    The preachiness, while lazy in the extreme, isn't even the issue for me with the episode. Yeah, I'd like it if a writer could at least attempt to come up with a metaphor for their message that fits...

    Who, despite being so forgotten, made it to movie screens well before the rest of the them. Go figure.
  4. Even if Din Djarin showed up on the series, it...

    Even if Din Djarin showed up on the series, it would likely be a cartoon version of the origin beats we've already seen, although centered on the Mandalorians instead of him. So he'd be a background...

    And yet I took it the same scene in the complete opposite way. That it was the head librarian who was dismissing those runs in the way of a snooty lit critic, but it was the younger fan representing...
  6. TLJ and Rise are vague enough that I think you...

    TLJ and Rise are vague enough that I think you could make an argument that Ben loved Rey, but she didn't reciprocate those feelings. At least not in the same way. She cared for him, clearly. ...
  7. I'm actually less interested in any of that...

    I'm actually less interested in any of that previously established stuff than I am in Rey training Finn. And only because I feel like TLJ and Rise set up an interesting opportunity for the Jedi to...

    No, it was 100% on screen. We actually see Finn sense Rey's death from the Millennium Falcon. After all the build up throughout the movie, that's plenty of reveal.
  9. More than that, I think that Finn coming to that...

    More than that, I think that Finn coming to that place on his own, in his own time, is important to the larger theme of Rise. Nobody gets to tell you who you are. It's a choice you make. He was...

    So I don't want to get in the way of a potentially valid criticism of TLJ (and I say that as one of those weirdos that loves it), but there needs to be an important distinction made between Kylo Ren...
  11. It's that he is strong with the Force and can be...

    It's that he is strong with the Force and can be trained to be a Jedi. See his conversation with Janna on the moon of Endor, and then the fact that he senses Rey's "death" after she slays the...

    Well, at the risk of wading into the minutiae here, it's a matter of timing. If the Clone Wars flashback in the finale happens AFTER Maul seized Mandalore, but BEFORE the Siege of Mandalore at the...
  13. It's only one line, so everyone can be forgiven...

    It's only one line, so everyone can be forgiven for missing it, but the Force healing power comes at a cost. When Rey heals the serpent, she says she gave up some of her life, and moved it as Force...

    Luke called himself Luke Skywalker even as a child, though. It's his identity. He didn't abandon it after Vader because he never questioned who he was. He honored the man, Anakin Skywalker, who...

    That's not at all what is depicted in the comic. In any way. What is shown is Palpatine using the Dark Side to influence the pregnancy of an already 7-8 months pregnant Shmi.

    And considering...

    TP-1234 was Tarkin's son in law. Two weeks later his widow started dating an available Moff. I'm sure those two facts are unrelated.

    TP-7344 was a middle management type forcibly conscripted by...
  17. While I agree with you on the merits of TLJ, I...

    While I agree with you on the merits of TLJ, I think you're looking at the reveals in the wrong way. Luke learning his heritage plays into the central conflict of his story, which is external. Luke...
  18. It's true, the Skywalkers are just as bathed in...

    It's true, the Skywalkers are just as bathed in the darkness as the Palpatines. And have just as much blood on their hands. But Skywalkers also have good in them and can be powerful forces for...
  19. Nature vs nurture, I suppose. She wasn't raised...

    Nature vs nurture, I suppose. She wasn't raised a Palpatine. In as much as she was raised by anybody it was by Skywalkers. Hence the name at the end. Luke and Leia are, for all intents and...

    That he is Force sensitive. And presumably that he wants her to train him as a Jedi. It's one of the better built, if perhaps too subtle subplots in the film, actually.
  21. Now you're just mythologizing. There is...

    Now you're just mythologizing. There is documented evidence that the decision to make Vader into Anakin Skywalker came while writing Empire. From the director of said film. Why is he lying, in...
  22. If he masterminded one fleet, behind the scenes...

    If he masterminded one fleet, behind the scenes of the Republic where he had to manipulate, cajole and bribe, how can you have a problem with him building another one after he was the nearly...

    As opposed to the massive Republic fleet from the Clone Wars, which was built in 10 years or less?
  24. Yeah, you're seeing things that aren't there. ...

    Yeah, you're seeing things that aren't there. The line in question ultimately works once Vader is revealed as Anakin, but that clearly wasn't the intent of the original scene. Anakin Skywalker is...
  25. Actually, the answer to your points here is in...

    Actually, the answer to your points here is in the film, but as subtext rather than explicitly stated. The Force healing power has a cost. Rey outright states as much the first time she uses it on...
