echoing, almost exactly, how Obi-Wan's mentor *and* Luke's mentor met their respective endsYaya wrote:I loved the part where Han and Leia are separated and their son impales Han with a light saber and tosses him down the shaft

At least when R2 shut himself down, he didn't orphan two children like somebody *else* who "lost the will to live".Yaya wrote: and R2D2 gets depressed about THAT and becomes catatonic and shuts himself down. Yeah, LOVED all that.

How can you possibly expect somebody who's spent their whole life scavenging and repairing machinery to be able to fly some kind of old vehicle? That'd be like you or I sitting in a car we'd never driven before and being able to handle it. Unthinkable.Yaya wrote: Also, loved the way Rey can fly the Millennium Falcon by herself without a copilot quite well having never been in the thing
If only the movie had shown her to be very adept at combat and using other melee weapons, such as disarming a trained-from-birth Stormtrooper with a stick. Or if they'd shown Kylo Ren get shot in the chest with a weapon that was instant death to anybody else, putting him in a very vulnerable position.Yaya wrote: and how she can best Kylo Ren in single light saber combat without ever having swung the thing.
I dunno, but I liked it. Not as much as I enjoyed the Last Jedi, but here we are.Yaya wrote: BRILLIANT!!!!
