Well, as the late, great Alfred Hitchcock used to say: "It's only a movie."

If it bothers you, don't go. If you do and it's any good, you'll have a few hours of fun.

I think the cross-guard lightsaber, the actual blade itself is one of the coolest sabers we've ever seen.

I love how it is emitting sparks and doesn't seem to be fully concentrated in a straight line.

It reminds me of one of the Lightsaber styles in The Force Unleashed. The unstable blade I think. I wonder if that means the blade is more powerful against other sabers, like a Claymore hitting rapier. Damn, the more we talk about this shit, the more excited I get.

Or weaker. I saw this rendering of the sabre in Empire Magazine. There's even a red wire running along the outside of the hilt, attached by little clamps. It really looks like a amateurishly fabricated sabre. Which is kinda cool.

It looks like it could sputter out any moment.

Beg your pardon but that makes no sense. That's like thinking a rusty blade is somehow "more powerful" than a polished one. Anytime I see that I think, "one hit from a real lightsabre and that thing will fail immediately. It's barely holding together as it is."

Yeah, it's so cool that the villain is armed with a barely functional piece of junk that he cobbled together from whatever bits he could find while the hero has a magnificent, perfectly made weapon. That really ups the tension.

That's sarcasm BTW.

Seriously, I do not understand how anyone could possibly find that thing appealing.

Don't think of it as unstable, think of it as raw power.

The lightsaber hilt itself is ugly, but that's part of being built by an untrained person. The blade having that raw power and the arcing sparks...it's beautiful. It's something we've never seen in Star Wars, it's brutal.

You took two separate sentences, put them together, and then tried to attack a point. What I said makes perfect sense. If that saber is creating so much power that it needs exhaust ports, it's obviously creating more than the newer conventional sabers that are toned down and better controlled.

An M60 is far more powerful than an M16, and thusly harder to control with much more kick (energy dispersion). If this has more raw power to it due to lack of refinement, then it's perfectly reasonable to assume it might hold an unknown advantage. Do you get it?

you would have to assume that the tech behind the saber is identical to modern sabers. for all we know, modern sabers may have an amplifying effect on the blade, rendering the kylo's blade a flashy noisy rattlebox with no balls...like a pimped out 92 civic. whats the point it getting into a heated debate over it when nobody really knows anything.

Indeed.

Besides, I like it. A rough sabre used by someone who knows how to use it vs. someone with a perfect weapon who doesn't. Sounds like the best of ambiguity... or irony. Which usually amps a movie. Something the PT totally lacked.
