the ideas it's how they're executed which is something the prequels lack. Interesting ideas that are executed horribly, you don't get props for that.

Darth maul fight was good, and the song, soo good, but thats it.

>Episode 2

Eh I guess Anakin going crazy and killing all those raiders? I mean the fights were ok. I did like the bounty hunter scene. Not a big fan of this one. Least favorite star wars.

>Episode 3

Best one I think.

Palpatine was amazing, the fight at the end, and seeing Anakin go crazy was pretty good. Also the tie up.

Or between a winner and a loser? I'm not trying to be a dick, just hear me out.

I play basketball. It's fun, fast paced, I like it. Whatever. Not the point.

Prequels: A fancy behind the back lay up that would have been awesome if you made it, but just was so poorly executed that it clanks off the rim, flies off court and hits your coach in the face.

The Force Awakens: A nice pass to an open man, who makes a jump shot effortlessly. Nobody is hooting and hollering over the play, but you made the shot, and you win the game.

Ya dig? And yes, The prequels have redeeming qualities. Just like a fancy missed lay up that hits your coach in the face. That shit is funny to watch, and a little bit impressive in its own way.

You still suck at basketball if you take that shot though, as oppossed to taking the easy jumper.

>literal Mary Sue
>garbage one-liner humor pulled straight from marvel movies
>blatant fanservice
>A New Hope 2.0 storyline

The prequels had great settings, original stories, and deep characters, but was ruined by shitty directing and dialogue.

TFA is the exact opposite, it has amazing directing, but fails in that the settings, story, and characters lack depth and plausible motivations.

I hope that episodes 8 & 9 can salvage this shitstorm by fleshing out Rey and Kylo, but i doubt that disney will take the risks necessary to create compelling arcs for the both of them.

It's funny how people say prequels have aged badly. Ok, some scenes like the battle of naboo did, but you see architects making renders worse than this one nowadays.

Let me help you with analogy.

You have two engineers. Their boss comes to them and shows them a conventional Go-Kart.

"This Go-Kart can move you from point A to point B at 15 mph. I want a new improved Go-Kart that can move faster."

Engineer 1 creates a Go-Kart that can hit 30 mph at times but can't figure out a way to work out a problem where the engine stalls after 30 minutes of use.

Engineer 2 takes the old Go-Kart, replicates it, adds a shiny new coat of paint, and submits it to his boss.

Which engineer do you think the boss will be happier with?

If you're going to make a new Star Wars,

MAKE A NEW FUCKING STAR WARS
>>
>>64487690
You have good points on pacing, character chemistry, and pacing.

However, I think you're missing the fact that Anakin literally saw the flaws and hypocrisies of the Jedi in front of his eyes. You're right, he didn't turn to the dark side because of that list of things mentioned in>>64487189 ,he instead turned because he saw the Jedi betray him and his friends/love interests. He wanted to protect them(probably due to his nightmares of them suffering), and saw the Jedi as preventing him from doing so.
>>
>>64489250
>>64489250
I think I agree with you, but I don't think TFA FAILS at setting, story and characters. I just think it's mediocre. While prequels certainly FAIL at a great many things, and don't even reach mediocrity.
>>
>>64489468
since the movie released. Everyone knows /pol/ got btfo. Finn was charming and well acted as fuck.
>>
>>64489529
I'm almost with you. But the problem with analogies is poetic liscence.

I was being objectively fair with mine. You were being way too generous to the prequels -- though, pretty fair to TFA.

The prequels never hit 30 mph, but only stalls after 30 minutes. It hits 20 at maximum, and then the engine fucking explodes, catching fire, and killing the driver.
>>

>>
>>64489701

Bullshit. The overarching story is fine. There are cool worlds, scenes, characters, etc. that are fleshed out and explained

the main thing holding it back are details, execution, overuse of CGI

I rewatched them recently and enjoyed them enough, only getting annoyed by shit like Jar Jar, Anakin's acting in AotC, etc.

