    My gods, it's coming to something when EA (fercryinoutloud) can make a post-Endor game-trailer that in itself is more compelling than 3 (count 'em) billion-dollar SkyWalker-saga movies from the House of Mouse...
    Hello indeed. The above notwithstanding, looks like we'll be renewing our D+ subscription in another month or two... :bounce:

    My issue with any attempts to set anything really military in SW in Canon post-Endor is that the war ended within five years. Gone were the Imperial successor wars and decades of action of the EU. Now there's just an unreasonably brief fight followed by peace. Pretty dull.

    There's more freedom in smaller stories like the Mandalorian, as long as they avoid having other established characters like Ahsoka, Rex, Bo Katan, etc. take over the spotlight. Having too many paths cross makes the galaxy feel tiny.

    Based on the trailer for season two, having Mando meet Ahsoka at least makes sense.

    Ezra too, maybe. Ahsoka and Sabine went to find Ezra post-Endor. But I think this might be doubtful. There's been no material about that search yet. I'd be surprised if they finally reveal info during The Mandalorian.

    now , this guy playing Kylo Ren / Ben Solo wouldn't be much noticed in the Black Sea region , not the hair / eye colour thing but the nose . Like build up you know , but nothing like people of the area and the country would agree as "a nose" , let alone "the nose" ... Yes , one of those r16 posts again , which some do not understand , some do ignore , some do their best to surpress (though not exactly here) and some just abhor to link , because they would have spend an hour to explain it to their friends . How you ignore r16 and whatever he says by all means but it can get to you as the truth and whatnot if you don't have the disciplined brain .


    there is this of course this entire echo chamber thing with a current activity of polarizing people for the Civil War to come , with a choice thread or two on how the ruling elites kinda hail from the area in question and the things they do , namely corruption , taking sexual advantage of the defenceless , selling to country not to the highest bidder but to one of their own to maximise their profit before the buyer will sell it to the highest bidder , you name it . September 12th, 1980 and the Peace that descended on the country has taught people well , the gap should be unbridgeable . Hence talking against the area is a must , feeding on the hate that's being displayed daily by the newly elites against the rest of the country ... So , Adam Driver would pass as this exaggerated Laz uşağı / a son of Black Sea , the Laz actually being a would be minority and whatnot but let's keep out of trouble or something . Conniving was what first came to mind but is not the exact word ı would use because ı checked in the dictionary to see "içten pazarlıklı" is sneaky and two faced ... Explains the region's success in Politics which supposedly means multi-faced , right ? The moods and unexplainable swings and stuff would be so normal in Kylo Ren , because they are what you would see regularly if you were to meet the average hailing from there in this very ordinary world ... He expects trouble from anyone , because he is plotting/making trouble for anyone he knows . There is no truth in anything , because his version will be what suits him best and other versions might differ . He will be even charming if there is anything to be gained from his enemies , which turns out to be the whole world quite a few of the times . The world that refuses to see that he alone was obviously meant to rule over all ...

    this ı say in full confidence that my niece will not challenge me because she has married this guy from Black Sea , now that ı was on record in this site saying there are also those who set real high standarts , which are than adhered to by many ; not everyone from the area is a backstabber . Which makes the people in question even worse , because they can't calculate what lies behind honesty and whatnot and such cheap words ... Sets them to consider themselves the one "correct" form of man , leads to increased competition with the rest , like of everything . Kylo Ren will be consumed with rage and jealousy and plotting so much that he can't do anything straight . Check his blade ; it was either after lunch when his brain stopped working because . Or he rejects standarts because he can't follow them , or he breaks them because he is the mightiest . The ground breaking side blades ? Ah , yes , the internal joke in London , telling us Turks what Kylo Ren actually is ... That not fitting the final stage to correct the blade makes it so much mooooooore powerful ? Yeah , whatever ...

