Terminator Salvation Kyle Reese Theory

I loved Terminator Salvation, but I even I admit it had a lot of flaws, mostly because of constant rewrites and stuff. But the only thing that really bothered me was that Skynet seemed to know that Kyle Reese was John Connor’s father and was hunting him, yet when he captured him, he didn’t kill him. I mean, Connor said it himself “Kill Kyle Reese, reset the future. No John Connor.” Instead he used Kyle as bait. Skynet is a super advanced tactical computer, yet had such a convoluted plan. But I think I’ve come up with a theory as to why he didn’t kill Kyle Reese and his plan would make sense.

We all know Kyle Reese would go back in time, fall in love with Sarah Connor and father John. But, we also know that the Terminator in the original, figuratively speaking, fathered Skynet, because its remains were used to jumpstart the creation of Skynet. Killing Kyle Reese and preventing him from going back in time probably would’ve caused a paradox which would not only erase Connor’s existence, but Skynet’s as well. A risk that Skynet probably didn’t want to take. It would’ve been easier to kill Connor in the present than killing his future father and risk a paradox.

This might be a stretch, but it’s also possible that Skynet could’ve also planned to turn Kyle into a hybrid Terminator, send him back to 1984 to father John and leave Sarah to believe that her unborn son would lead the human race to victory, but only to ensure both Connor and Skynet’s existence and for Skynet to win the war.

That’s how I think it makes sense and less convoluted.

Star Wars Clone Wars Continuity Correction

Previously I talked about how I didn’t understand how the Stormtroopers are not Clone Troopers. Cause I didn’t understand why the Empire would go from creating lots and lots of clones that are grown and are totally obedient to recruiting random people. Then the 3D Clone Wars series came out and said that they’re totally obedient because they Jango Fett was killed they didn’t have any more DNA to harvest and that changed it. But then, how did they betray their Jedi generals? Oh, they had a chip installed in their heads to make them turn on the Jedi when Order 66 was executed. All sound like a big copout.

But then, I remembered the old Star Wars Battlefront 2 game which actually had a better explanation as to why they stopped making clones. Was that after the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Empire, the Cloners didn’t agree with Empire, so they tried to rebel using their own clones against the Empire. During the attack, a lot of Cloners were killed pretty much destroying the cloning lab. And that’s why they switched from clones to recruiting. Again, that makes a lot more sense to me than all this copout shit like lack of DNA and chips installed in their brains.

But due to Star Wars being bought out by Disney, that was retconned. But, what are you gonna do, that’s why I never trusted expanded universes. But I’m just saying they’ve been using ideas from the expanded universe into the new one, like Thrawn. They could’ve easily put this idea into Clone Wars or Rebels.

How Rey Really Beat Kylo Ren

I heard people complain about this a lot and I wanna tell you the variables that allowed Rey to beat Kylo Ren in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

  1. Kylo Ren is a pussy. He’s a Sith wannabe. Sure, he’s been trained with a lightsaber by Luke Skywalker, but his anger clouds his judgment, he’s just so filled with anger that he can’t fight well.
  2. Rey was already skilled with a staff so she has some skill in fighting with a staffed weapon.
  3. Kylo Ren was injured badly when Chewbacca shot him, so that affected his fighting too.
  4. If you watch the movie, Rey is mostly avoiding him before she finally defeats him.
  5. This is a big one and it’s more like a “got lucky” thing. Obi-Wan in Star Wars (Episode IV) “A Jedi can fill the Force flowing through him” When Kylo Ren mentions the Force, Rey closes her eyes before she finally gets the strength to defeat him. Because she finally felt the Force flow through her, she embraced it, and that allowed her to defeat him. Basically, for that brief moment, the Force was on her side. But again, just for that moment, she got lucky.

So there, those are the five variables that allowed Rey to defeat Kylo Ren. Don’t like it? Still wanna be a stickler? Well, that’s how I see it and I’m sticking to it.

Empire: From Growing Clones to Recruiting

Here’s something I don’t get about the Star Wars movies. See, in Attack of the Clones, the Kaminos says that the Clones are “totally obedient, taking any order without question.” But then when the Empire took over, they stopped making Clones replacing them with Stormtroopers. I mean, for a long time, I had thought that the Stormtroopers were still Clones, which is why I was confused as to why George Lucas (along with his other stupid edits to the original movies) didn’t replace all the Stormtroopers voices with Jango Fett actor Temuera Morrison’s voice, like he did to Boba Fett in his (stupid) edit to Empire Strikes Back. But the point is, I don’t understand why the Empire would go from growing Clones who take any order without question to recruiting random people who could easily betray them. Then there were the animated shows like Clone Wars and Rebels, and all of sudden, they’re not so obedient. Stuff like Clone Troopers were traitors and deserters, that because they had to keep harvesting Jango Fett’s DNA, and after Mace Windu killed him, they had to make due with what they had left of. COPOUT! Why have that element of the Clones being obedient in the first place?

