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

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'm not sure about that, but I would say it is easily in the last 3 released Star Wars movies

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.

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

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 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"

Mugato: I just know people could see planets getting own up from the surface of another planet galaxies away


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

buntz: Mugato: 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.

Mugato: Why do people have a hard on about the bombers?


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.

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.
