Oh, okay.

I'm a fan of the classic Star Wars, but after giving the new ones a try, I've sort of given up on the latest films in the series. Maybe I'll give the new one a shot, I don't know yet.

And, thanks for answering my question.

Disney in charge of Star Wars...

I'm not even a Star Wars fan, and even I know it's going to be horrid.
User avatar #2 to #1 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
FFS, It is produced by Walt Disney Studios. Though I assume if you think it will be trash because it was produced by Disney then you must have hated the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, both Thors, all three Iron Mans, and both Captain Americas?

Also, they're really MILKING the fact that they bought the franchise. Disney is making Star Wars crossovers with EVERY POPULAR SHOW THEY HAVE.
User avatar #7 to #4 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Yeah, but they spent 4 billion on them, they are more than welcome to do crossovers to make some of that money back. Big investment.

Disney makes an est. 35 bil a year. Buying star wars was change.
User avatar #54 to #52 - trollchildxy (08/08/2014) [-]
Is that pure profit? Or gross income? Also I would like some kind of a source on that number.
User avatar #10 to #7 - scootabot (08/07/2014) [-]
Well, I doubt they're going to get their money's worth really. Not doing crossovers, at least.

They'll get most of their money through selling new toys and games.

I'm not even allowed to have this big of an opinion on something like this. I'm not an avid fan of Star Wars, but I know enough to think it's interesting. As I grow older, I begin to appreciate it a little more.
User avatar #50 to #10 - commontroll (08/08/2014) [-]
Not going to make their money's worth? Dude, they have a new trilogy being made of one of the most financially successful movie series of all time but now they don't have to blindly follow every retarded idea George Lucas ***** out, they've got a new sequel to one of the most successful and beloved video games (Star Wars Battlefront 3 confirmed) and will get money from every Extended Universe novel and comic book made after they purchased it due to legal rights, and they have the rights to Star Wars The Old Republic and any other games made in the Old Republic era, which odds are Bioware will make another Knights of the Old Republic.

TL;DR: They're gonna make bank.
User avatar #69 to #50 - scootabot (08/08/2014) [-]
ok
User avatar #12 to #10 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
How old are you?

I think their plan is to make a new trilogy, that's what i've heard at least. And if the first one does good (Simply because it's star wars I'd say they can expect to make 500 mil or so) enough, they can probably expect to get a huge following and maybe even break the 1bil barrier for a movie. They will make a lot of their money back through that, and the rest through franchising and merchandising.
User avatar #16 to #12 - scootabot (08/07/2014) [-]
Old enough to know what Star Wars is.

I've seen all of the movies and I remember a bit of them. My dad was a big Star Wars fan, but I leaned more towards Lord of the Rings, and stuff. Swords and Magic.

I didn't start appreciating the Futuristic Genre until later. I'm a young adult, as of now.
User avatar #19 to #16 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
I was actually the same way, I was all Fantasy (LOTR, Forgotten Realms, DragonLance) and now as i've gotten older I love Sci-Fi (Warhammer 40k, Star Wars, and Dr.Who)
User avatar #20 to #19 - scootabot (08/07/2014) [-]
Yeah! Doctor Who actually got me into the 'Futuristic' age of Fantasy. I saw posts on FJ about it, and I wondered if I should give it a shot.

I had no idea why, but I used to HATE Doctor Who. I always told myself I wouldn't like it.

Yadda yadda... Watch first episode of the relaunch with the 9th Doctor...

Based on what I'm given so far, I'm not suspecting great things out of Disney Produced Star Wars.
User avatar #6 to #5 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Well I may not be exactly excited, its mostly about what they have said so far about the plot of the movie. It seems like it might be bland, but i like the idea of them going back to older production methods, something more akin to the older movies with special effects touched up with modern CGI would be really pleasing to me.
User avatar #9 to #6 - scootabot (08/07/2014) [-]
I'm not one that typically goes and watches Star Wars movies. If they're on, I'll listen in, but I won't be genuinely invested in what's going on.

