What was the criterion?

A friend posted a very.... interesting... ranking:

8, 5, 4, 1, R1, 7, 6, 3, 2.

I suggested that by his criteria, the real ranking should be:

2, 5, 7, 8, 4, 1, 6, 3, R1

What was his criterion?

Well, both of you put the movies in alphabetical order.

Kuildeous was correct.

1. Snoke says he is responsible for the connection between Kylo Ren and Rey, but that connection continues after his death. The movie also makes a big deal of pointing out the Luke/Leia sibling telepathic force connection or whatever it is first introduced in Empire. Are we supposed to infer that there is a chance Kylo Ren and Rey are blood relatives? That is, are we to infer that Kylo Ren is lying or mistaken about the origin of Rey's parents?

I interpreted that to mean that the connection between them is strong enough now that they could see each other without Snoke. I did not consider that blood relation is required to be attuned to someone else in the Force.

2. Is anyone else bothered that the film set up an attraction between Finn/Rey in VII, Finn/Rose in VIII, and only briefly had a scene of all three of them together at the end? Awkward...

While I saw potential for a Rey/Finn romance in TFA, I didn't think they were that interested in each other. Rey had a sort of hero worship for Finn when she thought he was part of the Resistance. But since nothing came about from them traveling together, I saw them as nothing more than friends.

Rose's hero worship was similar to Rey's, but hers obviously took stronger hold in her heart, and she fell in love with him. For all we know, it could still just be obsession and not real love, but it's real enough to her. We haven't seen any interest toward her though. I imagine that after her admission, the love will become reciprocated because of Hollywood, but then they didn't do much with Rey and Finn, so maybe not.

Why is no one including the Holiday Special in their rankings? Is it just so obviously #1 that it doesn't need to be said?

Haven't seen anyone include the animated Clone Wars film, either.

(Which, honestly, I saw as a huge missed opportunity to jump into the 3D market early)

The other day someone claimed that they had just finished watching all the Star Wars movies, but they hadn't even seen the Holiday Special. When will people learn?

Attack of the Clones doesn't have a "the" (unlike 5-8, 1, and 3).

And how the hell do they randomly run into another codebreaker in jail?
I took this as meaning that the guy they meet in jail IS the one that Maz meant, and the other guy had some kind of altercation with him, somehow ending up with the rose symbol thing, with the other result being that the original guy ends up in jail.

Which is a bit of a stretch now that I think about it (implies that Maz's judgement is very shaky!), but more satisfying than "oh there were two of them".

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.

M Town Wins-Losses (6-2, 75%): 71, 72, 76, 81, 83, 87 - 79, 82.  M Scum Wins-Losses (2-1, 67%): 80, 101 - 70.
RMM Town Wins-Losses (0-1, 0%): x - 31.  RMM Scum Wins-Losses (3-3, 50%): 33, 37, 43 - 29, 32, 35.
Modded: M75, M84, RMM38.     Mislynched (M-RMM): None - None.     Correctly lynched (M-RMM): 101 - 33, 33, 35.       MVPs: RMM37, M87

R comes before T. 4 > R1 > 2.

The second ordering given is alphabetical based on the movie subtitle; not the numbering. Kirian's ordering leaves off the "a" and "the", mine doesn't.
