>Page-turners they were not.

Setting aside all the criticisms people have of this scene. Anyone else bothered by the modern terminology? Neither the OT or PT used words like "page-turners." It takes me out of the movie.

Tatooine is also nowhere, it's even the same sort of desert shithole as Jakku.

Luke saying that would both be still saying Jakku is nowhere, as well as show humility at the same time. It even sets up possibility of Rey and Luke bonding down the line over their somewhat similar origin.

You know, it's kind of interesting that /tv/ has pushed the "anti-quip mentality" so hard that even normies are complaining about quips in TLJ when they didn't even notice them in TFA.

Can we get them to hate quips in Marvel movies, too?
>>
>>93133739
Tatooine is only "nowhere" according to whiny 19 year old Luke who's upset Uncle Owen won't let him go to to flight school. It has at least three major cities in the films (Anchorhead, Mos Espa, Mos Eisley) and the Hutt Cartel is one of the major crime syndicates with intergalactic influence.

Jakku is literally a dead world that only has people on it because people tried to get rich off the salvage from the battle between the New Republic and the Empire. Nima outpost is the ONLY settlement on the planet.

Why did Yoda show then?

Did never Yoda or Ben ever show up after RotJ in Luke's life? If they did, was it all to no consequence or even mention?

Why didn't they try to talk to Rey if they could? Why not Kylo?

Did Anakin and Luke ever talk?

Why does Kylo worship Darth Vader? He still exists as Anakin's ghost, can they just not talk? Why?


Why did Yoda show up when Luke is about to burn some apparently admissible Jedi text and not to fucking stop him for trying to murder one of his pupils the fucking nanosecond he felt that?

what bothers me is that apparently the jedi had a bunch of books to teach their philosophy with, despite it always being passed on from master to apprentice without a single hint of reading material anywhere in all the other movies.

like, they expected me to care even a little bit about something that they invented out of whole cloth for this movie, and appear to have invented purely so that rey can become a good jedi without ever fucking learning from an actual jedi like luke.

One could wonder why all the dead Jedi (or at least the ones good enough to come back as a force ghost) don't stack up in numbers over the years and just stick around teaching people stuff they've learned

Thus, it seems to me that either it's
A. Kind of hard to come back from the netherworld of the force, and they only save it for special times
B. They are not supposed to interfere that much with the living word (by some jedi code or something
or
C. they have found at the end of life that there is some cycle to the living world which they do not need to interrupt, a kind of higher understanding of the workings of the universe, so they only help out a little bit sometimes, or when it is needed, like Qui-Gon visting Obi-Wan on Tatooine

"rendezvous" was said in Empire Strikes Back. It's like one of the last words spoken in the movie. Odd that you remembered it being said in a video game from over 10 years ago over Empire Strikes Back.

I also think that might have been the first time the word Tatooine was spoken out loud, but I could be wrong.

Pretty strange that they'd use a word like 'force', which is derived from the Latin word 'strong', when the Romans don't exist in Star Wars canon

>>93135985
There are characters with French accents in Star Wars so it stands to reason that a French analogue exists somewhere in the galaxy, just like Coruscant is an analogue for England (Leia's British accent in ANH is explained in canon as a put-on "Coruscanti" accent), Neimoidians are clearly Japanese, Gungans are Jamaican or something, etc.

there's literally no reason for the characters to be speaking English and using modern phrases AT ALL in the films. Why would they speak the same language that's the 2nd most spoken language by 1 species on a planet that doesn't even exist in the Star Wars universe, specifically a language that has evolved over centuries to resemble what it does today? There is no reason.

Even in the Expanded Universe they implied that earth animal species exist in the SW universe, but only on planets with large human populations. The official novel of A New Hope even makes reference to Luke having had a dog when he was a kid.

It makes sense, really-- however it is that humans ended up in the Star Wars galaxy, they probably brought some species of earth animals with them. When they settle on planets they bring earth animals with them to make the environment more earth-like, such as the ducks on Naboo. Ducks are almost definitely not a native species to Naboo, but they were brought there by human settlers and they managed to fit in to the ecosystem comfortably-- possibly displacing a local species in the process, but the humans didn't care.

Yes. It was completely anachronistic, in a sense. Same with the opening prank call.

That said, I always found Aunt Beru's clothing in Star Wars a bit weird, and Luke and friends reminded me more of 1940's Hollywood than a feudal era.

But it did feel really weird seeing more Marvel-esque contemporary elements awkwardly shoved into The Last Jedi.

