    I realize now my initial reaction to TLJ last night was solely based on my own pre-conceived expectations mainly built around Luke.
    Today as I reflect on the flick, their are holes in it (as always) but I better appreciate the twists, the risks taken (for once in a long time), and ultimately the resolution for my fav character.
    Like it or not, the franchise needed a refreshing kick.
    Thank goodness.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Darth Maul was far better than any villain in Episode VIII.
    Episode One smokes Episode VIII, pretty much every way imaginable.

    Darth Maul a more compelling villian than Kylo/Ben Solo's character? Whaaat?!

    Anyway, Episode One did the worst damage of ANY of the films in two ways:
    explaining Anakins backstory through immaculate conception and the worst offense- ruining the magic of the force itself through midichlorians.

    Say what you want for Episode 8, but it's a middle chapter that was ultimately left wide open.
    It's taken almost 20 years to clean the mess Episode one left behind.

    And where the f did Nien Nunb go?
    I mean he was there for the big Resistance meeting and then disappears only to show up in the Falcon at the end of the movie.

    Man, save the galaxy once and you sure get a big head.

    Remember when this trilogy was announced how exciting it was with JJ?
    Rehash or not, it worked.
    Pretty quiet in JJ Abrams front now.
    The handlers have him muzzled to somehow save the ship again.

    Quoted from TRAMD:

    It's good that I live in SD because if I came across Rian Johnson, I would probably just punch him and I don't want to go to jail.

    You live in SD?
    Be happy Disney didn’t pay to have ringleader Katherine Kennedys face on Mt Rushmore yet.

    #1638 1 year ago

    On second viewing I did notice the Jedi texts placed on board the Falcon in the drawer. Have no idea who put them there, Rey or Yoda.
    Doesn’t really matter.

    Is there ANTHING this Rey character CANT do naturally? Any real meaningful test for her at all?

    #1664 1 year ago

    So let me ask the group, is their one plot point or storyline item you feel JJ could fix to save this franchise?

    This thing is pretty torched.

    #1676 1 year ago

    Yeah and I thought a whole lot more Bothans would be dying to bring that information, not some abandoned girl and her...
    I see a SW pattern here.

    The sad truth is all the money in the world cant buy stories with a clear vision. (Unlike the MU)
    It will take several failed attempts at expanding (or recycling) the SW universe to discover no one is invested in it.
    My jug of nostalgia is passed its expiration date.

    Ahh Boba Fett, another cool SW character whose mysticism got blown to bits when we got the lil Boba and papa Jango making clone army men storyline bs.
    But make another movie, reboot it all.

    #1995 1 year ago

    Someone shared a similar sentiment, but when people say new SW offerings are “decent” it just reinforces the fact that the helium has been outta this balloon since 1983.

    #2018 1 year ago

    I saw DP last night, not as perfect as first but good.
    I’ll wait on Solo, can’t waste money and calories for nachos with an ICEE on that one.

    #2020 1 year ago

    WTF did Disney even release these two massive movies so close together?
    Someone in that decision tree over there has to
    go - dumb.

    #2055 1 year ago

    I’d be interested in an Old Republic Series if they actually pump up the mythology and characters.

    Before the prequels started, I was excited we would actually see the Clone Wars old Ben was yammering on about!!

    Instead we got a CGI candy bowl full of droid factory’s, Gladiator pits, and Jango army men.

    Quoted from InfiniteLives:

    i want more alien tit milk scenes

    No force Luke sucked.
    Probably too late but any flashback, ghosty, or reincarnated Luke has to be better than this...

    Ive been reading similar about Palpatine influencing ep9 by tying in prequels. Remember he did mention creation of life to Anakin in ROTS.
    Wouldn’t be a bad idea given they’ve already pissed off fans, killed off the main villain, and have little time for a new one to salvage this whole thing.

    The verdict was in after the first cap marvel trailer, the story and actress didn’t sell me.
    Had a feeling the nonsense would follow as a result - now confirmed.

    Really have enjoyed supporting the marvel output, but time for reality check on this one.

    #3000 9 months ago

    At one point a “Shadows of the Empire” Chewie figure was made with battle axe and eye patch. Just an example of the rich extended universe content developed after ROTJ that could have been tapped for this trilogy.

    Instead this legacy character is placed into a scene where he is meat shamed by a porg.

    Heard they destroyed a classic Bally in CM.
    Not surprised. Nothing seems off limits.

    Quoted from Jason43:

    Seriously, what practical purpose could a fold in half lightsaber serve?

    This stuff is getting pretty laughable.
    Maybe it’s like video cameras, they fit in the pocket now!

    Quoted from taylor34:

    In fact I was a lot more excited before I saw that trailer...before I thought that there was some hope they could save things, now I have no hope.

    That trailer didn’t pull on the last nostalgic strings of our SW fandom!?

    What does Disney resort to now?!

    Quoted from Methos:

    The problem is that by bring him back, you just negated the end of Return of the Jedi and what it meant.
    But, obviously these people don't give a shit.

    Yep. This company excels at rehashing stories and tapping the veins.... over and over and..

    Do we close in on how we feel EP9 will perform? Flop or does this thing redeem itself?
    More SJW plot rumors out there, hope these are not true.

    #3930 6 days ago

    Seems any type of real reflection would only come from another franchise mouse turd at the box office.
    Probably unlikely at this point.
    Kennedy is a real piece of work.

    #3933 5 days ago

    Menace was better than clones. It’s issue was killing off both of the best new characters too soon.
    Always thought simply having more prequel aliens speak alien vs English would have changed perceptions as well.

    Very eerie how little awareness or hype exists around a movie this big with less than ten days to go..