Everyone has been on the internet or heard the plot from someone from somewhere in their lives at least once, so I don't really need to watch them to get a grasp on what's happening in a general sense.

As far as what's going on with the new movie, I have absolutely zero clue. I've not seen them talk about it, but Star Wars has made some pretty huge blunders in the past.

Star Wars Holiday Special.

I think that'd be nice to have a MODERN Star Wars movie, it'd be something I'd watch, even if it was made by Disney. I could either watch it and really enjoy it, or enjoy it with a good laugh while pointing out all of the stupid things they did.

Either way, not looking forward to it, but I'll watch it if I can.
User avatar #11 to #9 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Basically, if i were you, i wouldn't see it in theaters. Wait for it to come out on BDisk and watch it at home with some friends or something. It's not worth the 12 bucks to see a movie that you have such low expectations of in theater.
User avatar #14 to #11 - scootabot (08/07/2014) [-]
Yeah, that's what I meant. If it's out at Theaters, I'd probably save my money for something better.

But if it's on DVD and I've got a free night? Sure, I'll watch it.

With a buddy, drinks, and snacks. Just in case if it's not as it's all cracked up to be.
User avatar #15 to #14 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Exactly, heckle the movie (if its ****** ) with some buddies over some drinks. Or enjoy a good movie with friends.

Hell, maybe we'll all hear about how great it was a week after it comes out and decide to give it a chance in theaters?
User avatar #17 to #15 - scootabot (08/07/2014) [-]
Yeah! Totally. See, I thought that Guardians of the Galaxy would be a little iffy. I've never heard of them before and I thought it was just another ploy to milk Marvel for what they got.

Though, I've been hearing good things... I'll give it a shot if I can.

That's how I work, mostly. I watch if it peaks my interest.

2 of the Iron Men movies were atrocious and both Thors were bland and boring. Half of the MCU is pretty bad. But yea, the other half is stellar

None of that matters though. Disney wasn't responsible for those particular films sucking. I expect the new Star Wars to be great

Not baiting at all. Those movies in particular are not very good at all
User avatar #25 to #24 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Well you're entitled to your opinion, but I'd argue the money speaks for itself with those movies.

I'll grant that only the first iron man truly held my interest.
#27 to #25 - bluemagebrilly ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
The money movies get are not about how 'good' they were, it was about how desired they were. No one except the creators knows what a movie is like without seeing it in theaters. Or by pirating it but that doesn't really count and most movies are safe for the first few weeks.

Avatar: The Last Air Bender, for instance, sold a lot of tickets and a lot of people went to see it... and it was bad. It was desired and sold to a lot of people, but the movie itself was not good.
User avatar #29 to #27 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
The Last Airbender 2010 is a bad example to use, it grossed roughly 131 million whereas these "bad" movies (to examplify some) made the following. Now with that data apparently Thor isn't nearly as marketable as, say, iron man but I personally enjoyed Thor more than those movies. So it really seems I agree with you, because Iron Man is funnier, it gets more money. But I will say this, had The Last Airbender been good, it likely would have broke 200 mil. Why do i say this? Because I didn't go to see it in theaters because I heard how bad it was. Same with Dragonball: Evolution

Iron Man 2: 312 mil
Iron Man 3: 409 mil
Thor: 181 mil
Thor TDW: 206 mil

131 million is /still/ a lot of money. Yes, it got way less money than it could have if it was good, but the point is that a lot of people still went to see it.    
   
Movies are really a matter of opinion, I can't say any of the Iron Man movies look all that interesting to me, but there are a lot of Iron Man fans who will see it simply to see it. And then there are others who see it because they enjoy it. But on the flip side, there are less people who can say they'd enjoy Thor.    
   
 At least from what I've heard. For some reason, Thor doesn't get the same praise Iron Man does.    
   
Money is just not the best way to judge a movie. All those darn Harry Potter films sold a huge amount, but they were pretty 'meh' to me. Especially Dumbledore's acting.  DID YOU PUT YAH NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIAH?

