Well I'm caught up.

Agree with Gene's assessment...4.5 out of 5.

No 5 because, I can't believe I'm saying this...vic is right about Leia...however Leia was always insufferable. The callbacks to episodes 1-3 are brilliant. McGregor hasn't missed a step.

I'll be watching tonight. Can hardly wait.

Did anyone else notice how that "annoying black chick" turned out to have more nuance and motivation than was originally posited? Could that have something to do with a "Character Arc"?

Character arc is character arc.

Bad acting is in the eye of the beholder.

Does anyone really think that Keanu Reeves is a good actor? Yet, dude makes stacks of cash playing himself in every movie. Adam Sandler, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Seth Rogen, Channing Tatum, Vince Vaughn......I could go on and on. Not the greatest ACTORS per se but good at playing the same character type.

I personally don't think that Moses Ingram is a bad actor. Is she Meryl Streep? Jodi Foster? Vivien Leigh? Heck, Sigourney Weaver? Maybe not, but terrible - No.

The Dark Side is strong in this one.  >:(

I hope Obi-Wan didn't croak.  :o

So you are comparing her to some redeeming characteristic...    Keanu Reeves,  Dwayne Johnson,  Adam Sandler have box office draws for particular characteristics.     There's a reason they are cast.

So what exactly is the redeeming characteristic about this backle girl that has her in the film?

She's not particularly pretty   
She's not particularly a good actress.   
She REALLY doesn't fit the part.      AT ALL.
Why is she there?

Good point, and I agree.

Thanks for asking!

She's not particularly pretty   
She's not particularly a good actress.   
She REALLY doesn't fit the part.      AT ALL.
Why is she there?
In order:

"Not pretty" Is Kathy Bates "pretty"? Is Sarah Jessica Parker "pretty"? Is Edward James Olmos attractive? MIckey Rourke? What does being pretty have anything to do with anything.

Not a good actress. As I said - eye of the beholder.

Why does she not fit the part? The character she played was written to be hated. Most everybody hates her. Seems like she fit the part perfectly.

Why is she there? To propel the story line.

Does she sport a pentikus?

No, but she did grip the knob of a lightscepter.
