Feedback Monday (#80)

So, I'm watching Star Wars (here he goes again with the Star Wars fetish) and I noticed for the first time, a tiny chink in the armor of complete and total believability. You know at the end of the original movie . . . where the old guy (Grand Moff Tarkin) is presiding over what has to be the slowest chase seen in the history of the cinema? Let me refresh your memory - this guy is driving a giant metal ball of Death Starness and he has to get into position to shoot his "laser" (said in your best Dr. Evil voice) at the Rebel base. The only problem is that there is a pesky planet in the way . . . AND While he is puttering around out there in deep space, a handful of Rebel dudes are buzzing around like gnats, trying to land the Universe's most perfect shot ever, which as we all know, will end the movie.

So, that brings us to my believability dilemma - Remember the handy dandy death ray Tarkin has at his disposal? the one that we have already established, has the incomparable power to destroy planets?

Yes, that one.

Why, does he take his merry time to skirt around the problematic planet? Why not simply fire up that giant ball of hot death and blow the impediment to smithereens?

Hey, I'm no interplanetary expert, but it seems like a good idea in retrospect.

So, with that - why don't we stay in the Star Wars universe for this week's poll.

For the feedback portion of Feedback Monday, what is your favorite movie in the Star Wars franchise?

Tell us all about it. You might even win a prize.

Should be interesting,

Ben O.
