    What

    Han Solo is one dimensional

    he's ridiculously simple

    he's pretty much designed for an exercise like this- he's trope after trope

    which i guess isn't bad for a corny sci-fi 'opera' from the seventies, or whatever, but he's certainly not a great, complex, nuanced character

    he's a caricature- hell, people describe him as a rogue! we have like, a special film role that he's modeled after

    how many of your friends do you describe as rogues?

    the series was full of shitty chars

    What the hell dude

    The point is that he's ten times more complex than any of the characters in TPM

    Who cares if he's a hero trope or rogue trope or whatever, the point is that the writing allowed him to have a personality that people connect with and remember

    no part of me connects with him at all

    i roll my eyes at how ridiculous he was, and roll my eyes at how illy thought out and simple a lot of the PT characters were

    i'm not defending qui gon at all

    i'm saying 'haha you can't even say ONE descriptor for him after watching him for like 2 hours!' is ridiculous hyperbole
    i'm struggling to remember some of his lines in his movie and I can't, but I'm pretty sure I can remember a lot of Han Solo's lines. qui gon is a bad, bland, and easily forgettable character

    I has Dead Rising 2!

    Not that I'm going to play it right now or anything because DRAMA!

    Apparently my dad has been taking his new GF to my mom's grave. WHAT.THE.FUCK?

    After taking her to my mom's nephew who loved my mom dearly uninvited. Also this nephew suffered a serious illness last year most likely Gulliain-Barre which leaves him mostly paralyzed. And he took her to his house without asking them beforehand.

    My mom did everything for this man she loved she cooked and cleaned and played June Cleaver while all he had to do was work and when she died he basically looked to my sister to be domesticated in the same freakin' way. When that didn't happen he happened to find a girl who would do these things for him. So now he spends all his free time at her place and none with us.

    So I guess I lost my adopted father too because he wasn't my biological father which I found out at my mom's funeral.

    And I have no social life no friends no relationship prospects either.

    So what I'm really gonna do right now? I'm going to probably lay here in the dark and hope I fall asleep.

    Also I bet Qui Gon was originally supposed to be a Han Solo rip-off but Liam Neeson fucked it up because he always plays the DAD.

    The people in all of my classes seem distant and weird too.

    Maybe we exist on a higher plane of reality. Up in first class at the nose of the plane like in Inception.

    I know right? Apparently most people keep friends from high school or meet new friends at their jobs but since I've lost contact with friends from HS and I has been unable so far to have a job I'm fucked up the ass.

    Empire is pretty much the only Star Wars film which has an argument for being legitimately great.

    A New Hope had charm.

    The rest are twaddle. Although certainly the prequel trilogy much moreso.

    making friends in class was kinda difficult. then I went to London through study abroad and now I know pretty much everyone in my accounting classes. it really helps having repeat classes with them because they have the same course requirements as you

    Nah most of us lose contact with highschool friends. Even with facebook existing. You make friends in college, work, other groups and activities you engage in, through other friends, on the internet, lots of places.
