I've been following this mod for a few years and am very sad to see it die down. Nevertheless, I totally understand your reasoning and wish you well! 


In any event, I say go with Option 1 :D

So I'm not going to read this thread (for your own sake and my sanity (remember my post about prequel hate?)), I'm just going to post these links here. It might be a duplicate of what someone else posted (sorry but there's no way to filter the thread to find that out). I'll let the foaming ragers do their thing. I ask that readers calmly and logically *reason out* the points made.

 

Side note: One of the sites, ThinkGeek I think, has a butt load of ads. Not popups and spam, just annoying and in a little in your face. Or it did on mobile version. Just a heads up.

I haven't read all of both articles, but his point about the Force is total trash; the thinly-veiled justifications for a poorly-written story made retrospectively in a hasty and weak attempt to deflect any criticism.

All I have to say is that this kind of thinking is apart of the problem. It's the same type of stunt that GL pulled plenty of times in the prequels when characters did inexplicable and/or stupid stuff.

"Hey, it's the magic of the Force!".

That kind of freedom is fine, to a point. But I'm sorry, flying in space like Superman and astral-projection are too big a stretch for any sensible person, even within the realms of SW! Even if you think differently, the fact that we have to debate this detracts from the movie itself which is a clear indication of the plot's weakness. Part of why the OT was so good was because while the Force was always emphasised as a powerful presence, you never really saw OTT crap and if you did, it was always explained or justified.

With this, it's just meh...

I firmly believe more thought went into Kreia alone than to this entire movie.

Not much to add, people already told a lot about the general problems.

I'm at the point where I can't tell if it's all creative excellence gone above the heads of us ordinary folk OR a piece of throwaway trash that had all of 5 minutes spent on it. That's a worrying confusion!

I can understand some people thinking the film is better than others, but those (like on some FB groups I've seen) claiming it's as good as, if not better than ESB, just boggles the bloody mind!

I almost forgot; my final verdict is a 4.5/10...and that's being generous.
