By this year we will have had ten SW films in 41 years. I’m not sure if that’s too much.

I think eight Fast & Furious movies since 2001 is too much. Hell, one is too much!

Seven Star Wars films for me.  I, II, and III don't exist for me.

So you count the shitty disney star wars movies but you do not count George Lucas episode 1,2 and 3 that is a part of the story 4,5 and 6? It´s people like you that made George sell the rights of Star Wars to Disney, its because people like you that destroyed Star Wars.

:LMAO:

I didn’t know toymaker had that much influence!!!

That much power!!!

Hey toymaker, since you’re the kind of people that can destroy an entire film franchise, can you destroy the Transformers franchise? I’d appreciate it. :popcorn:

Not it's not people like him who made Lucas sell the rights. It was Disney offering him four billion dollars for it. He would have been stupid to turn down the offer. It's also not people like toymakers fault that the recent films aren't as good. He had nothing to do with the making of them. That's the idiot script writers and director who don't know how to make a good cohesive movie. I'm just referring to the newest one myself. The issue with the franchise is now there will be too many different directors getting in on the Star Wars thing and that's what will ruin it. George Lucas is not calling all the shots anymore so there will be no clear direction for a number of these movies going forward.

No no no, toymaker was behind everything. He’s the Palpatine of TRF! :hail:

If you guys did not know it. In the 90s, when George had released episode 1,2 and 3.  He got a lot of shit, people followed him and said that he had ruined their childhood. People that called them self for fans. And people are still talking shit about episode 1,2 and 3. Even tho it is many years ago since they was made. And this made George tired of people talking shit about his movies. George have said this in interviews. So that is why he sold the rights to Disney! Not because of the money, because he could earn that on his own, with making more movies!

The prequels make no sense at all in the universe that the OG created.  The prequels created so many plot holes and inconsistencies that they’re tough to bear.

The prequels had one main job - show how Anakin Skywalker turned into Darth Vader.  The sub-plots (the fate of Padme, Obi-wan, and Yoda) were also addressed.  In that context, the prequels succeeded.

With better dialogue and acting (and no Jar-Jar), the prequels would be seen in a much better light today.

I hate to say it, but YES there's just way too much Star Wars now and not the good kind. It's getting so watered down, it sucks. I loved the original trilogy and part 7 was pretty fun (if not original) but 8 was just so-so. Rogue One had no endearing characters aside from that one droid and that hurt it big time. The new SOLO trailer did zero for me at all. Another prequel? Why? The only thing that movie seems destined to do is crap on the legacy of Ford's Han.

I actually prefer the prequels over the "tweaking" Lucas did to the originals. He probably said to himself: "Wow hey look I have 3 out of 6 shitty Star Wars movies, why not have 6 shitty Star Wars movies!?". Biggest offenders: The new Jabba music video, Superimposing Hayden Wooden Anderson or w/e as a force ghost, Adding a terrible CGI Jabba into a Han Solo scene that should have never been taken off the cutting room floor, Replacing the entire Ewok party scene at the end of Jedi, Vader's "NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" when he tossed Palpatine overboard (that might be the #1 worst change he's made now that I think of it),  etc. I'm all for added windows to Cloud City corridors if they have to but those added scenes were TERRIBLE.

I don't hate any of the Star Wars films. I like the new Disney movies a lot. I can even sit down and enjoy Clones once in awhile, but i do have to skip past the love story scenes.

Okay, I admit it.  I called George.  I said to George, I sez, "George, buddy  . . . you're all washed up with the Star Wars thing.  Don't get me wrong, you're a friggin' genius and all that, but, dude . . . those movies have gone off the rails.  You need to let it go.  Take the money and run, Georgie.  Disney will do right by it.  Hell, we might even see some good acting, and maybe  not so much of that awful cartoon you call CGI!  I tell you this as a friend, George.  You know I love ya."

So you count the shitty disney star wars movies but you do not count George Lucas episode 1,2 and 3 that is a part of the story 4,5 and 6? It´s people like you that made George sell the rights of Star Wars to Disney, its because people like you that destroyed Star Wars.

Okay, I admit it.  I called George.  I said to George, I sez, "George, buddy  . . . you're all washed up with the Star Wars thing.  Don't get me wrong, you're a friggin' genius and all that, but, dude . . . those movies have gone off the rails.  You need to let it go.  Take the money and run, Georgie.  Disney will do right by it.  Hell, we might even see some good acting, and maybe  not so much of that awful cartoon you call CGI!  I tell you this as a friend, George.  You know I love ya."

Toymaker, I hearby nominate a new Member Title for you:


"Official Destroyer of Star Wars"
