I saw plenty of faults, but all I cared about was the space ships, laser swords, robots, aliens, pew-pew, etc. The dry political plot didn't bother me. Jar Jar occasionally did stupid shit, but it only lasted a few seconds here and there, big fucking deal. I loved the originals (I was 8 when the first SW released) but I guess I never let them become a religion for me, because I liked the prequels too. They were very different, but still great in their own way. What I can't get into at all is the new trilogy from Disney. What a waste of time. But yes, the hype started in 1994 when Lucas first announced he was making a new trilogy and it got bigger and bigger until it was almost unbearable. When Ep. I finally released, obviously not everybody hated it, but the backlash HUGE and immediate. LOTS of people were extremely butthurt and very loud about it. I just shook my head and laughed at them for not being able to get over themselves. Slave will do fine. ITT: people who will be happier when they're dead. And those who know them will probably be happier too! =D One of this movie's claims to fame is that it didn't have much of a screenplay/script, per se. The vast majority was improvised, with the director and the actors collaborating. Why the fuck would you think you needed to point any of this out? It's all right there in plain sight in the movie. Anybody who's seen the movie already knows everything you posted. There was no point in posting any of that. Nobody ever said Brandon Teena was innocent. (Of course they said it in response after you posted, just to mess with you.) You were never interested in discussion, all you did was build a strawman so you could beat it up. I've still never seen Pearl Harbor. But I tried to watch Red Tails over the holiday, and I stopped about 45 minutes in and have no intention of ever going back. I can't remember the last time I did that. Normally, if I start a movie, I finish it, no matter how little I'm enjoying it, no matter how bad it is, no matter what. I was about 16 or 17 when it came out and didn't see it then, knew nothing about it beyond the title, had zero interest. About 10-15 years ago my sister gave me a copy on DVD for my birthday. Very random. I watched it and didn't think much of it and forgot all about it. I don't even remember what it was that made me want to see it again recently. I saw Criterion had released it on blu ray and bought it for some reason. I really loved it my second time around. Definitely intend to watch it again several times over the years. EDIT: I remember now- a few months ago I found out Su Tissue was is in it... that's what made me want to see it again. I didn't know who she was the first time. Hell no, I didn't feel bad for him. He was cruel and vicious and he deserved far worse. He absolutely had it coming. There's a shocker. lol at any asshole who would even attempt to take this movie seriously. It's as serious as a comic book. View all replies >
