I would feel terrible if I ruined it for someone back in the day. It truly was one of the best twists out there.
I'm glad I skimmed over it because I might actually download it on my ipad and play it.

Every Star Wars fans that likes games should play KOTOR.

It's been a really long time since I played that game, but I honestly don't remember being surprised about the reveal. Maybe a friend played and told me about it before, or maybe I wasn't following the story that closely.

I wasn't *****ing about it. I seriously was never into SW games before, but with yall harping about how good it was and me seeing that it could be played on the ipad I was considering it. I did skim it and didn't absorb the info because I didn't really know what yall were talking about.

I appreciate that Faraci tells it like he sees it but I disagree with a bunch. Anecdotal, but the death resonated with me.

Honestly, I think Faraci is projecting his absent father stuff. How is JJ supposed to combat someone projecting Han Solo as an ideal father figure for the past 30 years. It is not out of left field to think that something so horrible happened that it broke Han. That a self described scoundrel gave it a go as a husband and father at 30ish after a War but after losing a kid and a close friend decided to go back to doing the only thing he was ever good at. I've seen better men run. To me JJ made the right choice. Isn't the fun so far of speculating about Ep VIII been about what happened at the Jedi Academy that turned everything to crap?

I agree with Alias in that there's just too many constraints to tell the story that Faraci prefers when TFA is not meant to be about the End of Han's Journey. The only thing I'm with Faraci on is seeing Driver's face for the first time at this scene would've been amazing. And good luck understanding why the internet latches on to TR-8R and not this or that.

On KOTOR again, is there anything better than going to war with HK-47 and Canderous Ordo at your side?

I tried playing KOTOR a few weeks ago for the first time. Couldn't get into it. Especially while I also continue to play SWG EMU.

I disagree pretty strongly with that whole Han Solo article, btw.

Could the movie has used an extra beat or two to let us mourn Han? Absolutely. Doesn't mean the death itself didn't resonate. The author is projecting their feeling on everyone else.

And the younger generation is more interested in the new characters than the death of an old one? That is a good sign of great new characters more than anything else.

I think most hardcore fans probably made their peace with Han's death before even going in. Most fans suspected it at the very least.

HK47 and Canderous were awesome, but rolling in with 2 other lightsaber wielding force users like Bastila, Jolee and/or Juhani was pretty OP

Found this video. The music and Hayden C suck, but it has bootlegged clips from the movie.

So the original script had Poe dying in the tie fighter crash.

And Snoke is a former admiral in the imperial navy?

It was on one of those click bait sites of "Ten Predictions for the Next Star Wars Movie". Claimed Snokes identity was in the EU. I haven't see that before so I thought it might be crap.

If someone is alleging that Snoke's identity was/is in the EU, it's wishful thinking that he is Thrawn, probably (calling him an imperial admiral).

Edit: hmm, they are saying it's revealed in one of the new canon included as part of Journey to the Force Awakens. That gives it a little more credibility, but I wish they said which story.

Double edit: Actually, some of the stuff included in Journey is not listed as official canon, so who knows.

I think I'm up on all of the canon and I don't think Snoke has been mentioned at all.

Very cool.
Where'd he get that surplus Death Star control panel and how did he retrofit it to make music rather than destroy planets?

I still think this movie is a really bad idea, especially if these are the finalists. Would love to be proven wrong, though...

Can you give reasons why? Is it due to the preconceived assumptions of what the movie would be like?

Dave Franco?
