Not at all
I've been secretly liking him all along and basically knew everybody else is just memeing
Finally we can all agree Jar Jar was actually a well-rounded, multi-faceted, many-layered, three dimensional, deep character
>no fun allowed in my serious space opera with laser swords
Agreed. I think most of us have grown up moved past the point of just following the crowd on hating Jar Jar now, and when you take a step back, Jar Jar was actually one of the most original and likeable characters of the OT.
>1. You watch chink cartoons, you're not allowed to have an opinion.
Can you stop bullying me? Stop saying shit like that
It's comfy if you like moe, it's cool if you like shonen
It's alive and creative unlike Western anime which stagnates since decades
Some anime movies are so good they compete with the best live action movies
Saying it is creative makes me doubt, since everything about anime is either over the top action or cute girls doing cute things.
What the fuck were they thinking with his character design? Just unbelievable that someone somewhere thought he looked endearing.
It's the weird eyes sticking out of his head that make him so disgusting and offputting, I think. His entire character is just an abomination.
That being said, people who say TPM was awful because of him are wrong, he's just a smokescreen that hides the fatal flaws that were the complete lack of basic good story telling in TPM.
well, anyone reading this knows who the idiot is.
you obviously realise that the generic alien played by Pegg might as well have been a cardboard cutout so you have to respond in such a pathetic manner. Rather like a spoiled child, in fact.
mechanically, she give rey the lazer sword
thematically, she tells rey to stop dwelling in the past and look towards the future instead, which is kind of an overarching theme of the movie
>looka, meesa step on bantha poo doo!
Which did fit thematically, as the prequels were literally shit.
Maz is damn close to being a laughable Magical Negro trope
"The Magical Negro is a supporting stock character in American cinema who is portrayed as coming to the aid of a film's white protagonists. Magical Negro characters, who often possess special insight or mystical powers, have long been a tradition in American fiction.
Spike Lee, while discussing films with students at Washington State University and at Yale University, said he was dismayed at Hollywood's decision to continue using the premise; he noted that the films The Green Mile and The Legend of Bagger Vance used the "super-duper magical Negro".
Critics use the word "Negro" because it is considered archaic, and usually offensive, in modern English. This underlines their message that a "magical black character" who goes around selflessly helping white people is a throwback to stereotypes such as the "Sambo" or "noble savage"."
Mechanically, Rey could have received the saber from anyone or by chance. Thematically, we know absolutely nothing about Maz aside from Han's brief introduction yet she is erroneously characterized as some wise mentor despite never showing this to the audience. Furthermore, themes are carried out throught a work. Jar Jar was there in the beginning and end, Maz literqlly disappeared.
Nothing. It's surface level garbage masquerading as something grander than it actually is. It's about the same level of depth as the Star Wars prequels. Funny, you can usually tell that when a person enjoys one, they enjoy the other.
>a cruel taskmaster alien with a vague imperial connection that speaks little and holds sway over the locals in his junkyard
>a magical negro stereotype whose very voice is irritating and serves only to make poop jokes while trying to blind the audience to the fact that TPM's plot is a trainwreck
Greedy cruel, seemed pretty cold hearted. A life time of placing value on junk turned him into a bitter old man.
I bet everyone one if those lmao's were just waiting for him to die of space diabetes.
he was treacherous, as shown by the fact that he tried to steal BB8
he was greedy and stingy by the fact that he paid so little
probably had a cruel and vindictive streak too since he seemed to enjoy screwing rey over in a petty way
I don't know how other edits do it, but the Anti-Cheese version dubs over the lines they couldn't remove with alien language + English subtitles. It goes a long way. Not as good as if they had meant for it to be that way, but it's a good solution as far as making the movie less cancerous.
He speaks his own gunganbonics version of english
>yfw you realise Jar jar is a satire of the modern negro, clumsy, stupid and useless
some vague surface inferences
No-one has even tried the obvious rebuttal and told us the character's name or race.
He was a 'bad alien' who was a 'big meany' to Rey. amazing characterisation and imagination :)
no, he tried to BUY BB8.
