RE: Issue 16 of “40 Unforgivable Plot Holes in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’”

Have you read this article called “40 Unforgivable Plot Holes in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’“? This is what happens when you watch a movie, only once, and while live tweeting it, when your job was to properly review it. It’s the only explanation I can come up with for such inept analysis. I’d ordinarily ignore it. But you nimrods keep sharing it, not ironically, but as if it verifies your issues with “The Force Awakens”. This series of articles will debunk each of his “plot holes” one at a time and in no particular order, because the article is too long and monumentally maladroit to do it all in one article. I’d go into a nerd comma. Plus, he decided to write another one.

16. By the end of the movie, the impression is left that every single First Order soldier is dead besides Supreme Leader Snoke, General Hux, and Kylo Ren. That probably won’t turn out to be the case, but the fact that we’re given this impression makes the climactic discovery of Luke on an isolated island entirely irrelevant. After all, what need does the Resistance have of Luke now? Why should anyone care, at this point, if he’s found? Because there are two bad dudes left in the entire Galaxy, one of whom only shows up anywhere as a hologram? And okay, let’s say, for the sake of argument, that there are millions more First Order soldiers elsewhere in the Galaxy; isn’t it strange that the film gives absolutely no indication whatsoever that this is the case?

You might literally be the only (adult) person to think this. The First Order is an intergalactic organization with starships spread across the galaxy. Finn wasn’t even serving on the base anymore, as you keep referring disparagingly to his previous position. This is the Star Wars universe, where organizations are galactic and bases, ships and outposts have to be spread across the galaxy to be of any kind of threat to anybody. Not isolated to one starbase. You’re not 7-years-old anymore. Maybe when you saw Star Wars for the first time, you figured that the the entirety of the Empire was on the Death Star. You should be smart enough that you don’t need that spelled out for you now. Also, I previously pointed out how there was plenty of time for the main cast to escape the planet before it blew, so there was also plenty of time for any number of other people to escape, as well. But that this would change anything.

Wait, what’s this about a guy who “only shows up anywhere as a hologram”? Maybe I should rescind my “you’re not 7” comment. There’s issues with your object permanence.
