  • Episodes 1-6 are Star Wars. They are the ultimate sci-fi/fantasy epic. A masterpiece. The disney trilogy is not worthy of the Star Wars name. Heartless, corporate Trash.

  • I do think Disney need to add more worldbuilding to make the movies relevant. And they can both do that while being true to Lucas original vision. In these movies I don't really feel like the movies exist in a living world, in the old movies I always had the impression that they were part of a large world where other things happened around the heroes. Here, everyone but the heroes and villains feel like cardboard extras, they have little to no motivation for themselves. The Arthurian stories expanded in a very different way. The stories in "Mabinogion" felt very simple and are probably the oldest preserved, after that they expanded the universe and added in new things (the grail however was actually mentioned in what might be the earliest Artthur sttory, Arthur is boasting of all the junk he have and he mention a grail among all treasures he have even if he doesn't say what it is). The story expand with new ideas, more heroes, villains and other people. The story changes to fit new audiences with time. Star wars is almost the opposite, there they kill off a lot of the material and the new doesn't really add that much, and when it actually does it screws up established rules with things like the Hondo maneuver. They could have cherry picked ideas from the expanded universe or they could have expanded the world themselves but this feels more like they are rehashing the first movies... poorly. You can't remake the same movies forever, look on the Rocky movies, eventually you start to bleed audience and we are seeing that with Star wars now. When a movie about Han Solo fails you are doing something wrong.

  • "What if the point of looking at the films was as a part of the long storytelling position" - This right here, your entire premise of this video, is a reach (a grasping of straws, if you will) to recontextualise the sequel trilogy in an attempt to make them....not be a terrible sequel trilogy. Most people tend to talk about how good something is standing on its own before trying to link it to what's gone before. You decided to skip the "standing on its own" part. Answer me this - Could you unironically do this very thing to the Terminator franchise, the Transformers franchise, or heck, the Resident Evil franchise? Relating Vader, lightsabers and Jedi to an Achilles Heel/Trojan Horse - Congratulations, you've proven that the ORIGINAL TRILOGY is so beloved that its a modern epic and part of the nerd zeitgeist. Now how does this impact the Sequels? Goes on to explain the technical/design specifics of SW the franchise - Okay...I think I see where this is going and I hope I'm wrong.... Side Note - It could be argued that JJ's career is entirely built upon franchise resonance and very little else. He cares little for the structural integrity of a film if that integrity impacts either/both the visual epic storytelling and the franchise resonance he's misusing. Case in Point - JJ's director commentary on Force Awakens specifically has him say that Han Solo running around shooting people is "pure Han" for him. Not the Loveable Rogue who wooed Princess Leia despite her protests, not the pirate-turned-general who was about to abandon his friends because he didn't believe in anything more than himself only to return and save Luke from Vader's Tie. Nope. It's Han and his blaster. That's a fundamental misunderstanding of the character by focusing on one very specific SW resonance. And...you went EXACTLY where I hoped you didn't - Just because something uses a franchise's resonance to link back to what's gone before...DOESN'T MAKE IT GOOD! In fact, these points only ADD to why the sequel trilogy is so disliked by some fans. Because it's using those links and those resonances without understanding them! The two JJ films are bare-bones homages to those things while TLJ was specifically designed to burn it all down, piss on the flames, and then spit on the smoking corpse as a way of subverting expectations and throwing away the past. Brings up Arthurian Legend and its development - Utterly irrelevant and is only used to try proving your point without actually meaning anything. Why? Because every franchise that's ever changed hands from the original creator literally goes through this process. See the EU of Star Wars, see everything Star Trek post-Roddenberry. The problem is never that something gets added to the canon, the problem is if that something goes with the theme of the core work or runs off into lore-breaking craziness. Here's an example - Lord of the Rings. I've been hired to write the next saga of Tolkien's series and I've decided that Bilbo and Frodo return riding mechanised tanks wanting to nuke the elves. I can do that. I'm adding my own twist using my own philosophy. Insanely hyperbolic, I know. So let's say someone comes along and goes "chill. How about this?" - The Hobbits return with a dark force of the death and immense magical powers because Sauron forged a link with both of them through their constant use of the ring. They're now possessed and waging a war against the Elves that he/they believe was the real hand behind his original defeat. That's my original idea crafted in a way that doesn't (totally) break LoTR. And guess which one is actually more valid than the other? Guess which one might actually be accepted by the LotR fans and which would see me hated because I threw out everything that can before that didn't work with MY vision? Right, I'm 10 minutes in and you've essentially used a lot of words to say practically nothing. And certainly not in an in-depth relation to the sequel trilogy. The actual topic is certainly one that has merit to talk about on an intellectual level but it has nothing to do with the core issues surrounding the sequel trilogy.

  • What's the source for "the sequels are generally better received that the prequels"? Professional reviews? Because I interpreted "generally" as "the general public", and audience scores do not seem to favour the sequels, IIRC.

