    -Mark Hamill’s acting in The Last Jedi was the best we’ve seen in the series so far.
    -Midichlorians ain’t that bad.
    -General Grievous kinda sucks as a villain. Maybe if we get some more development for him down the line then I’ll change my mind, but as of right now, his character doesn’t do much for me. Which leads to my next point...
    -People complain about there not being enough intimidating villains in the newer movies, when the Prequels only really had Darth Maul.
    -The Battlefront 2 (2017) campaign isn’t that bad; just the misleading marketing.
    -Savage Opress is an underrated character who didn’t get enough screentime in TCW.
    -I prefer the design of the First Order Stormtroopers over the Imperial ones.
    -I don’t have that big of a problem with Starkiller Base and to me, it’s one of the coolest looking locations in the saga.
    -People are overhyping the new Clone Wars season. Don’t get me wrong, it looks great and I’m super excited for it, but I feel that some people are setting their expectations too high for a story that we already know most of the details of.
    -Galaxy’s Edge may be the coolest, most immersive theme park ever.
    -Thrawn is an overrated character.
    -I don’t care for Mace Windu and I find him to be pretty unlikable and I feel that was intentional to show how flawed the Jedi were at this time. Windu is the embodiment of the Republic-era Jedi’s hubris.
    -Barriss Offee is an underrated character and I’d like to see some more of her journey leading up to when she frames Ahsoka in TCW.
    -Kanan is another underrated character and I’d like to see more stories about him.
    -We should get a continuation of the Poe Dameron comic after TROS comes out.
    -Starkiller is way more overpowered and “Mary Sue”-ish than Rey is.
    -I kinda love Watto. Want to know what happened to my Toydaian boi after Episode 2.
    -I don’t really like the Phase 1 Clone Armor. Phase 2 all the way!
    -I love the Sequels, but I agree that the ship designs are pretty lazy, as much as I enjoy seeing X-Wings and TIE Fighters flying around again.
    -If the Tatooine segment of ROTJ was trimmed down a significant amount, then the movie would be much better.
    -I don’t mind any of the Special Edition changes to ESB and there are some that I prefer in ANH and ROTJ.
    -That being said, the Jedi Rocks singing scene from the SE of ROTJ is the worst scene from any Star Wars movie ever and it is the only scene I will ever skip when watching any of the movies. The Bor Gullet from RO is a close second but it doesn’t insult my eyes and ears like Jedi Rocks does. :p
    -TR-8R should never have existed. It should have been Phasma who dueled Finn on Takodana.
    -We will at least see the Force Ghost of Anakin in TROS.
    -I like Steve Blum, but Zeb is the worst character in Star Wars Rebels.
    -I want to see more of Tobias Beckett.
    -I don’t mind the political scenes from the prequels.
    -I didn’t have a problem with the Rose/Finn kiss from TLJ and would have even less of a problem if they do ened up being a couple in TROS.
    -Aside from the silly POWAHHHH!!! and duel with Yoda scenes, ROTS was Palpatine’s best movie.
    -I don’t like Yub Nub that much.
    -I don’t want TROS to have a Tatooine binary sunset ending. I wouldn’t be mad if it did, but I’d like to see something else.

    Okay that’s it from me this time folks.

    Yes!

    :eek:

    Yes!

    Yes!

    ...and thrice yes!

    Which segues directly to:

    Phasma went out like a punk in TLJ... I was genuinely disappointed.
    [​IMG]

    Making a Lego set out of this is top drawer trolling...
    [​IMG]

    ...but still runner up to a set based on a vehicle which didn't even appear
    [​IMG]

    There's A LOT of different/not different dustbowl outer rim planets... some might say too many
    [​IMG]

    Lando had some damned nerve in TESB - stitching up his mate on Bespin, recanting, assuming control of his ship and best mate and then still has the balls to raid Han's wardrobe too before flying off to rescue him!

    I feel differently about this. There was something off putting and aggressive about Kylo when he said “You keep holding on! Let go!” and when he went all Darcy on Rey, she was left with no other option but to fight for that lightsaber and get the hell out... Rey knows that Kylo kills impulsively (After all she witnessed the disturbing way in which he killed his father). She realised she had made a mistake about Kylo’s frame of mind and that her only option was to escape.

    I actually thought that story was really good... There is nothing like a good entrance and Han Solo had one of the best in cinema history stepping into the Falcon... As for the KanjiKlub and the rathtars, I thought it was goofy but short enough to be thrilling and fun. Clever of JJ to introduce that kind of thing with Harrison Ford around. He just does those “Indiana Jones” action moments better than anyone... and the audience was so happy to see Ham Solo on screen again, that they couldn’t care less about the rathtars and the gangs. Strategic.