Didn't even get off his ass and try to steal it. The cunt hardly moved a muscle in all those scenes
'man-in-rubber-suit' - but practical effects are the best right!
He was almost the best thing that happened to the series as a whole by far.
Unfortunately George Lucas chickened out and didn't make him into the best plot twist of all time that he was supposed to be.
Please, if you think the prequels are anything but shitty just watch them first and then the real deal. The movies have almost nothing incommon excluding the fucking POTTERY which is pretty cool.
>Please, if you think the prequels are anything but shitty just watch them first and then the real deal.
Nah. Originals weren't that good. You just have nostalgia goggles. Han Solo, Luke and Leia made for a fun adventuring party, but that was about all the appeal that the originals had.
>unlike Western anime
> Western anime
I think my biggest problem with Jar Jar is actually just that between his voice, his Jamaican-esque dialogue and the sound editing, it's really hard to hear what he's saying most of the time.
>If Jar Jar turned out to be evil and working with Palps, I've had an orgasm.
Honestly, It'll have redeemed the entire prequel trilogy in my eyes, even with the botched edits that gave jar jar a back seat in the second half of episode 2 and episode 3. They've left all the opportunity there for an unprecedented reveal in episode 8 or 9 and it'll be a crying shame if they don't make use of it then at the very least.
>there are people who actually unironically like the Darth Jar Jar joke theory
That JarJar's positive traits are devalued is not the fault of the film, or the character, but of those who fail to recognize them.
Quigon calls him brainless, and Jar Jar responds "I speak!" Quigon then snaps back that "the ability to speak does not make you intelligent." And of course, Quigon is totally wrong. Of course being capable of speech means intelligence - it goes straight back to the Turing Test imagery in A New Hope. Fans caught up in the Jedi ideology take what Quigon says at face value, and have simply accepted that JarJar is objectively subhuman.
The focus on JarJar's speech is crucial to the character, down to the 'random' gag where his tongue is paralyzed. See also the gag where Quigon grabs his tongue to chastise his intolerable behaviour. Jar Jar's various alien tics make him the perfect target for racism.
There's a great dynamic between JarJar and Quigon where he treats him with utter contempt. Jar Jar, for his part, is skeptical of the force - literally calling it bullshit at one point. And he's aware of the racism against his people, blaming it on fear of the Gungans' Grand Army - not so much that their army can threaten the Republic, of course, but that it demonstrates their resistance to assimilation into the liberal multiculture.
Jar Jar might be naive, but he's not callously indifferent like the others. When he gets tasered by a cop for no reason, he shouts "how rude!" - and that's also his response to learning that slaves are implanted with remote-detonation explosives to prevent escape. Calling it 'rude' is an understatement, but nobody else even blinks an eye.
With Quigon immediately established as a bullying racist at the start of the film, it's pretty clear what alien Darth Maul is getting revenge for.
>He was supposed to be but the fans hated him so much that Lucas pussied out and made Dooku the dark lord
The fans should all go commit collective suicide then over their terrible decision.
He could've been really cool, he's a pretty important character in episode 1. Just imagine that if instead of being a bumbling retard with the worst voice ever they made him a badass like this guy. Kids still would have liked it and the movie would be 100x better. Just a few simple changes would've made TPM really good.
>But what do the prequels have? Other than Jar Jar.
>If Darth Jar Jar had happened I would've given myself permission to enjoy the prequels while high.
I'm in the same boat as you. I just hope that that theory is true, because without it, the entire plot of the prequels is irredeemable shit.
superior animation than weeb shot here
SO MUCH THIS.
Whoever says Jar Jar is there "for the kids" or calls him a "comic relief character" is ignorant. JJ is there for the real audience, the samurai movies connoisseurs (the real Lucas target) and only a deep knowledge of this genre can lead to a proper appreciation of this underrted character.
tl;dr there's a Jar Jar in every samurai movie, Jar jar is actually a great character which evolves along the prequels and if you don't get it you're a pleb
>no Darth Jar Jar
>no OB-1 Kenobi
>no clone army of Jedi
Are the fans the the true villains of the prequels they ruined everything .
