The Last Jedi is now on Netflix


Recommended Posts

Watched it again last night. The casino trip was less good the second time around than the first. Mainly I'm referring to the horse chase through town. I just straight up skipped that. 

 

But I certainly enjoyed it. I picked up on a lot of the more subtle dialogue this time around.

Yeah. That's literally the only part of the movie I don't like. I love the casino itself though.

I wonder if I'd mind the pacing as much knowing going in what the pacing will be. 

 

 

I rewatched it Friday... still love the movie but the whole Kanto Bite sequence drags the pacing to complete halt. I dislike it more now than I did when I saw the movie in the theaters the first three times. Love everything else about the movie though.

I didn't catch this previously.

 

 

This is the shit I fucking love. Despite the casino chase and the idiotic military decision making, THIS is one of the many reasons I will enjoy this movie so much.

That’s just Star Wars, dog. Rogue One exists solely to explain why there wasn’t a flaping exhaust port cover on the Death Star. It’s a 120 minute retcon to explain a shit military decision. :p

As an engineer, I can tell you, mistakes of that magnitude don't need to be explained. Sometimes, they just exist because a moron fucked up. 

 

Pre-Rogue One, I bet some Imperial HVAC designer say "The exhaust port HAS to be 2 meters wide! At the airflows we're dealing with and the length the duct has to be, with all the blowers it'll take to vent the damn core, if we make it smaller the whole thing will overheat and explode!"

 

And the Project Manager was sick of dealing with HVAC's shit, so they never got together with the Defensive Design Consultant Engineer to make sure it wasn't a problem. 

 

THAT'S why the port failed the Proton Torpedo crosscheck. 

 

 

I love Rogue One because that explanation is better and more fun than what I just wrote--even though what I wrote is more realistic.
