Star Wars gave us the Lightsaber. Disney threw it away. Why doesn’t Disney understand Star Wars and especially the lightsaber? We all wanted one as a kid, now, not so much. I’ll also show you which movie Rian Johnson copied for the Throne Room scene. It will surprise you. What has Kathleen Kennedy done to Star Wars?

You may hate TFA, I get it, but you gotta give it credit for not being as bad as TLJ, hopefully JJ can redeem both himself and Star Wars with the Rise of Skywalker.

Also, at Hollywood Studios, they sell the same Lightsaber for different prices and have different names, like Rey's Saber, Luke and of course Anakin's, but, all that's different is the scratches.

Star wars died when disney got a hold of it

I assume Anakin called it a laser sword because that's what George Lucas thinks they're called as of about 1997. "Laser swords" and "gungas" that was the Phantom Menace.

The throne room fight scene was awful, but doesn't she just grace the face because she's trying to stay "composed" like on the island where she trains on the rock, she just tries to touch it rather than cutting it in half. Idk im just guessing here. :p

Star wars got so bad so quick with the final trilogy that I cant even be bothered to see the last one. And when I was young Star Wars ignited my love for cinema, and I loved the shit out of it. This video really gives a lot of specific reasons why it went to poo, and yes the throne room fight scene was shocking when you look at closely like you did! Hwoever for me it was the utter laziness of the story writing (ie just recycle the old stories again and again) that killed it. The first of the final 3 was literally just the first star wars again. FFS We wait all that time and all that you can do is come up with another fucking death star?
BTW my penis is small But anyway
The thrones room fight scene looked so cool in the cinema but when slowed down I could not stop laughing. The part that got to me was when one of them threw there weapon away in order to die 😂

Really? Because he hit him worth the lightsaber without killing him? Have you ever heard of purposefully inflicting pain on an enemy? Your channel is so pathetic. Petty petty petty. You’re going to complain about choreography like it wasn’t a joke in the original trilogy.

Honestly. I don't consider anything after 2014 as canon. Which Lucas hadn't sold out like a bitch to the fuckheads at Disney. Would love if something happened to Disney and they'd go under and have to file bankruptcy.

I think Luke calls it Laser sword because Mark Hamill says that in his mind this is another Luke and another “time line” so He just sneak that line to set the tone of the movie and his mind

You could give that level of analysis/nitpicking to any other saber fight from these movies. Did you ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe, the lightsaber just wasn’t long enough in those moments?

1st point: I imagine all of the "grazing cuts" were more like near-misses with the very tip of the lightsaber, or like a light draw cut. 2nd point: Finn gets his ass beat every time he tries to use a lightsaber. He's definitely not trained but like, it's better than charging someone with a crowbar, right? 3rd point: The armor that those red guards are wearing is a specifically lightsaber resistant material. Highly uncommon hence the royal guard status. More of an old expanded universe lore-thing. 4th point: The Ray training scene was displaying a Type 1 stance which does focus on that kind of "silly" wide arching swing. It's mostly to get a more natural feel of the lightsaber's weight and range. In practical combat some of those "techniques" are actually useful for knocking back an enemies lightsaber with raw kinetic force, since lightsabers do tend to catch and "bite into" one another like you'd expect from a steel weapon. 5th point: When Khylo was fighting Finn, he was more or less just screwing with him. 6th point: No, you're right, the royal guards in the fight scene were acting extremely stupid and could have killed Khylo and Ray a dozen times over if they decided to stop actively trying not to hurt them. The choreography was downright terrible.

Why would he call it a laser sword? It’s called sarcasm yo. Also it’s not like Kylo put the whole damn saber through his back. *just the tip baby* this video is just another example of hardcore fake nerds trying way too hard to not like something.
DaemonCaedo1 Hace 22 horas
Even Mark Hamil doesn't really like a lot of the new movies. =\ 11:15 well you can't really compare talent like Ray Park to Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley. It's like they just got frustrated with them and said "Well this is the best we're going to get, we'll have to fix it in editing."

