Fallout 76, a bad experience.

So I went into Fallout 76 knowing how bad everyone said it was and to be honest I didn't have that experience. i played it for a couple of hours with my uncle and we had a good time. It wasn't a full fallout game by any means, but I hadn't paid full price and looking at it as just a sandbox to have fun with someone it was a fun thing to do. Run around murder things and maybe build up my settlement, but today, only my second time on the game things started going down hill.
I was level 4, just out of the gate, hadn't even finished tutorial quests they give you to learn about the game and these 2 guys about 10 levels higher than me started attacking me. At first it was just annoying, they were hitting me but it was doing nothing because I was below the level where I could engage in PVP. but then I levelled up, still not out of the tutorials and they started being able to hurt me, sure it wasn't a lot, but they just wouldn't stop. they followed us around for the entire rest of the game attacking and then killing us.
there's a system they have in the game that is supposed to prevent this sort of griefing and that is that if people attack you and don't respond they kill you and they get a bounty on your head. but there are 2 things this doesn't take into account; until you respond this takes a long time to do so you're basically stuck not playing the game because you have a bunch of ass holes griefing you slowly to death, thus destroying your fun
and 2, there has to be players on the server that want to go after criminal players. on this server world clearly there was not because We got killed a couple of times and they just kept finding us on the map and keep on coming for us.

This really feels like a flaw in the game to me. maybe because I don't come from a DayZ background, maybe cos I never really picked up on Ark survival, but I went into this game to play with my friend and that experience ended up not happening because these two guys wouldn't let us. not only that but when they killed me they stole resources off me, so it actively reversed my game progression up to that point, and that's a really bad feeling when you've barely started the game.
It didn't even give us the option of changing server worlds, We could have quit and come back, but by that point we're basically done playing.

For me this is a very poorly designed system, it relies too much of the assumption that other people will want to stop the griefers, and doesn't take into account the idea that people might buy the game 2 months after release.

We will likely pick it up again, because we like playing co-op enough to give it a second shot, but if I'd been playing this single player I would be uninstalling the game now.

