    I figured it was a Sith weapon, since it's red and usually Sith have red. And I thought it was supposed to be a cross haha.

    Sometimes. As long as you're not including the prequels. Those were objectively garbage.

    LoL, was looking for this thread on SRK only to find I posted in here like 3 years ago, Jesus!

    Either way, I'm HYPED for this movie! I can't wait! Like others have said, it can't be worse then the prequels.

    On the topic of the lightsaber. Have you guys actually payed attention to the laser itself? It looks highly unstable with electricity running around it. It's a SSJ2 lightsaber! Could explain the exhaust ports or whatever.

    Anyways, can't wait!

    I heard a rumor that the Sith in the trailer is a female Sith...

    lol Leah ran some of the female empowerment speeches but it was back in the 80s so it wasn't quite as bad, Han still got to be pretty masculine and in the end still had his balls.

    But if they do a female Sith now, in 2015, it's going to be pretty funny. It would be straight up feminist indoctrination, maybe she'd even cut men's balls off on screen, murder little children, and at the end most people would still want to claim she was just misunderstood and it's really a man's fault, because she will no doubt be hot.

    It would be a trainwreck, and since I'd expect it going in I'd probably find it really amusing.

    Bonus points if she is a lesbian transgender or something, and the black guy is a gay basketball player hahaha

    Colbert beat me to it, damn. That jerk off who wrote the article "fixing" the cross guard is an idiot. Obviously you'd want the metal to partially cover the side beams to protect your own fingers from getting sliced off.

    Female Sith's are a thing.
    Although Serpent is right that people will add some retarded back story about her being abused by men n shit.
    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    also what is the difference between a Sith Lord and a Dark Jedi???

    tumblr_lmrfjpYM2i1qck1y2o1_400.gif



    Seriously though, a Sith Lord follows the religious Sith practices, a Dark Jedi is one that simple doesn't follow the Jedi teachings and uses the dark side of the force for their own personal gain.

    Huh, my Star Wars lore knowledge begins and ends with the movies, so when I saw the claymore, my first instinct was to go "So Luke finally realized that losing a hand is a bad idea, eh? Of fucking course a crossguard is necessary."

    Color regardless, I still won't be surprised if that's the reality behind it. J5AeG2e.gif

    Thoughts (I just watched the teaser).

    -HYPE! I really enjoyed Episode 2 and 3. And small portions of 1.
    -The LS we saw would lend itself to a slower, broadsword fighting style. The cross would provide a bit of defense, while hindering crazy, acrobatics like we saw from Yoda. Like Darth Maul, I think we'll see that the weapon was tailored to the person wielding it.

    How would it do that? Lightsabers don't even slide in the first place, they seem to stick or bounce. There is a metal part on the side too between the exhausts, so they'd get cut off too. And considering you can just move your hand quickly (these people can deflect laser shots after all) why would you need to block with that bottom part? If you're going to claim that metal part is cortosis, why not just design it entirely as cortosis instead of having the lighstaber as a hilt?

    Also if it is used for defense, and the other person just powers down, the holder's hand or arm gets sliced off because there isn't a guard there.

    Logistically it doesn't make sense. I wouldn't bother defending it, the less said the better. It's one of those things that you're just supposed to look at and say "oh this looks cool" but not think about at all. Which, I think it's gone too far and is foolish, but that's why I'd rather just not focus on it.

    The guard would make sense if it was a vibroblade, (which dunno if still canon but used to be able to duel with lightsabers) but a laserbeam guard? just some bullshit.

    They kinda making the cool unique lightsaber thing into some ordinary stuff and now making it ridiculous imo.

    Good luck not focusing on that, @Serpent lol. Speculating about a possible purpose for it doesn't constitute defending it. I'm indifferent about it until we see it in action.

    @Cyntalan‌ On the bright side, I'll probably enjoy the new movie, while people like you are doomed to hate it no matter what B).

