At the time of making this video, we were unaware of the controversy regarding Max Landis. We definitely don't love him anymore.

  • Soo basically his arguments are "It's not the exact same movie so it's okay it copy's most of A New Hope"

  • I don’t have a problem with her beating kylo ren because he is wounded, i don’t have a problem with her knowing ships but i can agree with her using the force without training, luke is powerfull im the force but he doesn’t use a mind trick or telekinesis until empire, and by then he is al ready training himself, rey didn’t have any fucking training in two of the three movies and she didn’t need it

    • Huh... yes she did, and she did need it. You just don't understand how force training works. Obi-Wan and Yoda's training consisted of telling Luke the same thing he and Maz told Rey - it's not about "force push-ups", it's about spiritual wisdom.

    • I walked out of the theatre in awe and loved the new characters and was hyped. I was interested in the stories of Rey and Finn. Also, the action was epic. The only thing I was upset with was Han Solo dying, but that took nothing away from the movie AT ALL and was only a heartbreaking scene. I wasn’t disappointed. Better than the prequels.

He was referred to as the best shot in the Tatooine execution team during the 2nd moisture wars. it’s heavily implied that he was forced into this after Unlce Owen caught him farming his own moisture during the forbidden 11th month Nah just kidding

  • Haha episode one is awesome About the Mary Sue argument I’d say it happened in force awakens go a different degree. Ray didn’t have transparent faults in the same way luke and anakin did, and she got powerful more quickly. Luke and anakin were still pretty weak after each of their 2nd movies.

  • sorry but both examples of how anakin and luke r mary sues is just dumb lmao luke had training from ben on the falcon so he was able to get his lightsaber in the snow. anakin had podracing and was the chosen one if u think its un justified why hes a good pilot and why hes a good swordsman bro idk what to tell you. alot different from a random girl junker using a jedi mind trick and defeating her first sith after 1 day of owning a lightsaber.

    • @Jakob.O if u know the lore he was made by sith like 8000 years in the past so yes he was literal destined to do what he does... they say and show this in a lot of Star Wars media you should know this lol.

To real fans it’s obvious 🤷🏽‍♂️

  • A quick nitpick, but at around 20:00 he says Rey is familiar with melee weapons, but her showed a clip of her using a staff, using a staff and using a lightsaber are two very different things, like if somebody was taught to use a spear, then given a knife, but, there is the possibility she may have previously used a smaller weapon similar to a lightsaber.

  • Luke was able to blow up the Death Star because he hunted womp rats on Tatooine in his T-16 Skyhopper which flies similar to an X Wing. Womp rats are smaller than the exhaust port so that’s how he made the shot plus he has the force. He was good with a blaster because he used them on Tatooine to hunt womp rats when he had his Skyhopper taken away.

  • I agree with most of the points, sure its not original but the plot worked, its not an awful movie its okay, the inclusion of minorities is great, but Rey is much more a Mary Sue than Luke or Anakin. Anakin had much knowledge mechanically due to pod racing and mechanics. He also did destroy the space station, however his original idea was to go along with the other pilots and try to help, he didn't know that shooting that specific part of the ship would destroy it, he was trying to hit droids and missed, also his "trick" was spinning, not very advanced imo. Luke had knowledge from mechanics and his speeder and his T-16 skyhopper (which many forget about), it also had a weapons system which we are told in A New Hope. Rey only has mechanical knowledge, so i can expect she'd be able to fly, but I doubt she could outmaneuver trained First Order Pilots. The natural ability they all show in the force makes sense and the force also has it's own will so helping Rey makes sense. And also yes Kylo lost bc he was beat up pretty bad. But Rey's "mary sueness" only arises more in the next movies.

    • You're sort of acting as if the damage to his body doesn't matter. If that were the case, Darth Vader shouldn't have lost to Obi-Wan in Revenge of the Sith, even though he got his limbs burned off, since he'd never felt greater pain. Kylo Ren was literally hit by a wookie bowcaster that's repeatedly shown one-shotting stormtroopers throughout the movie. He was lucky to have survived that.

