    I really need to get around to KOTOR II, I've only bought it four or five times...

    I did amend it somewhat to better line up.

    Snoke was Luke's Force projection all along!

    (it started off as a prank that went horribly wrong)

    Really? I didn't notice; I read it verbatim Kreia and Sion (and then in Luke and Kylo's voices, for fun). What parts did you amend?

    Darth Sion: After all that has happened, still you live. You are difficult to kill.
    Kreia: For one as limited as you, perhaps. To have fallen so far and learned nothing, that is your failure.
    Sion: The failure is yours. No longer do your whispers crawl within my skull, no longer do we suffer beneath teachings that weaken us. And now you run in search of the Jedi... They are all dead, save one. And one broken Jedi cannot stop the darkness which is to come.
    Kreia: Perhaps... We shall see.

    Though Kylo and Sion resemble one another in more than one respect.

    Didn't stop @Sinrebirth from working out a passable way to work out everything.

    The supposed big bad Snoke went out like a chump too, just like supposed big bad Darth "i can eat planets, but my boss fight is embarrassingly easy" Nihilus.

    It fits!!

    Rey: So, uh, who was he anyway?
    Kylo: A man. Nothing more.

    Here's a controversial point of view.

    Snoke was never anyone truly powerful. That Kylo fell and the Jedi were wiped out is not a testament to his power and strength but to Luke's weakness and indolence.

    We may not know Snoke's identity, but at least we know Ben Solo was this guy

    "The movie should not have ended until Han was either killed by Boba Fett or Jabba or rescued by Lando Calrissian or Chewbacca, the former, preferably."

    Damn that's ice cold

    Having lived though both, the comparisons to TESB are ludicrous. I recall standing in lines for TESB and RotJ for almost the entire day quite a few days after its release. People were doing victory dances as we watched them leave before us with people in the line begging them not to say anything. I walked into TLJ minutes before it started and sat down prime theater seat location. People looked dejected on the way out.

    Talking about if Vader was lying to Luke was a sign of how good the movie was, not a negative review. If Kylo turns out to be lying, then that is just horrible screenwriting.

    I like that we're still pretending that TLJ was actually divisive compared to the prequels.

    I do see alot of people throwing around that TLJ is the most controversial and divisive Star Wars film of all time. I will wait for end of the sequel trilogy before I can really say anything like that. I can't see the divisiveness of the prequels being topped by another Star Wars film, but who knows?

    I don't think this contradicts anything I was saying. Luke's attempt to restore the Jedi is important backstory, yes. But it's an attempt. A failed attempt. Instead of telling a story about Luke Skywalker restoring the Jedi, the ST just says, "Yeah, he tried and it didn't work" and then moves on to rehashing the single-Jedi-trained-by-hermit-Jedi-survivor-mentor formula. Was the New Republic reestablished? Yes, I said as much. But the ST blew it up before it could have any role in the story so that it could go back to rehashing the Rebellion-on-the-run formula. However you feel about those creative decisions (you don't have to hate them), I think it's inarguable that the ST blew off those story threads in favor of doing other things. Those other things being suspiciously similar to the things the OT already did.

    Honestly, the ST feels almost like watching 22 Jump Street or something. A parody of sequels resetting themselves so they can do what worked before all over again.

    I'm just baffled that people do victory dances coming out of movies

    I started watching The Leftovers recently, and just got through the International Assassin episode. I couldn't help but feel like that sort of thing is what Master Codebreaker typically does with his days.

    Speaking of Canto Bight characters, I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else yet, but thinking it over now... the spherical slot machines are based on Vincent from The Black Hole, aren't they?
