    ^ LOL one from the perspective of a normal moviegoer, and not a Warboi? j/k :lol:

    There was no comparison to Awakens, none at all, zero. And that's still not my favorite in the series. Judgement stands, fine is $100M plus court fees, follow the bailiff out to your right... next :eek::p

    I just watched it and I need to think about this one a bit.

    ^ Theories? If you mean my issues with the plot, there were quite a few, outlined in an earlier post... but here are more:
    • The DS-1 Death Star was under development for almost 20 yrs (they show it skeletonized at the end of ROTS). This thing is the size of a small moon -- how in the hell did they keep it a secret, with hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of crew complement, garrison, contractors, suppliers, technicians, and scientists required to both build, operate, and maintain it? It's silly that such a monstrous project could go unnoticed for so long by rebel spies, as easily as information flows in the hives of scum and villainy around the old Republic...
    • The flow of the movies is so different from the canonical 3 films, and watching FA back-to-back with R1, it's even more obvious. I feel the only scenes that felt like classic Star Wars, were the banter with K-2SO, the helm scenes on the star destroyers (ruined with Wax Tarkin), and parts of the rebel Fleet fighting as they come out of hyperspace (which was intentional enough to notice it was intentional -- the A-Wing leader being the same likeness as in EPIV, and the similar space battle sound effects). I did like the siege-and-defense scenes at the tower, as it made the combat feel more-'Band of Brothers'-less-cartoony, which was a good call, but the editing felt rushed and too terse -- you don't get to know anyone well enough by the time they get blown away.
    • And all that pomp and gnashing of teeth with Saw Guerrera, only to see him totally cave and learn to love the blast wave -- huh?

    If I tell, I'd be spoiler. ;)
    Carrie Fisher looked healthy. Her death was a sudden. :cry:

    Ohmy, it's almost as if that SPOILER tab doesn't exist!

    @stormy we're talking about The Last Jedi, not any of the other films?? Dunno what the Death Star has anything to do with it now.

    I was just seen some tailers.
    George Lucas has been first "other" person who is seen it...
    Some said at him it was too difficult for give it personal opinion for public...
    But one reason for that is officially know...
    When him talking about Carrie, it like him talking about her was him own....

    But any Carrie scene wasn't cut...
    Her only and her only was that ... You know...

    That would've been helpful clarification in the upper quote. I didn't know what you were talking about, dude... so I'm going to assume you mean 'not my issues with the plot of R1', which is what *I* was talking about...

    Not going to go see LJ when it gets here -- as both of us (my wife and I, for clarification) are aspies, so aren't looking forward to sharing a packed theater full of drunk Warbois whispering the lines to each other. You go ahead, though -- I'll watch it in a couple of weeks when I can actually enjoy the movie. :rolleyes:

    And... SPOILER ALERT -- just because it says 'spoiler' here... doesn't mean it IS a spoiler.

    @stormy I didn't even quote YOU in the message where I asked about theories???

    I quoted @hrs0722 and yet you went on with your stuff lol

    Also, you can tone down the snobism.
    If anything, tye 'warbois' are going to be the mkst respectful audience to watch this movie with as they've been waiting for years for this and they want to take everything in.

    In a couple of weeks it's all going to be full of screaming kids, so have fun with that.

    Anyway, watched it again yesterday and after the initial shock, it's now one of my favs.

    LONG LIVE THE SUPREME LEADER!

    Which supreme leader? Well. There were gambling, child slavery on horse racing, Asian girl kissing a black guy, & kamikaze. Examining people reactions, there're people praising TLJ as 2nd TESB but there're people who think it's horrible (just check RottenTomato) and Rian Johnson is to blame. Well at least he won't be the director of Episode IX.

    Singin' in the rain (no, I'm not joking, I never had watched it :blush:). I enjoyed it and the dancing parts are spectacular. 7/10
    PS: It's funny. I always believed Gene Kelly was one of the best dancers and Donald O'Connor was the 'friend' of Francis, but now I realized Donald was perhaps even a better dancer ¡and he would have been a great circus artist!
    PS2: if you don't know anything about the movie, Gene Kelly or the mule Francis...don't worry, it's only that you're too young [hehe]
    PS3: A trivia note. Debbie Reynolds was the mother of Princess Leia...

    There is no info about the new trilogy, only fans making up rumours.

    I believe it’ll be something completely new with just some Jedi or Sith action somewhere.

    As for the next anthology films, Obi Wan should be next after Han Solo.

    So the calendar should/could look like:

    • 2018: Solo
    • 2019: Episode IX
    • 2020: Kenobi
    • 2021: New Trilogy 1st
    • 2022: Anthology (Fett?)
    • 2023: New Trilogy 2nd
    • 2024: Anthology (Yoda?)
    • 2024: New Trilogy 3rd
    • 2025: Episode X?
    I really don’t want them to release more than one SW film a year.

    There is already some fatigue with superheroe films because we get at least 4 every year and the formula is getting boring (even though they still pull the numbers).

    And to think Fantastic Beasts will go on until 2026. :^^;:

    I don't think there can be 10 episode... But I think I sure that Rey not be used that person and maybe 10 is something these Rey's and Finn children's fate, are them follow wich road....
    But I think that it is going more and more gray ... There will be balance again... But how long?

    That 'old Repulic' was rich think... But what new for it are?

    Balance all begin and balance all ends... So that even if that end peace it will broken down in someyear at wery stupid reasons...

    9 is end at story of Skywalkers...
    Or to be... 9 was be end story about Vader? Well... One Sw film per year... Well...

    Reviews on a couple of NF docs (not SW-related, sorry kids... though NF has quite a few of them -- one about the fan community, hmm...)
    • The Real Miyagi -- a documentary about the legacy of a Japanese karate sensei (Demura Fumio) who gave up everything to teach in the US, and how he influenced a generation of martial artists (Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal). He was also the basis for Pat Morita's Miyagi in Karate Kid.
      Sort of long, rather plodding at times... but not all stories can be summed up in bumper-stickers. It was also interesting to hear another account about WWII aftermath, from firsthand perspectives on the Japanese side. 7/10
    • DMT: The Spirit Molecule -- interested in this topic since my gut meds work with re-uptake inhibitors. I always suppress the tendency to assert my past experiences with this subject, but sadly this was mostly a mashed-together mess of the usual personalities/word salad that stereotypically promote use of hallucinogens, so my only interest was in hearing stories of experiences. Think Erowid stories in video form... a lot of enthusiasm but too little critical thinking for me to take seriously. And someone get host Joe Rogan a suit that actually fits him. 2/10
    • Ghost of the Mountains -- doc about chasing footage of the ultra-elusive snow leopard in deep Western China. Cats' lives are just as hard as a Bengal tiger's in Madhya Pradesh, just at >14K feet & temps in the teens Fahrenheit. Locations are achingly beautiful, fiercely gorgeous and deadly. Was riveted at the kind of resourcefulness one needs just to get there, never mind live there for months. Doc was stale in places, but that's to be expected for an IRL flow of events. 7/10

    It's been so sad that Pat was already dead... Good acting and sometimes him so fun... And it's more than just these Karate kid - movies...

    Although him is Karate sensei at one tv serie ... Or joke of that...
