  1. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Well, just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it's bad. You're not supposed to like Darth Vader. He was a flawed human being, otherwise he wouldn't have turned to the dark side and stayed there for most of his life.
  2. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    No. That's not it. There are plenty of contradictory things in the PT, but nothing is too jarring to not enjoy those movies for what the are. Unlike the ST. And really to throw out the EU, to come up with the crap they came up with instead adds further insult to injury and makes it even harder to overlook things. And I know exactly (and care about) what Star Wars is (it's the people who don't care and don't have a clue, who celebrate these new movies). It's what's been introduced 40 years ago. That is the framework. Those are the rules. Any further story should be based in the framework and follow those rules. And not bend, extend and shit on those rules however they see fit.
  3. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Why the hell is it an incest plot hole? The characters obviously didn't know they were related. And them feeling an attraction to each other is natural. So there was some slight sexual tension. It's what you expect in a plot revolving around young, good looking people. I don't really see how that is a problem. It's less of a problem than Kylo getting the hots for Rey and abandoning his life path for her and her having feelings for him, after she watched him killing his unarmed father, which really doesn't make too much sense.
  4. Europe 2020 Tour Announced

    Ah, you'd be surprised. Every band has die hards.
  5. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Note: What pieces? And for argument sake, if there are pieces, who says that it has to enter an atmosphere, instead of floating in space until all eternity. But maybe the emperor force pulled it into an atmosphere.
  6. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Right. And after being blown to bits and falling (shouldn't whatever is left just float) and then finally falling, after it miraculously managed to float to a planet, it pretty much stayed in one piece, after it crashed to the ground.
  7. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Yes. I complain about that. Suspenscion of disbelief only goes so far. Superman can fly and has superstrength, but if they would tell me that Batman suddenly can fly too and also has superstrength, then I would say, get the fuck out of here.
  8. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Yeah. Like I said. The whole movie is dumb as fuck. You can only enjoy it if you hand in your brain at the door when entering. I'm sure though someone will say that the emperor has survived in that piece of DS that miracoulisly wasn't destroyed and made it on that planet.
  9. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    There. Corrected it for you.
  10. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    That brings us to the question of how that blown up wreckage of the death star can end up on a planet pretty much intact? When planes fall out of the sky, there usually is not much left. How would a death star from out of space be intact?
  11. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Oh, well. He was a late bloomer as an emperor. Somehow he had to pass the time, before his face melted off. It probably would have made more sense (LOL) to make her his great grand daughter.
  12. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    A) the relic is prothetic and b) she's Mary Sue. She can do anything. Even stand at the right spot, where the ancient, prothetic relic makes sense.
  13. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    The whole Review is funny. Also that movie poster is really cool. Too bad the movie is a piece of shit.
  14. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Thry wasted the whole trilogy. Instead of a lame retread they could have brought something really new. But still respect what Jedi are and what they can and can't do.
  15. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    I never said the were perfect, but they are in many ways closer to perfect and great films than this new trilogy ever could be.
  16. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    At least Luke didn't force project fight himself into Jabba's lair. Would have made things much easier though to rescue him. 2 bad writers didn't pull that out of their ass then. I wouldn't really say that getting a main character back is a side plot. But guess what, they had one of those in Rise too.
  17. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    That. And really offered nothing. Except old heroes dying without having one scene together. To me the continuation of the saga will always be the now discarded EU. Fuck the new/remake trilogy. As a whole, it was a total fail.
  18. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Show me where I said that they decided after the fact that Luke was gonna die??? I said it makes no sense for him to die like that, for no apparent reason. If that force projection fight, as you make it up, killed him, then Rey and Ren should be dead too. Rey is not even suffienctly trained in the force. And spare me the crap of her being Palpatine's offspring. Another bs contrievance. And really, if they want to kill him anyway, I'd preferred if they would have just gotten his ass over there and let him die in a real fight. I want them to tell an exciting, coherent and interesting story, within the parameters set forth of what Jedi are (hundreds of books, comics and computergames were able to do that). Not the crap they invented and added to gloss over the fact that they don't really have a story.
  19. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    No. What you're saying makes no sense and is not what I was saying. I'm saying we know since over 30 years what Jedi are and what they can do. Force projection, force projections fights across galaxies, force ghosts that fight, like they are physically present, force telephone video calls across galaxies, force healing mortal wounds of others, force raising the dead is not in their skillset. Never was. Until some writers thought, "What the hell? Let's make them do that.". And yes, to say "Gotcha. Palpatine was never dead and spent the last 30 years in hiding, with some metal arm up his ass." is lazy writing and really undoes and cheapens the original trilogy. Nevermind the missing explanation of what went on in those 30 years and why really nothing has changed, except the name of the empire. And for that the ruined and discarded the EU. That's lazy and poor as fuck. And you act like the writers, making up and inventing shit, to make sense of the shit they put on screen. People go crazy that Lucas dared to mention midichlorians, but that shit Disney did is acceptable?
  20. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Exactly. And really, they give a shit what a Jedi, as established in 6 movies, tv series, countless books, comics and computer games that where released in 30 years really is. They give a shit about the rules this galaxy far far away has when it comes to what Jedi are and what they can and can not do and come up with shit as they please. And people overlook that and claim it's "real" Star Wars, when in fact it's bollocks. Yeah. Just as the writers, making up shit as you go along to justify the crap they threw on the screen. That's not how Star Wars (or any story) works. Rey hadn't used the force before either and there was no Snoke in Rise.
  21. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Right. Then why didn't Ren and Rey drop dead when they did the same thing?
  22. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    And for the life of me I can't figure out why one would say that (Star Wars) movie was okay or right (and especially from people who pan the prequel trilogy). Because really, nothing was "right".
  23. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Yeah. And also that he's a little lap dog always chasing after Rey, trying to save her... as if Superwoman needs saving. I mean, she can do anything. And if she really is in trouble, she has an almost Sith Lord bringing her back to live.
  24. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Ah. That's the Explanation. Right? Duh. I know that Fisher died, but just because Fisher died they didn't need to make her drop dead in the movie too. Especially considering Luke dropped dead in the movie before. They really should have let her float to her death in 8. Oh, it's clear? And what would that explanation be?
  25. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    I found that reaction totally over the top, especially as she died for no apparent reason. Just like Luke. No one knows why they died. Jedi Masters who just drop dead for no reason.
