How has this movie had such little pop culture impact despite the massive amount of hype it received?

Nobody is quoting the film. None of the characters are particularly memorable. Nothing iconic has come out of it. Discussion of the film itself has dried up on /tv/ after a mere month; nobody is even bothered enough to speculate about plot points.

The only reason this film will even be vaguely remembered over the next few years is because the Disney marketing machine won't let you forget it. After that, nothing. For a franchise that has historically been exceedingly culturally enduring, is this movie an abject failure?
>>
Don't worry, jarjar will save the next film.
>>
It added nothing new to the series. All it did was get people to say "Hey, remember star wars?" then they thought about how much they loved the original trilogy as a child. There was no substance or imagination to the force awakens beyond that nostalgia grab.

History will prove Lucas' bold and audacious prequel trilogy to be held in higher regard than this nostalgia bait disney shit.

You may be mistaking "popularity" for "pop culture impact".
>>
No one talks about movies anymore
>>
>>65135246
No, I'm saying Star Wars already had a MASSIVE pop culture impact, everything from Dodge setting up an ad with Darth Vader/accompanying stormtrooper-painted vehicles to just about every page on my facebook feed trying to string together some connection between them and star wars. I'm talking about all the Star Wars merchandise, quotes and fanbase that has existed for decades.

In other words, what "pop culture" impact did this movie need to have that the entire franchise didn't already? Everyone I know who loves Star Wars still talks about it, and it snatched up new fans along the way...I'm not sure what you expect outside of that.

Honestly, I went to see tfa, I thought it was good but then I rewatched the prequels and came to appreciate them.
Tfa was the weakest starwars

>>65135338
That's entirely historical pop culture impact from the OT.

Where is the impact specifically generated by the new film? Just because the original trilogy had a massive impact, doesn't mean sequels have can't also do the same.

Even Frozen will have had more of a lasting pop culture impact than this film.

>>65135023

It was a failure, yup. It was just the usual bland garbage that gets spewed out these days, except with lightsabers. They tossed in some old characters ( who didn't behave like themselves at all) and upped the nostalgia factor a bit. China didn't get hyped up by nostalgia and saw the movie with a relatively clear mind and thought it sucked. It's bombing heavily there, as it should've been here.

>"You know what I come for."
>"I know where you come FROM."

I've been quoting to myself the banter between Kylo & Lors for WEEKS now. I thinks its one of the most iconic Star Wars scenes ever. Kylo Ren's menacing voice mixed with his composed demeanor bouncing off of Lors unflinching confidence was fun to watch on screen. Like he sees thru Kylo's bullshit. He knows he's a wannabe.

I don't know man, that Jakku scene was very iconic to me in and of itself. Different one of the best Star Wars moments of all time.

>"You are so right"! *SLASH*

Fuck! Kylo was so GOAT man I can't wait till episode 8.

Such a short sighted generation. We won't know what sticks until years from now. This once of the most viewed movies ever. I doubt it will go the way of Avatar and have nothing burned into popular culture. It's Star Wars. Kids today will dictate what is culturally relevant about it in the future.

lol han shot first isn't a facet of star wars' cultural impact, han shot first is an artifact of the earliest meme culture.

Its is a contribution to the meaningless ephemera in the dustbin of history as described by Hideo Kojima, not something meaningful and distinct on its own.

May the force be with you is an example of something from star wars leaving an impression on the collective cultural consciousness.

8 and 9 can actually make 7 a better movie. I think 7 will be well remembered by most people. 90's kids seem to like the prequels and they are pure garbage.
>>

Maybe JJTrek
>>
>>65135403
To better add to this guy's point, think of it this way, even as widely regarded as failures as they are, the prequels still have had more cultural impact than episode 7. Think about it, plenty of people quote and can recall characters and plot points from the prequels. Yes, it's often because of how utterly fucking retarded they were, but they still LEFT AN IMPRESSION.

This movie was like fast food. Once you're done eating it, you never think about it again.

>>65135023
It's a mediocre film that actually manages to have less charm than the prequels. Well that's not entirely correct - although poor the prequels had charm. This shit has none at all.

Yes, but not literally within five minutes of the character becoming an internet meme. They usually waited for a character to gestate in the public's consciousness before fleshing them out, like Boba Fett or IG-88.

Also the old EU did a better job of it. TR-8R is now officially some ugly ginger guy who's good with a stick and trained with Finn. That's it, the best they could come up with.

It had its pop culture moment. The only people who give a flying fuck about Star Wars anymore are sad humans who are hopelessly addicted to these movies as cinematic heroin.

Honestly, most millenial generation youth are too apathetic and too busy texting shit on their mobile devices for any kind of escapist pop culture to really exist anymore.

what the fuck did you faggots really expect? Nothing ever will live up to the original star wars trilogy. as for the prequels I thought they were pretty disappointing but there were scenes and moments in all three I loved. I'm a casual who doesn't take movies very seriously and I thoroughly enjoyed TFA. maybe I'm a pleb but I have too much other more important bullshit to worry about than sit around and have a nitpicking circle jerk about cinema autism.