This is inspiring! I used to think someone needed talent, insight, or at least some level of originality to have a ESvid presence, but turns out you just need cheap overlay effects, an apparent blindness to completely contradictory arguments, and a willingness to pander. The joke is really on all those fake fans who think you need to waste time examining things, or even think there can be more than a surface level meaning to anything, let alone two sides to an argument. True geniuses always realize that anything that differs from the way they think it should be is just stupid and wrong. That’s all there is to it.

I dont understand this "its a Lightsaber not a Laser Sword" thing. A Laser IS Light...wtf guys...what you are talking about. I understand that Lightsaber sounds better but technicaly its no difference.

Idk, i probably dislike the new trilogy as much as you. That first point though, of people only getting injured by lightsabers, did you forget Obiwan with his fight with Dooku got a nick on his thigh in ep2? I agree tho, that throne room scene was kind of bad, but the other extrapolations, lile the lightsaber losing meaning, bit reaching.

"The coolest weapon of all time" up for debate really, I'm more of a nuclear bomb from afar instead of a light-saber up close kind of guy. XD All things aside though, really hate the new movies, never been a huge fan of Star wars overall, but it had a fun aspect to it that I did like, that was taken out by Disney. Heck I wanted this series to become darker and less of a gag, not lighthearted and a walking joke.

also remembering how, since lightsabers needed huge battery packs in days of old, they got some new self coil system, which basically meant it was self contained in the little handheld saber stick handle but it constantly wanted to point straight up. forcing itself upward. balancing upright. not anymore....

This is why I was upset that disney made new films.... if they just had shown the script to a star wars expert (may I call you that?) like you it could have been much better in those scenes. But all in all I‘m glad that Star wars came back.... well.... with cute creatures like the penguin thing to make and sell plushies....

Fight scenes with alot of people attacking one or two guys are hard to do. Same thing with the "tower of joy" fight from game of thrones. Horrible choreo, the whole fight is based on the "everyone waits their turn to attack so the main character can defend himself"-scheme.

Luke called it a laser sword to show how ridiculous that sounded. He then later “faced” down the first order as a distracted him and he wasn’t actually there. And kylo is teasing him and he didn’t even cut that deep. Neither did Rey. And KYLO WAS SHOT WITH A GUN THAT SENDS STORMTROOPERS FLYING!! Luke is also an old man who can’t do much. And how could someone hate the throne room scene. And yeah it’s not practical but not many scenes are. And she didn’t cut deep again.

Acorrding to KK, Ray can do all that and more cause she is a woman. and if you don´t agree you are a misogenist, end of story. Fuck Disney.

A lightsaber is a lightsaber, all are awesome. And yes while Anakains lightsaber is hard to believe that they found it, this is a universe where you have to suspend reality. Like the reality of battle droids is that they are really interesting in the clone wars show, but in the movies they suck. And yes the cgi is different it’s still Star Wars. Epic fights, awesome characters. And if you want to nit pick then let’s nit pick Spider-Man 3 Peter finds his engagement ring in the AIR at NIGHT falling off a building. Also the planet under cloud city has a surface, there could be people down there that found the lightsaber bought and sold it over and over till it ended up where we found it.

Disney also wants to destroy the image and mystique of the lightsabre because some view it as a symbol of masculinity or 'maleness'. Which has to be destroyed for it to be more universal. That's why in STAR WARS REBELS you are getting the Sith Inquisitors using lightsabres as helicopter propellers and flying through the air with them rotating around in a circle. Its to destroy the lightsabre and its symbolic meaning.

I don’t understand how people think the new films “ruined” lightsabers when we saw a robot lizard man, who had no connection to the force whatsoever, spin four of them like they were airplane propellers. How does something like that carry the same weight as a samurai-like Luke holding his sword with subtlety and grace in TLJ? Also I don’t think anyone can compare the dialogue of the Crait fight to literally any scene, let alone fight, from the Prequels and say it’s somehow worse than those.