  • 15:00 Yes. Anakin is also a maraey "however the fuck you say it" sue Luke just isn't a marey "fuck" sue He beats darth vader with the dark side, after 2 movies. Luke barely lifts a lightsaber out of snow. He used the force to hit a shot "which is just enhanced senses" which is known as the easiest force ability to learn. C'mon... You're smarter than this

    • @ApplesInnit Since they were arrogant, neither of them were level-headed or at top performance. And since Kylo was emotionally unbalanced after killing his father, neither was he. Emotions can make you less effective even if you're on the Dark Side. The point is that The Last Jedi makes a point of making it clear that Kylo wasn't clear-minded against Rey, and that he wouldn't have lost if he was. Since the movie points out the improbability of him losing to someone who hadn't used a lightsaber before, I don't think you can very well use that as a fair criticism.

      Earnest scribblerEarnest scribbler2 tháng trước
    • @Earnest scribbler incorrect. They both lost because they were arrogant. They achieved the power they had because of emotions.

    • @Hayley dog It's not like you need training to use the Force. Obi-Wan never taught Luke how to move stuff with the Force, yet he's still able to do it at the start of Empire. Anakin is a genius mechanic and great pilot when he's ten years younger than Rey, and he's the only human who can pilot a pod racer. Plus, Luke's talented enough to keep up with and outlast trained military pilots. Star Wars characters tend to accomplish far-fetched stuff.

      Earnest scribblerEarnest scribbler2 tháng trước
    • @Hayley dog Luke can fight with a lightsaber in Empire too. Doesn't Snoke say in The Last Jedi that Kylo Ren only lost to Rey since he was an emotional mess over killing his dad? Rey's also a street fighter who's had to fend for herself on a desert planet her whole life, and her skill with her staff, another melee weapon, is evident early in The Force Awakens.

  • I understand what you're saying and appreciate them but I still find this movie and especially the sequals to it quite frustrating simply because of all the missed oppurtunities. Disney likes to play it safe and therefore the story didn't do much more than the bare minimum, making me kind of like it less every time I think about it. For example, they could have explored some amazing planets rather than just having another desert and I would have loved to see a new culture explored. They also could have gone into more detail in the First Order but they didn't. It's stuff like this which frustrated me and really holds this whole trilogy back.

  • I see the points, but I have to side with Mauler and company and say that it's, in my humble opinion, just a disappointing and "cheap" movie. Not from a technical standpoint, but purely from a screenwriting perspective. There is nothing apart from the action scenes that makes me wanna enjoy the movie, and the action isnt even that great, it's mindless blockbuster average. And saying "Well it's not bad because the prequels and the original trilogy were also bad"... ye idk about that one. We should learn from our mistakes. And holding a goofy low budget trilogy from 50 years ago to the same standards as a multi million dollar monopolist's production... phew, that's a stretch.

