    One thing I didn't understand. When the Death Star is fired Tarkin says "single reactor ignition". To my knowledge the Death Star has only one reactor. I know he was just setting the power to a lower level since the super laser was being used for the first time. But the Death Star has only one reactor so that line confuses me.

    Well... I don't know like the full schematics but I do remember from JEDI that Akbar said "the main reactor". That indicates a system with perhaps more than one "reactor" I think. I could be wrong though.

    Red Letter Media at their finest. Head to youtube and watch their first Nerd Crew podcast about Rogue One.

    The Nerds, Geeks, what have you...

    Wow have we crossed the line into an insufferable hipster posture the last few years.

    I stopped watching RLM (and every other internet commentator/blogger type) in about 2013, and I don't intend to start again now/ever.

    With "single reactor ignition" he obviously meant that they used one YouTube trailer reaction person to fuel the laser.

    Red Letter Media are the antidote to a lot the the overhype fan youtube channels. Collider and Screen Junkies the prime targets of their satire here. I love it.

    Collider and Screen Junkies are more of a business with a million sponsors than anything. It's in their best interest to cater to the nerd crowd.

    Collider and Screen Junkies are pretty fair and tell you when something isn't good. I don't consider them extreme fanboys. They're fans of genre films first and foremost but aren't blind to poor films. I do find RLM insufferable with their snarky negativity though.

    Agreed. Being critical and being a dick are two different things.

    I will admit Collider and Screen Junkies are pretty fair in their assessments of films, it's just they all seem to fall head over heals in love with all the hype before that. They are catering to the nerd crowd. RLM are the counterpoint, they like these movies too, but they don't feel the need to apologise for their viewpoint. Collider and Screen junkies I feel tries to water down their opinions somewhat as to not ruffle feathers.

    Is that it for the R1 hype discussion, sunk to reviewing of reviewer's reviews? Is that the signal to / thread and move on to the ep. VIII hype thread!?.:oldrazz:

    How about that still alive Poe Dameron!
    Honestly I have zero interest in who Snoke is, but Luke as recluse Jedi, I'll be there!
    Since it'll likely be a shot for shot reshoot of ESB, my most anticipated scene:

    Rey: I'm not afraid.
    Crazy Luke: You will be.

    I like RLM's Half in the Bag series- although Rich Evans is insufferable. Honestly, the only time I can't stand RLM is anytime they bring up Star Wars.

    I guess this means they survive Rebels & I think in another picture you see the Ghost parked with the other ships
