“THE FORCE AWAKENS: STOP NITPICKING”
written by Dominick Cappello
There’s so much to say about the ridiculous complaints when it comes to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. I’ve already pleaded with people to stop bitching about it being a retread of “A New Hope” especially if you’re just a YouTuber desperately trying to be the next Mr. Plinkett. But, I just remembered how people also complained about both Finn and Rey being able to wield a lightsaber. Because, according to the internet, there’s no way they could possibly know how to fight with a weapon like that… Accept that the film totally took the time to establish that they could. Rey is shown defending herself with a staff. You know, the weapon she’s holding in the damn poster? She’s probably been using the staff her entire like and knows how to fight pretty good with it. It’s not hard to imagine that those skills could also be applicable to sword fighting. What about Finn? The ex-Storm Trooper? Well, I’m pretty sure he’s confronted by a Storm Trooper armed with something called an electrostaff. An anti-lightsaber weapon that Finn would have trained with for years as a Storm Trooper. There’s no excuse for critics to overlook this scene since the Storm Trooper who yells “Traitor!” (dubbed TR-8R by fans) became a popular became a popular internet meme. Both Finn and Rey had to ability to handle themselves with a lightsaber. Plus, Finn still got his ass kicked by Kylo Ren even though Kylo had already been wounded. You happy now?