Star Wars Rogue One: Comments

Star Wars Rogue One, comments while watching. Go!
1. this is the 4th film chronologically, eighth film made but not a numbered episode.
2.why no scrolling text? what do you think this is? some kind of non star wars film?
3. see that robot has a communicator built into it.
4. Jyn is told that she needs to escape so she grabs the cuddly toys. Priorities...
5. that is a family that likes their blue milk.
6. why didn't they park closer? that is a LONG way to march, and it gives the guy they're hunting way too much opportunity to snipe their leader and kill him.
7. what do they know about the force?
8. it's a good thing Galen has no gun, he could have killed Krennic
9. Lyra shoulda shot him. she had every chance. Shoot first gloat later.
10. A significant portion of her head was visible when she was watching.
11. it's a good thing saw Gerrera's armour is already kitted out to carry that oxygen mask around.
12. he just straight up shot his mate there. I thought the rebellion were supposed to be the nice ones. all sunshine and rainbows. I guess this is the dark side of the moon here.
13. that is a big jedi statue.
14. that robot is the best.
15. I feel like they would call themselves the alliance not the rebels. Alliance intelligence rather than Rebel intelligence.
16. the robot reminds me of the one from hitchhikers guide.
17. saw is pretty messed up. the pilot hasn't even spoken yet and he's already shouting lies.
18. he doesn't know what saw gerrera looks like how come he recognises him now.
19. ugh sgi tarkin... I genuinely thought they'd just keep him facing the other way, make him more of a mysterious element.
20. Saw Gerrera is gonna be real embarrassed when he realises he just sent a legitimate new recruit with tons of useful information insane.
21. oh look its those two criminals, I wonder if we'll ever see them again.
22. man those rebels are dangerous, very reckless. don't they care about the unaffiliated that they hurt? I guess not. They didn't seem to give a damn about that child.
23. she's hitting their blaster 'proof' armour with a stick...
24. thye guardians of the crystals are pretty rubbish. also not that useful in the city away from the crystal caves.
25. these really are the dregs of the rebels.
26. I mean, I get what saw was doing leaving her behind, but leaving her behind on a deserted planet with only a knife? thats... that's a little harsh.
27. "It's not a problem if you don't look up." - I think you're oversimplifying the issue miss Jyn.
28. "we need a statement not a manifesto." Translation: "we can't blow up a whole planet, not until Episode 4 so that film gets the impact."
29. The pilot must have a mind of steel to survive that monster with sanity intact.
30. if they're only using 1 weapons generator why is it still firing all 6 beams?
31. "there's a problem on the horizon; there's no horizon."
32. What bullshit is this that saw doesn't want to run anymore? like your not making a stand your literally just dying. Nobody you want to know will know. and nobody will give a crap.
33. making the jump to lightspeed in the atmosphere cannot be safe. you could easily hit any of those pieces of rubble at light speed.
34. it was a little stick in the side of the holo projector why didn't she just grab it?! I know the city was exploding, but still.
35. So I checked and the blind guy isn't a jedi so how does he see the force moving around cassian?
36. I can't tell if Galen should want to let the scientists die or not.
37. Cassian should snip Krennic.
38. people keep telling him he'll never win. they give him plenty of time to listen as well.
39. She probably shouldn't have run out and yelled father in front of everyone.
40. Nope. how does a blind man shoot down a spaceship? I don't care how good the force is. He's not a jedi.
41. how crap are a tie fighters shields that a crossbow destroyed it?
42. the way Galen's leg is bent back does not look safe.
43. the not-jedi asian dudes arrived at a timely moment.
44. I wouldn't mind learning more about Cassian's past. he's way more interesting than Jyn.
45. "You can't talk your way around this." is what you say when you know you're actually in the wrong but are still too mad to say anything.
46. There's a lot of lava on this world, I hope nobody lays down near the rivers. Liable to get burned.
47. It's a damn good thing those guards around vader's bacta tube are loyal, he is a sitting duck without his arms and legs on.
48. "careful not to choke on your aspirations director" he says choking the director. That's pun master Vader there folks, proving he did learn something from Obi Wan.
49. Jyn goes from 'go away and leave me alone' to 'Rebellions are built on hope' in 3.25 seconds. those rebels have been a bad influence on her.
50. those fish people are aggressive.
51. "Jyn. I'll be there for you. Cassian said I had to."
