The biggest TFA problem - is lack of scene like this. Just silent, patient moments, when we can get much closer to the character.

When Rey is intoduced she doest say anything for a few minutes. She scavages a destroyers, rides down a sand hill (my favorite shot of the film i might add) and rides her floating motorcycle to town. And the score was actually decent too compared to the rest of the movie which i cant remember a single track that sticks out.
>>
I noticed that too. The OT has a lot of long quiet shots where you just kind of take things in. Once TFA gets going they never stop throwing shit in your face
>>
>>64625344
Well Jakku is kind of life that, the pacing isn't too fast. That totally vaporizes in the second act though.

The best example of how star wars had perfect pacing is the millennium falcon scenes where everyone is just chilling out and we learn about characters. Chewy plays chess with R2D2. We learn his ego has to be coddled like a child, we learn R2D2 is a winner, and we learn 3PO is a bitch. Luke and Obi Wan fuck with target practice. We learn about the force, and we learn han doesn't buy that shit and he contrasts luke's hopeful naive personality.

This would never be in a modern movie because the plot isn't advancing at all during this time, in a movie that already had a crawling pace in the first act where we watched robots fuck around in the desert.

Only scene with good music too.

You might want to watch the movie then. Rey had several quiet moments:
>eating her bread with the helmet on
>making her bread
etc
>>
>>64625344
How about the entire scene with her making food and going outside to eat?
>withering flower
>pilot doll
>watches space ship
>puts on a helmet
Without a single word the movie tells you everything about her character, it's functionally the same at the Luke sunset shot. Shit, even right before the food stuff Rey is looking at a super old woman doing the same job as her and there's a shot of one setting sun as Rey drives home.

>>64625873
OP goes from saying there's no shots like this to anon agreeing that "once tfa gets going" they don't stop again. Well shit anon does that mean you're just gonna ignore shots like this before the movie "gets going"? Isn't this shot before ANH 'gets going'? What other long shots in ANH are you talking about? They might be there, just not coming to my memory right now.

This was a great scene and gave me a lot of hope for the movie, unfortunately it went downhill from there

Yeah, I was feeling it at the beginning, but when the Falcon showed up it went straight to shit.
>>
>>64626454
The entire portion on Jakku from Rey's first appearance to her wearing the helmet was so good and so unlike the rest of the film that JJ was probably rolling in agony filming it.

The biggest TFA problem was that it was too busy trying to pander to faggots who refuse to grow up instead of telling a new, original story for the next generation.

pretty good

the biggest problem is that its a bad rehash of a boring movie and it doesnt even have the only redeeming factor that all the rest had which was an incredible soundtrack.

Seriously what happened to mr williams? was it his fault or the editors?

It's to appeal to the ADD faggots that are everywhere these days thanks to iphones and shitty parenting.

>Abrams, who has already made sci-fi films such as "Star Trek" and "Star Trek Into Darkness", also cited American cult director Terrence Malick, known for "The Tree of Life" and "The Thin Red Line", as an important influence.
>"Malick (is) not a director you would normally think you'd ... go to for a 'Star Wars' movie and yet ... I don't know of a more profound and emotional filmmaker than Malick," he said.
>"It sounds very pretentious to say 'oh I'm inspired by this person, that person', it's more about ... seeing things that you can aspire to ... and where appropriate apply lessons that you're learning from them."

Could this cunt be any more of a hack?
>>
>>64626806
well maybe boring wasnt the right word, but it certainly is the worst out of the original trilogy imo.
>>
>>64626898
>Malick was actually the one who directed the jakku scenes, explaining the massive deviation in quality

I'm not clicking the link but if he really likened himself to Malick...

>>64626898
If he actually thinks TFA bears any traces of "inspiration" by Kurosawa, Ford or Malick, he's delusional.

>The biggest prequels problem - is lack of scene like this. Just silent, patient moments, when we can get much closer to the character.

Fixed for you. TFA's pacing might be fast on account of the script being headed by Lawrence "Raiders of the Lost Ark" Kasdan, and yet TFA had plenty of little character moments that helped us relate to them and their struggles, unlike almost the entirety of Lucas's embarrassingly amateur bid for relevance after years of not being in the directors chair.
But feel free to continue deluding yourself on the prequels were good bandwagon, see you again 2017 when you'll be pretending that you knew what the the "plot holes" in Force Awakens actually were, that you liked Finn from the start and that you never called Rey a Marry Sue.

hello Reddit

So you didn't watch TFA?
Rey's introduction is four and a half minutes of her not saying anything, then she meets BB-8.

>>64625344
JJ is a hack, he can't afford to slow down his movies because if he does that, the fans will start thinking.

JJ does not want that to happen because his entire narrative collapses pretty quickly under mental scrutiny. So he moves from action sequence to action sequence with the bare minimum of slow dialogue.

>>64625784
This part of the movie actually gave me hope for the movie slowing down and being more thoughtful, I figured it would be a JJ fanwank flick after the opening sequence and unfortunately I was right.
>>
>>64626116
KANJIKLUB and Maz Kaneda were really shit scenes. The rest was mostly enjoyable albeit flawed.

Ever since I saw the film there was something about KANJIKLUB that bothered me, and I think I know what it is. That scene was so Disney Channel, it was like the perfect demographic focus group tested scene to sell toys for and endlessly replay clips of on the Disney channel

>>64627021

Do you dipshits not understand what the word "inspiration" means? No where did Abrams say his film was like those films. He was inspired by them.
>>
>>64628525

Lurking this thread, but time and time again, just like /v/, you guys bitching now will change your tune on everything once the newest installment of something comes out.