  • It seems like the argument cherry picks what it needs from directorial missteps and however the may align with stories told in a variety of different ways through generations. This ignores that films are a set record and within these here are massive narrative issues resulting from conflicting ideas and voices. The argument does not address this. F.

  • I was absolutely disappointed by the lack of vision and imagination in the sequel movies. The movies didn't push any boundaries (and if they did, they were all wrong ones), they were as uncreative and safe as possible, targeted to more ordinary audiences who will swallow anything. I feel like they have no redeeming qualities and kinda wish they weren't even considered cannon, as they completely dumbed down the entire lore. I didn't even go to the cinema for the last one. Didn't want to support it with my wallet. All in all, instead of an amazing one final large scale Jedi battle versus the Sith, we see Rose and Finn doing stuff in the casino and Rey vasting time for an entire movie only to find out her crazy grandpa has gathered thousand star destroyers out of nowhere.

  • Wow epicly misunderstood video. He didn't mirror thematic or story beats for the sake of the story because in-universe, from the characters perspective, the fan service serves no purpose. It ONLY makes sense for an audience beyond the fourth wall, and specifically, and rather aggressively, answers known fan criticism of the trilogy up to that point.

  • I have a hard time getting the point of the fans about this trilogy. The original trilogy is full of plot-holes, cringy dialogue (some of which I still wonder how it got "quotable" status) and time-space fuckery that only made sense thanks to written works published later. Five has the weirdest rhythm and six is basically the first movie again but with another ending. If *THIS* first trilogy is the very base of Star Wars, then seven to nine were at least as good. But if you are judging the new films according to the plasters a dozen auteurs had to make to make it hold up, then I can get why you have a hard time with the lastest trilogy - but I also don't get how you can remotely like the original one.

  • I feel that many of the critical comments here misunderstand the message of the video. The way I interpreted it, Wisecrack isn't trying to defend the choices made in the sequel trilogy or say that it a movie you didn't like is actually good from a certain point of view. They are arguing that the people behind Star Wars are telling stories the same way that epics have been told for millennia, and in turn Wisecrack is analyzing how the environment of the modern entertainment industry, with its media saturation and its intellectual property laws, is increasingly rendering those ancient democratic storytelling methods ineffectual in many ways. The video is less of an assessment of the quality of the newest Star Wars films, and more a commentary on the way that Star Wars has been affected by the all the ways that the entertainment industry has changed over the years.

  • The Expanded Universe added to what was already there in the movies. Ex: "Want to know how a TIE Fighter handles against an X-Wing? Try this game!" Disney did the opposite, and made you buy their movie tie-ins in order to understand the films. Ex: "Play Fortnite to know what RoS' opening crawl is talking about! Buy the novelization to understand a kiss!" This why the Disney trilogy is an incoherent mess of a cash grab.

  • While the use of resonance is indeed a good way to keep the same rhythm and sense of belonging throughout the entire lore, the purpose of continuing a saga is to add more to it, just like you've mentioned it has been done repeatedly in most epics. The problem with this new trilogy is not using the same beats, the problem with The Force Awakens is not going beyond them making it an exact replica with better vfx, and the problem with the other two is the additional content being complete nonsense, so much so that the last movie completely puts aside de Last Jedi. Most characters storyline is dropped ( Snoke which should be crucial to this trilogy), the pacing is all over the place. And even the way they used the same actions to ensure resonance was poorly executed that's why IT IS considered fan service. Also the same formula used in the Avengers, going back and forth in tone between comedy and despair was a mess.

  • Come to think of it the Star Wars nonology (nonology?.....nonology) is reminiscent of Homeric Epic Cycle Part One: The Iliad/The Prequel Trilogy - Great story, atrociously boring writing, particularly in the middle. Part Two: The Odyssey/The Original Trilogy - By far the best, lots of action, great story. Part Three: The Aeneid/The New Trilogy - Not as bad as the prequel, but not nearly as good as Part Two - overall mediocre.

  • Dude, you are spreading word salad. Resonance. The subsequent stories of Arthur fit the atmosphere. Ep 7-9 are a stillborn catastrophe. Luke throwing away his light saber... Rey is told her parents were just junkers by Kylo. Then Ep 9 Palpatine is the grandfather... Snok is set up as this incredible villain who can read minds, yet he can't read the mind of Kylo in the same scene and gets split in half... Rey does to real character development. No training and she beats Kylo and Luke... What an absolute joke these moves were. Ep 7 is not poetic or a book end, it's a cheap rip off of a New Hope. What a joke. You guys wasted your time trying to justify this abomination. I never thought I would say it. I am fond of the Prequels now. They had Resonance with the originals.

  • Then here is mu question: If Star Wars cannot possibly be told coherently due to many authors, why does the mcu can? Kevin Feige is there to make sure everything is going the right path but the writers of each movie have their own freedom within their installment. Even in the mcu we saw shift in tone, for example the way Dr Strange do magic. Then why star wars cannot possibly find one coherent voice and stick to it?

