          In the west, only for luxury purposes or as a hobby. 99% of yields come from Industrial agriculture.
          The 3rd world has some pre-Industrial agriculture, because it consists of pre-Industrial civilizations with post-Industrial features.

            This is the main thing. Even if they are sensible and using planets instead of building giant space farms - why are they using animal labor and single row plows and the like?
            Did they raid an organic, artisan cheese farm planet?
            The farmers should at least be using combines and have massive terraformed plots under their control.
            The only thing that would make sense - and isnt mentioned in the movie at all so would be pure headcanon and making excuses for bad writing - would be to say that serf planets are denied advanced tech in order to make sure they cant revolt against the interstellar civs and armies.

                I can see space habitats being viable if you have enough space industry to make and expand them cheaply, and if fuel to dig stuff out of gravity wells is expensive.

                You start with a small o'neill cylinder, but if you can expand it even while it operates, than it's a perfectly viable alternative.

                Even if you can do things like get the plants enough UV light and simulate gravity, every pound of food you produce and send away means a pound that has to be sent to the station. Not just fertilizers but water and CO2 as well. Its much better to just build the farm nearer to where you're getting those and most likely its going to be on the planet itself. There's tons of this stuff on Mars for example. Even if you can't grow crops on the surface of Mars you can still build the same structure you're proposing but on the surface. Now you can harvest water ice trapped in the surface and CO2 from the atmosphere.

              Because these people aren't some government set up corpo-farm. They are a bunch of people without much money who purposely moved to the edge civilization to live a a better and peaceful life. Picture a futuristic version of the Mayflower. They left the comforts of civilization and had to start fresh with minimal supplies and trade.

              The military wasn't reliant on this moon either. They are just essentially collecting taxes to show they are the boss everywhere. The IRS doesn't give a shit if you are some peaceful farmer who owes just $100 in the boonies either, they get their cut.

              spaceship agriculture allows you to exactly control the environment you grow your crops in and completely eliminate the threat of disease and weather to your crops.
              its very unlikely that an alien ecosystem could easily be adapted to your own agricultural products, you would probably spend a long time to fertilize the soil in the way you want to
              spaceships are a larger investment initially, but have a far bigger benefit. if you can comfortably travel at FTL and colonize other stars, planets themselves become a lot less useful, because you will be building space infrastructure anyways, so just build a few more space stations designated as farms

                >exactly control the environment
                You mean have to micromanager every tiny thing down to the bacterial level. Life-bearing planets and moons are already set up to grow the food, no need to "control" them at all.
                Look at history and see how terrible it is to try and "control" agriculture in the long term.
                Your space farms will be stripped of nutrients in a few generations and you'll have to continually scoop up more resources from planets.
                Or you could just use the planets to grow your food.
                >you would probably spend a long time to fertilize the soil in the way you want to
                Almost half the time it would take to first build a giant location for the soil, and then have to fertilize it to be hospitable to what you desire.
                >but have a far bigger benefit
                The only benefits are that they can move, and they arent in gravity wells.
                We are shown very clearly that neither of these are issues for the group, so putting in that initial investment is a total waste and gets you no real added benefit.

By the time you get to 40k, you can easily see the influences of Herbert (a long-lived God Emperor) and Asimov (a failing empire with a loose grip on its frontiers). Go correct the Wikipedia article if you don't think this is "reputable" enough.

                Nothing new under the sun, kiddo.

                40K is a broad setting with lots of different elements borrowed from other settings so that the 40K setting serves as a good basis for any game they want to sell. The Horus Heresy for example only exists in the lore because they needed a lore reason for why they were shipping a box set where the two armies shared identical units. Oh its actually from a civil war, the hugest and most epicest of civil wars! The Imperial Guard has a ton of variety in unit designs because they're all from different planets, which also happens to let you use your generic historical minis while playing the game. Those units aren't just Russian cossacks I stole from my dad, they're Arruzkian calvalry!

          The production design above all else. The opening scene where the space soldiers roll into town could be an ifficial 40K short if you added some gothic spires to the space ship and tinkered the dialogue a bit.

        Did Warhammer invent space fascists? I ask because nothing else in the whole movie seems to be Warhammer like at all beyond the Space Nazis. and that was take from this being a Star Wars riff.

        Some elements in the movie reminding you of warhammer doesn't make it a "warhammer ripoff" especially when warhammer didn't even invent any of those elements

    I gave up after the first fight scene. The writing is just awful, genuinely awful. 5 seconds in he's telling us what's going on...the first thing a kid learns in school about storytelling is show, not tell but somehow that's gone over his head. It's just a dumb film written by an idiot who's loved by idiots. The only reason 300 and his DC films were somewhat coherent is thanks to the work put in by others before him to create the characters and stories he later butchered.
    I just love that his bot filled fanbase didn't even bother trying to defend this film. All the talk about how this would dethrone Star Wars only for it to fade in to obscurity in a heartbeat.

        Rebel Moon was like in fourth place when it debuted among the Indians. This meme that Indians love Zack Snyder was never real. Indians love the MCU, if anything. You can see it because Kevin Feige purposely try to insert fan-service in several movies like Tony Stark dressed like an Indian.

    Zack Snyder said that the Imperium is now being lead by off-world mutts brought to Motherworld that don't understand nor care about the technology nor culture.

    >Regent Balisarius, who didn't grew up in that culture not is native from that world, is far more vicious than the Slain King ever was. According to Zack Snyder, "The regent Balsarius, he's much more like a dictator. Like, as [Joseph] Stalin was. He'd be happy to raze a planet just for its natural resources rather than be like 'Oh, we should like land and see what the people are like and maybe some of them can fight for us' and, you know, like 'Maybe we could assimilate their culture into ours'. Where before it was a much more sort of 18th-century imperialism, with old king being based on the Nicholas II who was the last Tsar of the Russian Empire, where now the modern Imperium is much more aggressive than -- that was aggressive before in its way, and now it's way worse."

