      I think I had the wrong idea about Yoda. I imagined the whole reason he was so revered was that he couldn't fight due to his size and that this weakness itself became his advantage, that he used the force itself to overcome for his small size. It was for that reason which was why you couldn't judge him based on his size, that he had compensated and excelled greatly in other areas. Here we see that idea just completely destroyed and they just show him flying around like a mini-superman. It's sort of like finding out that the buddha, in addition to reaching enlightenment, was also a John Wick style martial artist. It sort of distracts from the better aspects of his character. Even if it would be realistic in theory that he should know how to fight I think it was the wrong move for his character. I really flattens out his character and makes him seem less magical. He just seems like any other Jedi. This really doesn't seem at all like the same character from the OT, they are like completely different characters. In fact I would have far more respect if they made this character Yoda's brother or something and that Yoda had disappeared, off in meditation or something, prior the events of the prequels. Would have made a lot more sense without damaging the original character.

      Yeah, the CGI looked extremely fake and cartoonish.

              Yeah, you said that. And I said that before you did. Then I asked you what your point was and you just repeated it again here. The question was "Why did boomers hate this?", the answer is that we had a different concept of what the character was about, based on the OT.
              > You may not like it, but the character we got in the prequels works just fine with the OT.
              It doesn't work "just fine" for people who imagined the character differently than what we got. That's the whole point of my response.
              > No coulda shouldas necessary.
              You didn't really explain why these changes to the character were good. I explained why I thought they were bad. At least provide your own opinion for why you think it's a good change to have him flipping around like any other Jedi. Your position seems to be "it works just fine with the OT". That's not much of an argument.

                There are no changes. Prequel Yoda is OT Yoda at an earlier point in his life. OT Yoda is a result of the experiences that Prequel Yoda went through. Simple as.

                I won't argue with that. I never said my assumptions were correct. This doesn't prove that the creator made the right call by introducing these additions to the character like 20 year later.
                > It works fine for the story.
                I explained in detail why it detracts from the character. You did not explain how it "works fine" you just repeat this comment and say "the creator" decided it to be this way. By your logic if Leonardo Da Vinvi drew an enormous wiener in the mouth of the Mona Lisa in crayon just before he died it MUST be an improvement on the painting because the creator did it and always envisioned it to have been that way. I don't agree with your bad reasoning.
                > It doesn't matter if it didn't work for you
                It actually does. OP asked, I answered. If the question did not matter then it would not have been asked.
                > as that's just a personal issue you have with it.
                Many fans did not like this scene, it was not just me. OP isn't addressing me, he's addressing "boomers". In other words, an entire generation of people generally did not like this scene according to OP.
                > There are no changes.
                The PT introduced additions to the characters. These literally ARE changes.
                > Prequel Yoda is OT Yoda at an earlier point in his life.
                You realize these are not real characters right? That George Lucas introduced these additions to the character twenty years later. Like..We aren't talking about reality buddy.
                > OT Yoda is a result of the experiences that Prequel Yoda went through. Simple as.
                All of this was introduced by George Lucas in a film that came out twenty years later. In the film it may have taken place chronologically prior to the events of the OT but in reality the situation is reversed. Get a clue trolltard homosexual.

                I'm pretty sure this was a retcon. Even Lucas in the making of the PT comes out and says that the reason he decided to make Yoda fight was just that he presumed "everyone was waiting" to see Yoda "pull out his little laser sword and go to town".
                This was always a retcon of the character and was done for idiotic reasons, similar to most of the shit in the prequels.

                In the OT era, George Lucas envisioned Yoda as a non-warrior. He was a teacher, a master, not really much of a fighter. He wouldn't stand a chance against Darth Vader. That's why the whole PT is a fricking fever dream cash grab. He didn't give a frick about the characters and was just giving the audience whatever they wanted to see. I strongly suspect that after people rejected Jar Jar in TPM and it got mediocre reviews he threw in the towel and just didn't give a frick anymore and rushed the next two films and just gave the audience whatever he thought might make the most cash, then sold the thing to Disney. It really shows in the films, the whole thing is made in a computer and it's dumb as rocks. Only Millenials and Zoomers were young enough to like this slop because they associate it with being young and safe at home with mom and dad in the early 2000's. To gen-x and boomers we saw this as adults and could not stop laughing at how stupid the movies were.

