Star wars, a hew hope. A shitty kids movie that hasn't aged well, doesn't look good, basic simple plot, is only loved so much because of oldfag's nostalgia.

Still not explaining why the story itself is bad.

I didn't say the story is bad, I said it was basic. It's a formula that's been done since the beginning of story-telling time. Classic good V evil bullshit.

Other than superhero movies , I think it's avatar for sure , most people rate it as one of best movies ever, to me it's boring, too long, plot lacks depth, no character development, overall director is done poorly, very generic CGI sifi movie

you really hate Star Wars don't you?
or at least, you want to.
you want to appear "edgy" and "cutting away from the norm" so you whine about one of the most universally well-liked movies ever.
faggotry at its finest

I actually enjoyed the Phantom Menace, Jar Jar Binks was a funny character, probably one of the best characters in all of the movies, but the oldfags hated him because they are miserable oldfags.

Breakfast club and pulp fiction.
Both are shit movies but:
BC: It's just a bunch of fags who each think they're cool because one of them is good at sports, one is actually mentally ill, one is a stuck up bitch, one tried to kill himself, and one actually sexually harassed the stuck up bitch.They're all retarded, bland characters with no relatable qualities who end up as friends for no reason other than plot line.
Pulp fiction has a garbage plot and doesnt spend enough time on any one character for one to actually feel invested in that character. and by the time you are invested you just never see the character again, or they die, or reappear at the end of the movie.
Kill Bill is retarded too. We don't even know the main character's name until the second movie and the fighting is gratuitously bloody. But if all I wanted was blood I'd just watch a snuff film instead of sit through a stupid fucking movie.

What's edgy about not liking a movie? Maybe if I'd have seen it when I was young, I may* have the nostalgia for it, but I didn't see that shit until I was in my early 20's and just thought it looked dated and wasn't really that interesting, it also has a lot of bad acting in it by people who aren't the main cast. And the gold robot thing is just embarrassing

The character was funny, kind of. But the whole plot is just boring like every other star wars movie.
For those asking why I don't like the saga: it's just a rip off from joseph campbell work: the hero with thousand faces, but in a boring way without the philosophical/mythological interesting parts.

George Lucas even says you're all too old to like it

"r George Lucas stated that he feels there is a section of the fanbase who get upset with aspects of Star Wars because "the movies are for children but they don't want to admit that... There is a small group of fans that do not like comic sidekicks. They want the films to be tough like The Terminator, and they get very upset and opinionated about anything that has anything to do with being childlike."["

If you can't tell how well Star Wars has aged, you clearly haven't watched any other movies from the 70s.

It set the fucking standard for all of the garbage you watch and enjoy today.

Didn't see it at the cinemas and due to the hype i went and bought it on dvd for $20. Worst mistake

other movies from the 70s.

Alien, Close encounters, Clockwork orange, the exorcist - All 70's all better practical effects than Star wars

I'll never know how the original Star Wars got a sequel.

It's was a below average film, even for it's time.

The only redeeming feature was the relatively original setting.

Story sucked, characters sucked, acting really sucked and the direction was poor.

To be fair though, Lucas and the franchise have come a long way and they've got better for sure.

You're listing highly critically acclaimed curated content that's also aged well. I'm talking about the average movie from the 1970s. The average sci-fi movie specifically. Sci fi at the time was an incredibly poorly represented category in an era that still favored westerns, and Star Wars set the bar and remains a heavy influence to this day.

Putting aside for a moment that it has in fact aged extremely well for any movie of the time, let alone a sci-fi movie of the time, taking it out of context and comparing it to modern CGI and effects is childish, and saying it's a bad movie is the definition of contrarianism.

my guess is that you were born in the late 90s and have no idea what average movies were even like back in the 70s.

a new hope was the highest grossing movie of the entire decade by a factor of two. you don't put up those kinds of numbers as a "below average movie with bad acting and directing"

i don't think you children understand just how big this movie was in its day.

Alien, Close encounters.... And stop acting like I can't dislike a movie because I genuinely think it's shit, why does it have to be me being "contrarian" - I don't care how many people like or dislike it, if everybody hated it, I'd still hate it.

You guess wrong, friend.

have no idea what average movies were even like back in the 70s
Jaws, The Godfather, Rocky, Taxi Driver, The Exorcist, The Deer Hunter, Halloween.
Take your pick, plenty of quality films came out in the 70's. It was an excellent decade for filmography.

a new hope was the highest grossing movie
Taking money doesn't make it good. Remember, sheeple still buy Apple products in their millions.

i don't think you children understand
I think children understand perfectly, it was a film aimed at a young audience.

Now, I'm not saying it was bad, just very...meh. If an equivalent film of that quality was released today it wouldn't get a sequel.

I think it was helped by the fact that it was released at a fortuitous time. '77 was a fairly bland year for films. People didn't have anything else to spend their money on at the box office.

Close Encounters is barely sci-fi and unlike Star Wars has legitimately aged poorly. Alien came out two years after the fact, and again was more of a horror suspense movie than fleshed out sci-fi. The universe has since been built upon and is pretty interesting, but at the time it wasn't anything groundbreaking.

I'm not saying you can't dislike a movie for personal reasons. I can say that you're being contrarian for calling a movie shit when the overwhelming opinion is that it's one of the most important and influential of all time for good reason. Rejecting that kind of established popular opinion is the definition of contrarian.

Again, you're listing critically acclaimed curated content that has stood the test of time and is still talked about today.

Again, you're proving that you weren't alive during the 70s and have no idea what the average movie was like back then.

it was released at a fortuitous time. '77 was a fairly bland year for films.

You're just talking out of your ass at this point.

You are entitled to your opinion and I respect it.

Do tell me, have you read the book before seeing the movies or did you watch the movie and then read the book? Alot of my disdain for the movies comes from how I just saw things differently when I read the books as a wee lad