52. it just sounds insincere when she says it.
53. "Your friend. The Jedi." "Yes, he served me well in the clone wars. Since then he has lived in hiding. I will send for him." I wonder who he means. Probably Mace Windu
54. do you think this plan is where they got the plan for the endor battle.
55. k-2 really is the best.
56. why did Lyra have a lightsaber crystal for a necklace? was she a jedi?
57. it's a good thing that all the empire uses skinny white guys. This deception would not have gone far if they'd sent out a big black dude for Cassian the tiny to impersonate.
58.I don't feel like Jyn and the 2 monk dudes have been through enough together for one to call her his little sister.
59. why did Jyn just endanger their mission by lowering her visor and revealing her face? was it so that we knew it was her? cos I don't feel like we're that stupid.
60. I know that corridor its on the jubilee line. Canada water I think.
61. that gun of Baze's must be either really old or really powerful to require that external power source he's carrying around.
62. why do they insist on giving the blind man a gun?
63. that crossbow of Chirrut’s blew up a tie fighter but it doesn’t even knock back the storm trooper who it hit.
64. what are R2 and 3PO doing standing around I know for a fact that they're on the Raddus' ship with Leia.
65. its nice that they used gold and red leaders footage from episode 4.
66. gotta love the way that At.At just shrugs off the rocket launcher attack.
67. "All rebel frequencies are blocked!" use imperial frequencies?
68. It's nice to see what the rebels can do against At-ats when they're not hindered by a world that's too cold for x-wings.
69. what were all those ties waiting for? why are they only now attacking?
70. the mon calamari bridge seems really dangerous with all those windows around the captain.
71. well there goes red 5. I guess we now know why there was an opening in the rebel red team for luke.
72. Why on earth did he walk around that pilar like that, getting the cable stuck like that?
73. Bye bye K-2 saddest moment in the movie.
74. I feel like there was a reason that the hard drives were in closed off rooms, like maybe they needed a specialised environment. the static could destroy the data. that would be a rubbish ending, huh? they get all the way to send it but its been corrupted.
75. Why does she just happen to have a hard drive carrying belt?
76. So here's what I would have liked to learn about Chirrut and Baze; I wanted to learn that Baze, not Chirrut was once a Jedi and Chirrut was his padawan (or something). After order 66 Baze lost all faith in the force and in his despair his connection diminished/vanished. His padawan, however never lost faith and spent the rest of their time together trying to rekindle his old masters belief and only in his death after doing the impossible, walking to that com tower and turning on the master switch does his faith return. Then he destroys all those stormies using his force senses and his gun.
77. what purpose could possibly be served by that door that opens and closes like that?
78. I'm not sure that's exactly how physics works. if a small thing pushes a big thing into a big thing I feel like the small things force wouldn't be enough to tear the big thing in half. it'd be like me using 1 finger to push your fist into another fist and expecting it to cause serious damage to the other fist, no?
79. reset antenna alignment? but I swear that's how it was before anyone started fighting. that's just what the antennae was like.
80. every member of the erso family has told Krennic he will lose.
81. I hope they have backups of all the information on scarif, but at the same time if they do then why did they need to spend all that effort infiltrating? why not go for an easier base?
82. is the death star just bad at aiming or did it shoot miles out to sea for dramatic effect?
83. the ship with the plans should probably have been the first out not the last.
84. You know, I wish just one member of Rogue one had survived. Doesn't need to even be an important one, the pilot would have done, or that indian kid, but it woulda been nice if 1 of them had gotten to episode 4.
85. okay even if this whole film was awful if it had this one scene where Vader fights through the ship its worth it. the only real time you see his skills.
86. I don't like that they put leia's CGI face in this. it's so unnecessary.
And that is the end of rogue one. so far it has the least complaints from me. I like this film but I see what people mean when they talk about how they don't like how much of a departure from the original movies it is. the main star wars films with the exception of Empire, are nice fun fantastical adventures, then you watch this film and it's a world war 2 documentary.
Great film though. And now we are done with Comments.

