Okay, so I just spotted the following debate on our YouTube channel (beneath our original trailer), and had to share it, because, well, it’s an exceptionally entertaining example of GL-related internet banter. A real doozy. Here it is, completely uncensored and unedited, typos and all (parental discretion is advised)… enjoy..!
Jar Jar Binks was my favorite character. There I said it. The prequels were great, get over it. There was no “raping” of anyone’s childhood. Anyone who says that it did is full of crap.
@wadark hahahahahaahahahahaahahaha. mesa thinks your a c unt
@Scarface6992 Clever. Stay up all night writing that? OMG he said the “c” word, he must be so freakin clever. How old are you?
Took about 45 minutes. I used the dialectic process of thesis= you and your appreciation for the prequels, factoring in attack of the clones and dialog like “they’re like animals, so i slaughtered them… like animals”, then the antithesis= me, preference of the original trilogy and its cinematic influence from Kurosawa( see the hidden fortess) which then lead me to the synthesis…
I’m 17 and not fond of the man who raped my childhood, or any person who celebrates it.
take your cgi and leave
@Scarface6992 There are millions of ACTUAL rape victims in the world right now, screaming in anger at that phrase. George Lucas did nothing to your childhood. YOU did it to your childhood by getting WAY to into Star Wars. Get over yourself. You don’t like the prequels, don’t watch them, shut your eyes and just pretend they don’t exist. You’ll be much happier than right now, sitting spamming wherever you can about how George Lucas is the anti-Christ or whatever. Move on, friend.
” shut your eyes and pretend they don’t exist” this has nothing to do with rape? Ive never been into star wars that much however I sympathize with the millions of rape victims out there who saw the iconic representation of an era bent over and continually double penetrated with cgi characters and terrible dialog. Its true, I don’t have to watch them but their existence will still forever hold down and force itself into the cultural canon of the old trilogy, and for that I feel dirty and abused
@Scarface6992 Then that’s your own damn fault, not Lucas’s. Good night.
@wadark its my fault lucas created merchandise oriented prequels which spit in the face of their culturally significant precursors? well for that wadark, I apologize, maybe one day I will fully appreciate the sophistication of jar jar and his comedic wit and contribution to the films. Until then, I must concede that I have been bested. I end with this;
In August and at the age of 13, in a cinema full of people, George Lucas, for 133 minutes and through the medium of film…raped me.
@Scarface6992 Uh…no. George Lucas can do what George Lucas wants with George Lucas’s film. Fact 2: George Lucas didn’t create a “generation-defining” film. George Lucas created Star Wars; the FANS made Star Wars “generation-defining”. It’s not Lucas’s responsibility to live up to your expectations.
Its YOUR fault that you’re so into a fictional universe that you think creating a “terrible” installment constitutes rape. That is sad.
i’m not into a fictional universe, I just think your wrong- lucas IS in control of his own films, rape however is defined as an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation or violation. Once lucas created the prequels, fully aware of the position his films had been placed in (by the fans) within pop culture, by creating newer films that plunder, seize abuse and violate what has become ingrained within the context of cinematic history- Lucas committed rape.
Will the debate ever end?