In the defense of dumbleydoor, it was also the director giving him those ****** lines/scene changes. But yeah that was a pretty ******** acted "upset and exhasperated" on his part.

I agree but still feel that the Thor movies were really good, hoping that Ragnarok redeems the Thor franchise monetarily what with Ragnarok being a interesting villain.
#33 to #32 - bluemagebrilly ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
Well, I'm glad you enjoyed them. I can't say much on them because I have not seen it. I do not really watch many 'comic' movies. Didn't grow up with any comics, so I never got into it.  Admittedly, I have seen the Batman and Spiderman movies because my parents would take me to see them.      
   
I'm also slightly sure the actor himself (on Dumbledore that is) said he 'never read the books' or was that director? Either way it was rather silly and at least someone should have been like 'Er, that's not right, sir.'

I think it was the director, and the issue from what I was told was that JK Rowling sold them the rights, and in that license they had creative freedom. They could have made harry a woman from what I was told.
#39 to #37 - bluemagebrilly ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
That would probably be more interesting than just making the acting bad. Creating a whole new series with the books would have been better than just stealing their fame.   
   
Pretty big oversight on JK's part, in my opinion.

I love how only in the case for Marvel movies that this excuse is allowed. I do not mean to lash out at you personally, it is just a pet peeve of mine and I'd like to get this off my chest

Money also talked for the Transformer movies. Do you really want to defend them too? Same thing for the Harry Potter franchise to a lesser extent. Did some of those movies REALLY deserve all that praise, despite how good the best in that series were? So why are the Marvel movies any different?

The Captain America movies, Avengers, GotG, the first Iron Man, are all fantastic

Incredible Hulk was just ok

The rest were forgettable or outright bad

User avatar #28 to #26 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Mmm.... Yeah I do suppose you're right actually. the first transformers was great. The rest were trash (Haven't seen the newest one but i can only assume...) As for Harry Potter, while they changed a lot from the books, they only changed small things that didn't much bother me. If you look at the harry potter movies independently and without considering the story text, they were great movies with a great story...

I do wish that harry and voldemort'd had their original final duel where harry professed the amazing series of events that actually made him the true master of the elder wand, not voldemort. I also wish that he had placed it in dumbledore's tomb like he had in the book and only used the wand to repair his original broken wand.

As for the movies, Incredible Hulk was just okay like you said... The only movies i didn't LOVE were Iron Man 2 and 3, which were kinda just okay. But Thor and Thor:TDW I have to say i completely disagree with you.

But to each their own, i'm super excited for the possibility of a hulk movie with mark ruffalo. Probably the best hulk since bill bixby.
User avatar #31 to #28 - metajunky (08/07/2014) [-]
I will agree with you on Hulk. The possibility of a Planet Hulk/World War Hulk is exciting

Most of the Harry Potter movies problems are probably the same as the original books' problems Most of the books kind of played out the same. There are a few plotholes that could use some explaining. And Harry himself is just a boring character Daniel's acting wasn't that great though. And why exactly are CoS, HBP, and DH1 so praised (from a movie standpoint)?

Thor 1 had great effects and some enjoyable moments, but did we really need another fish-out-of-water story. Thor is popular in the comic book world for the ******* crazy things he can do and the scale of the adventures he finds himself in. So yea, let's focus on him in some small town with Natalie Portman

Thor 2 was just...boring. Loki is cool again, but I honestly do not remember much at all about it. Something about an ancient power the Dark Elves were trying to get? The final fight scene was the only highlight I remember because of how they teleported around, but nothing else comes to mind other than feeling bored throughout it and how annoying Kat Dennings was. The villain sucked too. Seriously, it's Loki and Red Skull. That's it for memorable villains from this universe
User avatar #34 to #31 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Planet Hulk would be so amazing, and a great way for them to introduce another entirely different culture of aliens. Would be a great way to introduce Skaar as a possible replacement for Mark Ruffalo without butchering the look of hulk once again.

