Don't forget that Jedi Kyber crystals are now the canonical power-source for the Death Star's superlaser. And that the thermal exhaust port "flaw" was deliberately built-in as an act of sabotage.

I'm OK with Kyber crystals being the power-source of the Death Star.

But then, I liked Rogue One in general

Please refrain from posting story rumors about the upcoming film - some rumors may be true, and it would spoil the film for those of us looking forward to seeing this.

Thank you!

Tim, my post was a humorous reference to Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal, not a reported or rumored spoiler of any kind.

Speaking of which, I just watched this interesting and lengthy video analysis (a follow-up to a similar video on TFA), which points out why ROGUE ONE is so poorly written and executed:

Not a great deal of buzz about this movie at the STAR WARS websites I regularly visit, either. strange, when one takes into account the release of the movie just a few weeks away. Very peculiar.

I donít know about other people, but Iíve mostly just been avoiding all interviews, new trailers, and Reddit discussions so as not to be exposed to spoilers. Silence doesnít indicate lack of interest, but wanting to go into the movie fresh. Knowing that the movie is about Porgs is enough.

What, you were expecting THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK AGAIN to be full of sunshine and gumdrops? Not bloody likely!


It's possible that the new film will serve as a course-correction from TFA's flaws, but I fully expect more of the same, with Luke being used as a mouthpiece to validate Rey's girl power and awesomeness. And, plenty of rehashes/repaints of characters, vehicles, and ideas from EMPIRE and JEDI.


Anyway, here's some more food for thought. This gent can't spell, but he makes valid points:
