    I haven’t even listened to a podcast since E3. I think I was getting a bit sick of them and just complained about what I did listen to. Hopefully when the release schedule becomes a bit more interesting I’ll give them another listen and get more enjoyment out of it.

    No Man's Sky - Xbox version and NEXT update 24 July

    Tempted to pick this up again. Probably on PS4 as it’s bargain bin price at the moment.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    That bit didn’t bother me in the slightest. The pole vault fishing was more bizarre and out of place to me.

    @Treble Agree with you on the front. My criticism of Rogue One is more to do with the story. Lots of it just don’t serve much purpose and by the end it starts to feel very contrived. The way they all start dropping like flies in the final act in particular. I enjoyed it, I just think there are far more interesting things they could be doing with the franchise. The way it is, they’re actually managing to make the universe seem smaller, because all the main players are involved in each other’s lives in some way. The next one is a Boba Fett film, right? Something like that. Because obviously there are no other interesting bounty hunters out there.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    The whole franchise is in thrall to the original trilogy. Not only are the uses of the force basically just extensions of (if not identical to) what was in the originals, even the vehicles and tech don’t seem to have moved on. If DJ is to be believed, the rebellion are still buying X Wings from arms dealers, despite the design being something like 50 years old. The AT-ATs, which I originally assumed were what the Empire used in difficult terrain conditions (Hoth) are apparently just their versions of tanks which they take absolutely everywhere. Same for AT-STs. They don’t seem to have anything else. Even the bloody battering ram has to be “Death Star tech.” They need to move on and not be absolutely terrified of not having stuff that people don’t recognise. It’s an enormous galaxy and we just see the same crap cropping up ad nauseum. I was was hoping the non Trilogy films would explore more varied things but even there everything is directly tied to the originals. Rogue One was a story which I don’t think needed to be told and felt very forced in places. I haven’t seen Solo yet but for God’s sake, there’s got to be someone in this galaxy who isn’t directly linked to the originals who has a story worth exploring.

    According to the Star Wars wiki it was fulfilled by Anakin when he topped the Emperor and himself, defeating the Sith. This makes it all the more frustrating that we’re basically back to square one with this trilogy.

    Its not that I don’t think Luke should be tempted at all, just that ending up in your nephew’s tent with a drawn lightsaber as they sleep felt a bit too far. But it works. Also, have they addressed the whole “bring balance to the force” prophecy at all? Because it doesn’t look like Luke brought balance to anything.

    What did he object to/feel should have been done differently with Luke? Edit: found it. This is interesting too: ”What happened after the end of the last one to make the most optimistic guy in the galaxy into this suicidal, cranky old man, telling people to get off his front lawn?” I agree it didn’t feel quite right, but I don’t think you can put all the blame on Rian - Luke had already gone away before he got his mitts on TLJ, and he was essentially left to come up with a compelling reason why. I thought the reasons given made sense. I wasn’t 100% convinced that Luke would ever draw his lightsaber against Kylo while he slept but once you just go with that bit the aftermath and his reaction to it work just fine.

    All this Phasma death scene stuff is bringing back the trauma of BB8 driving an AT-ST and the top coming off as if it’s supposed to, so you can see him. Some genuinely mental choices in this film.

    Croatia have been good. Not sure what happened to Ingerland after the first half.

    I don’t really have any interest in anything apart from the films, but can totally see where you’re coming from with Phasma. She’s just comes across as a boring, evil robot. We’re meant to be terrified of her but aren’t really given any reason to be. I also thought it was pretty funny that her chrome armour deflects blasters, meanwhile everyone else gets the armour equivalent of disposable plastic plates.

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    I really wonder where they’re going to go with this. TLJ ends with them rebuilding the resistance. I’m hoping Ep IX is set a few years down the line, Leia is gone (sadly we probably won’t get the Kylo/Leia confrontation that’s been building), the Resistance is back and ready to roll and we can get this whole thing wrapped up. I really want the next inevitable trilogy to go in a new direction. This Empire Mk2 vs Resistance Mk2 thing just feels like such a missed opportunity to do something different with the most beloved sci-fi universe in existence.

    You’ve been posting idiotic reaction images and snide remarks for a minimum of ten pages. Flouncing out now while bemoaning the general tone is a bit much.

    I don’t quite get all the Holdo love. She was right, but up until that point we haven’t really got any reason to trust her. When asked abkut bout her plan she could have just told Poe to bugger off and instead she just gives a bunch of worthless platitudes about hope and what not to a bunch of people who clearly fear their impending doom and don’t seem to think she has a plan. There’s no reason for her to keep it totally secret from the bridge crew.

    Nothing in that scene is in direct reference to the map. He says people who know him best think he might have gone after the first Jedi temple. Everyone else treats the Map To Skywalker as his definitive location. No maybe about it. It’s a very odd choice. Would have taken about 5 words of dialogue to clarify.
