Star Wars was "cool" long before I even knew it existed. I never asserted I was a forerunner to SW's popularity, and my depth of interest and knowledge about it hardly makes me a "hipster".
Plenty of other people are knowledgable, and have informed opinions on SW. I am not exclusive in that respect and never claimed to be. Those people are simply not the average movie watcher who barely even remembers the plot to half the SW movies, never mind their entire lack of knowledge of anything outside the 7 movies.
Books, games, and movies are about as "swag" as your 290X is "bling". I suppose you must be talking about the Force FX lightsabers? Yeah, only us hipsters have those.
And yes, EP 4, 5, and 6 were
bad. Take off the rose tinted glasses and you'll see they suffered all the same issues as 1, 2, and 3, and then some on top of that. You don't even need to be steeped in SW lore to see that (although it does add to the argument). 1, 2, and 3, while certainly without a doubt flawed, didn't actually introduce any new problems to the series, and aside from the blight that is Hayden Christensen, was wholly better directed and executed than the previous movies. Also, for what it is worth, you will notice that I actually said 7 was the best movie of the bunch, not 1, 2, or 3. My problem with 7 is that it is entirely derivative of 1, 2, and 3 to the point of extreme obviousness, while still managing to be a complete departure from the SW continuity, both from the perspective of movies 1-6 alone, and when you add in the Extended Universe. They easily could have set 7 into another part of the timeline, or another part of the SW universe, got rid of the legacy characters, and it would have actually made more sense and been a better "Star Wars" movie (albeit, no longer a proper sequel, not that I'd really call it one anyway).
Is the above counter culture? About as counter culture as posting anything
on a computer enthusiast forum, and certainly less so than picking fights with people on the internet about topics you are completely clueless about.
By your asinine definition, every single user here on OCN is a computer hipster. Care to spew out any more verbal diarrhea?Edited by Zero4549 - 2/8/16 at 3:32am
