  1. Yeah I took major exception to that line. It was a cover-all-bases clean up that tried to make the Palpatine storyline make more sense. Lazy AF
  2. Yeah I think this is what bothers me the most. Yoda went into seclusion after failing to defeat the Emperor and him taking over the entire galaxy. Luke went into hiding because his nephew and him had a bedside misunderstanding one time.
  3. I wouldnt say I am defending them. I am referencing proven great movies against the new Star Wars. There has to be a frame of reference if we are saying tRoS is so bad. The point was that it IS possible to make a high-budget film and a satisfying story. But I dont agree with your assessment that they all feel bloated and just a collection of good scenes. Ill never forget how I felt the first time I watched GotG, that was a baller flick with an amazing cast/script/story/direction/CGI.
  4. All of those movies are around 90%. It’s not really a matter of opinion, they are great.
  5. It is possible to make money in a Big Budget Film and still make a meaningful well thought out story that satisfies fans. Thor Ragnorok accomplished that, as did Days of Future Past, Guardians ot Galaxy 1, Black Panther, Wonder Woman. I will never understand how or why they fucked Star wars up so bad in the ST. They literally had a universe of possibilities for stories and all the money they would ever need.
  6. Lol yeah, Rogue One is the best!!! Certainly got more emotion out of me than any of the others.
  7. Respectable list! mine is A New Hope Rogue One Empire Strikes Back Return of the Jedi The Mandalorian The Force Awakens Solo The Last Jedi Revenge of the Sith Rise of Skywalker The Phantom Menace Christmas Special Attack of the Clones
  8. You are very fortunate that you don’t remember 3PO in Episode II when him and Padme and Anakin are all trying to escape the giant assembly line and then 3PO gets his head attached to a different droids body. That sequence is just as bad and stupid as Jar-Jar’s entire character and it makes me mad just thinking about it.
  9. I just thought 3PO’s humor was forced. Also I dont need a punchline from him every other line for 15 straight minutes. To me he wasn’t funny because nothing he says is serious, every word out of his mouth should have been followed by [drum drum symbol]. Like we got some serious shit going down, we’re about to erase your memory and none of the other characters cares and 3PO is like ‘This is such a drag’ or whatever other dumbass one-liners. And they spent so much time making a big deal out of getting his memory erased because ‘R2’s back-up files can be faulty so we may not be able to restore you.....???’ wtf was that about? R2 can do anything, he’s a droid who is Force sensitive and has been kicking ass all over the Universe for decades, but he may not be able to back-up 3PO?? Then they get to R2 and he restores 3PO in 2 seconds, to me it was just dumb. 3PO is funny in the Cloud City when he loses his body and Chewie has to carry him around and put him back together, but tRoS did not even come close to that. D-O is completely different, he’s a great little new Droid that is a welcome addition who has a story and a purpose and an arc.
  10. Me and my husband and father all felt exactly this way as well. It was interesting visually and it’s a Star Wars movie. But it fucking sucked and I do not recommend it except that it’s fucking Episode IX so you gotta watch it. why do people on this thread keep saying C3PO’s humor/jokes were funny? He was not funny. He wasn’t funny in Episode II and he wasn’t funny in Episode IX. Can we please stop saying he was funny?!?
  11. My husband and I both called out “Charlie!!” When we saw him. Abrams wanted to make LOST Star Wars and he did, oscillator and all. (LOST only worked once and it’s not ever gonna happen again, directors- even Abrams- should stop trying to make LOST happen again). To the posts talking about Universe-killing additions. I agree but they have all done it now. When MCU brought Gamora back by snatching her out of an alternate timeline it’s the same thing. They make it so that nothing is ever PERMANENT. Which also ensures that they can react to any feedback however they want at any time. Anyone can be brought back, even f’ing Wolverine is back alive in the comics after ‘The Death of Wolverine’ series and ‘Logan’. Which REALLY took a toll on me, but then he’s just back alive like 2 years later so it meant nothing. just ‘be sure to drink your ovaltine’ and know that it’s all about money, content doesnt matter, only money.
