- Yearly Star Wars from 2015… plus extra Yoda!
well judging by the last 3 and knowing he has sold it my expectations are
no real plot
Is utterly forgetable
Will add nothing of any real merit beyond money to someone’s bank account
I doubt i will be disappointed but the last three added little but did get better after the first which was DIREPosted 5 years ago
Did I see a different Revenge of the Sith to everyone else?
Apologies – I should have clarified. Revenge of the Sith, I reckon, is the best of the new movies. Since anything Disney does is clearly not going to be as good as the originals, I hope the 7th movie is as good as the Sith and isn’t another Attack of the *** Clones.Posted 5 years agounklehomeredSubscriber
See I actually rate them as follows, Menace > Sith > Clones. Menace at least hung together narratively, and had the least appalling script. I had not at this point seen any of the others so was not bound by any sentimental attachment to a higher standard, just the quality of the film. It also had the least horrendous script. Who decided Lucas should be allowed to write dialogue? Story, fine, he is good at that, no faulting it, but dialogue, no – never again.Posted 5 years ago
Later I saw the others and I realised why everyone was so upset.

Phantom Menace first?
My son likes that one, because it has a kid in it, plus lots of racing around deserts. Plus, he actually quite likes Jar Jar Binks. 😯 I know, I know. Clearly, George Lucas was thinking of the younguns with that one.Posted 5 years agoRo5eyMember

With all you mean… and thats why Disney stands half a chance… make a star wars for adults who look at the orginal with rose tinted specs on.
Really all 6 are rubbish as an adult (maybe Empire not quite so)Posted 5 years ago
Personally, I’m quite looking forward to the next one, hoping it’ll be as good as Revenge of the Sith… and not Disney-fied.
Will Han Solo still be a badass? Harrison Ford’s pretty crocked up these days. 🙁
Oh, and there’s going to be a stand-alone Yoda movie too, says BBC. Good I hope that will be.Posted 5 years ago
Or, more likely, the merchandising opportunities.
More than the originals though? The first three were merchandise-tastic.
My life as a seven-year-old was blighted by my mate having the Millennium Falcon open-top toy, and all the figures to go with it! Thinking about it, I wouldn’t mind one now that I’m properly adult. 😉Posted 5 years agostewartcSubscriber
Actually liked Attack of the Clones (well apart from the roman theatre bit near the end) so I base my level of expectation very low, even I shouldn’t be disappointed.
I say we need a Bobba Fett movie in between the planned 3 sequels, that would be far better than a standalone Yoda film (plus Yoda is not Yoda when done in CG).Posted 5 years agomattkMember
Nah, given that Boba is such a BAMF he’d have blasted his way out by now.
There are loads of novels that were written before Phantom Menace came out, that Fans pretty much took as an extension of the universe Lucas created. In one of them Boba Fett escapes and is rescued by another bounty hunter. He recovers and is still badass only with a gammy leg.
His background (in the novels) was much better, he was basically a dissaffected youngster turned bad. And im sure they hint at him being frustrated virgin too!
Obviously Lucas ignored all that fan stuff and rewrote Boba Fett into a doctor from Shortland Street. I preffered him before.Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I do like watching fanbois twitch… Obviously they don’t want Lucas making more star wars, he’s terrible. But nobody likes their franchise being sold to new management. But they still want more star wars, after all they’ve already got all the lego and about 500 paid-by-the-word novels. So which way do they twitch?
I quite liked the last 3 tbh. Much to dislike about them but they had their moments. It helped to see Phantom Menace with a small child, but one darth maul-renton-the dude lightsaber fight and all was forgiven.Posted 5 years ago