I think that's actually the official explanation, or at least one that was claimed to have been the official explanation at some point.
Something about Star Wars being a story recounted from the Chronicle of the Whills or something like that, some story from the archives of the Super Jedi of the future.
A.I. tier existential Episode XII directed by Lucas where the sages reassemble the Star Wars saga by downloading the memory banks of the by then ancient and decrepit C-3PO and R2 never.
>>
>>93138930
>A.I. tier
I don't get it, was A.I. really that spectacular of a film?
>>
>>93138976
I meant the tier in the sense of the ending specifically.

That being said, most of the negative criticisms I heard of the movie include some variation of "Why did the Robots act so human, if this one robot was supposed to be the only one that's actually human?" which showed they didn't understand the relatively simple core point of the movie, namely that there is no magic element that makes the robots human, except the belief that they're human. The kid's only special in that people look at his differently.
I don't know how some people didn't get that. I mean it's literally Robot Pinnochio, and at no point did Pinnochio need the Blue Fairy to be a real boy, except in the physical sense. He lived and learned just as a real boy would from day one, and the story was about him earning his place in the world, by becoming a good person, instead of succumbing to vices.
>>
>>93138930
Reminds me of how Macross is explained as being re-enactments of the actual events which is a clever way of handwaving plot inconsistencies between the different series. If Star Wars used that explanation I bet there'd be a lot less petty nitpicking.

Back in Legends they were going to do a story that explains that the Humans and earth life in the Star Wars Galaxy came from people fleeing the setting of THX 1138 (Which is a dystopian future earth) who fall through a space-time portal thing and and up in and end up long ago, far away, yada-yada.

How does that make sense, considering Star Wars is in a galaxy far far away? Does any Star Wars canon ever leave the galaxy?

Big universe, ducks can exist.

>>93137532
Here's the thing: you're overthinking it.

Basically to reconcile this, we assume that, somehow, through sheer utter coincidence, a long time ago in a galaxy far far away ducks evolved and they call them the same word we do.

That's how I wrap my head around earth-based terms used in Star Wars at least. Naturally it strains suspension of disbelief but it's the only way you really can think about it.

Panface McGookygook was there to appeal to Chinese audience, was Force-Ghost Yoda there to appeal to the American market?
>>
>>93139864
Holy shit, that is true. Disney's Star Wars is so irritating. Everything about it feels like a normie's take on Star Wars.

I knew I was right to feel dread when I heard that new Star Wars movies were being made after all these years. The franchise was best left to the superfans writing books and making video games to cater to other superfans. Now everything is so sterile and attempts to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

It could have been an awesome line if delivered with some self awareness. Luke is a hick from Tatooine; the two could have bonded over both being losers from desert fuckhole planets.

Mark Hamill is talented enough that I'm sure he realized this but there was very little that he could do with Rian Johnson at the helm.

He could've cracked himself up delivering the line. Just a bit of a wry smile would have helped. Rian can always ask for more takes but it really comes down to which of the two is more stubborn.

Apparently Hamill fought every step of the way, it's just that Star Wars new rodent overlords decided this was the way things will be done.
>>
>>93140367
>it really comes down to which of the two is more stubborn.
I would think the guy whose livelihood is at stake would be decidedly less stubborn.

And you just admitted yourself that no matter how many times he delivered the line better, all it took was Rian Johnson using this bad take.

Did you know that Gary Oldman's "EVERYONE!" was literally from a joke take? That's an example of it turning out positively but it supports my point.

>>
>>93140528
All true of course. I don't really know enough about Johnson to say whether he's known to pull stuff like that.

Didn't know about Oldman but all of George C. Scott's stuff in Strangelove is fabled to be from gag takes. The story is Kubrick encouraged him to goof off to help get into character and then used the takes without his knowledge.

>>93136906
Lol what the fuck? Did Nolan choreograph this?
>>
>>93140887
>During the filming, Kubrick and Scott had different opinions regarding certain scenes, but Kubrick got Scott to conform largely by repeatedly beating him at chess, which they played frequently on the set. Scott, a skilled player himself, later said that while he and Kubrick may not have always seen eye to eye, he respected Kubrick immensely for his skill at chess.

I don't see the problem. He gets deflected and backs away in a defensive stance. There's another webm where one of them literally runs around in a circle which is actually bad so I don't know why it's not that webm instead.

Is this the first time ever we see a book in the series? Not to mention reading.

Are you fucking serious? No.

That's what I typed at first but then I looked it up and realized you are correct.

