She was fine. Mysterious. I'm sure we'll learn more. Yeah, it felt a bit incomplete, as if some of her scenes were rewritten or left on cutting room floor, but hardly "immersion ruining," unless your brain works in a way like "omg cannot wait to share this w my /tv/ bros."

Probably the most awful character design in the history of Star Wars film canon

That CGI orange took me out the movie completely.

A puppet would have boosted the immersion. Max just looked like a visual game character

It's the worst and most offensive character of all time in film.

were the chinamen offended by this thing?

>>65149361
Pretty much any character that exists just to provide exposition is pointless when you think about it. Alec Baldwin's scene in Glengarry Glen Ross is technically pointless and in fact the character isn't in the original play.
>>
>>65149636

> I'm sure we'll learn more.

This is JJ Abrams we are talking about here. He always puts unexplainable plot holes for convenience

There were supposed to be scenes where she was helping fend off the First Order and she was supposed to appear at the Resistance base at the end.

I didn't mind it but she was the part that reminded me most of the prequels
>>
>>65149636
>I'm sure we'll learn more

Kek. She's a blatant plot device. The only reason they'll bring her back is for terrible exposition before they kill her off.

You mean the grandpa that turned out to be the grand master of the jedi and actually had a big story impact for the movie he was in? The one that had a hand in training the hero of the story?


The space grandma was a 1000 year old exposition machine, not that Yoda didn't have that role as well but he still had a more active role in the movie.
>>

As a milquetoast white guy, I wasn't offended, but if I were Chinese I would find it childish at the very least. Lucas is a retard.

Edna warned us about capeshit. We should have listened.

>>65149969
Would a wookie fight a defenseless old woman, older than Yoda, if she slowly started feeling up his furry legs? What if she offered him a drink first? What if han was in trouble and the only way she would help the duo is if she got to let off some steam on poor chewy?

Guys... Chewy was fucking raped
>>
>>65150059
It's not made by Lucas so it's okay.
>>
>>65149361
She should have been replaced by Lando, think about it, it would have made more sense if he had the lightsaber, he is Han's buddy, the "HAN SOLO!" scene at the cantina would have been a fucking amazing reveal
>>
That "where's my boyfriend" line makes me cringe, especially because it's never brought up again. It was such a modern joke and made no sense out of context.
>>
>>65150142
No way!! This is the new generation of star wars and we can't keep giving roles of power to men. This is a woman's galaxy and we need to show that with more female roles that impact the plot development!
>>
>>65150142
It would've had even more sense if Leia had the saber and Maz and her cantina were written out completely.
>>
>>65150142
holy shit

>>65149636

That's because Nyong'o had difficulty understanding the character.

>>65150142

Why did Leia even get rid of the lightsaber anyway, makes 0 sense

It's the poorly done Chinese accents I think. It's just childish on Lucas' part.

Because you know everything you need to know about the character in two seconds. To the point it didn't need to be there at all.
>>
>>65150206
Jar Jar had a silly Jamaican accent. Trade Federation ayylmaos had cheesy asian accents. I don't find it offensive, it's just really cheap and kinda ruins the immersion.

Imagine if Darth Vader in IV spoke like a Nazi caricature from a comedy sketch.

Any rule 34 yet?

I don't see how that's any different than the empire sounding english, or the rebels sounding american. Accents exist. There's nothing cheap about using them. How silly would it be if they just invented some legit silly sounding made up accents? It would be worse.
>>

Yeah, how many times have I heard that one?

Also >>65150079

Star Wars movies are the epitome "underdeveloped" and "making it up as you go."

You can all complain all you want about the rest of the movie, but she's the only thing I really have a bone to pick with. Totally took me out of the movie.

>>65149973
"Meeting with the oracle" is a part of the Campbell's monomyth, it's an even older story.
>>
>>65150924
Well they made up languages for most of the aliens in the original trilogy (Chewie, Greedo, Ponda Baba, Jabba and his underlings, the Jawas, Nien Nunb...)
The only alien from the OT who spoke english was Ackbar I think.
>>
>>65149788
These guys look 10x better than that CGI abomination
>>
>>65150924
The isn't isn't accents. the issue is absurd/ridiculous accents. Jarjar has an absurd/ridiculous caricature of a Jamaican accent. The prequel space-chinks have an absurd/ridicilous caricature of asian accents.

