I felt nothing during this scene. No tension, no anything.

We saw him win the Podrace (he was the only human that could do it) in Episode I.

We saw him fly through the city chasing down a bounty hunter and maneuvering at break neck speeds through traffic in Episode II.

Obi-Wan was (admittedly) a shit pilot. I actually kinda like that, every Jedi from the EU (and the Skywalker-Solos) was a cracker jack ace fighter pilot.

>>64609353
Cause they had the high ground

You probably should have saved your money then? Most people knew at this point that special effect battles were the reason to go. If you don't appreciate them, why see the movie?

Curiously enough, one of the best space battles ever is from some Finnish star trek fan's little team of creators.

There's no "prodigy" involved there, it was Jar Jar Binks level bullshit from beginning to end.

>>64608880

Yeah, that's the trouble with it. It's so very pretty, but it feels like Anakin & Obi-Wan are just passing through and not really *part* of it, and that was a common problem throughout the Prequel battles.
>>
>>64609951
Lando fucking up the antenna and never paying to fix the damage

>>64609876
when did Dagobah have x-wings and explosions though

You've said absolutely nothing of value here.
This has no meaning.
>>
>>64608834
>say what you want about the prequels

Ok I will. Coruscant was terrible as the series main location. Everyone there is talking up the war, but everything of interest as far as actual warfare goes is happening off in space and on other planets. Coruscant is an impossibly large city the size of a planet, and yet we barely see anything but a senate room the Jedi Temple, and all we ever really get to see of the Jedi Temple is the council room where Jedi sit and make terrible decisions that constantly lead to more war and death.

>>64608880
Nice RLM opinion right there, friend

I agree OP, there's something very engaging about it. I also enjoy the ribbing between Anakin and Obi-Wan.

The battle of Endor is the best fleet action ever put on screen. In the Pirkinning is a close second. Oddly enough Nemesis has an excellent space battle right up on the "Ramming speed" stupidity and the best two-ship battle is still from The Wrath of Khan.

Where did I say anything about the Podrace?
OK so he won a shitty little race where almost all of the other contestants got fucking murdered. Wow.

Does that really constitute the prestige of 'best star pilot in the galaxy?' Thats what Obi Wan said...

Best Star pilot in the galaxy. A kid who won a race
>>
>>64610231
it's not only the fact he won, it's that he's one of the only humans who can fly a pod coherently

don't hate the player hate the game if you have a problem with this you can tell it to Kanjiklub

>>64610298
so you're telling me the x-wing pilots dogfighting in space wouldn't be able to pilot a pod, a vehicle in which control seems limited to; (a) pushing the handbrakes forward to accelerate, and (b) steering the handbrakes to turn left and right.

There is nothing impressive about being able to pilot a pod.
>>
>>64610832
see
>>64610536

>>64608975
he also flew a naboo fighter into a separatist station and blew it up.

Look at that fucking pro with his 3 penis eyes
>>
>>64610832
the hard part is reacting at high speeds. if you play the pod racer videogame you see that anikan was racing on the simplest track in the galaxy. basically the difference between a nascar track and f1

Can we just go back to pretending that the prequels didn't happen like we had been before TFA came out

>>64611487
We didn't have to mention the prequels as they were already a part of cinema canon. We don't talk about Citizen Kane either.

How about you take a break from 4chan to watch TFA a 12th time, Disneykiddie?

The battle scenes in Matrix 3 look pretty cool, but they are also hilariously bad because they represent a liberal tranny's idea of military strategy