You are implying Disney did their job with TFA. They did not. An enormous, rich up to their balls, creative production house rehashed Episodes 4-6 with shiny new tech, a muddled and hamfisted story, and shipped it out as a bona fide new sequel. It will always have the name "VII" next to it. That's criminal to me.
>>
>>64489454
>If you consider shitty greenscreen cgi great settings sure.
Every planet that they visit in the prequels, even in episode 1 alone, each have fleshed out personalities different form other planets. Different unique arcitechure, different forms of government, different species.

Just because the "shitty greenscreen cgi" is the only technology available at the time of filming they could use to show these grand setting while remaining in budget, does not make the settings bad. The cgi is pretty good for the time desu.

>Original =/= good
Its still better than A New Hope 2.0

>Literally WHO! This is quite possibly the worst post on 4chan right now
The relationship between Anakin and Obi-wan is an incredibly deep one ruined by cheesy dialogue.

Just like the relationship between Anakin and Padme is a great demonstration of Anakins flaws as a character ruined by cheesy dialougue.

>>64489834
But see, what you're failing to realize is that the prequels were SO bad, that Disney had to play it "safe".

They were that bad dude, they were. How old are you? I'm 30. So, old enough to remember the HYPE around Phantom Menace. Man, people were fucking excited. NEW STAR WARS? DARTH MAUL, FUCK YEAH! OMG DUEL OF THE FATES. OMG STAR WARS MUSIC VIDEO ON TRL (no lie... http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xn7ldo_star-wars-episode-1-the-phantom-menace-duel-of-the-fates-music-video_shortfilms)

We all wanted to like the film. But it was bad. And even as a teenager, I was like, "Shit, these movies are bad."

So when Episode VII and all these movies were announced, what did level headed consumers like me do? "OH COOL STAR WARS!.... wait... wait. Oh, fuck. Please, don't be shit. Is it shit? Better not be shit. Fuck its gonna be shit."

They had to tell a conventional story just to get the fanbase to not revolt. Could the franchise survive another cluster fuck? Maybe, it is star wars after all.

I do hope the next movie takes more risks with its story telling now that is has been established, "No folks, these are going to be better than the prequels, don't worry"
>>
>>64490096
Ummm. Sorry, but I agree with other guy. Maybe you should try "Artist" instead of "Engineer". As an engineer, shit needs to work. Not explode.
>>
>>64489885
Why the fuck didn't they use more practical effects that look better, age better and in general are a great tool that CGI should compliment. Don't ever try and defend it again.

>Still better than A New Hope 2.0
Lmao not at all, Star Wars is Good vs Evil not squabbling about trade routes and disputes, at least the motivations are clear in TFA.

>Relationship between Anakin and Obi Wan is incredibly deep
lol no, stopped reading there, you obviously have no idea what you're talking about. You're essentially saying the things the characters do and say don't matter because you have some weird headcanon that says otherwise. Anakin and Obi Wan literally never do any bro things and just always seem angry or annoyed at each other.
>>
>>64490096
>Get a job sometime
So you're saying if you were a boss and you had to choose between a go kart that doesn't work and one that does work, you'd go for the one that doesn't work? You're a fucking idiot

>>
>>64490098

Disney had the laundry list of issues to avoid, as well as an enormous creative team. I can't believe you're making excuses for a multi-billion dollar company that was willing to take a risk on some fucking mickey mouse ass shit like "John Carter" and then you're going to give it an excuse for being completely lazy and complacent on Star Wars. What kind of fucking fan can stand that? They are literally marvelizing this series before our eyes and you can't help but sit there, clap, cry, and extol them for "not being the prequels at least." I'm going to be honest, I can enjoy casual movies but in the context of this series, their investment, what they could have done, it's pretty sickening. And it's sickening to see so many people giving them high marks and a pat on the back for it. You think they're going to take risks now? Oh, you bet they won't. Good job.