  • Anakin is only a Mary Sue in Ep.1 because he's a child. He's not a Mary Sue in Ep.2 or 3 because he had these two magical things called training and experience. What did Rey have? (As a side note, even if Anakin was a Mary Sue [Which he's not!] it doesn't mean Rey's a good character [Which she's not!]) Luke is never a Mary Sue because he's always had background experience, training, or help. 1. Death Star: he's flown before and he was helped by Ben. 2. Guns: he's shot guns beforehand (and he was probably being helped by Ben through the Force) 3. Using the Force: he had training (on-screen)! 4. Turret: it's not a hard concept (and he's being helped by a computer) and he's not flying the ship so the "trained squadron" (which wasn't supposed to kill them so they'd be tracked to the Rebel base) doesn't mean anything really. 5. Darth Vader: HE'S BEEN TRAINING UNDER YODA AND BEN FOR FOUR YEARS AT THIS POINT (and Vader is holding back). If those criticisms were true, it wouldn't be "nitpicking" to point them out; Luke would be a legitimately bad character. But they're not valid criticisms, so he's a good character. It's different with Rey because she actually had no training ever in any field other than scrapping, which is why we who call her a Mary Sue when she flies the Falcon perfectly having never flied anything before ever (by her own admission), using a blaster and taking out squads of fully-trained stormtroopers (that are actively trying to kill her) with no background experience, using a Jedi mind-trick without knowing the ability existed, and winning her first lightsaber battle against a fully-trained former Jedi and 10-year Dark Jedi acolyte are valid in pointing these things out (also, she has almost no coherent personality or growth in the entirety of Ep.7-9). Jabba knows what a Jedi mind trick is because he's very old and has been around several Jedi and Watto knows what it is because he lived during the time when the Jedi were basically the inter-galactic police force, but notice how Luke doesn't know what it is (Palpatine is in power). It's different with Rey because she thinks the Jedi are a myth. Rey can use a staff (a weapon you can rest on your body without slicing limbs off) therefore it makes totally sound sense that she beats a fully trained Force-user. That's the logic you're applying? That's exactly the same as saying someone really good at paintball could be a Green Beret marksman because of "experience"; that makes no bloody sense. And if she won just because Kylo was wounded I'd be totally fine with that, but they demonstrate that he's clearly dominating the fight (Rey is literally pushed to the brink) and then she closes her eyes and magically/conveniently gets Force powers that turn the tide of the battle (and that's never explained later [no, her being a Palpatine doesn't make it better; I don't need to explain myself]); she doesn't win because of "boo-boos" (also she should have a major concussion if that's the case). 21:15-21:22 Irony. I don't think you think the OT is as bad as you say because, if it was, then you would like the PT.

    • 1. Even if Luke had become a decent pilot there's no way he would be able to outshine trained rebellion x-wing pilots vs trained imperial tie pilots and DARTH VADER himself 2. Same point as the first but with gunners instead of pilots 3. If you're referring to Luke's training in ESB then explain how he could use the force (with no training) to blow up the death star and how he used the force (again with no training) to pull his lightsaber back to him. If you're referring to the 30 seconds he spent deflecting blaster bolts with his eyes covered, then I'm blown away that that's enough training you need to see to convince you that he isn't a Mary sue

    • @Darth Vader Cosmo's not infallible; in fact, he's wrong about a lot of things most of the time and I'm pointing out the things he got wrong directly in response to the video (which I watched). P.S. Don't call yourself nobody; you're Darth freakin' Vader. P.P.S. I agree with his final thesis, by the way; it's totally fine to like any movies you want. I also agree that Force Awakens is a decent movie; I just think it's a bad Star Wars Ep.6 sequel.

  • Star Wars isn't just about Good vs. Evil; that main overarching theme from Ep.1 to Ep.6 is about family. I think most people didn't like it for a) copying Ep.4 because it wasn't as good so it just felt cheap. b) There's no worldbuilding so we don't know how we got here from Ep.6. And c) The characters from the OT (mainly Han and Leia) haven't really grown from where we last saw them (now they don't like it because only about 45% of its setups ended up mattering in 8 and 9).

    Bretton Scrima da RomaBretton Scrima da Roma2 tháng trước
    • @zahc I think you know good and well that's not the rise to power I'm talking about. How did the First Order get enough control, power, money, and resources to build a Death Star that's comparatively the sun? How much power do they have? How many systems do they control? These are important questions (*if* you think they aren't, you have no idea what makes a good sequel) that are never answered (the books don't count) when they should be at the top of the list. That's my main problem with the ST; no coherent worldbuilding. I'll say it again: The Hero's Journey. Is *NOT*. A form. Of Theme. The Hero's Journey is a technique to develop your main protagonist; never in the history of literature has it been used as a theme because pretty much every learned writer knows it's not a thing that can intelligently be used in said way. It does not drive the plot, it's the direction in which the plot is driven; it's *never* a theme, it's the vehicle used to communicate theme (same with Anakin's "Villain's Journey"). Sure; family is only explored in Ep.6 & 9 as long as you ignore it's exploration in Ep.1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and even 7. And yes, *ONE* of the overarching themes of the Star Wars franchise is the power of good through family; you can look it up and find literally thousands of film analysts pulling out familial themes and telling you exactly how and why they are integral to the story of Star Wars (except for Ep.8).

