Stage 1: Denial
>What? Rey's not a Mary Sue, she's just the Chosen One...and for your information the new Star Wars is fucking amazing!
Stage 2: Anger.
>Fuck you and your blatant misogyny you autistic nerds! Some of us can just turn off our brains and enjoy shit you hate-filled sperglords!
Stage 3: Bargaining
So what if Rey WAS a Mary Sue. Luke's a huge Gary Stue himself. They're just alike so if you hate her then you hate Luke, so Rey's still okay. Right? And since Star Wars was always a childrens movie it doesn't matter that TFA is brainless fun.

Brace for the coming wave of Depression as people transition. This same shit happened with Ep1 and every prequel release.

My problem was that she was not so sexy as I wished and she kinda seemed like a Tarzan type character.

Why hasn't anyone edited this image and put Kylo over it?

BB-8 was the best character.

This.

BB-8 was the only likeable one.
So happy I got my Sphero(Tm) BB-8 droid

No c3po was. His few lines were elegance

C-3PO is going to be in Metal Gear Solid VI

C3PO being C3PO was the most Star Wars thing in TFA

So stage 4 is depression

Stage 5 = Hope? (For Ep 8)

Why do people always pick one character to hate instead of just hating the whole film?

>Ep1 is shit
>All the hate is funnelled onto Jar Jar
>Ep2 is shit
>All the hate is funnelled onto Anakin
>Ep7 is shit
>All the hate is funnelled onto Rey
>>
>>64546046

Because Anakin ruined the prequel trilogy and Darth Vader as a character generally?
>>
>>64546046
I liked all the other characters in TFA other than Rey

It's still shitposting even if it's ironic

i actually want one of those. maybe if they ever drop in price ill grab one

She was absolutely a bad example of a Mary Sue, but that doesn't mean the movie is Episode 1-Tier

I'll take a Mary Sue main character over an annoying kid any day
>>
>>64546617
Qui Gon is the main character in TPM though
Then it's Obi Wan in AotC and RotS

>>64546640
> Qui Gon is the main character in TPM though

Qui Gon doesn't have a character.

hello reddit

What is this thing trying to articulate exactly?

>character a was a character x-type character. You aren't supposed to do that.
>Google that if you don't know what that is.
>character b was a character y-type character. You aren't supposed to do that.
>Google that if you don't know what that is.

I mean, the movie is dogshit but I get the distinct impression that this guy has heard these tropes/buzzwords that you could apply to TFA and has decided to dislike the movie without really knowing why those things are detrimental to a story.

I imagined anyone who disliked it did so because of their own personal reaction to it, not because it featured a particular set of tropes.

I'd argue this movie could have actually been good even if they kept Rey as a Mary-Sue, though perhaps toned-down a little. Identifying tropes in a movie/tv show does not automatically make it bad
>>
>>64545605
or maybe she just wasn't overpowered at all

The movie had a ton of shitty tropes making the movie overall shitty. Not to mention a lot of stuff doesn't make sense either and there's no emotional impact anywhere in the movie. On top of that, it didn't even feel like a Star Wars movie. It felt like a Marvel movie with le quirky humour and quips with some lightsabers in there.

What is Rey's character?

I thought Forbes was a serious publication, why would they allow this garbage?

>>64546923
Yeah but people who don't like the franchise in the first place use it as a platform to be different and edgy or some shit

This guy is making fun of those people he calls the Millenium falcon a Tom Delonge type character he likes the movie but is making fun of the people who dislike it only to be different.

The worst part about this movie was that the Starkiller Base had next to NO tension at all. It was literally there for "teh bigur BADUR DETH STAR! xDDD

Erik Kain is usually on point, I don't know what the fuck he smoked when writing this.

>>64547033
If you take away the death star 3 the movie really becomes the second TPM in terms of plot significance.
>>
>>64547027
i feel like he's just making fun of people who have a problem with rey, which is kinda shitty. are we not allowed to call a bad character bad?

Tbh. Luke was a Gary Sue. Whatever that means.

He was a fucking peasant.
And his only strategy was to get his friends in danger all the time.
>>
>>64547300
He wasn't a Sue, he wasn't good at anything besides aiming (which he explains why that is) and piloting (which is also explained) and needed his ass saved for the entirety of ANH. Hell, one of the earliest scenes in ANH is him getting rekt by sand people.

reyfag arguments in a nutshell
>accusing you of hating women, being a sexist, or being a misogynist for criticizing a fictional character
>accusing you of taking away female role models from children for criticizing a fictional character
>shitty strawmans like >>64545639
>claiming rey was trained in the force as a toddler before being dropped off in jakku, as if this somehow excuses her from being a mary sue
>claiming kylo ren was not a fully trained sith, even though he easily froze a blaster bolt in mid air and trained under luke for years when rey just figured out the force was real minutes ago
>claiming rey's flaw was running away, even though she's exceptionally brave throughout the entire movie (like challenging those men for BB8) and suffers no true repercussions because of it
>accusing Luke of being a mary sue (when he wasn't)
>accusing other characters of being mary sues when you get BTFO after accusing Luke of being one
>complaining about kid anakin from the phantom menace, even though everyone hated him
>turn off your brain bro
>>
>>64547380
You have a point. In ROTJ he goes full retard tho.
>>
Maybe if Rey was more sexy-looking and fit she would be much more convincing
>>
>>64547300

>He was a fucking peasant.

And accordingly, he got his ass kicked many times because of it. It isn't until ROTJ that he does anything remotely Jedi-like.
