/tv/ irrevocably blown the fuck out, just close this board already Hiroyuki

>This peculiar contradiction began to resolve itself with the pleasures of “Attack of the Clones.” There, Lucas’s force awakens. The movie’s rich-hued palette alone is a jolt from the start, and the movie’s action scenes have an alluring, entrancing kinetic vigor and texture.

>What endures for the critics and their lay associates, for aesthetes who live for the beauty and the pleasure of movies, is Lucas’s directing—of two films, “Attack of the Clones” and, especially, “Revenge of the Sith.” If Lucas had done nothing else in his life, he’d have an honored place in my personal pantheon for that work.

Are you stupid? He literally says right there in the section you quoted that ROTS is the best Star Wars.

The author wrote a book on Godard, patrician confirmed. RiP RLM, your betters have spoken

he didn't just write a book on godard, he wrote with godard's consent and participation

you guys are retarded. despite the New Yorker generally being a great magazine, their film section is always the weakest part of the whole and their worst offender for generally tone deaf taste is Richard Brody.

that being said, I hate all Star Wars movies equally but you guys are being dumbasses by revering a writer you've embarrassingly never even heard of

>>64659704

>posting the Brody doesn't have taste meme

Good job, lad. You did it.

Reminder that The New Yorker also said The Force Awakens had a magnificent soundtrack, which is equally bullshit.

Also, another reminder that the New Yorker is not one person or a hivemind. That's what I primarily like about it, actually. John Cassidy might write something that someone else would pen a disagreeing article later on. It takes longform journalism seriously.

>likely never reading the New Yorker and just reading Brody's blurbs online

keep it up my man

>Abrams’s shortcomings as a rebooter also make it easier to appreciate Lucas. Lucas didn’t always think of himself as a great director. (He has often said he was mostly a great editor.) But he was a Tolkien-level master at creating new worlds—as the critic Tom Shone noted, he created so many that Abrams didn’t seem to feel the need to create any.

This is from a different article but it does a good job of showing some of Abrams' shortcomings compared to Lucas.

This.

I guarantee most of these cucks didn't know who Brody was before this article anyway.

He has shit opinions and the New Yorker's film section is notoriously pleb
>>
>>64658701

I agree with a lot of Brody's opinions, unfortunately this stupid article is going to be paraded around /tv/ for the forseeable future just because someone who isn't some youtuber has this opinion.

Doesn't help that Brody's ridiculous writing style convinces plebs that he's some sort of ultra-intelligent savant and his opinion should be taken as fact.

That said, I am legitimately glad that Lucas is being appreciated more and the high points of the prequels are being singled out, though I don't get the problem he has with Williams, personally.

>Hearing Williams’s compositions for “Star Wars” is like being ordered, loudly and aggressively, to feel, and to feel one thing. It sounds calculated to bludgeon a viewer into submission, to create a cowed unanimity of simple and narrow emotions that are the antithesis of imagination and fantasy.

Why is this allowed?

The whole article feels like a 12 year old with a dictionary at hand trying to type big words for an essay due tomorrow what a fucking retard
>>
What a bombastic and pretentious way to write an opinion piece. I can't even take it seriously. The article is too self-impressed. It's far more interested in sounding intelligent and cultured instead of conveying its opinion.
>>
>>64660360

People are allowed to dislike Williams' compositional style.

It's not like he's Beethoven.

>>64660640
No theyre not.

This is merely a glib facsimile of a good movie review.

>On the other hand, it must be satisfying to see his gifts as a director, so long forgotten, be praised. “The Force Awakens” makes it once again possible to think about George Lucas as a man of imagination, of conviction, and (minus Jar Jar Binks) of taste—as a brilliant appropriator rather than an average one. It took a forgery to get him called an artist.
