I really fvcking hated this entire sequence, but that line was the shjt cherry atop the shjt sunday. Seriously, in a fictional world where slavery is not only a thing, but a gigantic industry, it feels especially petty to put the focus in war-profiteering as the gigantic evil.
@Proactive Citizenry , as Benicio Del toro’s character pointed out, the people she hates for making money by selling to the first order also supply ships that her and the rebels use. So she only has a problem with it because they aren’t exclusively working for her
@Richard Cypher, that's not my point. I'm not particularly interested in Rose's motivations for hating war-profiteers, I'm more peeved that the filmmakers and writers decided to have Rose stand up on a soapbox to act as their mouthpiece and deliever incredibly unsubtle and shallow social commentary.
@Proactive Citizenry , no I totally agree. Hated her whole arc. Just added a side note
@Proactive Citizenry , Rose was a terrible character all around that screwed Fin's character arc. He should have died and saved the Resistance but instead she saves him and now there's like 10 members left. The actress didn't deserve the hate since she did the best with what she was given, but the character of Rose in general is horrible
@Richard Cypher, ah, gotcha
@The Landshark , yeah her acting was great. The character was what sucked, and that’s on the writers/producers
@Richard Cypher, exactly. I felt really bad that she got so much hate. I'm sure she's a great actress but the character was just awful. Like sure, you wanna save the things you love. But so many people died because of her
@Proactive Citizenry , I defend last Jedi but yeah that was pretty bad. Except del toro. He was pretty good. And the drunk midget alien thing
Wait, what does she do to bums?
@RMB, she garns them
