THE 1HAPPY HAUNT

Or you could look over your own stubbornness to see that the landscape visually adds to the battle itself. As the director said

"where the landscape itself could graphically communicate the violence of this battle. Also the notion that the landscape could evolve during the course of the battle, the idea at the beginning it's white and pristine and it gets scarred and increasingly red. And when the cannon goes, it blows it all away so it just becomes a red hellscape. And as Luke comes back to the legend he needs to be and starts healing the world, the salt starts snowing down so it's back to being pristine."

Thus creating a very visually striking climax.

*Edit - Also the setup of both battles are very different. Hoth was a calculated diversion to hold off enemy forces while the majority of the Rebellion retreats off planet. Crait was a final stand, the last of the Resistance riding forth in desperation with little hope to survive.

But oh just because it involves AT-ATs its a rip-off of Hoth... :rolleyes:

Don't you have a ramp to go drool over?
the design of the base not the battle is a rip off of the hoth base. period. and even the hoth battle is waaay better and "graphically communicates the violence of the battle" better. get over your stubborness to see it for a poor man's hot base that it is.

The ground looks like it's actually bleeding. I'm not sure there's a stronger way to conote violence than that.

Oh you mean like actual dead bodies in the snow? snow speeders being shot down at POINT BLANK RANGE, and seeing laser cannons and shield generators flat out obliterated. Wish a movie would show that....oh wait. They did.. EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. EVER HEAR OF IT BUCKO????? :rolleyes:

I prefer any scene where the main character is just a ghost and not really there - heightens the excitement and sense of danger.

Okkkkkkkkkkkk bucko :rolleyes: you Last Jedi defenders are soooo pathetic and desperate to make that film relevant.

The discussion was about conveying the violence of battle. Walkers and lightsabers don't convey violence any more than tanks and guns. So, yes, I've seen it before.

As far as I'm concerned, they're all trying to measure up to Paths of Glory anyway. Ever hear of it? 😄

So deadly lightsabers that cut off limbs don't convey violence but red salt does??? :D:D:D:D:D:D:D that is the dumbest thing I have read today. 😆😆😆😂😂

Fantastic movie, right up there with Bridge Over The River Kwai in terms of war movies. Did you see 1917?

Not yet. I'm way behind on my movies.

Bridge is so good. It was a movie I'd heard about for so long before I finally watched it. It definitely lived up to its reputation. I also really like The Thin Red Line, though it's different than a lot of other war movies.

1917 is so good!

One of my favorite moments in acting and film is Sir Alec's big moment in Bridge's climax. His "What have I done" gets me every time. Pure class film making! Thin Red Line I have not watched in a while, be fun to revisit it. Recently re-watched The Longest Day. What an ensemble!

1917 is indeed a great movie. I’ve heard of Bridge but never watched. Pretty sure I’ve heard Thin Red Line name dropped somewhere too.

Gotta give props to Full Metal Jacket though if we’re going to bring up great lines at a climax.

“Who’s the leader of the club that’s made for you and me...”

And just like that we’re back to Disney 😉

One positive of Galaxy's Edge is we don't have the Disney characters dressed as Star Wars characters anymore. Because this would be absolutely terrifying 😂