    ı am not giving up that it was Abrams' signature , taking over the Star Wars genre with cool visuals before breaking it willfully . The Romulan mining beam to the core of Vulcan ... We Star Wars fans of the old school would never recover from the shock , after the last possible coin was taken out of our hands , buying red coloured stormtroopers who now fly . But you would have to remember we live in some odd corner of the world where Lord Vader having heard of the lawyer that banned some company from pirating Kenner toys in this country can be wholly blown up to producing Star Wars movies , Jakku is Abu Dhabi because in 2013 everybody knows the Republic is dead and we will learn the wrongs of our ways in a million cuts . (Let's avoid an infractable thing on the internal politics of UAE and how the rivalry between the two biggest have created this impression that one would always choose one when there was an option and whatnot, even they were together there as the phrase goes , "Islamizing" Pakistan to hurt Turkish "influence" , doing the very same in easier steps in this country , the whole Taliban stuff even) . Now that this country actually "produced" the Turkish Star Wars to fight the mood in the easily impressionable Arab capitals . You see , it is somehow easy to get sons of Karadeniz to think Arabs are fools , easy prey to tricks , so Arabs must be given better things and claims . Santa Turgut's era , you know , Democracy and Capitalism and Privatizations and promises to right ears that it was all set , and Arabs whimpering and doubting , using even rumours .


    with the Episode VII ending with the tantalizing sight of ... Andy Sarkiss . Who is actually Sarkissian or whatever . You heard of the stuff ? This country has a long running history of accusing Armenians who survived whatever treatment they were given , hiding themselves as what they were not , secretly plotting in conspiracies . Yes , am aware of Gollum and the ground breaking success in the motion capture business and it was only fitting , but wouldn't Snoke be actually great , ruining our little pathetic lives and our silly yearning to be Jedis ? Like any Jedi could have grabbed some chick across the galaxy if only they knew how ! Luke Skywalker skulking in some holiday resort with so few visitors , out of fear !

    but then you know the evidence that New Turkey was not that powerful , just as they were filming it in the desert ? With simultaneous signs of rebellion in Lucasarts ranks , questioning everything ... Starting with why Phasma was so underutilized , you know , except explaining why Finn hates women . Rose becoming the source of long faces (as Star Wars was like so much created from the ashes of the Vietnam War) and merely becoming another explanation , this time like short and plump (with apologies attached as it is only drawing attention to the depiction on screen) ... leading to why Finn hates women . Who think a world of themselves , each and everyone of them . That's why a correction took immediately took place : The Former Ottomans (FO for short , unstoppable monsters unless you accepted the whole gay business and no , ı will provide no links to gayness in the Ottoman world) would destroy the Ergenekon thing , with evacuation taking place successfully off Crait and ships going on serenely , but the Armenian dude would then order an invasion . Where the Resistance had followed bling foxes to the former mining HQ with heavy iron doors and the space bombards , those descendants of what we used to bring down the walls in 1453 would go through it at once , leaving just an handful of survivors , possibly the command party enjoying the scenery . Who could only be picked up by Chewbacca because Admiral Partydress turned back and attacked Snoke's ship , causing disarray on Crait . And the manly Luke Skywalker killed himself without any singular contribution ... The Last Jedi , that weeping milk drinker , that coward ... Was Johnson-Abrams directing team more impressed by the Luke Supremacy or events taking place elsewhere , like the corridors of Lucasarts ?

