Generations is entertaining, but my God, the awful writing that lets an old light cruiser take out the Federation flagship absolutely infuriates me. Read more

That’s why I love watching First Time Flippers. At the beginning every flipper is like “We are budgeting for a 2 month flip” and in the end it always takes 5 times longer to complete. And the best part is the recap at the end which usually states “Drake and Heather have gotten several inquiries but after 7 months the Read more

The Rise Of Skywalker’s weakest story point is the concept that rey is a palpatine because it doesn’t really make sense. First, ol’ palpy is a megalomaniac determined to live forever, he’s not going to have kids unless he thinks he can use them. Second, he knows that the a sith apprentice will eventually try to betray Read more

In my eyes, that just underscores how impossible a Utopia is, because it *requires* that *everyone* be willing to fight for it, even if doing so goes against the self-interest of certain individuals. Read more

Even more sense when you remember, the Narada from Star Trek was a Romulan mining ship enhanced by Borg tech Nero stole from the Tal Shiar in the wake of the destruction of Romulus and that the Tal Shiar had been experimenting with Borg tech for a while to enhance Romulan ships.

My favorite thing about Flip or Flop is that neither of the hosts know how to be on TV 100% of the time, but their expertise is inverted. Tarek is good in the talking head segments but sounds like he’s been lobotomized in the candid shots, and Christina acts semi-normal in a California white girl way in the candids Read more

The OEM brakes on Silky (my ‘79 Delta 88 Royale Brougham Diesel) faded noticably with the OEM driveline in even moderately spirited backroad driving in hilly terrain. They were borderline terrifying once we tripled the wheel horsepower.

Counter point. You can put 15s on nearly any 90s northstar Cadillac. And they made 300hp. No change to the factory brakes required.

She is not just a Force-sensitive nobody caught up in the eddies of galactic change, but a spirit bound in the Force through Ben Solo/Kylo Ren to one of the most dominant bloodlines of major galactic events, half of a long-prophecized dyad.” Read more

The biggest mistake was not running with that, where they can both be Force users and even be more or less light and dark, but they don’t need to be and there is a lot of support that the monk Jedi of the Prequels and OT weren’t/aren’t the only types of Jedi. Ignoring the open-ended approach and the broom kid really Read more

In the loosest sense, yes. And so poorly presented that they require essays like this to make sense of.

Yoda’s energizing reminder to his own old student—that the past, good and bad, victory and failure, must be acknowledged in its entirety and learned from before it can truly be moved on from—is the message at The Last Jedi’s heart. Read more

I also respect, but respectfully disagree with, this take; I agree with everything that you’re saying on the surface, but I think taking the name Skywalker, after looking at her adopted “parents” in the form of the children of Anakin Skywalker, was just as much her honoring Leia as it was Luke. I felt like that was a Read more

“The serpentine belt had a crack in it and needed replacing, the coolant was dirty and needed flushing, ditto with the brake fluid, the fuel injectors also needed cleaning, as did the throttle body. I was told that everything except the brake flush was needed to pass inspection,” Read more
