        It's funny that people keep claiming that it's somehow better with the Japanese dub. But if you actually understand a modicum of Japanese, it's the same exact bullshit dialogue. Seriously, the "I don't like sand" scene isn't any better in Japanese, it's just that if you don't know what's being said, you can pretend that it's something profound based on the delivery (which you could do with Hayden Christensen's delivery as well if you didn't know English).

    The prequels are the story of the rise and fall of the OT villains (both Vader and Palpatine). They both need superhuman qualities to justify their quick ascent to power.
    Rey is just a literal who that comes from nowhere to replace beloved male character because the force is female. Now as your generation says, commit unalive, homosexual.

                When obi wan and yoda fled, the entire galaxy had been taken over by a dictator, who was also a sith. It made sense to bide their time, because they'd probably be rounded up and killed if they just stuck around in public. Luke fled when the galactic republic was still in charge, after one of his former students turns.
                Also, Obi Wan immediately jumped at the opportunity to get involved and help Luke when he heard about the message from Leia

                And for the record, there is absolutely a right way to portray Luke's fall. Painting everyone who hates Luke in TLJ as some fanboy who just wants to see him as a god is completely disingenuous and continues to make your argument look shittier by association. Fans absolutely would have accepted Luke's fall if it had been done properly. What we got was the majority of it happening off screen, with five minutes of convoluted flashback exposition to explain that he had a plot device vision, went to talk to his nephew, decided to kill his nephew but then totally decided it against it but it was too late cause his lightsaber and there was a funny little misunderstanding and then Kylo also killed all his peers in self-defense lol. It fricking sucked and no amount of strawmanning is going to convince people that it didn't fricking suck.

                I don't actually think people would have accepted it. The movie came out in 2017 at the absolute height of pushing beloved characters into being absolute wrecks for an easy sequel and it was still hotly contested. It was just a bad idea. Literally everyone has seen or is intensely familiar with star wars. Luke would've been better off being written out in an X-Wing accident offscreen. I don't think people appreciated it and I don't think they would even if it were written a thousand times better. Some things you should not try to get clever with and one of them was the fate of the main character of the biggest movie of all time that everyone from 5 to 75 has positive happy memories about.

                When Vader threatens Leia, Luke realizes that his pacifism puts her at risk. And in that scenario time is not on his side since escape is not an option, not with both Vader and Palpatine after him. In the ST, Luke’s pacifism towards Kylo could also put his othervstudents at risk given his vision. The difference though is that with Kylo he has time to try something rational before trying something drastic. Kylo was asleep, not threatening anyone in that instant

                And he had all the time to stay hidden in ROTJ. But that's not who Luke is. Luke is someone who acts out of his instincts. Well, he did back then. By the time his TLJ falshback took place, he had learnt to control himself enough to not strike down at Kylo like he struck down at Vader.
                >The pressure existed in the former but was way lower than the latter
                The pressure was the exact same: The threat that someone might hurt someone he cared about. Just that in the former case it was only Leia, in the latter it was Leia, Han and pretty much everyone else.

                It’s reasonable to think Vader would have found him eventually, Luke isn’t getting out of that throne room alive which makes the situation way worse. To put it another way, it’s like you are saying a stalker in your house is equally as stressful as getting a message that a stalker knows where you live. Both are bad but the first is a literal fight or flight scenario whereas in the second you have time to work with the authorities or go to a safer place

                Yeah but Luke didn’t know that. That’s why he tried to kill Palpatine, once he learned it was all a setup, he figured there was a very real chance the Rebels wouldn’t get to the core

                People seem to forget that the Emperor's throne room was pretty small and the only real hiding place was underneath the raised section where the throne sat. Luke was less hiding and more cornered.

                But that’s just it, if Vader felt Luke’s killing intent, it would be much harder for Luke to pull off a surprise attack. Luke was more preoccupied with his friends/family than killing Vader/Emperor in that moment. The Kylo/Snoke situation doesn’t apply here since Vader already knew who Luke was after given his first failed attempt

                It depends on the type and quality of the hyperdrive. The Millennium Falcon had a souped-up Class 0.5 drive that was extremely fast so it could travel much more quickly than most other ships. For comparison standard Imperial hyperdrives were Class 1 and most civilian ships had Class 2 drives, both slower by a significant amount.

    Everyone hated those three attributes/plot points for Anakin. And the difference is that Anakin has personal shortcomings and multiple failures with real consequences. The entire point of the prequel narrative is how hard he fricks up in spite of everything he had going for him. He's forced to struggle for what he wants, and a number of characters openly display their apprehension about him.

    Rey has everything handed to her. Lightsabers, starships, droids, etc etc. She has inexplicable skills and abilities, and no real personal shortcomings. Allies immediately love her, and enemies respect her. Every character, new and old, revolves around her in some way. She rarely makes mistakes, and when she does it either works in her favor (Snoke and dying and Kylo becoming increasingly infatuated with her) or has no lasting consequence (Chewie died but actually he didn't). Anakin's story ends as a mutilated shell of who he once was, while Rey's ends with her proudly declaring herself Skywalker while the legacy characters nod in approval.