    ı can see your face of Gotcha right now ... Because of the saber duel on the salts/sands of Crait , ı gotta be wrong . But am like talking about the things of 2013 and '15 . Mark had signed on for George Lucas treatise . Didn't like the changes that would have seen him caught with his pants down . He even threw away his lightsaber , right ? Rey would finally take charge because Disney likes strong minded women over all men , ordering Chewbacca to go away with R2-D2 , newly recovered and knowing everything to know about Rebellion/Resistance . Uh , remember how Red 5 lies down in the water , the milk drinking coward using one of the S-Foils as a door ? Luke Skywalker would die -crying- finally caught by the all powerful Dark Side , by the great leader who had puppetmastered all the Sith lords forever ... Only because the desert lass hadn't seen a naked lad before and wasn't she ever curious ? Intervening years changed that to a duel where Lucasarts painted Luke Skywalker Black as a payback , because when they were kids they would have paintbooks to paint Luke Skywalker and stuff . Who says r16 is the only one who cherishes his kidhood dreams and stuff ? Then , may she rest in Peace , Carrie Fisher died . She was a moderating voice , trying the understand the newly developing world and much respecting the old . Because there would be open rebellion and hence a wry smile in a couple of places , Abrams made as if he wasn't involved in VIII at all , and made an about face , if that's the word , in so many places . So much that it apparently became yet another crisis in the "Art of" book . Where Abrams tried to give the world his vision and the Lucasarts sharpening knives and painting warpaint on the faces . So much that apparently there is a book about the making of the "Art of" book , called something about climbing a mountain or a hill , so that Abrams could tell his ideas without anyone bold enough to say they were canon because you could read them in the "Art of" book . Removed a further tier from canon ... And yes , even during the all the jokes Abrams could manage , kicking a Star Destoyer between the legs (on actually its thing) or that cavalry charge and all , we did see Red 5 and discovered it had its S-Foils complete .

    translation : ı can understand Boyega standing firm with Abrams , while Daisy Ridley had trouble finding jobs , because Finn would have ended up doing everybody actively in the Final Solution to the Star Wars issue , Ridley stands closer to correction back to Lucas treatise for any new stuff . ı imagine seeing the guy playing Poe in Dune , so he has already a shot in recovering fame because Poe as is will be a footnote in the corrections to come . No , no secret Christians and no more Snoke , because they are like minor joys to be had in the master plot of Disney destroying Star Wars to kill off an internal competitor to the Marvel franchise . Which Disney itself hinted because of the troubles in Lucasarts which they kinda need for Marvel pictures , asking to get out this high stakes mockery they didnt want to partake anyhow . The house Snot , the spiritual leader of the Congregation once lived was supposed to be converted into a public bathroom anyhow , to let anyone take a let go on his legacy ... The generation that will rule the select Arab countries that will destroy us ? They won't talk of how the SW franchise was destroyed according to "their" wishes , granting them another bragging point .


    everybody knows the drill . Do not believe , do not bet anything .

    no blade.jpg

    and such books delve into what was not actually used . The low cut of the trousers on the glorious face is the distraction - you can still see the "powerful" lightblade close to the hilt ...[/B]

    It's great to see such an obvious phallic symbol of power as a lightsaber be wielding by feminine characters, as it breaks up some of the gender norms that Lucas himself didn't care to examine after establishing Leia as a Force-sensitive as well. It is a potent symbol of empowerment.

    Also I wish they had gone with a new costume for Rey in TRoS instead of doing TFA again.

    most probably a visual search on the yandex search engine for the Art of Rise of Skywalker query . Multiple options in the webcafe , only google chrome on the tablet at home and can't find it at home ... No , actually she is not a Palpatine . This is going to be translated as she has now changed her surname (or give another Disney triology and there are no more Jedis but only Skywalkers , those who can go to bed , you know , with other sentients .)

    ı also declare the Darth Vader comics of 2020 as non-canon

    because why not ... Also the provenance of Anakin coming into existance with like Plaguis or Sidious divide also arising with last year's Darth Vaders . Yeah , also non-canon .(Actually had to accept one or two of the denials as useful subroutines , but this can not be the way Palpatine declaring Vader as Tarkin's lapdog in Episode lV . That one should involve Vader looking for an apprentice before taking on Palpatine , which really gets into the denied territory of Mara Jade , obviously given a set of really doctored history lessons and the lightsaber of Mace Windu . Because Disney would really waste it , too .)

    They're characters from the " The Clone Wars" series.

    Pre Vizsla is betting that he could kill two banthas bare-handed, which Gar Saxon doubts, because they're the size of elephants (in fact, they are exactly the size of elephants - in Episode IV, they dressed up actual elephants as banthas). He then realizes that Vizsla, being as ruthless as he is arrogant, would just target the baby ones.

    But anyway

    for the Mandolorians you could take as a direct insult , about the manliness aspect . (Didn't the Death Watch stuff in the cartoons involve kids discovering the conspiracy somehow ?)
