So now that the dust has settled we can all pretty much agree this guy was the worst part of the movie, right?
Really? Even with all the ridiculous unfunny quips and inconsistent character?
Not to mention he was a huge eye sore, especially on a damn 70MM IMAX screen.
He was one of the best actors in the film.
Meme as hard as you want /pol/, he did a good job.
>haha yeah im not r-racist either haha upvote me reddit xd xd
At least he had character and actually acted like a human from earth. Unlike any character from the prequels...
I love Oscar Isaac and think he's one of the best actors of the new generation but he wasn't very charismatic in this movie. His character was kind of flat for me and I hope he improves in the next one.
Asia. Expectations are, I should be racist to the ooga booga man. I mean, yeah I expected to dislike his character too. But I'm not kidding you or pretending not to be racist when I say I really didn't find anything wrong with Finn. I was too distracted at how Rey can do everything really well for some reason.
>I kept wondering how Rey could do this and that.
She's Han and Leia's daughter. She "inherited" Han's mechanical aptitude and Leia's Force connection. But she's also a girl, so she doesn't suck ass like Kylo.
Ohh how I wish I was joking.
he was enjoyable enough, reflecting perhaps he should have been more naive and stern. Being a conditioned Trooper and all. He should have been the 'Luke' character really with Rey being more cynical and the 'Solo' type.
Maybe it's just me then. I kept staring at his fucking face jesus christ.
OFFICIAL WORST PART OF MOVIE POWER RANKINGS:
1. complete lack of new world building+retroactively ruining the end of ROTJ
3. the "plot"
4. stylistically closer to capeshit than sci-fi
>cast two white men as the evil bad guys
>they end up being the two best and most enjoyable characters anyway
Nope because they're protecting her from Kylo worried that he'll come kill her if he knows who she is. Even if she knows, they're worried he would sense it. That's why they orphaned her, for her protection, just like Leia.
THEY ARE NOT FROM EARTH
CHARACTERS THAT ARE NOT FROM EARTH SHOULD NOT ACT LIKE THEY ARE FROM EARTH HOLY SHIT THIS IS NOT HARD TO UNDERSTAND
I like his Anakin. He had the same pouty whine that Luke had but more unbalanced and crazy. It was the actual writing and the transition from questioning to mustache twirling evil where they dropped the ball.
I don't want it to be true, but I'd bet money it's something like that. Looking at this movie, there's no way she's not related to the Skywalkers in some way. Even though it would probably be better if she wasn't, that's not something they can resist.
So the only two options are she's Luke's kid or another of Han and Leia's. Since it's not even hinted at cannon that Luke has a romantic relationship of any sort, it makes that less likely because at this point they'd really have to shoehorn in where and when he had a kid.
That pretty much leaves Han and Leia. It would make sense they may want to try and protect her from Kylo the way Luke and Leia were protected from Vader. It also explains even more her mechanical aptitude and the way Han treats and acts towards her.
Like I say, I think it's pretty stupid. I thought the whole movie was pretty stupid. But at this point I'd put money on her being Han's daughter.
his character makes no sense
storm troopers are brainwashed from birth, their loyalty checked everyday,
this guy just changes his mind?
God damn, I could see them pulling something that bad as well.
Where do you think she may have come from then? Is she unrelated to the skywalkers? Just a random orphan with lots of medichlorians? Or if she's Luke's kid how would they make that work?
No, only since they're little. He remembers his village and shit.
>this guy just changes his mind?
It was his first mission in the field - slaughter an entire village of innocent people.
He was pretty neutral IMO.
Wasn't good enough for Star Wars - aka biggest box office ever, but wasn't terrible. I am surprised they chose someone with child-bearing hips to be an action star.
Kylo Ren was definitely the worst character/actor.
Why was Finn a technician in the the SNL skit? Are they saying he was demoted afterward?
