I mean I'm a pretty big fan but I don't go over the movies they're the Zapruder film.

Easter Eggs have totally lost any value. I'm not even sure this qualifies as an Easter Egg. It's a self-referential tribute to a character that was killed off.

I can see some Rebellion* grunt scribbling it on a bomb about to be launched at the dudes who killed a Rebel hero.  There were plenty of "Screw you, Adolf" messages written on bombs in WWII.

That actually makes more sense than spaceships using close-formation carpet-bombing tactics.


/* or whatever they called themselves in this trilogy

I gave up hope and skipped that entire movie.

Nice try. There's no goddamn way I'm going to watch that turd again just to see some stupid "easter egg".

You can't make me deal with that "space magic" movie again. No way in hell. Some directors shouldn't be allowed anywhere near star wars

Easily in the top 3 Star Wars movies

Examples of messages on bombs from a movie that's actually worth watching.

Best Easter egg of all times is in Peter Jackson's King Kong.

So we spend a lot of the movie doing character development, with little or no action.  In a giant monster movie.  So eventually there is a scene where the radio operator on ship is copying a message in Morse code telling the captain to arrest Carl Denham and to return to port.  When I was watching it, it was good Morse sent at about 20 words per minute, what you'd expect in real life.  That's unusual in movies.  Mostly you get "Morse-like" gibberish.  The film Independence Day is a perfect example of that.

I was watching it on DVD, so I paused the film, got pen and paper, and went back to the beginning of the scene.   I literally fell out of my chair laughing, because this is what the Morse code says:

SHOW ME THE MONKEY

That's how you do an Easter egg.  Not only is it hidden in plain sight, and relevant to the film, it's also an acknowledgement that the film is "dragging" at that point, by the people who made the film.

Well it was a Peter Jackson. We're lucky it was only 3-4 hours. You should see the two day director's cut.

It's in the top three of the Sequel trilogy, but just barely.

This particular thing would not be an Easter Egg, just something that exists in the movie.
 
2021-01-27 11:02:22 AM  
I had to look up which one this was.  It's the one where they are on a salt planet and the speeders need skis for some reason.  Then Rose t-bones Fyn and he doesn't get an awesome hero's death.  

Also, I think this is the one where Yoda blows up the hut with Jedi books in it.  And the books are actually books.

The one scene that I thought was awesome was the one where the slave kid used the force on a broom.  That really set up an awesome story for the next movie.

Ah yes, I forgot I was supposed to pretend the movie wasn't horrible bc arseholes on 4chan were acting like arseholes on 4chan.

I'm willing to go far in suspension of disbelief but the stupid bombers and slow paced space chase was just a bridge too far.

'Sappy' tag?  I guess that's shorter than 'Paying Rian Johnson to Give Him a Reach-Around' but it's less accurate.

It's in the Visual Dictionary that got released when the movie did.  This is not even close to new news. There is another bomb that says "Hi Snoke"

Why do people have a hard on about the bombers? Maybe they have miniature thrusters.  They had TIE bombers in Empire.

I don't know what you mean about the slow speed chase but ever since his nuTrek movies JJ Abrams proved he has no concept of space or time.

You are spot on about JJ, but he had nothing to do with this particular shiatpile.   Just the other shiatpile.  And the other one.

Because it's unrealistic for a spaceship with artificial gravity to "drop" bombs onto another ship with artificial gravity.

Because there's no gravity in space, or something.

I just know people could see planets getting own up from the surface of another planet galaxies away and Death Star #2 is vaporized but half of it lands intact other than the moon it was orbiting.  And don't get me started on the Trek films.

I know these aren't NASA documentaries but there are limits to suspension of disbelief even in a galaxy far, far away.

I just said they might have thrusters.  Just because they shoot downwards doesn't mean they don't fire like proton torpedoes.

We're on the same page here.  One of my faves was warping to Praxis and getting there five seconds later.

//Though it does make the transporting from Earth to Praxis more palatable.

There is two actual answers to this question.  The bombs are on tracks (which you can see in the film), that "push" them out.  The ships also have artificial gravity.  Once the bombs leave the track and the artificial gravity they will keep moving in the direction they are already moving once they hit zero gravity... because that's exactly how the physics works.  It's not even hard to figure out.

Regarding your Death Star 2 question, we actually never seen the aftermath of the the DS2 explosion.  The camera cuts away before the explosion dissipates.  If you play the Battlefront 2 campaign, you actually get to fly through chunks of the debris field.  Nothing as large as TRoS, but certainly indicates something other than "vaporization".  Kef Bir is also a moon of Endor, like the Forest Moon, so debris ending up on it isn't weird at all.

(All of Star Wars takes place inside of a single galaxy)

They were pushed down from the ship.

There would almost certainly be debris, but nothing within orders of magnitude of what was in TROS.  One chuck is 20% of the superstructure and there are apparently working Tie Fighters remaining as well, just ready to be used with no maintenance.

Yeah, I'll buy it, even though in Jedi it was pretty well blown up. But in Empire, they walked outside the Falcon in what they thought was an asteroid in deep space with just a mask on but OK.

At least I don't have to hear about people whining about sound in space. It's for the audience's benefit, assholes, like the musical score.

So anyway.

I meant the bombs in the Last Jedi were pushed down and inertia carried them, gravity wasn't necessary.

Same with Empire.  Even though there was "gravity" in the asteroid cave, I always just bought that there was none outside and the tie bombers dropped bombs with a push and inertia.

Yeah I was a science geek as a little kid and the bombers never bugged me. I was more bothered by the walking around in an asteroid/giant space worm thing . But I was like three years old and got over it.

The JJ Abram's shiat could have driven me crazy though.

There are no such thing as little pointy eared green monsters with laser sticks or sentient robots but people are OK with that, but they can't seem to figure out bombs dropping in space

It's a line when it comes to suspension of disbelief.  The Force, lightsabers hyperspace, aliens, we're asked to believe in those things in order to move the story forward.

But when it comes to the laws of physics as we know them there has to be some sort of explanation, even if its crazy at least it's addressed. It's Writing 101.

Basically you can create your world any way you want, but you have to abide by the rules in your world.  JJ is notorious for that, breaking established what can and can't happen at the speed of plot.

Yeah, that scene really drove home the feeling that JJ Abrams doesn't know, or care to know, a single farking thing about how anything works.

Although Rian Johnson, while not a creatively-stunted cargo-cultist like JJ, arguably set a new "logic, shmogic" low with that "Star Wars: White Bronco" chase. So many people clearly did their jobs on that movie; it's a shame that the garbage script just f*cked the whole thing up. Oddly enough, fixing the logic would've also fixed most of the problems with pacing and tension.

/technically it was just a different system, not "galaxies away," but same difference
//the bombing scene is just lame, rather than nonsensical
