The Force Awakens: Official Review Thread - ** SPOILERS **
Time

I thought the movie was fun. Good action, not too serious. The only thing that bothers me is Luke’s lightsaber. In ESB, didn’t it (along with his hand) fall to oblivion down the shaft in Cloud City? Did someone find it and keep it all these years???

Couldn't have said it better myself...

“This new Vader cycle (the prequels) has split the one-time Old Republic that was Star Wars fandom into two warring factions: the Rebellion, and the normal people with a sense of perspective who don’t need a term from the Star Wars lexicon to define them. The Rebellion is populated by the joyless, cynical ubertrolls who, sadly, take up the most space on the Internet. These are the hollow men and women who marched into the prequels demanding that Lucas recapture their lost Star Wars youth for them – that simple time in their lives when they had the excuse of prepubescence to explain why they were still virgins. With that much investment in make-believe, its little wonder they emerged as more twisted by the dark side than young Skywalker himself. The rest of us who grew in the sixteen years between Jedi and Phantom Menace view the new trilogy for what it is: three movies, not three impossible-to-fulfill expectations of folks who need a bearded billionaire in flannel to dream for them.”

Peace my friends, and so-long.

So we don't need answers, but you gave one anyways, and now you are upset because your answer doesn't jive with the film? LOL.


I'm not upset that the 'answer' I gave doesn’t jive. I tired of everything having to be perfect around here. Why does everything have to be justified? You totally missed my point. Every little thing needs to be explained and discussed. Why doesn’t anyone enjoy things for what they are and not for what they could or should be.

You're sounding a but negative yourself, and I don't think this thread is the cause of it, either. Perhaps you should steer clear of threads that discuss unpalatable material. You might live longer.


Yes I have become negative. This whole message board is negative. All some of you do is criticize, complain and say how much better you could do.

I think I have turned a corner...

may not come back.

By the way, Amused to Death is one of my favorite albums ever.


Yes indeed. It is one of my favorites as well. The title and the basic idea came from a book titled (I think) "We are amusing ourselves to death". But I don't know the author. I have never read it and would like to. Do you have any info?

Not true. The command that he gave to Commander Cody was different from the command he gave to the fighter pilot. Apparently, "thinking for ones self" means ignoring what was in the films so that they make sense.




Either way, what's the big Deal? Why does everything have to have a proper answer? Why does everyone need to have an official answer from Lucas? Holy crap! Who really cares? Think what you want. Fill in the plot holes anyway you want. I don't know the movie inside out. I was making a suggestion. Why does it seem that everyone always finds the negative in things and has to put blame on someone for their unhappiness?

The problem with people today is that they have no imagination. They can't think for themselves. The Emperor did issue order 66 only once. It just showed it over to show the audience the different environments. The reason R2 seemed so much more 'useful' was because Anakin was constantly 'tinkering' with him. After Anakin 'died' nobody really 'took care' of R2. etc. etc.

The people downloading SHOULD NOT be punished. The people uploading it are the guilty ones. OK. So as you are downloading, you are also uploading some of it at the same time. How should this be handled?
