For the record, I was being facetious with the "objectively" part. I'm referencing TCTTS and others who claim their opinion as fact on the matter of the prequels.

All your points are valid, but I'll say this. It's easy to say the only thing wrong with ROTJ are the Ewoks, but that is a major part of the movie. Half the movie takes place on Endor.

Honestly the original ending of Luke walking off into the sunset at the end, like a Western, would've been amazing. Bittersweet would've been the more appropriate tone, imo.

the post office should release stamps of lucas with "skinny, idealistic george" and "fat, horrible george" like they did for elvis.

Depends on how technical you want to get. No, I seriously he doubt he was a character who went by a different name and/or appeared in earlier Star Wars movies/shows/books. That said, I could see him being part of a flashback in TFA, in which he's been retconned into the lore. Like, obvious example, but maybe he was a kid on Endor when the Rebels won or something like that (which would explain how he got Vader's helmet). But yes, as currently/officially presented as of now, Kylo Ren is a completely new character.
Ok thanks, would be pretty interesting to see that kind of flashback.

I always saw that bit as a bluff, they're feigning where they're striking next. Problem is they know their adversary so well that the feigns don't fool anyone.

Aside: My work situation is completely hopeless right now. Being 9 days out, Star Wars is consuming so much space in my head that it's hard to get anything done.

Luckily work slows way down during the holidays.

I always thought it was the force let them glimpse the immediate future, that is why they are such talented warriors. And that is what makes Jedi battles so great; they are constantly trying to change the immediate future to beat their opponent.

Is that wrong?

Jedi have a paranormal instinct... that guardian angel whispering for them to do something or other. Not just a "spider sense" but sometimes broader than that, but not really to the extent you're describing.

The canon example that immediately jumps to mind is Kanan, living in hiding and never using any of his abilities, is in a tight spot and thinks he may have to pull his lightsaber. Some instinct tells him not to, and he trusts it, which pays off.

Another example is Anakin and Obi-Wan standing outside Padme's door, when they both suddenly lurch up because they suddenly know she's in danger.

So really, it's just little glimpses and insights.

That makes sense.

I also liked the allusionary elements of your Canon Kanaan sentences.

Ok, time to stop posting articles and toys. Let's have some safe, fun discussion to distract ourselves.

Suggested topics:

- Why doesn't Uncle Owen recognize 3PO, who lived with them for years?
- Did Mace really beat Palps?
- ROTS is objectively better than ROTJ. Thoughts?

Open to other suggestions. I'll hang up and listen.

- Why didn't Obi Wan recognize R2-D2 and C3PO when they were introduced? T
- Why did Darth Vader choke the Rebel commander with his bare hands when he could have just done it from a distance?
- Did the guy that talked back to Vader on the Death Star and got choked out not know Vader had the force? Was it his first day on the job?
- Why did it take 10 seconds to fire the death star earlier in the movie, yet takes 2 minutes when Luke makes his run?

- Why am I single??? Oh wait...

It was out of firing range of Yavin, it took that long to get within range.

From a distance, the guy looked like Vader's friend, even though they were at war.

A black stormtrooper? Stop fooling around!



Treebeard? Is that you?



Why is C3PO's arm red? Has it always been red?

That takes me back to the midnight screening at Sundance Square in Fort Worth. It was nuts. No one, including myself, could admit that the movie was a letdown.

Personally, it's pretty rare that I don't like a movie, especially one that I've made the effort of going to the theater for, immediately after seeing it. I was just like those people after TPM. It's only after time that I can look back and realize a movie sucks. Confirmation bias, I guess.
