Star Wars thread.
talk about the new movie and stuff.
It ends with a dance party.
Kylo Ren is just some guy with a mullet! Darth Vader wore a mask because he had to. Kylo Ren wears a mask to hide his normal, plain, boring face.
He's just trying to emulate like Darth Vader, right? Who it turns out is the ultimate traitor to the empire. I don't get it.
Also, you know what I love about Star Wars? If it didn't work twice, just keep trying! It's bound to work eventually. Also, let's save resources by skimping on the armor and security staff for a vital failure point of our super weapon. Like we did those other two times our super weapon was destroyed.
It was alright I guess. Went in knowing next to nothing about the film itself (I only really saw that trailer with Han Solo). It was incredibly obvious that they wanted it to feel like A New Hope: Revisited. Everything tries to mirror ANH. A desert planet, a cantina scene, masked villain, death of Obi Wan/Han, raid on planet destroying weapon, etc etc. Finn was alright, Poe was criminally underused (I almost expected the movie to be about those two all the way), Rey wasn't interesting enough. I actually liked Kylo and I think his arc is going to be a highlight of this new trilogy. Also I thought they were saying that they were going 100% practical effects this time? I mean sure, most effects were practical, but when they did CGI it was really fucking jarring. Really, there was no reason to make Maz, those space monsters on Han's ship and the Jakku food guy CGI. But I really did like some of the smaller details, like the creatures that appeared when BB-8 was rolling through the desert. It really creates that "Star Wars-y" feel.
Everything supposed to be impressive and epic felt stupid and overblown in the way basically everything in modern movies supposed to be impressive and epic feels stupid and overblown. The concept of the planet superweapon drawing from the star, the way all the action scenes were shot, the lightsaber fight choreography, etc.
But I guess thats more an issue with modern movies in general than this particular one.
Does Captain Phasma take off her mask/helmet in the film? From what I heard she's just some old lady.
The Rebels carved out a slice of the galaxy and became the Republic. The remains of the Empire (or only part, who knows) rebranded as the First Order and a new rebellion starts up because the Republic doesn't want to get involved in killing another dictator.
But does she take off her helmet in the film or not? I've already seen pix of the actress and from what I remember her hair was white or gray.
ups my mistake
So I was thinking about it a bit, and I wonder now: would we think so highly of this movie if the sequels had been good? What if the bar had been set higher? Of course it wasn't.
I'd like to hear from someone who hadn't bothered with the sequels at all or someone who saw this one first. We're going to have to find someone who has been a in a coma, or prison, or marooned for a long time I think.
Do you mean episodes 1 through 3? Technicly they would be considered prequels rather than sequels. But yeah, episode 2 blew chunks.
The Republic in TFA is the NEW Republic, formed by the rebel leadership after the defeat of the Empire. The impression I get is that it largely demilitarized, although military might was needed to defeat the Empire the New Republic leaders seemed to think military intervention was no longer justified after that point. Unfortunately, this attitude allowed the First Order (a specific group formed from the Imperial remnant) to grow and become powerful. By the time of TFA the galaxy seems to have these two competing groups, the New Republic and the First Order, both of which could be considered "legitimate" governments (though they may not see each other as such).
Captain Phasma does not remove her helmet in the film, a real disappointment. Han Solo should have pulled her helmet off in classic Scooby Doo fashion while saying "Let's see who this joker really is!"
Does Captain Phasma finally remove her helmet in "The Last Jedi"?
She doesn't, but her helmet does get damaged and we get to see her eye.
Fuel is suddenly a big deal in the Star Wars universe. This series was better off without details and facts.
Speaking of instagram, it seems to me a lot of modern movie stars now very often use boosters to get more subscribers to instagram. This explains why they have so many dead accounts in subscribers. For example, I myself know one good service that provides followers. But this service provides live followers, real people. Here is the link https://socialbloom.co/pricing/ . Take note of yourself.
