Re: Power of the reboot.

You also get a lot less story per issue than you used to. You have to pay quite a bit to get a full arc that used to be able to be told in a single issue

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Finn! Rose! Holdo! Capt. Phasma! Kylo Ren!)

After Snoke was killed, I was hoping to see Kylo Ren become the main bad guy. It wouldn't have precluded his redemption in the end and it would have been far more interesting (to me) than Palpatine coming back and replaying 2/3s of the final act of Return of the Jedi.

"For another time" is just movie speak for "it doesn't matter to the plot"

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Baze Malbus! Chirrut Imwe! K-2SO! Rey!)

To me Rey feels like a video game protagonist who is left deliberately vague/bland to make it easier for a generic audience member to insert themselves into her place. I couldn't guess whether this was intentional or not but she fits the pattern Hm, that actually makes a lot of sense. That's why th...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Baze Malbus! Chirrut Imwe! K-2SO! Rey!)

The only time Rey's "everybody loves me" thing really stood out to me was in Rise of Skywalker when Poe is about to be shot by the scoundrel chick. Then Rey winks and smiles and suddenly she's giving them her most prized possession.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Yoda! Ezra! Hera! Sabine! Zeb! Inquisitors!)

There was a writer trying to give the Chiss a push similar to what Mandalorians got a few years ago. A whole race of hyper-competent military types.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Emperor! Yoda! Kanan, Ezra, Hera & Sabine!)

The "copy the old movie and swear you didn't" trick seems to be a JJ Abrams special. Didn't he also swear Star Trek Into Darkness wasn't a Khan movie too? I was in denial about Force Awakens being a copy of A New Hope but he took it into overdrive for Rise of Skywalker. From the mid 90s to mid 2000s...
