    Quoted from gdonovan:

    Or they could ask Leia Poppins to float down to this part of the base and wave her hand and have happy children, while singing Just a Spoonful of Sugar, lift and float the rocks away while cheerful cartoon penguins perform many an antic jig. The wind picks up, the chimneysweeps wave goodbye, and she uses her new found supergirl powers to ascend into heaven and assume geostationary orbit above the planet. She has the ghost of Yoda tucked under one arm like a football, and he blasts the Imperial battleships out of the sky in a trice with lightning bolts.

    Every time time I read this section I literately break out in peals of laughter as I imagine the scene in my minds eye.

    Carrie Fisher blasting Star Destroyers with Yoda tucked one arm.. HAHAHAHAHHA!

    Quoted from rai:

    I don't understand this, is there no one else that would take the job?

    Apparently...I doubt it though. Disney is probably too flushed with cash and Iger is too busy running a behemoth company, so he's not exactly on the forums. Like most CEOs he trusts his advisors. so as far as he knows, the fans have SW fatigue due to too many movies and not the treatment of the characters or legend of SW. He probably did not like all the hiring and firing not to mention the reshoots. I don't think they were serious about firing her, most likely the story he got was that KK is too involved and demanding in the storyline and direction, she hires (and fires) too many unproven directors and that she needs to let the creative people do their job and just try to do a traditional producer's job, which is keep everything moving and on budget. That's why JJ Asbrams is in total control of Ep 9.
    Btw, all of this my opinion....just trying to piece together all the info floating out there.

    Haha! Now they are going to tell us we are all just Russian bots!

    Gosh, I find it so funny they keep trotting out the rotten tomato rating like it was the real thing and wasn’t subject to manipulation. These people just can’t admit they made a movie that harmed the franchise.

    #2605 1 year ago

    Didn't see that coming. I agree, it's more damage control by Disney.

    Solo took a punch in the gut due to TLJ, it was an ok popcorn flick even though the lead is no Harrison Ford.

    I suppose the Russians really worked overtime to suppress the movies goers in China eh?

    Just insanity.

    Bagdad Bob at the helm of Disney waving his hands screaming there is no iceberg!

    This story is making the rounds everywhere, the actual paper only analyzes accounts that directly commented to Rian Johnson. No one actually reads it though they just spread the inaccurate headline.

    Yes it was about Rian Johnson Twitter account.

    Headline: "Last Jedi haters are alt-right trolls and russian bots"
    Actual Data: "Twitter users who directly messaged Rian Johnson to troll Last Jedi are mostly alt-right and russian bots."

    Question- How does that effect the The Last Jedi success or failure?

    #2611 1 year ago

    im not a russian bot and i gave it a shit review. I also told all my friends how shit of a movie it was.

    thats the real reason, huge fans saw it right away and saw how bad it was and told people how bad it was and less hardcore fans skipped it while the hardcore fans didnt see it more than the first time, and it was so bad a lot of people didn't see Solo just to tell Disney to f off regardless of the movies merits.

    It can't imagine how tweeting the director has any impact whatsoever on a ticket sales.

    #2615 1 year ago

    They already nuked the franchise, its dead Jim.

    Disney (Igor) is unwilling to accept or state it yet.

    Three stinkers in a row just might be enough to get the shareholders off their asses.

    Hardcore fans are not going to forgive the steaming dump Johnson and KK took on Skywalker.

    The really amazing thing to me is I have not looked at a single Star Wars rumor or fan theory in 2018. I was watching and reading many of these before this year.

    You've been too busy in this thread following reviews of reviews, box office receipts, and movie studio intrigue! I'd say it's time to drop this franchise cold. If they turn things around over the next decade or so, you can always come back and get up to speed over a long weekend.

    #2618 1 year ago

    Here is a still from the new John Favreau Star Wars tv series The Mandalorian. It gives me hope.

    has any reboot, rehash, spin off, prequel or remake ever been worth a damn? nope. its all just laziness, lack of ambition or absence of skill for that matter. Its Just the younger generation running out of ideas, trying to re-cash-in on the success of former generations. or........ it just says that the former generations cant handle "new" or "change" so they just keep selling them the same bill of goods. either way, people keep paying for shit

    Absolutely yes. One example is Battlestar Galactica.

