Your hot take needs to die. Chewie is best.Star Wars: A New Hope (Episode IV)
FINALLY on to the actual Star Wars movies! Y’all can watch Star Wars in whatever order you choose but I am very happy with how we have viewed them. I think it is important to the story to know the beginning first but I digress.
And we are back to the PowerPoint transitions that I missed oh so much from Solo & Rogue One.
I love R2D2. A lot. He is my second favorite character. Two things that he needs are Pew-Pews and hyper speed. Poor guy can’t defend himself and it super slow.
Oh yeah, and how can everyone understand R2D2???
Luke Skywalker acts just as childish as his freaking dad and he annoys me just as much as Anakin did.
Han shot first. Confirmed.
They did a great job re-creating the cantina at SWGE.
I feel like they are trying too hard to make Han and Leia happen. There really isn’t any spark between them. Han is just really aggressive. But ooooof to that Bro and Sis kiss. LOL.
I made @rteetz real angry when I was like “BUT WHERE DID OBI-WAN GOOOO?” I guess with the Force. Whatever that means. (I later find out what that means but at the time it as weird, okay?)
Imagine how Vader felt killing the guy who didn’t even have the balls to kill him in the first place. Just left him there without limbs and stuff. Big Yikes OWK.
Lots of pew pew scenes at the end and then BOOM. See ya later Death Star.
@croach asked me if I thought that Chewy deserved a medal. Hot take: Chewy is an annoying character so I didn’t even care that he didn’t get one.
Someone on Twitter had brought up the Jabba the Hutt scene and how he was a humanoid at first but then the scene was deleted from the OG trilogy and then added in later with CGI. It’s weird to clearly spot the CGI things they have added into these movies. I know they are old and technology has advanced so much, but I love the feel of them and think they should have just left them alone.
Brad found a cocktail called a “Greedo Mojito”. I don’t know what was in it, but it was tasty.
Truer words have never been spoken. I keep my VHS tapes of the original trilogy for just this reason, though I’ve read a better digital version was created and exists online.I know they are old and technology has advanced so much, but I love the feel of them and think they should have just left them alone.
"Show me again the power of the darkness. And I will finish what you started, Grandfather." Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens. I mean I had to quote that. I'm such a Star Wars nerd.I kind of feel bad not finishing what I started.
I seriously love how C-3PO asks him what he's doing and R2 straight up tells him that he's serving drinks. I built a droid with my nephew in August and it was great fun.I require a bar-cart R2-D2 and I am going to make one this summer with @rteetz at Disneyland.
*Star Wars nerd alert here.* Luke killing Vader out of anger is what could drive him to the Dark Side. I think Return of the Jedi is a reverse mirror of sorts with Revenge of the Sith. Anakin and Luke face extremely similar choices in both movies and make different choices. Luke choosing not to give in to anger and hatred is what allowed him to save his father.Okay so, if the point of the Jedi is to take down the Sith. And they keep continually getting into these lightsaber fights. What exactly is the point of these fights if it is not to kill the other person? Specifically in reference to this movie, Luke and Vader are fighting and Palpy is like “Kill your father and join me.” But couldn’t Luke just be like I’m killing both of y’all and taking down the Empire, bye. Why would Luke killing Vader automatically make him go to the Dark Side?
They have not shared that yet as far as I know.Speaking of Darth’s helmet, how does that get saved? Because they don’t show that.
Not really. You already know the most relevant parts of their backstory from the original trilogy. There are some books set 2-3 years after Return of the Jedi that deal with Ben Solo being born, but I do not know if they go into Han and Leia's backstory at that time. We know they got married and were still married in The Force Awakens. It was Ben Solo turning to the dark side that essentially separated them.I need to know the backstory of Han and Leia’s relationship. Is there a book I can read?
BB-8 was one of my favorite new characters before seeing the movie. Mostly because I didn't want any spoilers and they told us virtually nothing in the marketing so I liked the ball droid.First things, first: I didn’t want to like Rey or BB-8. Like ever, at all.
*Star Wars nerd alert* There was a book set before The Force Awakens that explained that Rey already knew how to pilot a ship. As far as fixing things, she did spend years scavenging old Imperial equipment so it's not a stretch to think she would know how to repair things. *End Star Wars nerd alert* That said, the movie does not show her piloting a ship until the Falcon this so I can understand why some people have issues with that.One thing I hated about Rey was that she couldn’t fail at anything. Oh the Millennium Falcon is having problems? Not only can she fix it but she can finish Han Solo’s sentences???? Nah.
