Wouldn't a laser blast cauterize a wound? The movie is shit, but this bugged me the most.
>tfw JJ irremediably fucked the entire star wars universe
Why bother having a fleet now that you can blow up entire systems from across the galaxy
How could everyone see the Star Killer beam destroy those planets? Are they all in the same solar system? Wouldn't it take millions of years for the light to reach them? Wouldn't it take millions of years for the beam to hit those planets?
yes indeed. it is the same with suicidal persons jumping on rails before a train. when the breaks are slammed, the wheel of the train heats up and the suicidal person sees his wounds cauterized. the result is that the person remains alive for long minutes after the jump, up to when the driver must get off to watch him die.
Daily reminder that this mask is worn as a fashion statement, and has no other purpose.
No he wasn't, it was a burn when got those flesh stabs as well as the scar across his face. His stomach was bleeding from the bowcaster bolt Chewie shot him with. That's a metal bolt encased in energy by the way. One of my favorite parts in the movie is how after Han dies, Chewbacca is like, "fuck your son" and just nails him with a shot without hesitation.
Please don't bring that up, I don't want to hate it even more than I do now...
The 'hyperspace weapon' would explain the weapon being able to hit the target immediately, but not them being able to see it from other star systems (never mind that they saw another planet the size of a quarter in the sky).
This is one of those instances, where yes, it did happen, but when Star Wars was so young, it was still feeling its way through concepts in order to solidify rules and certain things. Only bitches use technicalities.
My favourite part is when they come back from that scene and Leia immediately goes to comfort Rey and nobody gives a single fuck about Chewy
That bothered me as well. Chewie should have been the one hugging Leia, that would have made for an emotional moment. Fuck Rey, why does she need a hug, she didn't go through anything as traumatic as the rest of them. You think Leia and Chewie would have stuck together the rest of the film just consoling one another.
A New Hope didn't really intend to spawn a franchise known for its attention to smaller detail and pottery, but hell, it also didn't anticipate a fanbase autistic enough to call them out on it either. That's all I'm saying.
>yfw Snoke gave him the helmet as a training tool so he would learn to rely on the Force like how Obi-Wan made Luke use that helmet
But he also wrote it to stand on its own as a plan b. I'm just saying that using that one moment from the movies is kinda cheap considering it was in its infancy and hadn't established rules. That moment is basically retconned by the majority of moments where the sabers burn the fuck out of people. If you can't get past that then just pretend Obi-wan set his saber to bleed mode so he could intimidate fuckers at the cantina.
Meh, I'm hoping maybe it's just a fluke and superweapons like Starkiller are really hard to manufacture.
JJ is still a tard with no respect for the lore and grounding physics of Star Wars, I agree.
The 'science' of the first six Star Wars movies, while nonsensical, was keen on keeping consistent with its fictional boundaries.
In this regard, The Force Awakens isn't just inconsistent with the films that came before it, it's also inconsistent with itself in a handful of scenes. Fucking normalfags are saying shit like
>so if the new Death Star beam travels faster than light speed, why does it move so slowly to hit all those planets?
You haven't thought this through. We see explosions when blaster bolts hit things. There's enough energy there to vaporize water in the flesh and blow a chunk out of you. It'd be messy. There'd be a LOT of blood if your heart was still pumping.
I'm going to say this right now:
Starkiller Base would have been explained so much easier, and made so much more sense, if it was something the First Order discovered in the Unknown Regions instead of something they built.
Not only would it be more conceivable for them to have it (like for real? How the fuck does a far-off splinter faction of the GALACTIC EMPIRE THAT RAN THE KNOWN GALAXY take so much less time to build a much, much stronger weapon?) but it would also give the whole 'Uncharted Regions' thing which they tried to make a big deal of a lot more potent. Like
>man, if there was something like this lying around out there, and we have almost no idea who left it there and why, then what else could possibly be out there to explore? Oh man I can't wait to see what insane planets are out there!
But no, no. Instead we see the Unknown Regions clicked into the middle of the galactic map like a giant puzzle piece, and when Rey goes out there to meet Luke in his mysterious hiding place, it's Ireland. It's literally just fucking Ireland.
As a matter of fact, you know what? Fuck JJ, fuck Disney, fuck what they turned Star Wars into, and fuck these threads, I'm out. I'm done with this. If you want to stick with Star Wars and keep watching those faggot suits fuck everything up royally, I won't hold it against you. Have fun with Marvel 2.0.
The republic thought the first order was a small spinoff extremist group with limited reosurces.
What if the empire was secretly pooling all of their resources into this elite faction? All empire worlds for 30 years pooling their resources and secretly supporting a "rogue extremist faction"? That is a lot of resources over time.
This rogue faction just happens to obliterate the republic with one shots and suddenly the empire is now the most powerful force in the galaxy again.
Who benefits from this?
Dr. Tolian Soran created a warp missile that is more destructive than the starkiller base.
you would think after 2 megastructure disasters, they'd invest in scaled down easier build-able super-weapons en masse with the same resources they used
