    ABCB is the only rhyme scheme

    I was born on Pearl Harbor Day so I tell people I was born to drop bombs...

    Also, one point I was going to make is that, even though they clearly don't appear to be tying in Rey as a Skywalker or whatever, they are at least carrying on the character archetypes with the new cast. I see a lot of Han in Poe Dameron and del Toro's character. There's also some Luke in Poe.

    The song that got me out of grunge and into metal back in the day

    TBQH I kinda like that they are nobodies. Basically, like the kid on Canto Bight, anyone has hope of being force sensitive/attuned at this point, and I like that. It means anyone can be a hero.

    All good bro ham. I'm one of the world's worst for wanting to look at spoilers anyway, and it was totally my fault for scrolling too far too slowly, intentionally lol. That was the one line I saw and I just stopped there. Thanks for confirming the lightsaber thing. That clears it up a little for me. Still, kinda a bogus way for him to go out/sacrifice himself IMHO.

    Handguns

    The reason I prefer 9mm is that it is more universal, cheap, and readily available should something ever happen that stops or slows ammo production. If you're considering this for your wife, a 9mm also has less recoil and percussive effect.

    like what? a light and/or laser? It has a rail for either but meh...

    my 9mm is a Sig SP2022... and I really like it I like Sig a lot, but they have a slightly different sighting image than most people are accustomed to. It takes a little getting used to tbqh. I've never had a misfire or any other issue with mine.

    The Last Jedi *Spoilers*

    Okay, we saw it as promised on Xmas Eve Eve (Saturday.) Going in, the only things I knew were what I saw in the previews, a good movie buddy of mine seemingly disappointed and offering the non-spoilery comment of "the middle is kinda bad," and accidentally seeing biscuit's thing about Akbar dying... I missed like 3 mins, 1.5 each around the point where Leia goes into the sickbay and then one later on (can't remember where) for pee breaks (GDI getting old sucks... first one was mine, second time was both me and my oldest son, lol) Overall, I really liked it. It is what it is, a modern Star Wars film that extends the nostalgia of my childhood. Things I really liked: Leia's stuff - literal tears at some points because: Carrie Fisher the Porgs and the Lanais - Call me a sucker for the cuteness/humor factor of the Porg and the Lanais reminded me of something out of Labyrinth or another Henson creation The action sequences - from Poe's space battles to the escape from Canto Bight to the standoff on the salt flats of Crait, not many can do what Star Wars does when it comes to this Things I thought were good or okay: Yoda The humor - some came off forced, yes, but I am glad that my kid and I can share a laugh about some things from the movie The subtle stab at rich "both sides" people (arms dealers, class system on Canto Bight) The Cantina-esque environment in the casino, complete with a tune that would make Figrin D'an proud Hux's rage 3P0 still being annoying, and the callback to the odds of successfully navigating an asteroid field (3,720 to 1 in case you didn't know) Things I thought weren't that good: Rose - she seemed like a forced attempt at bringing in/appeasing another demographic, but it came across to me as almost playing up to racial misnomers, right down to the Yin-Yang style amulet Chasing someone through hyperspace - I just didn't think it was all that possible or logical to track someone through hyperspace, much less take the same route. Call me uneducated on the subject if it is indeed explained elsewhere in canon. But, I seem to recall "jumping into hyperspace" as an easy way to get away from someone (I suppose it is easier if they can't track you, obviously, but still...) Admiral Holdo - I kept hearing "Admiral Hodor" and she basically served the same role, with a little more dialogue and bad character Benicio Del Toro turning heel. What a cheap cop out. I was hoping it was a double cross and we'd see him help Finn and Rose get back to the rebels, but meh Luke's death. I mean, I get that he died, but I still don't understand exactly how. Was it because he used so much of the Force to project himself and fight Ren? Or, was it because Ren struck down the projection? How could they physically fight (clashing sabers and all,) but then Ren's lightsaber just poke in and out of Luke at one point? That whole sequence was just confusing as hell to me. Maybe a second viewing would clear it up, not sure. Creepy things: I could have done without Luke milking that alien on the coast. Kind of a pointless scene, and kinda creepy. Seeing Kevin Garvey in the casino as the code breaker had me wondering if he was dreaming/sleepwalking/dying again and the whole Star Wars universe is somehow tied into the Other Side of the Leftovers universe, lol. Overall, and again, you take the good and the bad and come out with exactly what I hoped for going into it. It was a continuation of the nostalgia of my childhood with enough freshness/lore of its own to hopefully be passed on to my kids' generation. If I had to reshuffle my order of favorite Star Wars films now, it would look like this: ESB, TFA, R1, ANH, TLJ, ROTJ, ROTS, AOTC, TPM

    Haven't read a single post in this thread yet. Going to see it tomorrow, finally. Taking my oldest son. I'm really surprised I haven't been spoiled or spoiled myself intentionally yet. Buddy of mine sounded a little disappointed. Got me worried.