Doing great deeds that over time were put into one solid person. The family of Hercules or Achilles ect...stories brought forward over 1000 years... as for comparison Star Wars is trash...imagine Odysseus wins the war (death Vader does that in Jedi) but in a later telling Troy survived and it was actually Aneas grandkid that beat Troy!

I'm here to inform you that because two different movies have two different scenes where Harrison Ford plays the character Han Solo, or two different movies have two different man-made planet-killing star laser bases, does not mean they have "resonance". It means one was written first and it was good, and so the second one copied it because it was creatively bankrupt. Thank you this, this is the end of the discussion and you're fired.

  • I like Rian Johnson’s Looper and Knives Out, but his first approach to Star Wars was trash 🗑. He forced HIS vision into / onto / all over Star Wars, vs. taking the material and melding it with some of what he wanted. The movie is as much about the artists vision as it is the consumers desires; feels like he ignored that except as required. Not saying I love J.J. Abrams material, but at least it was sticking more to what Star Wars has been and is now IMO.

  • Sequel trilogy sucks because it enforces on fandom new canon. Different authors adding new elements and writing new stories for that universe worked just fine before Disney. But then came greedy mouse and it didn't add to the work of the fans, in a lot of cases far superior to what Disney served the audience. No. They pushed reset button. No one would be bothered by it if like with Arthurian legends someone come and write an interpretation of the story where there was no round table, there was no cuckolding, there was no holy grail. Like, so fucking what? It is in public domain and anyone can make movies about king Arthur and Merlin. If we could do the same with Star Wars, where it is released to public domain and any one can make their Star Wars movie, the best would win, the worst would be forgotten and it would build up like Arthurian legends and Homer story. Mixing political messages into the movie didn't help. I don't know how can anyone in the right mind can claim that sequel > prequel.

  • This might be the most blantantly retarded video I've ever seen full way through. This channel used to not suck but lately it's freaking terrible. "Epics, changed because, 1 they were usually told by mouth so the details changed. 2 authors made there own interpretation of the stories. They were rarely if ever actual sequels. They were more or less remixes of one cultures story adapted for another culture. The culture adapting it added or changed a few things because it was a new story for their culture. Niether of these apply to starwars because we have those on video and it has had prequels and sequels made to it. Contradictions, plot holes, and character contrivances are not acceptable because the OT are available to anyone who wants to buy them. This video is just stupidity worded well. It is poetically retarded. I really hope Disney gave Wisecrack a big ass check for making this video. If they didn't, then the dude in this video just made himself and wise crack as a whole seem utterly and embarrassingly stupid! Anyone who thinks this video makes any intelligent points is painfully stupid. I have honestly never seen such an idiotic suggestion in my life. @Wise crack please do not make such stupid crap ever again

  • So, this video explains to me the definition of "resonance" as it pertains to storytelling, telling me that there are these ancient, basic elements of storytelling that have survived through countless generations of storytelling because those elements are something universally appealing to all humans. Something that anybody, regardless of their culture, language, or heritage, and understand and identify with because the message they carry is innately human. It then tries to tell me that a screen transition is an example of resonance because it is used in multiple films in the same story. A Lightsaber is not a resonant elements because it is popular and diffuse into pop culture, visual similarities like the 2 setting suns aren't resonant because they are widely recognizable. You're conflating iconography with resonance. You're not seeing the forest for the trees. The binary sunset scene is iconic not for it's visuals (or maybe nowadays it is, because people are so obsessed with superficial visual elements), it's iconic for the story contained within. Luke has just stormed out on his uncle because he feels that he is being held back; there's a whole wide world out there full of adventure and mystery, just out of Luke's grasp, and try as he might, he can't get anywhere because his familial obligations keep him right here's he's always been his whole life. It resonates because most people identify with that yearning, that desire to break free of their simple, monotonous life and do something novel, exciting, and wholly their own. That is what resonance means. A universal truth, or messages, conveyed through the subtext of a story that can take on many forms and be repeated or rearranged by any number of storytellers, in which the core truths and messages remain the same. The story beat of Achilles' Heel is resonant because it reminds us that nobody's perfect; everybody has a weakness, and everyone is vulnerable. The Trojan Horse is resonant because it reminds us that things aren't always what they seem, and that gifts can be cursed/poisoned, and not to take everything at face value. People have ulterior motives. That is what resonance means. It's not even a visual element; in fact, I would argue that if something's iconography is _exclusively_ visual, as in it has no deeper meaning that it's looks, that, by definition, it _can't_ resonate. Because resonance goes deeper than that.

  • I have to think the effects of adding a personal touch to your telling of a story has a much more jarring effect when the audience hearing that version numbers in the millions within a week, and when access to the original telling is so readily available. Also, the word "borrow" is so very, very generous here.
