If they had more trained pilots than ships, why was Luke, who had no training with spaceships, flying an X-Wing?

Nobody is telling women to go topless. All we are saying is a woman’s body shouldn’t be treated as obscene.

A woman’s body isn’t treated as anymore obscene than a man’s.

Tell that to the top half of a woman’s body.

Really?

Men can walk around without a shirt, women can’t. You’re still saying a woman’s body isn’t treated any more obscene than a man’s?

What are you even talking about?

Women have to cover their private parts, men have to cover their private parts.

But what makes a woman’s nipple more private than a man’s?

Did you just pick a random frame from the movie? I don’t see what’s supposed to be so bad about it. Especially compared to the plastic CGI look of Clones and Sith.

Also, rating TFA a -1/10 has always been and will continue to be nothing more than a troll move to illicit negative reactions. So again, congratulations.

To be fair, I think the - was only used to separate the ranking from the title. All other rankings have it, too. Or he’s ranking Empire -10/10.

  • Rey immediately is an (untrained) formidable marks man hitting everything at a great distance while running away and shooting a stranger’s gun; Rey can even (incredibly) aim with the turret while she is piloting - Luke cannot, he is an average shot at best missing many shots;

Wrong. She attempts to fire the pistol at the Maz’s castle attack and forgets the safety is on. Then fires and misses before hitting the trooper and then runs away when the other troopers start firing. And Rey never fires the turret at any time in the movie. Finn is the one using the turret gun

  • Rey wants to stay home but only leaves for loyalty to her new friends and destiny - Luke wants to leave home, but stays out of weakness and loyalty (Owen/Beru);

Rey does not leave out of loyalty. The second they escape the planet, and throughout, she wants to return home but circumstances prevent this. It’s only later on in the film that she decides to stay.

  • Rey the scavenger is an incredible ace pilot: Without a copilot or any experience with the ship she masterfully pilots the bulky Falcon through an abandoned destroyer and graveyard under fire outmaneuvering trained combat pilots - Luke does not even understand how the cockpit of the MF works (“what’s that flashing?”);

And yet he was able to masterfully fly an X-wing, a ship that he had no experience with and had only ever flown a speeder in atmosphere, whereas Rey had said she had piloted ships, albeit only in atmosphere as well…

The term “Mary Sue” is a misogynistic term, no matter how much you want to pussy foot around it by saying its used for men too. Because it isn’t used anywhere near as often as it is towards a female character. . It was used against Rey for the sole fact that she was female by all those idiots that saw her as nothing more than the “Disney agenda” of giving females a strong role. Same crap was thrown at the main character of Rogue One. The second someone uses the term “Mary sue” invalidates any argument.

You replied to that thing? You are braver than I thought.

If you watch more of Shaun’s (and other’s) videos about cinemasins, you will see evidence that they are serious about what they say and that many people see their videos as serious criticism of the movies. And even if it’s all supposed to be a joke, they simply are not funny.

I see. In that case it should be fine.

In that case, the parents have to ask the kid for permission.

Now, I don’t know what to do. Can I speak to your parents?

Because Windows Vista is considered a particularly bad operating system in tech circles. And he can’t move because he’s scared, I guess.
