  1. The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    As a random aside, the Cetacean labs on the Enterprise D is believed to be a reference to those porpoises.
  2. The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    Gunbuster is in some ways a fairly serious series. The tech level at the end just gets a bit mad (there's a shot of a broadside from one of the cruisers taking out some enemies and a nearby planet is blown up. If I wanted silly I'd have posted the Chouginga Dai-Gurren which is roughly moon sized. Regardless you're comparing psychic dolphins to a universe with space wizards.

    Someone made a good comment on this on one of my other forums: "As far as we were told, the galactic situation is as follows. There is a New Republic ruling over most of the galaxy. They have recently been demilitarising because everyone is tired of war. There is a small rump Empire known as the First Order, which is basically an isolationist, pariah state tucked away in the corner of the galaxy that nobody takes seriously. Apart from Leia and her old rebel friends like Ackbar, that is, who suspect the First Order are up to something, and have been building up a kind of private paramilitary force known as the 'Resistance' to combat them. The new film opens days after the First Order launched a murderous terrorist attack and destroyed the Republic's capital. They were then dealt a stunning defeat by the Resistance - their superweapon is lost, the galaxy at large is now aware of their intentions, and people everywhere are surely going to be pissed. They should be in the back foot but instead they now arbitrarily rule the galaxy with no explanation. This is a galaxy where every major corporation, every regional power, every criminal organisation has sizeable military forces - are we really supposed to believe that the entire galaxy is filled with secret Empire sympathisers just waiting for a moment like this to pull the black uniform out of the back of the wardrobe like that episode of the Simpsons where the Soviet Union came back at the push of a button" Jump a ship in front of them? Palps got all the explanation he needed though. Snoke feels like he needs more.

    I really enjoyed it while watching it, but if you actually think about a lot of things in it then it starts to crumble a bit.

    Cute A-Wing pilot that needlessly died in the hanger had real waifu potential though.

    Ye, Rose was cool.
  8. Film is awesome and very fun. A lot of touching character moments and cool battles and setpieces. Only negative thoughts: - I feel the new films fail on worldbuilding. They don't have any more than the original films did, however, these ones feel like they need it more. It wasn't helped by Force Awakens dropping most of the scenes setting up the relationship between the Republic, Resistance, and 1st Order. The Republic lost its capital, it's fleet (because they're numpties) and the 1st Order has dominated the galaxy again in a short space of time. Felt like a rush to get back to rebels vs empire. - Hopefully, that isn't it for Snoke. He feels like a wasted character who was just a device to corrupt Ren and bring him and Rey together. Force Awakens to me implied there'd be more to him. - It makes me slightly sad that the new films devalue the achievements of the cast of the original trilogy. The New Republic lasts a few years then falls and Empire 2.0 is back. Luke fails at Jedi. Now when you watch the happy Yub Yub celebration at the end of Return of the Jedi you know it's just going to all fall apart.
