>>64747625 No. Reddit loves the prequels since they grew up with them and can't judge films beyond their personal nostalgia. Especially RotS is popular with fedora tippers because they think people dying makes it dark and gritty. On 4chan RotS is only liked for the memes like TDKR
>since they grew up with them and can't judge films beyond their personal nostalgia.
You mean like when all of /tv/ shits on the prequels when in most cases they are just as dumb as the originals? I mean I love Star Wars but it's stupid no matter how you look at it, and if you think the originals are really any less stupid you are lying to yourself.
>>64748139 The originals aren't perfect, but they are timeless space-adventure stories. The prequels are garbage on every level. Only people who like them do so for shitty reasons like "the clones were badass" or "lightsabers are awsum"
>>64748172 >if you were to ask them what's wrong with the prequels they'd probably link to RLM.
It's not surprising that the same people who attack the prequels are always unversed in real film or anything artistic, and that the people who praise the prequels (Zizek, Paglia, Brody, etc) are always literate, educated, and versed in real film.
The fact that everyone points to Plinkett as the authority on why the prequels are bad speaks volumes. Mike Stoklasa is one of the least artistic people on the planet - he can't process movies outside of the conventions of Hollywood films, his approach to narrative is tempered with the same surface-level requisites listed on tvtropes.
Any complaint that people have about the prequels illustrates a weak grasp on film. How many art films would they claim has 'too much sitting and talking'? They would watch the end of Breaking the Waves and whine about dated CGI. Their sensibilities for 'good dialogue' in what is intentionally pulp comes from bad pulp, ie, the original Star Wars, the only pulp they've ever seen. They would similarly view any homage-driven art film and miss the entire point.
Lucas' only mistake in the prequels was doing something daring, original, artistic and literate, not realizing that the manchildren conditioned by the original SW trilogy to loathe anything cerebral would lash out against his cinematic risks.
>>64747625 Exactly. We are a diamond in the biggest pile of bullshit ever. But a diamond at least. Pure, made out of our ideas, unbendable to the wills of the "they won't like it", "we have to consider this market" Memeddit is an all publics proof product. Soulless. Palatable for the masses.
>>64748424 Yeah, but in the same way TDKR is. We know they're both shitty movies, we just love them for the memes and unintentional comedy. Reddit takes scenes like Anakin killing the younglings seriously and thinks it's great drama
>>64748354 >Lucas' only mistake in the prequels was doing something daring, original, artistic and literate Yeah while he sat his fat ass on his director chair drinking coffee and not actually directing scenes

>They all think RotS is the second best Star Wars movie. >they constantly tip their fedora to scenes like order 66
you obviously know enough about reddit to know which aspects of the prequels they specifically praise. all i've said so far is that reddit hates the prequels, which isn't really saying much since every normie in the world hates the prequels. i could go to any website and find overwhelming prequel hate
just accept the fact that you're a pleb and think JJ is god's gift to cinema
>>64748706 This scene alone is better than all of TFA.
ROTS is painted in broad brush strokes. It is played out a mammoth stage by actors with megaphones. It is big and bold. It is outrageously epic geographically and emotionally. The symbolism is grand too and because it is in keeping with the story's sweep it does not unbalance the story.
On the scene, at the Opera House, the Mon Calamari put on a show where sperm-like ribbons float in and out of a massive watery egg. The discussion between Sheev and Anakin about the creation of life cements the visual message.
>"Ironic isn't it? ...He could save others but not himself" - Sheev >"He saved others, let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One" - Priest Luke 23:35
George Lucas uses the language of Christian heritage, words already resonant with meaning, as stepping stones to a greater understanding. In this way he subtly illuminates for us the roles, the motivations and the size of what is at stake.
JJ Abrams would NEVER be able to pull off a scene as poignant as this one. In his version there would be dutch shots of the dialogue with average length of 1 second then some random terrorist attack would happen at the opera and Sheev would have to continue the story to Anakin while they are both running through a collapsing hallway with lights strobing.
>>64748887 >Darth Plagueis is a Sith legend >The jedi wouldn't tell Anakin about him >he died only a couple years ago and the jedi council weren't aware of any Sith lords for the past 1000 years Sheev is so good at bullshitting
>>64749638 un-freekin-believable. George Lucas like any director has a chance of creating flops. He didn't avoid the temptations and indulged. So if we owe him an apology for the prequels then I guess 'heads is tails.' Howard the Duck; Radioland Murders; Crystal skull; Willow; Ewok Adventures are the bastions of cinema par excellence.
