    The question is: will you skip TLJ? Then no, I wouldn't skip it.
    If the question was: will you skip TLJ and ROS? Then yes, I would skip them both.
    I liked TFA but the other two movies no, I didn't like them much.

    I do the same thing, but what I'm meaning by saying the above was that if a person doesn't want to bother with the overt visual language of a story - doesn't want to concern with taking in visual information and discerning the meaning of the visual information, then watching a film is not a good idea.
    That's kind of the majority of what's going on in a film. ESPECIALLY Star Wars, and even MORE SO when it's Lucas at the helm because if he had it his way, visual language and communication through visual media would be in public schools as a basic communications course like English is.

    Cheers,
    Jayson

    That would actually be an interesting course. I know in many of his films, Kurbrick used visual cues in the forms of props and set design for foreshadowing and imply meaning. For example in Full Metal Jacket there is one scene with a building framed in the shot and it is a visual reference to the apes around the monolith in 2001 A Space Odyssey.

    The whimsical orchestral soundtrack juxtaposed with scenes I probably would do better not to describe here created a feeling of dissonance and unease in Cannibal Holocaust.

    Even the trailer for Psycho is full of visual and auditory symbolism.


    For me, I am autistic and sometimes struggle with understanding and responding to certain aspects of verbal and non-verbal communication and so I find it helpful to be written or described for me rather than it being left to my own interpretation which may or may not be wrong.

    Nobody complaining about a two and a half year old movie gets to make complaints that include the criticisms like "boring", "derivative", "slow", or "pointless" anymore without fully acknowledging the irony of the situation.

    12 - CRITICISM" vs. "BASHING"


    This is a STAR WARS website by the fans for the fans. It is presumed you are a Star Wars fan, and that like all Star Wars fans you have aspects of the series that you really like, and other aspects of it that you might not like. While thoughtful criticism is part of healthy discourse, there is a fine line between criticism and outright bashing. When criticism becomes inflammatory, insulting and disrespectful to other fans, it impinges upon their right to discuss and express their enjoyment of everything Star Wars. This is, of course, unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

    We don't need to beat a dead horse, everyone should know better by now. This conversation goes any further with the bashing, don't be surprised to see a message waiting in your inbox.
