I remember the first time V. Stiviano Renee posted this video. Up next, 8 ways to use your gimbal...
*** SPOILERS AHEAD for Stars Wars episodes 7 & 8*** Here's my issue with Rian Johnson. He wrote "The Last Jedi" will very little regard to anything "The Force Awakens" sets up storywise. Instead of continuing the story build-up Abrams started with "The Force Awakens", he went ahead and cashed out instead. Here's what I mean: Abrams sets up a really cool mysterious villain named Snoke. He is controlling the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. How does Johnson build the mythology of Snoke?? He revealsthe actual character as being fairly gangly. He is almost immediately killed in a pretty idiotic way. To me this (and everything other problem I have with Johnson) reeks of ego. Johnson wanted to have the climax in HIS movie instead of setting it up for the 3rd movie, who was originally going to be directed by another director. This trend continues with:
The main guy from the original Star Wars being killed.
The duel between Phasma and Finn.
All of these events should be the climax of the 3rd movie in my opinion. If I were a writer on this movie I'd suggest having Luke pass the torch to Rey in the 3rd movie. I'd have Finn almost killed by Phasma and I'd have Snoke reveal he's 2 steps ahead of Rey, not 5 steps behind in The Last Jedi.
Then there was other things Johnson did that were just bone-headed: the disappearance of the Knights of Ren and Finn's love interest switching from Rey to the Asian girl. There's other things that I could go into but I hope you get my point.
This is a great article! Thanks for posting.
Good news, V Stiviano, I found you a blog post on gimbal movement for you to write about!:
I played it backwards and at first I thought it said "liberateme", "save me"... but it's not "me". It said "liberate tuteme ex inferis."
