Re: Marvel fires Chuck Wendig to salve alt-reich

What I learned from this discussion: I'm a Republican or at least a part of "the Right". I call everyone who I disagree with deranged or a 12 yo. In USA it is not considered abnormal or inappropriate to regulary shout profanities and insults in public in front of hundreds of thousands of people. It'...

I think we all know that 'swearing and angry' aren't your standards for 'unhinged.' If it was a single outburst? Very inaprop...

Re: Marvel fires Chuck Wendig to salve alt-reich

If you think it's normal for an adult person to every day log in on a twitter account signed by their name and in front of hundreds of thousands of people scream profanities, insults, and occasionally tell people to kill themselves, I'm glad I don't live where you do. You just described the preside...

Couldn't have told you off the top of my head who he was before this, but I'm not seeing anything in those tweets I disagree with or would object to an employee saying on their own time.

Re: Solo release thread (spoilers)

A thing to consider is that Solo wasn't supposed to be the most expensive Star Wars movie, the budged got overinflated because they basically shot it twice.

I saw it yesterday. Helluva fun movie with good humor and some genuinely touching moments. Also since it pissed off a futurology blog I used to visit because it was "too SJW", I might just have to go see it again. My parents haven't seen it so I'll go with them. :twisted: The queen of SJW tweeted t...

Darth Maul is going to teach Kira the ropes... by training her since the film is completely vague and Darth Maul has 0% introduction or backstory. The exact training she is going to get is equally vague. That said, she has been in this organisation for years and met Darth Maul before since he knows...

Re: Solo release thread (spoilers)

Palpantine did not die by power reactor explosion, something very different and unexplained but certainly force related happened to him mere seconds after falling and long before the DS reactor was destroyed. And no, we have no idea where that pit went to (not from the movie anyway). If it was to t...

That's quite plausible; probably more plausible than him surviving without assistance for an extended period. Unfortunately, the part about him escaping via the trash disposal system was apparently listed in 'Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know'; and the Databank adds that Maul augmen...

When the fuck was this supposed to be? Maul was stuck on Malachor until the Rebels crew provided him a way out; when did he have time to hang around Dathomir doing crime lord shit between then and getting killed off?
Rebels found him on Malachor in 2 BBY, Solo takes place in 11 BBY.

Re: Solo release thread (spoilers)

Very solid movie, obviously not perfect, but very enjoyable, with likeable character and some nice twists, and a lot of more or less obscure references and cameos. It's good to have anthologies to look forward to between the inevitable disasters of episode IX and Johnson Trillogy. ...I just hope the...

Re: Counters to Hyperdrive Ramming

Yes, the Devastator just drops out and stops (or coasts quite slowly) while Rebel ships slam into it. The run-up is indeed crucial. Kyle Hill's Youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1M95njhovw) mentions Lorentzian contraction; basically the Raddus contracted to a fraction of its normal si...

Re: Orbital bombardments, planetary defenses, Death Stars, etc.

Yeah, Armada has plenty of Legends content. But I don't taking Rebels into consideration will get us anywhere. Single canon yadda yadda yadda, this is a Disney XDDDDD show with a tiny budget. Remember that in Rebels a single TIE Advanced destroyed a frigate, a single TIE Interceptor made CR-90 flee ...

Re: Star Wars: Rebels

With the destruction of the 1st Death Star and the subsequent fighting in the Mid Rim (which the Empire was seemingly winning by RotJ), it's quite possible that the Empire just never got round to retaking Lothal. It had bigger fish to fry. I agree. Palpatine was more concerned with replacing the De...

Re: Star Wars: Rebels

A signle destroyer is 40 000 - 50 000 people dead, hundreds of thousands died that day on Lothal.

But killing is alright as long as you do it with explosions. Or gravity.

Re: Star Wars: Rebels

Even in A Fools Hope Ezra is slashing stormtrooper weapons. About getting shot left and right, remember that in Rebels getting shot isn't as bad as you'd expect, they often show stormtroopers moving and breathing after meeting a blaster bolt.

It's hard to not be optimistic when you hear Filoni talk about Star Wars, he's my favourite to listen to. And then he pulls things like Rebels Season 4.

Yes, I want Rian Johnson fired, not because of financials, not because the reception of the movie, but because for me personally he proved to be a complete hack and I wish someone more talented took over instead.

Re: David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to direct new Star Wars series

If true, that might be a valid financial reason for Disney to replace him, but it is not in any way a measure of artistic quality. This is a flat-out appeal to popularity fallacy. I will also note that TLJ was the highest-grossing film of 2017, and that relative to other Star Wars films, according ...
