The Last Jedi Review - Non-spoiler and Spoiler
    Just got back from seeing The Last Jedi, and I feel like putting my thoughts and opinions into words before I read or watch any other reviews. I managed to avoid spoilers and purposely avoided any opinions or reviews before seeing it. I'll give my brief, spoiler free thoughts now.

Whereas TFA was more or less a reboot of ANH, TLJ is its own movie and doesn't feel like a copy of Empire.

Rattenkrieg
Technology: Wiedergänger (Revenant)
During the fourth month of the Second Battle of Troyes in October 1947, as Continental and Imperial soldiers hardened their defenses after the failed Longknife Offensive, French scouts observed strange behavior among the Enemy forces opposing them. Large German halftracks were collecting bodies from the battlefield, then taking them back behind their lines. The next week, the Allied forces did not face waves of tanks and stormtroopers, but an unending horde of mechanized corpses. The newest innovation of the German war machine was revealed: the Wiedergänger.
Revenants, as the Allies refer to them, are simply corpses (or parts of corpses) bonded with metal parts and armor, powered by small generators, and controlled by a centralized computer or radio system. Their armor is usually thin, offering minimal protection; thicker armor is reserved for protecting the internal generator and computer/radio hub. Modern revenants are armed w

Rattenkrieg - Under Troyes, 1974
Rattenkrieg
Western Front, 1974 – Somewhere under Troyes
Eduard, Robert, and Antonio had been lost in the tunnel system for hours now. They had met an older, grizzled man, probably about 19 years old, and he had given them a rough idea of where to go, but they’d lost their way again. “This is hopeless,” Eduard exclaimed.
Antonio cursed in Italian, then retorted, “Well what do you propose, captain?” He readjusted the rifle on his shoulder. “I mean, we’ll find something sooner or later. We just need to keep walking.”
Eduard sighed. “I was just hoping to get into the action. I grew up watching all the action on the front. I wanted to be up in the trenches blowing revenants away with a machine gun, not be a bloody Rat!” He kicked a clump of dirt down the tunnel.
“But think of how dangerous it is up there! You could be blasted apart by a wheel-mine, or crushed by a falling aeroplane, or…”

U.S. RESUMES DIPLOMACY WITH AXIS IN VISIT TO GERMAN EMPIRE
February 20, 2017
Senior Reporter Robert Clemont
    (CNN) - President Gore's campaign promise to resume diplomatic ties with the nations of the Axis Pact officially began after multiple meetings in the German capital today. The move has received mixed opinions, supporters arguing that after 70 years of failed international embargoes and sanctions, a change in policy is needed. Detractors point to the multiple human rights violations of Germany and Britain, particularly in Africa, and to the oppressive undertones the governments of the Axis still possess.
    President Gore has stated repeatedly that he wishes to find "common ground, while still policing any illegal actions" taken by Axis members. Republican politicians, however, are still pointing to Gore's potential ties

TLJ is its own movie, and takes risks, and in that regard, I consider it superior to TFA.
However, I tentatively consider TFA to be the superior movie.


Ok, now for more in-depth spoilery talk. I'll pretty much breakdown my thoughts about the whole movie.





-----SPOILERS BELOW-----































A few random thoughts first:


The opening space battle was interesting. The Resistance's heavy-bomber type craft seem immensely impractical though, I think a dozen Y-wings would've done a better job.

The FO dreadnought seemed small to be considered a dreadnought, maybe it was just the camera angles.

The continued Imperial/FO doctrine of not having point-defense weaponry or screen ships still baffles me.

Luke's everyday activities montage was kind of unnecessary.

Some of the porg cgi or practical effects were lacking.

The communication between Kylo and Rey was a unique plot device.

I'm surprised Kylo Ren didn't kill Hux.

Snoke's praetorian guard should have been replaced by the Knights of Ren in my opinion; I suppose they can still show up in 9, but they keep being mentioned and little is known about them.

The ending was underwhelming tbh. I would have ended on the shot of the characters in the Falcon, not the random kid from casino world.


Ok, now some of my more in-depth pros and cons, starting with my biggest gripe: Snoke. When he's first introduced, he's able to toss around Hux when he isn't even in the same system. He later blasts Kylo Ren around with little effort. He's able to create a link between Rey and Kylo and sense their thoughts. And somehow, despite all this, he can't sense the lightsaber right next to him being turned to kill him. Snoke's death felt lackluster and inconsistent with his established powers and abilities.

Mark Hamill was great as Luke. I thought the direction his character took was unique; despite renouncing the Force, he still obsesses over it, as Yoda later points out to him. However, his character motivation felt inconsistent with his prior actions. Luke fought through impossible odds to bring Vader back from the brink, but here he's ready to kill Kylo while he sleeps.

