    Fucking bullshit... the Empire fist fucked the rebel scum on Hoth, so Admiral Ozzel could have come out of lightspeed right up a Womps ass and it would have made no difference...


    Fuck if anything General Veers should have gotten force slapped for allowing Wedge to take down an At-At with a simple tow cable....

    just makes me mad

    What? The admiral fucked up because the fleet came in so close it pinged all the radars on the Hoth base and most of the rebels escaped in the transports to go plot their rebel scum plots and fight another day!

    Vader was like Howard. If you're part of his staff you can't win no matter what you do.

    I remember watching that scene in the theater back in the day where those AT-AT's were brought down by cables and those fighters buzzing around... it was pretty cheesy. I groaned thinking that's just plain stupid. A machine that size should hypothetically snap a cable like it wasn't even there. What the fuck was that bearded dope Lucas thinking?

    You're crazy. My 7 year old self thought it was the coolest fucking thing I had ever seen. It made total sense.

    But seriously, why would those little snow speeders even have a fucking grappling hook off the back in the first place? The whole thing is retarded.

    the tow hook were there to help build the ion cannon.....

    i mean they couldn't use tauntauns they would free before they got to the 1st marker for fuck sake

    the think that bothered me more was that the mailman from Cheers was the officer in charge for closing the gates
    giving Luke and Han only a 725-1 chance of survival

    Only in a movie do the rebels win. The Imperial Fleet consisted of 5 Super-Class Star Destroyers and over 26,000 Imperial Star Class Destroyers. They had close to a million warships in total. At their height of rule, their Imperial Army was close to a billion of elite soldiers with the most high tech walkers and ground artillery. They could've come out wearing cow bells and still squashed the rebels in a flash. Always angered me. :snicker:

    Ozzel was the net to catch the rebel scum escaping. So yes it was a mistake. The strike force was counting on the shields being down. Ozzel fucked it all up.
