    It’ll get dusty when Ahsoka finally shows up. When she meets and hugs Commander Rex I’m gonna white girl sloppy cry. No shame.

    Eh... filler episode before Filoni's. Carl Weathers got his Director credit and felt like he wanted to give himself the most attention. But at least it acknowledges Moff and loving Giancarlo being an endgame Boss this season it seems

    Next week is going to be LIT!

    I don’t want to start this again, but that TLJ deleted scene reminded of how stupid that movie could be at times.

    It had good moments, but the OJ space chase, Leia Poppins, Rose, Benecio, Holdo - horrible.

    I still remember being in a sold out theater opening night and I’d say 30 percent of the audience were embarrassingly laughing at the Leia flying scene.

    The entire new trilogy sucked. It had promise, but TFA was sloppy in not answering questions, and Rian just doing his own thing for TLJ, and then Abrams thinking he had to apologize to the fans for TROS.

    You didn’t even need Palpatine, but here we are.

    I’ve rewatched TLJ since seeing in the sold-out theater in New Orleans that night. I’ve tried to give it a chance, and yes - there are indeed moments, sequences that are really good.

    But - there’s a scene in Canto Bight where Rose has let out the horses, and is telling Finn her life story. I had this thought in the theater and still do, and it is -

    I don’t want your backstory (Rose), I want to know more about Finn’s!

    Then there was that awful shot of Rose’s sister pressing the detonator, and her face is laying on the cross hatching floor watching the bombs drop. Ok - any face laying like that would be smushed and disfigured. It looked like she was floating above the floor.

    I still wonder if we ever would have seen Palpatine again if RJ didn’t kill Snoke. I also think it could have affected Rey’s lineage.

    not blaming RJ just pointing out how poorly planned the entire trilogy was.

    Questions that were never answered for me -

    1. Where and how did Anakin/Luke lightsaber from Bespin resurface?

    2. Who is Snoke? Backstory? No, he just got chopped in half.

    3. Finn and Poe backstory? No, just have them accompany other characters. Got it.

    Killing Snoke was awesome and a big character moment for Kylo. TROS failed it.

    I will say I really enjoyed the team chemistry between Rey, Finn and Poe in TROS. I thought that was a big plus for that movie, and that’s the dynamic we should have gotten in TLJ.

    TLJ ended with the most complex and compelling character becoming Supreme Leader and ready to have the final film of the trilogy be the story of his either redemption or ultimate defeat.

    TROS shit all over it.

    I took it as he knew what the answer likely was but was trying to get an emotional response to what he was asking her to do.

    It just strikes me as bad writing. Someone asks a question like that in real life and the best response they are going to get is a glare. Be true to your universe.

    At that point everyone had lost someone hence bringing up her service record.
    I should have been more specific. I meant her leaving the resistance because of alderan.

    I don’t mind the dialogue, it works for the type of show that it is. Now the sound mixing does need fixed. You have to turn it way up to hear the dialogue and then you go deaf when the shooting starts
