Even if that turned out to be false, what would happen is that we'd be pancaked due to the incredible G forces at play, not ripped apart. That's what happens when we fall inside black holes.
Admittedly I know little of astro-physics, but I do know enough to know that the concept of "light-speed" in a starship equating to a bus ride between cities (not to mention high-pitched laser bolt SFX in space) is ridiculous.

No, but my comparison with the Stormtroopers still holds ground.
Episode I did not stretch reality any more than the original trilogy films did.

How is that bad? They established their own ground.
If we're being relativists, which we should be, they can accomplish different things from others, and accomplish them well in their own regard.

You might learn something from the deal, and goodness knows, you have a LOT of learning to do.
That's what I do with you far too frequently. I actually make a habit of taking the time to listen to everyone's viewpoints, even when I disagree with them strongly. I'm quite well-known for it. Your implications are misplaced, and I would ask you do the same. Not that I expect you, again, to disregard your hypocrisy and take your own advice.
It sounds like a long-ass review. I'll check it out if I get the time.

Putting your idiotic assumptions aside, I'll check it out later tonight.