    • @Bretton Scrima da Roma The movie shows the first order's rise to power. they blow up the republic to come into power which happens during the movie, its not a plot hole if its in the movie. the overarching theme of 4-6 is the heroes journey/quest, it follows the stereotypical stages from the seven basic plots. off the top of my head a couple stages are the call to adventure, refusal of call, meet the mentor etc. that structure is the overarching theme and plot driver of the original and sequel trilogy. the prequels follow a more tragic plot with the fall of the hero. a comparison can be drawn with anakins story and macbeth. the concept of family is only explored in specific movies, ep 6 and 9. the overarching theme of star wars is not family

    • @zahc The First Order's rise to power is important because, apart from them, the Republic should be in power (as a side note, it's never explained how powerful they really are or how they got there). Maybe you're fine with just taking massive plot holes with a shrug, but I and 95% of the Star Wars fanbase say that it's important information that's just being left out. The theme of Ep.4 is not the Hero's Journey because the Hero's Journey is a form of character development and not theme. The fall of a hero and good vs. evil are themes in the franchise, but the main, overarching theme in Ep.1-6 is about family.

    • @Bretton Scrima da Roma there isn’t any explaining about the rise to power because it isn’t important to the story. it says it’s from the ashes of the first order and that’s all it needs to say otherwise the pacing of the movie would be terrible. the theme of ep 4 and the rest of the originals is the heroes journey. the prequels have the fall of a hero, the sequels have the heroes journey again. but the overarching theme of all star wars movies is good vs evil.

      zahczahc2 tháng trước
    • @zahc No, it doesn't. There is absolutely no worldbuilding explaining where the First Order came from, how they rose to power, or how the New Galactic Republic became so weak and small again. In terms of theme, they're all about family in the same way How to Train Your Dragon 3 is all about love; making something an integral part of the plot and motives is a legitimate way to showcase theme. In fact, if a characters motivations form around a particular thing (i.e. love or family), then that thing is most likely one of the major themes. That's basic literature for ya.

  • nah I don't agree the whole Anakin Mary sue thing, he literally has loads of flaws, he always makes selfish decisions and always thinks he is right and ends up making a lot of mistakes, he is good at piloting and also is a very good force user, but being good at stuff doesn't make them a Mary sue, its their attitude that makes that as well. i agree that force awakens is not bad, rey barely had any flaws though which was a bit annoying