I grew up on the harry potter books and never read them as an adult so i missed a lot of the plot holes, but i suppose that's why they were kids (and after GOF, teen) books. Daniel was a terrible actor IMO, but he looked the part so they just winged it. Hermione was a good actor but not "ugly" enough, she was always average and is still kind of average (just being a red makes her hotter i guess?)

As for the Thor movies, i really just appreciate the nuances of Loki's evolution into a villain, but how you can see he deep down is trying to fight something. Granted i feel like Thor was kind of bland. I also wish star-wars bitch (natalie portman, terrible actress IMO) wasn't in those movies. They would have been far better with a different actress.

I suppose for the Thor movies i focused a lot less on the villains and more on the interactions between Thor, Loki, and Odin. Those are really the things from those movies i enjoy.
User avatar #35 to #34 - metajunky (08/07/2014) [-]
Well I will concede Loki is great, and probably the best character in the universe alongside Cap. I was genuinely shocked by Thor 2's ending too, not so much Loki being alive but the fact that he is impersonating a supposedly missing Odin. Where the hell is he, and what does this mean for the overall story?
User avatar #36 to #35 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Well, Loki actually spent some time on the throne of Asgard and Thor had to come back and take it back from him. (Entire comic book series about that) As for what hes doing impersonating Odin and where the hell Odin is? I have no idea, I've thought about reading about it but I have done that with every single one of the Marvel movies and have decided to leave myself a little bit of a surprise.

I agree, Loki is probably one of the most relatable characters in the universe (inb4: Yeah relating to a god, soooo relatable) but look at his life? He finds out he's adopted and is trying to re-find a niche for himself in the family. It's a pretty ****** up situation to be in, especially when its been obvious for years Thor was the favorite, and the adopted bit is only salt in that wound.

In short, i hope to see more of Loki because he's one of the greats in this universe.

I never watched any of those, except for the Avengers.

I'm saying that it's going to suck because I'm seeing the **** that they're playing out for the kids. They always find a way to make it better for the adults, because they're the ones paying for it.

I've seen what the kids are going to see, and I'm not thrilled. Something called ...

Star Wars: Rebels

It's their basic Disney kid-show algorithm that'll just be another 'good guy always wins' kind of ******** .

I'm judging on what I've seen so far, not blind opinion.

Hell, if I'm proven wrong and this **** happens to be alright, then I'll watch it. No problem. If it's not, I'm not going to say I told you so.
User avatar #8 to #3 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
Well if the show is going to be thrown at kids ofcourse the good guys have to always win. I know what you mean for them basically spoon-feeding kids the typical cookie-cutter crap but its to be expected. Basically I'm just saying if you go into the film thinking it is going to be horrible, no matter what you will have a mostly negative opinion about it. If you go in indifferent or with only a little doubt about it, then you will likely be pleasantly surprised and be able to enjoy the film.

At least that's how I plan to go into the movie, I personally think star wars fits better in writing than on the big screen to begin with. But here's to hoping.
User avatar #13 to #8 - scootabot (08/07/2014) [-]
Well, this isn't the first time they went down the 'Star Wars animation' route.

But I actually enjoyed Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

I'm just thinking that they're going to pull the punches and really demean the memory of what Star Wars -was-.

I mean, if they can make it the way that most had gotten used to it, then great! I'll eat my own words. But based on what I'm given... The future seems a little bleak.
User avatar #18 to #13 - trollchildxy (08/07/2014) [-]
I loved Clone Wars, bit feel it shouldn't have gone on for so long. It felt like they started to run dry of material and kept repeating the biggest annoyance of the whole thing, which was (at least this is how i feel) having to reel back where they were taking the story, and shove it back in line so that it fit in line with the 4-6th movies.

It's like they were making a really detailed piece of clay pottery and would get some really unique shapes into it and some amazing geometry, but then smash it back into a more uniform pot-shape so that it fit along-side all of the other pots (movies).
