Disney didn't make anything out of order.

Umm, yes they did. They released episode 7 and then went back and did the rogue squadron movie that is set just before episode 4. Then they released episode 8 and then went back and made a han solo prequel movie. They have been doing things out of order in this series for years. Have you even been watching?

You were clearly referring to Episode 1 and Episode 4 in your previous post. Did you finally realize Disney didn't make those movies?

Have you realized yet that Hayden Christensen never played Darth Vader?

(Technically, I guess he played Darth Vader for about 10 seconds in Episode III.)

I never claimed that Disney made episodes 1-4, but I did reference the fact that they own those movies. You made a claim "Disney didn't make anything out of order" that was demonstrably false, and I pointed out that you were wrong to make that claim. Grow up.

You're really just making a fool of yourself now. Anyone can read what you posted...

So even though Disney made them out of order, the first star wars movie is still episode 1, because that's where the story actually begins.

Nor a bike nerd, for that matter.

All that matters that you know the difference between Star Wars and Star Trek. Getting them intermixed have have you exiled to the spice mines of Kessel or the penal colony on Rura Penthe.

Here's the deal, if you're going to high-hat everyone with a nerdly point, at least get it right. Now you just appear to be an incompetent nerd. Clumsily trying to cover up the error didn't help with that either.

Subpar trolling, very subpar.

well actually, Tomato and Reflector both said I'm definitely not a nerd, agreeing with my previous post in the process. So if you're going to name-call, please reach a consensus about it, mmkay?

But star wars and star trek are both literally the same story: farm boy with no family Peggy-Sues his way to saving the galaxy. The only differences are just window dressing.

Also, I didn't know Phil Kessel came from a line of miners. Maybe that's why he seems so distracted from hockey lately? Is his family business in some kind of trouble?

Sure, it will be the first item on the agenda at the next meeting of Central Committee.

If the prequels weren't a classic example of a boomer screwup, I don't know what is. Can't imagine why you'd want to emphasize them.

I thought he also appeared as Vader in the Rogue movie, but I guess Disney couldn't afford him. Oh well.
That's weird. I distinctly recall going to a movie theatre in 1977 and watching a movie called Star Wars.
