I hate the exhaust port complaint. People say that the Empire should’ve just covered it up, but that defeats the purpose of an exhaust port! It’s established that the port is tiny and apparently only someone with extreme propensity for the force can even hit it. Also, the port wasn’t what destroyed the Death Star. It was a chain reaction explosion caused by a torpedo making it all the way down the port and into the center of the space station. It isn’t like the exhaust port was a self-destruct button.

The funny thing is that when Lucasfilm addresses this complain, they add even more improbable and implausible stuff on top of the original plausible but improbable stuff.

Agreed. The dumb ideas added in RO are the problem, not the original plans that needed to be researched to find the weakness in 1977.

What is the problem with the RO explanation?

This is not how you do this thread right hahaha.

Ohhhhhh.

But for real, it was a top secret plan they needed to steal, in order to research a strategy. The one weakness, something the villains overlooked because they were arrogant (they didn’t consider a small fighter attack to be a threat). Now it’s because some guy put the flaw in there all along… eugh.

That Darth one isn’t one I’ve ever been able to get worked up about either way, but I guess I understand the complaint.

It’s a small complaint, yes. But it’s one step away from making everyone who’s bad wield a red lightsaber and know how to use Force Lightning™. A further step into lunacy and you get names like Grievous and Tyrannous, and slowly it all starts to look like ideas from a 9 year old’s crayon drawing.

That Darth is a title, not a name. I mean, why the hell not? First of all, it’s a solid portmanteau (“Dark Lord of the Sith”). Second of all, maybe this is just me, but I think Darth is kind of a funny name, but works fine as a title. Also, despite what people say, there is nothing in the OT that would suggest this shouldn’t be the case.

Disagree. At least in terms of how Obi-wan refers to him which suggests he was called Darth before he turned to evil and that was his first name. Before 1999 it didn’t show up as a title for any other EU characters. It just shows the total lack of imagination and writing skills George had when he scribbled out TPM.

I think ROTS is probably the worst because it’s trying sooo hard to be the bridge into the OT. I don’t really consider any of the PT better or worse that each in general film terms, they all just merge together. But when you’re genuinely supposed to see characters as the same people from a few decades later in the OT the third one implodes the most.

The way Luke actually died. For no fucking reason. At all.

Not. Fucking. Cool. Rian.

My nephew and I were discussing this…why DID he die? Did he use up all his life force when he astral projected? I mean, WTF?

I’m sure Official Lucasfilm product -

Well I’d say there’s a line in the movie that directly explains it, but then I’m not sure why you’re quoting posts from December.

Worst thing: John Williams’ weak and anemic score.

Couldn’t disagree more on this point, though I’d have liked to hear more new motifs in TLJ.

Okay, let me clarify. The score is good, but it sounds weak and anemic, mainly due to the freelance orchestra he’s using. Listen to the opening titles of TFA and TLJ, it sounds awful. Lacks any sort of “oomph”.

Oh, I 100% agree about the opening titles, but that’s not as big an issue with the rest of the score IMO. I do think the music is mixed too low in much of TFA, though.

The crawl in both sounds really tinny.

What else can I really say? I liked the movie but too much of the score sounds like ROTS drums or just the same arrangements of stuff I liked more in TFA. I get that people thought it developed those motifs, but I don’t agree.

But when THIS comes on it’s like an adrenaline surge right in the heart.
