    Prequels had better space/vehicle combat scenes (except the speeder races or whatever they're called).

    I cared more about the Gungan Naboo battle than I did about the one at the end of Rogue One.

    TFA is the worst. Rogue One is better than the prequels.

    I made the mistake of seeing TFA on premiere day. I was hyped as fuck, although ready for disappointment. I was a massive Star Wars fan once. Fuck, Star Wars was my life for approximately 10 years. And i watched the whole thing with with a blank stare on my face. Kylo Ren is the only interesting part of TFA. As a deeply flawed villan, he's the only original thing they put in there. Ok, and BB-8 is cool, because he's cute. And i just can't handle cute shit. Everything else is rehashed. And the fact that the Rebellion still exists is the dumbest idea anyone could come up with. The prequels are bad, but they aren't this stupid. Ray is a shit character. Actually, there are no interesting characters in this moive at all. Finn is a Jar Jar replacement, but he has even less of an impact in the story than the hated Gungan. The X-Wing pilot guy? Totally forgettable. The orange alien woman? Annoying, unnecessary. Captain Phasma? A joke. Snoke? Meh. First Order Oberstgruppenführer? I don't even remeber that guy. Han's death scene has an emotional impact of a feather. It was handled terribly. The CGI was unimpressive, that orange alien woman actually looked terrible in IMAX. No space battles at all. The movie was a waste of my time and money. Yet i had to see it, i'd be ill if i haven't.

    Now i'm ill because i watched it...

    Okay, TFA is a better movie than the prequels. But it's a worse Star Wars movie. With a bit of imagination, you can take the prequel story, throw away the bad stuff, fix some plot holes and lazy writing, and you can have a great story in your mind. You can't do that with TFA, it's unsalvagable.

    The Rebellion existing and the First Order are Extended Universe things. I think they were decided many years ago, probably by George.

    I like Kylo Ren because of casting. The main problem of the movie is that the other main characters were not cast well, were wooden with lots of blank staring off into space, etc. Prequels had some good casting, except for Anakin...

    Not-Space battles were not cinematic enough. Given that just about everyone has wide screens these days, it's weird the movie did not effectively make use of them. The X-Wing fight in particular felt boxed into a small confined area.

    Han fighting and then later dying were both a joke.

    Orange alien didn't bother me. The cantina scene was one of the better ones in the movie.

    Opening battle in Revenge of the Sith was pretty tight tho.

    Um, what Extended Universe? All the "sequel" stuff i read before TFA dealt with the New Republic and Imperial Remnants (which later turned into all sorts of things). But who are the Rebels rebelling against in TFA? The New Republic? I understand they're not financed by the Republic, since they're even less powerful than in their glory days. I know some of this stuff is sort-of explained in the novelization, but that just doesn't work. And the explanation is't very good anyway if i remember correctly.

    I agree about the casting in both cases. And i agree that the not-space battles were totally underwhelming.

    Her forehead is bigger than the rest of her face. She looks like someone who is bald and wearing a wig, except the wig is pulled back too far on the forehead for comedic effect. I have a receding hairline and my hair reaches at the same level in the center as her hairline does. It's ridiculous.

    Well star wars diversity certainly has declined. We went from charming negro Billy Dee Wiliams to a downright nigger and a chink tranny.

    That fucking forehead!! Twice as big as mine and I'm balder than Baldur's bonce.

    When you compare the original trilogy with nu-Star Wars I'm loving how nu-SW is essentially showing the failings of other races/sexs, and thus actually doing one big thing - cementing that fact that white males do everything better than every other sex/race.

    Well the obvious thing is for her to be a Skywalker somehow. Leaked script is probably correct in that regard.

    Think about it, Disney loves fucking up but they can't fuck up this much. The series always has been about the Skywalkers.

    You mean she looks like jailbait?

    In RO the inclusiveness felt like it was there to market to different audiences...here it's looking more like an agenda. The only non-OT cast members left who are white males are bad guys.

    Still hoping Rey is a clone of Palpatine or something...

    Isn't jailbait usually more attractive?

    Script update:

    So I took the script to a UACC registered dealer who has been authenticating signatures for 30 years. He had several signed Star Wars items in the shop so he's authenticated Star Wars actors/actresses many times. He was surprised by what I brought in and agreed to authenticate it for free. He looked at each signature, comparing it to samples he has on file and concluded the signatures are REAL.

    However, he questions the authenticity of the script. His opinion is that someone was able to get all of the cast to sign the first page as just a sheet of paper with the logo printed on it and then attached it to the rest of the script because there's no way, he believes, they would be willing to sign a real TLJ script before the movie releases. I explained there were multiple copies and he said that makes it even more unusual. It could be at some convention someone got all their autographs or it could be that someone who worked on the set got them to sign the paper. He did read the first few pages of the script and remarked that if it's fake it's a damn good fake and someone really went all out to put it together. He also said he hopes it's real because "it's actually quite good." He didn't want to read anymore in the event it is real.

    The one wild card factor, however, that he cannot explain is the Tom Hardy signature as Hardy has never been confirmed, only rumored, to be in TLJ. It's unlikely that Tom Hardy would have agreed to add his signature to multiple pieces of paper with The Last Jedi on it, especially if the other cast had already signed it. We developed a theory that maybe the person who got the signatures got Hardy's signature on a blank piece of paper and the printed on that paper AFTER it was signed.

    If not that, then the only plausible theory is that Hardy is a member of the cast and it was someone who worked on the production who got the signatures.

    But after all this discussion another guy who co-owns the shop and is also UACC registered looked over the script and confirmed the signatures are legit, however, he said the Tom Hardy signature was sketchy. He showed me multiple samples and only one showed his signature close to how he signed it on the script.

    So who the fuck knows?
