Why doesn't vader just appear to Kylo Ren as a force ghost and tell him he turned to the lightside at the end?
That's a huge plot hole. I'm not even sure why Kylo Ren wanted to be like Vader in the first place. I'm sure, Luke, Han and Leia all would have told him how tragic of a character he was and how he turned good at the end.
So, is Zoe Saldana basically the new Sigourney Weaver?
> convincing in action roles
> in many major sci-fi franchises, including Star Trek, Avatar, and GOTG
I can't think of any actresses more prevalent in sci-fi right now.
Both were in Avatar so it was like a passing of the torch.
Are you fucking blind? Have you not seen Alien?
Can someone pls explain to me how this shit was supposed to work?
Did it completely drain any star it came across?
Did it move from system to system or was it stationary? ......wtf??
I'm more interested into how the fuck the First Order did manage to build it without anyone knowing.
The two Death Stars were HUGE projects, even for the Empire at its peak and now a bunch of SS-looking motherfuckers can build a planet-sized system-wrecker without the Republic taking notice and fucking their shit?
It's the equivalent of North Korea building a nuke.
Or Nazi Germany managing the V2 rockets toward the end of WW2.
In any case, why bother thinking about it? You can be sure no-one involved in the production of the movie did.
I'm guessing building a massive thing like that into your own home planet is easier to get away with than building a whole new station out in the middle of nowhere...?
That's just an attempt at a possible justification, i still think the whole thing is hella dumb.
Hands down, best TV show of all time. Prove me wrong.
Protip: You can't.
Would the Star Wars Prequels be seen less harshly if Lucas is not continously fucking up the Original Trilogy?
RLM and Alexandre Philippe did say that the changes in the Special Edition actually add level to the criticisms of the Prequels because George tries so hard to shoehorn in Prequel elements to the point where he sacrificed the values of the characters and the story.
Adding Hayden Christensen being the force ghost in EPVI and putting various CGI elements based on Prequel CGI (Like Jedi Rocks) into the Original Trilogy pretty much strengthens many criticisms...

Also, Prequel fans should support the argument that the Special Edition changes are blocking people from seeing the Prequels more favorably.
If Prequel fans want more people to enjoy The Prequels, then they should support the OT fans in wanting the Original Trilogy released unofficially in its unaltered form.
I don't know how much, but I'd pay a whole lot for a 4K/HD/whatever remaster of the theatrical versions of the Original Trilogy with things like black and white R2 fixed and other visual stuff. No Boba Fett walking onto the set and staring at the camera. No "waka chuka bah wah Vu wot loo waaaaahhhhh yah" in Jabba's palace. Just visual update. The only substantive change that might be okay is putting Palpatine is as the Emperor in Episode 5 instead of weird chimp woman. But even then it's...

Letterboxd thread: Merry Christmas edition
Why don't you spend your day shitposting in this thread and talking about movies instead of spending valuable time with loved ones
Follow the Papa And Merry Christmas ^_^
wow Santa is so thoughtful and kind... It is the exact one I wanted and sent the eBay link to a family member in order to express this
Can we talk about how this is the best film of 2015?
alright, me first
Disney pays 4 billion dollars to buy the rights to the most well-known science fiction series in the world. They announce the EU is no longer canon. They now have Carte Blanche to write the future of Star Wars as they see fit, to do the series and the fans justice.
Money is no object. The finest writers, storyboard artists, consultants, etc... are available to bring any bold vision by JJ Abrams into fruition. What do we get?
>Kylo Ren is a Vader clone. Literally the least imagination required in a new villain.
>The Death Star 3.0: This time it's bigger!!!!
>This death star still has a weak spot that is actually bigger than the first two and is even easier to destroy.
>Entire Death Planet's shields can be brought down by a single stormtrooper captain from a single terminal in the trash building
>Captain Phasma, much hyped and anticipated, does nothing on screen and is a worthless character
>Han Solo, galactically recognized smuggler/hero, is still smuggling shit for a living in his old age.
>R2D2 is in, i wish i was kidding, a robot coma until he magically wakes up with the deus ex machina to luke's hideout
>C3PO awkwardly shoehorned in so that actor's feelings aren't hurt by leaving him out
>Carrie Fisher looks and sounds like shit, and has the worst interactions on screen with Han
>actually ruins Han Solo's character desu
>Finn and Poe are immediately best friends, calling each other nicknames, even running towards each other to hug passionately the SECOND time they ever meet. (probably the gay romance Disney will reveal in the next movie)
>muh Stronk woman Rey is typical Mary Sue instant badass, better pilot than Han Solo at his own ship, better force user/light saber than trained Kylo Ren
all of these are indisputable facts. Disney took a big fat steaming dump on the series and it's fan's by just creating another death star.
honestly i enjoyed the movie 7/10
That trailer was legitimately funny, but let me guess, /tv/ hated it.
Christmans Day surely calls for a James Bond Thread.
oh look whats just come online:
Merry Christmas !!
>Bridge of Spies
Gonna be a comfy day ser honesta familia.
What the fuck was his problem?
Why is The Force used to fill any lazy plot hole?
It's completely inexcusable on a fundamental writing level, but they made even The Force a part of the plot to eliminate part of the plot.
long story short; hipster chick I have class with loves french movies and wants to come over and watch a bunch of films
she's into "deep dramas" and "emotional adventures"
I'm more into stuff like Fury Road and Star Wars so I need you beautiful fuckers to help me pick out whatever pretentious garbage I need to watch to get her to not hate the night
It's a quirky weird movie that's a bit interesting at the start but super boring after that so 15 minutes in you can realize that she doesn't give a shit about film and that she'd rather be proper fucked
5>4>6>=7>=3>Power Gap>1>Power Gap>Power Gap>Power Gap>Power Gap>Power Gap>2
Prove me wrong (pro-tip: you can't)
>implying I'm a TFA fanboy
Nah, 6>=7 ONLY because Empire lost to Ewoks. 3 was generally "eh whatever" but had a few cool or clever moments.
7 was... fine. Lazy rehash, gets far more praise than it deserves, gets away with a lot of crap, but not a whole lot specifically wrong with it. Despite how retarded the meme is, I could actually enjoy it if I just "turn off my brain :^)", which is more than I could say for 1 & 2.