With respect to Carrie Fisher, I feel like Princess Leia should've died instead of Luke. It would've furthered Kylo's fall and left Luke to reconcile his past (which he does do in the movie, but it could've been more in-depth imo), and come to terms with his faith in the Jedi by training Rey further. It also wipes away the unfortunate position Ep. 9 is left in where Princess Leia's absence must be covered.

The entire casino planet stuff was just boring, weird filler. The racing animal controversy was meh. The kids were fine I guess, I just don't like that kind of stuff for some reason. The entire subplot could've been removed entirely and the movie wouldn't have suffered for it.

The whole chase throughout the film felt dragged out.

I thought the movie was setting up some kind of "third-way" for the Force, but it still seems like it comes down to Dark vs Light; that's fine, it just would've been refreshing for something new.

Luke's death was odd, but I welled up with emotion when it flashed Tatooine's twin suns.




Star Wars has always meant a lot to me, and I genuinely hope the new movies are good, but so far we've got a rehash of A New Hope and a bloated, inconsistent sequel. I'm not saying they're bad, just a tad disappointing.

I'd probably give it a 6/10, and it sits at my 5th favorite Star Wars saga film behind the OT and The Force Awakens.

Rattenkrieg
Technology: Wiedergänger (Revenant)
During the fourth month of the Second Battle of Troyes in October 1947, as Continental and Imperial soldiers hardened their defenses after the failed Longknife Offensive, French scouts observed strange behavior among the Enemy forces opposing them. Large German halftracks were collecting bodies from the battlefield, then taking them back behind their lines. The next week, the Allied forces did not face waves of tanks and stormtroopers, but an unending horde of mechanized corpses. The newest innovation of the German war machine was revealed: the Wiedergänger.

Revenants, as the Allies refer to them, are simply corpses (or parts of corpses) bonded with metal parts and armor, powered by small generators, and controlled by a centralized computer or radio system. Their armor is usually thin, offering minimal protection; thicker armor is reserved for protecting the internal generator and computer/radio hub. Modern revenants are armed with a self-loading Sturmgewehr 67, making them extremely effective at taking out soft targets. Heavier models may be equipped with stronger armor and anti-fortification weaponry, such as PZ 71s or PGL 69s.

Notable variants include the Wiedergänger T (tier) series, which uses animal corpses, usually dogs, and the Wiedergänger G (golem), which are composed of various smatterings of body parts to create large, nightmarish amalgamations of flesh and steel.

Rattenkrieg
Western Front, 1974 – Somewhere under Troyes

Eduard, Robert, and Antonio had been lost in the tunnel system for hours now. They had met an older, grizzled man, probably about 19 years old, and he had given them a rough idea of where to go, but they’d lost their way again. “This is hopeless,” Eduard exclaimed.
Antonio cursed in Italian, then retorted, “Well what do you propose, captain?” He readjusted the rifle on his shoulder. “I mean, we’ll find something sooner or later. We just need to keep walking.”
Eduard sighed. “I was just hoping to get into the action. I grew up watching all the action on the front. I wanted to be up in the trenches blowing revenants away with a machine gun, not be a bloody Rat!” He kicked a clump of dirt down the tunnel.
“But think of how dangerous it is up there! You could be blasted apart by a wheel-mine, or crushed by a falling aeroplane, or…”
Robert watched on from behind as the two Continentals conversed in French. He was shaking his flashlight a little, trying to stop its flickering. Eduard looked back at him. He loathed most Imperials, but this one didn’t even speak French, which was especially odd for a Canadian. At least he’s an Anglo, he thought briefly. He waited for Antonio to finish his thought.
“…or even blown up by a landcruiser. A lot of terrible ways to go! I’m glad we’re down here. The instructors always say how bad being a Rat is, but we haven’t even seen a trace of the Enemy yet. I bet we’d already be dead if we were up in the trenches!” He laughed a little. Robert laughed a little too, not because he understood what Antonio had said, but because he hoped to make a connection with his compatriots. That’s what his mother would’ve wanted him to do. Eduard groaned a little. Maybe he could lose Robert somewhere in these tunnels.


