RE: Star Wars does not need lead "strong" females characters
I'm kinda wondering if that isn't a fight, but some kind of training scene. She's facing the TIE when it's far off, then turns her back to it as it gets close and looks over her should preparing for her jump. Just a thought.

RE: Star Wars does not need lead "strong" females characters
Wait until the three film adaptation of Dune in 2020 comes along with Denis Villeneuve directing. I've a feeling its going to make the sequel trilogy look like the empty films they are to general audiences. Oscar Issac is in it too.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1160419/?ref_=tttr_tr_tt

Quote:Denis Villeneuve's plans for Dune (2020) are quite ambitious, as he hopes to make it the Star Wars he never saw. In an interview, he explained that most of the main ideas of Star Wars came from Dune so it will be a challenge to tackle this project. Villeneuve even said, "In a way, it's Star Wars for adults."

It has the feeling of a dream sequence. That shot of the wreckage of the Death Star lying off in the ocean was an idea they had for Episode VII, where Luke and Rey would swim down into the submerged chamber see the Emperors seat and recover some material for weapon of sorts, it was in the concept art, would have been great two films ago.

It's all beginning to feel like a season 20 bazillion of the Simpsons or some insane Dragonball like anime now.

Genuinely laughed at "we've passed on all we know".

Uhhh, when?

She can't even take the lightsaber off her belt without girly fumblefingers. You'd think it would be a no-brainer to just CGI her using the force to draw it to her hand.

Given how bad The Last Jedi was, complaining about a previously very well-written and well-acted character returning is the least of our worries.

So long as Rey doesn’t slice him in half along with the fat Asian chick to score a win for galactic feminism, the Palpatine angle could keep the movie moderately afloat.

I still cannot fucking believe that Admiral Purple Hair was allowed by the writers to destroy that mega-ship by kamikazing into it via a hyperspace jump. Single dumbest plot device in cinematic history.

RE: Star Wars does not need lead "strong" females characters
I don't think that the kamikaze thing was as bad as everybody thinks it is. Or that 'nuking the fridge' was the moment where Indiana Jones fell apart. If I wanted to, I could imagine some technobabble to justify that only an expensive capital ship could kamikaze, ergo it's almost never done. I think we just focus on these, because the movie in general sucked. It was a great scene, that was emotionally and plot-wise disconnected from the rest of the film.

Keep in mind that Empire had an enormous plot hole right in the middle. We have the impression that Luke spends at least a couple of months on Dagobah. But unless there's some sort of time-distorting effect of space travel, events on Cloud City show that he was only there for a couple of days at most.

Luke Skywalker - the greatest Jedi of all time - spent a total of 2 hours training under Obi Wan on the Millenium Falcon, and 2 days training under Yoda.

We ignore this because the rest of the film is so good.

About the prequels - really guys? I'm still annoyed by those films.

Darth Bobo the Clown looks stupid.

A double-ended light saber makes no sense, and the choreographer had to cheat heavily to make anything happen in those scenes. For anybody who's done staff fighting, the burning blades restrict Darth Bobo from doing 3/4 of the manouevers that make a staff advantageous.

Mitochlorians? Really? That's the stupidest thing I ever heard.

Force Baby? Like... *gasp* JESUS???? Stupid.

Pod racing? Stupid. I don't care about stupid Nascar Alien Sportsball. I think I fell asleep during that scene.

And that's not even getting started on all the massive plot holes. That's just the basic premise.

I have to disagree strongly.

It’s ridiculous because any droid (or navigational computer) could be used to ram the Death Star or other Imperial/First Order ships/fleets and obliterate them.

You would not need military vessels - use cheaper passenger ships or cargo fleets that have no need for expensive weaponry and other systems.

The Rebels could have easily kept a large vessel on Hoth and then rammed it into Vader’s flagship and destroyed any accompanying Star Destroyers as well.

I do not think your Empire analogy works because Yoda told Luke to stay and we know his temper was a huge issue, exemplified by the failed X-Wing raising scene.

RE: Star Wars does not need lead "strong" females characters
Watched the trailer yesterday. Dull as a moldy old sandwich. There wasn't the slightest thing to get me excited. It's just going to be more rehashing old characters like TFA, and boring un-conflicts revolving around irrelevant people I don't care about.

