If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place
Time

Is it me or has 2020 just been the year that keeps on violently combusting? Seriously hoping 2021 is at least somewhat better.

It’s been like that for me and still going well into 2021.

On another note, Spuffre really needs some mental help. I know life sucks I don’t want anyone else living through that.

Who the fuck thinks it’s okay to ban someone without providing them a clear warning and explanation of the offence? I can’t stop if you don’t tell me what I’m doing wrong. I’m not looking for trouble. If you tell me to stop I’ll stop. To be clear I’m talking about an unrelated Discord server.

I’m really on a low point right now. I’m struggling to function.

The camera movement looks odd, it looks as if the Star Destroyer is moving downwards from front to bottom towards Coruscant. Make the movement of Coruscant slower.

Yes it does look like that, but I think it’s neat. They’re ships, they’re supposed to move.

Im wondering how s that almost no one here considered cutting the Emperor completely from the film and making Kylo the main villain instead? 😄

Oh believe me, plenty of people have. Maybe just not on this thread.

Really, if there were a way to add a decade or two between the PT and OT, it would make the transition feel much more plausible, but alas, the twins birth ties our hands down.

Anyway, would it be possible to indicate Palpatine and Obi-Wan using Force healing in the scenes of discovering a burned Vader and discovering a knocked out Luke?

I know this may sound ridiculous but: What if Obi-Wan in Episode IV tells Luke that his mother (Padme) wanted him to have Anakin’s lightsaber when he was older? Instead of lying about Luke’s father (as usual)

That way, this wouldn’t be yet another of those “From another point of view” but something that actually could happen off-screen in Episode III

Where would we get Alec Guinness saying “mother” from?

Uh, what? In TFA, Rey accepts her family is never coming back to see or get her, and Finn learns to stop running away from the First Order and fight for someone: Rey.

I actually agree with this. The problem is Finn TFA should have him commit to the Resistance cause rather than stretching it to TLJ. It feels too slow. I felt like he was repeating his arc and only now do I realize he technically he was only going to Starkiller Base to save Rey. My mind had glossed over that and remembered him committing to the cause in TFA. It’s like memory is autocorrecting the script.

Not sure how old you are but college worked best for me. Kinda hard given the world today though.

But the internet wouldn’t be my first choice for looking for dates.

I am in college! Socially distanced college. My classes are all online. Idk if you guys have heard but there’s a bit of a plague going around. The internet is literally my only option.

Good luck flirting during class, over video chat. You can dm during the class but I feel like everyone kinda wants to pay attention, not to mention it’s pretty hard to break the ice in such situations.

The Jedi and the Force are not explained in TPM. The only time it does touch on them with Midichlorians, it does so in a way that assumes the audience already knows what the Force is. Oh and Darth Maul’s double saber, while not important, is a lot more mindblowing after three movies of single sabers than one. Hell, even Luke’s green saber is a revelation in terms of what a lightsaber can be.

I’m still in a rut over my recent breakup. Why is it so hard to meet women on the Internet? I looked into it and apparently Reddit (which I use regularly) is the most male dominated social site while Pinterest (which I can’t fucking stand) is the most female dominated social site. Jeez, talk about bad odds. Where can I meet women? Oh and don’t say dating apps because those are fuckin’ horrible. You don’t even know anyone there, how are you supposed to know if you wanna date 'em? I need an opportunity to get to know a person first.

Peter, your whole Exegol idea is confusing me.

Elayem, I really like Ben calling R2 old friend.

I agree with the overall sentiment that everything must adhere to the OT and the OT can’t be changed to suit other things instead is nonsense. A lot of changes that can be made to it are fairy trivial but at a lot to the sense of continuity. I think trying to preserve the twists is silly, tho. Everyone and their dog knows who Vader is, and the OT should be watched first.

Destroying his mask was a symbol of autonomy, relying on himself, free from bondage or trying to free himself. The mask was a symbol of him being trapped in his desires to have control. He takes control when he destroys the mask, and he realises he does not have control when he remakes it. When he takes the mask of throughout IX, it’s to take control of a situation.

Destroying his mask represents deconstructing tropes and reforging it represents reconstructing them. It’s the story of a thesis, antithesis, and synthesis.
