J.J. was obviously the wrong choice. Star Wars needs someone with debilitating autism otherwise you'll distort the original vision.

Do you understand that people went to watch this flick because:
1) It is Star Wars
2) There was a lot of hype about it

And not because how good/bad the flick actually is? Because you don't know how it's going to be before you see it.

What does its quality have to do with anything? The point is: why would they change what they're doing when what they're doing is literally printing them money?

Hey I am not the one who wants actual good directors wasted on capeshit and star wars.
Those are popcorn movies. JJ is perfect for this shit.

You honestly want Malick or Refn to direct a Star Wars movie? I guess Nolan could work but I honestly think even he is too good for Star Wars.

He would never do it even if Disney wanted him back.

This. I'm pretty sure Lucas was traumatized by the backlash against the prequels (plus it's not completely unprobable that he's had some sort of brain damage or gotten senile). He sold that shit as soon someone was willing to pay a decent price.

False.

Nostalgia is a huge part for me with the prequels, but as I've gotten a little older I've actually grown to appreciate what Lucas tried to do.

George got taken advantage of by his new wife and her friends at Disney, tired of the constant hate by fanboys, they conned him into selling his life's work for a pittance which Disney will make back this year.

>I HATE IT FOR NOT BEING TECHNICALLY A GOOD MOVIE
>>
Disney's just a cynical money-making enterprise. They could have easily hired someone with a modicum of creativity to come up with a story that at least tried to look new, but they didn't. That's their business choice & we won't see how it'll really pan out until 8 comes out, so I'm willing to wait. Where Disney or JJ fucked up royally was in not designing a ton of new spaceships & weapons that they could sell as toys. Even the new Stormtroopers look like a tepid refresh. The Starkiller didn't even get any really good Hero shots & was mostly presented as a planet. That's not how you sell toys. Bad business move.

But you guys seem to have forgotten how Lucas gained a special ability to make the wrong choice repeatedly. You want him back strictly for what you think his story sketch might be. I personally wouldn't trust anything Lucas wrote after episode 5 being any good in any way. If you want someone writing a half-interesting story extension or designing some new cool starships, anyone moderate talent could have done that. You don't need Lucas for that.

George Lucas himself was essentially the primary editor on all six of the original movies. It's literally the reason he even makes movies in the first place. He's always said editing is the only part of the movie-making process he actually enjoys doing. Most directors collaborate with their editor/s to some degree, but Lucas is known for being particularly involved with it at every stage of the process. He edited the gunport battle sequence in A New Hope entirely on his own because no one else knew how to do it.

It's over people. The magic is gone. Disney won't take risks and George has had his storytelling chops leeched out of him years ago. There is no more hope.
>>
>>64605709
George wanted to maintain some creative input, for the new trilogy, and seemed to be under the impression that he could work together with Disney in some form. But then they scrapped all of his ideas and basically told him to fuck off further into production because George didn't want to just thoughtlessly rehash the OT. Which is why he is so bitter lately, like on Charlie Rose, he still cares about Star Wars, he admits that they're his kids basically, but in interviews preceding and after the sale it was obvious that the unrelenting hate circlejerk started to get to him, and he felt like the fans didn't want him anymore, so he sold it off.

They didn't so much exploit George. They exploited the situation is all, and by the sounds of it raped George's IP more than he was expecting making it seem like he regrets selling it to them.

Now George is just a rich bitter old man that sold off his legacy. I don't feel sorry for him.

People talk about the terrible lines, but I think more than half the fault lies in Hayden's casting & the way he delivered those lines. Even the "I don't like sand" speech. A different actor could have sold it. But George is infamous for not giving a fuck about how an actor works it on set, so we got what we got. Sheev, Obi Wan, Dooku, Mace, Maul, Qui Gon, and even Amadila were all pretty OK.
>>
>>64607148
Eh... I really don't think any of the Ani/Padme dialogue could have been sold, no matter the actor. A lot of the bad acting really can be attributed to the stupidity of the lines, they needed to be heavily edited and the movies would have turned out much better.

Actually, SW nerds want him back because of the canon bullshit, they don't give a fuck Lucas is a hack and ruined the background of the OT, they just care about the canon, and nothing is more canon than the bullshit Jorge comes up with. They literally can't wait for Darth Insanus and Darth Icky to be part of the established SW canon.

>implying nerds made 'nerd culture' mainstream
Nerd culture became mainstream because many various entertainment companies and conglomerates realized that, aside from kids, the bulk of the ancillary needless consumer products they put out (toys, models, merchandise, special blu rays, tie in books/games/etc) are bought by nerds. So, they spent the 00s shifting 'nerd culture' to 'the norm' to build up a much larger consumer base.

Like everything else in the world, it's all about money.

>first do episodes 10-11-12.
People hate them like the prequels even though pretty much no CGI EFFECTS were used at all. But people want to know how this all happened in 7-8-9 and especially after 6. 7-8-9 is about how luke failed his jedi school and what caused kylo ren to become kylo ren bullshit. Goes completely overboard with CGI and 7-8-9 become timless masterpieces like the OT.

Learn to rhyme faggot.

Episode 1,2,and 3 were cash grabs as he had given up on life after his divorce.
Episode 5, and 6 were just rehashes of 4.
Episode 7 is exactly similar to what Gerog would've done anyway.

Hayden was fine in RotS, and the dialogue wasn't as consistently terrible as it was in AotC. I think that he just wasn't ready as an actor at that point and Lucas was at the peak of his autism - completely unaware of how to sell the romance. That just screwed it all up.

What people seem to not understand is this is the best Star Wars movie that you're going to get that's being overlooked by Disney. Even though I think JJ Abrams is a talented Director, he is still a huge "Yes-Man", a studio puppet.

The prequels were ruined by the rabid fans that hated on Jar Jar before Lucas had the time to do his epic reveal, as well as ruined by Lucas himself for catering to the myopic Star Wars fanbase.

The only thing that really needed to change in Episode 1 was for all references to Midochlorians to be purged from the script. Getting rid of the poop jokes would have been nice too.

But no. The fanbase made their desires clear, and they got what they wanted with TFA: A bland remake of ANH with endless cameos and references to the original series that played it as safe as possible.

The original series was pretty decent for a cult movie, but the prequels could have potentially been really good.
>>
>>64615985
>>64616036

Fortunately I'm not the one who made that post. Plinkett's review on Star Wars & any film in that matter, are void of any merit when you take into consideration that TFA is riddled with the same problems the Prequels has & yet only the Prequels is singled out for them.

Maybe Lucas isn't the guy to fix this, but it certainly isn't Abrams.
>>
>>64602469

Star Wars without having Lucas directly involved is literally not Star Wars. It is fanfiction at best. Don't get me wrong, TFA is a very well-crafted fanfiction with a massive budget, but without George, it is purely fanfiction nonetheless.
