I don't care about Snoke's story. I care that Snoke received no exploration in The Last Jedi. Does that make sense?

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

I'm not sure how those weren't answers; when Jedi horsefeathers happens in SW it's a pretty safe bet it's because of the Force. You answered your own objection. Everyone who watched the film knows that Snoke was the supreme leader. Everyone who watched the film knows that the Force can be a plot de...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

Why do you need every characters back story? That is perhaps a fair question given the way I phrased my paragraph. Obviously we don't need every character's back story, and that's not really my point. The point is that these were prominent, intriguing pieces in The Force Awakens that I wanted to se...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

The evil Supreme Leader of the First Order. The Force. Corrupted Jedi who helped Kylo destroy Luke's Jedi Temple. Maybe something; maybe nothing. There's still a whole other movie to come, and given that Kylo is now the Supreme Leader it seems very likely we'll learn more about them. The Force. Thi...

This feels like the payoff to a sitcom gag. Like some restaurant owner somewhere has to bluff his way out of horrifying health code violation and this is what he comes up with.

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

So, I recently re-watched The Force Awakens after more than two years. The last time I saw it was in the theaters back in December, 2015. It seems like there's been a bit of a sea change in regards to opinions about this film during that time frame. When it came out it seemed like people like it pre...

Despite this being in French, the proposed theory is easy enough to deduce, and I think should be immediately declared to be canon: https://78.media.tumblr.com/4459299970e9a13a3b70cd2d4b407499/tumblr_o127wxtzkW1s55xbbo1_540.jpg https://78.media.tumblr.com/570e7700a243ba2fa5a82fc345780e5e/tumblr_o12...

Re: Hosmer to the Padres - 8 Years $144M

It seems like a completely preposterous deal to me, but I also know that fans are always behind the curve on free agent values. I think it's possible that he basically lives up to deal like Soriano did (without approaching Soriano's performance peak). Still, it doesn't seem like a good fit for the P...

I do not recall him ever being more valuable than B. Harper? When was that? S. Castro was pretty valuable after his 2011-12 seasons, and then had a bad year in 2013.

This dragged out so long that, despite all the rumors connecting the Cubs, I was starting to feel pessimistic about Yu signing with us. This almost feels like a pleasant surprise now.

Also, Finn was on a raiding party at the start of TFA. The dude was a storm trooper who worked as a janitor some of the time, not the other way around.

I don't mind Finn and Rey not being together because I was far more interested in the Rey/Kylo dynamic anyway, but what they've done to Finn's character is criminal. Why do you say that?