      Rey’s journey begins in isolation and hardship on Jakku. Unlike Anakin, who is identified as the Chosen One early on and has a clear path within the Jedi Order, Rey lives a life of uncertainty and struggle. She is abandoned by her family and forced to survive as a scavenger, highlighting her resilience and resourcefulness from the start. Her quest to understand her identity and place in the galaxy becomes a central theme, filled with uncertainty and internal conflict.
      Rey's journey is also marked by significant losses and personal growth. The death of Han Solo deeply affects her, and she struggles with the immense responsibility of being the last hope for the Jedi. The revelation of her lineage and the burden of choosing her path despite this truth is a profound challenge. By the end of her story, Rey's decision to take on the Skywalker name is not a simple, triumphant moment. It's the culmination of her struggles with identity, belonging, and legacy. It symbolizes her acceptance of her place in the galaxy and her commitment to continuing the Skywalker legacy, honoring those who came before her.

        Correct. Honestly the sequels are some of the worst movies ever written, especially 7 and 9. JJ Abrams is a fricking blight upon society itself. At least the side content that came out of the prequel era was good.

      They're both bad but the prequels gain an edge by not being made during "the force is female" woke trend. I mean you know it's going to end with Anakin becoming Vader so it's not very surprising plus it gets hammy and boring but it's still better by virtue of having nothing to do with Disney or Rian Johnson.

      messiah prophesized to "bring balance to the force".
      The jedis "good side", were dominating too much of the galaxy with their interpretation of the force.
      By decimating the jedis and killing the last major proponent of the sith, he as messiah brought balance. Removed the "bullshit" interpretations of the force, and brought in Luke skywalkers "grey" middle ground force position. (what Qui gonn and other characters in Rebels for example call "the living force".

      tldr
      jedis and sith were wiped out, this brought balance to the force. Jedi wasn't necessarily the "good" side.

      She's correct. The reason we dislike her character is because of sexism, but it's a correct and reasonable type of sexism.

      Was Palpatine born overpowered or did he actually have to train? He had a master who taught him did he not? Rey being just able to do everything with no effort is ridiculous. If she had become ultra powerful by actually training properly it might have felt more believable, but they DELIBERATELY omitted that because "the Force is female"

    It's probably different because Anakin was clearly set up as an enslaved kid who had to abandon his mother, so there's a whimsical feeling of wanting to root for him where him succeeding just feels better, plus we knew at the time Anakin was going to turn evil so his skill had a menacing quality and it was obviously setting up something tragic. There's just way more going on than Rey had going on in 7
    Having said that, Anakin definitely was similarly an empowerment fantasy for kids just like Rey was for girls, so Phantom Menace does feel corny in a way

        What TLJ did was to attract Star Wars fanboys to film discussion, believing that they knew what they were talking about because they'd watched CinemaSins and read TVTropes.

      I don't really care Black person. If a character is too good at shit but it paints a good picture thematically, or is compelling to watch, it's fine and I'm not gonna nitpick.
      If the character is too good and it comes at the expense of the others in ways that indicate the writer is dick riding their favorites then it sucks and I tune out.

        TPM is a family film. Therefore, it will have things in there for the kids to enjoy.

          the goal to making a family film is to not be grating to adults. otherwise you've made a kid's movie, and kids will watch literally anything.

    Historical revision. Anakin creating 3PO is a textbook example even today that not everything in the story needs to be interconnected and the immaculate conception of him was always contrived eyeroll shit.

    Neither one is a dead ringer, though they both have some of the traits. Rey checks more mary sue boxes than anakin does marty stu. The most obvious being that that a mary sue would never murder innocent sand people. Even if they had to justify it post fact it would never be treated as bad.

    People on Cinemaphile in the 2000s literally hated the prequels and thought this shit was forced and corny. Anakin is just as bad as Rey.

    Anakin was a slave. He had to learn or die. Rey was a poor neet but otherwise lived an okay life (ie me). She had no reason for why she'd know about ship mechanics.

    Any woman portrayed as a “hero”. Women are not heroes. They can at times do heroic things. But hero is the sole domain of the man. Cheers!

    Yeah but we know Anakin went through a lot of training over a decade to fine tune and fully harness his “messiah” power. It wasn’t like Rey where she ages like two years by the time she becomes a force god queen b***h who is unstoppable.

      Rey never won a single fight in the whole trilogy without the other party being at a significant disadvantage that was completely out of her control. How exactly is that "unstoppable"?

    Rey was a literal scavenger who was good at shooting, granted, but Anakin (if we only look at the prequels) got training by a master Jedi, while she didn't and she barely struggled to get it right.

    Anakin was very much a Mary Sue in TPM but we all knew where he would end up at when watching it for the first time, so it was interesting to see how this talented kid would become the actual right hand man of space hitler and we see him struggle and fail a bunch of times in Eps 2 and 3

    Rey is just consequently the best at everything for 3 movies non stop and she never really fails or even trips, her only real motivation is finding out about her past and then after finding it, she quickly kills it in revenge like any Jedi would do. Sequel trilogy would have worked much better if it centered on Kylo Ren, who actually has a much more compelling arc

    The people who propagate the "Anakin was a Mary Sue too" argument must be severely moronic. We already knew Anakin was Darth Vader, so the Chosen One prophecy and Anakin's apparent Mary Sue-ness is dramatic irony and a subversion of those types of characters. It's a much more clever and subtle kind of subversion than TLJ's stupid gotcha moments.

    Unrealistic skills and abilities while having no flaws.
    Anakin cannot be a Mary Sue because he has flaws.

      Anakin didn't even have unrealistic skills.
      He was good at one frickin thing, being a pilot.
      He wasn't even a particularly powerful Jedi.

          He was a turbo good pilot and half of that was because he was force sensitive.
          Black folk in Africa can successfully put a PC together, why wouldn't he be able to cobble together a protocol droid when he's enslaved by a fricking junker??
