I mean, only one of these regiments could aim...
To be fair, stormtroopers should not feel superior. Clone troopers are the only ones with actual tactical superiority. Stormtroopers couldn’t hit shït and died like bugs.
I never thought I was capable of immense loathing, until I saw the Last Jedi.
@Proactive Citizenry , wait until you see Captain Marvel. It’ll be déjà vu.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, Hahahaha that wont happen because Mrs. Marvel made it quite clear she doesn't want white men like me to view it. Can't be helped I guess, but her stupid wish is my command 🤷♂️
@ JCLEMZ, I feel like I’m missing something...
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, i hate the last Jedi, but actually enjoy Cpt. marvel, I see very little comparison between the two honestly
@The nOly One, the forced political agenda cringe-ness
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, I didn't really see anything political when I watched Captain Marvel, though I do agree Brie Larson's comments about being interviewed by white male reporters was politically absurd
@Sexy Homunculus, they were pretty obvious.
*Possible Spoiler Alert*
The constant reminders that she’s a girl that’s been “held back” by men her whole life in flashbacks, the rude guy on the motorcycle that tells her to smile, the cockpit joke, making Mar-Vell a woman, Just a Girl by No Doubt playing over the last fight scene, making the Skrulls good guys that are just seeking refuge but the Kree won’t let them in because they must protect their “borders”, downgrading the cool mystique of Fury to that of her goofy sidekick, those are just a few off the top of my head.
Agree or disagree with the politics is irrelevant. People go to the movies to enjoy themselves and escape things like politics, not be force fed them.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, I guess making Mar-Vell a woman and the Skrulls being the victims are pretty good points, though as for the rest of what you said you have to remember this movie takes place during the mid90s when those types of things were a lot more common. I think it's only been this past decade that that sort of stuff has begun to be seriously identified and criticized or done away with so it makes sense that a movie that takes places more than 20 years ago will feature that type of content. As for Fury he's in the beginning/middle of his career with SHIELD so he's not at the point we're used to seeing him with. At least to me that adequately explains the lack of his cool mystique he's normally associated with in the other Marvel films. I guess I can only speak for myself but I didn't really notice anything overtly political when I saw the film and so I really enjoyed it. But I know of Brie Larson's political leanings and disagree with what she said about white male reporters
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, The only thing I agree with you on is the Mar-Vell thing, I thought it was dumb the Carol couldn’t look up to him. That being said I think all the other parts are reaching to find something wrong with it. Yes the flashbacks show men “oppressing “ her, but for what Carol was (a tom-boy wanting to be a fighter pilot) and when she grew up (70-80s) it would likely be pretty common for men to scoff at that. The skrulls were refugees because they refused to submit to Kree rule, and thus were attacked. That was explained in the movie. The Fury thing is ridiculous, he was just an agent of shield at that point, and had yet to grow into his super cynical nature, and to think someone who is tough on the outside can’t be soft for something like cats is discounting fun character building. Not to mention that Cpt Marvel herself was goofy herself.
I also felt they did a great job of inserting her story into the rest of the MCU and kept the continuity in mind throughout the film.
Even the battle droids are better than you
@xamotzarm, watch out for those wrist rockets!
@ Tobias Widower, just like the simulations!
@xamotzarm, Roger Roger.
That's because the first order is no longer mandalorian. Dar'jetsi hutt'se
Maybe it's just me but I don't particularly like the Stormtrooper's helmets in the new trilogy
