So, we're almost halfway into the movie and, uh, what exactly is making her want to get back to the Tatooine Mark II anyway? Is this because Skywalker was actually there all along and the Force tells her to? Because in the 20-30 minutes we spent there, it failed to offer a compelling reason. I get they want to draw parallels with Luke's desire to escape, but, it's not going too well so far.

She was abandoned as a child and is still waiting for her parents to return. Are you paying attention?

You mean, the vision thing? When I wrote this post, that vision didn't occur yet: I was referring to when Han Solo offers her to stay on as second mate, and she says she would rather go back.

Now that this is finished, though, can we actually, truly talk about how nonsensical that scavenging part is? She goes out every day to get the tiniest pieces off these huge ships, and often all it gets her is barely enough food to eat? How does she ever manage to refuel at these rates, then? Really, it makes no sense that she's basically a loner with that kind of economy. When people actually have to live like that in RL, they all band up in pretty large cooperatives because otherwise they would never pay off expenses like fuel off off the scraps they make.

You are such a joke.

Quite defensive over a "5/10 film" now, are we?
goodbye!

I must also say that, obviously, my expectations for the actual Rogue One now approach rock bottom. Sure, Edwards is a great director and is better than Abrams, but honestly, direction was already good enough in many (though by no means all) scenes here. Script is still far greater problem, and (to appropriate a Diego stereotype), I still haven't heard a single good line of dialogue in any of the trailers.

On the other hand, though, I must be grateful to Rogue One somewhat, as its existence allowed me to make this awesome comment on the latest trailer, a comment which had obviously found some pretty receptive audience:

Like, this is definitely the most successful I've been on YouTube in terms of likes (though I have some GOT comments that got a bit less likes but more replies.) As shallow as it is, I feel like I must ask: did anyone try our form of trolling on YouTube, and how successful they were with it?

Quite defensive over a "5/10 film" now, are we?

Yeah, I didn't even like the movie, and I know these are a stupid bunch of complaints. Just like how I didn't care for Super 8 and still thought the train derailment complaint was stupid. Or how even when I didn't like Interstellar, I thought the "blight" complaint was stupid. Or how even though I hated Knight of Cups, I still know that saying someone's "fucked for life" because they enjoyed it is stupid. Or--

I could go on. The point is that if you're going to be a nitpicking fussbudget, at least be consistent. Hey, you know, the Death Star in Episode IV is a pretty unfeasible project. They sunk quadrillions of dollars into that thing. And can you imagine the PR disaster for your regime when you blow up a peaceful planet? A New Hope: 2/10.

There are so, so many things wrong with The Farce Awakens, but by nitpicking pointless stuff like this, you diminish all complaints about the film. It's seriously pointless. Neville could have brought up the blatant plot point recycling, or the silliness of Finn's dialogue in the cantina scene, or anything else. But no. He decided to devote his time to talking about how Kylo Ren should have facial scarring. Lol.

What's the point of saying things you and others have already stated and restated many times early in the year? We all know of plot point recycling, and I alluded to it once with "Death Star Mk III" comment. I say the privilege of watching this so late after the others is that I get to say things they did not.

Oh damn, looks like I miscounted big time.  I only checked the comment once and completely forgot about it.

It's still at +204, but here it is, along with proof that it's me logged into the account:

So...it's pretty good, I guess.  Sadly, I decided to venture onto the IMDB boards and immediately, right in the thread title, someone spoiled the movie for me.  Apparently (If you don't want to be spoiled, do not click):