Eduard was certain they were going in circles. These tunnels all looked the same; brown dirt held up by wooden beams, or grey rock held up by wooden beams. He was almost out of water. He’d managed to sneak some from Robert when they were resting a few hours ago, but they needed to find some more if they hoped to go on much longer. “If we don’t find anything in the next few hours, I say we turn around and try another tunnel.”
Antonio nodded his head. He’d grown less talkative as the hours wore on. He’d begun hearing noises, like an incessant scratching. Eduard said he didn’t hear anything, and he wasn’t sure if Robert could. He shook his flashlight; he’d already replaced the batteries twice now. He was hoping they would find something- anything- soon.
As that thought finished, he smelled something. Eduard smelled it too. He motioned them to stop. They remained motionless for a full minute. He finally said, “Follow me,” in a solemn tone. Antonio slowly inched forward, while Robert waited until he understood what he was supposed to do. They all pointed their flashlights forward. They eventually shone on a rotting corpse. Robert gagged.
Eduard pulled his shirt up over his mouth and approached the cadaver. It was a French Rat, about his age. A massive chunk of his chest was missing. He pulled the dog tags off the body and stuck them in his pouch, and after a bit more searching, he found some notes in their backpack. He read them.

The notes abruptly ended there; if there was any more to it, it was now covered up by dark blood stains. He handed them to Antonio to read, then pointed his flashlight down the tunnel, peering into the dark. He noticed part of the tunnel had collapsed. Perhaps it was time to turn around now.
“Mio dio.” Antonio looked up from the blood-stained papers. “Do you think we- “
“Yes,” Eduard interrupted. Robert was nodding in approval, sensing the fear in his squad mates’ voices. Eduard stood up, and turned to go back down the tunnel. He felt like he could hear it now; feel it now, right in the back of his head. Scratching. Scratching.


It took them several hours, but they found another tunnel to go down. They’d also managed to find some rations and water canisters. Their spirits up, they started down the dark corridor. Robert trailed behind the other two; they were talking to each other about something. He really wished he’d paid attention to his French classes during his training. His mother had once told him there used to be a lot of French speaking people where they lived. She told him they were the first to go during the first years of the war. Maybe he’d be speaking French if they hadn’t.
Robert noticed that Eduard and Antonio had stopped talking. He looked up at them; they looked scared. It must have been something on that paper, he thought. If only I could understand French. They walked for what felt like hours. The tunnel went on and on.
Robert remembered how the body of the Rat looked, almost like something had torn it apart. He had once seen the body of a man torn apart by a bear back home. That man’s body looked really similar t-
A blood curdling scream suddenly ripped through the tunnel. The trio froze. Another scream. They raised their guns. Then, a gunshot ran out, and muzzle flash brightened the tunnel in front of them. Antonio and Robert shot at where the light had appeared. Another scream, followed by a groan.
Eduard ran forward, shining his light. There, in a small hole dug out in the wall, sat a wounded man. “Imperial!” he shouted. Antonio and Robert ran up, examining the soldier up close. He was Chinese, and bore the insignia of the Foreign Corps. He was frightfully thin; it was clear he hadn’t eaten for weeks. Robert knelt down and started talking, hoping that he spoke English.
“Are you alright?” he inquired. The Chinese man stared back at him. His eyes almost seemed to be bulging out of their sockets. “English?” He still sat motionless, breathing rapidly. Antonio had pulled some medical supplies out of his pack, and was attempting to dress the man’s wounds. Robert still pressed him. “What happened?”
“Enemy,” he finally whispered. Eduard froze up; was this the easterner the note mentioned?
“Enemy?” Robert repeated. The man nodded. Eduard tapped on Robert’s shoulder, gesturing back the way they had come. He understood what he meant. He turned back to the man. “Did you come from the other tunnel?”
The man nodded again. Antonio stopped bandaging his wounds and looked up at Eduard, shaking his head. “I don’t think he’ll make it.” Eduard let out an exasperated sigh and took out his notebook. He slowly grabbed the man’s dog tags and wrote down the information on them. Robert was still trying to get information from him.
“What happened?” he asked again.
“Enemy,” the man repeated. Robert sighed.
“What else?” the man slowly rested his head back against the wall and his breathing slowed. “Guys, we’re losing him!”
Antonio put his hand on Robert’s shoulder. He looked up at him. Antonio shook his head. Robert looked back at the man. He wished he could do something.
Eduard closed his notebook and let the dog tags fall back onto the man’s frail body. He turned, then froze. He felt something in the back of his head. He heard something. “Do you-“
“Yes,” Antonio interrupted. Robert nodded.
The man suddenly jolted upright. “Scratching!” he tried to shout, instead coming out as an exasperated gasp. “Scratching!” He jumped forward and grabbed his rifle from under Robert, who fell backwards. The man turned the gun around. “SCRATCHING!” he finally managed to scream. He pulled the trigger and blew his head apart.
They were still reeling from what just happened when they suddenly heard footsteps from down the tunnel. Eduard turned. Through the dark, he managed to make out two green lights, slowly bouncing up and down in rhythm with the footsteps. “Stormtroopers!”
Automatic fire ripped through the tunnel from the two enemy soldiers. Eduard fired off a shot before dropping to the ground. He heard it ricochet off their armor. Antonio crouched down and fired. One of the stormtroopers staggered, and let out a robotic sounding groan, before balancing out and continuing forward. It let out another burst of automatic fire, ripping apart Antonio’s upper body.
“Antonio!” Eduard shouted. He turned back to face Robert, who was trying to fix his jammed gun. Eduard wanted to be brave. But the stormtroopers were getting closer. Closer.
The Scratching was closer. Closer. He could feel it all over his body now. It filled his mind.
Scratching. Scratching.