  12. Downton Abbey The Movie is soooooo much better than The Rise of Skywalker That’s how I feel. also Merry Christmas
  13. It’s 2 to the power of 867893248 and then those odds just keep doubling with every event that occurs
  14. “I have the high ground Anakin.” is my least favorite line in all of entertainment. But tRoS has me so mad right now I can’t think straight.
  15. The new characters (Poe, Finn, BB8, Rey) all won me over in TFA, a movie which I very much loved. And Kylo I liked by the end of TLJ. This 3rd movie was just not good for many reasons. The prequels were and remain bad, however to the point being made in the thread— suddenly after TROS I hate the prequels a little less for some reason, maybe they have just grown familiar after 18 years. Sort of like Trump and W. Bush. I thought Bush was the worst ever possible and I was wrong. After PT I would think Disney would have done everything they could to make sure Episode IX finished strong, but the script lacked, the plot lacked, the leaps of reasoning made it worse... and the part that makes it so bad is that VII, VIII and IX were basically just a way to kill our 3 heroes from the 80’s who would have otherwise lived eternally in our imaginations. I didnt need to see Luke and Han die, I really didnt........ Maybe someone here knows the answer to this. When Palpatine was a senator from Naboo, was he married with 2 kids a dog? I would assume it is normal for members of the Galactic Senate to campaign and give the impression of a decent human who has a family and procreates right? I doubt Palpatine ran on a platform of an unmarried-total Sith domination of the galaxy...
  16. Also, based on the conversations between Anakin and Palpatine in Episode III, and the way Palpatine doesnt seem to care that Anakin has a wife and a baby.... I guess it makes sense that Palpatine at some point in his life could have had a wife or girlfriend and fathered some children/child. That’s the fun of the Dark Side right? You can do anything you want without any rules like what the Jedi Order have. Plus isn’t Palpatine the original guy who tried to learn how to bring back people from Death? Why would he be interested in learning that power unless he was like Anakin and wanted to bring back someone he loved? maybe losing someone he loved explains why he so obsessed with killing everyones ‘friends’. He showed the same disdain for ‘friends’ in XI that he does in VI.
  17. My theory of baby Yoda is that there’s only 1 Yoda at a time, the baby just materializes whenever Yoda is nearing the end of his life, kind of like a phoenix. I guess through midicloriens or however Anakin was born except there is no ‘mother’ yoda.
  18. This was my least favorite Star Wars in a while. The plot was weird and it was too long. There was no death star/starkiller to really be afraid of the whole time. I dont like how all the Skywalkers are dead but it is called ‘Rise of Skywalker’. Finn has too many girlfriends and we never heard what he wanted to tell Rey. Why did Ben have to die? His death made no sense. I had several other issues with the script as well, 3PO was seriously un-funny just like Episode II, which bothered me. And why did they make such a big deal abt having his memory erased when R2 just completely fixed him like 4 minutes later? why is Palpatine’s son so ‘weak’? What is the back story there? can everyone use the Force now or is it selective like when you are a muggle born with Magic in Harry Potter? Poe was not a great general.....
  19. Agreed, if you think The Mandolorian was cheesy and stupid then you don't like Star Wars.
  20. I will watch the episode again tonight with the closed captions on. I find that doing that reveals so many things I would have never picked up on.
  21. And then I was reading somewhere that the baby is already 50 years old? So there must be a planet or Yoda creatures somewhere..... Also if the baby was on a bounty hunter kill list then I think @Rhom you must be right that someone is afraid it will pick up the force quickly. I guess my take is that....if the babies are babies for 50 years and this one is so hunted, whatever the yoda species is must reproduce very very rarely.
  22. ok so who can explain Baby Yoda and what is the time frame of The mandalorian? does it take place 800 years before Episode 4? Is that Yoda as a baby, or just a baby same species as Yoda or did Yoda have a baby?
