    Do you mean Keira Knightley? Or Natalie Portman? Or both? Edit: my bad, KK was in Ep 1, not 3.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Wasn't the point of showing the kid in the stables that as long as there is hope, the Resistance will never die?

    Hey KK was the decoy in the movie. You cannot deny they look more than similar.

    Now as far as acting abilities, the difference is vast.

    Yes. They're like cockroaches they can survive nuclear holacaust. Ren's going to have to up his game in order to finish what Vader started😆

    Let's just admit it - Star Wars villains are almost always the dumbest villains in cinematic history. They waste time and resources building these complicated super-weapons that can be easily defeated by a ragtag band of pipsqueaks who happen to know how to channel a little space magic.
    to be fair, it should have been impossible for them to drop out of hyperspace inside the shields.

    dropping out of hyperspace in planet's atmosphere seems impossible considering what we know about how FTL travel works in Star Wars. And even dumber, apparently the precise time to drop out of hyperspace was calculated in Han Solo's head, since he said "now" and manually threw a switch, despite the fact that they'd be traveling so fast that his reaction time would have to be impossibly fast to time it right.

    Space wizards. It's a movie about wizards in space and the people around them. You need some form of that suspension of disbelief going into these things.

    Re: Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi

    The "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" novelization will include several scenes which were not in the final cut of the movie and even scenes that were never shot. More in-depth story between Rey and Luke, more stuff from Canto Bight among others. The big addition fans will really want is the funeral of Han Solo. The novelization is available to pre-order now. I highly recommend the audiobook version. They do a quality show with sound effects straight from the films and a full musical score.

    Star Wars Celebration 2019 will be April 11-15, 2019 in Chicago. Tickets go on sale at noon CST June 5.

    I'm heartbroken because I won't be able to go since I'll be in Scotland.

    But hey, I'm going to Scotland.
