Lol. I that stormtropper was fucking great. They should do a spin off just about him.

He looked like a Japanese power-ranger with that blurry/days of our lives gloss, no?

Also, it's crazy if he's just a regularly trained stormtrooper. But still none of them can hit Chewie.

Who would win:

 

vs

 

 

Qui Gon isn't allowed to use force push, etc.  Only saber fight.

As much as I loved that guy, shouldn't it have been Captain Phasma? It would have given her a really memorable scene and set her up for future films.

Captain Phasma was a bit of a disappointment in this movie. Hopefully something cool will happen with the character in the future.

If she can mud wrestle Ren, I'll be keen to watch.

 

 

 

I'm pretty fucking sure that Ren/Rey have a connection like the Solo twins in the EU.

George Lucas complains about the lack of originality in the new movie, says he felt like he sold his kids to white slavers. I thought the movie was bad, but I wouldn't go that far.

Since that phrase is apparently not well understood, judging by some of the media commentary I've seen -- white slavers are pimps, not actual slavers, which is probably worse. Think on that one for a moment -- if you liked the force awakens, what does that make you?

If you take his comments in context to other ones hes made over the last year it's clear that he resents that Disney threw out the treatment for the sequel trilogy he wrote. Him providing this treatment and creative input was part of the deal he made with them when he sold the franchise and I think he was surprised they decided change the direction. Since we don't know what his original treatment was its hard to say what Disney kept from it and what they didn't but apparently it was enough to upset Lucas.

He's since apologized for the comments and I get the impression he realized that wasn't the best way to express how he feels.

A man who pays and tips well.
