Woody Allen says there is a reason why black actors don’t appear in his films. Whether it makes sense is something else altogether.
woody allen continues to be a despicable human being who’s even surprised at this point
Last day of the month and I have a SHITTON of internet left. WHAT DO I DO WITH ALL THIS FREEDOM?!
What is the most essential movie ever for LGBT viewers?
What’s the significance of watching it 451236? Why not watch it 456123? You’re just like my best friend, he watched them all this year and he doesn’t really like them either (including the originals). I love the originals though!
I dunno. I read a post one time on Tumblr that very strongly advocated watching them that way and they had lots of reasons (the argument is based on this post I believe). Anyway it made sense for me simply because I can be very easily discouraged in series and shows and will give them up if they make me feel too bad (I gave up Community for a long time because Troy’s 21st birthday episode depressed me so much).
So there’s no way I would have gotten through if I’d done 123456. And if I’d done 456123, I would have probably never even watched the prequels just on reputation. Which I’m sure some people would say is fine. But 451236 is getting me a good foundation (4 and 5 were pretty good), some time to suffer through, but then I get 6 to look forward to and end on a good note so I might be excited for the upcoming movies. Plus some Star Wars fanatics thing this is a good way to watch them, even encourage this order over others, so I will follow their recommendations as they know best.
Alyssa made a good point when she said most people our age who really love the movies grew up with them. Which makes a lot of sense. I think they’re fine, I do not get why they’re so huge in pop culture, and they are not the best films ever made. But I could see how my parents’ generation would love them at the time and show them to their kids and get them hooked, or kids would find them and love them on their own. My dad was the movie watcher in our family and he only saw the first one and it didn’t click with him, so he didn’t pass it on to me, and anyway I’m just getting around to them now (I actually refused to watch them before and it was like a talking point, I love movies so much and have seen a bunch but not Star Wars), so they don’t have the impact on me that they have on many people (at least that’s my theory). But with the upcoming movies, I thought I should finally get on the bandwagon.
I’ll see how I feel about the upcoming movies once I’m completely done. Right now I don’t see why people are getting so hyped. They were hyped for the prequels and look what happened… I’m very neutral when it comes to expectations most of the time. But just the cast alone is very exciting. If it weren’t a Star Wars movie I would be super excited for them alone.
The third one is decent, you’re almost through these awful prequels! lol
I actually don’t mind them so much. It’s just I get like an hour and a half in and I think it should be done soon like this is okay and then nope it’s forty-five, fifty minutes more to go… And I’m doing the order episodes 451236, because I’m very easily discouraged, so I have Episode VI to look forward to.
I want to be watching great movies, but instead I’m watching these stupid Star Wars prequels.