>Star Wars is Good vs Evil not squabbling about trade routes and disputes
Star Wars is a kids movie. At the end of the day, going to "a long time ago in a galaxy far far away" and discovering new places, new conflicts, and new characters, is just as much a part of star wars as the battle between good and evil. TFA fails to have any sense of discovery whatsoever by offering a rehashed plot with cliche, depthless characters. Its like making a BLT without lettuce.

Anakins relationship with padme exists to show that Anakin needs someone in his life to ground him to reality. As soon as his mother isn't there to be the driving motivation for everything he does, he immediately falls in love with another motherly figure. Notice how all Anakin talks about on tatooine is freeing his mother. Anakin realizes that without anybody to love, he would have no reason to live. Sheev takes advantage of this, and threatens Anakin with the thought that he might lose padme. When Anakin finally does lose padme, he loses a part of himself. He becomes an empty shell of his former self until he finds someone else that he can life his life for, his own son.

The problem is that shitty dialougue ruins this relationship for retards like you that can't look any deeper than the hottest new meme.

>Are you an angel?
>i don't like sand

The prequels are filled with examples of bad dialogue ruining the deeper meaning of the story.

>>64491168

I literally do not see how this is hard to understand. I deliberately chose a very basic example with a simple specification in order to make it easy to follow when I could have been far more complicated.

The boss asked for one thing: make this Kart (that I already have, it's a perfectly fine Kart) go faster.

That's it. I want a different Kart.

Engineer 1 TRIES to fulfill the spec. He gets somewhere with it, a faster Kart, but it is less reliable than the old one. He did his job in attempting, earned his paycheck, and while the Kart has its faults and isn't a total solution it can be used in certain cases and expanded upon.

Engineer 2 was a lazy fuck who took all of his bosses money and pushed out basically the same thing with a new paint job.

You don't have a valid criticism. It's as close as a simple analogy can get. Of course there are minutiae that leave something left to be desired but, again, a simple analogy, it's supposed to be basic.

I paid more money, and spent more time eagerly waiting, for the same thing. A same thing that Disney marketed as a new thing. I don't consider that more forgivable than an honest attempt at a new thing that goes awry.

Yeah not, your analogy is shit. Lets assume the boss is the audience, they already have a very fast and well built kart. George Lucas decides to try and make a better kart than the first one (OT) and ends up creating what is essentially one of those vans that suicide bombers use to deliver a large payload. Pretty spectacular but for all the wrong reasons. JJ Abrams comes in and we're reeling from the suicide van so he decides to go back to the simpler design that the boss likes with a few tweaks and enhancements with lots of room for custom upgrades.

That's the analogy you're looking for

And in this case its more like he made like 75% of all the car parts, threw them into a bag and shipped it to customers. So customers thought REALLY hard to construct this car into a single thing only to realize that a lots of parts are reused from other cars, some parts don't even fit with the rest of the car, and you can't really drive it since it has neither engine nor fuel. And dealer said that if you pay double we are promising that the car you bought MIGHT actually be drivable.

the goals of TFA are to draw in as many fans as possible.

It does this by pandering to nostalgiafags, and having a character to represent as many different demographics of people as possible. Its nothing more than a commercial for the next 12 star wars movies.

sorry to bring /v/ into this, but this movie is what everyone didn't want Star Wars Battlefront to be, which was a generic fps game with a star wars skin. This is nothing more than generic hollywood drivel we have been getting every year since Iron Man 1 came out, just with a Star Wars skin on top.

Honestly if Lucas didn't direct them the prequels probably would have been great

If it wasn't for the prequels we would never have gotten this video

The dialogue and the line delivery by the actors who had to act in front of a green screen 99% of the time were awful.

They were better than the original trilogy, if they came out first everyone would agree with me.

I mean how are you supposed to enjoy a movie when you know everything beforehand.
Anakin(kind of) survives
Obi Wan survives
Yoda survives
Sheev survives
Padme is going to survive long enough to give birth to Luke and Leia
3CPO and R2D2 will ''survive''.

Everyone who gets in the way of one of this characters is guaranteed to die.