  • You guys wanna know why I didn’t hate the sequel trilogy? Because a lot of the things that people hated about it were actually somewhat decent Take Rise of Skywalker, people hated the fact that Palpatine returned because it didn’t make sense or it made Anakin’s sacrifice seem meaningless in Return of the Jedi Anakin still brought down the Empire bringing about the birth of the New Republic, so his sacrifice was far from meaningless, for years the New Republic remained in control and as the Mandalorian showed, the Empire may have fallen but there were still loyalists to it, loyalists who would try their hardest to bring about its return, and Palpatine’s return DOES make sense!!! He’s said before that the dark side can do some pretty amazing shit! He is also the most powerful Sith Lord in the Galaxy, AND it’s pretty clear how powerful the force can be, able to hold back huge explosions even when wielded by somewhat weak force users, so imagine what a Sith Lord could do The many things that people hate about the sequel trilogy were actually pretty decent I would’ve preferred Finn be the Jedi instead of Rey but Finn not being the Jedi might actually work out better for him because now, he’s facing the First Order, a group that he once feared, not with the power of the force but rather just facing them because he’s done running, no matter how weak he seems he’s done running and is willing to stay and fight, it’s one of the reasons I loved his fight with Captain Phasma, he was weaker than Phasma, he probably knew it too, but he stayed and fought, he didn’t back down no matter how weak he seemed, making him perfect for the role of a weak hero who just doesn’t give up Rey’s character development wasn’t very satisfying, I’ll admit that, in fact it was pretty boring, but a lot of people gave her hate because her NATURAL TALENT with the force gave her an edge over those who were trained Except she got some brief training from Luke before getting actual training from Leia in Rise of Skywalker, and the dark side pulls to her because she is the granddaughter of Palpatine, so she must deal with that struggle, a struggle that makes her a better Jedi when she overcomes it, and I know people will hate the “Rey Skywalker” title she gave herself, but take a look at Luke and Leia’s force apparitions, Rey may not have EARNED her reputation as a Skywalker but two actual Skywalkers chose to let her have that title, they trained her to be a Jedi who could overcome adversity and that’s exactly what she did, she didn’t give herself that title, Luke and Leia gave it to her Kylo Ren is the Darth Vader wannabe, nothing can change my mind on that, but Darth Vader had almost completely given in to the Dark Side because it helped him achieve his goals, Ren gave in because he felt he couldn’t trust those who followed the light, his own uncle tried to kill him, how could he trust anyone again, but he reached out for Rey because in her he felt he could trust someone again, Ren may not be what Darth Vader was, but that isn’t because of the differences in characters, it’s the differences in experience, Anakin had a dream and in order to achieve the dream he needed to give in to the darkness, he believed the Jedi were holding him back so he abandoned their ways to achieve his goals, Ren joined the dark side because he was scared and alone, he wanted to trust again, but was scared of what would happen if he let his guard down again That’s what makes his line when he killed Han so IMPACTFUL; “I know what I have to do but I don’t know if I have the strength to do it.” He knows he has to kill his father but he doesn’t want to, he wants to trust that he can go back but he’s too scared of what will happen if he tries, Darth Vader left because it wouldn’t help him to stick around, Kylo Ren left because he was too scared of what might happen to him if he stuck around Lightsaber duels are literally the ONLY thing I REFUSE to defend for the sequel trilogy, they were BORING, the duel between Rey and Ren in the forest at the end of Force Awakens was straight up BORING, the only GOOD lightsaber fight in the sequels was against Snoke’s personal guards, and even that one was pretty boring Overall, the sequels weren’t good, but they’re not nearly as bad as people make them out to be

  • This movie ranks below the Ewoks Christmas Special!! Cardboard acting and an utterly ludicrous storyline. 1. Finn joined Poe AFTER Poe killed his best friend. 2. Kylo (Bwahahahahahaha) kills the guy who is supposed to have the map, before finding out where he put the map, worships his grandfather who turned back to the Light and defeated the Sith, can't beat a JANITOR even WITH his lightsaber!! 3. Rey can do everything, taking literally seconds to learn. EVERYTHING! Why does she even need to be trained? I mean really? She can fight a Dark Jedi with a lightsaber, she can fly the Falcon better than Han, she can mind control. WTF could Leia or Luke, or even Yoda teach her? Palpatine being her grandad wouldn't do this!! I wanted the big reveal to be that the Jedi council, and all the recruits ran a train on Rey's mom, froze her in carbonite, then she was thawed out after the emperor died and gave birth to Rey, with the combined power of every Jedi of the Old Republic!

    • ​@August Montesano Don't know what movie you were watching, but that didn't happen in TFA Stupid points: 1.Finn risks his life to save Poe, who just killed his best friend! It would make sense if the 1st Order was randomly bombing the village or shooting people and he was killed in the crossfire 2. Kylo went to SPECIFICALLY FIND the map. If he didn't want anyone to have it, he could have nuked the planet from orbit, or better still, used the starkiller to blow it into space dust. He goes down to find the map, then kills the only guy who had the map.....without finding out where the map is! 3. Rey can use mind control, fly and fix the Falcon better than Han, duel with a lightsaber. Luke needed training to use a lightsaber. He already used speeders before he flew an X-wing, he was a pilot. he talks about shooting womprats with his T16, he knows how to fly and shoot targets. And he is Force trained. Rey taking down Kylo is like Luke taking down Vader in ESB. 3. Anakin blew it up by accident. And he had a droid helping him actually fly ( you probably missed R2D2). if he had flown up in the Naboo fighter specifically to blow up the battleship, yeah, everyone would have said that was stupid. Rey doesn't get lucky, or do things by accident. She knows EVERYTHING! 4. And Kylo slashes Finn's back with his lightsaber, and instead of cutting him in two, he just.....I dunno, scratches his back or something??? Rey can do anything with the Force, so why is she a scrap metal dealer? Why is she dragging it to the merchant when she can levitate it to him? Why does she accept his price when she can mind control him into giving her 10, 50 or 1million times what she wants? What this story shows, is that there is no training required to use the Force. If you are Force Sensitive, you can levitate, mind control, fight with a lightsaber. So what's the point of Jedi training? Light or Dark? Why have Jedi Masters? Rey is so powerful, none of that is needed.

