    If nothing else at least more time in editing because there are some mistakes that could have been caught somewhere in editing and fixed without too much trouble.

    I think some people are just miserable in their lives so this is their way of venting. You see it on most fandom sites. People that are unhappy just like to whine and complain about things that most people just could really care less about. If you showed some of what is said here to normal people (as in non-fans) they would probably think the person is all sorts of crazy. I have done that before and my friends are like, wtf is wrong with these people? They must leave really sad and pathetic lives to get so worked up over a movie. Don't like it? Don't watch it again. It's a lot easier to sit back and nitpick at something then doing something with your own life to change something you don't like I guess. Some of it does make for good comedy though.

    I liked the movies. Were there things I wish had been in them or taken out? Sure. But whining about it for a few years doesn't change anything.

    Some people like the movies and some don't. That's just how life works, not everybody can like what others like, and that's ok..

    Well then, that's on you.

    I'm not trying to make friends when it comes to the movie forum. There are too many polarized people and the opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and they all stink. (Pro and con, I'll be fair.)

    Why should I take the moral high ground when...

    ...stuff like this happens? The instant one person lost their shit, mentally, was the moment I stopped going the moral high ground with them. I call it as I see it and I'm sick and tired of hearing people complain and praise. They're movies. Silly movies. That's the long and short of it.

    But...if you didn't like one or more, chances are the other one or two aren't going to be any better and it's just a waste of your time and money.

    Hell no. I know you're joking, but no. I don't want them to see it, period. There's no point. It'll either bring out the die hard fans who go nuts, or the naysayers who go even nuttier. Yay. What fun. I want them to save their money and go find something else to do. Like maybe another fandom, perhaps.

    Actually, yeah. It is. It's been almost 30 years. People have said the same things over and over 'til they're blue in the face. Nothing new or groundbreaking will be said. I can't imagine it's possible. If there's some new idea or statement that can be made, I'll be shocked. Even then, if it is uttered, it'll devolve back into "GEEWUN 4EVER!" or "GEEWUN SUX!" It's just a matter of time.

    Okay, I left this topic alone for a couple of days, then come back to see that I've yet again opened a can of worms. Some are tired of it, others make hypothesises of the issue, and still others excuse themselves. For the latter catagory, I have only this to say- you can bitch at a f*ckton of other things other then this movie.

    [​IMG]

    LIKE THAT.

    [​IMG]

    OR THAT.

    [​IMG]

    OR EVEN okay maybe not that.

    Point is, why bitch at a single group of movies at beat a dead horse with another dead horse? You can use that dead horse to beat a bajillion other horses.

    End of line.

    I'm not sure which is worse. The fact that you compared the film trilogy to Hitler or the fact that it took three pages before someone called you on it.

    God I love the smell of argumentive opinions and even more argumentive replies in the morning.

    By the way Stonecrusher, as much as I see what your'e doing, this site doesn't need more debates, and since your a Pokemon fan, I have to say, I LOVE GEN 6 ALREADY!!! (As long as there are no ice creams or garbage bags)

    Just throwing that out there. My opinion. Nothing more.

    And by the way, I'm waiting to see how the rest of the line up looks.

    Pretty sure the 'Till all are one' phrase actually refers to them all dying and being one with the well of sparks ><

    I was semi-joking about his point about you spending money to go watch the films and your counterpoint being that you need to see them to review them. His point was actually;

    Essentially what he is saying is... why pay to see a movie that you dont like? In which case i was jokingly hinting that you should watching the movie online in order for you to get an opinion on it - seeing as he suggested - no point wasting your money on a film you dont like.

    Try not starting a new post every 5 minutes talking about how great the movie was and how they should stop complaining about it... see if that helps.

    You have to look at from a fan perspective. Fans really don't care that there are worse movie out there like when the American Godzilla movie completely and totally botched everything about one of film's greatest monsters.

    What fans want is for their franchise to be better than the other franchises. There are fans who don't worry about if Revenge of the Fallen is better than Battlefield Earth, they want Transformers films that are better than Star Wars. Fans don't worry if the Autobots are better team of heroes than X-Men 3, they want Autobot heroes who are better than the Avengers.

    Some fans just aren't going to be happy with good enough when what they wanted was Decepticons who could be on the short list of greatest film villains.
