That's certainly a collection of images and audio that form a video.

Nope. But I don't think it's just this. I find it difficult to get excited about most things nowadays.

So, the new Star Wars teaser. The first one left me with a profound feeling of meh. This one actually got me a little bit excited--even though I watched it with the sound off. But I'm a little perturbed that Han has been wearing the same clothes for the last forty years. Also that Luke apparently ripped the fake flesh off his hand so that we can show off CGI advances. Oh, and I still think the soccer ball droid looks stupid. I'll reserve my judgment on the chrome trooper. Crashed star destroyer and mangled Vader helmet were nice touches though.

You take that back. Soccer Droid is easily the best thing to happen to Star Wars in the last 30 years. Second only to the name Poe Dameron.

Still... wrecked ISD looks neat. I dunno about the new Star Destroyer, though. It looks like it has a massive underbite.

I liked this teaser more than the first one, since this one had some vague plot stuff instead of just being a montage of shots where the special effects had been finished. Still not a fan of half the redesigned Imperial stuff, especially how the stormtrooper helmets look like they joined Vader on the bonfire.

Looked neat. Had some issues, but they're understandable.

I think they need to start doing Rebel trailers and Imperial trailers. That TIE Fighter video may have spoiled me for generic heroic trailers.

My takeaway from this trailer is that they seem to be treating the age of the actors with a sense of humor. That's far better than if they had ignored it (as some initial information seemed to indicate).

I'd seriously like an explanation for why Han Solo has been wearing the same clothes for 30 years and Luke ripped the flesh off his hand, though.

Looking at Luke's hand, where he is pictured with R2 there seems to be something burning off screen to the left? Maybe he's been in a struggle of some kind and the synth flesh got damaged or something. A stretch, but... yeah. Maybe.

I think the more likely explanation is that the metal hand is both edgier and requires more CGI. The real question is how many lens flares will we have?

I mean yeah, that's true. I was just attempting to give some reasons for their showiness - more often than not they don't really bother. There are a few weirdisms in Star Wars that could probably be quite easily explained with even a tiny bit of thought and care, but usually it's just thrown out there for the fans to scratch their heads at. And of course there are some things that are just there and cannot possibly be explained sensibly...

And then there are the things that they feel the need to explain that didn't need explanations.

"It's unfair! No one's ever been appointed to the Council without being made a master before!"
Fans: He's just being a whiny baby as usual and being racist towards Cereans in the process.
LFL: We changed our minds; Ki-Adi-Mundi was always a master.


"I can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs."
Fans: But a parsec is a measure of distance. Han is just blustering.
LFL: Nope, all our heroes are paragons of right and honesty. You have to navigate between black holes to get to Kessel, so Han was truly an impressive pilot to do it in only 12 parsecs.

Ugh. Kessel Run. LET'S DO SOME MATH!

BWAHAHAHAHA. Yeah. So... if we assume the oh-so-dangerous gravitational forces are equivalent to those experienced by the planet Mercury from our Sun at the nearest point of its orbit, and taking into account Han says less than twelve parsecs (so we will enter 11 into our calculator) and taking into the account the length of the in-universe lightyear being slightly longer than ours (they apparently set the parsec to roughly the same value as ours in terms of lightyears, rather than determining it based on the orbit of Coruscant... morons)...

The black holes in the Maw would have to have a combined mass of 55 trillion solar masses, or nearly thirty-seven times the mass of the Milky Way galaxy. But perhaps Mercury is an extreme case. Maybe Pluto at its farthest point would provide a better example... though that would mean entering the very edge of a solar system is apparently trouser-soilingly dangerous for a ship in hyperspace...

Well, now we're down to 5.2 trillion solar masses... or just three Milky Ways.

...It gets even better. If you take the gravitational field generated by an average human being at six feet away... you're still at 1.2 million solar masses, which is at least in the realm of the supermassive black hole. It's about one quarter of the mass of the SMBH at the center of the Milky Way.

Then don't try to use science to cover your characters. <_<

If people want to do stylistic stuff, great... just don't then go "Oh yeah, we're science fiction so here's a bunch of big words we don't understand and we're counting on the fact that our audience, which we presume has the average intelligence of an eight-year old, doesn't either." >_>

It's insulting to us, especially since Occam's Razor suggests a much better explanation that is the one used in the script: Han is bullshitting.

If you go on to define things as unusual, yes. If you just say, "Oh, it's black hole gravity at FORTY LIGHT YEARS AWAY," you're a jabbering loon, or a lazy writer.

Or you go a little from A, a little from B, and you're George Lucas. But I know he didn't come up with the half-assed explanation.