            There was 0 character development in the prequels aside from George throwing a switch by having Anakin murder children, sperg, and force chokes Padme in the last 15 mins of the 3 movie series. You can't even call that "development" though.

          Yeah, I always imagined that Anakin would look more heroic and focus more on him as an incredible respect-worthy hero with immense power, played by someone like a young Sean Bean, young Daniel Day Lewis, or young Henry Cavill or something. NOT those actors but someone more like that with that sort of energy. Someone taller, a bit more charismatic and more heroic than the Hayden Christianson Anakin. I imagined it to be more like the OT but sort of like those dark fantasy video clips. I guess Hayden could have done it but it was more like how he was directed and he just seemed autistic and bratty. I wanted to see a real hero, someone truly respectable and admirable that falls to the dark side for highly compelling and complex reasons. Instead I sort of saw a whining backstreet boy that was hardly a "hero" who turned to the dark side for incredibly stupid reasons with a backdrop of incredibly fake looking looney tunes cgi. I actually didn't mind the background cgi stuff the fake looking buildings and everything, but the cgi storm troopers and flipping characters, it just looked so cartoonish that I didn't really even care about what I was looking at because I was virtually watching cartoons.

            If you watched Hayden's scenes from the new Star Wars slop Disney puts out (or really any other movie he has been in that isn't AOTC or ROTS) he's a completely competent actor. Lucas is just a bad director.

              He was using his actual voice in that show, whereas he used a lighter voice in the movies to emulate Hamill's performance. Hayden's performance was based on Jame Earl Jones' speech patterns, while taking bits from Hamill, Fisher and Jake Lloyd.

        The dialogue is awkward and feels like something written by a middle schooler attempting to mimic shakespeare. They also have no chemistry together, Portman acts extremely wooden while Christensen is giving 200%. I find it hard to believe Padme loved him when every scene has Portman making no attempt to seem interested.

              Because he's a Jedi and they're not allowed to love and have families. Other Jedi got in at 3, while he got in at 9, making him different from all the rest by default. So of course it's gonna be harder for him to suppress his emotions when he had a whole childhood of not doing that.

    The OT established that Yoda and his darker mirror, Palpatine, were beyond the crass use of swinging around a blade. They had more cerebral sage like approaches to the force that made them feel more powerful. They could flaunt their power when they wanted/needed to, through other means... like palpatines tortuous force lightening or Yoda effortlessly moving around an x wing... but for the most part their purpose and application of the force is to see a bigger picture. Palpatine uses incredible manipulation and foresight while Yoda patiently waits for the time that he can act as a proper mentor.

    It looks like a video game (because it essentially is). Every move yoda makes it a jump-roll, he can't walk anywhere and he can't just jump, he has to roll like a JRPG character. They both just swing at the air senselessly especially with yoda who makes twice as many swings as dookie but they're all at nothing. The strongest jedi warrior gets delayed/defeated by a single stone column, which must have been purely decorative or moving it would have brought down the ceiling (why didn't he just set it on the spaceship?) The whole thing is absurd.

      Luke turned off his lightsaber because he didn't want to kill his dad and only came there in the first place to save him. To kill Vader in a fit of rage would be to defeat the entire purpose of even going there, and he redirected that anger at Sidious, purposefully NOT killing Vader specifically because it was the one thing Sidious wanted him to do. It wasn't about "killing is le bad", Luke personally killed hundreds of thousands of people up to this point and his friends were in the process of killing hundreds of thousands more, and it was never presented as a moral failing.

      No, it's that oversaturation cheapens the appeal. It's not difficult to understand. Excalibur is a cool weapon, it's cool because it's unique and special.

        nta but the trade federation are upset due to bullshit regulations in the senate, which are implied to have been caused by sheev
        sheev, in his sidious guise, offers a deal to the trade federation to gain them more power/ money so long as he does what he says with naboo, which starts with a blockade
        if not for sheev the trade federation would've folded as soon as qui gon and obi wan arrived, as they are ultimately cowards
        the only reason they stick with sidious is because they are more scared of him than the jedi/ senate
        all of this is a ploy to oust valorum from being chancellor and get sheev elected by using the crisis to garner sympathy votes from people he doesn't have full control over
        even if everything didn't go 100% according to plan, sheev was able to adapt to the situation changing and plan accordingly
        the only thing he didn't expect was padme returning to naboo and using the gungan army as a decoy, but that didn't matter as by the time the trade federation was defeated they had outlived their usefulness to sheev and he was elected chancellor anyways