Star Wars Episode 7: Comments

Star wars Episode 7 comments. I have seen episode 8 but will not be commenting on it or on Solo for the foreseeable future, maybe one day though.. Next week will be the last one, Rogue One and then we are done!
1. Episode 7 is the only film that was named correctly on release. It is the 7th movie, it was made 7th, but sadly because of rogue one it is now 8th chronologically.
2. Luke has vanished. Typical Jedi.
3. 'skywalker, the last jedi' I wonder what episode 8 will be about.
4. See 'general organa' makes sense. she's leading troops. makes way more sense than princess.
5. If she has the support of the Republic then is it a resistance or just the republic army?
6. If Leia really wanted to find luke she should have turned R2 on.
7. Who is the old ally? do we have any frame of reference for this guy? was he in one of the old films? Shoulda made it Wedge Antilles.
8. why are they called the first order? is this part of that list of orders that Order 66 came from?
9. Stormtrooper masks look like donald duck.
10. R2 jr is fat.
11. How can any of them understand BB8 ? even Luke had to use a translator.
12. What happened to the machinery that lifted BB8 up by his head? it sort of disappeared and started pushing him from below.
13. this is a future world and they're using little leather string bags to hold data drives...
14. Here we have the beginning of the film were the rebellion- I mean resistance agent hands the plans- I mean map over to her droid R2- I mean BB8 before getting captured by the movie's sith apprentice Darth Vader- I mean Kylo ren and then tortured for information. It's so different from the original.
15. Woulda been a very different film if Poe had killed that storm trooper.
16. okay. people say Kylo Ren is a bitch and yes sometimes, but Vader could never hold a person in place unable to move while simultaneously holding a blaster bolt in mid shot for an entire conversation.
17. I assume that stormtrooper blasters have almost infinite ammo because otherwise that was really a waste of shots, blowing up that wrecked x-wing.
18. good thing Poe didn't take his favorite black x-wing after what just happened.
19. Oh hey it's the only black guy in this era of star wars!
20. And here we have our protagonist, a young person who lives on a desert planet with no real knowledge of her parents and who chafes at the restrictions the people who lead her place upon her. I'm not sure which protagonist I just described.
21. I know that star destroyers not going to just turn on but I'm still cringing the way Rey's just stood inside the booster rocket.
22. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
23. Oh look a Jawa- I mean random alien just found our information carrying droid and is trying to abduct it, but down worry our protagonist Luke- I mean Rey just acquired him from the jawas- tido.
24. Here's another way Kylo ren is actually more powerful than Vader; He just pulled the information he needed from Poe. I guess Maybe Leia was just stronger than Poe.
25. didn't a pair of characters in Episode 4 crash land on a desert world from an imperial death star and then get separated?
26. The Bromance is real!
27. Could you imagine if you told someone your name and they said 'What? Well I ain't using it.' and made up a new name for you? dick move Poe. Dick Move.
28. Bill weasleys gotten very severe since we last saw him.
29. well that kind of ends that argument.
30. that armour must be super hot in the desert. I guess it might have air con.
31. how did Poe leave his jacket behind?
32. what is it with the black guys in this movie series stealing the white guys clothes? First Lando now Rey.
33. Surprisingly normal clothes under the storm trooper armour.
34. that was a solid punch to the face Rey just took.
35. that moment when you and your friends droid's eye meet from across the room.
36. she and BB-8 just beat on a black man for no real reason, without asking the story. typical.
37. I'm not the one who chased you down with a stick! - he has a point.
38. Stop Taking My Hand!
39. How did she learn to fly? My understanding is she's never left the planet, she's spent her whole time there salvaging to stay alive. How'd she learn to fly?
40. The garbage will do.
41. What happens if the tool BB-8 wants to use is in a compartment underneath it?
42. Since they're flying low it makes more sense to me for him to be in the turret on top of the ship.
43. how is it that this universe is so advanced they've invented space travel but their spaceship targeting systems is made in what looks like MS-dos?
44. And this is the moment that Rey decides to try a Crazy Ivan!
45. I mean, yes Kylo Ren's anger is scary. But it could be worse. remember what happened when people gave Vader bad news like that. force choke. death. Kylo's a step up. At least I dont think Kylo killed him.
46. Our protagonist Luke- I mean Rey just returned the droid with the plans, R2- I mean BB-8 to the one expected to take care of it and is now reluctant to take the droid to the rebel base on Alderaan- I mean the resistance base in the Illenium System.
47. Welcome back Han and Chewie!
48. okay now, I want you to pay special attention to the damage Chewie does with his bowcaster (the blaster)
49. Frigging Parsecs.
50. chewies looking good. not a single grey hair.
51. "What was the second time?"
52. I can't help but laugh whenever I see the rathtars they remind me of the pervy monster from FF
