Uhhhh, speak for yourself. Rogue One was amazing (to me at least) because of nostalgia and same old same old. Because it was the closest to the OT in feel and look than any other SW film since the OT. Because it was set literally in the time period of the first SW film. It was OT but cinematically looked far superior. I'm not even close to tired of it. I want mountains more of it. The further they stray from it, the less interested in it I become.SW has been SOOO reliant on nostalgia (forced and otherwise) that it is not sustainable. We don't want things changed, but we're tired of the same old same old.. impossible to please fans.
It would have been really hard (& quite awkward) to rewrite Leia since the movie was already filmed when she past. While they could have let her die on the ship, They would have to re-write the second half of the story.ILeia was supremely wasted in both movies though. Hell, she was sleeping for most of this after her Mary Poppins stunt.
I'll never understand what any of them were thinking with sidelining the OT cast as much as they did. I get it, you want to have the new younger people be the stars.. but come on, man.
To be fair both directors made the same mistake, the new characters played second fiddle to the OT cast & were never given the chance to shine.It doesn't help that the new characters are crap. A lot of the sidelining would have been forgiven had they written the noobs as people worth watching.
Yeah, if I hadn't written this bullshit off before, the butterfly light saber definitely would have been my moment. Jesus, there needs to be rules for lightsaber design. Moving on, we have a minute and a half of nostalgia bait, after they went through the whole "let the past die, kill it if you have to" spiel.Just no. At least CGI it so that it opens smoothly.