Alien Covenant Trailer

Watched the trailer for Alien Covenant last night. It was incredible and I can’t wait to see it. It’s great to see the Alien again and I am so excited. All I can say is “Welcome back Alien. It’s good to have you back. We’ve missed you so much.”

But there are so many questions. We know the crew of the Covenant find David on this new planet, but where’s Shaw? Did David betray her and kill her, or did he simply leave her for dead and she’ll pop up again later?

Will we see some Engineers?

We know we’ll see some new Xenos, like one popping out of a guy’s back, the Backburster. Maybe that guy who birthed the Backburster was the guy who had that spore fly in his ear.

We see an Egg and a Facehugger. Does David creates the Xenos like the rumors have said before the Covenant crew arrived, or were those Eggs already on the ship. Is that the ship that Shaw and David left LV-223 on?

We know Fassbender plays two androids, David and Walter, Walter is a basic robot, but he’s still a predecessor to the Ash androids, so he might still be a little “twitchy.”

And this one is a big one. A lot of people think that Katherine Waterson’s character, Daniels, is Ripley’s mother. Is that the case? I kinda hope not, seems like a real prequel cliche, and seems too convenient that the Ripley family is fated to run into these Aliens. Again, cliche.

Star Wars: Snoke Theory

star-wars-force-awakens-snoke-leaderIt’s been a year since Force Awakens came out and Rogue One just came out, the Star Wars universe is about to get bigger and bigger. Force Awakens left us with a lot of questions, like “Who are Rey’s parents?” or “Who is Snoke and where did he come from?” A lot people feel Snoke just came out of nowhere, well first of all, I think the mystery of who Snoke is just as a mystery of who is the Emperor in (the first) Star Wars, he was mentioned but we never see him fully until Return of the Jedi. But again, who is he? I have a theory, I don’t think he’s Mace Windu or some stuff like that. My theory isn’t that he’s a character we’ve met before.

I think he’s an ancient Sith, dating back hundreds of years ago, farther back than Plagus and Palpatine. Before you argue, may I remind you that Yoda was like 900 years old and still kicking. That’s my theory, he’s a Sith Yoda. I mean, he does look old as shit, it’s possible that he could be as old as Yoda, kept alive all these years by the power of the Force.

But the question is, why has he been in hiding all these years? Maybe he was in league with Palpatine, but he betrayed him, because the Sith always betray each other, and he went into hiding like Yoda. If Yoda didn’t oppose him, why should he? But after the Emperor was finally killed, this was his perfect opportunity to step in and control the Empire.

I can’t wait to learn of who he really is. That’s what I like about him, I like the mystery and I’m sure they’ll blow our minds. Can’t wait, fingers crossed.

Trick r’ Treat: Plot Hole Filled

Well, Halloween has come and gone, I spent the day taking my nephew trick r’ treating, which me and my sis, bro, and their friends got back to watch one of my favorite movies, Trick r’ Treat. But the longest time something had been bothering me about the movie, a small little plot hole I’ve been trying to find an explanation for, if there was one. But luckily one of my sis’ friends might’ve figured it out for me.

First, the plot hole that’s been bugging me.

SPOILERS AHEAD

 

See, in Trick r’ Treat mentioned the rules of Halloween, pass out candy, wear a costume, and the best one, keep your Jack O Lantern lit. Rhonda said that the Jacks will protect you, which is why Sam killed Emma (the first victim) because she blew out her Jack and why the zombie kids from the Halloween School Bus Massacre killed Macy’s group, because Macy made the mistake of kicking the last Jack into the lake. But here’s the point. See, when Kreeg is being haunted by Sam, one of the first things he does is put lots and lots of Jack O Lanterns in front of his house. At the end of the movie, Kreeg is revealed to be the bus driver from the Halloween School Bus Massacre and the zombie kids have returned to take their revenge. But again, his whole house was covered in Jacks, why didn’t they protect Kreeg from the zombie kids?

 

Allow me to fill the plot hole.

My theory is, that, it only protects you if “you” yourself light the Jacks. We’re under the assumption that Emma and her husband lit the Jack outside their house, and when they blew it out, it no longer protected her. And all the Jacks at the rock quarry were lit by Rhonda, Macy, and her friends, which protected all of them. But they dropped all their Jacks for their prank, except one, which would’ve protected them if Macy hadn’t kicked it in the lake. Now here is the point, Kreeg didn’t light the Jacks outside his house, Sam did. Basically, the Jack only protects you if you light it, since Kreeg didn’t light the Jacks outside his house, he wasn’t protected.

Well, that’s my theory and I think it makes sense. God I love that movie.