53. every other person the rathtars ate, btu Fin they just cary off. seems a bit convenient.
54. why does blasting door controls seem to do exactly what the blaster wants?
55. I feel like this reveal that Han solo is Kylo Ren's father is premature and underwhelming. Imagine, if you will, that we waited until the bridge scene.
56. Poor Rey, just wanted some praise.
57. Jeez, any time a Jedi Master trains an apprentice that wipes out the whole order they just disappear and become hermits. Get a new tune already, jeez.
58. Han never wondered. He didn't believe, and had never heard of it. then he'd heard of it and he didn't believe. Then he was proven right, he believed and he knew about it. He never wondered. He's too confident for that.
59. the worlds of Star Wars are very strange. All the planets seem to have 1 climate throughout. you get a forest world, a snow world, a desert world. No mixed climates etc...
60. that droid looks like it's made out of Rey's speeder.
61. sounds like the cantina band got a new song.
62. Kylo Ren is kind of like the polar opposite of Luke and Anakin. where they were light side that felt a pull to the dark that they wanted to avoid, Ren is a dark side that feels a pull to the light that he wants to avoid.
63. there's a line here where she asks han who the girl is. it almost seems like they know who rey's parents are.
64. Hearing voices is a sign of madness.
65. BB-8 climbing down the stairs is super cute.
66. That didn't go exactly as the old lady expected, but what did she expect after such a scary vision?
67. if the galaxy wasn't united against the First Order before they used Starkiller base they certainly will be after. the republic didn't want people to know they supported the resistance? well now they have every reason to support them.
68. How did they transform 1 huge beam into 5 separate beams that hit 5 planets perfectly.
69. Finn says that it was the republic. are you telling me that 100% of the republic was on those 5 planets?
70. How did BB-8 climb up the stairs?
71. yes it is a good question last time we saw that lightsaber it was falling with a severed hand into cloud city.
72. I mean... it might be for the best destroying that statue. it's pretty arrogant and pompous to have a statue of yourself.
73. Rey looks at the blaster like she didn't know it would do that.
74. BB-8 is pretty quick to abandon people.
75. I'd like to make sure at this point everyone is paying attention to how much damage the Bowcaster Chewie uses is doing.
76. I get that the lightsaber is a weapon, but it's not one he's used to. telling him 'you have one' is kind of a dick move since that's clearly not what he was asking for.
77. How come Poe is the only one that's allowed a custom coloured X-wing?
78. this whole section reminds me of a computer game cgi animation where they are just trying to show off how powerful the main character is just before returning to the regular game and you can't do any of that stuff.
79. Bromance continues.
80. Kylo shows more of his skills here where he holds her in place with her arm behind her back and reads her mind before knocking her unconscious with a click of the fingers. Vader couldn't do most of that.
81. The wings of that carrier ship just don't look right.
82. Leia has not aged nearly as well as han.
83. Oh hey I didn't recognise 3-po because of the red arm. I'm glad they said it was him.
84. if Finn didn't realise it was Poe Dameron flying then why on earth was he rushing out there?
85. the Bromance expands.
86. Chewie with the doctor is great.
87. how is it that Luke's droid has all the information they need but they don't? surely they'd download it's maps first?
88. "Princes'" translation: "bitches."
89. It is very unlikely R2 will have the rest of the map in the backup data. Yeah super unlikely.
90. I really wish they didn't have all of this explanation of their failings with Kylo Ren. Maybe talk about how they lost their son, but not about how it's Kylo Ren. It would have made much more of an impact if it all happened on that bridge.
91. Oh man he's going to take off his mask, I wonder what he looks like? Super scarred? super deformed? super attractive maybe as a contrast to historical sith?
92. Oh... Okay... I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting under that mask but... well it wasn't that.
93. I really wish they'd waited until the bridge with Han Solo to take the mask off for the first time. much bigger impact.
94. "You know I can take whatever I want." Whoa kylo that sounded really rapey. Cool your jets.
95. imagine this whole scene where he's trying to break into her mind without any of the audio. it would just be weird.
96. how rubbish is any rebellion/resistance Leia is involved in that whenever they always get tracked back to their base?
97. How does Rey have any idea what she can do with the force? Anakin needed to be taught, Luke needed to be taught. Why is it that she just knows how to force suggest. She doesn't even know that's a possibility. At least the others knew what the possibilities were, they saw others doing it.
98. those 2 storm troopers are the smartest in the whole movie.
99. would the starkiller base ever be able to fire again after this shot? they use up the whole sun which would basically destroy the entire system throwing the planets into complete disarray, btu beyond that, the weapon has no power source and it's no station like the death star, can it move? I'm not sure it can.
100. Why did they call Han 'major'?