He didn’t even realize he was running until he heard an explosion. Robert must have used a grenade to blow himself up along with the Enemy. He heard the tunnel collapsing behind him. Only adrenaline pushed him now. He had to make it out. He ran fast, but the tunnel collapsed faster. He fell, his leg became trapped under a falling rock. He prepared to embrace death. The collapse stopped before that happened.
He breathed rapidly, still trying to process what happened. It took him several minutes to feel the unbearable pain in his leg. Broken, he thought. He looked back up at the tunnel in front of him; his flashlight was resting a few feet out of reach. His rifle was gone, and his pistol was trapped with leg under the rock. Even if I get out from under this rock, he mused, it’s still miles back to the entrance. He tried to calm himself.
It must have been hours when Eduard heard it again; the scratching. He tried moving his leg again, only to be met again with pain.
Scratching.
His breathing quickened. He pushed against the rock.
Scratching.
The noise grew ever louder, invading his mind.
Scratching.
He began to hyperventilate. He had to get out.
Scratching.
He grabbed the knife off his belt.
Scratching.
He plunged it deep into his thigh, screaming.
Crumbling.
Eduard wheeled his head back around. Down the tunnel, he could barely make out part of the wall collapsing.
Scratching.
He could see something making its way out of the hole. It almost looked like a dog. He couldn’t tell. He began to cry.
He could hear the thing sniffing the air. It slowly began making its way towards him. A mechanical clacking filled the air. His flashlight began to flicker. As it approached, his body tried to force out a cry, but it came out as a strained whine. He could finally see it in the fading light.
It was a man; at least, it used to be. A massive set of metal jaws with knifelike, blood-stained teeth had been driven into its head, its eyes barely glimmering within. Metal plating had been screwed into various parts of its body. It hands and feet had been removed, replaced by serrated, metal claws.
Eduard’s body was trying to scream. He remembered the stories of the rattentruppen. He hadn’t believed them. His mind finally snapped, but his eyes still stared onward at the beast. He pawed at the ground. The sanity that remained in him wished he had died with the others.
The beast lumbered forward, crushing the flashlight. Darkness filled the tunnel. Then scratching.
Scratching.
Scratching.
Scratching.


11 November 1974
Discovered that tunnel 93b had collapsed. Found dead French Rat, head missing.

Will report back to command in a few days to close case. Assume that his squad perished as well.
Must get that ruffian Walton examined as well, says he hears noises. Bloody imperials.
Rattenkrieg - Under Troyes, 1974
Someone on alternatehistory.com mentioned that a story featuring my Rattenkrieg scenario would be cool,
so I through together this story using some ideas I had floating around in my head regarding the scenario.

I'm not a huge writer, so please forgive any mistakes in grammar or pacing.
Hope you enjoy!

Rattenkrieg
When the war could not be won on land, sea, or air, the war went underground. The fronts still did not change. They never will.
Children are born, go to the front when they can shoot a rifle, and die minutes later. The unlucky ones become 'rats', and wage war underground.
They say The Great War has raged since the dawn of time. Some say this is a lie.
They say The Great War will rage until the end of time. This is the truth.
-
This is an idea I've had kicking around in my head for a while. Basically, the US doesn't enter WWI in 1917. The Germans start grinding forward in the west,
eventually developing 'Rattenkrieg' in the '20s. After a few German divisions emerge from under Paris, everything goes to Hell.  Technology is very advanced, but
more steampunky. The Germans and Communists mechanically alter most of their soldiers, and the Entente and Japs genetically alter a lot of theirs.
Now, the war is everywhere. The only "nice" place to be is the USA, where some sense of democracy and basic human rights still exist.

Triumph is Fleeting
Another map, this time Germany defeats the Soviets, then gets the atom bomb about the same time as the Americans. 
A peace treaty is eventually worked out, and Germany gets to work asserting itself in Europe.
The Allies unite out of fear of German nukes.
However, the threat of Germany is eventually eclipsed by that of China, which spreads communism around the world.
Instability in Italy leads to German intervention. After Hitler's death, various factions are vying for power and influence over the new Führer, and it's slowly tearing the Reich apart.
Feel free to ask any questions about the map!
