      Too bad you kept the shitty Kevin figure around, what an ignorant, racist bigot. He talks as if he's from the hood. He's white, he's not.

      Why is Kevin Smith doing a Nick Nolte impression through the whole video?

    Oh dear God, please please please please do not have a guest reviewer on. Your voice and even more important, your delivery is unmatched. I like Kevin Smith but he was not suited for this project. Total failure. Two things that should be labeled as NEVER AGAIN: 1) Trump 2) Kevin Smith on Cinema Sins (total fuck up).

    Tanner judge: I did, what's your point? Solo was somewhat disappointing
    and a parsec is still a measure of distance, 3.27 light years.

    Chewie didn't get a medal because Wookies aparently don't believe in giving or receiving awards.

    I never understood the reference to the millennium falcon making the kessel run in less then 12 parsecs, a parsec is a measure of distance, not time and there are no short cuts in space.

    Of course the empire didn't fire on the escape pods. The whole point of an escape pod is to be found. They have radio tracking on them. No point destroying them when you are going to recover them, their occupants, and the secret plans in the mop up. Uncle Owen was being a dick trolling 3PO. Seems they don't like droids on Tatooine. Sure Luke was lying about power converters. Uncle Owen called him on it. Lying to elders is what teenagers do. Do you know any teenage farm boy who can recognize a single living princess? I didn't think so. How do you know Kenobi isn't one of the most common names in the galaxy? It could be as common as Smith. Sin on you. Tatooine has 3 suns. One big, and 2 small orbiting the big one. When the big one sets before the little ones that's what you get. Like when Venus is the evening star. A teenage farm boy wouldn't know princesses but he surely would know about a Jedi weapon as cool as a light saber. Especially a teenager who can bulls eye wom rats from a T16. And on a desert planet moisture farming is clearly a lucrative business. Luke was able to afford a land speeder and a star fighter. Sure they are junkers but better than what you have. Kenobi wouldn't tell Luke about his sister. That defeats the purpose of separating them in the first place.

  • Danny Ramirez

    So your just gonna sin every movie now? Doesn't matter that this movie spawned a multi billion dollar franchise: with sequels, prequels, cartoons, mini series, christmas special, action figures, playsets, vehicles, record albums, and other miscellaneous merchandise; video games, robot chicken spoof, family guy spoof, "hardware wars", "space balls" all the fond childhood memories of seeing the movies over and over. Playing with toys. Getting them for Christmas. Pretend light sabre battles with sticks or brooms. Pretend hoth battles during the winter on weekends or when school snowed out. Star Wars. Is.. Without.. Sin. Gives CinemaSins a Sin for Sinning Star Wars: DING!

    Why all those people in comments hate Kevin so much? Sorry, I don't know almost anything about him, but he definitely does not make this video unwatchable. I even enjoyed it. After spending a whole day watching CinemaSins it felt good to have something different like their work with HISHE or this one collab.

    Immediately sees Kevin smith and listens to his stupidity.
    Vader was questioning the guy he was choking, he killed him incidentally since he had no info. He wasnt going to force choke him from 3 kms away and just shout at him. Simply watching the scene shows that the poor rebel was way too elevated to even try to get at Vaders saber. And hes half unconscious from ungodly strong cyborg choking surrounded by a dozen troopers with no lightsaber training and no skill; are you seriously suggesting he could grab vaders saber activate it and use it before the FUTURE SEEING sith lord could stop him?
    And that about does it for me. Will go off to look for another video and lend my voice to the 1.5 thousand other comments asking you to please not get Kevin back

    Chewbacca refused a medal. Wookie culture states combat more than medals, giving cheewie a medal would be just like slapping him in the face

    Counterpoint; reading isn't inherently bad and sinning it all the time is an oversimplification and lazy. Maybe sin excessive reading, or when the opening text doesn't add any new information or just confuses things, or amounts to just trying to hype up something before the movie starts. Just don't sin all reading. If used right it can work as a quick way to give worldbuilding info so the movie can get on to the actual story.

      Why do you immediately go "Is he black" when he's a clearly white southern American white man look at his picture and accent. Just because he annoys you?

    0:11 - 0:15 The Stormtroopers actually have pretty decent aim. It just becomes terrible when the plot demands it. How would these guys be feared if they always missed their targets? Sure, they're the laughing stock of the whole franchise, but Palpatine's regime would not have lasted long with these guys if they couldn't hit the broadside of a moisture evaporator. And yes, the Emperor may have started out with clones, but eventually moved onto civilians to bolster his ranks.

    He becomes more powerful in death by having Luke watch Vader kill him, because Luke already idolizes him. He basically sets Luke up to go down the dark path of revenge

    I liked Kevin’s sins, but how slowly he read them got a bit painful, especially when they were 2 or 3 times longer than the average sin because of a joke or reference being made. Great video though, only thing I’d change is to speed Kevin’s bits up a little. Love that guy though. And Jeremy too, of course.

    I'm adding a sin. "Look, there's a droid on the scanner". But, "hold your fire. There's no life forms". So is the scanner in Luke's speeder bet than the scanner in an Imperial Star Destroyer?
