The entire space battle makes very little sense and honestly the Dreadnought didn't seem remotely threatening considering the level of ease it was dealt with. Poe's plan exposed the fleet with lack of star fighter cover.
Funny how a bowcaster bolt kills Stormtroopers in armor hurling them several feet but barely phases an unarmored teen with no knowledge it was about to hit him. That entire scene can be summed up in shitty plot armor, so don't go on about kylo's wound taking a toll on him when he's just apparently not very good at what he does next to mary sue. Rey is somehow a better fighter than both kylo and Luke in spit eof having far less experience in lightsaber combat, is magically stronger than both of them with far more control than either at that age or stage of training. Again there's tapping into the Force and then using the force like a lvl 20 Wizard in D7D with zero negatives.
why do u hate america? if it were not for us u guys would be lost. i mean we invented the tv, we invented the internet, cars and we even went to the planet moon. we won all the wars and we always help the little countries who cant fight and we give food to poor people.
And Force-augmented reactions has often been shown as one of the most common manifestations even in the untrained (see Anakin's podracing).
ANAKIN : Have you ever seen a Podrace?QUI-GON : They have Podracing on Malastare. Very fast, very dangerous.ANAKIN : I'm the only human who can do it.SHMI looks askance at her son.ANAKIN : (Cont'd) Mom, what? I'm not bragging. It's true. Watto says he's never heard of a human doing it.QUI-GON : You must have Jedi reflexes if you race Pods.
KITSTER : (to Anakin) This is so wizard! I'm sure you'll do it this time, Annie.PADME : Do what?KITSTER : Finish the race, of course!PADME : You've never won a race?ANAKIN : Well...not exactly...PADME : Not even finished?!
Forever the cynic, I would like to point out that Hamill is probably only changing his tune because Disney is probably up his arse for his original denouncement of his character.
There is zero evidence of this, and it isn't even necessary: the movie is doing just fine at the box office regardless of what Hamill says for or against it.
Oh and Poe is subconsciously using the force to be a good pilot? Now I dislike him even more, nice. Wedge was a great pilot (not that OT gives him any screen time) and he had no force. So far the best thing to come out of the new trilogy is Saturday Night Live's Undercover Boss with Kylo Ren.
Of course it is. It didn't have any major titles to compete against, it's the holiday season and it's been easily established that people will go watch something with a familiar title whether it is decent or paltry. There is a fairly high drop off rate though in it's second week and beyond.
There is always a drop off after the opening weekend. It is still the top grossing film of the year, and this does not at all dispute my contention that there is zero evidence that Disney is pressuring Hamill or others regarding what they say about it.http://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekend/?yr=2017&p=.htm
From Phantom Menace:And then later Qui-Gon tests Anakin's blood for midichlorians affinity to the Force.There's also this bit:
Sometimes you sound like you are a Disney employee, lol. All companies who own rights of big film franchises would protect the secrecy surrounding their films, as well as the films' reputations, prior to, or shortly after release, and regardless of the box office success or critical acclaim. It's absolutely safe to assume that Hamill was at the very least politely notified to not undermine the film in interviews, etc., considering how prominently he was doing it ever since the first trailer for TLJ was released.
Hey, if Rey and Kylo want to have a naked Force chat, I'm all for it. I'd guess it was to avoid any charges of over-sexualizing a character - consider the backlash the film would've received had a Force chat begun while Rey was topless, whether the audience can see anything taboo or not, for treating her as a sex object. There's a bit more leeway with sexualizing male characters these days, and the "this is uncomfortable, can you put on a shirt?" joke wouldn't have worked as well in reverse.
Funny you mention it. Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isac, John Boyega, and Daisy Ridley in a interview with some talk show (this was before TFA released) a had some funny coments on that. Carrie Fisher states to Daisy Ridley that she will end up with people having masterbation fantansies and various "other things" It is rather entertaining because it is true. Slave Leia literally turned Leia into more of sex object then she already was. Trust me though it will only get worse overtime
3. Yeah.... Poe and Rey did have something happen there... it was clear. I will stand by and say these two have chemistry. CHALLENGE ME IF YOU DARE!4. Poe did abosultely nothing wrong( i will defend this point to the fucking end)6. Rey is defintely not a Mary Sue. Ben Solo was taking on three guards while she was having trouble with one7. Poe Dameron is a badass.
Rey is definitely still a Mary Sue. She shouldn't be able to fight the guards (who have probably trained for years), period. And she doesn't actually struggle in the fight until the last guard, which is also when Kylo is struggling with his last guard because of the rule of drama. I also really dislike Poe, sure he's a badass I guess but that's really his entire character. He's overly reckless and an amazing pilot and he always wins, the end. Saying he did nothing wrong is a bit silly since he blatantly disobeys orders and gets most of the fighters killed. I'm with him for going against Holdo later but that entire plot line is trash anyway.
Right, the guy only comes out and says he flat out disagreed with the direction of the character and had to pretend he was playing someone else, but then magically after people start massively putting that up after a few days I'm sure his newfound praise for the film, you'll notice he still never says he agrees with the character change itself, only that it's for the story to be pushed out of the comfort zone that is good. I'm SURE Disney didn't have anything to do with that considering it owns two broadcast companies and has ties to a lot of the voice acting business that Hamill is actually most known for. I'm absolutely positive that they didn't put one tiny bit of pressure on him to to praise their new cash cow.
