    The hyperdrive thing? Not so much.
    It's a solution now because until now nobody producing these things thought "you know what would look cool? A hyperdrive kamikaze" & had the CGI resources to do it.

    The only improvement on that scene i would have wanted: Leia is the driver. Should have handed of leadership to purple hair.

    agree 100% so many missed bits that could have been amazingly epic but they went safe and it was a let down

    Speaking of things that are suddenly a thing.
      Spoiler:

    Anyone care to explain exactly how they did the "impossible" tracking through light speed that was supposedly so impossibly imposible and stuff that evryone knew it was impossible?
    And why shortgirl immediately knew how to dissable it, without having any idea what so ever how it was done?

    and suddenly Fin knew that only the one ship was doing the impossible thing and where on the ship it was done from, since he was appearently not a stormtrooper, but the janitor or something.


    Unspoilered tl/dr:

    Why hasn't the Meme-bellion been using hyperdrive ALLAHU ACKBAR the entire time?



    Oh wait lol making bux and selling toys.
    It's really really cool.

    If you want to explain it maybe it's the displacement of time-space continuum when entering hyperspace, every movie franchise has it that it's not good to jump when too close to other large mass objects. Remember what a single raptor did to the BSG, now imagine a bigass RF cruiser (stop picturing the Stabber FI pls) entering hyperspace next to another massive ship.

    Yeah, the issue is in TFA, they had the falcon jump to hyperspace while still inside another ship and survive. You could kinda explain it with the size of the cruiser, but... :P
    Just rewatched that today, indeed that was really crap as the freighter's cargohold from which the Falcon jumped was left unscathed

    Just got back from watching this.

    Had its good moments, but I feel they were outweighed by the bad. Pretty much what everyone else's spoilers here have already said. Am somewhat disappoint.

    Now that I have had more time to digest the movie, it is dropping on my list.
    So much wasted potential with characters. You which two I mean.

    Thoughts:-

      Spoiler:

    - Disliked the amount of animals that just knew how to help. They're animals ffs, why are they all super intelligent trying to help the rebels.
    - Casino scenes started off ok, then just went slapstick and silly.
    - Leia force pulling herself from space was just bad, just have the explosion throw her into the corridor and stick her in a coma there while the bridge gets sealed off if you really want her not to die.
    - Purple woman should've replace leia
    - Yoda shouldn't be in the film, would've enjoyed the scene more if Luke went to burn the tree, decided not to (like he did), then just get all angry and unleash lightning while being angry showing he's powerful as fuck but is losing control of his emotions.
    - kamikaze was sick
    - constant jokes was bad
    - Kylo finally starting to assert himself more is good, I also enjoyed how snoke died. Been waiting for a force user to do something like that for ages (place saber close, turn it on, gg)
    - Kylo struggling with the royal guard, like wtf? He should be able to murder all of them no problem.
    - Rey struggling with the royal guard, makes sense as she's still learning to control herself/abilities
    - Kylo being a badass in a tiefighter was good, not shooting Leia was good, watching her get blown the fuck up by his troops was good.
    - Finn being serious finally and trying to suicide was good.
    - Kylo talking with Rey and giving her doubt was good
    - Not closing the blast doors until the imperial army was literally outside was just retarded. First thing I'd have done when landing would be "yeh let's close these fucking doors m8s"

    There's probs more I can think of, but these were my main takes from it.

    Enjoyed the film overall, but I'd cut out a lot of the stupid scenes and make Finn an actual serious character. He should be constantly struggling with his emotions after years of brainwashing. I want to see Kylo being as badass as when we first see him in 7 where he steps off the ship and stops the bolt, that scene was sick and should've set him up for the rest of it.

    Yea what happened to that guy? He was seriously badass in the beginning.
      Spoiler:
    And where are the knights of ren? At least we got a hint at their backstory. But not a trace of them otherwise.

    purple haired lady tho. ew. she just made me cringe both with the acting and with the character. "Oh look at the cute clucking old ladies running hte rebellion 'cause old and wise and shit." Couldn't even deliver the "may the force be with you" without making it seem ironic rather than honest.

    TBH I just think she'd be better than Leia, and fitting with the "out with the old, in with the new" thing that's going on where all the old characters are being replaced. That and Carrie is dead IRL so leaves me wondering how they're going to remove her from the next film...

    Although maybe they killed off purple woman to make room for the younger generation to legitimately take the lead of the rebellion.

    Well now that "flyboi" has learned to run away instead of commit to a plan, he's appearently leader material so there's that.
    And that line from Leia at the end. "Why are you looking at me? Follow him!"

    better than leia? she got jumped by her own troops after causing a mutiny due to not informing her CAG of what she was doing. Then after he took the bridge she had to go wake Leia up to fix her shit. The character never came across as a vice admiral more like one of Leia's college dorm mates who needed a job.

    Meh, just seemed to me that she's overly zealous with chain of command and doesn't trust the local flyboy after watching him blow up half the fighters in the fleet after he was told to pull out. Wasn't really given too much time to develop to be able to tell either way though tbh

    I'm expecting the big reveal of the third movie will involve "oh look Ben and Rey were the Solo twins all along!" since they were pretty in your face about it, even put the two scenes of Ben/Rey and Luke/Leia back to back.

    Because it's got the Empire vibes flowing through it at all times. The First Order/Empire being actually overpowering, Kylo Ren/Vader bringing it home (in some sort of Dark Side way about it), Resistance/Rebels in disarray apparently but their getting away being a huge victory in itself, fatherly figure Luke/Yoda being sent to the backdrop, Rey|Finn/Luke coming of age so to speak and accepting what they have to do (albeit they're still clumsy), etc

    I think it's bringing back Empire vibes in terms of failure, managing it and accepting it. Tbh last few days I've been devouring lore (canon and non canon) and as long as you're looking at episodes VII - VIII without any expectations of deep lore being respected they're not bad at all. Idk. I liked it a lot overall.

    Empire had the advantage of there only being one film (& a Christmas special *cough*) in the franchise, so they could pretty much do whatever they wanted/needed to plotwise etc & it not contradict anything or seem out of place. For example, I'm pretty sure Force ghosts only exist because Obi-wan hadn't told Luke about Yoda in A New Hope, so they figured having him appear as a blue hologram was as good a way as any to tell him where to go. Hell Han & Leia's relationship, so important now, only existed because otherwise there was nothing for them to do, since they're not all that important in the grand scheme of events (in the first three films, anyway). There's a lot about Empire that's clearly them trying to figure out how to make a sequel to a standalone film without just doing it again but bigger &/or in a different location. Which Return of the Jedi ended up being anyway, only with Luke vs Vader to make it seem like it wasn't a bloated rehash. Much like Ray vs Kyle now.

    Came out not hating it.

    However I also didn't come out with the feeling that I wanted to see it again in a hurry.

    Good bits interspersed with much stuff that made me go or

    I enjoyed Rogue One much much more - but mainly due to the last 25 minutes of that film.

    Probably because I'm dead inside and need things to physically yank on my heartstrings to get any sort of emotional response.

    Also that film was made for my generation more I feel.. and this one is for the kids of today. So no worries.

    What? You're implying the belching drunken slimy space-minion in the casino isn't aimed at the fans of the original trilogy?
