You have been asked to explain your reasons - if you choose not to, or don’t see the point in doing so, then that is on you - do not deflect that onto others.

Sorry, this part you added (edited in) afterwards and was not included in my previous reply.

Anyway, you were the first one asking for explanation. Before you, dahmage and TV’s Frink were just being hostile and rude (pretty sure they broke at least two forum rules).

So I will restate my reasons for you. I think TFA hardly has a storyline. It is basically just a collection of elements they wanted to rehash plus some random elements that have nothing to do with what was supposed to be the main plot objective of the film (that is finding Luke). Just one of many examples: death star is completely irrelevant to the plot objective.

I stated that i reported you, and that i believe you are being an unreasonable troll for CONSTANTLY making the ridiculous statement that TFA is “pure shit”. If you only vented this over the top rating once or twice i would consider it just you venting, but you bring it up practically every time you choose to post on this site. Which really seems like the actions of a Troll. I guess i am the one that needs to change though.

If you think something is wrong you can just report. False accusations and especially name-calling is unnecessary (let alone against forum rules).

I was only expressing my opinion, for which I explained the underlying reasons several times in the past. I do not see the point of explaining the same reasons to the people who are already familiar with them whenever I want to repeat my opinion. Especially since whenever I do restate my reasons behind my opinion I get these kind of responses:

If you don’t see the point of explaining (or repeating) your reasons as to your opinions then I suggest you keep those opinions (which you certainly don’t mind repeating) off this site.

There is no forum rule against restating an opinion without restating the reasons. If the rules are updated to incorporate that, I will gladly abide it. So far I have strictly abided every forum rule.

TV’s Frink said:

Why would anyone give him the benefit of the doubt? He’s got a proven track record.

What would that track record be? Staying on topic. Never breaking the forum rules. Being civil, even when people throw insults at me.

Why’s it easier to cut the origami shot? The dream comes out much more cleanly, and the origami shot still has meaning without the dream (Gaff is telling Deckard that escaping with Rachel is just a fantasy that can never be real). The dream, on the other hand, means nothing without the origami shot at the end.

Deckard falling for Rachel is being a unrealistic and unicorn nicely represents that. But this can apply to both the origami and the dream. The difference is that the dream would imply that Deckard himself subconsciously knows it, while with origami, Gaff is relying that fact to him. So, the dream can stand on its own just as easily.
