I’m not the biggest fan in the world, but I’m in the top 1%. I read the books, I played pretty much all of the games. I ran many campaigns of the pen and paper game. I love love love star wars. Read more

Was it less flawed than TFA tho? I feel like this one had way more things that I just like, either didn’t follow logically or just were stupid. Read more

Yup I really liked it. It pretty much takes the premise of TFA and somewhat the first trilogy and flips it. Instead of the gung ho stuff working out because reasons or jedi powers, people fall flat on their ass and pay the price for it. Read more

I’ve read nearly 3/4 of the EU and thought it was great. I’m just trying to pinpoint the type of person who hated it. Maybe I’m the hardcore oddball but there was WAY more ridiculous stuff in the EU than in the movie.

I can’t remember the last movie I saw that made me go “holy shit” as much as this did. The kamikaze sequence was just incredible, and taking out big bad Snow unceremoniously was just awesome. Read more

Did not expect the first top comments talking about how they hated the movie. Criticisms are great, art needs them, but god damn. Kind of reminds me when old fans hated the new Star Trek, if the movie isn’t made entirely for them, it’s apparently shit.

I had a feeling fans were gonna dislike it, because the entire theme of the movie is “Star Wars is for kids, the kids of today deserve their own Star Wars, we aren’t just going to shamelessly appeal to nostalgia anymore” Read more

Yeah, this movie was great. I feel like it was a real shout out to those who love Star Wars. Played the games, from the tabletop to the consoles/PC, read the books, deep dived every comic book...this was for us. I can’t get over how sweet this movie was! Rey and Kylo’s scenes were intense!

The Skywalker saga is coming to an end though, so a good time to open the Force out to others, regardless of their background, perhaps? Read more

I think he was telling the truth actually, mostly because if the last scene. The peasant boy is a nobody, who force pulls the broom to him and pretends it’s a lightsaber. The next generation of Jedi are nobodies.

I agree with much of what you say, but I really really liked that Rey’s parents were nobodies. It means the Force is more democratic, and isn’t purely a blue-blood royalty hereditary sort of thing. It’s time to move beyond the Skywalker family, perhaps

Funnily enough, I loved this movie for the exact same reasons you hated it, my dude

I don’t think the argument is really about whether or not he should, but whether the show wants us to think about it. I thought it did, for a second or two when it showed the faces of the soldiers who were being cut down, but I read it as Siede reads it: sometimes the show starts to do it, then backs away entirely.

Comics Frank Castle isn’t a terribly interesting character so we lucked out in having showrunners and an actor who wanted to do more with the concept.

These days, there have been so many takes on the Punisher that it’s kind of a choose your own adventure of head cannon for writers and fans. The Punisher who just rains down bullets with a skull shirt isn’t really the character that Marvel put out, and is more of a function of how he’s viewed by main characters when Read more
