What are your thoughts on Mace Windu?

>>64527516
He's black
>>
>>64527516
Poorly casted and totally arbitrary, yet still manages to be kind of neat because he introduced purple lightsabers, AKA the best lightsabers.

Samuel L. Jackson should've been a badass angry motherfucking Sith. That would've been a good idea. Cast Freeman as Mace and he'd do a much better job.
>>
Waste of Sam Jackson's acting skills.

He's a nigger

Love SLJ but he was poorly casted and he didn't get that much of a role I agree with the fact that he should have either been a loud evil Sith or a angry assassin

>>64527516
If Lucas wanted Samuel L. Jackson in his movies, which I perfectly understand, he should have invented a better character for him. I like this actor, but I do not really buy him as a wise not!asian monk.

In the end, you just have Samuel L. Jackson travelling to the SW universe and having adventures there. Which is far from the worst thing in the movies, but it's just not right.

>>64527703
Never though about it, but Freeman as Windu is actually a nice idea.
>>
>>64527516
Sam Jackson can act, so, his character was actually pretty based. Unlike that stammering fuck Boyega. I felt like I was being mocked the whole time Boyega was on screeen.

He's a reactionary asshole that thought he could just run the republic himself. Lets say Anakin let him kill Sheev. Guess who becomes the new emperor? Windu. Yoda warned him about that shit.

He's the only man to fuck Sheev up on equel terms.

Samuel L Jackson does best in roles where he can be angry and loud. Who are the angriest and loudest in the Star Wars universe? Sith, you fucking mongoloid.

There's about a million other black actors out there that could have done the role better. Calm and collected Samuel is not.

Yeah, Windu was the epitome of everything that was wrong with the old Jedi Order. He was a militaristic douchebag who basically saw the Jedi and the Republic as synonymous, to the detriment of both. Between his absolutist black and white worldview, his use of anger as a weapon in battles, his tendency to solve problems with force, and his willingness to seize political power "for the greater good", he really seems more like a Sith than a Jedi.

He actually makes a very good foil to Yoda: while Yoda was the Jedi Master who realized the error of the Order's ways and changed his views to adapt, Mace was the one who stubbornly clung to his old ways to the bitter end, and ended up dying an ignominious death for it.

He's actually a really interesting character in that light. I mean, I think he was a total asshole, but I'm pretty sure that was Lucas' intent.
>>
>>64532777

The prequels had some really good character set ups and storylines

I wish they'd had an effective director to actually make them work and make more sense on screen
>>
>>64532777
>he was a total asshole, but I'm pretty sure that was Lucas' intent.

Definitely. It's especially obvious upon being introduced to the character in the Phantom Menace. But I wouldn't say asshole, more like he's well aware of his power
>>
>>64532730
It's a hairdon't lmfao
>>
>>64532851

I think arrogant's a better word
>>
>>64527516
Considering he's the one Jedi who utilizes the dark side successfully, I'd say it's a pretty great choice. Someone like Jackson who's always seething with emotion under the surface was fantastic.

He actually reminds me, of all things, of Victoria Hand on Agents of SHIELD. Like Victoria, he's basically there to be a living embodiment of everything wrong with the way his institution currently works, thus showing how that institution came so close to total destruction and why it desperately needs to change. And like Victoria, just about every goddamn decision he makes is bone-headedly wrong. Hell, they even both end up getting betrayed and killed by someone they thought they could trust, right when they believed they had the main villain contained.

Ultimately, the dude made the mistake of trying to out-Sith the Sith, he was doomed from the start.
>>
>>64527516
A SHIT LORD?
>>
>>64532777
>who basically saw the Jedi and the Republic as synonymous
but... that's been largely true for most of their history. The Jedi have always been protectors of the Republic. At worst, they distanced themselves because they didn't like the direction things were going, but they always come back to try and set things right.
>>
>>64533248
Wait... do you mean to imply that people actually watch Agents of Shield?
>>
>>64533331
I don't know, I got the impression that the Jedi basically being government goons was a bad thing, especially since that's ultimately what led to their destruction and Palpatine's rise to power. And in both the old EU and the new Disney continuity, Luke's new Jedi Order seems to be way less centralized and bureaucratic.
>>
>>64533331

They became too tightly coupled, especially with assuming command of the Clones and becoming the de facto "generals" of the Republic, and not merely the Guard, that it perverted their principles and gave way to the possibility of coup

which Windu appeared prepared to do after he decided the Senate couldn't manage themselves anymore

<Hell, they even both end up getting betrayed and killed by someone they thought they could trust

Windu never trusted Anakin, though. One could say that he was Anakin's main slanderer in the council, even when the fact that he was not prepared was a more general consensus. He constantly show this distrust and specially when Anakin tells him about Sheev. I'll go as far as saying that, if Windu had allowed Anakin to come with him to arrest the Chancellor, the jedi could have won. Instead, Windu just said "I'll trust you if it's true, but go and wait in the council chamber".