    Lol he actually did!

    But it was all “expediency” as Billy Dee says ;)

    Okay, hopefully I get the term "hot takes" right... xD

    - Kylo Ren is the best character in the whole Star Wars Saga
    - I prefer ROTS over ANH
    - ROTJ is my most favorite Star Wars movie
    - I don't think R1 and ANH work that good together
    - I don't care about the animated series (TCW, Rebels, Resistance)
    - I don't get the hype and love for Ahsoka Tano
    - I like the idea of the Yuuzhan Vong in the old EU
    - Jango Fett > Boba Fett
    - I don't want to see a pure Vader spin-off movie
    - I like the romance/relationship-depiction of Anakin and Padme in the PT
    - I don't care about Ackbar's off-screen death in TLJ, he was just a minor character
    - Rey is not a Mary Sue
    - TFA is (so far) the best Disney Star Wars movie
    - I really enjoy the stuff on the "Star Wars Kids" YouTube channel, especially "Galaxy of Adventures"
    - I would have depicted Luke much darker and more broken, than RJ did in TLJ
    - As kid my favorite Star Wars videogame was "Jedi Power Battles" for PS1
    - I don't like seeing Yoda fight with a lightsaber, same goes for Palpatine. I actually think Sith shouldn't have lightsabers. Vader is an exception because he was once a Jedi
    - I like the planet of Jakku quite a lot

    These are the things which come into my mind right now.

    Luke killed Rey's parents (because they were dark siders and dangerous) and even wanted to kill young Rey (to prevent more darkness), but Ben convinced him not to do it. So, they dropped her off on Jakku. All this lead to a huge argument between Luke and his nephew which eventually was the final nail for Ben's fall.
    When Luke meets Rey, he recognises her and feels even more broken, because he was wrong about her. She didn't become a weapon of darkness, but joined the light side of the Force and the Reistance.

    This would have been my take on the story. Kinda...

    • Ian Mcdiarmid deserved a supporting actor oscar nomination for Revenge of the Sith
    • You can no longer class Darth Vader cinematic Villain as the character of Annakin has had more screen time as a good guy.
    • So far the prequel trilogy is better then the sequel trilogy
    • Solo has the best cinematography in Star Wars
    • Kylo Ren/ Ben isnt complex he just comes across as an angsty teenager who really just wants his mummy, the problem is the actor and character are in their 30's.
    • CGI Creatures regularly look better then practical effect creatures
    • The sequel trilogy has been rushed from start to finish.
    • The Special edition of Empire Strikes Back improves the film.
    • Rey's Theme is the best piece of music in Star Wars
    • General Hux is more annoying and daft then Jar Jar binks.

    "Hot take" is a silly name for just "speaking one's mind". This concept did not need a new rebranding.

    ^ You may treat this post as a "Hot take" if you so wish....

    • Poe Dameron should have been the co-lead of the Sequel Trilogy.
    • Jar Jar Binks isn't as bad as you remember. He's worse.
    • Knights of the Old Republic's "twist" was like a bad M. Night Shamylan movie.
    • The worst acting in the Prequel Trilogy wasn't Jake Lloyd or Hayden Christensen. It was Natalie Portman.
    • If you're watching Star Wars and worrying about dropping bombs in space, you are secretly a Star Trek fan, and should just come out with it.
    • All the fans who claim they will be skipping The Rise of Skywalker will be there opening night...and we all know it.

    Star Wars is now being made by people who don't understand what Star Wars is, or is about.

    The scene where Han gets the name Solo is great.

    He was an orphan for most of his life so he didn't really need a last name until he signed up for the military. The bored and simplistic way the recruitment officer decides on Solo simply because Han is alone, makes the Empire seem more real to me.

    The Emperor needs soldiers and he doesn't especially care how his officers recruit them or even what their names are. This makes it very clear that the nameless, faceless trooper is considered the perfect unit to make of the Empire's armed forces.

    I agree. It's a brilliantly ironic twist that the most improbably cool name of the coolest guy in Star Wars was a result of bureaucratic indifference prompted by Han's moment of hesitance and uncharacteristic reticence. Plus it's a sweet homage to young Vito's re-christening in Godfather pt II. (han)


    My "hot" take. The prequel trilogy should have been told from the Emperor's perspective.