>>93143285
Probably why we never hear about page turner because they don't have book market

But I think they read what they need to from screen.
>>
>>93137954
Regardless if there are lore angels its still pretty out of universe
>>
>>93143388
Okay so that confirms that page turner is a stupid word choice. Because physical books are not prevalent enough in the universe for "page turners" to plausibly become a common phrase that both Luke and Yoda would be familiar with.
>>
"God speed!"
>>
>>93143420
I keep seeing this complaint. This idiotic farking complaint. This stupid, thoughtless, dumb complaint.

First of all, let me tell you the definition of "godspeed" -

godspeed: "a prosperous journey"

So it wasn't used incorrectly. We can scratch that concern off the list. That means that the issue these mouth-breathing jackholes have with "godspeed" is that it has the word "god" in it.

And I have to ask: What's wrong with that?

We've already seen that several planets in the Star Wars galaxy are home to people who believe in gods. Ewoks thought 3PO was a god. The Nightsisters referred to the force abilities they used as "magic", although they stopped short at god-worship. The Mandalorians had gods for most of their long history. Quinlan Vos referred to Asaaj Ventress as "a goddess of love and war and hope and ecstasy." (and yes, this is in canon materials).

Count Dooku once refered to Florrum as "a godforsaken planet". Jar-Jar says "Demanded by the gods, it is!" when he swears a life-debt to Qui-Gon (and there's all sorts of evidence that the gungans worship gods). On Mortis "incredibly powerful" force-wielders are referenced to be "god-like".

And if all that doesn't convince you, don't forget that Luke says "Oh, god! My uncle! How am I ever going to explain this?" way back in A New Hope.

So clearly, all the butt-hurt over Admiral Holdo saying "godspeed" is just that: Idiotic, nitpicking butt-hurt.

There is no joke, "page-turners" is just a term used for a particularly interesting book. The problem is that it sounds out of place in Star Wars.

How about I just stay butthurt about them casually reverting back to Rebel status instead? At least Return of the Jedi just ended on a victory celebration. The further-reaching ramifications and the rebuilding of the Republic allowed fans to let their imaginations run wild with what the future would bring. TFA has the not-Empire take out the heart of the Republic and the not-Rebels take out the not-Empire's single biggest asset, then in the blink of an eye, the not-Empire's back in charge. Instantly. What a profound lack of imagination and creativity went into nu-Wars. It's infuriating and awe-inspiringly fucking stupid.

same with prank phone call and yo mama joke. as far as we know you cannot put someone "on hold" via holocall. well, i guess you can say yo mama jokes, but that looks retarded in star wars.

also, hackers / crackers / code breakers etc. are called slicers in this universe. they don't use words like "slicer" or "slice" even one in the fucking movie. what a piece of garbage.
>>
>>93145786
That shit felt like an out-take from fucking Spaceballs.

They actually use the word slice, but in the context of 'slicing into the dreadnought shields' so their ship can get through, so they managed to fuck it up even further

From Middle English phrase God spede (“may God cause you to succeed”)

Sure some civilizations might follow some other religion that has a god or some gods but those guys don't follow the force or whatever you call it. Now in the OT we clearly see and hear that the rebels follow Jedi teachings to some degree and maybe even worship the force. So for a commander to say godspees sounds wrong. Should havw just said nay the force be with tou

The quality you're all talking around without saying it is "tone." Johnson's dialogue is like listening to Roman Centurions calling each other "bro" and "dawg." We already know that they wouldn't have been speaking English, but we expect them to speak with an air of dignity appropriate to the tone and the subject matter. This is something that goes beyond specific words and phrases. It's a lack of reverence, and it makes his tone all wrong.

Which is why he deserves to be stabbed in the face with a soldering iron.

It bugged me when Poe said "Big-ass" too.

>>93133036
Not at all. In fact, except in very few examples, a goofy, dominant universe-specific vernacular almost always makes me cringe. I mean, is it any more strange that the characters are speaking English at all?
>>
>>93143445
Well done, there are indeed people that believe in gods in Star Wars. No, "godspeed" as a phrase does not fit in Star Wars. It's like the boss orc saying "we are legion" in the last(?) Hobbit movie, which is a direct Bible quote. "Godspeed" is too specifically an Earth thing.

Because people noticed it proves me right. It really was noticeably out of place.
>>
>>93143445
"Godspeed anon" is one of our favorite sayings here. Why WOULDNT we love it?
>>
>>93133036
Haven't seen it yet but while an idiom like that probably wouldn't register, I'm bothered now that I noticed in another thread that Hux's first name is Armitage. Most of the names in ST are kind of generic but that's way, way too Englishey.