That's a good example of wrong decision like you mentioned, by the way.
>>
i think he does too many commercials, not a fan
>>
>>64532777
>Between his absolutist black and white worldview
I see what you did there.
>>
>>64533586
Regardless of what would actually happen, Windu's plan was to assassinate Sheev and *directly* take control of the Senate by force of arms. He explicitly says so in the movie, and ignores Yoda's warnings to the contrary.

It was all supposed to be temporary, of course, but that was the same thing Palpatine said about his emergency powers. (Granted, unlike Palpatine, Mace genuinely meant it when he said it, but in practice I doubt he would've relinquished power all that quickly.)
>>
>>64528844
HE IS THE TRAITOR, AGHHHHH!
>>
>>64527516
Left no impression whatsoever, like the prequels in their entirety.
>>
>>64531089
Except he was nothing like that as Mace you fucking retard. That was the problem.
>>
>>64533744
Huh, what movie was this said? I know they would confront Sheev if he didn't surrender emergency powers after the war, don't recall them taking control of the Senate.
>>
>>64533905
All in the third, you two are saying basically the same with different words.
>>
Dennis
>>
>>64533744
>Windu's plan was to assassinate Sheev
What? He was just going to arrest him and even then only if he didn't surrender his emergency powers like he said he would.
>>
>>64533905
He specified that the Jedi would take control of the Senate until the time of crisis had passed - which is the exact logic Palpatine used to get the emergency powers that Mace was so opposed to him having.

>>64534072
My mistake, you're right about that part.
>>
>>64531089
Did you actually watch the movies or did you just decide "the prequels suck because internet memes told me so, I'll just shitpost about them instead"
>>
>>64527516
Wasted potential: the Jedi
>>
>>64533455
Jedi were destroyed because they got too complacent. It's why Yoda couldn't beat Sheev, even though he should've wrecked him with all his experience
>>
>>64534659
Yes, and a big part of their complacency was blindly trusting the Republic government and serving as the Senate's unquestioning enforcers... though Mace's "solution" of having the Jedi outright take over the Senate was pretty terrible too.
>>

This whole scene was just plain fucking retardation. Everyone does a fucking 180 on their beliefs in a matter of seconds just so Lucas can wrap up Annie's turn into Vader.
>>
>>64535214

Damnit Lucas.

I only just noticed Windu was supposed to be distrusting and disdainful of Anakin rewatching it as an adult. When I was a kid I just got the impression he was being a stern adult due to how it was portrayed.
>>
>>64535416
>Damnit Lucas, how dare you make the films with subtle nuances that won't be picked up by small children

I don't like Lucas as a director or screenwriter either but come on

SLJ in real life? he's balding and shaves the hair that's left, because a little hair on the sides looks way worse than no hair at all. Hateful Eight shows what he looks like when he doesn't shave.

the character? damned if I know, who the fuck cares?

MACE DINDU WAS UNSTOPPABLE AS A CARTOON

TARANTINO IS STILL A GIGANTIC KUCK
>>
A zealot and the main reason why Anakin went over to the dark side. He, along with the council placed so many restrictions on Anakin but when it came to killing Palpatine he was willing to bend the rules a bit. Anakin remembers that shit yo.
>>
>>64540977
Every Dindu scene in Clone Wars is fucking outrageous.

Hell, at that end of that scene he just straight up superman-flies all the way across the battlefield, chugs farmer boy's water, and then flies back to kill more droids with his mind.

He's the fucking reason Grievous has a cough because right after Grievous finishes fucking up a bunch of highly effective Jedi, one even specializing in force pushes, without nary a scratch, Mace just jumps out of the fucking sky and instantly force crushes Grievous' chest cavity even though Grievous is prepared for him and in a fucking battle stance.

Like, holy shit I'd rather just watch Sam bust fools for an entire movie, that would be better.
