Re: Rise of Skywalkers reviews (Spoilers in this thread)

So, no spoilers: For someone who actually liked TLJ and doesn't enjoy rehashes of the OT or endless pandering to the fandom, on a scale of one to ten, how big a steaming sack of shit is this movie? I'm trying to decide if its worth putting myself through watching it. It's 'take a bottle of whiskey ...

Re: Rise of Skywalkers reviews (Spoilers in this thread)

It's fun for the most part...and then afterwards your brain starts to kick in and what ray245 and Vympel have said comes up.

The answer is probably dramatic licence.The other problem with a pure bubble-shield projection is that the shield would have to emitted under the ground.

Re: How did the AT AT's breach the shield

It occurs to me that there's not really a problem with the ground assault vs planetary shield scenario, if we view a planetary shield as a form of projected energy, materialising at a certain distance and arc from the generator. If the shield was protecting the airspace above the base of operations,...