    >Under the more dictatorial leadership of Balisarius, the Imperium also begins to decay culturally. While there was an appreciate for art and culture, shown in impressive stained glass windows and towering architecture, the Imperium begins to decay into a more utilitarian focus and a more brutalist aesthetic. According to Producer Deborah Snyder, "There's the notion that after the royal family's death, everything became, there wasn't any need for formalities or even upkeep anymore, or they didn't try and advance in any aspect, they just, they were war machines. So everything was very practical. And they let, you'll even see with the costumes, the way they looked and then the way they currently look, it's like they still have all the detail, but it's just not taken care of like it was when the king was alive. All of that kind of gets lost, that appreciation of the art of everything. "

      Zack Snyder seems to have some weird hatred for Joseph Stalin.

      >According to Dechant, the film “is a battle between brutality and harmony.” As Admiral Noble ominously traverses the galaxy, he brings destruction to civilizations and entire worlds. Veldt contrasts the nihilism of the Imperium with its kindness and integration with nature. It’s a “place worth fighting for,” Dechant explained.
      >“They land in the village to say, ‘Listen, you guys will be our local food source while we’re tromping around this part of the galaxy. So how long till the harvest comes in?’ The villagers are pretty much stunned by the brutality, but they don’t realize what level the Mother World’s ready to go to,” Zack Snyder says.
      >“The Imperium comes down, and they want to take the women and take the children and they need more soldiers,” Deborah Snyder says. “They’re going to take their food. And [the villagers] go, ‘Look, we can bargain with them.’”
      >“This is also very close to our reality. Not so long ago in the 30s millions of Ukrainians were killed in the Holodomor, a man-made famine engineered by the Soviet government of Joseph Stalin who was pushing for the mass industrialization of the entire empire.”
      >The Imperium is more inspired by Soviet aesthetics, particularly in the officers' uniforms, while the interior of the Imperium dreadnought, for example, isn’t designed for creature comforts but is strictly utilitarian

    >The the Dreadnoughts' bridge resembling a Soviet-era submarine featuring flat metal panels and full of lights and physical buttons complete with a descending periscope. Duchant says a lot of designs are inspired by 80s-era anime such as Transformers or Mobile Suit Gundam (sans the actual giant robots) where vehicles like tanks and ships are often chunkier with rounded edges. Ships designs also targeted simplicity. Duchant recalls drawing Star Wars ships as a child and says "Zack and I talked about... making sure that the shapes were simple enough that a 10-year-old can go, this is pretty cool, and start drawing in their notebook."

    >The Imperium has been in power hundreds, if not thousands of years going all the way back to the beginning of recorded history. In that time they developed advanced technology, towering architecture, and a massive army they used to conquer new planets and assimilate their cultures. As a colonialist empire they're hardly the "good guys," but with a rich royal tradition and a sense of nobility, the culture is more "civilized" and worlds that join the Imperium (voluntarily or not) benefit in some ways, as people have opportunity to gain their own status in the Imperium though participation in the military or through other means. Snyder claims this version of the Imperium was inspired by the ancient Russian Empire.
    >The royal family is guarded by a knightly order of robots, the Jimmies, who are programmed to protect and serve the king and await the arrival of the mythical Princess Issa, who was prophesied to bring peace to the galaxy. The Jimmies bear a lot of potent symbolism relating to the Imperium and the royal family on their elaborate armor, including the symbols of a snake, a chalice, and a wolf, all of which are prominent symbolism elsewhere in the movie as well.

    >In a Caesar-style assassination, the king was killed by someone in his inner circle and Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee) takes his place. Despite the coup, the "Slain King" is still held in a place of high regard. According to Ed Skrein, Admiral Atticus Noble is "a loyal representative of the slain king," but also loyal to Balisarius. The imagery of the Slain King is still prominent throughout the Imperium, even including their currency, which features an eagle on one side with the face of the slain king and a wolf on the other side. Imperium soldiers have similar imagery of an eagle and the Slain King

    Given that a FTL space ship is impossible to build from a practical standpoint. Whatever magical technology that is used for FTL may be efficient or cheap enough that shipping bulk quantities of food from one planet to another is economically viable.

    Real world a grain with ship 50k tons of wheat on board is worth $11 million USD which is enough to justify sending a ship from the US to the other side of the world.

    Sending food from an agricultural planet to a core world might be no different to using grain from the Midwest to feed people in Beijing.

    >general of entire; legion? Army group? Whatever the frick can fit in a single ship I suppose? Personally comes down onto the surface of the planet to personally talk to the leader of a single backwater farming village consisting of like 40 people and asks for enough grain to feed his entire army... not any of the major cities on the planet, which if anything like earth, should be in the hundreds. Not some planetary governor. So fricking moronic. Then he leaves like 10 guys with regular small arms to guard it. Not ro mention the back to back cliche scenes like; bar fight, retired soldier is forced to take up arms again when a girl is about to be raped, villain acts nice in tense meeting and ends up killing someone.

    In the movie the Imperium have never been in that MOON, which is as far away from Motherworld as possible. So it makes sense that the spaceships might be running low on supplies, specially food. They exhausted themselves in the pursuit of the rebels.
    Though the rest of the movie also shows they weren't there by coincidence. They need the farming village had been feeding the rebels and that the rebels had a contact nearby. We see the orc boutyhunters taking the guy.
