Why do OT fags hate this scene so much?
>GOAT diner music
>interesting new character
SERIOUSLY he makes it so believable that he and Dexter are good friends
>Dexter clearly states he used to prospect in the outer rim
Why is it so hard to grasp that he'd know secrets and such?
Fuck you bitches, TFA had nothing like this
The poor CGI is what's so shit about it.
But say what you will about how shitty the prequels were, at least Lucas had good world building. Cool planets, aliens, ships, cultures, etc.
TFA didn't even have the balls to make a planet with a new topography.
In general, people who hate the prequels take Star Wars way, way too seriously. They had bought into the hype that the original Star Wars films (especially Empire) were these masterpieces when they're really just good movies.
So when the prequels came out and were just good movies like the originals, they failed to live up to these unrealistic expectations, and so cries of "Lucas ruined my childhood" rang throughout the Internet.
The Force Awakens doesn't get shit on (for the most part, people here seem to hate it but it's beloved everywhere else) because the prequels lowered the expectations of these people. Literally, everyone who loved this new one was like "it's at least better than the prequels."
Mike (and Jay and everyone else at RLM) hates Lucas for "ruining their childhoods" so they threw whatever insults they could at him.
They're all a bunch of bitter "ex" fanboys whose opinions need to be taken with a huge grain of salt but are instead accepted as "the absolute truth" by idiots online (even though a lot of their complaints are easily debunked).
But don't take my word for it. Here's a video where these bitter ex-fanboys cry about the Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones ruining Star Wars and their childhood, made years before the Plinkett reviews. They were losers playing the Star Wars RPG then, and they're fucking losers now.
>over the twin sunset, forest battle, sheev theme, throne room fight, battle of the heroes, battle of endor 1
its a good theme anon, but that may be a bit far ina few places
Because not only the place feels out of place in a hyperfuturistic setting such as Coruscant, it was also a completely useless scene.
It is too unbelievable that only one of Obi-Wan's friends (and a character who we have never seem before) knows the location of Kamino. Obi-Wan could have find out the missing information in any other place. Maybe he could have chased a small villain who had the information, he could have inspected some place such an office or whatever. Instead, Lucas just wanted to make an homage to American Graffitti and his beloved 50's, so he inserted that scene in an arc that was ultimately left unresolved.
Zero comprehension skills, anon. I said Coruscant was the hyperfuturistic setting, not Dexter Jesster's restaurant.
>I have read so many rants and discussions about the prequels I know the name of the alien
>mfw I have wasted precious time of my life
> too techno-ish for Star Wars
Who the fuck said Star Wars doesn't have techno? Who the fuck makes these ridiculous rules of Star Wars because they're not in the films.
Star Wars has:
God, watching the actual filming of that scene when Ewan has to hug the air and pretend there's a giant alien in his arms. The whole time Ewan has this amused "what the fuck am I doing" look.
Why do they say "Hell" in Star Wars?
Is Christianity a religion in Star Wars?
I know the "Church of the Force" is a religion in Star Wars. They also say "Sith" is a religion. And then there's the Wookies and Life Day.
Hey, do you think Christians in Star Wars can use the Force? Do you think they believe the Light Side is Heaven and the Dark Side is Hell?
>Chaos, referred to as Hell in Corellian mythology and also known as The Void, was a reputedly dark region of the Netherworld of the Force inhabited by the spirits of deceased Dark Lords of the Sith, Dark Jedi, and the spirits of all evil sentient beings who had died. In Naboo mythology, Chaos was envisioned as a dark pit kept closed by six impenetrable gates.
why the fuck would a restaurant on corsucant, a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, resemble a diner on earth from the 1950's? it's just terrible.
Star Wars tries to be serious but things like this keep it from being a legit lore
Can you imagine Tolkien writing about the hobbits in a parisian coffee house? where they serve croissants and play accordion music? that's about the same thing going on here
> at least Lucas had good world building blah blah blah
Well parroted. Prequels are a wasted opportunity and Lucas is a hack.
>The look of Dex's Diner also appears similar to that of a diner in Star Wars Droids, although it is unknown if this similarity was intentional or a coincidence.
RLM? That's your comeback? Bwahahahaha, oh boy these retards are still buttblasted abouts those losers.
really bugged me he was a basilisk and his robos name was hermione... just seemed like lucas was reading harry potter to his kids and decided to add some references into star wars which simply doesnt need them. And the diner seems to be referencing american graffiti which makes a bit more sense to nod towards but a 50's diner doesnt fit well into star wars, plus the cgi was bad and...well the whole scene just feels "off" even more so than so much of the prequels which don't feel like star wars this scene especially doesn't, its almost bizarre obi wan is standing in this setting.
jabbas palace has the seedy gangster feeling without simply being a scene from the godfather but with luke and r2d2 hanging out... a diner guy who obi wan gets info from is a fine idea but you can't just do a 50's diner you have to figure out what that looks like in the star wars world like jabba to an old mafia guy, dexter and his diner sadly do not pull off that transition and just look like a weird alien guy in a diner... also once again why the hell reference harry potter here or at all in star wars???
>TFA didn't even have the balls to make a planet with a new topography.
I actually sorta agree with this, but then Jakku was the only really bad offender. It was literally pretty much Totally-Not Tatooine.
Starkiller Base was pretty cool though and the other planet whose name I'm forgetting was alright, if a little Endor-ish.
