One film critic: “Rogue One was just $200 million spent on filling in a plot hole.” Me: “Well, yeah, but it was a plot hole that needed answering, in fairness. Everyone has wondered for decades why the Death Star had such a fatal design flaw in the first place.”

Answer: Because architect Hannibal Lecter was out to get those space nazi mother fuckers and was sabotaging them from the start.

That was perfect.

Okay but why don’t more people like Atlantis?! like

the main character is a dude that’s brave and amazing but isn’t typically masculine