Don't even get me started on every cuck at the SW Fan Celebration creaming their pants over Kelly Marie Tran showing up and virtue signaling bullshit on Twitter like:

"I would fistfight everyone on earth for Kelly Marie Tran,"
"If it didn't disrupt her life, I would say that she should get this kind of reception everywhere she goes"
"The only thing I remember about The Last Jedi is Kelly Marie Tran"

Luke Skywalker - the greatest Jedi of all time - spent a total of 2 hours training under Obi Wan on the Millenium Falcon, and 2 days training under Yoda.

Not to nitpick but:
A. It's never expressly said how long it took the Falcon to get to Cloud City. It could have been months.

B. Luke was self-training on Hoth for several years.

After all of that, he was barely able to pull his saber out of some snow and Vader clowned him when he decided to really fight. On Dagobah, during intense concentration, he was able to lift a few rocks and R2 but failed to lift his ship. Even on the second Death Star, Luke was only able to pull his saber and do a few jumps.

Rey was able to lift half a mountain after fewer than 2 weeks of Luke not training her. She was able to beat Kylo, Luke and Snoke's guard in duels. She was able to spontaneously learn force powers she'd never even heard of - that was after hearing about the Force only a day ago.

CaptainStabbin, you're proving my point. You're going out of your way to justify something that the movie doesn't properly spell out; whereareas with The Last Jedi we're going out of our way to explain all the problems with that scene.

It's not the scene that ruined the movie - it's the movie that ruined the scene.

The big question is whether they'll save the reveal for before or after the
sex scene with Kylo.

The pathetic thing is that even a mediocre writer could have used the whole "hyperspace death rocket has never been done before" thing to their advantage.

Instead of sending the dynamic duo to find some kind of super dooper master hacker to defeat the empire ship's shields why not send them to find a super dooper master hacker that could manipulate the hyperdrive computer that has always had here-to-fore unhackable anti-collision software.

Captain purple-bitch sells the ruse as "hacking the computer to go randomly hyperspace without suitable fuel levels as a last ditch escape".

Not genius, but about a thousand times less stupid and nonsensical than the plot as it was delivered.

Everybody needs to watch this video. Realize that this is the calibre of numale wandering around out there. Any time we talk about restoring the West, or winning the demographic battle, or simply try and plan a route for a future that keeps us and our loved ones safe - take into account that creeps like this guy are slithering around everywhere, with a spoon in one hand and a big jar of soy in the other. This is an extremely important data point.

Also: parodied several years back.

RE: Star Wars does not need lead "strong" females characters
The new trailer was shit.

I could go on and on and on, but most saliently;

1. Of all the fucking impossibly varied, limitless and beautiful planets you could create from the computing power they have these days, they go and give us another fucking desert planet. Tatooine or Jakku? Who gives a fuck, they are identical and we've already seen them. Simeon did a great exploration a while back of how boring this lack of imagination/ambition is becoming.

2. Similarly, why can't Rey change her clothes? In the original trilogy, I had about a dozen differently dressed SW figures for each character; Desert Luke, Hoth Luke, Pilot Luke, Jedi Luke. Boring, boring, boring. Darth-Soy is the same; has a mask, gets rid of mask, gets mask back .... sigh!

3. Death Star Laser-dish is a nice visual lying on the Planet. But as mentioned above, it belonged a few films back. Everyone's tired of Death Stars now.

4. Palpatine? We love him. So LEAVE HIM THE FUCK ALONE! Don't bring him back. You've all proved you don't have the wit or talent to do him justice.

You cannot give the male gaze an attractive Paige Tico - you gotta give them comrade Tico, the enforcer of the voluntary rebels - she will make sure, that your voluntary contribution is rewarded with a cattle prod in case you want to leave the rebellion.

Oh - and the Emperor is indeed back with the actor of the prequels reprising his role.





This is confirmed by KKK. Guess they can kill off and destroy 2 characters in the next one - Palpatine and Lando.

What bullshit indeed. They rather attempted to bring back Darth Maul than give us an Obi-Wan movie, because he is such a charming but also disgusting White Male and we cannot have those in the SJW universe.