101. the amount of work it would take to build that starkiller would be more than could be done in a human life span and it's only been 30 years since Episode 6.
102. that line from Leia 'if you see our son, bring him home' is why he dies.
103. for such an old ship that's always on the edge of falling apart it can't half take a few knocks.
104. oooooh Darth vader- I mean Kylo ren just felt his old master- I mean father Obi Wan- I mean Han solo's presence.
105. that was not a quiet shot. How did nobody hear it.
106. I love how everyone in movies trying to stealth does the weird constipated crouch walk.
107. I assume that when Rey climbs into the wall she climbs out somewhere else.
108. After all of those big trailers making Phasma look epic she went out like a punk.
109. what if Han hadn't got the shields down? were they just going back and forth around the area waiting for the shields to go down?
110. why did Rey never think to use the elevator? I guess cos there were no ships out there.
111. Rey must be super cold out there in her Jakku clothes.
112. hope you're all still paying attention to how powerful the bowcaster is.
113. but HOW does the girl know her stuff? is all this present imperial tech entirely based on old pre new republic star destroyer tech?
114. What was the better idea chewie had? I don't speak walking carpet!
115. i hope they have gloves. climbing that frozen metal ladder might cause frostbite.
116. This is where they should have revealed that Kylo ren was Hans son. this is where they should have taken off his mask for the first time. It would have had so much more impact. taking away his monstrousness and making him human just before the final fight.
117. that said I would probably be comparing it to Luke and Vader on the bridge thing on cloud city.
118. yeah right there, imagine that line 'the face of my son' was the reveal. then get an actor that looks like Han.
119. How did the lightsaber go from sideways aiming away from both of them to aiming forwards towards him?
120. Here's where the protagonist watches her brand new mentor die and cries about the guy she met about a day before.
121. Leia never learned to be a Jedi, but she still felt Han lose his presence.
122. Okay, here's why I've been reminding you to look at how powerful the bowcaster is. It's been throwing storm troopers around, fully armed troopers thrown back several meters. killed instantly. But then it hits kylo ren and not only does it not kill him, it doesn't even throw him back and he still fights 2 people after. People say that Kylo ren sucks because he loses to 2 people who never fought with light sabers before. But remember he was shot in the gut buy that ridiculously powerful weapon.
123. Why would Finn throw his preferred weapon away just before a fight?
124. I always thought Anakin/luke's lightsaber looked uncomfortable to hold.
125. why when Kylo was trying to force pull the lightsaber did he dodge out of the way when it came towards him, like he wasn't expecting it?
126. Now it's time for Luke- I mean Poe to fly down the trench of the Death star- I mean Starkiller base to destroy the whole thing in 1 attack just as they are prepared to fire on the rebellion- I mean Resistance base.
127. You also need to remember that Kylo didn't want to kill Rey, He was trying to turn her to take her to Snoak or to get her to learn from him. She could go all out and kill him, he couldn't.
128. How does she know to close her eyes and meditate for Lightsaber training?
129. How does that work?
130. It's very polite of him to wait for her to be ready.
131. She seemed way too angry in that fight for a Jedi.
132. considering how much of the area was destroyed where Finn was left seems pretty unharmed.
133. Leia's never met Rey before but they're hugging like they're age old friends and the only ones who give a crap about Han. Rey only met him yesterday and he was kinda a dick.
134. nobody even though to hug Chewie.
135. Oh NOW you wake up R2... oh wait... R2 Awakened...R2 is the force!
136. How is it R2 has exactly everything except the bit they have? it's almost as if it was planned that he would show them at a specific time.
137. Why does Rey get the Millenium Falcon and the wookie? She barely knew him. they could have taken any ship to find luke but they took the fastest ship in the fleet!
138. Oh hey there's 3-po. I can tell now cos he has 2 gold arms.
139. I feel like that should have been the end, where rey and chewie fly off into hyperspace, then save the other stuff for the next movie, when she first arrives. or maybe do it in a post credits scene? but not at the end of this film, it just drags it on a bit long and ruins the successful tone from the end of the fight.
140. How is R2 gonna get up all those stairs? rocket boots?
141. I maintain that luke was peeing off the side of the cliff when we found him.
142. this bit where they just stare at each other is one of the most awkward things in star wars. It goes on for 50 seconds. 33 of that she's holding her arm out with a pretty weighty looking lightsaber in hand. Have you ever stared silently at someone for 50 seconds without looking away? it feels like a long time. go ahead, do it now. And add to that holding a 4kg weight in front of you for 30 seconds, arm straight... not fun.
143. do you think he was wondering if she found his hand as well?
144. he just looks so grumpy.
145. this is the only movie that's credits music is so mellow. I miss the excitement.