>casting

Probably the most horribly cast movies I've seen. There's Hayden for starters. And then all the minimum wage minor characters. The main baddie from the first movie was played by a stunt guy. I can't think if more than 3 well cast characters who weren't already in the OT

And don't say Dooku, Lee is a meme actor through and through

The music

several of the action set pieces, especially pod racing

Ewan McDonald as young Obi Wan

several great video games based around it

Tartakovsky's excellent animated series and the also good 3D animated series

I was reading the visual dictionaries the other day and I really appreciate all the lore it added to the saga. They're not good movies, but I appreciate a good amount of what they brought to the table if that makes any sense.

If your movie is ruined by people knowing whether or not characters are going to survive, it's a shit movie.

Lets assume this is all true.

Well this is the same thing that happened to the prequels.

The sense of adventure is pretty much dead.

>>64496646
How does watching them in a different way make them bad?
>>
>>64488234

>a fan

You see, there's your problem. "Fans" of genre fiction almost always have exceptionally poor critical thinking abilities, not to mention taste. They're so wrapped up in "muh lore" that they are incapable of paying attention to what's delivered on screen.

Nobody fucking cares how much the prequels added to the Star Wars universe you fucking nerd. They're still shit movies.
>>
>>64496831
Because the surprise and sense of adventure are big parts of why the originals were so good/loved i'd say.
>>
>>64496939

They're making these movies (supposedly) "for the fans" you fuck.

Take your pretense elsewhere
>>
>>64486572
I really enjoy the music, I dare say a lot of it is better then the original trilogy and miles ahead of what Force Awakens had for music. I also really love The Clone Wars CGI show, it was really good and I use it to substitute for the prequel trilogy. The issue with the Prequels is it was really not a story that needed to be told or could be told in only 3 films. Wish all of the prequel story was contained into a show but oh well.

So have you never rewatched the originals after the first time?

>>64495995

>seriously trying to defend watching for the plot
>>
>>64486572

This guy. Say what you want, but Ian McDiarmid put 120% into playing Sidious no fucking holds barred. He was more into his character than anyone else in the Star Wars movies ever was (maybe even to a fault).

The opera scene added so much mystery to the Sith; even more so when you consider that the entire story could've been a lie because...well, Sith.

There was some kind of original storyline behind it. It was shit but at least it was original.
>>
>>64497176
Sure i did, but it was nothing compared to the first time i saw them.

I'd say the same is true for every movie.
>>
>>64497904
So to reiterate, if your movie is no longer worth watching if you know what characters will survive, it's a shit movie.

>>64497994
It will make it worse yes.

Fucking reddit memeshit faggots

The art direction in TPM was great. Naboo looked fantastic. Had good music too. So there's that at the very least.
>>
>>64486572
The sheev memes and the plinkett reviews are the only good things we got from the prequels.
>>
>>64490026
This doesn't work for me because we know too much about Kylo already.

We didn't need Vader's or Sheev's or Dooku's or Snoke's motivations because everything about those characters is a mystery. We already know he was raised by Leia, Han and Luke, three light side heroes, and idolizes Vader, who turned good and defeated the Empire at the end and that he "feels the pull of the light". I find it hard to believe Leia, Han and Luke could raise a kid to be so rotten, and I honestly can't believe Luke would keep his father's redemption a secret. And why would he turn in the first place if his natural inclination was toward the light? What little we know about Kylo doesn't really support him turning to the dark side, so it creates a dissonance at least to me.

The feel of Naboo was ripped from James Gurney paintings

1. Cool ship designs clearly inspired by the original but still being distinctive
2. Sheev
>>
The way it formed a chiastic structure in conjunction with the original trilogy, and reinforced that through calculated inversions and allusions narratively, thematically and even compositionally. For all his failings, Lucas has always had an incredibly strong grasp of filmmaking language and has proven himself a truly gifted storyteller, despite his utter inability to write consistent dialogue.

Also, Ewan McGregor is really good in all three of them.

Even things like Empire at War, which is essentially about the OT would not have been possible without the prequels.