    First two seasons were good, went of the rails after that.

    I liked the rebooted Star Trek, but it was good for only one movie, plot holes and all. Second movie had some really bad writing and I'll not even discuss the third.

    The Outer Limits reboot was really good. The Frazier spin off from Cheers was great. Doctor Who was great when it came back (though it was technically just a continuation but felt like a reboot).

    I agree on the Outer Limits, which was ok, not great and not as good as the original series.

    The best example of a remake being better is The Thing, but that was like 35 years ago.

    I agree with this 100%. Seasons 2 and 3 were phenomenal. then season 4 took a totally different tangent and went some religious route. Very disappointed on how they decided to explain everything.

    #2625 1 year ago

    Blade Runner 2049 was kind fairly good.

    #2626 1 year ago

    Hoping ep9 is good to great. Then I will just forget about TLJ and pretend it’s not there.

    Just imagining what a shit sandwich the 3 movie box set will be when it comes out in a couple of years

    Mind you 7 and probably 9 too will go down as just ok movies.

    For these new movies I've stayed away from all Star Wars rumors, leaks & theories. Didn't want to spoil it for myself. For Episode 9? I'll read anything I come across because I don't give a shit. I know it's going to be lousy. Don't get fooled when that first trailer drops either....when you see Obiwan, Luke, Vader, the Hutts, etc etc etc. Cheap fan service to generate buzz. I'm holding firm & skipping opening weekend regardless. The contract extension given to KK was just unbelievable to me.

    The Mandalorian TV series looks like it has potential though. That's a good part of the Star Wars universe to bring to the masses. Will it get me to buy a monthly subscription to the Disney streaming service? I doubt it.

    Is it alright to admit that Solo is growing on me with repeat viewings? haha

    I agree, in the hands of talented people anything can transcend. I recently watched "I, Tonya" the story about Tonya Harding, it was a movie about a white trash girl's rise and eventual demise in the world of freaking ice skating!!! You know what, it was a fantastic movie, because it was made and acted by talented people. RJ, JJ, KK and Kasdan and the rest of the gang that can't shoot straight is what is ailing this franchise...kinda reminds of pinball, we got sucked in with Bally/Williams and now we're stuck with Stern.

    My goodness look what they did to R2 for a 2018 Hallmark ornament lol. Might as well have the Porg on the top taking a crap on R2...

    I checked out a few at local Hallmark store, the prices were insane. The only question is Disney trying to get $40+ for an ornament or Hallmark?

    That stupid ornament is 40 bucks?

    In fairness to Disney, shamelessly whorring out the star wars brand is nothing new.

    #2637 1 year ago

    Hallmark has been making these ornaments since 1982 (way before Disney), I have all the spaceships they have made and some are worth quite a bit more now.
    I like all the Star Wars movies (sorry for everyones loss)....... strong here, the hate machine is.

    Still lots of rumblings that JJ is going to "fix it" and if he can do so is going to get some massive payday. I guess a contract for up to 500 million bucks might be a motivator for some folks.

    I hear one of the ways they are going to mollify Skywalker fans is show Luke being a badass post Empire.. but in my opinion that ship has already sailed. Once you know the ending.. Just makes you even more angry knowing "what could have been"

    #2642 1 year ago

    can't fix it. It's already there, and it's one of the worst movies made due to plot/writing. No movie regardless of how good it is after and repair what we've already had to witness. it's dead jim.

    Are they really offering JJ $500 million to write/direct/produce EP9? That would be truly wild.

    No, some sort of deal after.

    Also, roundhead johnson sticks his head up to tweet "Luke Skywalker so would be a cave dwelling loser given the chance!"

    “Hot take: Luke is in fact 100% consistent with his character (not the way he’s described in marketing blurbs, but his actual, based-on-his-words-and-actions character) from the [Original Trilogy]. I’ll be at the bar if you need me.”

    Quoted from jorant:

    That’s my point. I prefer the first but the sequel reboot was very good/great. I might not call it a masterpiece but it didn’t disappoint.

    Very hard to see this as I do watch a lot of sequels but not many beat the original. Godfather 2 is really not a sequel because it’s a two part movie. Don’t get me started on godfather 3.
