And the world, unheeding, turns
I wouldn't have cared for spoilers myself.
This reminded me of something I read this morning about some new Game of Thrones advertisements. People are up in arms because they show major events from previous episodes, stuff that happened years ago, but some people still haven't seen it so apparently it can't be shown until everyone in the entire world has caught up.Do we really need spoilers?
My son gave me season 1 last Christmas, and said if I liked it, he'd get me a season for my b-day, Father's Day, etc, and if I didn't, no big deal.I've never seen Game of Thrones. Maybe I'll watch the upcoming prequel series 1st.
It's a slooooow burn, but worth it. Not as bad as Walking Dead which I gave up on after season 3. Mos def giving at least one more season a try.My son gave me season 1 last Christmas, and said if I liked it, he'd get me a season for my b-day, Father's Day, etc, and if I didn't, no big deal.
I watched season 1, and it was ok, but I didn't have any real interest in what happens next.
Then I went on the internet and watched some review videos and was shocked by the vile hatred it got.
This may be strange place to quote Lars Ulrich but I remember one of his interviews where he said the bigger they became, it felt to him like he started to wore bigger target/bullseye on him or something between those line. And Star Wars is something like Beatles in film world - it's fan base is enourmous, spanning over billions of people and couple of decades. That being said, when you have a huge fanbase, you're going to have a huge base of haters too. Moreso, no matter what you do, some part is going to be unsatisfied. On the other hand, if you look close enough, you're going to find people that are praising current SW cast as something revolutionary.I liked the movie and was also pretty surprised by the intense hatred for it.
Return of the Jedi is loved now, but at the time it got a lot of shit for those "stupid Ewoks." Nevermind that they kill and eat anything that moves lol.Eh... what I wanted to say is: every SW I went to watch in cinema (Phantom Menace onwards) was hated in some form or another.
No, as divisive as they are, I would not like them to be remade. Remaking any SW film to be would be heresy.
A more interesting question for me is what if Lucas had made the films in chronological order and Ep I were made 1st with technology where it was in 1977, what would it have looked like and would it have been well received?
