Re: SUPERTHREAD: 2020 United States Elections

There was literally no reason to take a shot at Sanders here other than to troll Sanders supporters because you're petty and vindictive. Perhaps, I could be shitting on Bernie Sanders without giving a fuck what you or any of his other braindead fans think about it. Which is exactly what happens, in...

Re: Will the next Guardians of the Galaxy film address Star Lord's fuckup on Titan?

Gandalf has rather absolutist views. He says Tony should have died in Civil War ignoring that the man has a lot of positive qualities (repeatedly willing to die or endanger himself to save others, showing genuine care towards his friends and earth) or that things aren’t cut and dry (Wanda would have...

Re: Will the next Guardians of the Galaxy film address Star Lord's fuckup on Titan?

Pretty much what was in the title. The group of people on Titan had pretty much beaten Thanos until Star Lord decided to punch Thanos for a bit. For a split second Spiderman has the gauntlet until Thanos grabs it back. Thanos went on to turn half of the universe to dust. I know MCU has a history of...

Jesus. We had our differences and argued harshly at times (to the point where he banned me on facebook) but he was also a nice guy (he helped me back when I was a dumb 15 year old starting out here) and I'll always remember that.

Re: Should the Son of Mortis have been the Big Bad of the Sequel Trilogy?

Part of what makes it work in my opinion is that if the Son succeeds it's basically game over. The Galaxy burns and he lords over the remains as a god emperor. For a grand finale to the Skywalker saga it's perfect.

Re: Should the Son of Mortis have been the Big Bad of the Sequel Trilogy?

Kefka is a psychopath so it’s natural he’d get bored.

Some people just like power (Palpatine would probably like throwing his weight around and making others miserable). Hell Sauron’s like that.

What you call "bigger stakes" I call "jumping the shark". Its literally the same problem, conceptually speaking, as having Palpatine show up with a fleet full of Star Destroyers with superlasers. The stakes are so big that most of the audience will tune out to how ridiculous it is, and even those w...

We've had human villains, and tyrants who want to take over. Dark Gods are another matter entirely and the Son has a fairly unique personality compared to Palpatine (for starters he truly mourns his family, he has a reason to be interested in Rey and Kylo and he actually DOES see himself as benevole...

Re: Jim Butcher has finally finished Peace Talks (Dresden Files). Release date coming soon.

A little annoyed we didn't actually see the peace talks before Eithniu and Corb fucked it all up. The cliffhanger was also annoying and I'm wondering why Ivy didn't react to Harry given how heartbroken she is when faced with his death. Still it did a good job setting up for the battle with Eithniu ...

That doesn’t make sense. Obi Wan and Ashoka were also there and they remember everything. Its a shared vision. What doesn't make sense about that?

Re: Should the Son of Mortis have been the Big Bad of the Sequel Trilogy?

Anakin did a lot of evil shit as well but was still redeemable in the end. I think the issue is execution. The treatment I saw had the Son planned from the beginning and he gets a lot of buildup before the final battle. It also creates real honest to god stakes where it really feels like everything ...

Re: Should the Son of Mortis have been the Big Bad of the Sequel Trilogy?

Given that Rian Johnson and J J Abrams we’re operating on different wavelengths I think a more consistent director through all would have resulted in a more coherent story.

I think the Son could have worked with buildup, and that having Kylo die a villain might be too bleak

They sound fucking ridiculous. So no. Have you, y'know, watched the episodes before passing judgement?
