Disney Doesn't Understand Lightsabers

  • 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?

    I was expecting a more insightful and measured critique; the mocking is overdone (it's not engaging)

    or you know more of a pg 13 light saber for children does Disney not know light sabers or do you not know Disney there isn't much to your argument in this other than bitching and wishing you had old light sabers. don't blame Disney if anything blame PC culture and having to cater to peoples sensitivity

    There's examples in all the movies of somebody getting "sliced" but not cleaved in half with the lightsaber. Say I got shot at...if a bullet grazes the outside of my arm it's will leave a vastly different injury than if it landed in the center of my arm. The slice to Finn's back actually could have been more of a flesh wound and it would have been cauterized by the saber's heat. Also, Finn was a trained Imperial soldier from a young age. Just cause they mainly rely on blasters does not mean he's not trained in hand to hand combat. Otherwise what would they do if their blaster malfunctioned or ran out of power. While he wouldn't had trained with a lightsaber, I'm sure he has skills that would apply to allow him to hold his own against a severly injured Kylo Ren. Do ppl purposefully forget he was shot by Chewie's bow...a weapon they spent the movie building up as being really destructive. He was using all the force...literally and figuratively...to keep himself standing...he wouldn't have been fighting at his best. As for the recovery. With all the advanced technology...by our standards...I'm sure something exists to help folks heal pretty quick out there.
    Also in terms of Luke making the lazer sword comment...it's obvious he was being sarcastic.

    You know the new movies are bad when I'm feeling nostalgic for the prequels.

    Even The Clone Wars (kid's show) displayed quintuple decapitation scenes, while these new Disney dumpster fires only show scratches... what a shame

    Not a big SW fan, but after watching your vids, I learned how much Disney ruined the franchise.
    Keep up the awesome videos! Very quality content.

    Obviously they’re just giving away lightsabers like participation awards in kids sports 🤦‍♂️

    It's PG-13 thats why. Robot mutilation is ok, no human dismemberment allowed. It's a movie/tv show, not real life. The choreography was straight up WWE though. Like come on, WWE might have even done that better.

    Honestly, I think you brought up a few valid points. Though, on the other foot, the majority of this video was you whining about creative choices that were made (not just by Disney, as a lot of the same crew likely worked on the films.. The company, lucasfilms, changed hands, but it's not like they cut ALL the staff and replaced them.. idiot). Regardless, the film may not have been the best in the Star Wars franchise, but it's not like the others weren't riddled with plot-holes/actor errors and the exact same things you mentioned here.
    Oh no.. Luke's turned in to an old man, hiding away, not wanting anything to do with the universe, the Force, or Jedi any longer.. That.. That actually makes sense. It makes sense that he'd call them laser swords. He's disrespecting the Jedi line. Likely because it did as much harm as it did good.
    Sure, the one guy in the throne room scene should have killed Rey. In mid-fight, when you're both scared of death and your adrenaline is pumping, you'll likely make a mistake. Kylo hits the floor a few times.. So what? He's a young person, who may have trained for a few years, but even then.. Are you kidding me? Mid fight, multiple enemies, shit happens. Same can be said for the Elite Praetorian Guard .. So you're fighting and fighting and fighting.. You get run at, arm held, you drop your other blade, you don't expect her to drop and grab her weapon.. Maybe she used the Force on his arm preventing him from killing her? Go with the flow and stop nit picking on the SMALLEST things and enjoy the film.
    Now, I agree Finn should have died from his slash-across-the-back, if it were a bit deeper. Due to the angle, I personally saw the slash as a.. graze, more than anything. Same with Kylo's face. Maybe his helmet, likely made of the same lightsaber repellent material as shown in this film and the last was just better able to block certain parts and he was left with a big cut/burn? Who knows. Doesn't make the film any worse because they added tension that ended in near-death as opposed to death.

    They should just let Pablo Hidalgo direct the new films

    Damn, used to think that scene was the only redeeming one in the movie, but you've ruined it for me lol. Other than that stab on the ground, that shit was just weird. I guess Kylo can make the lighter saber stop going through the ground like butter to prop himself up. He did stop a blaster bolt, but that shit was highly impractical.