They did not say anything because they assumed she was killed along with all the other paddies from the KOR massacre at the Jedi school. Kylo couldn't kill her because he just started his dark side career; therefore he dropped her off on Jakku. Which was shitty in itself.
Think about it.
Honestly i never minded black characters in any movie ever but when they are forced down like this one it becomes so evident that its going to be the mark of this age.
In the future we gonna have "we pretend its 2015" threads where we replace any important role with a black muslim woman to please pc redditors and tumblerites.
To all normal people out there who can see through this bullshit, just hold on friends, its almost over.
cause i'm a fucking loser with no friends and a job that only sees me leave the house once or maybe twice a week, sometimes i go to my parent's house on the weekend but i think they're starting to resent the fact that i don't have any friends to hang out with. i haven't had a girlfriend since 2009, and haven't even spoken to a girl outside of a work situation since maybe 2010.
So it's basically been confirmed that Rey is Lukes daughter, but I wonder if he has any other children like in the EU. And, you guys think his other kids are force sensitive too.
I bet Luke Skywalker has a lot of Force kin.
Yeah, but there are places for losers with no friends to go on the internet that are less likely to have anime reaction images posted all the time. Haven't you even looked at the banners here? If you hate that shit, you've literally picked one of the worst places you possibly could to spend your time.
What the fuck?
Nigger was pretty much the only likable character in the whole movie.
My girlfriend thought the Finn character came off extremely creepy.
He's constantly trying to grab Rey when she wants noting to do with him.
And he basically acts like a neanderthal perv:
> unnnhhhh ummmmmmm Uhhhhhh
> You got a boyfriend at home?
> hungh? hungh? do ya? do ya?
> ya got a sexy boyfriend at home?
Why did they write Finn as such a bad Nigger stereotype?
Rey was probably the first real female Finn's ever interacted with. It made a lot of sense.
Of course, if you view everything through the lens of race like a faggot, you come up with your conclusion.
It's amusing you're getting this worked up from being up your own ass. We're not talking about Canon we're talking about Writing, there is a reason they speak the way they do. Notice how in guardians of the Galaxy the Human looking Aliens had human senses of humor?
I thought it was funny that Finn was targeted as the "male who doesn't understand that women are strong", but they did it wrong and he ended up seeming sensible
>sees Rey beat the dudes up
>audience is supposed to think "Finn assumed a woman couldn't take care of herself"
>Finn actually just seems like "oh, she can fight. neat."
>STOP HOLDING MY HAND
>audience is supposed to cheer for girl power
>literally saves her life from a threat she doesn't know about
>are you okay?
>audience is supposed to laugh at him assuming a woman would be hurt
>he actually comes off as kind
>Finn lies about his past
>audience is supposed to think that he's lying to get sex
>it is actually a political move that could save his life since he doesn't understand the outside world
ii've never had a problem with finn. he was rather likeable when he wasn't over the top
>why you doing this?
>i'm in charge now, phasma. i'm in charge.
i don't see how that would make me drop the series. if they have to do a romance, i'd prefer them both to show a little more depth as characters beforehand and not just throw them together. TFA was so rushed we didn't really have that much time to explore anyone.
>Or maybe everything you said was actually intended?
The scene where Finn says "are you okay?" and Rey says "yeah" is shot as a comic moment. But nobody in my theatre laughed, because there was nothing actually dumb about asking that. Same when Rey takes Finn's hand instead of vice versa. It's an attempt at a "turnabout" moment of gender politics that doesn't work at all, because we care about both characters as people and not as archetypes.
Other examples: man not being able to find the correct piece of equipment ("the one I'm pointing to!"), and Han saying "women are smart" as a line of dialogue. Not even coded.
He wasn't very good, and at the end of the day he was nothing more than a diversity hire.
That said, he really seems to enjoy what he's doing, so good for him.
Eventually you just hit a point where everything is utterly unsurprising and it's enough to just be happy that other people are happy.
