So why are you guys fans of these teams? Do you like the uniforms? Is there a sense of pride in having a connection to the city in which the stadium is located?

Connection to the city in which the stadium is located. People that live in my area cheer for the Philly teams. It should be illegal to choose to become a fan of a team because you like their uniforms.

What’s so different about that? At least if you like the uniforms then there’s personal taste there. You don’t choose where you’re born.

You may not choose where you’re home town is still you’re home town. When you watch the Olympics do you cheer for team USA or the country whose colors you like the best?

Neither.

People saying Vader was fan service in RO: wasn’t he originally supposed to have all of Tarkin’s scenes before they gave the go-ahead for the CGI? I think he originally had a much larger role.

Plus, I think he fit just fine in the film. I actually think, unlike the ST, RO gets better with each viewing.

His appearance in itself wouldn’t be fan service if he did something of value to the plot. Mon Mothma and Jimmy Smits weren’t fan service. They had a tangible purpose in the film. I’d have much preferred Vader to the cartoon Tarkin though. His lightsaber battle actually might have been better had he been built up in the film itself and not just thrown in there under the assumption that he’s the most badassest villain in the galaxy.

4K restoration on Star Wars

Reliance MediaWorks said they restored the trilogy in 4k. Nothing was ever confirmed, denied, or released.

Mike Verta use some of the Reliance footage in a “Reality Check” video. It looked awful. Especially compared to his work on Legacy.

I remember the color correction looking slightly different than his in three one-second-long, low-resolution clips. I wouldn’t call that awful. Also, unless Mike Verta’s restoration is released in a format that I can see, then I can’t consider it any better than any other restoration. If no one can see it, then it might as well not exist. That’s how I feel about Reliance and that’s how I feel about Legacy.

Somehow it was my fault they were being obnoxious.

I feel like there’s a lot more to this story.

I asked why they had to do that because I was trying to watch the movie, they answered, “Why do you care?”.

People like that shouldn’t be allowed out in public.

The Place to Go for Emotional Support

I hate myself but also get that learning to live with yourself is the only way to feel any real happiness. I don’t try to learn to live with myself because I don’t care anymore, but if you’re interested in bettering your quality of life then it’s something you should look into.

Why not fight in ANH then? He could’ve got to the plans before Leia sent then away with R2. I normally wouldn’t nitpick the point because obviously a fight like that wouldn’t have worked in 1977, but so many people are claiming that R1 is a fluid lead-in to the OT that it’s worth mentioning. As for the dogfight, he’s the best starpilot in the galaxy and the Death Star was about to be blown up just before it could destroy the rebellion.

EDIT: It was just an excuse to get a Vader lightsaber scene in the movie.

I think it would’ve been perfect for Vader’s one and only appearance in RO to have been him emerging from the shadows and mercilessly killing a dozen rebels.

Perfect other than being completely out of character. He never does that in the OT. He’s not a soldier, why risk his life that way? And why not do it five minutes later when they actually board the ship in ANH?

Well yeah no shit but once again it’s not the phone’s fault it’s the dumbass who is holding the phone.

Smartphones amplify people’s stupidity.

I don’t think that criticizing Rogue One for fan service is fair. It’s not as if it could get away without using X-Wings and TIE Fighters.

I think that’s a problem with Star Wars as a franchise. It was always at it’s core just a trilogy of good movies. It isn’t a vast universe and the fact that they can’t “get away without” the original imagery as its selling point is a prime example of that.

On the sigh thing, you didn’t explain till later.

You really couldn’t understand that this:

If only it were possible for all teams to lose all of their games, then everyone would be disappointed. That’d sure make me happy.

?

was an attempt at asking for an explanation as to why all teams losing and everyone being disappointed would make you happy?

My post was so self-explanatory that I didn’t think it needed explanation. I obviously was expressing distaste for sports fandoms.

How about everybody calls it whatever they want because no one cares and it doesn’t matter. The most you’ll ever have to do is clarify a little bit if someone doesn’t get it.

This film will be good. It will feature Chewbacca. It will feature the Falcon. It will feature the Empire. It will have Jabba in it. . . .

It has a lot of ‘Star Wars’ things in it . . .

This is the stuff that doesn’t win me over. I don’t care if iconic Star Wars imagery appears on screen. It’s meaningless to me. To me, Jabba was just a threat that motivated Han to stay on the move and help Obi Wan and Luke. To me, Stormtroopers are just the imperial footsoldiers. To me, the Falcon was just the ship that functioned better than you’d think at first glance and it got Han and Lando safely through many battles. If I want to see movies with those things in them, I’ll watch the OT. And by the way, the OT isn’t something that is good because of any of those iconic sets, puppets, costumes and images. The OT’s greatness is much less superficial than that. I think this is why Rogue One brought me no excitement. I just don’t care about seeing all these old things showing up in new movies.

I posted the sigh without context because your question mark and the post telling me that it was a question mark were as obnoxious and unhelpful as your contextless sighs.

You guys sure are giving hand man s*** for trying to improve his own outlook on things.

I applaud anyone taking concrete steps to solve their own problems.

I support his decision and recently did the same by ceasing my laptop use. Now I spend only about forty minutes on the internet at most each day and am trying to cut that down too. I think I’m doing better because of it.
