  1. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    Okay, I can see that as a reasonable interpretation. I agree he is not a happy Jedi camper, but--and maybe this is just hope getting the better of--I see that look as having an element of grim...

    You may well be right. Nevertheless, I am having a bad feeling about it. It seems to me a little too precise--Solo's son falls, especially. The functionality of Starkiller Base... And if I'm...
  4. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    Why do you assume I didn’t read it as a whole? I understood the reason offered. I wasn’t persuaded by it. Lightsaber changes in the saga so far, other than the cosmetic, have been few. That...
  5. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    Why would he? Look at how little things have changed between ROTJ and TFA. Consider how Obi-Wan kept the saber he made to replace the one he lost on Geonosis. Probably, he still has the same one...

    According to the story reported by Han, which might or might not be true, even though Solo seems to believe it.

    Have the link; haven't digested the whole thing yet, but the portion with the film vs. the novel is very interesting. I must make myself finish the book. Meanwhile, it remains a stubbornly opaque...

    No doubt it plays a part. You can't just ignore something like that. But, that only applies if he's rational; as I've indicated elsewhere, he might not be.

    Another reason he could be out there...
  11. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    That's what I'm thinking. The sense of it I retain--I hesitate to call it a memory--is that it had very much the "We have a new enemy" vibe to it. Rey awakens to her--whatever it is,...

    Obviously, she doesn't have to be, and she probably won't be, since there's no evidence of it, yet. But, consider: 1) it would be a way to explain continuation of the bloodline without her being an...

  20. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    Equating Finn and Jar Jar is probably a little harsh, I think--not to mention being the sort of remark that will get a man tarred and feathered in this country.