We also have Star Wars Episode 6

1. Episode 6, the 7th chronologically and 3rd to be made.

2. why did Vader arrive on that star destroyer I wonder. he has his own super star destroyer that he usually uses is my understanding.

3. someone probably should have told the commander when Lord Vader's shuttle left hyperspace, not waited for his ship to arrive on the death star.

4. Darth Vader, from hunter of Jedi to building manager.

5. Why is it that the builder of the first death star was all kitted out in nice high level imp gear but this one is just wearing identical clothing to other officers.

6. I feel like this scene is supposed to have translation subtitles but they forgot them.

7. Luke looks like a priest.

8. okay, so here is proof right here that robots in the SW universe feel pain, why else would they be torturing them? what is the purpose of giving a droid pain receptors?

9. where did Anakin get all those languages to teach 3-PO? or did that come later?

10. of all of the scenes that they added to the movies this one with the random musical number is the absolute least necessary and least welcome. what purpose does this serve? Other to detract from the bit where the girl gets dropped in the hole and eaten.

11. I never noticed before but that twilek has her boobs out. what rating is this film did you say?

12. So I'd like to point out here that Leia left the rebellion, the big galaxy saving organization that she was leading, to go save her boyfriend. that does not seem like the responsible thing to do.

13. She is not very good at stealth.

14. Wearing that mask constantly must be really stuffy.

15. maybe it woulda been smarter to transport him out quietly while people were sleeping and let solo out in a safer environment, one with doctors.

16. I feel like Jabba wouldn't want to risk having to fight the rebel alliance. he's just a smuggler, they're a military and now he has 2 of their generals captive.

17. I can't tell, when the guard stumble back are they clutching their throats cos Luke's choking them or are they saluting?

18. that outfit of Leia's does not look comfortable.

19. that must be really embarrassing for Leia being almost naked like that in front of her brother.

20. shame luke doesn't consider using his force persuade on the rancor, it's probably pretty weak minded.

21. Why did he throw a rock at the button instead of using force push? I guess there's no evidence that he actually CAN use force push, only pull.

22. that poor guy, look killed his puppy.

23. the person who would get the most enjoyment out of Leia's outfit is the only one who cannot see. oh irony.

24. them banthas are on their way to the sarlacc pit. A bantha loves a good execution in the morning.

25. some of these new additions to the movie like the sarlacc simply feel like Lucas had no faith in his original film, like he spent 20 years feeling like nobody could like it, despite its popularity.

26. slight alteration in the script; when luke is standing there with his hand in the air waiting for the light saber Boba Fett shoots him. the end.

27. after all this time being a mysterious badass bounty hunter and Boba goes out like a punk.

28. Leia's gotta be damn strong to strangle him to death through all that fat.

29. the blind guys probably not the best one to be saving Lando.

30. that was a damn good shot. if Luke's hand wasn't made of metal it would have been an incapacitating shot.

31. and that folks is why alcohol is bad. they shoot one end of the ship and the chain reaction from all the booze blows up the whole ship.

32. 'an old friend' must literally be referring to his age because if you think about it he was only training with him for a week, if that, and it's been at most a couple months since they met.

33. its impressive that the Emperor looks older here than in the movies considering the order of the creation and considering its the same actor.

34. maybe if you'd lived on a world with healthcare it wouldn't be so bad, Yoda.

35. no other jedi was forced to confront a full on sith lord to stop being a padawan! this seems very unreasonable of Yoda.

36. I love how Yoda tries to avoid the question.

37. gotta say, killing jedi does mean for a real easy body clean up.

38. From a certain point of view.

39. Everything that Obi Wan is saying is TECHNICALLY true, but not exactly.

40. this whole section about Luke having a sister feels like it should be a big reveal moment, but it's handed over like 'oh btw here's info you should know.'

41. it's sad to know that all the other coloured mon calamari were killed before this movie. I'm assuming that's why there were different coloured ones in rogue one, but they all look identical in this one.

42. I feel like Solo is a bad choice of general to do the strike team. He's the best pilot not the best soldier. Also Leia's a weird choice to go on a mission like this. she's a leader not an operative.

43. The millennium Falcon should really be crewed by 7. pilot, copilot, weapons officer, navigation, 2 gunners and an engineer (or an astromech would work) I wonder if he has the full crew with him.

44. they got very close for people trying to keep their distance.

45. there really is no reason they should bring 3-po. and he's not exactly high camo.

46. the way the 2 more speeder troopers were just watching waiting makes me laugh.

47. when you turn and there's a giant tree stump about to blow you up maybe turn instead of screaming for 5 seconds.

48. they travelled a long way on those speeders, that's gonna be a hell of a hike back.

49. oh look its a low budget wookie.

50. food, the best way to an alien creatures heart.

51. That little ewok, Wicket W. Warwick, is the 11 year old Warwick Davis. I thought you ought to know.

52. Do you think that the emperor actually knew about the small rebel force or do you think he just wanted to be mysterious.

