1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    It's interesting that CREED isn't getting the same backlash that TFA is for using the same themes and basic story arc of the first movie in the series. The only reason I can think of is CREED while a a commercial success didn't enjoy the same hype and blockbuster power that the latest Star Wars film has. The more successful a mass marketed media product is the more internet neckbeard cynicism it enjoys. I.e. people feel "cool" being contrarian to popular things.

    Too bad it's not how it went in the movie.

    You are right. Because TFA didn't have a twenty minute prologue attached showing Chewbaca changing Ben's diapers and teaching him to ride a bike we can't assume it was hard for him to shoot the guy. The whole point of the comic was to drill down the emotional resonance of the scene and counter anyone questioning why he didn't shoot Ben in the head.

    I liked it. Film has flaws but it's good. Hit the right strings and reminded me of the feels from the original. I've always enjoyed the Rocky series so YMMV.

    No, it's just another example of you dopes putting a false gloss on the movie to try to make it better than it was.

    Chewbacca just lost his temper and shot without thinking or aiming carefully. It's actually pretty consistent with the impulsive way he acts in the other movies. Remember we're talking about the guy who couldn't resist the Ewok's bait in Return of Jedi...

    Yeah but I'm an emotionally weak person who can't handle seeing Rocky getting sick/old, and struggling to get up the philly steps no matter how symbolic it is.

    I don't think you understand the concept of "suspension of disbelief". Nobody here is saying "it's a bad movie because there's no such thing as the Force". Accepting the fictional premises of the story's universe is one thing. Having distracting inconsistencies or clunkers within the boundaries of that fictional world undermine the suspension of disbelief. It's the difference between good storytelling and bad storytelling.
    Way to blast that strawman with a Wookie crossbow, though.
