Sterling Archer - I am going to plead the 5th on this as I have "controversial" feelings on this and in the entertainment industry but I can honestly say if it wasn't for modders and hackers there would be alot of tech that we miss out on when companies make ideas better. But it's
(click to show/hide)
about the money.

I'll completely agree that the music and movie industry are pretty damn corrupt and topheavy, but pirating films doesn't give anybody ANYTHING, and I generally prefer to see artists get paid for their work.

It's a catch-22. Either we decide to stop feeding a corrupt system and artists feel it first, or we pay up and the artists feel it last.

Either way, the term is called "starving artist" for a reason (though no one would say Harrison Ford is exactly STARVING).
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

Like one 57 times the size of Daisy Ridley and John Boyega's paychecks.

I saw it on Saturday and really loved it.  Definitely not a perfect movie, but it's far better than the prequel trilogy.  I thought it relied a bit too heavily on fanservice and could have been a lot more original.

But those aren't huge gripes.  I think J.J. Abrams wanted to play it safe and include all the fanservice to prove that he could make a genuine Star Wars movie, and prove it he did.  It was a really fun movie to watch, and I can't wait to see it again.

And it seemed weird that Rey could learn to use the Force so quickly, with no training.[/spoiler]

Everyone keeps mentioning that. I believe that in that moment she wasn't really using it, I believe the Force manifested itself and actually was helping her wield that lightsaber. I would even go so far to say that Luke may have had some influence over it too, considering we don't know how powerful he has really become.

Make no mistake I am not condoning pirating films, but if you say anything other than the contrary people tend to get their panties in a wad. I think I kinda touched on my feelings in my statement.

was just thinking about some things,

the Kylo/Rey duel. keep in mind that he's also inexperienced too. Not so much as Rey but Kylo hasn't been exactly dueling with any other Jedi prior, because there ARE no other Jedi, or at least, no other Jedi with lightsabers. You can argue he was out of practice so to speak. So he was caught off guard with Rey who is obviously a natural prodigy Jedi*, whereas he dominated Finn (also Rey was pretty much fleeing the entire fight, it wasn't until she was "backed in a corner" when she struck back at him heavy). Dude was also heavily injured after taking a direct hit from Chewie's bowcaster rifle. Remember, upon hearing of what happened at Starkiller Base, Snoke told Hux to retrieve Kylo so he can "complete his training." hopefully this explanation can smooth things out a bit lol. he is still in conflict with the light and dark sides within himself, he's still not 100% evil despite wanting to be.

*perhaps even Luke's daughter or granddaughter, which explains why she is so powerful.

Lupita Nyongo's character I forget her name, is obviously the new "Yoda" and I can't wait till they reveal how in the hell Anakin's old lightsaber is still intact, to which she said "a question for another time." They knew all of us would have questions so they gotta keep us guessing which is great. Snoke is the most mysterious character thus far, a lot of criticisms about him but I thought it would be cool & unique to have a friggin gigantic intelligent alien character in Star Wars, so I was somewhat disappointed to see that instead of being this menacing 25ft tall practitioner of the darkside, it was just a hologram LOL. oh well. I don't think he's Darth Plagueis but we shall see

Cap'n Phasma is being set up to be the new improved "Boba Fett" and she will have her time to shine, mark my words. Kinda like how Boba was originally in A New Hope but was cut; he didn't do squat in that scene, he was just there to look cool & mysterious. Same with Phasma's role in this movie. Although that 1 Storm Trooper that was kicking Finn's ass, THAT should've been Phasma instead. o well

Also loved how they aren't completely ignoring the prequels; little nods to those events are in this film such as them considering using clones and the new Yoda mentioning the Sith by name. Despite peoples valid opinions on those films it's still ALL canon, as it should be and this movie acknowledges this


was one of the planets Starkiller Base blew up Coruscant? It kinda looked like it was but not 100% sure. If so then that's kinda a big deal since Coruscant was pretty much the "capital" planet of the Star Wars galaxy. General Hux did say they would eliminate the remaining of the Republic, so it would make sense for them to destroy Naboo, etc. since that was what those planets stood for in the prequels



why did Kylo Ren, Phasma, etc. care so much that Finn betrayed them? He was just 1 random soldier in an army of thousands, they shoulda been like "oh well no big loss jokes on you fam cuz we are legion" but instead Kylo was PISSED lol

Apparently during Rey's flashback scene of past events of the SW saga, you can hear Obi Wan as voiced by Ewan McGregor saying "Rey, these are your first steps..." among other voices such as Luke screaming from ESB. perhaps it was Obi that told her to use Jedi Mind Trick in that 1 scene with James Bondthat Storm Trooper

No shawarma scene.

I really doubt that either Coruscant or Naboo was destroyed by the Starkiller.  It would be a real lost opportunity to relegate them to a 5-second "death scene" without even naming them.

Think of the positives if Naboo was destroyed though: Jar Jar, and the entire species that spawned him, has finally been eliminated.








We're safe! PRAISE SNOKE!

APPLAUSE! Provided that none of them traveled to another planet.

Just saw it.

Best Star Wars movie ever.

I loved the originals when I was a kid. But I tried watching through them again and they are just so damn cheesy I can't do it.

I know it's not an age thing too cuz I can watch any classic episode of Star Trek and love it.

The Star Wars prequels are hardly worth mentioning.

But I love the games and the universe so much. I'm thrilled to finally have a good all around Star Wars movie to enjoy. The new characters are awesome too! My daughters cousin told him that girls can't be Jedi. Just wait until the little turd watches this!

So glad I gave my girl her own light saber for Christmas!

Yeah, I am definitely probably getting the special edition of the movie when it comes out.