53. Chewbacca is supposed to be intelligent. he should be able to tell a trap when he sees one. or at least not want to eat things just lying around.

54. R2, king of 'oh ffs, I'll do it.

55. what were the ewoks waiting for? they captured them but didn't show up until they freed themselves.

56. someone must have brought a protocol droid to the forest moon of endor and they thought it was a god some time in the past.

57. People think the Ewoks are all cute and happy and friendly but remember they were originally going to eat the film's protagonists.

58. some deity, he gives orders and they just ignore him.

59. I don't blame R2 for tasing them.

60. that's Warwick davis 'humping' Han solo's leg there.

 61. Han solo's kinda a douche.

62. Leia cannot remember her real mother. and I don't think Leia would know what Luke means by 'real mother'. Do you think that Leia even knew that she was adopted.

63. 'i felt his presence.' the line that spawned a thousand Christmas jokes.

64. "You'll learn to use it as I have." No she won't, count on that.

65. 'somehow I've always known' then why did you make out with your brother?

66. I wonder where Luke got the Kyber crystal for his lightsaber.

67. i like how that giant satellite dish has a bunch of smaller satellite dishes.

68. What is the purpose of the secret entrance on the other side of the ridge?

69. is it me or does the emperor's throne room look like it's just a storage room that they haven't finished clearing out?

70. I can't tell if The Emperor is a stereotype or if this is why that is a stereotype.

71. it's a shame that none of the rebels have radios, if they did they could have waited for Han to tell them that the shield was down.

72. Itsh a Trap!

73. that was a nice religious war you just started R2. get the ewoks god in danger and they attack.

74. is it just me or should the arrows of a bunch of savages just bounce off the armour designer to stop low impact blaster shots?

75. smart move this time; make the guns work on the battlestation first, not last.

76. how did the blast go through the shield? is it a one way shield?

77. Han shows no emotion or care that R2 basically just died.

78. poor nameless ewok, we hardly... we didn't remotely know thee.

79. how do the ewoks know how to pilot that thing? wtf?

80. Hey! Luke has the high ground! Awesome he just won i think.

81. Nevermind, Vader is wise to that trick now, he removed the high ground.

82. they have blasters, the ewoks have tiny people sized spears. just kill them all.

83. vader threatening Leia and getting his arm cut off is a prime example of 'talk shit, get hit.'

84. it wasn't exactly an even exchange though. Ani lost a robo hand he'd already lost, Luke lost his actual hand.

85. When I was a kid because I was scared of Empire strikes back and didn't watch it much I thought that when he cut off Vader's hand it had somehow fused to his wrist.

86. That's a big explosion for the amount of charges they placed.

87. This is a weird statement; I assume Anakin had his penis burned off and has no ability to have more kids, otherwise they would have made a little vader army, right?

88. it IS impressive how they manage to make Vader look so emotive despite that mask.

89. it was always the lightning in Luke's teeth that made me cringe most.

90. I wonder if Vader's dying because of the electricity, or because the Emperor was using Darth plagueis' life saving force magic to keep him alive.

91. in the first movie they had to shoot down a tiny exhaust vent, in this movie you can take a whole ship down.

92. how does luke know that the removal of the mask will kill him?

93. I swear laser fire just came from a place on the falcon that there were no guns.

94. she's super ambiguous about that whole loving luke thing, like Han is supposed to know that they're siblings. 'obviously I love him' how is he supposed to know you mean sisterly love?

95. I feel like Luke would have removed the vader gear before the funeral. a symbol that when he died and is now being cremated it is as anakin, not vader.

96. I don't know what all these cities are so happy about, they still have a ton of imperial leaders and armies that are in control, just cos the death stars gone and so is the emperor doesn't mean you can relax.

97. the ewok/rebellion party is one of the most awkward things in the history of movies

98. the pilots should really find some place to put their helmets.

99. in episode 3 they make it very clear you need special training to do the return from the dead ghost thing. but Anakin just does it. weird.

100. I absolutely hate the fact that they put in Hayden Christensen's Anakin in as the ghost at the end. He absolutely would not look like that,, he was 30 years older. I get putting a more light side version, but what they did originally was perfect. he doesn't get younger!



That is the end of the original trilogy.

I still have one or 2 that I've done so stay tuned.
