Anyway, the Star Wars thread [has been], on a regular basis, absolutely awful. I mean just downright terrible. Bad-tempered, endlessly rehashing old and tedious arguments, constantly taking what is a fun franchise about space wizards more seriously than, say, anything else. It was awful both to read and to be a part of. This thread may well go the same way, in which case it'll probably go on a break, just like Ross and Rachel, if you catch my hepcat cultural references. But I would urge you to not be a part of that decline into spittle-flecked yelling. If you catch yourself writing with a frown on your face, take a moment to ask yourself if, in fact, you wouldn't be better off not posting the long, detailed and enraged screed about why someone is wrong, and instead shrug and say oh well it doesn't really matter anyway.
It would be foolish to say that The Last Jedi Debate has ended, but I think we’ve reached a general armistice agreement with all the peace and fragility of the Korean Peninsula. Please don’t try to decide which side of the line the two arguments fall on. Regardless if you want to talk about The Last Jedi in this thread it’s your prerogative, but don’t be surprised at either the lack or surprising fervor of participants. Last Jedi Analysis videos:

More people have seen Solo: A Star Wars Disaster, and enthusiasm for discussing it reflects its box office performance. I mean, I still think it’s good. Maybe one of the best worst Star Wars movies ever. Easily in my top 5. Here are some cool YouTubes to watch about it:
Hey, do you wanna talk about how awesome KOTOR was? My favorite part was seeing the d20 rolls and the automatic calculation of your Ability & Proficiency modifiers compared to the enemy’s Armor Class. I can’t wait to see this visceral combat brought to the big screen
Ok, ok. I know why you’re really here; it’s to hype on Kylo’s (that’s not “Kyle’s” autocorrect!) new helmet and other Rise of Skywalker speculation.
Kylo Ren reacts!
