1. Yeah, very true.
2. OK, but you totally can compare Alien to Star Wars.

So it wasn't Rey > Kylo. It was Kylo, after being shot by a rather powerful weapon, after going through another fight lost to Rey. Which is quite different from what you facetiously stated.

That wasn't much of a fight. I think Kylo should have been able to force push him into a rock in two seconds.

Apparently the sequel isn't even going to hide that subject allegorically. Glad I'm not the only one who saw that.

Unrealistic fight scene from politically correct (at least by then-prevailing standards) feel-good movie of my youth.

Did a billion people watch it? Having other examples of bad story telling in movie history isn't much of a point.

By the way when Rey and the ex-storm trooper went in their first space fight I already inwardly groaned. Ray and the stormtrooper were just too excellent at space fighting.

Not much of a point? Clearly I had no business posting it here, then.

Yup, I'm sure fighting doesn't tire people out, and wouldn't affect performance in any way.

And being shot shouldn't matter either right?

Give it up.

Finn wasn't a god damned janitor. He was a storm trooper, trained from birth, who had to do janitorial duty while a weapon was being built... Mostly for the comic relief, since he could have just been garrisoned there and still known nothing (nobody thought be was a nuclear engineer).

That's like calling the guy who mops the deck a janitor when he is really a full member of the navy who has to wash things when not fighting.

i know, I called him a janitor[trollface] because he had no buisness facing a force user this fight should be as long as Han Solo vs Vader I get it was done to set up Rey, but still I do not buy how Finn&Rey vs Kylo was done obviously.

Different movies. Can't compare them.

You're right. I hate women.

Edit: Seriously though, don't you think this fight made Kylo seem lame? Darth Vader seemed unbeatable throughout the entire series. If your lead character beats your lead villain in the first film of a trilogy, it's not a great start. Episode VIII really should include a training montage showing Kylo learning how to be a better swordsman.
