I agree. He certainly dropped the ball on the prequels and the remakes, up to a point, and I do think part of that is a lack of a good sounding board/people who can help with constructive critizism. But he definitely does have talented and managed to create some great things.
I really disliked the prequels and have only seen them once, but I still think he is/was a visionary and has inspired innovations in filmmaking. I was upset with him after the prequels, but I have chilled out a bit since then. My childhood wasn't raped; just offered some candy and a ride.
My only worry is that it'd be distracting.I am a little worried about Woody getting cast in the film.
Community actors should stay in their lane? What's wrong with them?And, Donald Glover. It's just weird to have iconic Lando being played by a guy from Community.
Childish Gambino is a goddamn national treasure.[DOUBLEPOST=1487722773,1487722723][/DOUBLEPOST]And, Donald Glover. It's just weird to have iconic Lando being played by a guy from Community.
My excitement over this is in the dirt. I am not liking the casting at all.
This is the Han Solo spinoff cast picture, btw.
Eh, mostly just Danny Pudi and Don Glover.At this point I feel kinda glad I've never watched Community, it sounds like their cast members keep popping up elsewhere and destroying immersion.
It was made all the more impossible to ignore because it so directly reminded me of the "Freaky Friday" community episode where Troy and Abed pretended to be each other for the whole episode.I thought Glover overacted in the The Martian too. And, yes, should have been Abed.
I just made a coworker flabbergasted by saying "This is Empire Strikes Back again, just like the last one was A New Hope again. Calling it now, the big reveal will be that Luke is Rei's father... and is also Snoke."Hmm...
Rey's reaction at the start of the trailer makes me think she also had a vision of something she didn't like. There's also Luke training Rey, Rey rushing off somewhere to do something lightsabery, Finn and Poe in peril, the good guys' base getting hit... all in all, it feels like they're aiming for the same story beats as Empire Strikes Back.
I'm probably wrong. I hope I'm wrong. After the criticism of how TFA was too similar to A New Hope, there's no way they'd make the same mistake again, right? Right?
That'd be crazy, but I kinda love it.I'm pretty sure Rei is a palpatine. There has always been a Skywalker and a Palpatine!
I find it harder and harder to get excited for these movies anymore.
Honestly, I was never really huge into Star Wars. I liked it well enough and enjoyed watching them, but I never went absolutely apeshit for them like many of my friends. Same as the two new ones. I liked them, but that's about it.I swear I typed that before you posted, but no one will ever believe me . You're feeling this way about things from your past; maybe there are new things you'd like better than old things that no longer do it for you. Things that were never scored by John Williams.
I *was* absolutely apeshit over all things Star Wars, in the 90s. You know, back when there were only 3 movies and every single one of the video games were awesome.Honestly, I was never really huge into Star Wars. I liked it well enough and enjoyed watching them, but I never went absolutely apeshit for them like many of my friends. Same as the two new ones. I liked them, but that's about it.
