Why is it self involved to go "oh man a person died. i didn't know them but they had an impact on others and, man it sucks they are gone"?

Lots about TFA was expository and weird, but the main purpose of the movie was to reboot the franchise- which it did successfully while keeping older fans simultaneously pissed/ecstatic. I think that's what we're dealing with for any upcoming films as well as R1. I'll acknowledge/bitch about all their shortcomings, but I'll see every GD'ed one. Multiple times.

But for Leia- I felt like she'd have a bigger part in XIII, and would get some really badass moments. Fortunately they finished filming in July, so they'll definitely milk all her footage for better or worse. I don't think they'd do gross human CGI like R1 in a saga movie. I hope. They will eventually, sure, but I think they'll be super careful to be tasteful with this farewell.

I think we're posting in the wrong thread, but hey I mentioned R1 twice.

I dunno. Most of it just seems like self involved piling-on.


It can read that way, sure, but intention's hard to discern and people are a little kooky on the subject of death.

Why, there's this one guy who totally turned to the dark side when he thought he lost Natalie Portman. Totes relatable.

To stay on topic, apparently the CGI Tarkin and Leia were hella expensive so I guess worries about everybody being replaced with CGI or super intelligent cyborgs is a bit premature.

Nah I get it. Some people definitely are just like, "oh man, a person died" but some people totally post on Facebook and make it more about them.

Personally, with all the deaths this year, I really only cared about Bowie and Carrie Fisher as a enjoy them.

25 minutes too long but still a great war flick on par with The Dirty Dozen. Blew TFA away imo.

So, finally saw it and really enjoyed it. The CGI characters weren't too bad in 3D (probably cause everyone was all fuzzy anyway).

But, has the empire never heard of encrypted drives? Oh, and a single hot swap enclosure conveniently located, outdoors and unsecured at the top of the tower? Sorry, the computer nerd in me can't let that pass without comment...

I made mention of this to the wife, the Empire seems to have a thing with putting important switches and computer stuff in some pretty precarious places. :P

I really liked the space battles, the plot was sloppy in the first half but the second half was really good. It doesn't work as a standalone film but that is ok, I enjoy fan service.

Must be a Disney thing. Just like how Hydra stores the targeting chips in a large, easily accessible location on the Helicarriers

Unsecured? The entire planet was a military base, covered in a shield, protected by an armada of ships. That tower (which still had a vault for the data, after all) was basically a safe inside a safe.
