"Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker" Trailer

Forums - Movies Discussion - "Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker" Trailer

Rey might be Mary Sue-ish but that alone isn't a deal breaker to me. Lots of successful pop-culture series have had protagonists with flat character arches (Son Goku comes to mind, Aragorn perhaps as well).

I agree with Aragorn yes but Son Goku had so much training to endure to become so strong although in Super he is kinda flat indeed.

I didn't have the time to offer my own views on the trailer as I had to leave for work shortly after I posted this thread, so...

Honestly, I'm excited. The trailer gave me goosebumps. And Lando's back! Of course, I was excited for every one of the new Star Wars movies as well. I saw all of them twice in theaters. I enjoyed all of them (even The Last Jedi, which I feel got a lot of undeserved hate from a vocal minority... and let's leave it at that, because I'm not interested in arguing about it anymore; I like the movie and that's that), and I've felt that they've been in every way better than the prequel trilogy. Better acting, better balancing between CGI and practical effects, better cinematography, etc. While nothing will ever beat the original trilogy for me, I've been thoroughly satisfied with how Disney has handled the films so far. Episode 9 will definitely be an opening weekend viewing for me.

Ohh no, we're not gonna leave it at that!

So you liked the movie? fine. So you think it got undeserved hate? Cool. To each its own I guess.

But trying to say that it was just a "vocal minority" who didn't like this movie is...  just...  no.

Just because he thinks a vocal minority gave it undeserved hate doesnt mean he thinks all criticism was undeserved.

I was not implying that...  but ok..  thanks for the input.

That's exactly what you did. You said "But trying to say that it was just a "vocal minority" who didn't like this movie is...  just...  no."

I may have phrased my last post poorly so I'll elaborate.

He didnt say everybody who disliked it belong to the vocal minority, he said it received undeserved hate from the vocal minority.

For example, let's say 90% of the people who dislike it had legitimate and constructive criticism. He is not talking about those people, he is talking about the 10% that are screaming from the rooftops criticizing every miniscule detail.

I'm not sure I'm following you...

He said: "even The Last Jedi, which I feel got a lot of undeserved hate from a vocal minority..."

I just took that as if he thinks that only a vocal minority disliked the movie. Which is exactly what I said when I said: "But trying to say that it was just a "vocal minority" who didn't like this movie is... just... no."

I might be wrong and that is not what he actually meant. But at no point did he (nor ME) said anything about the validity of the criticisms.



Darth Vader rises from the ashes and saves everyone. THE END.



Looking forward to it. That's all I have to say.

Yes, he said it got undeserved hate from a vocal minority but he never said everybody who hates/dislikes it belongs to the vocal minority. That's just an assumption you made.