    • First off, did you watch the movie or the video. Serious question. Most of what you say is nit picky and wrong. All of it is actually. First off Finn wasn’t best buds with everyone there. And he wanted to do good, and help the rebellion instead of kill civilians. Kylo Ren killing him was obviously out of anger. Also it’s better for him if no one gets Luke Skywalker than him coming back. Rey can not do everything. I’m guessing you didn’t make it to the end of the video. Everyone in Star Wars is really good at stuff. Anakin destroyed a whole space station at 9 years old. Luke was one of the only pilots to make it out of the Death Star. He also blew it up, and used the force with little to no training. She can’t fly better than Han, like not at all. She crashes a little and barely gets away, and it’s only like two ships chasing her. She lives on a planet with scraped ships and uses them, so it’s not surprising that she can work on one. She is seen fighting against people with her staff, and can handle herself well. So it’s not surprising she can beat Kylo when he is clutching a wound and injured. Also the acting isn’t that bad? I mean I’ve seen worse and the story is fine and simple if anything. Your points were invalid and nit picky, and I’m guessing you only have these nit picks about these movies and not any of the other trilogies.

  • The criticism of this movie is so funny. I watched it as someone who enjoys Star Wars but definitely isnt a huge Star Wars Fanboy, so I didnt feel personally attacked by this movie. It's a good, enjoyable movie. Most stuff that "is ruining the movie" doesnt actually stop the flow of the movie really. I remember when I came out of the movie the only thing I didnt like was that Finn wasn't used more. Also as someone who spends a lot of time with amateur writing: I don't think y'all know what a Mary Sue is. Rey is established as a good fighter and someone with knowledge of spaceships since the first scenes. Kylo was established to be wounded and to spare Rey. So uhm... tell me again, why is it unreasonable for her to know this stuff and beat him? We also have to keep in mind that she is our protagonist. Protagonists tend to be extremely good with things that are essential to the plot, or are fast to learn these skills. I didnt grew up with Star Wars, I watched the first movie when I was like 15. And honestly, Rey feels more human and realistic and Luke did. Y'all just blended by your nostalgia for the original movies. Which is fine, but don't try to come up with stupid shit that isnt true. She isnt a Mary Sue, she's literally just a skilled Protagonist... just like ANY other protagonist in these movies.

  • The sequel trilogy really disappointed me. The Last Jedi ruined anything J.J. had planned (although I personally like it more than most, I still can’t disagree that it didn’t totally fuck things up), and The Last Skywalker or whatever it was called was a fan fiction. The TFA is just so much fun. I can watch TFA and pretend TLJ and the other one didn’t exist and imagine a story where this story is one that may even succeed the original trilogy. One where Finn and his background as a storm trooper is more fleshed out, one where Rey learns that she has found a new family and that struggle is important, one that Poe has a character arc about being humble and realizing war isn’t a game. One where Kylo Ren’s story arc isn’t the only good part of this trilogy. Hell, let Poe have a boyfriend, who gives a shit, I can just imagine a world where Disney does something amazing. Because they could’ve, TFA laid the perfect foundation for it If only it wasn’t royally fucked up. Wont stop me from enjoying the potential TFA has to offer
