  1. The dichotomy between the way the film and Rey...

    The dichotomy between the way the film and Rey treat “Kylo” vs “Ben” is one thing that I think hurts the effectiveness of the redemption. They treat the two personas as totally different...
  2. I think they could have adjusted with one or two...

    I think they could have adjusted with one or two KOR in TROS in spite of TLJ’s lack of movement with them, given them some personality, have one or two be Kylo’s confidantes, and establish them as...
  3. After TFA, I was someone hoping that we’d end up...

    After TFA, I was someone hoping that we’d end up seeing that either Luke experimented with abandoning the no-attachments thing (...at least enough to explain Rey...) or that Rey would end up...
  4. It’s easier to provide an ironic but tragic...

    It’s easier to provide an ironic but tragic element to a clown than to try and reciting a “misaligned and maligned” dramatic character like Rose. Lucas could push Jar Jar to the background, and since...
  5. I would add that I think Rey suffered more public...

    I would add that I think Rey suffered more public criticism for it in part because of the sometimes sexist-elements of Mary Sue criticism, and as part of the butt-hurt objections raised by the same...
  6. Funny thing about him overall is that when he...

    Funny thing about him overall is that when he first walked on screen as a bad guy and froze a blaster bolt in mid-air... that wound up arguably being the character’s high point as a villain and...
  7. I found TFA could largely get away with some...

    I found TFA could largely get away with some comedy for Finn because it still gave him a boat-load of plot important dramatic scenes to offset any of the damage to taking him seriously as a character...
  8. I actually don’t mind that, or even Palpatine...

    I actually don’t mind that, or even Palpatine blasting ships down with Force Lightning. It’s just the way their used in context that makes them kind of “eh, I don’t like that.” I mean, I actually...
  9. Hey, at least when Marvel’s tall creepy evil guy,...

    Hey, at least when Marvel’s tall creepy evil guy, Knife, started pursuing their original female heroine Dani while still being a bad guy, she at least reacted like he was what he was - a creepy ass...
  10. I believe that Crozier almost certainly knew for...

    I believe that Crozier almost certainly knew for a fact he was acting an unconventional and risky way that would be construed as disrespectful to the chain of command, though not as outright...
  11. Eh, still a better story than Reylo and...

    Eh, still a better story than Reylo and Bendemption with the Clonepatine 2: Electric Boogaloo.
  12. He does kill more if I recall, but Rey handles...

    He does kill more if I recall, but Rey handles herself well, and I think the thing that sticks with the audience about the actual characters of the scene in Rey and Kylo is the scene ends with them...
  13. You’ve got the Skywalkers “proper” through Cade...

    You’ve got the Skywalkers “proper” through Cade Skywalker and his uncle, the Fels are Solo and Antilles descendants, and the Solos have an outright descendant through Jacen’s daughter as well.
    ...
  14. The fact that the Praetorian Guards had a better...

    The fact that the Praetorian Guards had a better action scene and wound up being more impressive than the Knights Of Ren adds to the frustration, and in a weird way kind fo doubles down on the idea...
  15. I’m a little wary of some possible sexism on my...

    I’m a little wary of some possible sexism on my part when I complain about Rey lifting the rocks in TLJ, though I hope I’m being 100% honest when I argue my issue with the scene is more that there’s...
  16. That’s the smartest idea in terms of major...

    That’s the smartest idea in terms of major projects - get away from the Skywalker Saga entirely, or if you’re attached to it, make sure you’ve got supreme flexibility in the background thanks to the...
  17. *IF* Rey is a Mary Sue... then Ben Solo’s *definitely* a “Gary Stu.”

    Running this argument by you guys to get some evaluations.

    Rey has had to deal with a lot of criticism comparing her to the somewhat sexist and ill-defined “Mary Sue” fan fiction character type: a...
  18. The way I see it, most of TFA is either original...

    The way I see it, most of TFA is either original or at least a very interesting twist on familiar concepts and ideas... until you get to Starkiller Base, what time does, and how it gets finally blown...
  19. What lack of originality the Sequel Trilogy had...

    What lack of originality the Sequel Trilogy had was likely more of a quiet but consistent belief on the part of multiple people involved that either a) they needed to be as far away from the OT as...
  20. TLJ has the 18 hour Space Chase that everyone...

    TLJ has the 18 hour Space Chase that everyone continues to treat seriously even as multiple ships jump in and jump out without being followed. And that’s apparently enough time for Rey to get over...

    This CNN article was interesting, and may help explain the disparity seen when Trump’s approval ratings went up significantly, but the polling vs Biden and Bernie only improved a tiny bit for him:...
  22. Poll: I’m cheating a bit - I hit “other” and I’ll put...

    I’m cheating a bit - I hit “other” and I’ll put down “A sufficiently challenging and clever conflict.”

    A good enough heist story he has to prevent, a good enough murder story, a good enough “war,”...

    Rodenberry’s “Utopoian Humanity” schtick didn’t really come into being until he was working on TNG’s first season; he had no problem with flawed humanity and internal conflict on TOS, and the Decker...

    Rathbone supposedly said that when he made the Court Jester, Danny Kaye was the best naturally gifted on screen opponent he’d ever met, able to basically copy any of the moves they had to make just...

    How about those issues of New 52 Teen Titans where Scott Lobdell made his Kid Flash become Bar Torr, future space terrorist, and then had Solstice blow away a future space judge?

    That was like a...
