The point I understand where Benecio picked up on the plan is when they got out of hyperspace and were on the radio with Poe. Poe quickly radios Finn and Rose and mentions they abandoned the main ship and are in in transports heading for the nearby planet.

I missed that exchange.  The kids want to see it again so I'll watch for it this time.

Why did the janitor twins stay on their mission then if they knew the plan had changed?  The only way that plan would have worked was if they quickly made a hyperjump in the main ship.


I'm struggling to remember myself.  :dunno


janitor twins LOL  :duckhunt

Boy howdy.  Starts off epic.

Erm, seeing as how it's preparing to vaporize our fleet, mind if WE all ---fudgesicle--- off and you catch up later? We know X-Wings have hyperspace capability after all.

Took the wife the other night since she wanted to see it in the theater.
I did not hate it as much as I feared but I guess that isn't saying much.
The only thing I have to add to this thread is that Snoke's "Red Room" had a huge Flash Gordon vibe for me. Expected to hear Queen at any time:
Flash a-ah
Savior of the Universe
Flash a-ah
He'll save every one of us

Yeah, I plan to go see it again on Sunday.

Iím glad you brought that up, Snokeís throne room looks so foreign to me, it didnít look like anything that really fit in the Star Wars universe, if that makes sense.

Especially someone so young with magic wizard powers. I hate to think what I would have acted like if I had those powers at a young age. Or now for that matter.

We know how someone [could] act. And his name was Paul. I identify.

Meh, you can tear apart anything like that.  I spent a lot of time thinking, "I'm too old for Star Wars" both during the movie and reading that link.

I agree you can tear anything apart like that. I did that with Empire strikes back a few pages ago. Still a hilarious link.  :dunno

And for the record I still really enjoyed The Last Jedi, flaws and all. Went to see it twice.

about he whole vacuum in space thing...
I think it should be obvious to anyone that knows Star Wars Lei is of the Skywalker bloodline.
They showed a lot of force powers we have never seen before in this movie. I think it should
be obvious she did not perish in the vacuum of space because she created a force shield around herself.
She has always had sort of denial thing going on there but in extreme cases she has used her powers. 
She could not stand to loose her brother in ESB so she gave in and used her powers to hone in on him.
In this movie she was put in a fight or flight situation so once again her inner force kicked in.
I really am ashamed they have not honed in more on Lei and her force powers and now they have waited to
long and its too late :-[

Actually, they did that in Guardians of the Galaxy, and I said, 'horseshit'. And then I went and looked it up, and found that it takes a while to freeze and decompress - several minutes before there's real damage. That's if you don't expunge your lungs before going out there. Otherwise you'll likely loose them.

The whole Force thing. It's totally imaginary. It's up to the bearer as to what they can manifest. None of the writers are smart enough for that. Though neither was Herbert.

We finally finished our Star Wars marathon today with EP6, 7 at home & then 8 in the theater.  You are correct about the exchange between Poe and Finn/Rose.  That's where Benecio picks up on the plan.   :cheers:


The point I understand where Benecio picked up on the plan is when they got out of hyperspace and were on the radio with Poe. Poe quickly radios Finn and Rose and mentions they abandoned the main ship and are in in transports heading for the nearby planet.

I didn't mind it. Star Wars was never John Steinbeck.

Is it just me, or did I see an homage to Hardware Wars in there?

Whew, glad I wasn't the only person who thought that.  Was it the thing that looked like a clothes iron?  My daughter and I both stopped, looked at each other, and went "Hardware Wars!!!

Just found an interview... and it's actually a Hardware Wars reference.  Confirmed!

The new Star Wars was a Dumpster Fire.

 Only saw it because I was handed a free ticket.

 Boring. 
 Lame Acting  (except Mark Hammil)
 Clearly full of Propaganda,  from Male Hating Feminists Slants,  to the PORgK  Vegan Hammering.

 Physics Fails.  (Bombs fall in space?!)  Ugg.
 Mary-Sue  "Cardboard"   "lead" ?!
 Lame "Bad Guy"... from bad look,  to bad dialog / acting.
 Lame Bad-Guy Lair.   Had to be the most Boring and Basic looking set In all of StarWars... and possibly,  in any big budget film to date.
 Poor quality "Fighting" scenes.
 No Emotional Content.

 The worst, is of course the Lead woman.  Shes a worse actor than Pierce Brosnan as Bond.  Pierce is almost completely "Monotone" in range
and expression... but this girl, is almost No-Tone.   It actually seems like she is either a psychopath, or is not a real human being...  as in.. 
being completely AI generated.

 Which makes me wonder... if JJ's films are AI-Generated in some form,  from a supercomputers  "Formula".   As from what we see,
his films tend to use similar parts and pieces... with little more than re-arranging elements.  In star wars... it was pretty pathetic to make
a non-mobile planet killer / galaxy killer.   Its just too absurd.   Everything about the first film,  was Way over the top.  Especially Mary-Sue,
who could out-force everyone... without a single day of training or experience.  Lame.

 The film didnt do well here in the USA... and it completely Tanked in China. 
 Radical  SWJ  /  Feminazi  excuses were Boundless!

 The failure was more enjoyable than all of  prequels and sequels combined...  and then some!

  :lol

 Disney wont see another Dime from my pocket... and any SJW or Feminists directors / leadership... will also be Ignored.
Its time to stop paying and rewarding Demons, to Radicalize our Youth.   Let alone, have to suffer though their Talent-less Hackery + Quackery.

Oof.  I do agree with him about Daisy Ridley, though.  She looks like she could be Natalie Portmanís grand daughter, which is appropriate, but seems unredeeming otherwise.
