I will say I thought I was going to hate the Aftermath books. But the first one has been better than I thought. Listening to it as an audiobook helps.

So I am going to try and keep an open mind about this series.

The second and third book are solid, but the first is a chore to read due to the writer's style. All three are great audiobooks, with the first being significantly better in that format.

I am on the third book. The first two could have been condensed into one.

I couldn't stand Daniel Jose Older's Last Shot. It was a Lando/Solo novel. Very poorly written with characters and statements thrown in just to be edgy. My last straw was when the author wrote that Lando was going to have "wup an ass".

i see he is involved in this process. I hope an editor is as well.

I made a passing post about that earlier. The idea of a wookie, whose species lives on the edge of anger all the time, becoming a jedi seems really dangerous.

There is a wookie Padawan in clone wars

One of the younglings in Clone Wars was a wookiee, so it's definitely not the first time in canon that it's happened

I know, and it happened in the old EU. I think even Lucas stepped in at some point to stop or limit that, but I don't know that for a fact.

Checked back and I don't think this was posted before. Somehow hadn't seen this until now.

So awesome.

The more that comes out about this movie, the angrier I get.

It's almost like Palpatine being a clone was a pretty major plot point that should have been explained in the movie...

I'm starting to think you didn't even like the movie.

Ok, that makes sense to me in a series of Force Ghosts and other **** that have happened.

How does something that major not bother you?

It's absolutely lazy filmmaking. Taking shortcuts for someone else to figure out.

I guess I just assumed he was a clone in the first place because his original body fell into a giant pit of a space station that exploded into eleventy billion pieces 60 seconds later. Not sure what other explanation there would have been, especially if you had read a lot of the EU stuff - which I understand not everyone has, but at least something like Dark Empire which has the Emperor reborn as a clone.

I understand you're upset. You don't understand my being OK with it, just like I don't understand your thinking ROTS is better than ROTJ. Different times in our lives, man.

Then you probably shouldn't call people out for their complaints.

A movie shouldn't need people to read comics/books to get the full story. It shouldn't have to be explained by a tweet that a planet was supposed to be Mustafar, where the Final Order came from, etc.

How was I calling you out? Do they still have sarcasm in your town?

It's a sarcastic jab, just like most of your replies to any posts that in any way criticize the movie.

I'd direct you towards your "positive" thread that you started. This here is for discussions about the movie, which may contain negative opinions.

The lava was kind of a big hint.

Question. Could you tell it was Mustafar in TROS when you watched it? And if so, would love to know how.

Maybe you should take your own advice, pal. You've been jabbing at me non-stop and you know it. There's only so much you can do that before it's clear you have a problem. You can at least admit to it rather than trying to play everything off as a harmless joke.

I also use sarcastic jabs on the Aggie football, nfl, NBA, baseball, general, and Houston boards. It's almost like it's part of my online persona.

I don't get the sense he's out to get you BES. If anything, most of the time, the dog pile seems to fall on Muck. It's a Star Wars thread. No one should take it too seriously.

And yet I make a joke about something, or I post a meme you don't like, and you jump on me for being insensitive. Like you've done multiple times.

If you want to dish that out, then don't call people out when they make jokes.

Anyway, don't want to further derail. Carry on.
