While watching that final battle I was struck by how awful it was, especially compared to the battle over Scarif in Rogue One. The expectation was that the mainline series would culminate in the most epic of confrontations. Instead, the whole thing reeked of budget cuts and last minute rewrites.
It’s sad then that I felt nothing when the fleet arrived. Like, oh...ships are here. Ok, who are they? Where the fuck were they? Why now? Because plot I suppose. I guess I’m supposed to feel elation that the cavalry’s here (mini-hooray). Doesn’t matter anyway because big badaboom hand-lightning!
I’m with you on that. An X-Wing HAD trouble flying through it, an MC90 Star Cruiser? Um...no. Also, the two largest fleets in existence and not a single one shoots at the other. Most disappointing and boring Star Wars space battle in history. When TPM has a better space battle, you done goofed.
We’re hardly going to take advice from Evil Lincoln.
This is a dumb take from you. And you’re the king of dumb takes. There’s nothing to indicate Katie didn’t read or investigate the character, she just didn’t really understand the appeal. That’s allowed. Not everyone is you.
No that’d actually be pretty damn exploitative.
