This does not bode well for the Franchise...

Then again, they bought Marvel and got Joss Wheadon to do the Avengers... Maybe he'd do Star Wars?

I agree to an extent. I'm a big Fassbender fan (gotta root for my fellow Irish) but he didn't have as much spotlight glaring on him from the start. Taking on such an iconic role at what was essentially the start of his career left Christensen open to harsh criticism that was always going to appear when he wasn't exactly what the original had called for.

See... Why can't every discussion be like this?

I mean I disagree with you but you're not only being reasonable and fair, but you're doing so effortlessly and not falsely.



Another good point btw. I mean, to be fair Keanu Reeves has had a big career and he may be even worse. I don't feel I'm judging Hayden even more so because of what role he had to take on, but that's not to say others haven't.

Thanks for the compliment. Acting is a subjective thing and what is effective to one person might not work for another at all. For example, I seem to be the only person who does not hold Meryl Streep up on a ridiculous pedestal ( she's a good actress but to me she's highly overrated and extremely affected in some of her roles). That doesn't mean I'm right, it just means I don't buy into her performances. This might be an argument in favour of us both being to some extent right (and to the same extent wrong) about
Hayden Christensen.

I was really hoping for a more adult oriented Star Wars movie if there was to be one. The prequels were all flash and effects but I want a more gritty, darker side of Star Wars. But I don't think we'll see that with Disney owning them. At least George Lucas can't ruin more of it.

I agree wholeheartedly. As I see it, a real series of sequels could do one of the following:

1. Thrawn. Could be AMAZING. Tons of great new characters, an awesome plot that is connected to but not derivitave of the originals, and lays the groundwork for future movies. Although they'd have to replace all the classic actors. No way Luke, Leia, Han, AND Lando all sign on again. I'd wager Mark Hamill would do some unrecognizable cameo, that guy does a lot of behind-the-scenes awesomeness. Metalocalypse, anyone? But the main reason they won't do it is because it directly contradicts the details of the Clone Wars Lucas has so lovingly crapped out. And not just minor details, the central conflict.

2. New Jedi Order. This would take balls, as it gets REAL dark. Kills off beloved characters at a rate not matched since A Song of Ice and Fire. Could be great if they embrace the darkness, wouldn't be too hard to trim it down to a neat 4 movies or so. Balance Point, Star by Star, Traitor+Destiny's Way, Unifying Force. Oh that reminds me--Traitor is the best Star Wars book. Go read that and everything by Matthew Stover ever. Way too philosophical and brutal for Disney though. Series would probably get rated R just for the Yuuzhan Vong makeup. I WANT THIS.

3. A re-write of post-Jedi doings. Not necessarily terrible, but they'd need to get the best possible writers to even have a chance at something decent. Anything pre-Thrawn is honestly unnecessary, and anything post-NJO would take too much explanation.

4. More Clone Wars shit. Please no. No one cares.

5. Pre-prequel. Say...

I think acting can be subjective but only so much can be. There is definitely such a thing as bad acting, and of course most bad actors in the world won't be hired to be in a film. In the end, some do though, and I do hate Hayden as an actor but in the end, there is worse, like, unspeakably bad. I think what got to me the most about Hayden was his role in Factory Girl. If you haven't seen that movie, give it a shot and maybe you'll think he's good in it. I dunno. I just downright disliked his performance but as you said it's for the most part subjective.

Oh god no. I get that Disney has definitely had great films through those kinds of companies, but I just mean their cheesy, connect the dots, garbage and lifeless live action films that either involve old celebrities experiencing shenanigans, an animal to get our sympathy, or some sport movie where the underdog wins.

I'll stop before I offend people with where I'm going with this

Here's hoping it'll be a new story. Not some stupid prequel/sequel shit.

I hope it's about a Bounty Hunter or something. Or the republic Commandos (that game was amazing). I'm sick of Jedis being in the spotlight. Yea they got laser swords, yea they got the force. We've had 6 movies about them now, let someone else's story get told.

Damn it no.

Return of the Jedi is the best ending for the series proper; leave the extended universe stuff alone. I hate when films with good endings are given necessary sequels that make the original (and better) film(s) obsolete.

And while Disney has made some great films, they have made a lot of pointless films for the sake of making money, and this will be the latter. The prequels suddenly seem really good.

I think people are too hard on the prequels. They were hyped way too much. They're alright, I watch them all the time. (all 6 movies in order, obvs). Revenge of the Sith was ****ing sweet. Phantom Menace was meh, could've been better if they got a kid that could act, but hey. I'll take it.

I can imagine a cockatoo writing better dialogue for the prequels.

There's no serious and joking thing for this post, though. Just serious.

I kind of like the third one. They all have good qualities that were ruined by the bad qualities (especially the dialogue).

I'll leave my opinion at that as I don't want to start another prequel debate.

I always say 90% of bad acting is bad directing. Sometimes an actor is just shit, though. Portman was shoddy, but look at her in other films where she is much better. I can't say Hayden's ever been good for me. I mean, he was one of the worst things in Factory Girl with the worst Bob Dylan portrayal I've ever seen, and in the same movie Guy Pearce gives a brilliant Andy Warhol performance. You are right though. Lucas's directing was pretty shite with the prequels. There's a reason why he didn't direct all of the original trilogy.

Have you ever seen Life as a House or Shattered Glass?

I thought his "I killed them all" breakdown was pretty solid as well.

Seen both. Shattered Glass is the ONLY time I've ever thought he was pretty good. Granted it's better than never!

Everyone here should watch Shattered Glass actually. It's a pretty cool movie.

But yeah otherwise I have not liked his work

The first prequel is horrendous. Look up plinkett's review and there will be no discussion on this matter.

Anyone who uses Plinkett's review as an argument is shitty at critiquing.
