1810 England, the height of the Napoleonic wars. It was thought that humans walked the path of enlightenment leaving monsters and dark things behind. However, those monsters and night stalkers merely hide in the darkness, as a young maid, Bernadette, soon finds out.
Cover page for chapter 25. The game is a foot! Well, no the game is chess.
I went to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Overall it was enjoyable but there were a couple of points that just stick in my head in a bad way.
1. Hux is a moron, an idiot who shouldn't be put in charge of a Star Destroyer's janitorial staff. If these were the days of the Empire, Vader would have Force choked him ages ago.
2. The whole reason Finn and Rose embarked on their wild goose chase was because they thought Vice Admiral Holdo had no plan. Except she apparently did? The whole thing makes her look as incompetent as Hux. Can anyone tell me why she didn't tell Poe the plan when he first asked?
@artificer urza: I totally agree with you. Finally someone who questions Hux, as I do. I also think that Holdo seemed really incompetent. To be honest I thought, at first, she had something to do with the First Order.
Then what's with Snoke with such a short appearance? And although the critic praises Kylo Ren I think he's as weak as Annakin in episodes 1,2,3.
@brian terrible: It has been suggested to me that Holdo didn't tell anyone the plan because she was afraid that deserters would be caught by the First Order and the plan would be revealed. If that were the case, they didn't present it very well and it really felt more like the writers needed any excuse to send Finn and Rose on their wild goose chase. It just seemed rather forced to me.
I feel that Star Wars: The Clone Wars (the animated series) did a marvelous job on expanding on Anakin's character and his fall to the dark side. There's really only so much you can do in a two hour movie.
