  1. It’s just what is in the movies.
  2. Yep it’s just whatever they want it changes in each movie.
  3. Budget and or storytelling necessity.
  4. Depends which EU sources you want to read.
  5. Most planets would just be a desert. Mercury, Venus, Mars. Earth is the anomaly.
  6. It’s just what is in the movies.
  7. Depends which EU sources you want to read.
  8. Depends which EU sources you want to read.

I found that his inclusion is less nonsensical that the way that the hologram is able to show such highly saturated reds suddenly.

I keep hearing this, but aren’t the holograms in the OT more than just monochromatic?

Very mildly which is why I say highly saturated. Like they’re saying ‘Guess who! Look here’s a red light saber you love those right!?’

I hope this is a joke.

Always. Or maybe never?

The characters in Star Wars has never been deep. Deal with it.

When you buy a Star Wars action figure 9 and 1/2 times out of 10 it’ll be a masked character or some kind of really cool creature, it won’t be a human character with a face. That should give any thinking person a clue as to what kind of film franchise Star Wars really is.

I already said they weren’t deep, and why it doesn’t always matter.

The rest of this is a non sequitur.

There’s characters in Rogue One. You might not like them but they’re there.

Not true. To like or dislike them they have to exist. Instead it’s a bunch of stand ins that are not developed. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that SW77 or even the PT has deep characters. But you need either real characterisation, or just simply fun screen presence and charisma. But you have to have one or the other.

It’s a really unfair barometer. I don’t remember the score for Alien off the top of my head but I’d never just assume that it’s bad because I don’t remember it. I could say the same about most of the movies I’ve seen, honestly.

Memorable and motivational are not the same thing. The music in Star Wars really gets you pumped. The music in Alien is a mixture of different atmospheres, both relaxed and disturbing. They’re supposed to be complimentary. A swashbuckling adventure and a tale of unknown dread. That bit where the A L I … appears is amazing. The fanfare as the fighters go into the trench run is amazing. But it’s a different amazing. Did Solo have either of those moments? I don’t remember any.

And Emilia Clarke…oh goodness is she amazing.

I’m gonna have to disagree with this. She isn’t bad but I don’t think to date I’ve ever seen a good performance out of her. She’s just always… Kinda there

Agreed. That joke where she has to move out of the co-pilot chair to let Chewbacca do his thing felt particularly bad, like something from the first cut before the acting coaches arrived.

The Official <em>LEGO Star Wars</em> Discussion and Review Thread

Yeah the old Lego Star Wars OT was fun enough. Before they started going overboard with those games and filling them with gimmicks like the LOTR one. That being said the Force Awakens is good, except for the split screen which is that horrible dynamic kind that swirls around when you’re both at a certain distance.

I don’t own any actual Lego sets though, its really over priced and I’d probably collect other kinds of merch given the chance.
