Nope.
The girls you're objectifying attend a private school for girls grades 6-12 which had a film festival sponsored by Bad Robot.

But please continue to tell us how their underage bodies are aren't good enough for you.

What.

Where did he said anything about their bodies?
Or you are so drunk this day on your "righteousness" that you have started to have hallucinations?

How on God's green earth can a person not see that those are clearly teenagers?

I mean, look at the facial structure...and their height relative to Kennedy, who, according to IMDB, is a measly 5'3''. It's obvious.

I think it's the fat comment from the prior page and plastroncafe simply forgot/didn't notice it wasn't Vegita-san. Though he did bring up their possible cuteness for some reason.

No I noticed.
Both comments were inappropriate given the source of the photo.

Unless of course the former comment were coming from someone of age-appropriate.

without knowing where the photo came from, I assumed they where part of lucasfilm and from some kind of red carpet thing, hence the bad robot logo behind them and wearing the same shirt. Last time I assume anything. besides the boss lady in the middle, I assumed they where all mid 20s tops . ugh....sigh. and with that, a monumental screwup for the new year. Happy God Damn friday.

I mean I guess it's a fair argument, given that apparently in the prequels the obstetric care available is so shotty women still due in labor...
I too watched the Robot Chicken star wars special

I did call in for a bit of a cleanup. i don't particularly care for organized or unplanned chaos myself..but on the internet, it's impossible to avoid.

as for medical advances....

why did they give luke a phony arm? why couldn't they have cloned it instead?

one would think in the star wars world, they spend all their money on war fare, and hope bacta can take care of the superficial stuff.

there actually WAS an EU book that was based around the doctors working the clone trenches. an interesting idea, but a tad too depressing for my tastes for a long form tale.

I caught a 2nd viewing of this and had the exact opposite response I had on my 2nd viewings of TFA and Rogue One. I enjoyed both of those movies initially but have not enjoyed subsequent viewings. TFA has some interesting new characters and the 3rd act of RO is great but didn't really enjoy anything else about them upon rewatch.

I kinda loved TLJ the second time around. Knowing the story beats in advance seemed to really improved my viewing experience which hasn't been the case for a SW movie in a long time. Even the stuff I disliked originally no longer bothered me Including the forced levity (although the opening scene with Poe and Hux still annoyed me). I'll wait a while before I watch it again but for me I think this one may hold up really well upon repeat viewings.

That's what I said too and I notice people on other forums saying that as well. TLJ gets better on repeated viewings. Even stuff like the casino planet scenes fly by the second time around.

There's still stuff I don't care for, Rose is kinda dull to me and purple hair only exists to blow herself up, but I like mostly everything else. The Kylo Ren and Rey scenes are the highlight of the movie, as well as most of Luke's scenes. I also like that the revelations of the mysteries from the previous movie were handled quickly and not made a big deal out of. With Snoke gone, Kylo Ren can be the main villain of the new trilogy without some bland emperor expy looking over his shoulder.

Whatever they are, I think they'll end up like Snoke, so it doesn't matter.
