Thank you, my words exactly. Here's to hoping they address this. Of course, this gets straight into morality territory, which a good number of people will argue wildly. My hope is that they actually give us in-story moral principles from the Force itself that can shape doctrine. It would please me more to argue about something based off something within a story rather than in real life.Areku wrote: ↑Wed Apr 19, 2017 11:53 pmProbably something about not being a self-righteous emotion-denying angst breeding-ground where rigid doctrine is sacred and consequences are ignored like the actual Jedi order. Seeing as how that la-la-la-covering-my-ears-I-can-do-no-wrong-cause-that's-how-I-was-trained attitude seems to be the primary cause of the Jedi's misdeeds/errors and lets the Sith monopolize the "coping with sentience" market...
The issue for me is the same Karen Travis had with the Jedi, and apparently she and I are heretics. So whatever. But let's be fair. As far as I care it's all good so long as we don't get silly Force Family mythos expansion, which sadly is more than likely, seeing as how Clone Wars is canon. *Shakes fist at Lucasfilm and Disney, and then sighs*
On another bit... it has been made clear to me that JJ apparently did not have any real answers to the mysteries he put into The Force Awakens, and they have convinced me with their evidence that it was merely style and blatant disregard for substance, citing his inclination for spinning mysteries without real purpose behind them. How in the world did the House of Mouse originally plan to give the entire movie trilogy to this guy? Or is it that this is but mere disgruntled internet hate-bait?
At least I've been thoroughly bolstered by endless praise from these other forums about the new director. Question: anyone here have an opinion on what they think of Rian Johnson? I am by no means a movie buff and have previously no interest or need to critique a movie director... Pardon and pamper my gross ignorance.
