Also about half of all science fiction written works, since sci-fi is so fond of technological dystopias where human life is permanently devalued by technology. And enough animes for someone more weeaboo than I to hit the character-per-post limit just from writing out the titles.

You missed the point, which was that he came to understand the only thing he had to offer her was his death and the life insurance money through it.

In the end of the movie, that final part, the man finally discovered who he really is, what his problems are.

So he does the only thing he can: sacrifices himself so they can get the insurance and at least be well off. It's the only sacrifice he's able to make for his daughter.

Are you seriously trying to tell me that I can't think he's ultra cool because the director didn't intend me to?

He's cool because of the way he dealt with the situations. Everyone's been stuck in a situation where they just want to explode. D-FENS sees a society that is unfair to him and reacts violently toward that society, the way all of us have wanted to do one time or another.

He's cool because he stands up for himself and what he believes and doesn't mold into a perfect, happy little citizen. He's cool because he has the raw balls to beat up two gang members with a baseball bat.

If the 'point' of the movie is that I'm not supposed to like D-FENS as a character then FUCK that shit.

The Rebel fleet vaporized the big pieces of debris, the little stuff just burned up in the atmosphere. Also they have a big party on Endor immediately after the Death Star exploded, so obviously there wasn't any significant damage caused to the planet.

>> No.10648026

Oh yea, it's cool to do things like that, to stand up for yourself.

And then you realize just how dangerous he is. The man holds up an entire fast food joint because he's angry at not getting breakfast. He explodes because the food doesn't match what he believes he does, and really, people only mistake getting shot out of luck. He blows up a portion of road because the construction makes him angry, and manages to not kill anyone again out of sheer luck. When someone rightfully regards him as dangerous, he explodes on them for thinking so. It's never focused on, but he might have killed a man because after he was in the wrong, he blew away the man's golf cart with the medicine to save his life in it.

Hell, beating up the gang members gets half a dozen people killed or seriously injured.

If you think someone like that is cool, go ahead. But the point of the character is that while standing up for yourself is good and all(look at the cop, who also learns to not bow to others) doing what he did in the name of personal freedom is insane and dangerous.