If the alderan scene had tarken walking on set with an absurd caricature of a british accent, against leia, who had the most absurd southern drawl imaginable, would you have been able to take that scene seriously? The answer is no. To the extent that no one would've even remembered the movie a month later.
>>
>>65151039

Ya now that I think about it it's kinda lazy I guess. Still don't see the racism though.
>>
>>65151041
...they are also CGI abominations.
>>
this shit was way worse than OP's. Yoda dies before he can tell Luke what he so desperately wants to know, then Obi Wan just comes out and conveniently explains literally everything
>>
>>65150695
A different accent would change that? What the fuck
>>
>>65151105
Possibly because you are the only person mentioning racism.
>>
>>65151068

Some chinese people sound like those aliens when they speak english. On the other hand Jar Jar doesn't even fucking sound Jamaican. They just both use broken english so there's similarities.

good for you.
>>
>>65151259
I see the point, I just thought 'I can tell everything about this character because of the accent' was a really stupid comment.

If it helps, yes. The accents were weird as fuck.
>>
>>65151039
Half the alien languages were just African languages. And they actually did have the conversations, which means if you can speak whatever language that alien is speaking you can follow the dialogue perfectly.

Apparently it was really well received in the places in Africa they took the languages from, audiences went nuts for it. I guess it's nice to hear your own language being spoken in a big film.

While I find her to be a shit character and distracting from the story, I think lessening immersion in the film was one of her intended purposes. She's situated dead center in the film, and after all the shit that happened on Jakku and the Millennium Falcon the audience wants to take a breather and step back from the "serious" aspect of the movie for a little bit. This is distinct from comedic relief (which was mostly filled by Finn and BB-8) as this serves as more of a modern day version of the intermission, while still advancing the plot. Mazz's scene was a good time for audience members to leave the theater to get a snack or go piss. Even if they somehow take longer than ten minutes and the movie starts picking up again, the only thing they might have missed can be explained in a three word sentence by an audience member (Rey gets captured). If she hadn't of been fucking orange she would have fulfilled her purpose.
>>

>>
>>65149595
To be fair in Star Wars there are tons of aliens and rich people who routinely live for centuries.
>>
>>65152090
Probably because the movie already relied so much on nostalgia that I don't think you could take a kid to watch it as their first star wars.

say what you will, at least the prequels didn't fuck up by making what is essentially a kids/all ages movie unfriendly for the new generation to use as an entry point.
>>
>>65150203
I agree, the design of Jar Jar's SPECIES was not bad by any metric of judgment. Jar Jar himself, however, was awful. He looked like a fucking semi retarded fumbling eight foot tall bunny rabbit in hobo clothes, so Maz wins in character design if we include character execution.
>>
>>65152323
Yeah, but it wouldn't even be shoehorned nostalgia. It literally makes the most sense out of any possible scenario.
>>
>>65152401
Yeah, but when you're busy trying to shoehorn in more nostalgia than is needed you have to cut out the organic nostalgic moments.

" It’s a general problem with the movie, it all plays out on rails so as to re-animate the first movie. Nothing happens organically. Instead of “The Force Awakens” it should have been “Episode VII: the same old hope.” If I had more pomo cred, there would be a point to be made here about everything being self-referential, and audiences caring more about familiarity (and reclaiming the first trilogy’s feel) than genuine drama." is a better way of putting it than I could.

Honestly I don't think there was that much shoehorned nostalgia in this movie. The only things that really stood out to me were some of the scenes inside the Millennium Falcon, the "another Death Star" joke, and Rey's line about the Millennium Falcon being garbage. The last one was especially bad because it doesn't suit Rey's character at all. Even if she didn't know the ship belonged to Han Solo (which she should have because she was a huge history buff and fucking knew the long line of smugglers it passed between through theft), she should have realized it was something special when she went inside and saw all the tricked out shit Han Solo had installed in it decades earlier. She even commented about how the Falcon had been riced up by some previous owner, so it's obvious she was quite familiar with it.
>>
>>65150013
To be fair, that still sounds like the "learn more" thing.
>>
>>65150142
Nah, just have them directly go to Leia or Leia meeting them up there and giving Rey the lightsaber. It makes much more sense for her to sense the force thing and giving the lightsaber.

That whole Maz scene was really pointless
