Yeah. Don't know if you can define a true fan. All I know is I am. And I'm sure there's many others in all respects. I'm sure I'm gonna whine and b$tch about something small( or big) in ep 7 as well....

Guys, keep it civilised.

The movies are coming. I am still not sure if the three new movies will actually be sequels. We do know that Ep& is a sequel but no the rest.

Personally I think the whole concept of "dark", "gritty", "mature" or even movies that explain stuff is the point. SW is like any other adventure movie: it should be simple, it should be captivating, it should feel real and alive and it should work as a whole. Personally, again, I think the PT failed miserably on those counts. I can only hope EP7 will not. And if it's good, I could see a new SW any day.

Nope. Just a fan. I don't pretend my love of Star Wars is "better" than other people's. smile

A pet peeve of mine is when directors make movies literally dark to show how thematically dark and serious the movie is. I'd prefer they lay off the digital tinting controls. Let the screenplay and acting show how dark the themes are.

What about the green-tint to the Matrix films? Did that also irritate you? I hear/read that it irritated many people.

Matrix tinting didn't bother me as much as some - I'm not sure why.

The rave scenes, on the other hand...

don't mind me. it's just that those very words "true fan" have often been spoken by people in self-appraisal after self-appraisal with 100% sincerity.

it's a pavlov bell which sends me into a frenzy of growling and snapping.

If your on this forum. You have interest in Star Wars. All has there opinions and most are sound. Star Wars is entertainment, and meant for you....fans are fans from different eras. There are those who will disagree with you, and those who are on the same page. The freedoms we enjoy, can be mutual or argumentative. Guess that's democracy...

Always fun to complain on a particular day, then agree on another day..

According to my post count, I've been right exactly 7,651 times. smile

So in all seriousness though, I can't wait for Episode 7.

The only thing I'm reserved about are the spin-off movies.

To me there's a novelty behind waiting several years for a new SW film. I don't want the spin-offs to over-saturate the market or weaken my anticipation for a new movie.

I love the SW universe as part of a singular saga. Can't say I'm eagerly excited for a Boba Fett movie. I will definitely give it a try though.

It's quite simple. If you don't like something that happens in a series you can chose to ignore it.

For example if you don't like the ending of Digimon Series 2 you can read or write a fanfic that has it end differently and that is the canon to you personally.

What, you're saying we should like a film series just because of "how well they do"?

I don't give a filoffal "how well they do." I decide for myself what I like and what I don't. If a movie bombs at the box office but I enjoyed it then guess what, I liked it. If it's a huge hit but I dislike it then you can get stuffed if you think I should like just because a ton of other people do.

Maybe it will. I doubt it but maybe the Sequel Trilogy will surprise me.

Correction, we enjoy having our own free will and not mindlessly worshipping popular things just because they're popular.

All I'm saying is think for yourself. If you like something that happens to be popular that's great. But like it because that's what YOU think, not just because a bunch of people tell you to.

Yeah, ignoring it is one thing. Saying it's "not canon" is another. I can ignore traffic laws, but those laws still exist regardless of how I feel about them.
