Remember those very long, harsh, funny, insightful critiques of Star Wars Episode I and II? Well, the guy is back to complete his trilogy.
Big language and content warning. I mean at one point the man pretends to have sex with an animal. It’s funny, but you don’t want to have to explain what the hell is happening to the kiddies.
It’s in three parts:
I think some of what he said is not actually valid. But a lot is. But to critique the critiquer, for instance, he didn’t seem to understand that while the original storm troopers were all clones, the ones in the original trilogy (IV-VI) were by then regular people. And I think on some level the relative peace that Coruscant enjoyed during all of this was kind of the point, too. None of this felt real to the people so what was a little endless war by people who were grown in vats and had no families that cared for them? And I think in general there is less to criticize here, because it is a better movie. It’s not as good as the originals, but some of it, imho was actually pretty good. Still the majority of his criticism hits home, especially the fact that Vader was too much the focus of the movie.
Hat tip: Red letter media.
