So with the new Star Wars coming out in the US today I decided to go ahead and ask the question that's been bugging me. Is Star Wars boring? I mean I grew up surrounded by it. The cartoon series the light sabers toys. I grew up with it all but I never sat down to watch all the movies until recently. Before then the only movie I'd seen was The Phantom Menace and seeing how much that movie got shat on I thought I was in for a treat. Don't get me wrong I understand it's dated and you can't compare it to modern day movies but I've watched 2001 a space odessey and that movie still holds up in my opinion. But Star Wars was just boring to me. Am I missing something? Is there some explanation of the plot that makes it more interesting?
I'm gonna have to watch all of them first to know for certain what I feel and think about them. Without a doubt the original trilogy would probably be better than the Trilogy of Prequels and possibly better than the new film that was recently released.
The androids R2D2 and C3P0 have some of my attention. Gonna want to discover more about those kind of characters.
I find myself more into Horror mixed with Science Fiction, and as well as Action. Examples are the Alien movies, Event Horizon, or The Thing. Still trying to think of some well known Space Futuristic Horror Sci-Fi themed movies.
Star Wars can be boring IF you go into with without the intention of getting to like it. If you have the mindset that it will be boring, the yes perhaps the movie won't change your mind. It doesn't have anything super unexpected like, say, Interstellar did. That movie started off boring af but it was just SO good at the end.
If you're referring to the clone wars cartoon don't use that as a judge. That show is horrendous and I don't care what Disney says it's not canon in my eyes. Honestly I ignore anything that isn't part of the original trilogy (unaltered. fucking Han shot first), the extended universe stuff and the Old Republic stuff. Everything else is crap.
You know what's boring? Lord of the Rings. The story is amazing. The history Tolkien created is amazing. BUT... he was a linguistics professor, not a novelist. I read it as a kid and loved it, but I tried reading it again as an adult and couldn't make it past chapter two.
I love how 100% of guys here love star wars, it's only the girls that are 50 50 haha
Not to me but it's not surprising if you do. It's a fact that everything will not be liked by everyone... The thing about Star Wars is it has made impacts to the cinema audience. It was different to other sci fi back in the 70's therefore made it memorable to generations to come..
