Star Wars The Last Jedi was fun…
There are spoilers here by the way, so beware…
The first new Star Wars was very “full of respect”, and people complained a little about it. Like a too proper remake of Episode IV. I liked it!
Then the second one (Last Jedi it is) was much more inventive, and people screamed. “Too different!”. Pfff…
The truth is… it’s entertainment. So breathe and let’s relax your glans, buddy!…
I wrote an article about this. The director is pretty smart, and he sewed his film with many many indications saying : Do. Not. Be. So. Serious.
Fantards are so boring…
Relax, and it’s full of fun! Follow Yoda :
- Luke Skywalker: The sacred Jedi texts?
- Yoda: Oh, read them, have you? Page-turners they were not.
When miss purple hair in The Last Jedi decides to sacrifice, she launches light speed then hit the vilain’s big ship. BIM. In silence. This has a tremendous effect!
Because yes in all Star Wars movies you hear vessels passing by (brrrmmmmmm), you hear blasters and lasers, pioooooo, zaaaaaap, etc, but that’s nonsense, because in space, there’s no air, thus NO SOUND. Nothing. Silence. Eternal.
Two films understood this : Serenity (which is a great little filmdirected by the Avengers guy : Joss Whedon), and Gravity, by A. Cuaron.
When terrible things happen in space in these movies, you hear just fucking NOTHING.
And, dang : that’s much much more effective.
Like in the sacrifice scene in the Last Jedi.
What does that mean, tell me? Less is more?
Thanks for reading!
