  1. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    Rewatching this episode after we know their fates is going to be really interesting.
  2. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    You literally say the act to kill a child: That act did not occur. It was only a thought until the killing actually took place. I agree with everything you said on the act vs thought part, but feel like it works better with my argument better than yours. You're comparing what Luke did to any person killing someone. If you had powers that you were 100% confident in that told you that kid would go on to be the equivalent or evil that Luke saw Ben being in our world, the thought would absolutely cross your mind. With Luke being impulsive as he always has been, it's not unreasonable for him to act the way he did. I think you're exaggerating what we are saying about Luke (or at least what I'm saying). I'm not saying he's this arrogant and shortsided mess of a character. He's a great character who has one flaw, which is his impulsiveness. All characters (and people for your real life comparison) have flaws. That's his, and it can't be denied after watching him in the OT.
  3. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    But the characters (which is what we are discussing, right?) aren't real people. They might as well be considered aliens compared to humans with the special powers they have. Comparing Luke Skywalker, a Jedi master with the ability to see into the future, to someone in today's world that would be held in a court of law makes zero sense.
  4. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Also, why do people always try to compare fantasy worlds like this to real life? Pretty sure people these days don't have special superpowers that allow them to see into somebody's future.
  5. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    But it wasn't an act. It was a few seconds of impulse that he quickly dismissed based off of the magnitude of the evil he saw. Again...
  6. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Very well put.
  7. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    This x 100. He's always been impulsive. Anyone who tries to deny that is just choosing to ignore it. Just because he finally flips the switch at the end of ROTJ doesn't mean that he's completely unable to have one of those impulses for the rest of his life (let alone one that only lasts a few seconds).

    The east coast in me hates all of these primetime games, but if that's the trade off for having a good team I'll take it.
  9. MMA Thread

    Bones came out first saying he'd like to fight Adesanya. Izzy then said he already beat one GOAT, why not shoot for another (which is actually giving Bones credit as being a GOAT). Isn't every fighter's goal to beat the best? Bones then came out and said he'd make Izzy call him daddy by the 3rd round. Please tell me how he started the beef. Bones is a bully and always has been. The fact is that even when Izzy is at his peak, he'll be too small to compete with Bones.

    Fair enough, but the northerners were the one who appointed Jon King in the North (without him asking). They've shown to trust him as their leader, so I'm not sure why they would question him now.
  11. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    So the fact that those two foreign armies and the dragons march into Winterfell with the intent on fighting the WW wouldn't sway you to the fact that they actually may be out there?
  12. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    Because Jamie owed him a castle lol I agree it probably won't happen, but it's definitely in the realm of possibility.
  13. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    Wouldn't surprise me if he killed one. He's said the entire series it was always about the money. I wouldn't bet on it but it's definitely in play.
  14. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    I'm not sure. Wouldn't make sense for him to get outclassed like that, but Cersei is also a strategist as well. Tyrion is obviously aware how much she loves her children and with all of hers dead, it's not asinine to think that he believes she'll do whatever needs to be done to protect them. It's the smart play for Cersei to fight the dead and deal with Jon/Dany once that's taken care of, so I don't see why Tyrion would think that wasn't her plan. Thing is that she isn't really aware just how large the threat is, and I don't know if he knows that. She thinks Jon/Dany and the dead will weaken each other, not realizing that if the living lose, the dead's army gets that much stronger. Still, he can't take her word at face value no matter what she says so I hope he has a plan.
