Happy birthday to him!

I’m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

It has been established that droids can feel pain, as evidenced by the droid torture chamber in Jabba’s Palace, though C-3PO seems to shrug it off (maybe he occasionally reacts to pain when being reassembled but my memory is fuzzy on that one), so it seems droids have a pain program that can be activated.

My question is why would droids be programmed to feel pain?

“I warned my apprentice that as he grew stronger his equal in the light would rise. Skywalker, I assumed, wrongly.”

He wasn’t entirely wrong.

Also, do you think maybe Palpatine was written to want Rey dead in order to harmonize or lampshade the weirdness of his proxy (Snoke) seeming to pretty sincerely?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Would anyone here be interested in a Star Wars voting thread? Not just another thread where everyone ranks the movies, but one where the placement would have point values. Someone would then add up all the points to make a general consensus of everyone who participated.

It could be just the movies, or could include the animated series and The Mandalorian. Maybe the Ewok movies and Holiday Special too. All of that would have to be decided in advance so everyone is on the same page. Going by the name of this community, pretty sure the Original Trilogy movies would come out on top, but it would be interesting to see how everything else placed after that.

I’d support that. Sounds fun.

Yeah, I’d be interested in that.

The friendship theme from TROS is pretty damn good.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

ROTS has the least Star Wars-y score of all 9 saga films, but it’s beyond incredible and fits the movie - which itself breaks many SW conventions - perfectly.

Which theme would that be?

Can be heard as Rey recovers the Wayfinder on Ach-To, and at the end when the three leads hug.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Once I finish ‘Light Of The Jedi’ I think I’ll drown it in darkness.

I’d like to watch the movie-fied version of the KOTOR game(s), followed by reading some or all of the Old Republic era novels. Then the Darth Bane trilogy (which I remember enjoying a handful of years ago), then Darth Plagueis (again).

By then I’ll have excavated and explored the Dark Side to harness its power for my own ends.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

You send them a pic of your child, and they turn it into a Star Wars poster as a birth announcement.

Watching The Rise of Skywalker for a second time definitely made me enjoy it more for what it is and realise I think the best comparison for it is Sam Raimi’s Spider Man 3. Both suffered from being overstuffed, both messed with established lore to certain degrees, had studio interference in production, had uncomfortable endings, and yet both can be fun and cringeworthy at the same time. I’d say Spider Man 3 is slightly better though.

The Rise of Skywalker is now ranked eighth in my rankings just ahead of The Force Awakens and right below The Last Jedi.

"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas

Not the first time I’ve heard about it, but yes, I’m a huge fan of the idea of the Force being inherently evil, which would explain why dark side powers are much more awesome than light side powers.

I’m pretty sure Lucas would argue that destruction doesn’t qualify as true power. That’s kind of the whole point of the SW movies. Heck, the OT even ends with Luke choosing not to fight.

It’s basically the whole power must be used responsibly thing.