    By not focusing I mean being indifferent. Just trying to overlook it. Because if you think about it, it really doesn't work on any level. I guess it might be hard to overlook it though after you think about it.

    It's pretty funny though. And honestly I think most of Star Wars is childish silliness. All of the movies are for kids, that's why even the PT doesn't really bother me much (and I think III is probably the best movie of the series anyway, the only other one that might be better is V, even VI had those ridiculous childish ewoks).

    I will watch VII for fun, not go crazy about it. As long as there isn't something like Jar-Jar in it, it'll probably be fine. If you take Jar-Jar out of I it's also a lot better. But whatever, it's still something a lot of people like and talk about, and pretty harmless fare over all. I still don't know why grown adults in their 30s and 40s and above obsess over the OT so much and act like Star Wars in general is some sort of super high level writing or cinema. Waaaaaay better books and movies out there if you're looking for something "smart." Most of it isn't popular though because the average person is pretty fucking stupid, so something like Star Wars is better because they can actually follow along. And plus most people don't want to think for entertainment anyway, because you can think when studying different fields instead, or while at work or school.

    Word. It's really something how everything is such serious business with the die-hards. I love Star Wars, but it's just a great franchise to me. The fanatics damn its creator and I always think, "If I was Lucas, I don't think I'd bother catering to people that make it their business to be displeased at every turn."

    Especially if I could make ungodly amounts of money no matter what I did.

    I really enjoy those The Old Republic movies. They look like a perfect blend of OT and PT.

    Unlike some other people, I do prefer the prequels in the light saber department. I enjoy the choreography but I can see why some people may think its a bit too fake. A mix of both would be great. Put some emotion into the fights. I think that what JJ will be going with the new sith. Rumors are that his light saber is powered by an older sith crystal or some shit so I wouldn't be surprised if his style of combat is a bit more crude and focusing more on raw power then finesse. I'm sure the Jedi's will fill out the finesse part. I hope it plays out like that so everyone can be happy.

    Sword fights in NT shit all over the OT. Vader vs Luke round one was terrible, except the conclusion. RotJ sword fight was better, but not much better.

    The ONLY good thing in the NT was the swordplay.

    Yeah the PT saber fights were fucking pointless, except for RotS. Not the flipping twirling pep rally choreography, but how long the fights lasted and why they turned on their flashlights in the first place.

    Lightsaber use has just gotten outta hand though, somebody farts and it triggers a rave now.

    When Old Kenobi fights Darth Vader, it was cool almost poignant cause it was the last time it was done right. Vader waiting with his at the ready, Kenobi walks up and takes in the situation before engaging his, they talk and then they duel, like some real jedi shit happening.

    Now somebodies phone goes off and niggas be turning into amputees all over the place. Scale it back Lucas scale it back...

    I recall that in early drafts of A New Hope, the lightsaber was going to be a commonplace weapon. After he refined what the Jedi were, he limited it to them exclusively. Going from the OT to the prequels, you went from seeing only 2 in one movie and get it bumped up to 50 or 60. Another issue is that there was not a real "threat" to the Jedi as shown in the past. The threat was a formidable foe with either just as much or greater skill, with a cause as a part of the conflict. In a lot of the prequel trilogy, especially AOTC, it's watching Jedi mow enemies down.

    Well of course Light sabers got out of hand.
    The Jedi Order had tens of thousands of members.

    Time of the OT was when the jedi's were at a few (Anakin did bring balance to the force), so only seeing some lightsabers was the way to go.

    How often they just ignited them because of sounds did get silly, but its mostly because 90% of the Jedi's blow absolute dick in Force powers and lightsaber prowess so they have to be at the ready constantly.

    The problem with the lightsaber fights in the prequels isn't that they're unrealistic. It's that they're so over the top they lose their emotional impact, and it's just too many of them.

    I would've liked to have seen some Jedi's who used some sort of alternative fighting methods.
